“All products have an organic, natural, vintage hint and are made with a lot of love and a great deal of patience.”

 

Look how gorgeous this nursery with our imported wooden collage.

Lily was 6 days new at her newborn session. She was almost 10lbs and extra squishy. I just loved posing her in all of the sweet newborn poses.

Mom ordered this one in a large canvas for her nursery. Pink and gold flamingos is her nursery theme, it’s going to look amazing! Just look at all of those tiny back rolls.

How cute is Miss Lily in this teddy bear hat? I adore getting their profile shots. They show off every inch of their perfect newborn face. If you are looking for a newborn photographer in Longview who specializes in newborns, look no further.

Look at her perfect cheeks. Such an adorable little bear!

I have been taking big brother Grant’s portraits since he was around 3 months old. I loved getting to capture them both together. Every mom wants a sibling portrait. Grant did wonderful during Lily’s newborn session.

Deer park newborn photographer – Lorelai

MJ’s photography is a Deer park newborn photographer. I have an in home studio just outside of Deer Park in Katy, Texas.

Lorelai did amazing for her newborn portrait session. We went through a lot of setups in my in home studio and she slept for most of it! Her parents decided to wait to find out if she was a girl or boy at birth. Mommy and I thought for sure she was having a sweet girl, Daddy was certain she was a boy. Mommy was right!

Her daddy is in the military, so we had to include a setup with his helmet! (dog tags blurred out for safety reasons)

Mommy loves flowers, things of the sea, and navy blue! Daddy loves navy blue and his newborn baby girl in pink!

We did a soft pink set up for daddy. She looks so sweet all curled up with her newborn toes.

Mommy works for a dive shop and everyone said she was having a little mermaid. I’m sure you can guess where I am going with this!

I love curling up these sweet newborn babies into bowls and baskets. It shows just how small they really are.

Capturing those tiny little details is so important in newborn photography. They grow up so fast and you want to remember every little thing about them. The newborn stage is over before you blink.

I love the potato sack pose for newborn sessions. It shows off their profile so well. Here is the setup with their navy blue! Look at those precious lips and eyelashes.

I provide all of the props for newborn sessions at MJ’s photography – Deer park newborn photographer. I bought the sweetest little leggings for a setup. Her mom said she looked like a sweet baby deer.

Most newborn photographers want their newborn babies to be asleep the whole time. I actually prefer when they are awake for a little bit. Capturing their open eyes is just another detail that you do not want to forget. Their eye color changes and so do their little expressions. Look how cute Lorelai’s newborn expressions are.

Family portraits are so important during newborn sessions. Your baby will cherish these when they are older. Here is a little share of their family portraits in black and white.

Here is Miss Zailey. She came into the studio at a little over 5 pounds and just 8 days old. She was so teeny!

Mom gave me free range with colors and of course her skin tone looked amazing with every setup! I love her sweet newborn curls in the mauve.

Mom wanted to wear one my couture maternity gowns for portraits with her newborn baby girl.

I am so in love with how they turned out. It is so important to capture these moments with your newborn baby. That first month goes by so quickly. Before you know it, they are one.

Even grandma joined in on her granddaughters newborn pictures. This will be such a special picture for Zailey when she is older.

The neutral setup with lots of white may be my favorite! She looks gorgeous with those newborn curls.

Fort Hood homecoming Photographer – Fischer’s

Fort Hood homecoming photographer | MJ’s Photography

Military Homecomings are such a special event. A short ceremony is put together for each unit coming home.  Families and soldiers have been apart from anywhere from 9 months to a year. It takes such strong men and strong women to endure these deployments! Being a Fort Hood homecoming photographer is an honor. It is one of the most emotional and enjoyable sessions that I do.  It is a moment that can only be captured once. Understanding the importance of capturing “the moment,” is so important. That first glance, the first hug, the first kiss, and those tears of joy. It all matters, it all tells the beautiful story.

The Fischer’s Fort Hood homecoming meant even more to me, Laura and I are close friends. Seeing their family whole again was nothing short of amazing. When Laura cried, I cried. Who wouldn’t cry during a homecoming? They are so full of emotion! I cry at every single one!

I get there early with all my clients. We capture the moments of them waiting, texting their soldier, and seeing those white buses pull up with them inside. This documents their story from start to finish! Every client deserves their story to be told beautifully.

Here is the Fischer’s story. ( I selected a few out of their enormous gallery)

Newborn photography sugar land | MJ’s Photography

MJ’s Photography does Newborn photography sugar land that has a studio located near Katy, Texas. MJ’s Photography specializes in Newborn, Maternity, and Family portraits.

I got the pleasure of photographing Macee’s mommy’s maternity portraits, Macee’s birth, and Macee’s newborn portraits. Being able to document this amazing time in their life was truly a blessing. Macee had already changed looks from when I took her pictures during birth. They grow and they change so fast!

Her daddy is in the Army, so capturing her with her daddy in his uniform during her newborn session was necessary. I can not think of anything sweeter.

(Note- this shot was completely safe. Mom was standing right next to Macee)Newborn photography sugar land

Here she is all swaddled up sleeping on her daddy’s uniform. Look at that little foot print showing through the pink swaddle. <3

Macee’s mommy requested a portrait of Macee wearing her (Macee’s mom) outfit that she wore home from the hospital. I’ve never had this request before and it turned out amazing! It was still in perfect condition.

Macee shared so many smiles during her newborn portrait session. She has this adorable dimple that just makes you smile every time she smiles.

Here are some other favorites from her newborn portrait session. I love baby toes! They are absolutely perfect.

Joseph Daniel-17 days old MJ’s Photography

Newborn photography Houston

Meet Joe! He was such a joy to photograph. He decided to come quite a bit early, two days before his Mommy’s Maternity session to be exact! He spent around a week in the NICU. He was 17 days old when we did his newborn session. His parents say that he is pretty alert for a newborn, but he just couldn’t resist with my tactics and was on his best behavior.

Since he was sleeping so well, we posed him in a basket for his newborn portraits. I think three Joe’s could have fit inside the basket, he wasn’t quite 5 pounds yet! But with lots of fluff, he snuggled right up! I think he looks so handsome in blue.

Fluff by : Oh So Fleeting  http://www.ohsofleeting.com/

I can’t resist newborn baby boys in a bonnet! Baby girls get the head pieces and tie backs, and little boys look adorable in knitted bonnets! I love how Joe’s little legs just curl up to his stomach!

For my sessions I provide all of the props and outfits! There is no need to bring anything, unless of course you want to!

How sweet is he in these teeny tiny overalls? I had purchased a new outfit for him to use, but he was just to teeny for it!

Look how sweet his hands are in this Ninja Turtle Portrait! Mommy and Daddy chose the top image to display on a unique wooden block for their wall! I cannot wait to see how their collage turns out! How could it not be great with how perfect this little guy is?

Here are a few more that I just have to share to with you.  Joe was gifted this amazing quilt and I love that they brought it along for him to be photographed with it.

MJ – cypress first birthday portrait

cypress first birthday portrait

Have you heard of a Cake Smash session? There are a lot of trends that come and go, but a Cake Smash session is here to stay. I am a Cypress baby photographers and I love doing Cake Smash Sessions. I typically schedule them when the baby is around 11 months old. That way they are done by the time the Birthday party is thrown!

Here’s how Cake Smash sessions go down at MJ’s Photography |cypress first birthday portrait

cypress first birthday portrait
MJ -cypress first birthday portrait

  • We plan a theme. Since most of my Cake Smash sessions are of clients who are part of my “grow with me” plan, meaning I have done their newborn portraits and 6 & 9 month milestones, we usually already have a consistent theme going with their little one. I do get new clients that come in just for their Cake Smash session, in that case we put together some ideas. I am more of a simple background kind of photographer, so I stick to the basics. What colors do they want? What theme is their birthday party going to be done in? I provide most of the props, such as the large number 1, the things for them to sit on, the background banner that displays O-N-E, and some other accessories. Of course lots of parents choose to bring more and that is completely ok!

cypress first birthday portrait – MJ

  • We plan outfits for their Cake Smash session. I allow a couple outfit changes. We usually do one outfit before the cake, that way we can get an “official” first birthday portrait. Then we change them into their “cake smash outfit.” For girls, some opt for the tutu and necklace look, a romper, or a cute onsie with a number 1 displayed. For boys, my favorite option is the shorts with suspenders and a little hat! Some other cute options are bloomers and a matching bow tie, or just a diaper cover. Again, less is more.

cypress first birthday portrait

  • Parents bring the cake for the Cake Smash session. The main reason for this is because of allergies. Each baby is different and it is safer if the parent brings the cake. I am big on baby safety whether it is a newborn portrait or a cake smash session. Most opt for the smaller cake. There is not need for a huge cake to make it a success. You want to bring the cake at room temperature, that way it is easier to dig into. Of course, living in Texas, this is never a problem! Colors to avoid? Red. Why? It is so hard to clean off of them and leaves them with a skin dye for a little while. For icing, avoid fondant-it is really hard to break into and can create a choking hazard.

cypress first birthday portrait

cypress first birthday portrait

  • Can I just assume that my baby will dig in? No. Not all babies will. My daughter wanting nothing to do with the cake and avoided it at all costs. Some do that. She also had never had cake before. Babies are hesitant with new textures, so give them a little practice run before with a small cupcake, this will help.

cypress first birthday portrait

  • Lastly, make sure to bring wet wipes, extra clothes, and plan on giving your little one a good bath when they get home!  There will be cake everywhere, but that’s the whole point of a Cake Smash session!

cypress first birthday portrait

Cake smash sessions are a blast. It is such an amazing way to capture their personalities for their first birthday.  I love photographing first birthdays. So much personalities in such little babies! The only problem with cake smash sessions is, WHY DIDN’T THEY COME AROUND SOONER! I wish I had one of myself ha ha!

Newborn photography katy tx – MJ

Killeen Newborn Photographer Temple Newborn Photographer
Fay’s Story-Newborn photography katy tx

MJ does Newborn photography katy tx. I was scrolling through a moms group on Facebook one evening when I saw a post by a mother who had delivered her baby girl at 26 weeks. I had just recently moved to the area and didn’t know a lot of people, but I saw her post and I knew instantly that I wanted to offer to drive to Austin from Katy, Texas to photograph sweet Fay in the NICU.  Right away Krystal responded with a yes! There were only certain times that Fay could be held. At 1 pound, you can imagine how fragile she was. If I am remembering correctly, it was around 11:30am when I got there. I remember scrubbing in to go into the NICU, talking to Fay’s dad beforehand, and then the first time I saw her. She was so tiny. She looked like a Barbie doll. But oh was she beautiful. I could see the personality in her right away! When Krystal finally got to hold her sweet girl, she busted into tears, which I did capture. What you don’t see, is me crying as well. I enjoy photographing newborns, this was a first for me.

Fay’s mom, Krystal, wrote a little bit about Fay’s story.

“Fay was born March 17, 2015 weighing only 1 lb 13 oz and 13 inches long. She was born at 26 weeks which is 14 weeks early. She spent 98 days in the NICU at St. Davids Medical Center in Austin. During that time she had 4 blood transfusion, was brought back to life on day 2, had a tear in her esophagus, was on a c-pap, NG tube to help her eat, got staff, and scolding skin. Fay stayed strong and on June 22, 2015 she came home. After bringing her home she had 3-4 doctors appointments a day until December of 2015. Fay had a NG tube(feeding tube) placed placed in September due to the fact that she was not growing as much as she should. After going through many different tests and seeing multiple doctors, the conclusion was made that Fay was going to be a slow growing baby. She would only gain 6-8 grams a day (average 20-30 grams a day) and had the NG tube removed. Now during all of this Fay has grown and developed beyond what anyone thought she ever would. She is eating one her own, crawling, has one doctors appointment a week, and is slowly catching up with babies her age. Some of her favorite things to do are feeding herself, chasing her two dogs around the house, getting into whatever she can, splashing in the bath, being read and sang to, and most of all she loves exploring the world around her. It truly is a blessing to get to watch her grow and become her own person.”

I had kept in contact with them after the session and we discussed her newborn session. I was so excited to be her Newborn photography katy tx.  After Fay’s 98 days in the NICU, she finally came home. That very next day, they brought her to my in-home studio for her newborn portrait session. I was overjoyed to see her and enjoyed her session so much! I finally got to hold her!

Fast forward to now. I was honored to be chosen as the Newborn photography katy tx to capture Fay’s First Birthday portraits. She was born on St. Patricks day, which you will see in her portraits. We took them in a gorgeous field in Katy, Texas.  She is 14 pounds and doing great!

Here are some images from her First Birthday and Cake smash session!

Traveling Europe-Amsterdam. Cypress tx family photographer

Cypress tx family photographer – MJ’s Photography

After London, we flew to the Netherlands capital, Amsterdam. There were so many beautiful things about this city. Flower shops are everywhere, its quite a site. Fresh flowers line the streets.

I was so shocked at the amount of people who bike there. They definitely rule the roads there. I will never again complain about loading my child into the carseat of my car in Killeen and going grocery shopping. These mommas head to the grocery store, kids in tow on the bike…while it’s raining!!! Then their groceries either hang on the handlebars or sit in a basket on the front. Did I mention it was like 30 degrees and raining. Wow. Hats off.

Jordan and I did a lot of walking. We walked the streets up and down. Some people live on boats in the river. House boats. I was amazed, I have never seen this. Of course I had to photograph it. Nice and neat, tucked away.

River in Amsterdam-Cypress tx family photographer

We also ventured into the Red light district…I had to see it, just for a moment. No pictures are allowed there of course. I walked the street once and was done. Prostitution is legal in Amsterdam, as well as weed. So if you didn’t know already, that is the basis of the Red light district. A whole different world that my mind cannot comprehend.

One of the most memorable sites that we saw was the Anne Frank house. The line wraps around the building, so if you decide to go, buy online. When we went inside, it’s like a time capsule. You are instantly taken back to the 1940s and you feel a lot of emotions. The house where they hid has been kept exactly like it was, unfurnished by the wishes of Otto Frank, but even the magazine clippings that Anne had hung are still there. If you ever go to Amsterdam, this site is a must. Pictures are not allowed inside, but below I will post an iPhone picture of the outside.

Here are some more random photos that I took. I hope you enjoy them!
