Mini sessionsduring the holiday season are always so much fun for me. I get the chance to take photos for many different people, from couples to families and even pets. This allows me to grab a variety of shots in a pretty short time frame. Plus, let’s face it, families with little ones can’t always last a whole hour anyway so you really have to leverage the “focused” time you can get!
Here’s a collage of photos from my holiday photo session in Plano, TX with the London Family. They are returning clients, and their girls are all so full of life!
They went with red, white, and navy as their color scheme, and I brought along my navy quilt to accent their photos.

Lately I have been thinking about what other props I could add to my maternity offerings. I currently have maternity gowns with lace and chiffon, wraps, and some jewelry but I wanted something more. Sooo….
I decided to make a pretty flower crown to add to my props for maternity shoots. “Well hello, Pinterest! You haven’t failed me yet.” So after browsing all the photos on this wonderful “idea site”, I settled on a color pallette and bought all of the materials. I sat in the bed and just started putting flowers onto a base and voila – DIY floral crown! The circle base for the crown was actually made from flower stems put together instead of wire – I may have forgotten to buy wire at the store (oops) but it worked out in my favor.
I put together a quick collage to share a little bit of my process so anyone that is interested can make their own. Please ignore the photographer in the image and the bad room lighting 😛 – when taken outside and placed on a gorgeous pregnant mommy it will shine. I can’t wait to use this on my next maternity session (with a willing client).
I had the pleasure of photographing a sweet little girl who was so excited to have her pictures taken that she was awake the whole session! Lillian Grace only closed her eyes for a second or two as we took pictures with her daddy, but otherwise she was bright eyed and curious of her new surroundings. Her parents brought in some of their own blankets that match her nursery so we have a variety of new prints shown too. With all of that, her 7 day old pictures turned out nicely (how couldn’t they with such a cutie?!), and I look forward to seeing her grow!
Sweet Emma has grown up so fast! It feels like I took her newborn pictures just yesterday, and here she is about 7.5 months old. She is growing up beautifully and is still just as sweet as she was with the cupcake hat on. 🙂
Beautiful day, lovely location, and wonderful model! Natalie was so sweet and such a great model during the maternity session. The long white gown makes her look like a goddess in my opinion – take a look and decide for yourself. I’m excited to meet Natalie’s little girl next month!
