Love, hearts, and fun photography with the cutest Valentine in Dallas

I had the honor of meeting the cutest valentine in Dallas. This guy is one of the most adorable. And y’all, if you look close you will see the sneaky sleepy face that he has. Between Christmas and Valentine’s Day I love having the sweet little ones in the studio for some warm, hearts, loving Valentine Sessions. This year was all about the guys! It was fabulous! I love the hearts and loving smiles. Check out sweet little F in a few recaps of his sweet session.

What it Takes to Succeed at a 365

or at least to make it a month during a 365

So I started my actual 365 in August but relaunched it in January because, you know start of the year new beginnings blah blah. You know the drill. Do you know what it takes to succeed at a 365? It takes patience and understanding. Pretty much that is all. Just kidding. It takes a lot more. So here you go, here are three rules to help you succeed at a 365.

1. Make SMALL goals

like you are going to take one picture a day for a month. A month seems so much easier to shoot than a year right? So start with one day. Then another day, then a week. And then you will be at a month in no time. Just make your goals small to begin your 365 project.

2. Choose your own Rules

When I first started my rules were I can use any image with a DSLR. It could be client images or personal images. Now I have changed it. Now my 365 has to be personal images. But y’all that doesn’t mean they are good images. Y’all I took a picture of my twice baked potato one day. Seriously. And it wasn’t even creative. But it fit my rules. And if you follow me on instagram you know that today I took an image of my sons foot. His big ole 13 year old foot. Weird right? But again it is my rules. While I was away at Imaging, I took a photo out of the window of the hotel and an image of water in the shower. Y’all not my best work ever. But y’all, some of the others I just love!

3. Give yourself Grace

Don’t be too hard on yourself during your 365. Take photos of potatoes. Take photos of your kids feet. Take photos of whatever makes you happy. And some days you are going to have to take photos just to get that darn photo. I started to take some in the mornings just to get it out of the way if I know it will be a busy day. It’s ok. You deserve a little grace. So here is my January y’all. It was so worth it. I am already looking forward to February.

Reason Everyone Loves Dallas Newborn Photography

Wanna know the reason everyone loves newborn photography?

I am going to let y’all in on a little secret. Babies grow up. I know, I know. It really isn’t a secret but I think we forget. This is the reason everyone loves Dallas Newborn Photography. Because photographing your newborn will keep them small. Even if it is in a photograph. That photograph will stay with them forever. And they will be able to s how their babies and their grand babies about when they were little. Growing up is a part of life. A part that we in the Dallas metroplex do not have to miss. We can keep them newborns forever with the right photo session.

.

I mean think back to when your sweet little one was a few days old. And then to when they were a month old. Wasn’t the change incredible? It was for me. And then one day you will look up and be eye to eye with you baby.

3 Steps to an Exceptional Newborn Photography Session

Are you overwhelmed about your upcoming newborn session?

Don’t be! You have enough to fill your time with preparing for you new baby. Dallas has some of the greatest baby stores and newborn prep groups available. But what about your photography session? Here are 3 steps to an Exceptional Newborn Photography Session.

Step 1

Decided which type of session you prefer… in home or in studio.

I offer both in home and in studio newborn sessions. The only real difference between the two are your family images. In home sessions have more of a lifestyle feel when it comes to your family images. I like to use your master bedroom or your nursery or even capturing y’all cuddling on the couch with your newborn. Then I will do my typical newborn session in a small area on the main floor of your house. In studio sessions have more of a studio feel to your family images. Classic portraits for you to treasure forever.

.

Step 2

Choosing your colors.

I tend to ask what your babies nursery colors are. They usually are the best colors for a base color for your session. If you already know that you are wanting a large print for your nursery the colors will automatically blend beautifully. If you prefer an album then I will match the colors to flow in an elegant pattern.

.

Step 3

Relax.

Having a new baby is one of the most challenging and wonderful times of your life. It is also one of the most stressful sometimes. Don’t worry about your session. I have been blessed with photographing beautiful babies and I have seen almost everything. This is your time to enjoy the beauty that is newborn photography.
