I LOVE newborn babies! I don’t typically photograph them, am in a semi-retirement, but when I do, I love to “capture the scene” of a family from a distance. I have a friend that lives in California, but her brother lives in Austin near me, and when she asked if I’d photograph her brother and his family, I couldn’t refuse.

I’ve got a bunch of adorable shots to share, enjoy!

Lilly was simply the sweetest–one of the calmest babies I’ve had the pleasure to photograph. At just under 2 weeks old, this is the perfect time for a newborn session.

I shared this picture on Instagram a few days ago, I adore their cute little pup peeking to check out the new addition!

She tested out her crib for the first time, she looked so small! I love that artwork “L” and the elephant mobile above her.

She was awake for most of our session, but she drifted off to sleep off and on, and we could tell she was having a nice rest, by her grin.
