Hello Hello! I am back in the blogging game you guys. This time for real. I am going to be so on top of this.
Let me introduce you to something. His name is Maverick and he is the first baby boy I’ve gotten to shoot in a loooong stream of adorable girls. Weighing in at 10 pounds, I believe his mama said, and those little eyes that match his big sister’s. He stole my heart y’all!
This little family has been a part of my client family since 2016. Believe it or not, I met them when that curly haired little beauty was still in her mommy’s tummy. It was one of my favorite maternity sessions.
Then I found out they were expecting baby number TWO and guess who got to photograph that maternity session?
It was perfect and beautiful! I was so excited to finally meet baby Maverick when we finally had his newborn session in their gorgeous new home. Especially because his gender was a surprise just like his big sister’s was.
Here are some of my favorite moments of his newborn lifestyle session!
Oh and don’t forget, I offer discounts on baby bundles! Contact me here for details.
Maternity sessions are something I have a real passion for. I love making a mommy-to-be feel like she is the most beautiful human being on earth in that moment. Being 8 months pregnant myself right now, those “I’m a goddess” moments are few and far between, let me tell ya!
I was so excited to shoot this maternity boudoir session for my gorgeous client, Priscilla. She was amazing! It’s so hard to believe that later that same month, she had her precious baby girl.
Here are some of my favorite shots from her maternity boudoir…

What’s a Fresh 48?
It’s a question I get a lot. Fresh 48’s are a newer type of session but they are one of my favorites to shoot. A Fresh 48 is a session that is shot within the first two days, and sometimes 3 days, of your newborn’s life while you’re at the hospital. No fancy outfits or woodsy locations, just a mommy, daddy, and a precious baby. Parents still glowing with the love and awe of a new little person in their life. First timers and veterans are exactly the same during those first moments. Everyone loves a new squishy little one. Personally I can’t get enough of those precious cries and oh that baby smell. There is nothing like new baby smell. Seriously, next time you have a chance, smell a newborn. With parent permission of course!
I was lucky enough to follow the Blair family from maternity, to fresh 48, to newborn session. I love being able to do that. It gives me so much time to become familiar with them from pregnancy to the first couple of weeks home. Brogyn was the perfect baby. She was awake for a minute and then out like a light when she was swaddled. She and mommy wore the most adorable matching outfits from Posh Peanut, the colors were perfection. It was probably my favorite Fresh 48 session of the year.
Here are some of my favorite photos from Brogyn Rae’s fresh 48!

Saturday morning, I woke up before my alarm as usual. I had a busy day ahead of me and I guess my brain just wanted a head start on it all. I took a peak outside…cloudy…darn! I was hoping it would clear up before the indoor session I had this morning which was not entirely crazy considering I live in one of most finicky states when it comes to weather. Not much longer later, I grabbed my equipment, my boots, and my keys and I was on my way to Aubrey, Tx.
As I drove through what I can only describe as a perfect replica of The Truman Show neighborhood, I couldn’t help but think “this is SO Sammie”.
I have known Mrs. Samantha Kupiec since I was 12 years old. I moved to Irving, Tx the second semester of 7th grade. Practically a teenager, I couldn’t tell you the many emotions I felt about moving the 340 miles South East of the town I grew up in. I remember being in home room and a sweet curly blonde haired girl starting talking to me. It wasn’t long after that, that she became one of my closest friends. So many sleep overs, laughs, manicures, and secrets I have shared with this girl. I’ve watched her walk down the isle. I’ve cried when she shared the story of her trying to conceive her first son Graham. And here I was now, about to take her maternity photos for her second child, another boy, Harrison Tate.
Sammie, you have grown into an amazing, beautiful, loving wife and mother and I couldn’t be happier for you and your family. I love you girl!
Here are some of my favorites from the Kupiec Family’s maternity lifestyle session…

Congratulations Sammie, Sean, and Graham!
