Welcome, blogstalkers!NEW BLOG HERE!
When I showed up at their home for baby brother's newborn photo session, his parents rushed me over to their Pinkle Toes photo wall (I love getting to see that in my clients' homes ;-) to show me just how much he looked like his big brother at his newborn session. Oh my word! They were absolutely right! It was unreal!!! We even repeated one of my favorite shots from back then--did you see THIS post?
But then, the more I worked with the little guy, the more I got to see just how different they were, too. Baby brother was much tinier, much sleepier, and was making very different expressions than his big brother did back then. It's going to be really neat to see how these likenesses and differences manifest themselves as the brothers grow up.
P.S Watching the mowers cut down some lovely wildflowers today (boooo!) reminded me of their maternity session. The sunrise that morning and the light fog was just amazing out here:

I had the extreme honor of photographing my little sister and her husband-to-be a few weeks ago on a beautiful evening in downtown Austin. It was such a special time and my gosh, we had a blast! It was such an easy thing for me to do...their relationship is so natural and their love and respect for one another shines through. He's so perfect for her and I've never, ever, ever seen her this happy. Ever. He fits into our family so seamlessly. Words cannot express how it makes my heart feel to see both my mom and my sister have found such wonderful partners in life. So very excited for their upcoming weddings!!!!

I think we all know I'm a big fan of color in photographs, but I always provide a black and white version of each image to my clients on their image CD just in case. When I processed the black and whites from this wonderful newborn session, I really loved the feel of them. The candid, real-life moments captured seemed to shine through even more when the color was removed. So, I thought I do something I've never done before in all my six years as a photographer: blog a session in black and white only.
Ooops. Wait. Scratch that. Just found a set of images that *has* to be color:
Oh well. Maybe someday I'll try that again.
I love it when we get opportunities like this to do a session in home...to really experience the environment where they brought their first baby home from the hospital after she was born. We also got to go to the nearby park where mom said they used to go before she was even pregnant...and when she was pregnant, they would take long walks and dream about the day they would hold her in their arms. What a gem to have this place frozen in time with these images!
