He was such a perfect little angel during his official newborn photo session (his debut appearance on the Pinkle Toes Photography blog was actually on his Birth Day). I can’t believe how he just let us dress him up and take photos all over the house, posing *just so* it seemed for every single picture. He was completely content snuggled up in his mommy and daddy’s arms, that was for sure (favorite image HERE). If I were to give out grades for a newborn photo shoot, he would get an A++++ GOLD STAR in my book, with extra credit for that adorable baby smile up there ;-0.

They may not realize it, but I teared up several times during this photoshoot for these two sisters in the stunning Texas bluebonnets. I couldn’t help but to think how lucky these two are to have one another and how lucky I am to have my own sister so close to me. The older sister is getting ready to graduate and go to college and both of their worlds are going to change so much. But at least they’ve had their childhood together and I hope that they will continue to maintain their precious bond well into adulthood and beyond. THIS pic was a special request by their mommy and I knew I was going to love it the second I took it. How did the light know to form that halo around their heads together like that?

And what do you know? Turns out today is National Siblings Day!

This little guy was SUCH an angel for his newborn photo shoot! He was asleep and cozy when we needed him to be and then alert and curious for the later half of the session. It was really a perfect blend for newborn photos. I also loved that when I first arrived, there were mimosas (for two) and a bottle of milk (for one) to celebrate Dad’s birthday…my how life changes after having a baby, huh? And then…we got to go out and take photos around/in their adorable Casita! I can see so many wonderful memories being made for him as they travel together. The connection and love flowed with authenticity and ease among this sweet family. It really reminded me of why I like doing what I do so much: getting to see those interactions on such an intimate level, watching people actually become parents, seeing the looks of wonder over their baby and one another…enough to make my heart burst with joy! Favity fav HERE.

We were barely able to squeeze in this maternity photo session in the GORGEOUS Texas bluebonnets before their precious baby made his way into this world. And, we happened to hit this field right at peak season with perfect temps and a perfect sunset to go along with it. Another FAV HERE. I hope that every year when the wildflowers come out, they’ll remember this time of anticipation and excitement over the miracle that was about to grace their lives ;-).

Speaking of whom, would you like to meet him?

Yes…he is *really* cute and I very much look forward to getting my hands on him again soon to properly appreciate his squishiness ;-).

After feeling like I had made the wrong weather call for my session the day before (it was supposed to rain, but didn’t), I was determined to play the odds and said we could meet up for his senior photo shoot in spite of the *very* small chance of rain. As I was driving closer and closer into Austin, the skies got darker and darker. I stayed positive, “Well, at least we will be able to shoot wherever we want,” I told myself. Sure enough, the minute they pulled up, a light, but steady drizzle started. I still wasn’t ready to give up and we started to shoot anyway thinking for sure the rain would stop at any minute.

Turns out, we were totally wrong. The rain didn’t stop so we decided to cut our losses and try again another day. That ended up being a very good decision because THIS super cool ATX sculpture was discovered in between our session attempts and it was a bonus to get to use it! So take THAT, rain ;-).

We wanted to do something colorful and fun for their family photo session this time, so I thought these spots in Austin would do just the trick. We were pleasantly surprised to discover some new options to add to the mix and they were the perfect “models” to do so! I love how fun and effortless they made it look and how they jumped right in to use our “props”…like this one HERE.

She is a complete angel and was so precious throughout her entire newborn photo shoot…even at the end when we were trying desperately to wake her up ;-). My favorite part was having her big brother greet me at the door by saying, “Want to come see *my* new baby?” Look at how he is with her! Yeah, I guess she kinda is *his*. And mama…I hope you are enjoying this sweet babymoon with your daughter. I know you must have all the tasks of work trying to pull you away, but work will always be there. Take as much time as you can to simply adore her. {Words I told myself when I had my own daughter 8 years ago}.

The great thing about this family is that there is virtually no “posing” required on my part. They just do. They are themselves. They play and have fun and make one another laugh out loud and invite me along to document those interactions. I’ve been working with them since (quite literally) the very day the youngest brother was born and spending time with them feels a lot like spending time with my own family and I am very grateful to be in that position after all these years. Very grateful, indeed.
