Modern Baby Girl Photo Session at Home | Houston Newborn Photographer
Dear Marlowe Photography • Houston, TX Baby Photographer
I know I say this almost every blog post, but this really IS one of my favorite newborn lifestyle sessions EVER! Being a family photographer here in Houston means I get to grow with my clients. I met Stephanie and Clint around a year ago when I had the privilege of photographing their soon to be family of four during my Holiday Mini Sessions. They were a dream to photograph and still have one of my go-to outdoor galleries. I was honored to be chosen by them once again as their Houston newborn photographer as they welcomed little Elise earthside.
As a Houston newborn photographer, there are few things closer to my heart than a welcoming mid century home, a perfectly put together nursery, and a meant to be modern sitting chair just waiting to be graced by a brand new baby. Clint, Stephanie, and Ann Marie were one of the many who lost nearly everything due to Hurricane Harvey. Having just moved back into their neighborhood after over half a year of being displaced, they were worried that their lack of furnishings and not-yet-homey home wouldn't photograph well. My job as a Houston newborn photographer is to make the not so pretty, the not so finished, and the not so magazine worthy homes LOOK pretty, finished, and well, magazine worthy (side note: the Martins home WAS completely magazine worthy).
When I welcomed my own babies, I distinctly remember how engulfed I became in designing and decorating their nurseries. I would sit in my baby Marlowe's room for an hour at times, rocking her in my belly, wondering how she would sound and how she would feel and how I would love her beyond existence. Now second babies, they change you. As in, mama is TIRED. I didn't even plan to do a nursery for my 10-pound Sawyer, my second born, but as a last hoorah (read: 32 weeks) I thought, what the heck! Let's go for it. And I LOVE what came together. Baby Elise's room proves no different. From precious pink accents, to modern gold details. Deep hints of navy paired with a one-of-a-kind floral accent wall. This nursery tugged at my heartstrings and I simply couldn't get enough.
Now while I AM a lifestyle newborn photographer, I don't mind throwing in a few minimally posed pictures of baby now and then and during this session, I captured one of my all time favorites. Stephanie had a pair of rich, navy chairs in the living room–a perfect compliment to the blush pink wrap and bow I had for baby Elise. I followed this up by placing baby girl on a boppy lounger covered with a piece of jersey fabric I stretched and held with each free limb and voila, instant newborn studio! I am a Houston newborn photographer of many talents after all!
I can't wait to see the Martin family grown into their new (old) home as they say goodbye to Harvey and hello to sweet Elise.
