Introducing Raelynn!

Welcome to the world Raelynn! | Fresh 48 Session Edinburg, TX

Is there anything sweeter than the smell of newborn babies? This sweet baby was only hours old when we had the pleasure of meeting for her very first photo shoot.

Raelynn was welcomed into the world on 6/28/2019 and her family was so happy to meet her! Her parents, along with her big brother and sisters were over the moon.

It was so beautiful to walk into the room this afternoon to find this sweet family’s room filled with family and all the excitement that a new baby brings.

What an honor it is to walk in and document all the details on the same day when baby makes their debut.

Thank you to the L family for welcoming me on this special day!

The L Family initially found me on their visit to Belly View Ultrasound. If you haven’t visited Monica at Belly View, you may want to if you plan on learning your baby’s gender. When you drop by, let her know you heard about her by reading this blog. ;)

Check out some more photos from our session with Raelynn and her sweet family.

Sweet sleepy Raelynn slept through most of her session…

Her tiny fingers and toes will never look the same! Isn’t it incredible how fast these little ones change?

Raelynn’s first photos with her daddy and big sister.

Mommy and me… just a few hours earlier, mom was eagerly waiting to meet her newest little one. It’s always so wonderful to have these first cuddles with your little one and have the moment documented to cherish for years to come.

The beauty of documentary photography is that anyone in the room can be a part of your session. These grandmothers took turns loving on the newest member of the family. What a beautiful moment.

Hello little one. Mommy and Daddy have been waiting for so long to finally see your beautiful little face.

Big sister meets her little sister… I can see all the anticipation in her face. I bet these girls are going to be best friends. #ohmyheart.

Thank you for checking out the blog today! Leave some love for the L family in the comments.

I hope you are inspired to document your our parenthood moments. If so, let’s chat. Each season of life is special and I would be happy to work with you and your family soon!

Love and Light to you and yours…

Welcoming Twins!

Welcoming Twins at The Women’s Corner in Edinburg, TX

Kim and I got to chat a few weeks back about documenting the birth of her twins in January. This sweet family was patiently waiting to learn whether big sister would have a brother, a sister or both pretty soon.

When you are on team green, the anticipation builds and the excitement in the birth room can be amazing! I can’t imagine how the anticipation felt as they waited for their twins to be born! Two babies!! Ahhh! So much love.

It was truly an honor to witness the birth of littles. Welcome to the world little ones! You have an amazing family ready to shower you with so much love!

It’s a girl! It’s a girl!

Witnessing a little one take their first breath is always so mesmerizing and on this day, it was a double treat. Congratulations S Family! You have such beautiful little girls and I’m sure it will be an adventurous journey ahead for y’all! It’s been an honor to document your journey.

If you are hoping to document your family’s story, I’m here to help! I’d love to help you get in the frame mama.

Hospital Newborn Sessions | McAllen, Texas

I want to take a moment to talk a little bit about Fresh 48 sessions and why you should consider one for your next baby's birth. 

Those first few hours in the hospital/home/birth center are incredible. You have just met your sweet little one and there's so much oxytocin running through your body. Your baby is perfectly fresh, sleepy and new. 

Within the last couple of days, you have experienced one of life's most incredible highs. With time, so much of those busy days becomes blurry and details fade. Your baby will never look this way again. Ever. Isn't that incredible? Newborns change so fast in those first few weeks.
