Sneak Peek | Sweet Baby | Katy Texas Newborn Photographer

This tiny little doll was only 5 lbs. and so beautiful! I had the pleasure of photographing her mother a few weeks ago when she was still pregnant. So I was happy to meet and photograph Baby N too! She was so calm and sweet. Congratulations to N and F on your new bundle of joy! I enjoyed getting to hold little N! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Yummy! One Year Old Cake Smash | Houston Texas Child Photographer

This is my own son, Jake. He turned one in January and I'm just now finishing his birthday pictures. He really liked his cake smash and I am so glad we have these pictures to look back on. I love his cute rolls too! He's just too cute! Happy Birthday, Jake!

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation | Infant Remembrance Charity Photography | Houston Texas

I am honored to be a volunteer photographer for the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation.

Pregnancy and birth are miraculous journeys. This amazing time of life is full of mystery, anticipation, joy, hope, and wonder. Feeling the powerful energy of birth and new life, watching as a new family is born unto each other. These things humble and amaze. These are the things that we celebrate when a baby is born.

But there is another aspect of pregnancy and birth. There is an unexpected place in this journey where some families may find themselves. When a baby dies, a world is turned upside down. There is confusion, sadness, fear, and uncertainty that cannot be explained. There is sorrow where there should have been joy. During this time, it might be impossible for families to know what they might need in order to heal in the future.

This is the place where the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart. For families overcome by grief and pain, the idea of photographing their baby may not immediately occur to them. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives. The NILMDTS mission statement is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the gift of professional portraiture. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family's healing process by honoring their child's legacy.
The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) administers a network of more than 7,000 volunteer photographers in the United States and 25 countries. At a family's request, a NILMDTS Affiliated Photographer will come to your hospital or hospice location and conduct a sensitive and private portrait session. The portraits are then professionally retouched and presented to the families on an archival DVD or CD that can be used to print portraits of their cherished baby.
