Houston Newborn Lifestyle Photographer | Heirloom Props

My how time flies!  It seems just like yesterday I was this sweet girl’s Houston Newborn Lifestyle Photographer, capturing a little newborn baby girl.  Now she’s a whole year older and even more beautiful, if that’s even possible!

When clients ask me if they need to bring props to a session I usually tell them no, as my studio space in Houston is filled with so many options.  I enjoy working with my clients to find out what props and design details will create the perfect session for them, and I may already have something in my studio that will work for them.

However, when someone has something special, such as an heirloom, I really love incorporating this piece in their photos.  These vintage items have sentimental value for the family and can add another dynamic layer to a photography session.  In the past I’ve seen clients bring in vintage outfits and special teddy bears from their childhood. This family brought in a cherished quilt that has been around for decades.  The star pattern is so playful and was perfect for their newborn daughter’s photos.  We decided to reuse this vintage quilt for her 1 year session as well.  She looks so cozy in her baby blue knitted outfit, which is available in my studio wardrobe, on the soft vintage cloth of the quilt.  The quilt made our Houston area studio even cozier for the time we got to spend with this sweet little one and her family.

Are you thinking of using a vintage heirloom piece in your family’s photos?  I recommend talking to your photographer to brainstorm how you can use these pieces to add that touch of history and nostalgia to your session!

Humble Newborn Portrait Photographer | Perfect Pastels

Hey guys! I’m so excited to share this session with you, especially seeing as it’s the first week of Spring! What a better session than a newborn baby girl, draped in pastels, lying on a rainbow cloud, adorned with fresh flowers?! Swoon!

Oh, this baby!! Goodness I loved snuggling with this little cuddle bug! As a Humble Newborn Portrait Photographer, I’ve seen a lot of families in my day. I love and treasure each one of my clients, but I have to admit there are a few that stand out in my mind. This couple was born to love their sweet girl. I genuinely believe they were placed here on this earth to be this sweet baby’s mommy and daddy. The love and adoration that is so evident in their eyes as they watch her sleep has truly left a mark on my heart. How lucky am I to be able to witness such love through the lens of my camera?! Love this sweet life of mine!

This client came as a referral from a long time client. What a huge compliment! I love knowing that people love and trust my work enough to send their sweet friends and families my way.

As soon as I saw the color combinations mama had picked out for this session, my creative heart started singing! I adored all the beautiful pastels and soft organic elements we used for these newborn portraits. What is it about babies and fresh florals that makes my heart skip a beat?!

Kingwood Natural Light Newborn Photographer | Worth the Wait

They say the best things are worth the wait, and boy are they right! This sweet little bundle arrived far earlier than expected, so I had to wait a month or so until I could get my hands on him. What torture for a Kingwood natural light newborn photographer! I’m happy to say though, that both mama and baby came out just fine! Now the fun begins!:)We decided to stick with a neutral color scheme with some grey and blue hues thrown in to add some depth for his newborn session. It was a textural wonderland! From the faux fur, to the knit caps; the soft swaddling blankets to the wool cloud we laid his sweet head upon, we had such a blast!

As a Kingwood Natural Light Newborn Photographer, this little guy’s session is near and dear to my heart. This was the very first session in my new studio here in Kingwood and my last session using only natural light. What an exciting time for both this little guy and Denise Cowan Photography. So many fresh starts and opportunities on the horizon. A new session to me means so many things. Progress. Transformation. Growth. My heart leaps as the thought of the beauty and sweet memories that will take place in this space. To have my own area, a place where my creative heart can run free and I can explore all the exciting ideas I’ve been dying to try, lights a fire in my heart. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for both this little man and Denise Cowan Photography.

Houston Family Photographer | Mommy and Me Session

The biggest compliment I can receive as a photographer is to have someone come back, year after year, because of the love they have for the work you do. There really is no better feeling! I’ve been capturing the love that flows so freely between these three kiddos and their mama, Kim for years. Each time, I leave with a smile on my face and a full heart. A more photogenic family would be hard to find! Just as beautiful on the inside as they are in these images. I almost think I walk away from these sessions loving the outcome just as much, if not more, than Kim! Oh, how I love being a Houston Family Photographer!

When you meet another mama of three boys, it’s hard to not develop an instant friendship! Both of our sets of boys are all around the same age, so the fountain of stories hardly stops flowing when we get the opportunity to catch up. I was so thrilled when she approached me about this mommy and me session. I knew it would be absolutely breathtaking, and I’m happy to say, I wasn’t disappointed! She has such an amazing sense of style and always dresses her little men perfectly. We decided to stay with neutral colors which really let the boys and their mama shine. And boy, did she shine! How gorgeous is she?!

As a mama of three, I know just how important it is to document, not only the exciting stages of their lives, but the sacred bond shared between you and your little ones. What a wonderful afternoon it was, spent in the golden light of Kim and her amazing kiddo’s company!

Kingwood Newborn Studio Photographer | Sweet Miss Savannah

Welcome to this big wide world Savannah! Sweet girl, you are so dearly loved by your amazing mama and this Kingwood Newborn Studio Photographer!

I first met Savannah’s amazing mommy during their first newborn session with me a couple of years back. Have you ever been talking with someone, and suddenly…something just clicks? That was Sara and me! We immediately hit it off. She soon became my trusted babysitter, and any of you moms or dads out there know what a gift that truly is! I have found such sweet comfort in our friendship over the years.

With little ones as cute as precious Savannah, it’s hard not to just sit and enjoy the quiet serenity of her peaceful presence. But we had a job to do! After a quick feeding (and maybe some well needed catching up), we got straight to work. Between some strategically placed snuggle breaks, I really was able to get some truly stunning shots of the newest edition to Sara’s sweet family.

When capturing Savannah, I wanted to use an eclectic mix of props and various floral elements to add to the depth of the images. Scroll down to see all the soft knits and floral bands that were used throughout this session. You may just spot Santa’s newest reindeer in training! 😉

Savannah here is Sara’s fourth and final little one. I swooned on the spot when I finally got my hands on her! Such a perfect little chunk! It was all I could do to not nibble on her perfect little toes! What an honor it was to document such precious time in their lives. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for Sara and her beautiful family. With a spirit as sweet and kind as her’s, I can only imagine it’s going to be a wonderful journey.
