Katy and Houston, Texas Newborn Photography by Denise Cowan Photography » Katy Texas Newborn and Family Photographer

When Beckie contacted me during her pregnancy about scheduling photos of her newest daughter I was thrilled. I’ve known Adaylnn’s mommy for at least half of my life and have many memories attached to her and my teen years. 😉

It is always such an honor when a friend comes to me for photos. She wanted creative newborn photography, and even though it was a bit of a drive, was happy to make the trip to my Katy, Texas studio. We had fun chatting about all kinds of things and I just loved having her sweet girls in front of my camera.  Beckie gave me free reign, which is always blast for me. We talked about some of her favorite colors and just let it flow from there.

This little doll was the perfect model during her newborn photos and slept like a dream, allowing me to do all kinds of poses and never batting an eyelash. She certainly wins the award for easiest baby of 2014! Ten days tends to be a perfect time for newborn photos with me.

The beautiful tieback, picture above, was made by the crazy talented Little Acorn Props! I just love working with Savanna and highly recommend her for newborn props.

Little miss cracked a few smiles throughout the session. Most of the time I am able to catch these smiles so quickly that mom never even knows when they happen, saving these sweet surprises for the gallery reveal.

The bonnet you see in the photos was made by the same vendor, Little Acorn Props. The lovely colorful knit blanket is from Simplistic By Sondra.

Big sister Ava was so gentle and perfect with Adalynn for the sibling shots. As a mom of three little boys, I know how special it is to have a photo of all my babies together and love when it comes together so beautifully for my clients.siblings in white katy texas studio newborn photographerPINIMAGEsisters in white newborn photographer west houstonPINIMAGEgirl in white west houston photographyPINIMAGE

One of my favorite things we do as a family is go on these little walks in the evening after daddy gets home from work.

The boys LOVE it and Ephram never wants to go home. He would keep going and going. Convincing him to turn around and head home is often a struggle. On this day Oren was the one that wasn’t too interested in turning around to go back, as you will be able to tell when you see the last few photos!:)

I always have my cell phone with me for snapshots during our outings but I’m bad about grabbing my big camera when we head out the door. I’m so glad I did on this day. There is even a self-portrait of my 22 week baby belly. (I’m nearly 26 weeks now)

(check out my personal instagram for more shots of our daily activities!)

Really feeling like I could do a whole session for someone around these areas!!

When you’ve finished this post be sure to follow the circle around to my sweet friend Jeanna!


Treasures. My boys and the things Ephram brought me during the course of our walk. Hard to believe that in 14 weeks I’ll have another sweet boy to add to these photos! The time is really flying by this pregnancy and I’d like it to slow down a bit.


We haven’t walked in a while it seems. It has been raining a lot lately and the mosquitos are out and love to eat my littlest alive. I’m also not looking forward to the incredible heat that comes with a Texas summer, especially being pregnant during it!

Now please take a moment to check out what a day in the life looks like for Jeanna. Also, be sure to find her on facebook for more of her beautiful lifestyle photos.

Today is the big ultrasound day for us. You know, the one where we find out if this growing babe is a third baby boy or a baby girl!! I am SO. EXCITED. However, we won’t be spilling the gender beans until after Easter. We have plans for a fun Easter themed gender reveal at our family party on April 20th. That 11 day wait to share the news may be my undoing. Also, not telling Oren is going to drive me crazy!! It is just too risky telling him, there are some…I won’t mention any names (you know who you are) who would try to pry it out of him and I know he would cave. I mean, he is 6 after all. So, until then, I thought it would be fun to share what all the old wives tales and various other myths have to say this baby is. I’d love to get your input as well so please leave a comment! 😉


Family guesses:

Jeremy- GIRL

Oren- GIRL

Ephram- Has no idea how his life is about to change, my sweet momma’s boy.

Me- I keep that a secret until after since they say that mother’s intuition is 70% right we don’t want anyone to have an unfair advantage in our little guessing game. 😉

aunt LeAnn- GIRL

uncle Jason- GIRL

aunt Sharon- GIRL

Granna- GIRL

Paw-Paw- “one of each” (for the record, there is only one in there and he knows it!)

uncle Jacob- BOY

Seems to me there is some wishful thinking going on here!! I’m happy to have another beautiful baby no matter the gender.

And because I hate to leave a post with no photos here are a few. My 8 week ultrasound and a few belly shots. Today I am 18 weeks 4 days. I’ll do another belly shot at 19 or 20 weeks.

It feels as if it has rained all of March. There were a few glimpses of spring here and there but it hasn’t been near enough for me or these boys! We’re ready for a bit of warmth and sunny days to play outside. After school on this rainy day we were rather bored so I pulled out some art supplies and let the boys exercise their creative sides.:)Ephram spent some time painting himself and seriously considered licking the paint up several times. Oren chose to paint a portrait of a dragon toy. He stressed over his ability to draw and paint it but with a little encouragement he did a really fantastic job.

This has been a long time coming I suppose, Ephram’s first hair cut. I just could not part with those pretty curls until now. We took him to the same person who cut Oren’s for the first few times. For the memory and because Justin was so good with Oren as terrified and all over the place as he was. I had no idea what to expect from Ephram. He is my wild one and SUCH a screamer. I can’t even tell you how much of a screamer. He shocked us by just sitting there, patiently letting Justin cut his long hair. Only wiggling a few times when it tickled his little neck. He was cracking me up too much to feel sad at the time and as much as I smiled going through these photos I also felt that twinge of sadness at how time has flown with him. Thank God we are having another baby or I would be a mess. Well, except for the fact that I cried today while cleaning out his closet of the things that no longer fit and hanging bigger clothes in their place. Either way, forgive the overload of images here, I have my mommy goggles on big time today.

Be sure to scroll through to the end and follow the “a day in the life” blog circle around to my friend Bjorna’s post.
