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

I can recall Lori and Bobby’s wedding like it was yesterday. I was a second shooter for my cousin Mindy, who is a Houston wedding photographer with Ree Photography. Their wedding day was beautiful and filled with love. I’ve been documenting the big and little moments in their lives for as long as I can remember. When Lori contacted me very early in her pregnancy to let me know it was time to book all kinds of exciting sessions I was over the moon for them. I’m pretty sure I squealed and ran to tell my husband!

We first planned out a fun and detailed gender reveal session that you can see by clicking here. Then came the time to show off her completely adorable baby bump! There are many pretty spots at Mercer Gardens in Humble for maternity photos or really any session. It is typically very busy, with lots of guests and a great many photographers bustling about, but with some planning it can feel very intimate and I think we did a great job of making that happen for their session.

Huck and Scout are very much a part of this family and it is always fun to include them in the Walsh family portraits. They are going to be such sweet brothers for miss Caroline to have! I mean look at those adorable faces. west houston family maternity photography by denise cowan photographyPINIMAGE

I just love that I am so often one of the first to know about a pregnancy before it is ever announced publicly. Such an exciting secret to keep! Do you have a secret to tell me? 😉 Click here to send me an e-mail all about it. It is never too early to start planning your photo sessions.

This post has been such a long time coming, as are a few others. I have some old sessions that really deserve a place on this blog. So here and there, in between current sessions, I am going to blog an older one. Play a bit of catch up.:)

I met up with this adorable family in my tiny home town of Dayton, Tx in late April for a family maternity sunset photo session. Let me just say that their little boys were amazing and SO well behaved. My own two boys go absolutely NUTS during photos, I would go into shock if they did only half as well as Eli and Carter! And, seriously, how stinking cute are these two boys?!!?  Kim, you have a gorgeous family and I’m still so thankful you all met up with me that evening for this session idea I had. I’m so happy to have gotten to know you better and I getting to photograph your newest baby boy was the best!
This next series of photos crack me up! Eli and Carter’s faces when they saw their momma and daddy kissing!!! Too cute.PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE
Geez Kim, you are just gorgeous and made my job capturing your pregnancy such an effortless one.PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE
 A great big HUGE thank you to my sweet sweet client Jessica for allowing us to run amok on her property. I had a very clear vision of what I was looking for when planning this session and Jessica was gracious enough to immediately suggest we shoot here. It was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful family and I am forever grateful! 😉

I have been wanting to do something unique for a gender reveal session for some time. This idea had been sitting in the back of my mind just waiting for someone to ask me to plan one for them. I’m so happy it ended up being for Lori & Bobby. They are one of the sweetest couples I know and we have a long photo history. 😉 I was a second shooter the day of their beautiful wedding, years ago, and have taken photos for them ever since.

I was the most nervous about this particular session though, wanting to make sure it was perfect for them and that no hint of baby Walsh’s gender was leaked beforehand. The day of their session was excruciating for me! Terrified that the helium wouldn’t last long enough, I waited around until RIGHT before time to blow all the balloons up and add the ribbon. Then, as fast as I could, get them all perfectly staked into the ground and set up in time before they arrived. I was incredibly worried they would show up early and catch me taking the bright pink balloons through the property before I had a chance to blindfold them. I kept in constant contact asking “where are you?!?!” and “don’t get here early!!!” Thankfully my family jumped in to help me get it all done and it turned out wonderfully!

It was only slightly weird guiding two blindfolded people through the woods though. haha! They were such good sports and I adore their reactions. Before I had them remove the blindfolds I asked them what they thought they were having. Bobby said “a girl”, Lori “a boy”. From her squeals and tears of joy I am positive she wanted a girl!

Sweet Caroline Kate, you are such a blessed little one coming to these people. I’m giddy and cannot wait to meet you.Gender reveal session katy texas-9PINIMAGE

Okay, taking photos of people blowing glitter off of their hands is no joke. It was painful, like being in a sandstorm..which I have experienced so I know! I ended up covered in it from head to toe and was still finding glitter in my hair days later. I should have used a different lens and stood much farther away. Lesson learned on that one! Completely hilarious memories though. Just ask Lori & Bobby. Right you guys? 😉Gender reveal session katy texas-10PINIMAGE

My husband, Jeremy, took a little cell phone video clip of the initial reveal. I love hearing Lori squeal when she realizes she is having a baby GIRL! So sweet!
