Katy maternity and family photos at home

A few weeks before the arrival of their third baby girl I got to spend some time at home with this wonderful family in Katy. They had hired me to photograph the birth, but knowing this was their last baby, they also wanted to capture a little bit of home life with the two girls before their sister arrived. I absolutely love family photo sessions at home because the kids are in a comfortable place where they feel at ease to play and let loose, show me their things, and really make me feel welcome. It captures their personalities in a way that isn’t forced. It’s just kids being kids! So after a little play time inside, and some snuggles with mom and dad, we spent the end of our session outside on the neighborhood playground. Enjoy some of my favorites from this session and come back again soon when I share the photos from the birth of daughter number three!

  • […] Thalita and Celso were expecting their third baby girl in mid September and through their midwives at the Katy Birth Center found me to document this joyous occasion. They planned a very peaceful home birth and, being that this was their last baby, they knew that photos of this experience were very important to them so that they could document this milestone. It was also especially important to Thalita to have a birth at home where should could bring her baby into the world naturally, with her midwives standing by, coaching her on all the way. This is a practice that is extremely rare in her home country of Brazil where medical intervention is commonplace and the c-section rate is above 75%. She got everything she wanted AND her baby girl arrived on her due date! At just after 1:30 in the morning on September 21st, beautiful Sophie came up out the water, pink and perfect.  […]ReplyCancel
