My business has grown as has my family, so most days there just aren't enough hours to get everything done. Not long after my daughter was born last year, Mike and Evelyn contacted me to set up a newborn session for their baby boy on the way. Baby Wesley was born in June, and what a little charmer he was! I really enjoyed spending time with Wes and his parents and told them about the shiny brand new Baby's First Year packages I was beginning to offer. As my daughter was only a month old, I had a constant reminder of how quickly babies change in their first year of life. I thought First Year packages would be a great way for parents to collect portraits of their babies beyond the newborn days and before their first birthdays because so many changes happen between those two milestones. So baby Wesley became my first Baby's First Year subject and model. We are coming up soon on his nine month session, and it's been so fun to watch him grow over the past several photo sessions. He's the master of awesome facial expressions and he leaves me smiling from ear to ear both while photographing him and polishing off his photos. I'm already getting a little sad thinking about him turning one year old. Maybe he deserves a little baby graduation cap and gown when he completes all of his First Year sessions? ;)

Here are some photos from Wesley's newborn, three months, and six months sessions. Such a beautiful little guy inside and out!

M Family: Austin Portrait Session https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2015/2/m-family-austin-portrait-session I can definitely relate to how quickly second children grow up. When they contacted me, M family's baby girl was already four months old and they wanted to have portraits done before time slipped away even more quickly. Big sister was so sweet and loving with her little sister. I love their sister cuddle time photos!

Baby William: Austin Newborn Session https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2015/2/baby-william-austin-newborn-photography Well, hello! My sincerest apologies for not sharing photos in many months. I promise, it's all for good reason. I have been so, so busy photographing babies and families. So without further ado, it's time to finally share some of my work from the past several months. 

This is adorable baby William and his sweet parents, Cherisse and Michael. William was born back in November. I was so impressed with his parents and their sense of calm with their first baby. I left their house with such a serene feeling (that didn't last long when I returned to my own munchkins). Kudos to creating a calm and loving environment for sweet baby boy. :)

The family was preparing to meet their little one, and she has since arrived safely into the world! I can't wait to meet her in a few short weeks at our newborn session.  :)

Jenn, Brendan, and Baby E https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2014/3/jenn-brendan-and-baby-e I loved the cuddles and smiles that flowed from this sweet baby girl.  The satisfaction and pure joy are evident on the faces of her parents.  It's such an amazing time in a couple's lives as they welcome a child for the first time.  Being able to capture such a time feels like an honor.  I know how treasured these photos will become as baby grows up all too quickly.

My Favorite Image of 2013 https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2014/1/my-favorite-image-of-2013 I like to enter my work in competitions from time to time as it challenges me to continue to learn and grow.  Rock the Shot Forum is hosting a contest this month for photographers' favorite images of 2013.  There are many gorgeous entries and I've decided to enter one of my own.  As I reflected on my work over the past year, the image that stood out in my mind surprised me because it is not a portrait I had planned.  It was a very impromptu grab of my camera due to powerful emotions in the moment.

My two-year-old son was about to leave us to walk behind hospital double doors and undergo surgery.  This was a moment I had worried about and feared for months as I wondered how to best prepare him for what I thought could be a traumatic event.  He shattered every notion when he bravely took the nurse's hand and walked down the hallway with her.  He turned back to tell us goodbye, and this moment forever redefined my definition of courage.

Jill and Alvin's Wedding https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/9/jill-and-alvins-wedding Jill and Alvin had me from the moment I arrived and saw the amount of love that went into their wedding preparations.  My absolute favorite part of their decorations was the garland made of photographs of "perfect pairs".  You'll see from the photos that they had a lot of fun preparing these creative photos.  I was also amazed to hear that Jill made her own dress (!).  The wedding was held at the beautiful historical home of friends, who also provided homebrew beer.  The couple wanted to include friends and family in the festivities as much as possible.  Guests read poetry, sang songs, and one even quoted Mob Wives (a real show, apparently).  I loved witnessing the various ways friends and families expressed their love to the couple.

Leighton https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/8/leighton When Leighton's parents asked me to focus on photographing her being herself, I was stoked.  I love portraits of kids being kids.  I love the expressions on their faces as they are swept up by activities they enjoy.

 

Leighton loves being outside, blowing bubbles, and swinging.  She also loves birds and I was quite impressed that she is already starting to identify them.  She does think that lots of birds are grackles, but can't we also say the same of many adults?  :)  

 

I love the spirit in this little girl.  Taking her portraits made me think of one of my favorite quotes:

"While we try to teach our children about life, our children teach us what life is all about."  -Angela Schwindt

Elizabeth, Mark, and Luke https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/8/elizabeth-mark-and-luke Little Luke is four months old and growing up quickly like all infants do, so his parents wanted to have some family photos taken to remember this time in their lives.  We met by Austin's iconic PennyBacker Bridge on a nice quiet morning.  Luke's first tooth had just come in the night before, and it was remarkable to me how sweet and happy he was considering the lack of sleep and pain he surely experienced.  That definitely says a lot about his personality!  

 

Mark is a pilot, so I think the photos of Luke "flying" are extra cute.  The love this family has for each other is evident in their smiles...such a sweet little family.

Reflection in a Bubble https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/8/reflection On a recent early morning shoot involving bubbles, I shot this photo over the nearby lake.  I love the reflection of the terrace, trees, and sun.  

This month's photo challenge at Rock the Shot Forum is reflections, and this is my contest entry.  See more photo entries as www.rocktheshotforum.com.

Amy, Chad, and Charlie are Ready for Baby https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/7/amy-chad-and-charlie-ready-for-baby Amy, Chad, and Charlie are expecting their baby any day.  I don't want to give too much away, but his name will mean "water crossing", so Amy chose their photo location with this in mind.  I love the meaning behind these photos and loved spending time with this adorable family.

Megan and Jon in DC https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/7/megan-and-jon-in-dc On a recent visit to Washington, D.C. was able to meet up with Megan and Jon to take their engagement photos.  We had a great time jaunting around D.C. and Georgetown.  Most of the places we went were new to me, and Megan and Jon did a really good job choosing them.  I love the vibrant and verdant backgrounds in their photos.    

 

While we were taking photos near some beautiful hydrangeas outside a home in Megan and Jon's neighborhood, the homeowner happened to return home from a walk with his dog.  He was thrilled to see a happy young couple using his garden as a photo background and insisted on cutting a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers for Megan.

Mamma Vicki https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/5/mamma-vicki Vicki and Larsson are expecting their first child in a few months.  They live in Seattle, but met and fell in love in Austin.  Vicki recently returned to Austin for a short visit and asked me take some photographs of her as a surprise for Larsson.  We met at Bull Creek, one of Vicki's (and my) favorite Austin spots.  Photographing such a radiant mommy-to-be in such a gorgeous location put my heart in a happy place.

A Beautiful Austin Birth https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/5/a-beautiful-austin-birth To me, it is a huge honor to be asked to photograph a childbirth.  I find the process inspiring and meaningful, and I hope my photographs beautifully and honestly document such a big moment in the growing family's life.  Birth photos are extremely private, but here are a few glimpses into a beautiful birth I was recently honored to document.

Sarah, Rich, and Jack https://www.meganspetersphotography.com/blog/2013/5/sarah-rich-and-jack Sarah, Rich, Jack, and I spent some time on South Congress before baby girl arrives.  Sarah and Rich took wedding photos in some of the same spots several years before, when they dreamed of growing their family.  It warms my heart to see how their family has changed since then!
