Can I get family pictures at my newborn session? | Dallas, TX Newborn Photography


Many times when I get inquiries mama asks if they can get family pictures at the newborn session too.

The answer is, YES! I am not there just to take pictures of your sweet newborn (though I may spend extra time doing this especially if they are sleepy and content!) I want to capture your full family, pets included at your session! This is about your growing family.

While I always make sure to get all the details of your sweet new babe, I grab a variety of pictures to make sure you can look back and remember these first few days or weeks with your baby.

Mama and BaBY

Mama, we capture you and your little one! These are some of my favorites. I want to capture you in your element. Snuggling your baby in the nursery or rocker. Admiring your new little one as you hold him or her. The things you do on the every day, and place you will spend so much time in the first months and year of their life. And not to worry, if you have older children, we capture you with all your littles!

Daddy and Baby

Daddy and his sweet baby girl or boy! It is always fun to watch how dad’s adjust to these tiny newborns. I love capturing the details of their little heads in dad’s hands or cuddled up on daddy’s chest. Many times dad’s are the ones that can calm the baby down. I also want capture daddy with all his kiddos!


Yes, you may have more than one child, but these pictures of you and your baby are priceless. I want your little one to look back and see themselves with just mom and dad.


Family pictures can be fun, candid and of course we try to get one posed looking at the camera. If you have older children, they determine how these family pictures go. Whether it be on the floor, standing, on a bed or around the crib. We will snap them wherever it works best!


No matter the age gap, siblings need a picture or two together! Sometimes we lay on the floor or big sibling holds the baby, other times we have to pull out all the tricks. Getting big brother or sister peeking in the crib looking for a ball, gummy or goldfish. You name it and I will work my magic!

Baby + All the details

Yes, I capture your baby in their crib, on a rug or piece of furniture. I want to make sure you get all the itty bitty details of your baby. I personally love their eyes open. We get to see them change over the first year, but sleeping is good too. I know so many mama’s want those sweet sleepy newborn pictures! I capture their little details from face and mouth to those precious little feet!

Nursery details

Lastly, we can’t forget all the details of your nursery! You dreamed of this space and planned out all the details. Some even include bits and pieces from your very one childhood. I love capturing all the details of the nursery during a break or at the end of our session.
