Newborn Photos in the NICU | Austin, TX

One of the greatest gifts I can give as a photographer is creating good memories out of a not-so-good situation.  And I have the best opportunity to do this when I get to have a photo session in the NICU as part of The Tiny Footprints Project.

The newborns I photograph come into this world under situations no one would ever want, but they turn into little fighters from the beginning.  Being a preemie is not for the faint of heart, but all of these newborns have an inner fighter's strength.  Their parents provide the best support system through unconditional love and encouragement.  When I am able to photograph these preemies who have grown big enough to called newborns, it truly humbles me.  Yet another reason why being a photographer is a joy!

I photographed Baby Jordan in the NICU at Seton Hospital in downtown Austin.  He truly is a little fighter and a healthy baby boy!

In Love with this Session!

I loved this family photography session so much!

From the beginning, they were crazy easy to photograph.  This family was awesome about having fun. We just chilled near the water and soaked up some warm Central Texas weather.  I was a little worried it was going to be cold, since it was really cold the day before.  However, the sun came out, the air warmed up, and it was a beautiful, cloudless day.

It's fun sessions like these that make me thankful for being a photographer.  Just capturing the connections between families and siblings make every moment special.  And of course, I captured Mom and Dad by themselves because it's always nice to remember where everything started!

Enjoy these Family Photos!
