Newborn Session | Miss Elizabeth

It’s not a secret that I loooove newborn photography. The sweetness, the newness, the simplicity, the wonder, love and awe in the parents’ eyes…

It just makes me all gooey inside. 🙂 I am honored to capture these fleeting, wonderful first days with a new little one.

Here is the first newborn of 2014… Meet Miss Elizabeth! She was all that I love in newborn sessions and more. I truly enjoyed the snuggles, the newborn squeaks and snorts, the HAIR (!!), and getting to know her precious mama Kara. Elizabeth is a beautiful gift to this new little family!

If you are expecting and would like to talk with me about a newborn session, please contact me (saragriffinphoto (at) consolidated (dot) net) during your second trimester if at all possible. I would love to work with you and your new little one when he/she arrives! I do tend to book up at least 2 months in advance, so contacting me early is beneficial so that we can ‘pencil in’ your due date as a placeholder on my calendar.

Please enjoy this sneak peek of sweet Elizabeth!DSC_7875edit2FB DSC_7880edit1FB DSC_7885edit1FB DSC_7908edit1FB DSC_7946edit1FB

Family Session | The Cruz Family

Meet the Cruz family!

I am so glad we were able to meet for this session — talk about a fun, full of laughter family! Dad is certainly the quiet, strong type but he’s so loving towards his ladies and full of joy. Mom exudes a sense of peace and togetherness and would truly do anything for her family. The girls? Well, they are certainly ‘sugar and spice and everything nice’!!

Y’all, I had so much fun with you. Thanks for making me laugh (and cough — right Andrea?!), thanks for trusting me with your photos, and thanks for your friendship. Much love to you!blog blog1 blog2 blog3 blog4 blog5 blog6 blog7

Family & Generations Session | Poppy’s Family

Last Christmas, Gary and Amy gave all of their parents a gift certificate to be used on a family session sometime this year. This was our third and last session with Gary and Amy’s family and their parents – and I think we’ve ended on a fabulous note!

Meet Wilson, also known as “Poppy” to his grandkids. He has such a great laugh and you can tell the kids all enjoy being around him! Poppy has lived in Colorado, so we chose a setting with some beautiful rocks and a waterfall. Add to that a beautiful evening and lovely family, and we had ourselves a great session! blog1 blog2 blog3 blog4

Newborn Session | Miss Jenna

Though she be but little, she is fierce –William Shakespeare

Meet sweet Jenna, this week’s miracle baby!

Jenna was an incredible 5 1/2 weeks new for our session this week. Yes – 5 1/2 weeks! While most newborns I photograph are in the 5-10 day range, this precious babe was born early (she wasn’t due until November!), and had a ‘tour of duty’ in the NICU for her first 5 weeks of life. I am thrilled to say that Jenna is doing amazing now – gaining weight, eating, and sleeping like a champ! Her mom and dad are Over. The. Moon. for this tiny little lady, and are rejoicing in how God has blessed them all.

Enjoy this sweet sneak peek of Jenna (with some cameo appearances by Mom and Dad) in all of her 5 1/2 week old, 5 pound wonder…blog1 blog2 blog3 blog4 blog5 blog6 blog7

Family Session & Gender Reveal | The Hernandez Family

Meet the Hernandez Family, Party of Three — soon to be Four!

We had the most PERFECT weather here in Katy this past weekend, and we took full advantage of the cool air and pleasant breezes out at the MKT caboose, depot, and then over at Katy’s Heritage Park. I enjoyed spending time with this beautiful trio — the little one is not quite two years old yet, and very curious! He had good reason — there were several other people at the locations we were shooting, all taking advantage of great weather and getting their Homecoming groups together for photos! We also had something special planned for the end of their session — a gender reveal for baby #2!

Even with a curious and active nearly-two-year-old, and parents eager to find out if they were having a boy or a girl, we got some fun photos of them as a family of three. Enjoy these sweet smiles and a wonderful moment when they found out if they were being blessed with a new little Mister or a new little Miss… 🙂blog1 blog2 blog3 blog4 blog5 blog6 blog7Thank you, Hernandez family, for coming out to meet with me! I enjoyed meeting you and I am already looking forward to our next session! 🙂

Newborn | Mr. Matthew {Katy, TX newborn photographer}

blog1 Meet Matthew!

This dapper little dude was 10 days new for our session. It was such a joy for me to spend time with this sweet boy — he’s my newest nephew!

He made me work pretty hard to get the images that we did, but that’s okay because it just meant more time for me to snuggle with him. 🙂 There’s something about the way a baby smells and feels when they curl up right at your neck — it’s the best natural ‘high’ in the world. In a week when my youngest turned four years old, it made me quite nostalgic.

blog2 blog3 Love this little Mattyroo. ❤blog4 blog5

Family | The Jacksons {Katy, TX photographer}

Meet the Jackson family!

Mom, Dad, two daughters, one fiancĂ©, and one grandson all met with me on a threatening-to-storm evening recently to capture some time together. This is a family that loves each other through thick and thin – and who goes to great lengths to support one another. What a blessing to be a witness to their love and commitment for just a short window of time!blog1 blog2Thank you, Jacksons, for being such a fun group to work with! It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you had a great time as well!
