The Harris' Birth Session at the Katy Birth Center | Houston Birth Photographer

My latest birth session with the Katy Birth Center was so quick that if you blinked you would have missed it! I arrived just in time to photograph the delivery of this momma's precious baby boy and all the sweet moments that happened after.

The Katy Birth Center is a magical place to deliver, filled with comforting smells like herbs and oils and home to mothering midwives whose goal is utmost care without uncessesary intervention. Peace radiates as soon as you enter the house. I love every second I'm there and every second capturing these amazing births.

In-Home Newborn Lifestyle Session | Houston Candid Family Photographer

We brought him home, our first baby boy, all snuggled up and held tight in my arms. He smelled like something new and alive and mine. Never wanting to take my eyes off him, he stayed close to my chest, his small body somehow fitting perfectly with mine. We were meant for one another. We were meant to be mother and son. We were meant for this time.

Here's the In-Home Newborn Lifestyle Session of sweet Alexa and Caleb, whose in-home maternity session and park sunset maternity session I had the joy of photographing earlier this summer.

I love having the honor of staying with a family and taking their pictures as their family grows. #happyphotographer

That last photo there is the classic startled-baby-throw-my-hands-in-the-air pose. His parents died laughing every time!

I'd love to hear from you if you're interested in an In-Home Newborn Lifestyle Session. They are the most precious shoots.

Beautiful Birth Session | Houston Candid Family Photographer

I absolutely love being a family photographer in Houston TX. And now I have the pleasure of offering another beautiful service to my clients: birth photography!

We delivered our sweet Noah inside the comfort of the birthing pool at the Katy Birth Center. It was absolutely amazing, even if it did hurt like the dickens.

After experiencing the birth of our second son with the midwives at the Katy Birthing Center in Katy, TX, I knew, I just knew, I wanted to be a part of that magic again some day.

Little did I know the next time I would step foot inside the birthing center it would be through the lens of my camera!

I've birthed two boys naturally. I know the pain. I know the journey. I know the blessing and joy. Embarking on this new service as JSP is a true honor.

And so it was, on a gorgeous Saturday morning, I received the call from my first birth photography clients that they were officially in labor.

Erica and Trey were so peaceful together, rocking back and forth in the birthing pool, each contraction bringing their baby girl closer and closer. The hum of Erica's birthing song filled the room, everyone expectant, everyone ready, everyone at peace.

Here's the story of their labor in pictures. Enjoy!

(Note: the images below are of a woman in labor and will be revealing. Please be kind and respectful if you choose to comment. Thank you.)

Nightfall came and after 30+ hours of hard labor (she was amazing!) it was decided to transfer Erica and Trey to the midwives' partnering hospital so they could get some much needed rest before the final stage of Erica's labor. Sweet baby Alba, welcome earthside!
