Fresh 48 Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

Coming full circle to this moment right here means everything- from pregnancy to birth, getting to know your Silas has been an honor. (Check out their maternity session here!!) The Moore family welcomed their first child and it was my absolute pleasure to get to be with them while he was only 48 hours fresh. The day your child is born...the way your heart turns in your chest meeting the tiny soul you have waited on...these moments *beg* to be shared, celebrated and protected. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family today.

Newborn Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands, TX}

Having a baby is not a subtle love. It's a brave, beautiful mess. It comes for you, ready or not, gripping your heart and soul in places you didn't even know existed.

Give me that love- Every. Single. Day. Toys on the floor, morning cartoons playing while big sister Hannah spins in the living room under blind-filtered sunlight, coffee, and a fresh baby Lucas. Unplugged, unhurried time with the Leonard family was bliss. They have a candid and open home that mirrors their hearts. Lucas, your name means “shining light”…my goodness does it shine. Every family is unique in their mess, but each story begging to be told with the same passion it is lived. This is the story of baby Lucas.

Maternity Session

Having children is an adventure...a journey...a divine calling.

The Stone family has the joy of continuing their adventure and I have the pleasure of documenting this amazing journey. Every family has a story, and every voyage is unique. Choosing to share the good does not mean we ignore the heartache. Instead, we embrace it as part of the path we had to take to get to this moment. Embrace your calling and all the places it takes you.
Thank you, Stone Family, for sharing your hearts with me.

Milestone Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

"To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time." - Clara Ortega

I pray that Ellie and Levi will always be as close as they are now. Being a brother or sister is a role that must constantly be worked at, a relationship that needs attention and grace to grow.

One Year Session {Tucker}

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands, TX}

One whole year! Can you believe it? Tucker, you are amazing and it's been my honor to get to be a part of your family. It's bittersweet to close this chapter- infancy and Alabama. You are growing up and doing so many amazing things. I miss you and your family already. Thank you for allowing me to watch you grow!

Check out this super sweet one-year session and learn some tips on how to prepare for your milestone session! 

  1. Bring two outfits: A cute first birthday outfit, and the cake smash “attire”. 
  2. Let your baby have cake at least 2 times in the weeks leading up to the cake smash session. This way they will be familiar with cake enough to move past the exploration phase and they can get excited about it like the rest of us! But believe it or not, many babies think the texture of the icing feels weird.  Some babies don’t like it at all and get upset when it won’t easily wipe off, and some babies are very interested in it and examine it very seriously.
  3. Bring a special prop. Do you have a family heirloom? Let's incorporate it!
  4. Smash cake sessions can be done in your own home, or even outside (my favorite!) Let's talk about the location that works best for you. 
  5. If your baby has a fever or is not feeling well on the day of the session, then it needs to be rescheduled. We will not get good results and good smiles if your baby isn’t feeling well. Just put the cake into the freezer for safe keeping. Take it out of the freezer with enough time to let it thaw prior to the next session.
  6. Have some puffs, Cheerios or your baby’s favorite dry finger food on hand to stuff into the cake in case they need help being a littlemore interested in it.
  7. Also have a sippy cup within arms reach in case your baby gets thirsty. Your baby will need a little break.
  8. Please avoid ordering chocolate cake or cake with red icing and please avoid fondant decorations (this can pose as a choking hazard).

Three month milestones are my jam and I'm loving that I get to spend this kind of time with the Xu family. What was your favorite thing about when your baby was three months old? Do you remember or were you just coming out of that new parent haze like me?

Newborn Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

They invited me into their space. It was the first time they had walked over the threshold since Louis was born 10 days prior. Undone and unposed newborns are the heartbeat of a new family. Intimate and personal, these first-time parents not only opened up their home but also their hearts. Louis, your name means "famous warrior". I know you will grow to do amazing things.

Are you expecting a bundle of joy? This newborn session is a lifestyle-type session, which means it's unposed and natural in their space. I love the way these types of sessions capture intimacy and love in a very pure and natural way. Let's talk about how you can share your home and heart with the people you love!

Newborn Session

“Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops… at all.” – Emily Dickinson

Scott, Caroline, and Holden- like one big hug, this precious family exudes love, joy and gratitude. Holden is their 15% chance…their hope…he is the one meant for them. My heart knows the in’s and out’s of their struggle all too well, but the Parrott family continued to sing their song, never giving up on their dream of becoming parents. Being invited into their loving home and having the chance to be in the presence of truly raw and humbled hearts, reminded me of the hope I carried in my own heart for each one of my children.

“…I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you…” – Isaiah 46:4

Children are truly a gift from God. I’m honored to have been a part of the Parrott Family story and my prayer is that, just like the constellations lovingly painting on Holden’s nursery wall, you will continue to watch over him and guide him as he grows.

Family Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

Two unique souls united at birth. Ava and Emma Kate came to me right before the end of the sunflower season. These amazing flowers symbolize many things, but what I love the most about them is how they parallel the incredible relationship shared between sisters: adoration, loyalty and happiness. Watching them together among the flowers, I know they will always be close. It’s a blessing to have one another and I will only relish in the fact that I got the opportunity to work with such a fun and authentic family.

Girls, I pray that you will always remember what you have in one another simply because you are sisters.
