1 Year Photography {Baby Milestones, The Woodlands}

Milestone Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands, TX}

One year! I can't believe it! This cutie is celebrating a year of giggles and love. Oh that mama heart- it's so exciting and so bittersweet. I wanted to capture all the little moments of being a toddler. Hold on tight, friend, it goes so quickly.
My sessions are typically "undone". I like to feel out your family, see what works best or how your children respond and go from there. Often, the outtakes becomes your very favorites, and the simple moments document something so sacred about this time in your life. Reimagining the details of that first year of life, we don't have to always be smiling or even looking at the camera. It's about the season you are in and I want to embrace it with you. 
Do you have a special spot your family likes to go? An activity that has become a part of your routine? Or do you just want to remember the little years?

Every tiny detail…every hair, perfect little nail, precious yawn, or touch of skin…it’s these moments right here than take up some of the biggest places in my mama heart. Every time I am with another family after a birth, I relive the births of my own children. Each one imprinted on my heart forever. 
Tiffany, your family is darling and clearly so in love. Thank you for inviting me and trusting me with your precious Morgan. For sharing intimate moments, and the love of your family.

Maternity Session

Say hello to the Chancey family! We will be working together through their first year as parents and I couldn't be more honored! 
There is something so brave and noble and beautiful about a heart that desires children...the fact that I get to be a part of these intimate and precious moments is not lost on me. It can be awkward to meet someone and share this part of your life with them, but my goal is always to make sure you feel comfortable and that we tell the story of your season. 
Lake Nicol provided the perfect backdrop for the sweet snuggles and anticipation of baby. Thank you for trusting me with your memories- I'm eagerly awaiting all things new baby with you!

Family Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

I have died everyday, waiting for you. Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more... Time stands still. Beauty in all she is. I will be brave, I will not let anything, take away, what's standing in front of me. Every breath, every hour has come to this...

The Corbin's have just welcomed their most precious gift- Kaelyn Rose. Coming into their home, and having worked with them to document their pregnancy, I know that every moment has led to this one here today. It's a beautiful thing, having a child. I pray the Corbin family is able to pause and take in all these fleeting first moments: tiny fingers reaching out for mama, perfect rosy cheeks so soft it almost breaks your heart, white curtains and oversized pink bows, Pop the bear, counting toes and KRo coos, special dresses and all things girly. I'm blessed that I get to grow with your sweet family. Thank you for allowing me to come into your home and your life to document this first year.

Watch Me Grow Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

This precious peanut came by to see me with her grandmother's dress. Just dying over the sweetness! The fact that her mama thought to bring in such a special personal item just had my heart bursting! It's always a good idea to try to include anything that has special meaning to you or your family. This dress may not get a lot of wear anymore (I don't think I would ever take it out of a shadow box!!) but here, it shares the legacy of their family and it couldn't be any more important to document.

Watch Me Grow Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

Documenting all the little details of this time...I know your mama heart, it's just like mine. It aches while we are in the thick of it...we try so hard to hold on to every baby roll, tiny toes, new coos, and rosy cheeks. This time is so sweet, it's time to document it! 

Some photo-ops seem obvious, but other times new parents wonder when is the right time to document their children. Here are some general tips to help you decide when to schedule your next session! 

  • Newborns- First 4-10 days of life
  • 3-4 Months Old- When baby has gotten the hang of tummy time
  • 6-7 Months Old- When baby is sitting up with minimal or no assistance
  • 7-9 Months old- Crawling and exploring! 
  • 12 Months- Pulling up, standing or even walking!

Engagement Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

"Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Ashley and Austin took me on an adventure, to their favorite spot. They walk here often, and they wanted to share a place they spend time at. Living and documenting with intention is so vital to telling a story with meaning. I was honored to have been able to explore their walking trails with them, knowing that the path they are walking together is one of the most important walks they will take in life. 
I cannot wait to watch your walk down the isle together, toward one another, and with eyes focused on your future together.

Family Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

The holidays are a time for family and togetherness. Laura contacted me hoping to capture the occasion and my heart just soared! An extended family session- what a legacy and what an amazing testimony to the love of their entire family. That many people can be chaos, but not on this day. On this day there was so much love in that field, I couldn't stop snapping pictures of kisses, snuggles, and laughter. Generations together celebrating one another. (And those grand babies- they stole the show!!)
“What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” - George Eliot

Do you have family coming into town? Don't wait until they get here to schedule your session- the calendar fills up quickly and I hate to turn any one away. Bring me your family, I will do the rest!

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called the trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that He might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

A more beautiful union could not have taken place on September 8, 2017- the day Chris and Lacie pledged themselves to one another. Honor, love and family were echoed as they committed their lives in front of family and friends. Fall whispered a blessing and the sun seemed to shined down with the sole purpose of warming the hearts of all who attended. 

On the banks of the river where it all began the Cole family officially started their journey. 

I have had the distinct honor of capturing the love story as it has unfolded. Through knowing them and photographing their journey, it's been so incredible to watch them grow together.  Lacie is one of the most authentic and kind people you can know, while Chris is her head-over-heels goof. They seem to be made for one another in a way that makes my heart happy to know they have found one another. 

While all the guests were visiting at the reception, we walked around the back of the building to the fire pit they spent their first night at. When it comes full circle, when the whole day has meaning, it's truly the most touching. Beauty from ashes. 

Thank you for trusting me with your love story, friends. Praying for many more years and all the love in all the land.
