Engagement Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands, Spring}

Austin and Courtney have this magnetic energy about them. You can't help but smile it's so contagious. Their excitement for this next step in their lives buzzes steadily on the air- a couple in love is a reminder that magic still remains and hearts are still hoping. It's my favorite. We met atop a Oak Mountain State Park, and as we stood on the edge to take it all in, they quietly held hands and looked at one another. That moment took my breath away. It's in the small things, the quiet looks, the presence of nature and greatness that you can appreciate the link shared between two humans. Courtney shared that her most proud moment was how hard Austin is working for their future and the advances he's made in his career- all for them. “You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” -Sam Keen Congrats to this beautiful couple! I can't wait to celebrate your love story on your special day.

On a rainy, cold day in Birmingham, AL, the sweetest of best friends said "I do". When you meet a couple and your heart is just overwhelmed by their love for one another...it's truly an honor and a joy to capture their story. 

Since I cannot write it any better, I am go ing to leave you with their story, as told by Carson. 

Carson and Emelie Sara met in the back of a bizarre English course at the University of Alabama in the spring of 2012. Modern American fiction was the title, the syllabus was non-existent and the day to day structure was something similar to Whose Line is it Anyway? (all the rules are made up and the points don’t matter…)
Carson remembers Emelie asking him about the book on his desk (Late Thoughts on an Old War by Philip Beidler) and Emelie Sara very technically made the first move by getting in touch with him outside of class to inquire as to whether to not he had a posted grade for the course at the end of the term. 
Bother ended up in the same cohort the following semester along with a handful of other great folks (most of whom joined them on March 11th to celebrate their wedding). 
In January of 2013, Carson (finally) asked Emelie Sara out for coffee. 
Shortly after, they went on their first real date and what followed between then and November 5th, 2016 can be summarized effectively with an assortment of memories: Emelie brought Carson lunch at the car parts store where he worked. Carson put a note on her windshield at the middle school she was interning. Emelie introduced Carson to her extended family in Virginia and Tennessee on some road trips and Carson brought Emelie lunch to the farm. 
Emelie came to watch Carson coach football at Northridge and Carson brought Emelie lunch at Echols. 
They drove to Jackson, MS to see the Alabama Shakes (with Seth and John in tow), grilled steaks for football games days, visited coon dog cemetery, saw Shovels and Rope in concert too many times to count, and toured Faulkner’s house. They share a favorite professor, a couple favorite books, and a goofy German shorthaired pointer names Lord Byron. 
On November 5th, Carson took Byron for a walk at the Wilson’s farm. He invited Emelie Sara to join and stuffed a ring box down the top of his boot. The walked up on the ridge, he got on one knee, and she almost slapped him (she’s done that before, but that’s another story). She didn’t slap him and the rest is history.

Oh my heart! Is there anything sweeter than a couple in love waiting on their first born? Besides the new baby of course...I really can't explain what it is like to work with a couple that is so clearly smitten with one another. Our time together was unplugged, simple and all about their family. Most of my work is outside, but renting a studio space is easy to do! We can create the look and feel that you want while staying inside and keeping it simple. Let's talk about your urban, unplugged session!

In a tiny, but darling chapel overlooking the Texas hill country, my brother and his new bride shared their vows with one another. It was an intimate gathering, where the officiant performed a warming of the rings ceremony and everyone had the best seat in the house. There were so many personal details that went into their day, including a portion of their vows dedicated to raising their children. When they had said their "I do's", together as a family, they rung the church bells, sending their exclamation out over the hills. I do, I do, we do.

On one of the coldest days, with the Cypress Inn in the background, on the bank of the Black Warrior River, a family was born. 

Lacie and Chris had their very first date at the Cypress Inn, so it seems only fitting that along that same river, he asked her to be his forever. 
Bella squealed with excitement "I knew it!!" as she ran over to hug her mama. Chris knelt again and made a promise to Bella, sliding a ring on her finger too. 

Chris was so nervous and excited...the night before he had asked Lacie's parents for permission to marry their daughter. 
Today, they are three together, and I couldn't be happier for them.

Fresh 48 Session

Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands, TX}

"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...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."

Newborn photography and Fresh 48's are at the heartbeat of what I do. If you are interested in documenting this sacred time, let's talk about how to prepare and what you can do to 

  • Bring heirloom or family items
    Not too many, as a fresh 48 is best when simple, but something that is special to you or your family works perfect- blankets, hats, an outfit for baby, books or even jewelry. 
  • Plan for and around family
    I never like to take your little one away from family members, so try to have them come before or after I schedule our session. If you want siblings to attend the session, let me know and we can plan for these sweet moments easily! 
  • Dress simply
    Its better when you are comfortable. Try looking for a custom delivery gown or robe. Have your significant other dress in neutrals or casual clothing. 
  • Just be yourself! 
    There's no need to go all out with makeup and hair. You just had a baby! Keep it simple and you will feel much better during our time together. 

Considering documenting your baby's first 48 hours? Let's talk!

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
— Harriet Tubman

The Wielicki world is about to change! I walked away from this simple, yet stunning session, with an overwhelming sense adventure, excitement and passion. All fueled by Michelle's steady peace and love. There is something so incredible about this waiting period, and Michelle embodies grace (and the perfect baby bump) while she pauses during these last few moments of her pregnancy. If you are considering a maternity session, let's talk about the unique ways we can document it!

From an intimate and personal session in your own space, to a location that means something to you. I love the sweet anticipation of waiting for the person who is to be...
