Houston’s Newborn Photos

Hi friends! Both kids are napping and I have a bit of time to share some of my favorite photos from our recent newborn shoot. When I say recent I mean it was almost five weeks ago, which feels like a whole other lifetime. Houston was only three weeks old and I feel like he has already changed so much.

Jana came over to our house the same Sunday that my parents had left to go back to Texas, so it was a bit of a crazy day. Especially since they had been staying in Houston’s room, I had to scramble to turn it back into a nursery. Jana is the same photographer that took our family photos back in November, that also doubled as our pregnancy announcement. I love her style and am so happy with the way they turned out! There were over 100 images, so it was tough to narrow them down, but here are my top 44 :).


We started in Houston’s room with just he and I while Travis entertained Leighton downstairs. I was pleasantly surprised how well he stayed asleep, with only one little nursing break.

After a while, Leighton and Trav came in to join us. Leighton wasn’t quite sure about everything at first, but once she warmed up she just wanted to bring us books to read.

Then we moved into our room to finish off the session. By this point Leighton and Houston were both getting a bit hangry and less cooperative, luckily you can’t really tell in the photos.

This is one of my favorites- Jana was trying to get a cute picture of Travis and Houston (which she did), but look what was happening on the other end…

“Yee haw!” as Leighton says.

Saving our family photo for the very end probably wasn’t the best since they are mostly a variation of this one, but that pretty much sums up life with 2 under 2. Hope you enjoyed them!

  1. You got so many great shots out of the shoot, and you never would have known that anybody was fussing at the end! That’s too funny that Leighton was holding on tight to Travis’s legs while he was trying to get a picture of just him and Houston!

  2. These are so great! I think they all turned out so well, your photographer is amazing. You can’t tell anyone is cranky at all! Also I love your top, it’s very pretty. It looks like you all co-ordinate – I’m assuming that was on purpose and I’m very impressed!

    • Thanks! I actually bought the top when I was pregnant (I don’t think it’s maternity 🤷🏻‍♀️) but it still works. I’m glad the outfits worked because I literally was throwing them together that morning. Nothing like the last minute!
