Tristan Cull {Friendswood, Tx Fresh 48}

Meet the newest employee of Maddie Dean Photography. He joined our group on Thursday, May 7 at 4:09 PM. He tipped the scales at a whopping 9 lbs 2 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. His family absolutely adores him – can’t imagine why! Just look at that sweet face!!

(interested in your own Fresh 48 session? Contact me! I’d love to capture this special time for your family!!)

Miracle Girl {Perryton, Tx Newborn Photographer}

Meet Kelbie. She’s a miracle baby. She was loved and wanted by her parents long before she was even a thought, and has been prayed about for many years. I still cannot believe that I had the honor of photographing this sweet baby when she was just a few days old, on Christmas Eve. It was no coincidence that she was born during the season when we celebrate the most miraculous birth of all.  I know I’m late blogging, but I just wanted to share this beautiful angel. Welcome to the world, Kelbie Kay. We are so thankful that you are here.

Baby Boy {League City Newborn Photographer}

Isn’t this little guy ADORABLE?? Don’t let that sweetness fool you, he did *NOT* want to go to sleep. A lot of patience, rocking, and paci-time later, he conked out and was an absolute dream to photograph!!

Helloo?? Anyone There?

Soo, I am incredibly behind on my blog. Wow, that may just be the understatement of the year!

I have to be honest, I couldn’t even log-in without requesting my new password. Pretty sad huh?

I’ve been busy. Busy with pictures. Busy with School. Busy with family. Busy with work (Nurse-y work).

But, I’m slowly digging myself out – and I have about a bazillion posts lined up. Okay, that’s probably exaggerating, a bit. But I am trying to catch up since I have some beautiful faces that haven’t seen blog love!

So, I promise to be better.

Starting. Right. Now.


Ok, I feel like I should explain that first picture. It’s often said that you can tell a lot about parents by looking at their kids. Well, I told my monkeys to kiss, because sweet sibling-pictures-in-bluebonnets are a requirement in this part of Texas…. What you see is what I got. Without saying a word, this image must say that these kiddos have two parents that adore each other :)

Perfect Princess {Dickinson Newborn Photographer}

This sweet little girl was an absolute DOLL for her session. Once she settled into a deep sleep, she was out. Big brother was busy watching Lion King, and she didn’t even care!! She *almost* makes me want another sweet little girl… her lips just melted me. I’ll be honest here, there are sometimes that photographing a newborn makes my ovaries ache. I love the smell of a newborn, their sweaky little squaks and ohhh, their soft skin just makes me want to kiss them all over. There is something so sweet about them – truly one of life’s miracles! And the BEST part, I get to capture that goey sweetness on film for their family to remember for years to come. They don’t stay small and sleepy long – so each of these images will hold this sweet memory for a lifetime. What an honor!! So, thank you so much Y family for allowing me into your home during this new season – it was an honor!!


Look at this precious little girl…. See how she’s curled up and in a deep sleep? That’s the beauty of photographing a newborn early in their life. This is how she grew in her mom for 9 months, so this pose is perfectly comfortable for her. I recommend scheduling a session under 10 days of age to capture sweet looks like this…

Birthday Girl {League City, Tx Photographer}

Miss Priss wasn’t too crazy about having to take any pictures outside – she simply wanted to be left alone to explore. But as soon as we move indoors and put a cake down, her entire attidude did a giant flip! She LOVED the cake and scooped it into her little mouth like it was the last sweet she’d ever get! She was absolutely precious. I have been photographing her since she was a newborn – it is such an honor to grow with my clients! This little sweetie will have a new brother this summer and I’m looking forward to photographing them together!

I ♥ Faces – Yellow

I was so excited to see this weeks theme for I Heart Faces pop up on Facebook tonight! I knew the perfect picture. Last month I was running typical Mommy errands and found a beautiful field of yellow wild flowers. That weekend, after nap time, I snatched up my daughter and headed to the field. She was less-than-thrilled,  but I snapped anyways. Turns out, it was a good thing that I did as just 3 days later the city mowed the fields down. I literally had tears in my eyes. I was angry that they could do that. You see, this dress that my daughter has on will never fit again. It’s not just any yellow dress. It belonged to her GiGi (my Mom) and it was made my my Mom’s Aunt Sarah, my namesake. So, the dress is roughly 57 years old. (My mother keeps EVERYTHING!) The doll that is hidden is also special. It is made from a pillow case that my Dad’s grandmother hand tatted – so it’s easily 80 – 90 years old. I was just sick that this is the only shot I got. At the same time, I love it. It is truly priceless to me. I really need to get on the ball and have it printed and hung, just need to figure out where! So, here’s my entry for week #21!

In. Love. {Epiphanie Ginger}

Last week the man with the Brown Shorts bought me a gift. A gift that so many women-photographers have longed for. A gift that is stylish AND functional – (how often are those two words used together when describing a CAMERA BAG?? Not very often!) A gift that made me squeal like a school girl after her crush gives her a glance! I was soo excited to tear into the box! How awesome that it came inside it’s own cute little blue bag?!?! I was walking about the door to pick the kiddos up from school and to run some errands. It was killing me to hurry home and love on my new bag! I was excited for the weather to get nice so I could bring it out for it’s on photo session!!! If you love it too and want to pick up your own, be sure and check out Epiphanie Bags.




And hurry over, they are having a fabulous contest on their blog!!! .
