NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY | IN HOME SESSION | TEALA WARD PHOTOGRAPHY

Is there anything better than newborn photos? I don’t think so. These in home newborn photos were a blast to take. I like newborn photo shoots because there is no shortage of warmth and love surrounding this new little one. Megan picked up my business card several years ago at the fair. When it was time for newborn photos she contacted me and told me she had been following for a long time! I was so grateful for Megan and her patience and timing on this photo shoot. She contacted me many months in advance to make sure we could get photos of brand new little one that was on the way. Of course I ensured her we would make it work and I am thrilled we did.

Everything is new when it comes to having a newborn in the house. From the way they smell to their ever changing features, newborn photo shoots are amazing because they have elements of magic and miracles in each frame. Mom and dad were doing great with this transition and you could see that each moment was a learning experience and a welcomed one. Through my communication with Megan, I got to know a little bit about her story and from traveling to cosmic meetings, it seemed like her relationship also had those same wonderful elements of magic and miracles. It is so fun for me to learn about people’s stories and get to know them as I take photos. Knowing their story helps me paint a picture of who they and what life is like in those moments I share with them. This little guy has only begun his story but I am beyond thrilled to know that they will have these photos to document where it started when he entered this world. He was cared for and planned for. Overall, it was overwhelming just how loved he was from the very first moments.

FAMILY RANCH WILDFLOWER SESSION | TEALA WARD PHOTOGRAPHY

I have people contact me for a variety of reason when they want to schedule a photo session but they all have one thing in common, life transitions. This cute family contacted me for their family photos on their family ranch and I was so excited to be able to take photos in a place that means so much to them. I was also beyond thrilled that because of the spring rain we received, we had an unusual and wonderful amount of wildflowers that we took advantage of during this photo session. Seasons are important to take note of when booking a photo session and having a vision for how you want these photos to turn out. Last spring was perfect for this one.

This location was new for me as it was owned by my clients family but I had so much fun exploring it with them. Being able to watch them move from location to location spoke volumes to who they are and their lifestyle on the ranch. The responsibility of owning and maintaining a ranch molds a person and brings out pride in what they have created. I saw this pride beam from Annie and her husband not just because of the ranch they had cultivated and grown however. Pride also beamed from both of them because of the two children they had also cultivated and grown. With their oldest off to college this year, I had the opportunity to take some one on one shots of both her and her brother. This is a big transition for a family of four and I think it will be an exciting one filled with wonderful things in the future. Transitions can be hard and they can introduce a vast variety of new experiences but being able to capture how things are now, before the shift is also wonderful and important.

FAMILY SESSION | PALO DURO CANYON | TEALA WARD PHOTOGRAPHY

Fall is always a hot time in my world and not because of the temperature. It is always hot because it seems everyone wants at least one family photo session during this season and I don’t blame them because it is a beautiful time of year. The light during the fall season is warm and vibrant. It lights even the darkest shadows or even those green leaves that haven’t quite turned color yet. Brittney and her sweet family scheduled this fall session on a great night to capture this light.

Family sessions always provide ample entertainment and ease as I watch little ones interact with each other and their parents. Big sister was so great getting her little brother to laugh and look at the camera when we needed him to. She fills her role as big sister so well! I also loved being able to photograph just how she fit into dads lap and how her little brother was so comfortable hanging out on mom’s hip. These little things are what bring me joy as a photographer. I can pick up on the habits and capture them as still memories and even get proof that fine baby hair blows perfectly with a crisp fall breeze.

There was no shortage of laughter and play in this photo session. I enjoy session like that. Parenthood is magical, it just is. This cute mama displayed just how wonderful motherhood can be and what a gift it is. Her small children looked to her throughout our whole session for guidance, for inspiration and for help. That is what motherhood is all about. Providing what children need is a hard job but these parents do it so well. I can't express how happy I was to capture this age for the little ones and this stage of life for all four of them.
