Staten Island Newborn Session | Austin

Staten Island Newborn Session

I couldn’t believe it when I first got told that Gabriella was pregnant. It was a bit of a shock because she had recently got married. But I think it was also because I saw her as my little sister. After working with her for two years I felt like I was always looking out for her and we created a special bond so yea it was definitely a bit emotional when I heard the news. She was going to be a mother and I knew she would be so good at it. I met her baby boy in early June. It was no surprise he would give me a run for my money. It seems that any family or friend who books me has the more challenging babies. After a longer than normal session we succeeded in getting prop, beanbag, macro and family shots. But best of all….we also got a shot with Gabriella’s dog, Presley. Anyone who knows Presley, knows that this dog is scared of her own shadow. Luckily for me she cooperated and I snapped only a few pictures below she flew the coop. This is a great representation of my Elite Collection or what I also like to call “The Whole Shebang.”
