Bluebonnet Portraits San Antonio | Chelsea Lietz Photography

I had another wonderful year taking bluebonnet photos of the cutest kids in the San Antonio area!  Our pasture was full of blooms this spring and the kids had so much fun in the golden light. I just adore how evident their personalities are in these.  And I also adore spring in Texas when the bluebonnets bloom. <3   Thanks for coming to play with me!

San Antonio Child Photographer | Chelsea Lietz Photography | Girlhood

Being a newborn and child photographer is the job of my dreams. True story.  But staying inspired is crucial to avoiding burnout.  This spring I decided to style a shoot *just for me,* and I chose something I am inspired by in my own life… girlhood!

Since I am blessed with three young daughters, my life is full of pink, sparkles, frilly dresses, twirling, giggles, accessories, and playing dress up.  All things girly and innocent and sweet and fancy!

I styled my models (just regular four and five year old gals willing to come play in front of the camera) in gorgeous dresses from Dollcake Oh So Girly and Tutu Du Monde.  The floral halos are from Honeydrop Designs (formerly So Cuddly Creations) and Created by Carli.

These girls were so much fun!  I wish I’d taken some video of the shoot so that you could hear their sweet giggles!  When one started, it spread like wildflower… even to me.  Girls are such an adventure.

These sessions were shot with my Canon 5d Mark iii and Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II. I process my images in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop.

These dresses and accessories are available in my studio and are available for use in my Princess Sessions for young girls in the San Antonio area. I also have a white pony available for these sessions!  Find booking details here.  (I also love to dress older siblings in these dresses during newborn portrait sessions!)

Thank you ladies for being exceptional models. Your contagious giggles have refreshed my soul.  <3

San Antonio Baby Photographer | Chelsea Lietz Photography Gives Back | Judah

This year I’ve been working on a special project for “deserving families.”  I asked for nominations, chose some families, and even got some extremely generous donations to sponsor additional “deserving” families.  These families all receive a complimentary newborn session and the digital images.  I just photographed the second of the families I will be working with this year, and was once again blown away by their kind hearts, faith, and perseverance.  There are so many GOOD, beautiful people in this world.

Laura and her husband, Brandon, are madly in love and always knew they wanted children. They both came from families with 4 children and were certain that their own family would include 4 offpsring. 8 years ago, they welcomed their first child, a son, without complications. A year or so later, they lost a daughter at 18 weeks and were heartbroken. Soon came another joyful pregnancy- twins!  But in the first trimester, one of the twins miscarried.  And yet, another beautiful daughter was born to them.

They soon had a surprise pregnancy, but Laura spotted throughout and hemorrhaged at 21 weeks.  The baby was alive, but to save Laura they needed to deliver via emergency c section.  Another daughter was born but God called her home. She was buried beside her sister. They still wanted more children and got pregnant again when they were ready… and again… twins!  Yet again one twin did not thrive, but a fourth daughter was born to them.  Still yearning for four children in their arms, Laura miscarried again in her next pregnancy.  But this year, a son was born and Judah makes four!

Laura was nominated for a session by a longtime friend.  Her friend says “Laura has faith and courage and has turned the moments of sorrow in her life into ministry and compassion for others.” Laura shares her story, her heart, her pain and her healing. She organizes events to help others facing similar situations through Project Hope.  Brandon and Laura and their full quiver are touching the lives around them every day.  They cherish their four children and Laura says that they have five angels waiting for them in heaven. Brandon is a pastor and they have planted a new church. (I love this as I am active in a new church seed, myself called Hope Arise)  Laura writes a beautiful blog called Bits of Splendor... I got lost in her words and their brutiful life.

Working with Judah was a true pleasure for me.  He is so sweet and has the most perfect lips and kissable baby toes!  His Mama challenged me with a request for black, gray, and white colors in his session… and I do enjoy a challenge.

Welcome to your amazing family, Judah.

Laura says “His name means to praise and that we most definitely have done since he entered our life! He’s the perfect ending to this family story of ours.”

San Antonio Newborn Portraits | Chelsea Lietz Photography | Personalized Baby Hats

When clients come to me for newborn portraits, I love when they want a personal touch!  Sometimes this means we include cultural or heirloom items into their photo session.  Sometimes we style a session to coordinate with their baby’s nursery or their home.

One great way to add a personal touch to your newborn photos is to bring along a custom hat personalized with your child’s name.  You can also use a nickname or even a favorite sports team.  I highly recommend Knots for custom hats that fit newborns well.  You can find her on facebook or etsy, just click on the links I’ve provided.  You can even get larger sizes for milestone sessions!

I am happy to include your personal touches in your session.  If you have something in mind, please email me well in advance and I can recommend some of my favorite vendors for newborn items.  Some materials photograph better than others, some sellers do not size for a true newborn, and some sellers just have an overall better quality that I have come to trust.  I am happy to share suggestions with you!  And if you are crafty, feel free to make your own… that adds an extra personal touch because you will always remember creating it as baby kicked and squirmed in your tummy.  :)  Thank you for choosing Chelsea Lietz Photography for your San Antonio newborn portraits.
