I recently had the honor of photographing newborn twin boys that belong to a family in my church. These boys have a special story…

Ron and Jessica Steele have experienced grief and loss no parent should have to face.

In 2012 their beautiful nine-year-old daughter Alexis gained her angel wings after a long and hard fought battle with Leukemia.

Alexis was their miracle baby who was loved and adored by many. Through their grief, they championed a cause in honor of their daughter (along with Alexis’ grandparents Marilyn & Larry Rocamontes) called Alexis Angel Ministries. AAM provides emotional, physical, and specific financial support for patients and their families dealing with childhood cancer.


Though nothing could ever fill the void left by the loss of their daughter, Ron & Jessica longed to have another child. They explored every option available, but health issues, financial challenges, and arduous adoption processes left them with little hope.

This summer, a completely random chance encounter brought a wonderful adoption opportunity into their lives that has given them a renewed sense of purpose and joy.

The Steeles have welcomed twin baby boys into their family.  We believe their big sister Alexis sent them from heaven, and so we honored her beautiful memory in our newborn session.  Alexis is symbolized as a heart for the love she inspires still, as an angel for Alexis Angel Ministries, and with her beloved stuffed bunny rabbit.

Introducing Ethan and Hunter…

Did someone say triplet newborn photos in San Antonio?!

How is this even my job?!  I adore photographing babies… but I get a special thrill when I have the privilege of photographing multiples.  These adorable girl-girl-boy triplets came to see me and filled the studio with sweetness.

Their Mama asked for neutrals, sage green, florals, San Antonio Spurs, Texas Longhorns, family photos, and a variety of images with the babies both together and apart. I was happy to oblige and I love her taste almost as much as I loved working with her babies.

I always use an assistant when I work with multiples, so special thanks to De, who always knows exactly what I am thinking.

Obviously, I’m thinking that these triplets are beautiful and such a blessing!

As a San Antonio area newborn photographer, I am comfortable in my studio where I have photographed almost 900 newborns. However, I love a challenge and traveling for a newborn session is just that!

Allow me to introduce this baby girl with the face of an angel… Valentina.  Her mom is a friend and a fellow photographer in Dallas at Angie Ochoa Photography.  I was so very honored to photograph Valentina.  She was anxiously awaited, and then needed very special care and prayers during a month in the NICU, including being on ECMO.  She proved herself a fierce fighter and her parents approached each day with complete faith and a strong community of support.

Valentina was over six weeks old by the time I got to meet her, but that didn’t stop us!  Capturing these images of her was very fun, especially because she is always smiling and making funny faces.  We did endless “newborn” poses, posed shots with mom, and then some lifestyle images with her parents and her furry brothers.  :)

She was sweet as sugar in a custom blanket and hat set by Aspen Lane and her Mama requested a unicorn horn by Baby Birdie Boutique.

Here is sweet Valentina.  Keep scrolling, it was hard to narrow them down!  😉
