Turning Memories in to Timeless Wall Portrait Art

Houston newborn and family portraits by Lisa Carr, CPP, with Belly to Baby Studios, are timeless pieces of artwork. We love to create finished artwork for our client’s home. We will help you and guide you all the way from Portrait session concept to Portrait completion. During your consultation, we will discuss where you plan on hanging your selected portrait in your home. This is important for us photography wise so we capture your images with the end in mind. For example, if the space warrants a vertical Wall Portrait Art, we want to make sure we have plenty of vertical images for you to select from.

When is the best time for my pregnancy and newborn portraits to be taken?

Houston Maternity Photographer, Lisa Carr, with Belly to Baby Studios, shares a few tips on timing for your portraits.

 Maternity: The best time to document this milestone is between weeks 28-34 of your pregnancy. If you have gained little weight, it is best to do this closer to the 36 week mark. We will consult with you and discuss your vision for your portrait prior to your session. For clothing we recommend classic, simple lines; clothes that will not date your portrait. We have a few items in our maternity gown closet that are designed for pregnancy sessions. You are welcome to bring some of your own clothing, too.

Maternity Portraits Tip: remember to keep the clothing simple, and try to avoid patterns. For pregnancy portraits you can be photographed with or without your belly exposed; whatever you are comfortable with. You are also encouraged to bring your own special items and props that you would like to include in your portrait session. Some items that moms have included are: ultrasounds, letter blocks, tiny hats and boots, gender reveal signs, and other personal creative items.

We always recommend a fresh mani and pedi, as well as hair and makeup. Make your portrait session a day of pampering!

 Newborns: The first weeks after birth can be hectic and exciting, so I encourage parents to schedule their session before the birth so that there is one less thing to think of, and one more thing to look forward to.

If your baby’s birth weight is between 9-10 pounds, then we will want to photograph your new baby within the first 8-10 days if possible. If your baby weighs under 7 pounds at birth, we may suggest waiting a little longer. We would love for you to call the studio when your baby is born so we can suggest the best time to come. If you cannot schedule before your baby’s birth, don’t worry! Call us to get on our schedule asap. We are professionals and photograph newborns up to 6 weeks old.

We recommend you feed your newborn at home then again at our studio prior to the session, to help keep your baby nice and relaxed during the newborn session. We have several amenities needed for newborns; such as a changing table, wipes and other items.

We will use a variety of props to clothe your newborn, and also hopefully capture some nudes of your baby. You are welcome to bring your own special blanket, hat, or rattle as props for your portraits. You will have access to our prop collection that includes: wraps, hats, diaper covers, and tutus. We also encourage you to bring a few accessories to compliment our props to add a bit more of your personality. In the past, some moms have opted to bring hair accessories, hair clips, and personalized hats and blankets.

We encourage you to view our online portfolio and to learn more about our sessions and artwork. We are a full service studio, conveniently located in the Galleria area in a commercial office building. We have a private nursing lounge so you can relax and feed your baby between sets. Houston newborn and family portrait photographers can be reached at 713-461-2862 to discuss your session and help you create art for your home and family to enjoy for years to come.

Pregnancy Portrait

Houston maternity photographer, Lisa Carr with Belly to Baby studios, recently photographed this Pregnancy Portrait in the studio. The gown she is wearing as well as the wrap in this portrait are from our Prop Closet. We have a variety of gowns to choose from for your session. You have unlimited wardrobe changes during your portrait session. All of our maternity gowns are custom designed specifically for Pregnancy Portraits, and can easily be clipped and pinned so it fits you perfectly. We have gowns that can show off your bump as well as some that are sheer and can delicately showcase your baby bump.

The best time to complete your maternity session is late in your third trimester, usually 28-34 weeks. This allows you to capture the fullness of your pregnant form but not be too uncomfortable for posing. If you are beyond 34 weeks; don’t worry. We have photographed expectant moms up until the week of their delivery. Most moms opt for a morning of pampering before their session: hair, nails and make up. We can recommend a nearby salon that will pamper you and properly apply your make up before your session. Then after your session, enjoy a nice dinner out with your special someone to complete your fun day.
