Four month baby photography is gloriously fun — baby has learned to hold his head up, grab toes, coo and smile, and just generally be adorable in every way. Today, I’m sharing some four month baby photography that is sure to make you curl your toes from the cuteness. It’s also a great excuse to share one of my favorite poems, On Children by Kahlil Gibran:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

I’m always so pleased when a family chooses to make time for professional photography together, especially when it’s outdoor family photos at a pretty park. All too often, mom and dad only think of getting photos of their children. Family photos create something wonderful to treasure. After all, our family is how we learn about ourselves and the world when we’re little, and they’re always a part of us. It makes me think of the poem Family Is Like a Circle by Nicole M. O’Neil:

A family is like a circle
the connection never ends
and even if at times it breaks
in time it always mends
a family is like the stars
somehow they’re always there
families are those who help
who support and always care
A family is like a book
the endings never clear
but through the pages of the book
their love is always near
A family is many things
with endless words that show
who they are and what they do
and how they teach you so you know
but don’t be weary if it’s broken
or if through time its been so worn
families are like that—
they’re split up and always torn
but even if this happens
your family will always be
they help define just who you are
and will be apart of you eternally

For these outdoor family photos, it threatened to rain in the early part of the shoot, but we decided to go with it anyway and I brought a cute umbrella prop to match the weather for the little girl. Everything turned out great. I photographed this girl as a baby and it is fun to see her so grown up now!

One of the great pleasures of working as a Dallas family photographer is watching families change and seeing kids grow up. I love seeing their personalities develop and capturing the changing dynamics between siblings. Today, I’m sharing family photos from a recent session in my East Dallas studio and they are adorable.

This is a repeat client — you can see another family photo session here — and they have three of the cutest kids. When baby number three came along, I shot her newborn photos. This is the six-month session for that girl with siblings included: three girls and mom. Just darling.

Mom wanted an in-studio photo session for her girls in bright, colorful outfits, and that’s what we did. I always shoot in both color and black and white. This time, I leaned more heavily on color photos to capture the vibrancy of their clothing and accessories. Also, take a look at the color of the girls’ eyes: so striking.

When I’m doing family photos, I always get solo pictures of each person, as well as group shots. Everyone — especially a child — wants his or her chance to be in the spotlight. Plus, when clients order prints, it makes for a nice wall grouping to have a family shot in the middle surrounded by individual pictures.

I hope you enjoy these Dallas family photos. If you’re interested in family photography, contact Miette Photography for more details.

One of the best parts of being a DFW baby photographer is the interaction I get to have with the kids. Today, I’m sharing some positively adorable photos of a boy from my Dallas studio. This little guy was six months old and is a repeat client on a family plan for photos, including newborn photography and one-year baby photography.

This is such a magical age when they’re learning how to express themselves and interact with the world. They remind me of the joy of living and the beauty that is always available in small pleasures. It makes me think of a poem called Through Your Eyes by Suzanne Eichman:

Through your eyes I see the stars so bright, the moon, and the darkness of night.
I see butterflies and flowers that dance in the breeze.
I see the wind as it blows, and the leaves fall, the newness of snow, the glory of it all.
All of this so day to day, but through your eyes it all seems new. So when life starts to get me down, and things start to give me trouble…through your eyes I’ll look, my child.
For you see life like no other.

These photos actually required two sessions because we realized about 10 minutes into the first one that the little boy was pretty sick. Sometimes re-shoots happen, they are very rare, and it is usually with toddlers. Almost every time, it is because they are sick and mom didn’t know it.

When this baby came back for the second time, he was feeling much better and you can see how happy and cute he is. The toddler cowboy boots were perfect for the little red cowboy hat I had on hand. Grandma made the precious outfit with the suspenders and pageboy hat.
