Happy Birthday, Sweet Sadie! Frisco, TX Children’s Photographer

Man, I have SO much to catch up on. It’s been too embarrassinly long since I’ve blog and I have way too many sweet images to share with y’all. Hoping for a routine on blog posts this summer, so stay tuned. First up is sweet little Sadie. I photographed her newborn over a year ago and she came back on a gorgeously lit night back in March for her birthday portraits. I keep my one year sessions fairly simple. They are always done outdoors, and if you’d like, we can always end with a cake smash (you provide cake smash and any additional props).

Have a little one turning one this summer? Don’t fret about the impending heat! We can always do these early in the morning just after sunrise and still catch glorious light, and likely, a slightly better mood on your little one than if we attempted sunset hour.

snapberry photographs in frisco, tx is always booking milestone photography sessions whether it be one year, two year, ten year or the monthly milestones during the first year. Use the contact button to check on my availability!



If you give a kid a donut. Donut shop session at the Donut Kitchen; McKinney, TX Family Photographer

It had been a while (since Christmas) that I busted out the camera on all three of my own little people at the same time and I racked my brain for a few weeks trying to figure out what I could do (aside from the upcoming bluebonnets). I wanted something that was “them” and finally landed on one of their most favorite things in the world: donuts.

Enter the Donut Kitchen in Mckinney, TX. One of the cutest shops we’ve been to that has some of the best donuts around. They were super accomodating with my request to photograph 3 crazies just before they closed and even offered up freshly made (like, finished them off while I waited) donuts. If you haven’t been, the chocolate with M&M’s on it is top notch. And if you haven’t been, you definitely need to go!

Give some kids some donuts, of course they get hyped up. My youngest, Norah wants the gooey-est one and it lands on her pretty dress within 1.5 minutes. It may not have turned out exactly as I envisioned, but I was their BFF for a little while, anyway, after allowing them donuts two days in a row:)


Snapberry Photographs 2015 Family Sessions; Frisco, TX Family Photographer

2015 was an amazing year for families for me. My fall season was my best yet and I have each and every one of the fabulous clients picture below to thank for that. I don’t share a TON of family stuff during the fall season as not to spoil any Christmas card images or gifts, so here is a quick peek at what kept me so busy last year (espeically from August-December). I’ll be running a booking special this summer again, so stay connected to my facebook page, as always, to be the first to know!



Studio Posed Newborn Sessions vs. Lifestyle Newborn Sessions; Frisco, TX Newborn Photographer

Snapberry Photographs offers two different types of newborn sessions. Posed newborn sessions (those typical images of sleepy newborns in the cutest of poses) occur only in my in home studio. Lifestyle sessions occur in your home. Lifestyle sessions are NOT posed sessions where I bring all of my lovely props to you. They are, in fact, the exact opposite. Please see the examples provided and descriptions of each session to see which is right for you! Any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Posed Newborn Sessions with Snapberry Photographs

I offer 3 different tiers of posed newborn session pricing. For complete details, please email me at jenna@snapberryphotographs.com

Posed sessions can last up to 3 hours long depending on the session you choose as it takes great patience (and sometimes a long time!) to get the little ones sleepy enough for the poses. We also spend time snuggling and stopping to feed if necessary. My studio temperature is kept incredibly toasty to keep your little one warm and I have a few other tricks up my sleeve in my environment that ensure a nice sleepy baby. These are things that I can not control in your home environment which is why I simply only do posed work in my studio.

My highest tier newborn package does include family and sibling poses and you will see a few examples of those here as well.

If you want to see your baby posed in a variety of ways with various hats/headbands/wraps and props, then my studio sessions are for you. If you’d like to include a sibling and a whole family shot at the end, then my highest level posed session is for you!



Lifestyle Newborn Sessions with Snapberry Photographs

Lifestyle newborn sessions are done in your home. Typically I conduct these sessions in your master bedroom, the nursery and maybe your family room. What is most important is that your home has ample light as I utilize all natural light for these sessions.

These sessions are at one set price and generally last 1-1.5 hours, depending on if siblings are involved, usually. The focus of these sessions is the entire family unit and siblings, if applicable. Baby will almost always be swaddled (to keep them cozy, warm and content), but can be in a simple, well fitting onesie if they tolerate that (i.e. aren’t getting cold).

These sessions are meant to capture your family in a more relaxed and candid way and can include feeding, reading stories, nursery details and simply lots of snuggles. Images of baby alone are limited to simple swaddle poses of them in their crib, on your bed and close/tight shots of being held in a sibling or parents’ arms.

If a variety of family/parent/sibling images and the personal feeling of being in your own home are important to you, then my lifestyle newborn sessions are for you. If you are hoping for a large focus of just baby alone, then I revert you back to the studio posed sessions described above.


Snapberry Photographs 2015 Newborns; Frisco, TX Newborn Photographer

2015 was an incredible year for me. SO many beautiful families. So many fresh new babies. There were 50 sweet little ones last year, to be exact; 2 of which I had the honor of witnessing their very entrance into this world.  I can not thank each and every one of my clients enough for such a great year. It is an honor to be chosen during such a brief, fleeting moment in your lives and I’m so happy to have been blessed with so many babies. I’m so excited to see what 2016 has in store for me. Enjoy a peek at ALL of my sweet newborns from 2015.
