I was so excited to see this little boy and shoot his signature newborn portraits. One year ago I had a photography session with his big brother when he was newborn. 🙂
Sebastian looks just like him.
What is behind Sebastian’s name? From the Latin name Sebastianus which meant “from Sebaste”. Sebaste was the name a town in Asia Minor, its name deriving from Greek σεβαστος (sebastos) “venerable” (a translation of Latin Augustus, the title of the Roman emperors). Saint Sebastian was a 3rd-century Roman soldier martyred by arrows after it was discovered he was a Christian. Due to the saint’s popularity, the name came into general use in medieval Europe, especially in Spain and France. It was also borne by a 16th-century king of Portugal who died in a crusade against Morocco.
I’m truly humbled and blessed to have the opportunity to photograph some of the most happiest and beautiful expecting Mommies in the San Antonio area. Melissa is the most recent expecting Mommy I photographed at my studio. The beautiful soul that is Anna Castro referred Melissa to me. I was so humbled to think that Melissa believed in my talent and work so much that she was willing to drive 30 minutes to my studio for a maternity session. Melissa is a beautiful Mommy and her Maternity Session looks as though it is straight out of a magazine. Here are some sneak peeks images from Melissa’s Maternity Session. Enjoy!
Welcome to the world Victoria!
This name means “victory” in Latin, being borne by the Roman goddess of victory. It is also a feminine form of Victorius. This name was borne by a 4th-century saint and martyr from North Africa. Though in use elsewhere in Europe, the name was very rare in the English-speaking world until the 19th century, when Queen Victoria began her long rule of Britain. She was named after her mother, who was of German royalty. Many geographic areas are named after the queen, including an Australian state and a Canadian city.
When I met Lisa first time in ZARA store I knew we will have photo shoot together. That time I was pregnant and I had to wait for right time. 🙂
Today finally I am posting her beautiful photos and video, where you can see original colors of nature and dramatic transformation of colors on picture. What I can say more: “Power of Photography”
Enjoy my video and feel free leave the comment below 😉
Travis was such a fun and silly little boy to work with. He made everyone in the studio laugh. I love to see kiddos who are in such a great mood and who are always smiling! April, you did an amazing job making him smile!! Thank you!
Mini sessions are really fun. Every baby is different and so is every session. I painted a new backdrop and this time I wanted something more simple that would make the baby pop out from the backdrop. Emma was an an amazing little model. Emma’s Mom decided to extend the mini session to a 30 minute session. The first set was about 10 minutes. The rest of the mini session was an absolute dream!
