One of the best parts of my job as a Houston maternity photographer is being able to document some of the most important milestones for growing families, and this surrogate maternity session was one of them. Each family’s story is unique. While some the journey to parenthood is more challenging- the joy and anticipation for baby is always such an honor to witness!
Skylar and Collin initially reached out for birth photography with their surrogate mother, Alycia. As we talked, I could tell they had such a wonderful connection with her. Knowing how important this experience was for the three of them, they decided to do a maternity session as well!
Though the process of surrogacy is challenging with so many moving parts, there was a sense of calm between the three of them. Plus, so much joy! I was honored to take care of all of their session details from start to finish. This allowed them to just enjoy the process with Alycia!
Full Service Client Experience | Surrogate Maternity Session in Houston
During her wardrobe styling appointment, Skylar chose a beautiful white lace maxi dress from the Client Wardrobe. I love that she and Alycia started with a casual look before changing clothes for the second half of the session!
I also provided Skylar with professional hair and makeup on the day of their session. This service is included for each Signature session and I highly recommend it- it makes the session day such a breeze!
We then met in one of my favorite Houston locations with dreamy weeping trees covered in moss. As the sunset, the clouds opened up and the sky became vibrant shades of blue, pink and orange. It was truly showing off for this session!
A baby is the greatest blessing Alycia could share with this wonderful family. You could tell that Skylar and Collin were taking in these sweet moments together!
Knowing how much these portraits mean to this family and witnessing their beautiful bond was incredibly special. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it! Stay tuned for the birth session soon, my heart was so full after witnessing their baby bring born!
“We will cherish these pictures forever because they will remind us of how selfless and beautiful of a person she is, inside and out.”
After the Session
Giving families like this one portraits that will tell their story and can be passed down through the generations brings me so much joy. After the session, Skylar and Collin chose a beautiful heirloom album in a light grey leather color with blind debossing on the front. It’s absolutely stunning!
