Hi there! Welcome to the Amanda Carter Photography blog. A journal about my sessions, motherhood, tips & tricks, all my favorite things, and the beauty & joy that is motherhood!

Hi, I'm Amanda!

Lifestyle Newborn Session | In-Home | Aubrey TX Photographer | The Gomez Family

Jul 2, 2021

Rosalie Sky.  Have you ever heard a more precious name for a baby girl? Rose’s mama Cyndi has been a sweet friend of my little sister for years.  I was over the moon excited when she asked me to do a lifestyle newborn session for their family.  Rose made her arrival on Mothers Day of all days at 41 + 2 gestation.  Girlfriend must have been quite cozy inside mama to hang on that long! Or maybe, just maybe, she was cherishing as mush alone time with mama as she could before joining the beautiful chaos that is three kids.

In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

While I have met Cyndi & Jesse’s kiddos before at birthday parties over the years, this was the first time I really had the opportunity to get to know Jude and Lucy.  Seeing different personalities in siblings is by far one of my favorite parts of family photography.

While they were both shy, Jude (5) was eager to please… and eager to get the ice cream he was promised if he did. 🙂 Little Lucy (3) made it her mission not to smile for the camera but she just couldn’t help wanting to be like brother when he was hamming it up for the camera.  It was so funny to watch her refuse to smile and then sneak a peek and brother cheesing and instantly change her tune.

And then there was their newest addition, sweet Rosalie.

6 weeks young and allllllllllllll about Cyndi during our session. The bond between a newborn and mama is the sweetest.  Rose was instantly calm anytime she was in mamas arms or better yet– nursing.  I just marvel at how God made a mothers body able to sustain and comfort a little one so naturally.

Cyndi & Jesse what an incredible family you have.  I have scrolled through your blog post images at least 20x and can’t wipe the smile off my face every time I do.  The picture of parenthood it paints is so beautiful.  Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture such sweet memories.  Getting to welcome new babies with a Lifestyle Newborn Session is definitely becoming a new favorite of mine!

P.S. I love Tex (their pup) a lot.  Like a lot a lot.  It was the best surprise getting to have him as part of our session!
