Key Milestone: 3 month Baby Session
If you miss the opportunity to have your newborn photographed (best time between 6 to 8 days old) - don't fret! A very special time to capture those adorable smiles can be done between 3 to 4 months of age. Now able to hold their heads up and push up on their tummy - it's the perfect time for your babies first portrait session. Both mom and dad participate in this session as well!
These little ones tire quickly - thus we capture those precious sleeping images. Sessions can be done here at PICHE Photography in the Katy/Houston Texas area or can be done in the privacy of your own home - the most preferred option for first time parents.
This summer we had the opportunity to travel back to my home state in Massachussetts to photograph new parents Patrick & Amanda's first child. I also had the opportunity a few years ago to photograph their engagement & wedding day! A very special couple!
Introducing sweet baby Sophia! Patrick & Amanda welcomed sweet baby girl Sophia into this world on February 26, 2010.

Precious Katy & Houston Babies...
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph baby Baxter and his mom. This was Baxter's first professional photography session. Just shy of six months, a perfect time to have your baby's first portraits done if you missed the newborn time (0-3mo). Six months old - curious expressions and melt your heart smiles! Not quite yet sitting up on his own (capture that time around 9 months) but he loved standing in moms lap. Check out those litte cubby legs - love it!
We gave Baxter a work out and he did fall asleep so we could capture those beatiful baby portraits of him sleeping cuddled up to mom. Generally speaking, I love to photograph the babies at 3-4 months so we can get the sleeping portraits as they stay asleep longer and you can manipulate them without waking them. The closer your baby get to 6 months we may or may not get the sleeping baby photos. We were blessed that we tired sweet baby boy Baxter out!
Important times to capture your babies first year - Newborn Portraits, 3 month portraits, 6 month portraits, 9 month portraits and the One Year Portrait session. See my Resources page on my website for more information.
I like to think of it this way...

Last week my daughter Brianna and I had the opportunity to go camping at Enchanted Rock. This is one place that we have wanted to go hiking. Packing up our backpacks with all the necessary gear - we headed off for a two night adventure camping in the back country at this state park. We put in almost 15 miles exploring the area, hiking the trails and enjoying lunch at the top of Enchanted Rock.
First night no problems. The second night - was an adventure! Now anyone who has camped in the back country know you have critters that are looking for an easy meal. Experienced campers we are no food in our tents - hung our food in a bag hanging from a tree. High enough off the ground and low enough that a critter in the tree couldn't get into it.
It's about 11:30 pm - Brianna in a deep sleep and me just about to nod off hear a large thump on the side of the tent. It almost sounded like a rock was thrown at the side of the tent. Night vision - I sat up to see the face of a racoon peering inside! The rain flap on our tent is only about 3 inches from the ground - that curious fat critter crawled under the flap hence the loud sound! I hit the side of the tent and hissed at this critter and thankfully he left. With our hearts pounding we lay close to one another bundled up in our sleeping bags. We listened to him try to get into our hanging bag of treats - he was unsuccessful and after about an hour - we were back into a peaceful slumber.
Here are a few shots taken from my lightweight Cybershot. Enjoy!

What a busy fall! Realizing that I haven’t posted anything to my blog since August and it’s almost November, I knew I was way overdue to update my followers.
September was pretty busy here at PICHE photography. I am happy to announce I now offer custom framing! Something I’ve been working on for a few months.
I also kept busy the past two months with a few Pregnancy sessions, several high school seniors, Eagle Scout Portraits, and a few baby and newborn sessions. Throw in some volunteer work for Taylor High School Choral Department and the Taylor High School Band Department - two months flew right by. Here are just a few sessions that kept me busy.
6 days new!
Here is a poster that I photographed and designed for THS Expressions. They are a show choral group and their performance was awesome! What a great group of kids to work with.
That's all for now. I'm working on a new project and joint marketing program for a comercial client that has me really excited. If all goes well, I'll post that info later! Enjoy this beautiful weather!
