Hannah's Newborn Session by Debby Ditta Photography of Tomball / Houston Texas






I had a little surprise last fall when I photographed the C family for their Fall Family Session.  Lisa had brought a book titled "I'm a big sister" and wanted to pose her daughter holding the book as a pregnancy announcement.  Fast forward to now and here is baby Hannah for her newborn session!









Even though I purchased this prop a few years ago, I think this is the first time I have used it for a newborn. Her Daddy saw it in the studio and wanted to use it for his baby girl. How sweet is that?!? The bowl has an interesting history...it is hand carved from the gnarled stump roots of a type of fir tree found in the mountains of China. 




 I don't see many blonde babies with hair like her 



3 year old big sister, Reagan, may have a future in newborn photography.  I thought this pull back was so adorable <3 


Today the jasmine vine was blooming in my backyard, so I cut some and weaved it into my boho teepee prop.  The whole studio smelled of sweet jasmine.





Six pounds of Hannah in her Daddy's big hands


Oh my goodness ...If you look up the word "LOVE" in the dictionary, this image would be there.

Sweeter than cupcakes...  Sisters Hannah and Reagan... One day soon, they will share Barbies, dresses and lip-gloss, but right now they are tiny best friends 










Congratualtions to the C family on your newest baby girl!  I am so happy to have photographed her for the newborn session!

Layla's Newborn Session by Houston Photographer Debby Ditta Photography of Tomball Texas



Layla was born a little early and photographed on her actual due date.  What a perfect date for her newborn session.  Before the session, I preselected the props, backdrops, and newborn prop clothing based on the style of her parents.  Before Layla was born, her Mother and I consulted by phone about the colors she liked, her style of the baby's future room and the style/colors of their home decor.

She also mentioned that she'd like to use the American Flag somehow (being a June baby) and use the flag images for her birth announcements to be sent around the 4th of July. Shhhhhhh... it's a secret :)



I recently found this toddler chair and floral tin at Canton trade days (aka. photographer's prop treasure hunt paradise).    I've been wanting to use it for a newborn session and what a perfect little baby to photograph on the chair!  Summer succulents are a must have photo accessory for summer babies too.


She gave us the prettiest newborn smile... we all melted in the studio over this happy baby.  She must have been dreaming of chocolate, unicorns, and butterflies.




Her Daddy picked out the props for this set.  He liked the white bucket and "Braveheart" mossy crown tieback.  Mommy selected the white lace bowl stuffer.  I think it all looks so beautifully composed together.









She has the best newborn baby chick hair.










When we had Layla's session, I had no idea that it would be Flag Day during the week.  How perfect to have posed a new little life with our nation's flag.  The future of America.






To inquire or schedule a maternity or newborn session please email or phone me through the following links.  It is best to schedule the newborn session months in advance, but I may be able to schedule a newborn on short notice if schedule allows.  Packages are available and can be viewed on the main website below:

Newborn Session - Baby Ethan by Tomball Newborn Photographer Debby Ditta Photography



Ethan is the first baby in the family to his parents.  My first baby was a boy too.  I remember those days that seemed to last forever.... It felt like he would always be little and my son being "big" seemed so far away.  It felt like just a few months ago that we were baby registering at Target and buying diapers in expectations of meeting our first baby.  Time has flown so quickly and I can hardly remember how small my little newborn was.  My son is a teenager now and if I didn't have pictures of him, I wouldn't remember how tiny he was.  Newborn photography is one of the few things on earth that actually increases in value over time.  Of course, it is sentimental value, but absolutely priceless!





Ethan's Daddy will one day very soon be putting golf balls with his son, but for now, he's still so little...



Ethan will have many sleepless nights, but right now... he's sleeping like a baby.


In a year, Ethan will be too big to fit inside the Borden's box...


In a month, Ethan will be to big to cuddle with his Mother just like this.


Ethan will always have a memory as a photograph of his Daddy kissing his sweet little head.


And three make a family.





These are my two favorite poses for parents.  It really slows time down for the day.  Baby will one day picking flowers for his Mommy and be "fixing things" with  Daddy and his box of tools... but for one day at Ethan's newborn session... he fit into his parents arms just like this.















Congratulations to the C Family on your newest addition and biggest blessing in the family!  Thank you for having me as your newborn photographer.  It was a pleasure to spend time with your family!

Sessions are 20 minutes in length.  Please arrive ready 20 minutes before your session, photographer will greet you and begin promptly at the planned session time.  Because sessions are scheduled back to back, if client is tardy, session time will be reduced or even cancelled without refund or reschedule.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What if there is bad weather or it is raining?
In case of photographer illness or emergency  -OR- In case of inclement weather, there will be a single make-up day set for August.  If you are unable to attend a make-up day –OR- there is rain again on the make-up day, then the amount paid towards the retainer will be available to use as a credit towards a local Tomball Session or Print Credit towards a past order.  No refunds will be given.

Where is the location
As of right now, the location is on the beach in Galveston along the seawall with the Pleasure Pier as a backdrop.  Because of Galveston construction on the beach, an alternative location may be of use and exact address will be available a week before the session. 

What if we have a family emergency or illness and need to reschedule?

In the case of client illness or client family emergency, please notify photographer as soon as possible.  Beach sessions are very limited in availability and rescheduling a beach location session may not be possible, but we can schedule for a local Tomball session for a later date. If needed.  Even though the Retainer is Non-refundable, the paid retainer can be applied towards a local session.

Reese is turning ONE! The first birthday session and cake smash by Debby Ditta Photography of Tomball/ Houston TX


Reese is a member of the Baby Bee One Year in Photography Plan.  I've been blessed to see her every four months of her first year.  From the newborn, infant, and sitter baby, to the one year birthday girl session.  She is such a precious darling angel and I look forward to seeing her each session.  

For her one year session celebration, her theme for the party is pink lemonade.  Her Mommy and Grandmother made her lemmony cake for her.  Think that lemons would be too sour for her?  Well... she loved the lemons, they were just her thing!










For the one year session I encourage parents to get in on the session.  We photographed Reese with her Mommy and Daddy.























One year happens so fast when you are a baby.  Only 365 days in between the above images of baby Reese as a newborn baby and Reese as a one year old baby.  She is in the same cream bowl for each image.  She went from a 4 pound baby to an independent sitter.
