Freezing a moment in time | Plano Texas Newborn Photographer


If you found me while seeking a Newborn Photographer in Plano, Texas, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Rachel, of Rachel Friedman Photography - one of the best newborn photographers in Plano, just off Windhaven and the tollway. You can find details about my newborn and family sessions here or contact me directly here! Or if you want to hear more about gorgeous Madelyn’s newborn session, please continue to read on below.

It’s only fitting that one of my last sessions in my old studio in the midwest was with a mom who was one of the first people I met when I moved to Chicago over a decade prior when we were both MILES from motherhood. What I could have never guessed when she booked the session was that we’d spend our session discussing our impending departures. Their family was about to move to Indy and we were just days from having our official offer to move to the Dallas Fort Worth area.

These photos - they mark Miss Madi’s second week of life but also her first and only month living in the town where she was born. They capture the transition of a couple whose sole focus was each other, and now they are both gaga over their gorgeous girl. Their life was a whirlwind of job changes, moving boxes and the sleep deprivation that comes with the first weeks of parenthood, and I was blessed with the honor of freezing this moment in time for them. Capturing all of Madilyn’s tiny newness, from her amazing head of dark hair to her angel kiss birthmark over her eye. All of that can be outgrown and can change, but this moment in time can be frozen in photographs that can last a lifetime.

When I chat with my clients before their sessions, I always ask about baby’s nursery decor. Of course, if you’ve seen much of my work, you know that it’s a lot of white with a splash of black and white, but on the occasion that I can tie in a pop of color, I’m happy to, especially when mom has a vision. This mom has had a lifelong love of the color purple, so we tied in some purple tulips that would compliment baby’s nursery perfectly.
