I talk a lot on this blog about the importance of documenting your life whether via your iPhone or a professional photography session. In this ever-changing world of Snapchat filters and Instagram stories, we’re losing touch with the tangible memories we create every day. And sometimes we’re so busy doing other things, watching other people’s […]

Photos to document your pregnancy | Chelsea Q White Photography - Dallas Fort Worth maternity, newborn and family photographer

February 26, 2020

Pregnancy announcements are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to photograph especially if there’s a gender reveal involved. I love the excitement and anticipation of a new pregnancy and documenting those emotions to share with not only your future child but the world. Kate and Chris’s session at The Lumen Room in Dallas was […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There’s no bigger compliment than when a family comes back year after year for photos with me. The first time I photographed the Smith family was when Hudson was in Lauren’s belly and now, he’s nearly two and about to be a big brother. I loved […]

Ana is one of my best friends and it was such a joy to be able to photograph her growing twins last fall! Since we did the session in the winter, we chose to book a studio due to the weather and I think it turned out so well. I love the timeless look of […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve heard me talk about how I never thought I’d do a maternity session when I was pregnant. I also didn’t think I’d ever be a family photographer … and yet, my heart totally changed after becoming pregnant and now I loooove shooting families, newborns, and maternity sessions. #neversaynever, […]

Allison and her sweet husband were such a joy to photograph at their maternity session at Lakeside Park in Dallas. It was a warm May evening with high school prom goers every where but we were able to scope our own little spot out right by the water! Allison was simply glowing and I loved […]

I talk to moms all the time who stress out about their family photo session. You’re paying good money for a session and it would feel like such a waste if your kids were wild and uncooperative, or if your photographer didn’t do the job you had hoped they would. I hear you. You want […]

Between expecting friends and clients, there are bumps all over the place these days and I love it! I’m happy to share this maternity session at the Dallas Arboretum and I’m obsessed with the pink dress Lauren wore! I love how Lauren and Shaun’s winter maternity session turned out (though you’d never know it was […]

My guess is you know someone with a photography horror story. Or maybe you are that person. The wedding photographer didn’t get a photo of the mom and bride and barely knew how to work their flash. The amateur newborn photographer/nextdoor neighbor did the session in his garage and it took four hours and not […]

Lauri Ann has been a friend for a long time — we both started as newbies at our job together six years ago and formed a tight friendship. Though we’ve both moved on, I’m so thankful we’re still friends! Last fall, I had the honor of doing her maternity session at Arbor Hills in Plano. […]
