Jennifer Najvar Photography welcomes you to our new home – with a new and improved website and blog focused on Newborn Portrait Photography – at http://www.jennifernajvar.com. Come with us!
Many of the posts on this blog include personal projects, but this one is particularly personal for me. Last summer, when I heard the news that an old house which has been a part of my family for generations would soon be demolished, I knew I wanted to make one last trip out and try to document as much of its character and history as I could.
It may seem odd that I would care to remember a fly swatter hanging on the wall or the colors of paint chipping away, but I felt compelled to photograph every single detail – not only for my own memory, but for the collective memory of my family. In my mind, the house itself has become as much of a character as those who have lived in it and spent time in it over the years. I love this old house and the stories that I’ve been told about it for as far back as I can remember. I know that it will be gone soon, but in my memory, and in these few photos at least, it will live on, and I think that’s nice.
This little angel belongs to a dear friend, and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to capture each of these precious milestone moments throughout his first year. With many of my friends far away, living in cities around the country, I absolutely cherish the chance to see him grow. They do it so quickly!
Only a few hours into the world

Introducing our latest tiny client; at four months, he is simply precious with his big brown eyes.
This particular session was donated to the 2013 Austin Boxer Rescue annual silent auction, so thank you to the family for bidding! The proceeds benefit a great Austin cause whose mission is to rescue unwanted or abused Boxers and place them safely into caring families. I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to contribute.
