Houston Family Photographer | Houston Child Photographer | Baby Photographer Houston bio picture
  • Hi. I'm Amy...a photographer here in Houston, Texas. Families, babies and children are what make my heart sing. I like to think I catch the divine in the ordinary using natural light and everyday settings. My style is pretty simple. It’s a dab of traditional (for my youngest clients) mixed with modern lifestyle portraiture, indoors and out. Candid shots are my favorite. I want to capture a child’s spirit and a family's personality, even if that's not traditional smiles. My #1 goal...to photograph families in real life, not something that was imagined or 'created'...to not just tell a story or get a certain 'shot', but to tell your story though a collection of photographs, capturing all the joy that fills your soul. The greatest satisfaction for me, is knowing when you look at these photographs years from now, they will radiate of all the splendor that your children have brought to your life and will offer an heirloom of memories for generations to come. If you want photographs that are a little different and are not afraid to let lose a little with your kids, then I most certainly am the photographer for you! Just click that little contact tab above and let's book your session. ;-)

Newborn Photographs Houston TX

What I loved most about this session was how laid back and easy going these new parents were.  Becoming a parent for the first time is one of the most life changing events one can ever have, in my opinion.   And while certainly we all will have those days (some more than others-ha!) that we are not our best, for the most part, there is an element of baby bliss or baby fog that gets us through it all with mostly smiles.  I celebrate baby fog and so enjoy seeing parents surrounded by it.  Such a joy to witness for sure.

Child Portraits Houston Texas

I’ve been able to watch this gal grow up so much this past year.  She is only a few weeks older than our son and just such a doll and among one of the easiest I’ve photographed.  She is a very happy girl who smiles a lot.  Certainly, you don’t have to be all smiles for photographs.  If that is not your child’s personality these days, then no problem.  Whatever the mood of your child, I’m flexible and will work with whatever cards I’m dealt for our session.  ;-)  I can tell you some of the most beautiful images are of children who are not smiling.

However, this gal was mostly smiles, so today I’m showcasing that.  <3

The Woodlands Underwater Photos

Just some more full of life, underwater photos.  I get a lot of questions regarding these photos.  Most recently I was asked by actually a couple of people if I am actually in the water when I take these.  So I just wanted to let everyone know that yes, I am in the water when I take these.  I’ve gotten pretty good at holding my breath as you can imagine.  I wish I was so good that I could take them without getting in, but honestly, I have no idea how I would be able to achieve such.    So for now, I am having the time of my life diving in and catching these kiddos underwater.

Please note that I am terribly behind on posting underwater photograph (and regular sessions) on the blog,

but please check out my Facebook underwater gallery HERE if you’d like to see more of these kinds of photographs.

Family Photographer Houston

A most unfortunate thing recently occurred.  I lost a ton of posts from my site.  A tragic loss not only because there was no rhyme or reason to it, but because it was hours upon hours of work lost…basically forever.  So here I am left to first of all tell you that never assume that your site is being backed up.  If you don’t know how to back up your site yourself, pay someone to do it.  When valuable data is lost, I promise you that having a recent backup will allow you to be back up and running smoothly and quickly.  Trust me when I tell you that the very last thing you want to ever here is that your work is lost forever.  It is a heartbreaking feeling that will make you want to scream an vomit.  Sorry for the transparency, but I never want anyone to go through what I’ve just gone through.

With that said, I will now be spending days attempting to repost all the post that went missing.  Many of which will be photos only with no text because unfortunately I simply do not have the time do invest in writing, which makes me terribly sad, but compromise must be made to move forward, right?  Going to just pick and choose in attempt to be most efficient.

For now, here is a little wall display I created.  Super cute, right?  Even if I can’t recall what the sizes are, you can still get the lovely idea.

It’s hard to believe this gal is now the big 2.0.  That’s 2 years old.  hehe

I swear just yesterday I was taking photos of her as a newborn.  Clearly not yesterday, but seriously, I recall the session so clearly, as nearly all the sessions I’ve had with this family.  Truly time flies when you are having fun right?

Underwater Child Photography Houston

Underwater photography.  Something that didn’t much interest me until now.  I suppose it’s because now we have our son and I will one day want some fun photographs of him swimming and such.  So, here I am…learning and playing around with underwater child photographs.  I was lucky to have a super awesome little swimmer to practice on for the first time just recently.   They are far from perfect.  I mean, there has to be some forgiveness for the fact that you are shooting in water, but I’m very pleased with how these turned out for my first go around. Over the summer, I will be doing many more of these underwater sessions so stay tuned.  I can’t wait to share them with you and perfect my skills!

In the blink of an eye, my little sister is all grown up and with a family of her own is proving to be the best mommy ever.

We did some maternity photos with just her before these, which I will show you soon.  Then we had to take just a few minutes..literally I think about less than 10 minutes, of her and my nephew just in my parents back yard.  The sun was setting and the sun rays were just so amazing.

Then, of course, we had to add dad into the mix for just a couple…even though as most husbands was a little less than thrilled, but he knows to just humor us at this point.  hehe  They will be welcoming baby BOY #2 in early July.  Can’t wait to meet the little guy and see what a great big brother my nephew will be!

Two of my favorite gals just being themselves.  And yes, they really do love each other this much.  <3

Makes you yearn for childhood again, right?  This is part one of these sweet sisters.  Part two (on the playground) coming soon.
