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. ;-)

Now, it’s not often that I’d refer to a newborn baby as “handsome”, but, by golly, this little guy is SO handsome!  Maybe it’s his thick gorgeous hair and soulful expression that make him look more mature than a typical newborn and make “handsome” seem like a more appropriate description than “cute” or “adorable” (although he is those things as well).  I don’t know, but I am just so taken with him and his sweet family!

His beautiful big sister seems to be at an age where she’s not quite sure what to make of him yet and isn’t quite the “doting big sister” at the moment (we had to bribe her a bit to stay in the shots!), but it probably won’t be long before she’s completely enamored with him!  It’s always interesting to watch the sibling dynamic begin and continue to watch it evolve as children age.  Right now, big sis is a little reserved and hesitant to embrace her role, but in a very short time she’ll probably be begging to hold her baby brother and trying to change his diapers at every opportunity!  And this time next year, this handsome fella will likely be stealing her puzzle pieces and wanting to get into everything that his big sister is doing!  Take all the pictures you can, because it all changes so quickly!

This family of six was such a joy to photograph because they are so filled with joy!  Seriously, have you ever seen a happier bunch of people?!?!  (Not just people, actually, even their beautiful Golden Retriever is smiling!)  With two awesome parents, three cheeky boys, one darling little girl and one sweet pooch, this crew was a blast to hang out with and photograph!  (Almost makes me want to have three more kids of my own! Haha!  Almost! 😛 )  Seriously, though, they are such lovely people, I could have happily enjoyed the whole day with them!

I love seeing how each child has his or her own cute and quirky little personality that photographs so well.  I hope to get the privilege of continuing to capture these adorable smiles and bright eyes as these cute little humans grow!  I love my clients and always look forward to seeing them year after year for family photos.  Families and photo sessions like this definitely make me joyful and appreciate my job all the more!

Newborn photo sessions are always precious (because all newborns are precious, of course!), but there is just something so wonderful about being there at the very first moments.  By “very first moments” I mean within the first 48 hours after birth, when parents and siblings are just becoming acquainted with this perfect new little being.  It’s a sacred time of initial bonding and oh-so-beautiful connections, with nursing, cuddling and all the fabulous feelings that come with a new baby.  (It’s not quite as raw and intrusive as some may consider full-on “birth photography”, so it’s a nice compromise if you want very early pictures of your newborn in the hospital or birth center, but also want a little more privacy and time to “pretty yourself” up a bit:-).)

This family is so sweet and you can see how taken these two gorgeous big sisters are with their new little sister, Emmeline.  (Such a lovely name!)  These three girls will experience so much together over the years and share a bond like they’ll have with no one else.  It’s so incredible to be able to document the moments when this bond first began!

At eight months old, babies really start having and being FUN!  I mean, they’re wonderful from the get-go and always have cute things they do, but it seems like eight months is where they really start getting interested in and into EVERYTHING. (And keeping you on your toes at all times, of course!)  Scooting, crawling, pulling up, standing, “furniture walking”…these are things that many babies this age start doing and can’t get enough of.  They just wanna move!

Notice I said, “many babies” not “all babies”.  It’s kind of funny to read the milestones that tell you the typical things that babies of a certain age are doing, then there’s always the disclaimer that “all babies are unique and do things at their own pace”.  That part was usually a bit reassuring for me, as I have a son who has definitely done things at his own pace!  He’s absolutely brilliant, but he has had his own developmental timeline from the beginning!

With her wide-eyed, inquisitive expressions, this beautiful eight month old certainly looks like she’s ready to get into something!

 I just did a quick look back through my posts and I can’t believe that it has been so long since I posted any maternity session photos!  (Not sure why, since I do so LOVE the gorgeous baby bumps!!!  I’ve just had so many different sessions that I also love!  Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE my job?  Lots of “love” today!)  So what better way to bring back pregnancy posts than with this gorgeous family in their amazingly vivid colors!?!?  I can’t tell you how much I adore their color choices for this shoot!  Talk about making a perfect pregnant belly “pop” even more, how fabulous is mom’s dress?!?!  And sweet big sister in her adorably coordinated outfit could not be cuter!  The new little blessing who’s one the way is not just being born into an incredibly loving family, but a fashionable one as well!

I know I gush all the time about how wonderful my clients are, but seriously, I have THE BEST clients!
