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. ;-)

Sure, I love taking photos.  There is no denying that.  I truly love it so very…VERY much.  I also very much love little people.  I enjoy meeting them.  I enjoy getting to know them during our session.  I love the challenge of  capturing the true personalities of children.  To give mommas a collection of photographs that truly reflect who their child is at this moment of life.  It is why I have chosen this path for this season of my life.

But also what is just icing on the cake, is when I get the opportunity to really get to know mommas.  I am a bit biased lately to meet mommies that have a child around the same age as our son.  It is just extra fun to talk and share stories of our children at this age, whatever age that is at the time.  Such was the case with this sweet momma who took the time to share with me her love of cooking and food, as well as their recent adventure in finding foods that her daughter will eat.  It was as if she were reading my mind.  I love food and cooking…and these days coming up with meals for our little one has been a bit of a challenge.  However, after chatting with this mommy, I was so encouraged and left with a plethora of ideas.  So thankful to be able to share not only photography, but life with other families.

What a joy to have the privilege of being chosen by other photographers to capture important milestones for them.  It’s really a very exciting thing for me.  Certainly, I highly value all of my customers, but when one of your (very talented) colleagues hire you, it has a very special meaning.  I was so happy to have been there for this mommy and her family only a day after their precious daughter arrived.

These are a Fresh 48 session, which is a session of photographs taken within 48 hours of your baby being born. A Fresh 48 session is typically done at the hospital, unless your baby is born at home or a birth center, of which we can make special arrangements for such a session.  I know that likely many of you would think that photographs in a tiny hospital room could not turn out very well.  However, if done well, photographs in a hospital room can be so lovely.  If you would like to capture the newness of your new baby or are interested in possibly gifting such a session to a family, please contact me for more details.  These are wonderful memories to have captured since babies change so much even within the first week of life.  These sessions are really great for families who are not quite interested in full out birth photography and not necessarily interested in a traditional newborn session.

Underwater Photography Houston

The summer has come and gone.  I had such a blast with a handful of clients who chose me to capture their kiddo in the pool just swimming and playing around.  I am still booking these sessions.  We live in Texas and the pool is heated, so if you’d like one of these sessions, I have a few spots still open for Sept. & Oct.  Then, underwater photo sessions will be on hiatus until April 2015.

Here are just a few from Mr. C’s session I recently did.  So. Much. Fun.

There are lots more underwater photos from sessions on my Facebook page.  I do plan to post them all to the blog, too, but I’m just a wee bit behind on that goal.

From newborns to three…it’s almost a blur!  How quickly they grow!

So lucky to have gotten to photograph these two cutie pies many times in-between!!!

And how about those adorable little baby slings at the end of the collage.  Their granny made those for them and I couldn’t resist a few pics of the girls wearing their babies.  Too cute!

Such a lively and sweet little boy he has become.  It seems like just yesterday I met him for the first time shortly after he was born to do his newborn photographs.  Looking forward to meeting his baby sister soon and to watch him be a great big brother!

And even though this beautiful mommy to me did not plan on being in these photographs, I’m thrilled beyond words that she humored me and participated a bit.  She was just glowing!

It is always fun when I get to clients and their growing families.  I met this momma when she was just newly pregnant with this little fella when we did his big sister’s birthday pics.  Now, he just turned one.  How the year is nearly a blur.  He and my son are only about two weeks apart so it’s been so neat to watch them both grow into little people and look less and less like babies.

Houston Hospital Photographer

I’m so behind on blog posts.  Months behind, I’m afraid to admit.  However, I’m going to try and get caught up over the next couple of weeks.  So stay tuned for lots of fresh photos..beginning today with a Fresh 48 hospital session.  These are great sessions for those who are not quite comfortable or interested in full out birth photography.  A Fresh 48 sessions takes place at the hospital within 48 hours of your baby being born.   Babies change so very much in the firsts few weeks of life, it’s so nice to have beautiful images of them when they are so new!  This particular Fresh 48 took place only a few hours after the baby was born.  Certainly, if the schedule and timing is just right, these sessions can take place very soon after your baby has been born.:-)

Galveston Beach Photographer

What fun to help document a first trip to the beach than with photographs.  I was super thrilled when this momma contacted me stating they would be in Galveston with their family and wanted me to take their photos while they were there.  I don’t do a whole lot of beach sessions, but would love to do more if the opportunity presented itself.  (hint-hint);-)

And look, I get it.  Galveston, Texas is not necessarily known for their pristine beaches.  However, I can tell you that the water is quite blue and photographs very nicely.  I feel like that (sort of) makes up for the non white sand.  And if it’s whiter sands you are seeking, there are spots where the sand is pretty nice, but just not on the actual shoreline.  Instead it’s just a bit further back from the beach.  You can see just a couple of photos with such sand in a couple of photographs at the end of this collage.  Just as I did with this family, we can get some fun photos that showcase your family and the beautiful, blue water and then we can also get a few shots in the cleaner sand if you’d like.   Just sayin’.  You know you want beach photos now don’t you?  <3
