Family Photos Houston: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands and Cypress
In the little world of family photography, one of the many parts of the job is being able to witness on a regular basis children interacting with their parents. Rest assured (ha!), we have much interaction during our sessions. You can ask any of my clients and they will tell you that a session with me will mean a lot of silliness with your kids. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I like a happy feel to my client’s galleries. In order to achieve this, there is quite a bit of direction given. It’s been referred to as organized chaos by my clients in the past and that really does sum up a session with me. <3 It’s the most beautiful orchestrated chaos and through such technique if we can call it that, we are able to get the most amazing images full of life! Galleries filled with joy and happiness between kids and parents, these are the photographs that families will so enjoy to see over the years. I know our own son who is just barely three, so loves and ackknowledges the family portraits we have displayed in our home. Sure, he seems to like those images with only him, but he really, really seems to show the most interest with the photographs with him and his daddy, those with him and me and those with all three of us. It is such sweetness to see and I want my clients to experience this too when their images are showcased in their homes.
Whether or not you are seeking an indoor or outdoor session for your family photos this season, I would love to chat with you. While my weekend appointments are booking up pretty quickly, I still have more availability during the weekdays. The weather will be so very lovely soon and the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye, so be sure to contact me now if you are even considering a family photography session this year or next for that matter. 😉
1st Birthday Photos Houston: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands and Conroe
It’s been so lovely to photograph this sweet baby girl MANY since she was a newborn! Lucky me! Wow, how time flies right as now she such a big girl. The signs of ‘baby’ are fading oh too quickly. We had a lovely morning documenting this beautiful child not too long ago at a nearby park. Her amazing mom and dad were along to help get the best faces! She has such a sweet personality as you can see! It is so fun to catch a variety of looks of my subjects. Sure, I’m a sucker for smiles, so I really make a point to get as many of those as possible. However, I do get many gorgeous non-smiley shots too in order to offer moms as much variety as I can in the time we have together.
If you are looking for candid style, more natural photographs with not too much ‘fuss’, then please consider me for your family photos this year!
My weekends for Fall and Winter 2016 are filling up fast! Please contact me now if you want to get a slot for this season!

So thinking about this most amazing momma and her now three kiddos…I thought it appropriate to share with you all this funny article I read over at the Huffington Post.
With your first pregnancy, everyone had words of wisdom and wouldn’t shut up about how life was going to change. How come no one has words of wisdom about how parenthood changes with each baby? Things are so different with the third, and here are some examples.
1. Parenting Style:
Kid No. 1: You spend hours of your day staring at your baby and smelling her head.
Kid No. 2: You spend hours of your day being a referee to yet another one of their fights.
Kid No. 3: You spend hours of your day away from the kids, hiding in the bathroom or closet.
2. Date Night:
Kid No. 1: It takes you 20 minutes to say goodbye to your baby, and once you leave, you call to check in five times. In the first hour
Kid No. 2: You blow your kids kisses from the door and tell the sitter you’ll keep your cell phone on.
Kid No. 3: Leave specific instructions to only call if there’s a broken bone or blood.
3. Choosing a Name:
Kid No. 1: You research names on hundreds of sites and books, write out all possible combinations, and get opinions from friends and family.
Kid No. 2: Might as well name this one after grandma/grandpa. Arthur or Bea are fine.
Kid No. 3: On the way home from the hospital, you pass a street that looks pretty and decide to go with that: Berkeley it is!
4. Going Out:
Kid No. 1: Mommy and Me, My Gym, Music and Me, you name it, you’re signed up for it.
Kid No. 2: The park is really nice, why should you spend all that money?
Kid No. 3: The poor kid goes to the bank, the grocery store and some days, the liquor store.
Kid No. 1: Plus sign on the pregnancy stick! Time to shop for maternity clothes!
Kid No. 2: Where did you pack away those maternity clothes? Meh, doesn’t matter, you’re holding out as long as you can.
Kid No. 3: “Regular” clothes? What’re those? You only wear maternity stuff these days. And the baby is 2.
6. Your Kid’s Clothing:
Kid No. 1: Everything is brand new, washed in delicate soap and properly folded and put away in the matching dresser or hung on color-coordinated hangers.
Kid No. 2: Hand-me-downs are washed and haphazardly checked for stains.
Kid No. 3: It’s cool if boys wear purple polka dots, right?
7. Parenting Style, Part II:
Kid No. 1: Race to pick up the baby whenever she cries, whimpers or blinks.
Kid No. 2: Race to pick up the baby so he doesn’t wake up kid No. 1.
Kid No. 3: Did anyone hear that? Is anyone going to help the baby? [Someone goes to nudge the baby swing with their foot.]

We are coming into what many would call ‘the most wonderful time of the year’. Yes, it most certainly is. The welcoming of cooler temps and all things ‘holiday’ is among us. It is the best reminder of the most precious things to us. The first that pops to mind is family and friends. What better way to celebrate the season than to have some amazing, professional images taken of your family. 😉 Seems like a grand idea, right?
While it may seem a little early for such agenda items, rest assured, the calendar is becoming pretty full for Captured Simplicity Photography. So, if you want to get your top choice for dates, please don’t delay in contacting me!
How about this beautiful family! I got to photograph this sweet baby girl as a newborn and now have had the privilege to photograph her again as she is now not so much a baby. Love these guys!

For my current clients, I began offering the smallest of sessions for little ones under one year of age. These milestone sessions are just perfect for documenting those precious babies every month to every couple of months. A milestone session focuses on your baby and nothing else. I do not have props or set ups. Typically these session are done indoors where the youngest ones are most comfortable. However, I am not opposed to do such a session outdoors if the weather is good. 🙂
How stinkin’ adorable is this sweet baby girl!!!!?? I can’t get enough of those cheeks and those bright eyes. How about that smile!! Oh the joy this gal brings to her family and friends! They are just the cutest at this age. Not yet too mobile and all sorts of baby chatter going on. <3 It seems like the ‘baby’ look will last forever, but it so quickly, in the blink of our eyes, becomes more and more like a little person. The ‘baby’ cheeks and amazingly, squishy rolls fade away and once these little ones because mobile, that’s it…they just start to become little mini me’s. hehe. More the reason to make sure to get beautiful images of your baby!
