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. ;-)

Family Photographer Houston

Thrilled to photograph families with older kids, as was the case with this super fun family!  And add some puppies in the mix and we most certainly have a winner!  Many might think that adding family pets into the mix is too much trouble or stress…but I can tell you that most often it is the total opposite.  I’ve found that often times that by throwing in puppies (I’ve never had any other kinds of family pets, but I’m certainly open within reason…hehe) it truly adds an extra bit of warmth and special love into the photographs.  Pet owners, especially those with dogs hold a special place in my heart because my husband and I share a love of pups.  And clients who want those pets to join in on our session, really make one happy photographer. <3

And did you know that pets are great for your health!  There are a plethora of articles and studies that will back me up in this.  Having a pet lessens loneliness, which is a wonderful benefit, as who wants to feel lonely?  Pets also help build immunity, get us outside and keep us more active.  They also help lower stress levels and blood pressure.  YAY!  And they are great listeners when you need a lending ear.  ;-)  Sounds pretty good, eh?

Okay…back to this awesome family!  Seriously, too cool for school.  I mean, look at them! They have a seesaw in their backyard.  They were extremely accommodating and a breeze to work with.  Thanks guys!  You rock!

Love these shots with animals! I agree with what you said about animals, my furbabies have changed my life! :) <3

Brittany

Kudos to you I always have so much fun with pets but can never get them to all cooperate at the same time! A

Becky

What fun pics!

Houston Child Photography

What’s wonderful about these two is that I’ve been photographing them since birth.  They are 2 years old now.  And somewhere in between, I’ve gained a wonderful friend, their momma.  ;-)  Although many sessions of this family have been outdoors, many have been inside.  I think I have photographed these two in almost every room in there home, but I have even more nooks and crannies, so to speak that have still not yet been explored and I look forward to continue making their home part of some of our sessions. ;-)

It is so wonderful to get to photographs kids as they grow…photographing the milestone birthdays and such.  Sure, being chosen to photograph their milestones has been amazing!  No question.  But there are even more things that make yearly photographs a really good idea.

There are many reasons why it’s good to have your kid’s photos done on a semi regular basis.  For one, your kid’s are familiar with the photographer already, for the most part.  We are not a complete stranger.  We remember more of what your child likes….what works and what doesn’t to get the best out of our session.  There is more freedom to do different things and really focus on a true collection of images capturing a variety of faces that truly showcase your child.  In this case in the photographs below….the twins had their favorite new toys…the Royal Family dolls, which were only made in limited number this last year.  You can see a video of them here.  hehe  Of course, these two got their own pair each. <3

Okay…this is part of another post of an extended family session I did over the holidays.  This wonderful momma wanted a mix of all the family in a variety of pics.  I was overjoyed to accommodate.   I quite enjoy capturing families who include grandma and grandpa.  Of course, we had to get a collection of immediate family too.  These guys were a blast.  We had intended to do all the photos outside, but it ended up the most blistering cold day out and this was the absolute only day everyone could get together so we just had to work with the bitter cold.

And this crew were such troopers….going outside in little bits.  hehe  You can imagine…everyone running outside…carefully listening to my directions….us grabbing a few shots and then all running back inside.  It was a funny site to be seen.  We ended up doing the majority of the session indoors and their Christmas tree was just too amazing not to incorporate into some of the photos.  So thankful to all the families that choose me to document their families!!  <3

If you would like to see the first part of this session, you can find it posted here.

I Love how you get so many different settings. This family is so beautiful.

Welcome to this world Baby A!  He’s a handsome fella right?  I so enjoyed meeting this family and documenting this special boy’s arrival into this world!  Such a super sweet crew with a breathtaking home, made my job way too easy!!

Baby boys.  Had me thinking about this article I read recently talking about how boys are so different from girls from birth.  For grins, I thought I’d list them and see if you agree. hehe

First, they say boys like motion.  As it turns out, they are 2 months ahead of girls, on average, figuring out the laws of motion.  Secondly, boys love crowds, which is funny because our just now six month old son loves the mall so much, to the dismay of his daddy, I’m afraid.  HA! And last, but certainly not least, boys are much more fearless than girls.  This could explain why many little boys are often found climbing on everything.

I’d say that I will have to agree with the statement.  Silly as it might be….and as obvious as it likely is…boys will be boys and we love them for that!

This is my new favorite session of yours :)

Chrissy Sutherland

These are so beautiful. The fact that they look like you are not posing the kids makes the shots more personal.

Paige Meyer

Love this natural in home lifestyle newborn session! Such genuine moments captured.

Meredith Janisch

Love the special moments you captured here!

Houston Family Photographers

The new year rings in and I am more excited than ever for the 2014 year.  I want to create pieces of art with your family.  Art that is bursting with life and emotion.   I don’t want you all looking at the camera in every single photograph.  Sure, we will get a few of those, but I want to give you photographs that tell a story.  Photographs with me mean I want you to play and laugh with your children.  I want you to act a little silly.  I want you to be so relaxed and for your kids to actually have fun during our session.  I’m fully letting go and want you to do the same.  No stress photography sessions.  I know…a really crazy concept, right?  2014 is the year I am totally letting go of all reservations and expectations and really going to just be free during our photo sessions….free to truly just fly by the seat of my pants, so to speak, in the most amazing and beautiful way and I would like you to do the same.  Are you ready to be crazy with your kids and allow me to capture that?  I mean, isn’t this what life is about?  I mean, if we can’t really enjoy ourselves with our children, then….well, we are really missing out on the absolute, most fantastic moments of our lives.  I truly believe that.   And together we can create images such as this.  I can’t wait to show you more images from this session, but for now….just this one that I love so very much.

This was my first outdoor family session of 2014.  What a way to start the year, eh?  <3 <3 <3

Houston Family Photographers

The color image is of course a classic, clean edit…but I thought this one also looked amazing as a black and white…with a little tint, which I very rarely do, but thought so fitting for this particular photograph.  And for the b&w, I also cropped it a bit so you can really see how an images can have a totally different feel with just a simple crop and color shift.  What do you think?  Yep, large canvas…exactly what I was thinking.  hehe
