Houston Underwater Kids Photographer: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands

I’m a wee bit late posting so many sessions.  What’s new? ha!  It’s actually pretty fun when I get to look at sessions from the not to distant past.  I get to experience them like they are new again.  It’s likely similar to how my clients feel when they see their images over the course of time.  It makes me think of our son and now I can put certain toys away for a while, then bring them back out months later and how excited he is for them as if they are brand new.  You have likely experienced this with your kids too.  <3

This is one of my favorite clients.  Maybe it’s because I’ve know her and her wonderful parents since she was only a couple weeks old. How the time flies.  She is so big now and full of so much personality and sweetness! She’s also a little fish in the water.  It was so exciting to see her underwater.  She is so cute!! Love this gal!

Houston Child Photographer: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands

As a Houston Child Photographer, I’ve been privileged to get to know kiddos as they grow.  It’s so much fun to see how much they change over the years.  While I love shooting families…by far, my most favorite part of my job, I do very much love having photo sessions where I give all my attention to just one child.  It is so much fun to just focus fully on my one subject.  There are many benefits to your child having a birthday session by themselves.  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can replace family photos with everyone together catching the most amazing love and joy that can only come between parents and children.  But when I can focus on one subject the entire time, it is certain to really get not only many faces of you child, but also be able to capture the full realm of their personality.  And isn’t that the whole point of investing in photos of our families and kids?  To be able to look back years from now and see them JUST AS THEY WERE!  That is what I want to offer my clients.  Beautiful, classic photographs of your children that truly represent who they are.  I don’t want to ‘create’ an image of your family that is not authentic.  Furthermore, as you can see in my portfolio, I don’t use props or ‘sets’.  For me, it just distracts from my subjects.  Just personal preference, of course.  So if you are like me and want some fun, natural images of your family, please contact me and I’d love to chat with you.  😉

Houston Texas Family Photography: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands

I’m so biased about this family! I adore these kids so much.  Mostly because their mom and I have actually become dear friends over the years.  I’ve had the glorious opportunity to photograph them so many times I’ve lost count.  Watching these precious little people grow has just been so sweet.  Seeing them basically become little adults..hehe…and witnessing their personalities become so unique.

We had such fun during this shoot.  This was a little secret spot that this momma told me about.  Mom loves all things modern, so this spot was oh so very fitting.  And in perfect form for this family, they were dressed to perfection.

Let’s just talk for a second about clothes for your session. First and foremost, I want my clients to be dressed in their own clothes.  For the style of photography I do, this is just the best option.  For me, I want you and your family to look like themselves and to be themselves during our photo shoot!  Also, coordinating and not ‘matching’ is ideal…I mean, unless you are twins, which is cool for occasional matching.  😉  I mean, would you go out to dinner with your kids and everyone be wearing the same thing?  I doubt it unless it was for Halloween or a joke. ha!  If you need direction for what to wear for a photo shoot, I have lots of ideas here.   Be sure to check it out!

Newborn Photographers Houston Texas

As one of the Newborn Photographers Houston Texas, most every newborn photo session I’ve done has been indoors.  Mostly because it’s either just too darn hot out, or it’s too cold or there are mosquitoes, or rain, etc.  And since babies come year round, it is often just easier to have newborn pictures done indoors.  However, recently I really was itching to do a newborn session outdoors…and in a more unconventional location.  I was thrilled when this sweet momma said she was willing to have her baby boy’s newborn photography session outside.  Upon arrival to our location, it was actually sprinkling outside and I was quite nervous if we would be able to do it.  I can’t even begin to tell you how cool this family is and they were willing to just go for it, mist and all.  Lucky for all, shortly after we began, the rain subsided and actually the weather ended up being so very pleasant out.  Not too hot, not too cold, no rain and no bugs!  YAY!  I’m so pleased with these images and would love to do more outdoor newborn photos.  So if you might want to have one, please be sure to mention it when contacting me!

Family Photographer Woodlands: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands

As an adopted child myself, it means even more to get to celebrate with parents who have grown their families through adoption.

This is my second time to photograph this adorable family of five.  They were due for some photos since the last session with them was when baby sister was literally just a baby.  <3  I’m so thankful clients will oblige to my craziness during sessions.  If you are looking for photographs of your family that scream happiness and joy, then pretty much I’m your gal.  And you can’t be turned off by ‘funny’ faces or everyone not looking at the camera for every shot, because my completed galleries are much more diverse.  I want you to have a true ‘collection’ of images.  I want my clients to look back years from now with their children and feel the photographs truly showcase and celebrate everyone’s personality.  Let’s be clear, my style of photography is not for everyone.  And that’s totally okay!  Choosing the right photographer for your family is so important.  Looking through a photographers portfolio and making sure before you book that the photographer work is something you like is so important.  I’d much rather someone not book me than to book me with the impression I will offer completely different kinds of images than what my portfolio shows.

 So enough business rambling from me. ha! How about this gorgeous family!  Had such a blast with them again!
