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

I can recall like it was yesterday meeting this momma for the first time when we met to discuss me photographing the birth of her daughter.  This is her daughter now.  Time flies for sure.  I recall getting the call as I was on a walk with a friend that Mrs. S was delivering her sweet baby #2 and being so excited to be there to photograph the event.  What I found super fabulous with this momma was she was so comfortable and laid back at her birth.  It was a glorious day.  At that time, I was actually pregnant with our son (only about 13 or so weeks at the time) which made photographing this birth so extra special.  This momma also is super cool because she and I share in many of our parenting ways.  It is so refreshing to get to know moms like Mrs. S who are so genuinely kind.  Well, fast forward a couple of years as my son is now three and look at this beautiful family of four.  The best thing about this most lovely family is that they are not afraid to have fun during our sessions.  It’s all smiles as you can see! Even dad doesn’t mind being completely silly with his kiddos.

Just a reminder to stay tuned for the ‘Photos with Santa’ information which will go public sometime in September.  I will be posting the details here on my blog and also on my Facebook page here.  For now, the dates of the Santa pics will be Saturday, Dec. 3d and Saturday, Dec. 10th.  It is possible I will open up one day in November as well, but not sure when that will be yet.

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

As a family photographer Houston TX, I get to meet some really great folks.  Really, such wonderful families that share their time and selves with me.  Does my heart good to witness moms and dads enjoying their kiddos.  Trust me, I’m aware that life is not always a bed of roses and parenthood is hard and life is messy.

But because there is also such tremendous joy and love that abounds between parent and child, I want to capture that for you!

Just as is the case with most sessions of families I’ve not met before, the kids are often times a little shy and hesitant with me.  Rest assured, they come around eventually because I have persistence like no other and the patience of a saint.  😉 I think it funny how in this second image, this dear baby girl is like, who are you and giving me the ‘I am just not sure about you’ look.   Then, the final image in the end, well, you can clearly see she came around.  They always do.

By the way, I’m already booking up for Holiday 2016 photo sessions, so if you want to snag a session with me this year, please don’t delay in contacting me.  Thank you!

“Without you there would be no me.
I am everything reflected in your eyes.
I am everything approved by your smile.
I am everything born of your guidance.
I am me only because of you.”

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

Just another day in the life of a Baby Boy Photographer.  Certainly, I shoot baby girls too along with moms, dads, grandparents, etc.  As you can see in my portfolio, the vast majority of what I shoot are families.  While most of my clients have children under the age of about 12 or so, I welcome the opportunity to photograph families with older children as well.

This momma wanted to document this handsome fella in his bedroom before they were to move to be closer to their family in another state. It was such fun seeing all the unique faces of this sweet boy.  I really try to get a variety of shots when photographing children.  It seems like they have so much personality even at such a young age.  What’s really fantastic is when I get a very special ‘look’ or funny face which the child shows to their parents frequently or not so frequently for that matter.  But a certain look that is meaningful.  So glad this momma was pleased with the images we got.  I’m sad I will not be seeing them again, but wish them the best getting settled in their new city.

+++++++

Just a reminder that I am currently booking for the Fall of 2016.  I know, crazy how the season sneaks upon us so quickly.  If you are interested in booking, please contact me now to get your pick of available dates.  No joke y’all.  <3

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

As a Houston TX Family Newborn Photographer, I get to meet many new families with fresh arrivals.  However, what’s the absolute most satisfying part of my job is that I get to see families grow over the years as they add little people.  This family is no exception.  I’ve lost count of the photos I’ve taken of this very pretty family.  Over the years this momma and I have had so many lovely chats that each time I see them, my heart is so full.  What is so fab about the families I get to photograph are so darn cool just about everything! This makes it so much more awesome when I get to photograph them because they trust me to just do my thing.  <3

I want all of my photo sessions to really feel so natural and as genuine as can be conceding these are ‘portaits’.  A session with me means that I will do everything I can to make sure everyone looks their best in the photos by guiding everyone, but then allowing a lot of fluidity as well.  The best way to sum it up is orchestrated chaos.  I direct a little, but then I leave room for spontaneity and some surprise.  And sometimes I get lots of surprises and I celebrate that! 😉

I know what you are thinking right now.  Wow, look at the amazing images and gorgeous family…but why are they wearing winter clothes? ha!  The reason is that this session was back from the cooler months. Hard to imagine those cooler months now that we are in the most blistering summer heat.  Anyone else ready for Fall?  As much as I do enjoy summer for a variety of reasons, mostly because of all the underwater kids photo session I get to do, I long for Fall.  I suppose it’s my favorite season.  Then Spring is lovely, minus all the pollen. hehe. I’m posting today because as crazy as it sounds, the business of the the Fall season will be hear before we know it and it’s not too soon to be thinking about your family photo session.  It is important to note that I will have even fewer options for Fall sessions this coming year because I will be offering ‘Photos with Santa’ extra days.  So if you are thinking you might want a family photo session this Fall, it might not be a bad idea to contact me now as crazy as that seems to get first dibs of dates.

I do not ever offer family and/or child portrait specials or discounted sessions ever, so if you’d like to book, be sure to review my pricing/collections here.  It’s not too soon to be dreaming of your kiddos in adorable cardigan sweaters and you in that gorgeous wool sweater.  Speaking of what to wear for photos, I have a handful of posts on my blog devoted to such.  If you would like to see some great ideas on how to coordinate clothing for a family photoshoot, be sure to check those out here.  There is also a Pinterest board I’ve created that has some wonderful options too.  That can be found here.  Or if you are feeling really ambitions, just search on Pinterest something like ‘photoshoot clothing options’ or ‘family photo session clothes idea’, etc. and you will likely find an abyss of options.  That may be a good or a bad thing…too many options.  ha! Just remember, it’s best if everyone looks themselves.  Where clothing you would really wear out in public. 😉  My clients really do a great job with picking out clothes for their sessions.  Just take a look at this well dressed family!  😉 Such a wonderful example of what to wear!
