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. ;-)

If you saw the post I posted a few days ago (which is just below this post actually) you may have been thinking the new ‘me’ was all about dark, dramatic black and white photographs now…but as I mentioned in that very post…that is so far from the case.  And while I am going to break outside my mold for a few images here and there, please take note that my very first love is and will always be full color, clean edited images…the same images that make up most of my site here.  ;-)  Anyways….does this session reflect fun and emotion??  I hope so!So you take a super sweet momma….two angelically happy daughters…(no joking) and then one amazingly accommodating and fun dad….and not only to you have the perfect recipe for a great session, but also sends the photographer…that would be me…hehe…over the moon with happiness for such an easy family to photograph.  Now look…don’t worry if you don’t consider your children ‘angelic’.  hehe  I can (and have) worked with a variety of personalities…from the super serious…to the super silly.  Rest assured, we can and will still get the most beautiful images of your family! I promise!  Ask anyone…my patience level is extremely high.  Plus, I think every child has an ‘angel’ side…and I’ll do my very best to find it and capture it!! ;-)

finding my way these days…just truly going with my gut and flying by the seat of my pants…hehe

Don’t worry…I’m not going off the deep end or anything, but I do feel this new creative freedom…

not sure where it has come from, but it is here and I’m excited to through in a curve ball now and then…

and this would be one of them…

I think it is pretty cool and that’s all that matters really.

Gotta go outside the lines sometimes, right? ;-)

It is hard to believe it has been 7 months since you came into our lives.  It only took me a month to actually get these posted, as these are photos of our sweet boy at 6 months old.  ;-)  Contrary to what many will believe, I actually am not a photo fanatic when it comes to our child.  Not that there is anything wrong with going overboard on your kid’s photos…I mean, I am the first to say that most families do not have enough ‘quality’ photos of their children as they grow.  But I can tell you that even though I am not taking photos everyday of him…I have gone a few weeks with no pics at all…I know, tragic, right?  For me, I don’t think so at all.  I want my child to know me as mom and not this crazy person always taking his photos.  I want to enjoy our moments and savor them without constantly having to get a photo or to post on Facebook or Instagram every single thing we are doing as a family.  Yes, there will be plenty of photographs of this little guy…I mean, look at him. hehe  I make sure that at least once a month we get a good solid milestone session in…and you better believe that we, as a family are in many photos with him because I think that is important, but most importantly, I just want to soak as much of this sweet baby in as I can because before I know it, he won’t be little…he will be all grown up and I don’t want to have any regrets spending quality time with him and his daddy.  So, I’m taking a few step back these days…trying to stay offline more…not be such a workaholic, photoholic or internet junkie, which is really hard, I’m not going to lie, but it’s about priorities, right?

Happy 6 Months our Baby Buglet!

Yes, he has strawberry hair.  <3

What a precious little guy! Love his red hair :)

Lynnsey Dohmen

Love his little wiggly toes and that red hair! Such a cutie.

Alison Rowe

Amy he is awesome! These are all wonderful! So envious of that lovely red hair! I was hoping for a red-headed baby, but no such luck!

This is actually an image I took over two years ago.  I loved this session so much.  Since then, I’ve photographed a number of families in their living rooms, bedrooms and such.  As you likely know if you’ve been around a while, I love photographing families in their homes.  I wanted to kick off the new year by offering what I am calling ‘Sofa Sessions’ and I know what many will be thinking….a session in a field on some vintage sofa.  Many of you will know the very photographs I am talking about because they have been all the craze the last few years for family photographs.  I never did them because hauling a big sofa onsite somewhere was quite frankly too much work. hehe

Anyways…these are NOT the sessions I am talking about!  These are photographs in your house…on your sofa….with your kiddos.  These are super quick, very fluid sessions that literally last 15 minutes.  I will be setting the timer, no joke.  I expect these to be fast, fun, lively sessions so just be ready mom and dad.  ;-)  Or these would actually be a great session for mommy & me photos, which are photographs of just mom and the kiddos.

Let me tell you that you do not have to have a fancy sofa or a Pottery Barn living room for these photographs to be beautiful.  You leave that to me.  :-D  Trust me, you will love these images!!  I have some new tricks up my sleeve for this year to enhance all in home sessions!  I can’t wait to try them out!

Contact me and let’s talk about a Sofa Session for your family this season!

If I still lived in the area I would totally book one of these!

If only my sofa were the size of this one, we would do this. This family is precious. Love the little guys!

Massiel

Love the light in this photo!

I am told that the transition from one child to two children is quite a challenge.  I would not know, as we only have one child…hehe.  ;-)  Then many will say that the transition from two kiddos to three is really not a big deal….BUT then there is an entirely other group that will say the most challenging is indeed the two to three….

Just do a little Google search on your own one day.  It is baffling how many articles are written about such things.

I guess, in the end, it really depends on your family and such which transition will be easier.  One thing that most everyone will agree on (at least those that I know) have said that once you have three children, then you can add as many more as your hearts desire and it is easy breezy.  Well, I don’t know if I am buying completely stress free (ha!) but rest assured that no matter how many children you decide to have in your family….children are the most precious little creatures and totally worth all the sacrifice and challenges.  <3

As you can guess, this sweet family just went from two amazing little girls to the addition of one wonderful baby boy.  Lots of love going around these parts. ;-)

This is part two of this cutie’s birthday session we did recently.  Part one is just a few pages back on my blog.  Check it out if you have time.  He has the most precious outfit, thanks to his fashionable mommy.  So, this mom wanted a few photos with her baby boy.  I mean, do you blame her?  Look at this cutie patootie and look at this gorgeous momma! ;-)  We did most of his session inside, but got just a couple of outdoor photos as we wrapped things up.  Such a lovely family and thrilled I’ve had the chance to photograph them twice now!  YAY!  Here’s to many more beautiful photographs with you guys!!  <3

Photographs with the grands….makes my heart melt.  I thought this images would be a great addition to a wall….maybe an entry hall where grandma will smile every time she comes in the door.;-)

This is an example of a 20X24 framed photograph, which sounds really big, but once on even a mid sized wall space, it doesn’t look so big, right?  I think it is such a lovely compliment to an entryway.

There are so many wonderful ways to display photographs showcased here on my site shown here and also I have an entire board on Pinterest I started a while back with even more ideas!  Be sure to check it out here!

20×24 is such a great size for a treasured family photo. This is the size of our family portrait in the living room, and it looks great!

Meredith Janisch

I LOVE this idea! Priceless!!!

I love Grandma – grandkids pictures!

I’ve photographed this adorable fella since he was born.  If you’ve been around the blog a few times, I am sure you have seen his handsome face and this family a couple of times.  They have made the decision to move back into town soon (they live in the suburbs of Houston now) so we thought it fitting to have their holiday session this year inside their home…the only home their son has known.  We jokingly called it a sort of ‘send off’ to this home..sniff, sniff.  ;-)  And this included a few shots with their glorious Christmas tree.

But this is life, right?  I think most folks end up moving at least a few times in their children’s lives these days.  Back in the day, it was not as common, but now, much more so.  Their home has always been a great place to shoot their sessions…we’ve had a few inside the first year of his life, but I must admit, the idea of a new home, for me, sounds so exciting!  A new and different playground for more family photos.  hehe.

It was such lovely weather the day of this session.  It was overcast, but so bright outside and the temp was just perfect.  These days it’s hard to come by such comfortable days in Houston, Texas.  This momma wanted mostly photos of her children, but she got in on a few too, which I loved.  We met at this most adorable historic park near downtown Houston named the Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park.  If you like a bit of local history, I highly recommend.  They let you call this phone number and you can ‘tour’ the parksite at your leisure while listening to the info over your phone.  It is pretty cool.  ;-)  Anyways, you can check out their site here for more info.
