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! 😉

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

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!

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.  😉

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!
