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. ;-)

I was so excited to have the opportunity to photograph this photographer and her family recently on the beach in Galveston, Texas.  This crew was a lively bunch, so why not have them in front of Pleasure Pier for their session.  I wanted these images to be fun, happy and colorful….with lots of sunshine.  I am so very pleased at how they turned out.  Shooting in full sun is something that I would have never even attempted a few years ago. However, I really believe that for certain sessions…ones that fit full sun, like the beach, can be so amazing in the bright rays of the sun.  I mean, when you think of the beach, you think of sunshine right?  I personally feel like it gives the photographs a completely different feel.  Super warm and they just scream summertime, don’t you think?

Okay. So I’m just a few months behind on posting these pics.  Better late than never right?  ha!

This is my baby sister.  I must tell you that on this particular day, on a whim, we decided to do maternity photographs.  It was a very bright sunny day, but we only had a very short amount of time and so we just worked with the yummy, crazy bright light.  We chose this tiny little park in my hometown for the session.  I wanted some pics of her on the swing and also knew I wanted to incorporate this old, deserted building just behind the park.

Funny little story here.  We were at my sister’s house, rummaging (literally) through her closet trying to find what we wanted her to wear.  We literally picked out these outfits in about 5 minutes.  Truth be known, when I pulled this red polkadot dress, my sister looked at me like I had completely lost my mind.  Not only was the dress not maternity, it was pretty fitted on my sister before she was pregnant.  However, I have a decent eye when it comes to such things and I had a good feeling that this little dress was going to be just perfect for the fun, flirty pics I had in mind.  Admittedly, even as my sister was changing into this dress in the car, she had to fully trust me when I told her it was a go and that she looked so adorable.  Not being able to see herself in the dress was very hard, but she had faith in me that I would not let her look anything other than her best.

The first dress is a great style of dress for maternity photographs.  It’s so classic and the wrap style is extremely flattering to many body shapes during pregnancy.  If you are considering maternity photos, for sure consider such a dress style.

The polkadot dress, well, it’s certainly not for everyone.  It is short and a little revealing, but for this little series, it was just perfect, don’t you think?  :-)

Sure, I love taking photos.  There is no denying that.  I truly love it so very…VERY much.  I also very much love little people.  I enjoy meeting them.  I enjoy getting to know them during our session.  I love the challenge of  capturing the true personalities of children.  To give mommas a collection of photographs that truly reflect who their child is at this moment of life.  It is why I have chosen this path for this season of my life.

But also what is just icing on the cake, is when I get the opportunity to really get to know mommas.  I am a bit biased lately to meet mommies that have a child around the same age as our son.  It is just extra fun to talk and share stories of our children at this age, whatever age that is at the time.  Such was the case with this sweet momma who took the time to share with me her love of cooking and food, as well as their recent adventure in finding foods that her daughter will eat.  It was as if she were reading my mind.  I love food and cooking…and these days coming up with meals for our little one has been a bit of a challenge.  However, after chatting with this mommy, I was so encouraged and left with a plethora of ideas.  So thankful to be able to share not only photography, but life with other families.

What a joy to have the privilege of being chosen by other photographers to capture important milestones for them.  It’s really a very exciting thing for me.  Certainly, I highly value all of my customers, but when one of your (very talented) colleagues hire you, it has a very special meaning.  I was so happy to have been there for this mommy and her family only a day after their precious daughter arrived.

These are a Fresh 48 session, which is a session of photographs taken within 48 hours of your baby being born. A Fresh 48 session is typically done at the hospital, unless your baby is born at home or a birth center, of which we can make special arrangements for such a session.  I know that likely many of you would think that photographs in a tiny hospital room could not turn out very well.  However, if done well, photographs in a hospital room can be so lovely.  If you would like to capture the newness of your new baby or are interested in possibly gifting such a session to a family, please contact me for more details.  These are wonderful memories to have captured since babies change so much even within the first week of life.  These sessions are really great for families who are not quite interested in full out birth photography and not necessarily interested in a traditional newborn session.

The summer has come and gone.  I had such a blast with a handful of clients who chose me to capture their kiddo in the pool just swimming and playing around.  I am still booking these sessions.  We live in Texas and the pool is heated, so if you’d like one of these sessions, I have a few spots still open for Sept. & Oct.  Then, underwater photo sessions will be on hiatus until April 2015.

Here are just a few from Mr. C’s session I recently did.  So. Much. Fun.  :-)

There are lots more underwater photos from sessions on my Facebook page.  I do plan to post them all to the blog, too, but I’m just a wee bit behind on that goal.  ;-)
