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 loved this from Julie Anderson….

“Once there were two women who never knew each other; One you do not remember, the other you call Mother
Two different lives shaped to make you one; One became your guiding star, the other became your sun
The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it; The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name;One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears; One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried you tears
One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do;  The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.
Now, which of these two women, Are you the product of?;  Both, my darling, Both, Just two different types of love.”

The adoption of a child is such a very special time.  It is such an honor and privilege to be able to captures a few families each year in the early days of welcoming a new family member into their hearts and home.  What joy abounds!

There are so many great photos from this session I want to share.  So many that I will break them into two or three posts.  These two sisters were nothing short of hilarious.  Two polar opposite personalities and yet such a strong bond and love for each other.  It was pretty fun to have them together in the pool.  We focused mostly on individual photos, believe it or not, considering how many we got of them together.  They were so incredibly easy to photograph.  Each very comfortable in the water which is required for these sessions, I might add.  Safety first!  Anyway, big sister is on the swim team and boy did she give me a show with her amazing swimming skills.  You will see that in another post.  Little sister most certainly did not disappoint.  She was all too happy to give me some really good shots too!

We shall begin the showcase of these images with a few of my favorites of both girls together.  Getting one participant to do as you say can be challenging enough, especially in the swimming pool.  However, to get two kiddos to sort of simultaneously  do as you direct them too, well, can be a real challenge and nearly impossible.  These two performed, I would say, well above average.  What do you think?

Extended Family Portrait Photographer Houston Texas is just another hat that I wear.  It’s great to have sessions that include kids and grandparents!  I really try to capture them as authentically as possible, while also getting some traditional photos as well because most grandmas appreciate those the most.

And what an honor to be hired by a fellow photographer.  I get giddy every single time it happens.  This photographer’s sister was in from service for only about a week.  She likely will not be back again for 2 years.  I can’t think of a better reason for some family photos, right?  In just two years, how these two little ones will change so very much.  We had so much fun during this session and I know we captured some great memories!

My schedule is nearly entirely full for the year.  If you are even remotely interested in booking a photo session with me this year, please do not delay in contacting me.

I suppose I’m a lot of things and an In Hospital Baby Photographer in Houston, TX is just one of the hats that I wear.  I’ve not had the opportunity to photograph many sets of multiples in my business.  So when this momma contacted me a while back, I was super pumped about our Fresh 48 hospital session, which takes place within 48 hours of your baby or babies being born.  This new mom and dad were clearly over the moon in love with these babies.  What a lovely time we had this beautiful afternoon at Texas Children’s Hospital, where these two had been born only the day before.  And how about this amazing gown that this momma purchased off of Etsy.  One of the cutest I’ve seen so far!  Makes you want to have another baby just so you can look this adorable, right?  ha!

Just an idea, but these sessions would be such a great gift for a friend or family member.  They are pretty ‘no fuss’ sessions.  I just come and snap some photos…making sure that everyone looks their best, even in a hospital room.  I know, it seems kinda odd to many.  Professional photography at the hospital, that is.  But as you can see from this collection of photographs, it can be a really lovely spot.  I suppose it’s because of the memories that have just been made.  The newness of life and joy beyond measure just beams from such places.  So why not the hospital room?  Why not a Fresh 48 newborn session?  Okay…I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves.

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?
