Newborn Photographers Houston Texas
As one of the Newborn Photographers Houston Texas, most every newborn photo session I’ve done has been indoors. Mostly because it’s either just too darn hot out, or it’s too cold or there are mosquitoes, or rain, etc. And since babies come year round, it is often just easier to have newborn pictures done indoors. However, recently I really was itching to do a newborn session outdoors…and in a more unconventional location. I was thrilled when this sweet momma said she was willing to have her baby boy’s newborn photography session outside. Upon arrival to our location, it was actually sprinkling outside and I was quite nervous if we would be able to do it. I can’t even begin to tell you how cool this family is and they were willing to just go for it, mist and all. Lucky for all, shortly after we began, the rain subsided and actually the weather ended up being so very pleasant out. Not too hot, not too cold, no rain and no bugs! YAY! I’m so pleased with these images and would love to do more outdoor newborn photos. So if you might want to have one, please be sure to mention it when contacting me!
Family Photographer Woodlands: newborn, baby, child photography in Houston, The Heights, The Woodlands
As an adopted child myself, it means even more to get to celebrate with parents who have grown their families through adoption.
This is my second time to photograph this adorable family of five. They were due for some photos since the last session with them was when baby sister was literally just a baby. <3 I’m so thankful clients will oblige to my craziness during sessions. If you are looking for photographs of your family that scream happiness and joy, then pretty much I’m your gal. And you can’t be turned off by ‘funny’ faces or everyone not looking at the camera for every shot, because my completed galleries are much more diverse. I want you to have a true ‘collection’ of images. I want my clients to look back years from now with their children and feel the photographs truly showcase and celebrate everyone’s personality. Let’s be clear, my style of photography is not for everyone. And that’s totally okay! Choosing the right photographer for your family is so important. Looking through a photographers portfolio and making sure before you book that the photographer work is something you like is so important. I’d much rather someone not book me than to book me with the impression I will offer completely different kinds of images than what my portfolio shows.
Houston Family Photographer: newborn, baby, child, & underwater photography in Houston, The Heights, West University, The Woodlands
When I think about being a Houston Family Photographer, I often get just a wee bit sentimental. While I may have lost count quite some time ago the number of families I’ve had the opportunity to photograph, it will never change how attached I feel to many of my clients. This dear, sweet family is just one of those! I had to privilege to meet this crew when momma was pregnant with baby sister. We met at a local park in Houston which offered us more of a ‘forest’ look. I remember this gorgeous momma wearing this amazing red, fitted dress and then of course, big brother to be was looking so stinkin’ adorable. Dad was handsome, too. Anyways, fast forward a bit. I got to photograph them as a new family of four after baby sister was born and then got to see them again to document these most precious kiddos growing so fast! I enjoy not only seeing how they have physically changed, but also how their little personalities are really shining so bright.
For this session, we met at a new location for me which was suggested by mom. What a stellar spot it was. Not only offering a lot of green space, but also a bit of water feature and a hint of urban flare. 🙂 I’m always game for trying new locations for shoots. So if you have a spot you think will work, please, by all means, share with me. I really enjoy shooting at different places to keep my images fresh. Also, shooting at different locations offers my client’s the chance to have each of their galleries be more unique. Who doesn’t want to be a little more unique?
Okay..enough blabbing from me. How about this fab family!!?? Are they so cute or what? 😉
baby photographer Houston: newborn, baby, child, family & underwater photography in Houston, The Heights, West University, The Woodlands
I recall so vividly many of my sessions from years past. Maybe because I’m very much a visual person. I can remember meeting this sweet baby boy’s mommy and daddy a few years back to do their engagement photos. They were such sports as I had them in a bunch of wildflowers and then at this very cool, plush spot with a HUGE, very old oak tree of which was recently bulldozed for some apartments to be built. 🙁 That’s another rant for which I will just keep to myself. ha!
Anyway, this guys parents were quite smitten with each other as they were preparing for their wedding at Disneyland in California. Such fun, right? Well, let’s fast forward a few years and they recently welcomed this bundle of joy into their lives. I was thrilled when Mr. K’s momma reached out to me for his 100 day photographs. Is he such a handsome guy or what? <3
As you can see, for these milestone sessions, I keep to my normal ‘simple’ setup. As a baby photographer Houston, I prefer to focus on the baby. I do not use a bunch of props which I personally feel distract from the subject. For me, your precious little ones have an abundance of beauty that will ensure the photographs shine. We don’t need fancy backdrops or expensive clothes. Just your most lovely little one is just perfect on their own, don’t you think?
The Woodlands Family Photographer: newborn, baby, child, family & underwater photography in Houston, The Heights, West University, The Woodlands
One thing I can tell you as a Woodlands Family Photographer is while I do prefer to shoot right at sunrise or sunset, because quite frankly, it’s the easiest to shoot in, the fact is that many times that is just not feasible for my clients. Over the years, I have embraced different times of the day for shooting. Many times it’s not just a matter of availability for myself and my Woodlands family photographer client. Sometimes it’s a matter of what time of day will the child or children be at their best, mood wise. I would much prefer a more happy child than the “best light”. Plus, the longer I do this then more I feel like there is not really the best light because so much of what is best is simply a matter of personal preference. I have clients who specifically ask for lots of sunlight in their photo gallery. So whose to really say what light is “best”. While I do have to get more creative with shooting locations, I make it work as long as we have at least a little diffusing of light. Maybe that is in the form of trees or a building. What I’ve learned over time shooting at different times of day is that I now PREFER to mix up lighting. I personally don’t want every one of my sessions to look the exact same. For me, it gets a little too monotonous and borderline boring. Yes! I most certainly want to keep a consistent overall look and feel to my portfolio of client’s family photos, I do celebrate some diversity. Such was the case for this session. There was a spot where the light was a bit more ‘crazy’ as some could say. But I wanted to use the spot and do a few different kinds of photographs.
By the end of our session this day, sunset had come and we were able to also get a wonderful collection of images in a different light. I hope you can spot the difference. They are both very unique and special in their own way. I love them both for different reasons. When looking through my portfolio, be sure to note which images you prefer or if you like both. It’s so helpful when booking your family photo session with me to relay what you like the best. This way we can be on the same page to ensure your ultimate happiness with the final product. Many of my clients are open to basically anything, which is so fantastic because it offers me the opportunity to really just have fun and create the most specialized photos for them!
