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. ;-)

It’s been a while since I showed you a wall display idea. These beautiful images are from a recent family session I did.  Love. Love. Love.

Anyways….I’m going to try and start showing a awl display idea one once a week.  I loved this one which showcases two 16X24 canvases and two 10×20 canvases, in-between.

What do you think?

I will say it until I’m blue in the face that these days I embrace and celebrate alert, awake newborn babies.  I know many photographers will cringe when I say this.  I get it.  I was there a few years ago.  The idea of photographing an bright eyed newborn…with there wild yoga posing as we will call it..hehe…and the unlikeliness of any direct eye contact….is well, downright scary to most.  However, especially since having our son, I have realized a few things.

1.  Newborns look totally different when they are sleeping and when they are awake.  I’d be willing to say that often times you would not even recognize the baby to be the same baby if I showed you a sleeping baby photo and an awake one.  They look so very different.  I noticed this very early on with our son.

2.  Photographing a sleeping baby is in many ways much easier than photographing a baby that is doing yoga moves.  It would be easier for an average joe to get some pretty decent photos of their baby sleeping with let’s say their iPhone…I know, blasphemy.  ha!  In no way am I saying that there is anything that can replace a professional photograph or by any way devaluing the work of a professional newborn photographer, I am most certainly not.  There is no comparison.  I’m just saying that catching a photograph in motion is often times more of a challenge for a non professional.  And I love a good challenge!  So bring on those funny newborn faces.  ;-) I’m afraid I’m getting tomatoes thrown at me now, I am sure (by other photographers)…so I will just move on. hehe

3.  While I agree that sleepy pics are amazing…they are.  I will most certainly get them when I can.  I surely got a few of our little buggie when he was younger, I think it is way more fun to capture the sort of funny faces that showcase personality.  It is amazing how a newborn already has a personality, but indeed they do!  Sure, most of their personality is serious…fussy…and a little dazed looking at times, hahahaha, but there are also moments of joy, humor and uniqueness that appears when you least expect it.  And the coolest moments of all are the ones where you look at that brand spankin’ new baby and see yourself in them or you see your spouse in them!  I would venture to say that happens the most when they are awake.  Now those are some of the captures I want you to have.

So without further adieu….the real (and beautiful) faces of a newborn baby….who oh, by the way, simply refused to turn his head any direction other than the right.  hehe  ;-)

Not sure what I love most about this pic….the open mouth kiss or the fact that little sister was clearly expecting it to be hers. hehe

Real life family photos.  Catching the memories that really just happen.

If you want some of your own, message me!  ;-)

It was such a fantastic day in Houston, Texas for family photos.  The sun was shining…there was a fantastic light breeze…and the overall temperature outside was just perfection.   I truly could not have wished for a better day for family photos!

This is part two of an extended family session I did recently.  This sweet momma wanted some photos of her parents and her sister with her and her family, which includes now her most precious newest addition, a baby girl.  Part one of our session were an assortment of photos with everyone, but then I made sure to get an assortment of just her immediate family, per her request.

I am happy to create a personal session with a collection of images just for you.  :-)

As for this beautiful family, I am so happy to have met you and photographed you this season!

Is this crew lovely or what!!!??  ;-)
