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. ;-)

Hospital Newborn Photographs with Video

I never owned a video camera.  I mean, I’m a photographer, not a videographer.  HA!  I’ve always had a thing for pictures not video.  Well, until I got pregnant….blah…blah…blah.  Then….two things happened in those first few months of being pregnant.  First, a friend of mine who is a wedding videographer and photographer showed me this sweet video he took of his friend’s baby years ago.  I don’t even recall why he showed me the video….but I am so glad he did!  I found myself watching the video over and over.  It was just so lovely…and he had just been playing around.  I began to think….hmmm…I think I want a video camera for when the baby comes.  Sure, photographs will still be our primary source of memory keeping, but I know that I will want some video…and not just phone video.  Then the 2nd important thing happened.  While photographing a birth, I was handed the family’s video camera to also use as I desired, which I did.  Long story, short…I videoed part of the actual birth and also shot some video after the birth.  And I will admit, that juggling both a video camera AND a regular camera during a ‘you don’t get any 2nd chances for a shot’  birth is much more challenging than I want to deal with on a regular basis.  I will (at least for now) keep birth photography…just that: Birth Photography.  Then…this REALLY got me thinking…

I’ve been shooting births for over three years now.  I know not everyone is interested in full out birth pictures…I get it.  Furthermore, there are lots of people who are not really interested in the traditional, professional newborn photos.  I’ve been offering Fresh 48 Sessions for a while which are photographs taken after the baby is born (within 48 hours of birth) at the hospital, but have not had many takers on these sessions to my surprise.  So I thought I would try to ‘jazz up’ these sessions a bit.  Why not use my new video camera to incorporate video with photographs with these sessions.  It’s nothing new or innovative really.  There are a couple of photographers out there who have been offering similar for a while….but in the Houston area, I don’t know of anyone offering these sorts of combo sessions in a hospital setting.  So, I decided to give it a try.  I’m calling these sessions “Birth Story Sessions: photograph & video narrative of your baby’s arrival” for now until I can come up with some really creative, crafty name for them.  I am still offering traditional “Fresh 48 Sessions” for those who simply want photographs only.:-)

This entire idea really came at the worst possible time….I was nearing the end of my pregnancy when I decided to go for it and offer this new type of session.  I know…I am crazy like that.  I knew it was now or never.  If I didn’t just go for it, I might never actually do it.  So I had to work fast.  hehe.  I had to get the ball rolling so that as soon as I was off maternity leave, I could start offering these sessions.

I shot this first birth story when I was basically almost 9 months pregnant.  And the 2nd one I shot only two weeks before our little buglet made his entrance into this world.  I know, I told you I was crazy. HA!  It’s only now that my world is settling down a bit, that I am so excited to announce these session offerings.

I’ve shot only two of these in hospital sessions so please don’t judge too harshly my video skills…I still need lots of practice.  However, I think you will get the idea from these two Birth Story Sessions.  For now, I am ONLY offering these combo video/photography sessions at the hospital (or at home ONLY if your baby was born at home) after your baby has been born.

I am not offering any video sessions at home or for older babies/children or families just yet.  I will likely offer those at the beginning of 2014, but only for families with babies age three months to a year old, but not yet walking.  I will be doing a model call for a few of these sessions so stay tuned and maybe your family could be chosen for a freebie.  <3

Birth Story Sessions will include:

-Both include at least a 5 minute (downloadable) video with both video clips, narrative (audio) clips and photographs taken from our session

(however, I expect the average video will be closer to 8-10 minutes in length)

-at least 12 full resolution images (hand edited) with print release from the session

-up to 1 hour allotted for session

You will notice that the first video does not have narrative clips added.  It simply has music added.  However, you will see that the second video does have some narrative from the parents added into the video.   You can choose to add narrative or not.  I actually love some narrative.  I think it adds a much more personal touch, but it’s whatever you prefer.  We discuss what you feel would be most meaningful to you to verbalize on your video.  I have lots of ideas on that…from recollections of the actual birth to how you chose your baby’s name….and so on.

Because I am still building my portfolio for these types of sessions, I am offering a big discount to the first 5 families who would like their own Birth Story Video.

Birth Story Video portfolio building price is $325.00

This is a rock bottom price for such a package, so please do not delay in contacting me well before your due date if you’d like to book one of these sessions. :-)

10 on 10 | Houston Family & Newborn Photographer

Becoming a big brother or sister is a very exciting thing….maybe if you are like 10.  But when you are two and a half, it takes you a while to warm up to this new little person who is consuming much of what used to be ‘your’ time with mom and dad.  Now all that attention that used to be only for you must now be shared and that is not so fun and exciting…at least not at first.  I’m not sure any amount of preparation can really prepare a child for such a change.  It’s not until the new arrival comes home that the reality hits and it can be very challenging for a while until the older sibling adjust.  And this is totally normal.  But more often than not…eventually with a little (or a lot) of patience…the older sibling will eventually come around and begin to actually find common ground with their new brother or sister.  So was just the case when I went to photograph this wonderful family who I’ve had the privilege of getting to know this last year.  Big sis was not having much…well, anything (ha!) to do with little brother.  We just wanted to get a few shots of them together.  Rest assured all sorts of patience along with some bribery proved unsuccessful.  And then, in a moment when most would have not even been paying much mind….one moment when we had pretty much concluded that we would not get any pics of the two children together….one moment….which was about a mere 60 seconds, there was a small glimmer of sisterly love that occurred.  The lighting may not have been perfect and maybe there were not any big smiles or anyone looking at the camera…but I captured the most beautiful moment and for that I am so grateful.  Sweet big sister touching her new sibling so tenderly.  Something so simple, yet so endearing.  These are the photographs I so enjoy taking and I know will be cherished for years and years to come. <3

I am part of a little photographer group called 10 on 10 where we share 10 images (I always tend to have a few more than that-ha!) that are memorable to us.  Please follow the circle to the next blog, leave a comment and show us all some LOVE!!

lovely family moments, did you use a remote shutter?

This is simply beautiful, but evenmoreso, the post is on point. Although they are obsessed with each other now, it took my two year old a little while to warm up to our newborn daughter, Abby.

Hannah Waters

What a sweet sibling moment!

I love the natural shots…the family is sharing a beautiful moment with one another and you captured each sweet detail. <3

Scrolled through your newborns – I think this one is my favorite :) The little girl with those eyes! Reminds me of my Addy, love them!

Sweet Beginnings | Houston Newborn Photographer

Yep…it’s our baby boy.  These were taken (by me) when he was 10 days old.  He just turned 12 weeks yesterday.  I am making a point to not be a complete crazy person with the photos…but about twice each week, I break out my ‘real’ camera to take some photos.  I try not to go hog wild.  HA!  I am very sensitive to him and his mood.  So, we will take photos until he’s like…’I’m done’…then I put the camera away.  Not stressing.  I mean, how many of the same exact pics can one person have, right?  I try to immediately delete duplicates.  I don’t want to have so many photos on my computer that are basically the same photo.  Trust me, it is hard…I mean REALLY hard to delete any photos of your child.  However, I am doing it.  I’m trying to go through and only keep the ones with different faces and ones that showcase different angles.  One day when I am like 70 (if I am blessed to live that long) I don’t want to have to ‘weed’ through thousands upon thousands of photographs.  Plus, who has all that extra storage? Although I am a few weeks behind, I am also making sure that the photos are very organized and named appropriately and in a consistent manor.  There is nothing more frustrating than not being to find certain photos from a certain age of your child right?  I am also trying to keep the cell phone pics to a minimum too.  Don’t get me wrong…there are many iPhone pics that I have taken, but in the greater scheme of things, I know that my number is much less mainly because I really don’t like the quality of the pics I get with my iPhone. I’d rather have photos from my real camera.  Anyways…without further adieu…here is our sweet buglet.

Silly Girl | Houston TX Baby Pictures

This is an oldie, but a goodie!  Funny how photographs bring back memories…even from years ago.  I photographed this family almost two years ago, yet the memory of our session radiates such joy when I am reminded of it through photos such as this that I took at the session.  What good are photographs if they don’t remind you on a happy time.  One moment.  One silly face.  One true glimpse of your child’s personality.  A snapshot into your life….captured forever.

Houston TX Baby Pictures

A photographers note:  Just like outdoor sessions, I prefer only to utilize natural light for even indoor sessions.  Sure, I could use a flash or studio lighting setup, but honestly, I feel like it restricts me when working with kids on the move.  I might have to crank up the ISO or risk blowing out highlights to expose my subject without artificial fill light…but for me, the results that I get with only natural light are to me most important.  Plus, I don’t like the idea of a constant flash being blasted into a child’s face and trust me when I tell you that my shutter especially during session with children is firing at the maximum at times…so most of the time, a fill flash would not be able to keep up.

New Arrival | Houston TX Baby Photographer

As many of you know, I’ve been on maternity leave…sort of.  hehe.  There were a few sessions that I took on with returning clients and referrals that I have taken on, but for the most part I’ve been enjoying our sweet baby boy these days.  It’s been really nice because as I already begin to plan my schedule for the remaining year….(which is filling up VERY fast, by the way, so if you want to book a session with me for 2013, please don’t delay in contacting me)…as always I begin the dreaded chore of a bit of computer ‘cleaning’ which basically means organizing and deleting tons of stuff in order to have a fresh start come the busy holiday season and more importantly come the first of the new year…which is only three months away.  Crazy, I know.

As usual, when going through my computer clean up, I always come across a number of sessions that never got blogged for one reason anther.  The most common reason, as most any photographer will tell you, is that I simply didn’t have time to blog it or amidst the hustle and bustle, just forgot.  I know, I know…shame on me…because seriously, every session is so lovely and deserves to be posted. :-)  And this session was one of those sessions.

I’ve said it before many times how much I enjoy being invited into peoples homes for sessions.  It’s much more common for newborn sessions to take place in the home, but rest assured that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE shooting families with children of all ages in their home.

Are these sweet or what?  A endearing big brother with his new baby brother.  Sweetness at it’s finest.

Photographs with Your Pets | Houston Family Photographer

Sure, my specialty is children, but most certainly I enjoy photographing families whose ‘children’ have four legs.  hehe.  I have a soft spot specifically for dogs.  My own sweet puppy is going on seventeen years.  Crazy, right?  And she is still showing signs of life.  So, okay, her sight is not the greatest and she can only hear certain pitch sounds…conveniently not the sound of my voice….but that’s okay….I love her still so very much.  Never mind she can’t make it up and down the stairs anymore and I must carry her (luckily she is only about 12 lbs.), I’ve had her since college and she is still very much my ‘baby’.

Anyway…enough about my doggie.  I very much enjoy photographing pets with their owners in particular those as sort of regal as these two.  Please, if you are a pet owner, contact me!  If you are looking for more traditional photographs with your pets such as these show here that I was privileged to take, great!  I can accommodate.  Or if you’d rather have more lighthearted, fun, free-flowing captures with your pets, I would love to photograph the special bond that you share with them!

First of all. LOVE her outfit and colors in their home! These pups are precious and I love the idea of taking professional pics with your furry family!

Hannah Waters

Cute! Family portraits with your pets are so hard to capture sometimes and these are perfect!

Shelsea Kinsey

Wow! I don’t know how you get even the dogs to look so great and unposed, but these are amazing

Jackie Adams

Gorgeous pups and couple! I love how you captured their eyes (my poor lab usually has glowing eyes that I struggle to fix in pictures!).

Sasha Van Nes

Wow! The colorful clothes the subjects chose to wear are so vibrant and really bring alive the pictures.

Cortney Ferguson

Love these! These dogs are so cooperative! You must have the special touch….beautiful dogs, beautiful home. I am in love with the colors and coordination with the drapery.

Beginner Photography Workshop | Photography 101 Class Houston TX

Recently I’ve had quite a number of requests lately for a beginner workshop/class to help those of you struggling with your digital SLR camera.  These classes will be relaxed, but pretty thorough covering quite a bit of information for beginners.  However, I can speak from my own experience that it’s not rocket science and you are really smarter than the camera.  Anyone can learn some basic skills to give the opportunity to create much nicer images.  As I have said before, there is a place and time for professional photographs, but I can’t be your full time personal paparazzi.  HA!  If photography is something you are interested in, you owe it to yourself and the field to take the best pictures you can.

This class is great for parents, real estate professionals, food bloggers, sellers on Etsy, etc.
What you will learn in this class will help you take better photographs of everything from people and animals to food and architecture and more.

Beginner Photography Workshop | Photography 101 Class Houston TX

Please be prepared to bring your DLSR camera, take lots of notes and ask lots of questions. :-)  Digital SLR required for attendance.  If you are not sure if your camera is a digital SLR, please contact me and let me know what camera you have.  It will be most helpful to have at least one prime (non zoom) lens in your ‘bag’.  This class is not intended for those wanting to learn studio lighting or flash photography.  This class will focus on natural light and no camera flash.  This class is ideal for someone who is really serious about taking better photos with their camera in full manual mode.  This is not a class for children.  This is also not a class for those wanting to know how to start a photography business or anything related to post processing.  This is strictly how to get the best image straight out of camera.

Freshly Hatched | Houston Newborn Photographer

As many newbie photographers do, in the early days of my business I was just trying to find my way of sorts.  Just like learning any craft, you spend endless hours feeling a bit overwhelmed with the plethora of information and ‘stuff’ to learn.  For photography, not only do you have to learn how to work your camera, you are also learning Photoshop and post processing AND trying to learn what will be your style in both.  You are just photographing anything and everything….thinking that you have to be good at it all in order to be successful.  At least for me, the process was fun, but yet so mind boggling.  Throw into the mix the whole business side of things…choosing what your ‘brand’ will look like and how you will structure your pricing….and then how you will actually GET business and KEEP it.

It’s a lot of ‘stuff’…..it’s no wonder so many photographers do not succeed in the business. :-(

Anyway….when I began my business I easily got pulled into shooting the way I thought my clients wanted me to shoot.  At the time, I thought to be successful shooting kids and babies, I would have to have a huge arsenal of props and ‘things’ for each session.  I started my collection only to realize that this was not at all the types of photographs I wanted to take.  Even thought I could take these types of photographs, I simply did not want to.  They didn’t do it for me.  Each to their own.  Certainly there is a huge…and I mean huge market for the studio, very stylized kind of photo sessions, but I didn’t care about that.  It took only about two years or so for me to make the decision that I was going to get rid of all the ‘fluff’ in the pics.  I am not saying there is anything wrong with fluff….but it’s just not for me.  I currently have three bowls for newborn sessions.  That is basically the extent of what I would call ‘props’.  I have a few simple crochet hats and a very tiny selection of hair accessories, that are very small such as the one in this series, but basically that is it…well, not counting the countless blankets and wraps, but I don’t consider those props.  I like to use the wraps so that I there is no need to take off the babies diaper during the session and I think they look pretty without being distracting.

Why am I even saying all this?

If you are looking for a newborn or child photographer who has lots of props or fancy ‘set ups’, let me tell you that I am most certainly NOT the photographer for you.  I have some lovely photographers that I will gladly refer you to if that’s what you are looking for.  When I photograph your newborn, I want to focus on your baby and your baby only.  I want to create photographs that will be timeless in their simplicity.  Yes, there will be some simple ‘posing’ during in particular the newborn sessions, but more of babies in a natural state.  Some babies will fall into certain poses very naturally.  There are some poses that certain babies will have nothing of…I am not going to force it.  Now I may try it patiently a couple of times, but if your baby does not seem comfortable, we will simply move on to the next one. :-)  And furthermore, I am not going to majorly Photoshop your baby/child’s skin.  I will take care of some imperfections, but your if you are wanting your baby/child’s skin to look like they have makeup on…I am not the photographer for you.  I like to keep your baby/child looking as much like they look in real life.

And recently, mostly due to the birth of our own baby boy, I am going to make a point in every newborn session to get at least one series of photographs with your baby awake and bright eyed.  So if you are looking for some beautiful, simple, classic photographs of your new arrival without any fluff (such as these) then I am totally your photographer!

Message me.  <3

Photos in Galveston, Texas | Beach Family Portraits Houston

I’ve said it many times before.  Shooting in full sun is really hard.  I mean really hard!  In particular when you are shooting a family with kids.  I would say that shooting an adult or teenager would be a much easier task.  Why you ask?  Well, when shooting in full sun, it’s so much more vital that the subject is in just the right spot and preferably will stay in that certain spot while photographs are taken.  With kids, it’s (as you can imagine) difficult to get kids to stay in one spot.  Plus, I don’t really want them to.  I prefer to shoot children in a more fluid,  natural state.  Within reason.  I’ll sort of get them in a general location, but then allowing them to just sort of ‘do their thing’ whatever that is at the moment.  I find that the most beautiful photographs are the ones that truly capture the personality and nature of your child.  There is not as much wiggle room as we will call it like in the case of shade, where the lighting is basically the same no matter where the subject is.  The very reason that I personally would always prefer to shoot at sunset or just before sunrise.  I shoot in full manual mode 100% of the time.  No joke.  I say this not because that’s better necessarily or to try to make it seem like I am all that.  I’m not by a long shot.  However, I find that shooting in full manual mode ALL the time is the only way that I am able to 99.9% of the time get the right exposure for each image.  Full manual mode (at least for me) means toggling/changing focus point, changing ISO as needed, changing aperture as desired and almost constantly adjusting my shutter speed with almost every image.  Yep…that’s a lot of different things to think about, but with practice, like with anything else…you can do it in your sleep.  HA!  And that also applies when I am shooting personal pics, too.  I’m a little bit of a control freak…I admit.  So manual mode, all the time, in 100% of the cases works best for me.  And when it comes to shooting in full sun, I would say that it is completely vital that you shoot in manual mode (especially if you are not using a flash, which I do not) to achieve the best images.   Opinions will vary, but I also don’t mind sun flare in your images.  Not in every image, of course, but I do love sun flare when shooting in full sun.  You can avoid flare and haze by the way you position your lens to the sun or throw on a lens hood to help avoid all haze, but I like to quickly have the option to have sun flare/haze or not.  You can see in this series of images that I took recently of this beautiful family at the beach, there are some images that have sun haze/flare and some do not.  The ones that do not were shot while myself and the subject were in the shade.  Some of them with flare were shot with myself and my subjects in full sun.  I also prefer to always face my subject to be in front of the bright sun and I face the sun so that the subject is more backlit.  Everyone likes different photograph styles.  This is just mine.  Some pros would argue that you should never have flare or haze in photographs, but this is why there are so many photographers out there with different styles who are equally as successful.  I personally don’t think one is right or wrong, it’s just what you like.  <3
