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. ;-)

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”  ~Friedrich Nietzche

I absolutely cannot look at this family without smiling and being filled with happiness at the love they have for each other.  This awesome mom and dad clearly adore each other as well as their two gorgeous daughters!  How could you NOT love these faces?!?!  You can clearly see the potential for lots of fun mischief all over these adorable sisters’ faces, but you just can’t help but love them!  I definitely have a special place in my heart for free-spirited little girls who know how to have a good time and that surely describes these two!  I’ve enjoyed getting to know them over the years, as I’ve been photographing big sister here since she was only one year old.  I have such a blast with this family and so enjoy photographing these cutie pies as they grow!  I am so thankful that I get to be surrounded by loving, happy families (including my own) and have the privilege of capturing special and beautiful moments of their lives for several years in a row now.  Let me know if you would like to start the new year off with some amazing photographs of your children with you like this!

Be sure to come back here often to see the many more new posts coming to the blog over the next few weeks.  I got to photograph so many families this holiday season and didn’t post most of those photographs because 1) I didn’t want to spoil any Christmas cards and 2) quite frankly, rather than posting, I wanted to focus more on getting galleries completed quickly, which will continue to be my #1 goal this year…getting galleries done faster.  Thank you to everyone for keeping me busy!  <3

“No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother’s love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star.” ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin

When a baby is born, the mother typically takes pictures with her newborn and commemorates how special the bond is between them.  One of my favorite things about being a photographer is witnessing and capturing the beauty of that bond.  Often, however, as children get older, mothers don’t get in the photos with their children as much.  It isn’t that the bond is any less special.  To the contrary, the years spent together have deepened the feelings between mother and child.  So, as a mom, why not get photos taken with your beautiful growing children?!?!  That’s exactly what this gorgeous mamma and daughter duo did and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these images!  These two could not be any sweeter or lovelier!

“For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.”  ~Christina Rossetti

The bond between sisters is so incredibly special!  From an early age, if you are close in age, you share your dolls, your clothes, your secrets, your friends, your crushes, your insecurities and so much more!  Although my sister and I were more than a few years apart in age, we have always been close in our hearts and have grown even closer since becoming adults and having children.  I became an aunt before I became a mom and it was such a life changing thing (as well as great practice for becoming a mom)!  It is such an incredible blessing to experience pregnancy, childbirth and raising your children with your sister by your side…definitely makes for interesting and entertaining bonding at times!  These beautiful sisters are so much fun and the love they have for each other and these adorable children radiates from them!  Speaking of children, how cute are these two?!?!  And don’t forget their gorgeous grandma, who couldn’t be prouder of her lovely girls and handsome little guy!  I just love extended family sessions and you’ll be seeing more from this one soon!

I think pregnant women are just so gorgeous and I love to celebrate them!  What better way than on a beach in a flowing white dress with a perfect breeze?!?!  This expectant mamma could not be more beautiful with the entire setting looking like it was made for her!  She looks like the perfect picture of pregnancy health and happiness.  And how sweet and adorable is big sister with those perfect blonde curls!  OH.  MY.  GOODNESS!  Don’t forget doting Dad, whose adoration for his girls and unborn child is written all over his face!  SO sweet!  Of course, these pictures were taken a few months back when the weather was a tad warmer, but this being Texas, you never can tell!  ha!  Everything about this session was so lovely, bright and beautiful, I just had to share.  If you are expecting and would like to celebrate how fabulous you are (because YOU ARE!), contact me to arrange some magnificent shots of you at this most amazing time in your life!

Recently, as a Houston newborn photographer, I got to meet sweet baby Charlotte.  I just love that name.  So classic and pretty.

Oh what fun to photograph her shortly after she arrived.  I also got to photograph her brother when he was a baby.   It’s been so nice to be able to document him growing up and I look forward to doing the same with Charlotte.

On this day, she really didn’t want to be put down.  She is a snuggler.  She was so happy and cozy if someone was holding her, but the moment she was put down…well, let’s just say, she was not a fan of such. ha!

But with much patience, she finally settled and went into a very deep sleep.  It was then we were able to get some really wonderful images of her by herself.

Her little nap didn’t last long, as is the case with many babies.  She woke up and for about 60 seconds allowed me to snap a couple of photographs of her awake.

I love capturing newborns awake.  I really feel like their personalities come through.  And it’s when they are so bright eyed, that you can really see their resemblance to their mom and/or dad.

I was able to get her back to sleep with a nice swaddle.  Of course, had to get some photos of her sleeping in a vintage inspired wrap.  I thought the pink blanket added a nice little addition.  What girl doesn’t like pink?  😉
