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. ;-)

Print those images.  I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face.  And trust me, I am as bad as the rest.  My sweet baby boy is 10M old now and I’m just now hanging photos of him on the walls.  Better late than never.  And rest assured, the photos will be just as memorable as they were when they were take and will look 10X better in print.

This is an imaginary playroom.  It is used just so you can get an idea of what displays can sort of look like on a wall.  And look, these sorts of designs really do little justice to the real deal…of your images on your walls…in real life, but just humor me so you can begin to get ideas of your own. ha!

This room shows one ‘Audrey’ Organic Bloom frame, size 20×30 and two ‘Lewis’ Organic Bloom Frames sizes 12×18.  Pretty fun, right?  ;-)

These were the photos I used so you can see them a little better.  ;-)

There is not much sweeter moments than those blissful first few weeks with your new baby. Sure, the sleep deprivation is most certainly for the birds (ha!) but there are so many moments that are just bliss. Maybe those moments are so brief we almost miss them…but rest assured, they are there. It must be said again that sharing with parents as they grow their family is such a joy and privilege. Few are so lucky to be able to witness such on a regular basis. Whether it through birth or adoption, the newness is always the same. They overwhelming joy is always the same. And how quickly the moments pass are also always the same. Fleeting moments. This is life. Let me help you capture it.;-)

I went to WPPI for the 2nd time this year and oh what fun.  ;-) I went with my dear friend Mandy and it was just splendid.  While in Vegas, I had the opportunity to shoot with one of my favorite photographers, Diana Palmer.  She actually is a film photographer, which I think is like the coolest thing on the planet.  I, along with eight other girls, had a shootout of sorts with this amazing family.  Officially it was a shooting workshop, but really, in my opinion it was so much more.

What I learned was that we are all human.  We all make lots of mistakes.  We are all trying to hard to balance the creative with the business…and the business with the personal stuff.  We all question our abilities more than we should.  We all yearn to be better.  And really the only thing stopping us at the end of the day is ourselves.

There are a handful of images I really love from this workshop and these are just a few.  I hope to share more sporadically over the next few weeks or so.

Mommy and daughter pics…how much better does it get?  ;-)

As I was editing this specific gallery, I kept coming back to this image.  It just radiates with me for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on.

Even though I am very much from the country…I’ve never been much of a country music fan.  However, I’ve heard my fair share of country tunes and I admit to really loving a handful of those songs.  This particular photo made me think of the very sweet song by Martina McBride, in which she says:

In my daughter’s eyes,
I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she’ll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family,
When i’m gone I hope you see,
How happy she made me,
For i’ll be there,
In my daughter’s eyes

(darn it….it gets me every time-ha!)

I loved this photo just as much in black and white as I did in color, so I had to show you both.  Many more to come from this wonderful family session very soon!

The wall displays I am showing you are just more for the design and layout of the photos, not as much the actual photographs.  Your photo collage most certainly does not need to be all photographs from a professional photo session.  You could mix and match an assortment of different images…old and new, from multiple sessions…some professional and some sort of creative snapshots of life events or simply a favorite photo of your child.  I just want you to feel excited to prints some photos.  This display showcases four 8×10 images in 11×14 mats and four 5×7 photographs in 8×10 mats.

These photos used in this display were taken like two years ago…but as I am doing these wall displays, I will be reviving a few older sessions just for the purpose of the wall displays only as to not be too repetitive with recent work and post.  ;-) Hopefully this makes sense.
