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. ;-)

If you are new to the blog, welcome and thank you for stopping by.  hehe.  For those of you who are not new around these parts, YIPPY!  Thank you for coming over to see what’s happening over here.  :-)

As many of you know, I am an adoptee myself and have a heart for adoption.  This includes those who are adopted and those families that adopt.  About two years ago, I was privileged to be part of four photographers who launched Red Thread Sessions.  It is an organization that connects adoptive families with photographers.  These photogrpahers donate photography to these familes.  You can check out our site here:  Red Thread Sessions

I’ve been so honored to photograph a number of families from this organization. This is one of those families.  Like many, they felt called to add a child to their family through adoption.  And what a fantastic addition he has made.

I really wanted this session to be as relaxed as possible.  Considering this family of seven, these kiddos were so easy and didn’t get too rowdy.  ha!  Still, we had such a great time as you can tell.  ;-)

When I get an email that mentions photographing an extended family,  I get really excited.  While I do believe it is very important to document your immediate family on a regular basis through professional photographs, I also am a big advocate to have at least once, a multigenerational photo session that includes grandparents.

This is just a few of the lovely photos I took this day recently of such a family.  I could not resist a few shots of just grandma and grandpa, as showcased at the bottom here. Stay tuned, as I will be posting the 2nd half of those photos which was focused on my client’s immediate family which included her, her husband and their new baby girl.  :-)

Oh how I’ve enjoyed watching this little guy grow so big!  I’ve been so privileged to photograph him as a newborn and many milestones after that and now he is over two years old.  We recently went to the zoo and got some shots of him and his wonderful parents there.  The Houston Zoo is actually pretty good zoo.  I mean, it’s no San Diego Zoo, in California, which I recently got to visit and was so awesome I can’t even begin to tell you…but still, the Houston Zoo is certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.  ;-) So check it out!!

On this particular day, even though there where were not as many animals out as we would have liked to get this little guy exicited, we did find this amazing little rope playset that we were able to get this little guy very…and I mean, VERY excited about.  He was hesitant at first…needing encouragement and help from mom and dad with every step….but then he got the hang of it real fast and then there was no stopping him.  I was lucky to get some fun shots still.  And it is a bit…well, maybe a lot of luck actually getting these sorts of shots.  Why?  Well, first of all, trying to focus on a subject through little holes  or squares in this case…and less we not forget a subject that is moving basically non stop….well, they are pretty difficult shots to get, but just like with all such things, I am up for the challenge and will do my best, but then it will quite a bit of luck in the end if you get even a ‘money shot’ or two.  hehe

I mean, maybe some people can get these shots like in their sleep, but I think those people are more of a rarity.

So here it is…my ‘money shot’ of the series.  I am so happy with it I can hardly contain myself.  <3

If you would like to have your family photos done at the Houston Zoo, please contact me!  I would love to take more photographs at such locations!

Who can resist dreamy photos of a mother and her child?  This precious girl turned 8 months old recently.  She is two weeks older than our little boy, so it is so fun to watch them grow side by side.  I could not resist having her beautiful momma in some of the pics and I’m so glad she on board.  There is this little window, I think, when your baby has such personality and is hitting so many milestones….the 4 months or so when they are not a newborn anymore, but they are not quite a toddler.  They still have a bit of that ‘baby’ look…they are not yet walking, but maybe crawling…and are what I would call still so snuggly.  It is in the months that I beg you to have photos done of you and your child.  I would say between 4-10 months.  Such a wonderful time to document the maternal bond.  Are these two the sweetest or what!!??

On another note, I so often wonder why there are not more ‘gifts’ of photography given.  What do I mean?  I mean, I’m surprise that more people do not purchase photography sessions for friends and family.  It could even be a couple of friends going in together on a photo session for a new mommy or a grandparent gifting a session for their grandchild on their first birthday or something.  Don’t you think that photos like this would be a wonderful keepsake item that would never be forgotten?  Or how about a mother getting photos done with their child for dad? Just throwing out some ideas.  ;-) Just think about it.  I think photography is one of the most wonderful gifts you could give someone so please keep such in mind, would you?

Hard to believe it has been over two years now since this sweet momma contacted me to take photos of their family of three….well, three and one in the oven.  hehe  She was, at the time, weeks away from having her son and wanted photographs of her beautiful baby bump and to capture the memory of their final weeks of being a family of three.  Time flies…oh how it flies….now her baby boy has turned two and I’ve had the privilege of documenting their family on many occasions during this time.

This family beams with the most amazing joy for one another.  It is contagious.  They are always just wonderful to spend time with and I love all the fantastic conversations I have with this momma.  She is certainly not just a client, I consider her my friend.;-) For this session, we went back to the very spot where we took their family photos that first time.  It was fun and was thrilled how they came out!
