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. ;-)

My Own | Houston Baby Photographer

You’ll likely be seeing lots of this little man on the blog…I won’t even apologize.  hehe.

He’s our little, precious baby boy…who is growing so quickly already!

This photograph was taken a week ago.  He’s four weeks and three days today.

I know, I know…he has the best hair.  He gets it from his momma. ;-)  <3

Who knew you could love something you just met so very much!!

Sweet Family of Four | Houston Child Photographer

So excited to shoot at this new location in The Woodlands thanks to my photographer group of friends.  <3 It’s so important as a professional who works from home (in my opinion) to have a good support group of other professionals who do what you do.  It was quite a bit of change for me when I resigned from my ‘day’ job/career in recuriting, which I had been doing for over 10 years…working in an office with others in my field…to then go into a work from home sort of job.  Yes, I work outside the home when I actually photograph my clients, but most of my work is done from home.  Anyways…it was a big adjustment.  I could not have done it without having met one very special photographer, Nicole with Nicole Noelle Photography (who is now one of my dearest friends) who then so graciously introduced me to the most fantastic group of ladies who are also photographers.  They have all been such a great support to me in my adventures in professional photography, as I will call it.  There is just something so wonderful about having girls that love photography as much as I do and being able to learn and grow from each other.  It’s made my transition into this field so much more pleasant and enjoyable.  I am so grateful to them.  I would recommend to any photographer, in particular those who are just new to the business, to find at least one or two other photographers to become friends with.  Trust me, I guarantee it will make this job so much more rewarding.  I guarantee it will make you a better photographer.  <3

Okay…back to this session. This family was so fun to shoot.  I admit, all my clients are pretty fun to shoot.  I am very lucky like that. ;-)

Houston Family Portraits

I was excited to shoot in a new location for this shoot.  I had heard about this park and seen photographs from the site, but had not yet had the opportunity to shoot here.  WOW!  It was a great spot!  The lighting was just amazing.

This family was so fun to work with.  I was very lucky to have a super star assistant on the scene…otherwise known as grandma.  Not my grandma, but this adorable little man’s.  She was such a tremendous help throughout the entire session.

It was a little warm outside, but this family were troopers and for that I am so grateful.  I mean, I can deal with the heat…even with being really pregnant at the time of this session.  But I’m not the one having my photo taken.  Who wants to feel all sweaty when they are being photographed??  That’s never fun.  When families push through the heat like it’s no problem….I just want to hug them!!

This little guy was pretty serious most of our session, but we were able to get some really sweet and happy moments still.  YAY!  I love what I do!!!

What I’ve been up to….| Houston Child Photographer

I’ve been a little preoccupied these days.

This was me just a few weeks ago…a self portrait of my belly…

And basically right on his due date…yep, crazy…considering I (and my midwife) were pretty sure I would go over my due date…

our sweet baby boy, Nathaniel arrived more perfect than any mom could ask for.

I had the most wonderful birth experience in the comfort on our home (that’ right…an all natural, med free home birth) that could not have been possible without the most awesome midwife, Alice Brayer with Houston Birth Services and of course the most supportive, loving, encouraging husband ever shown here with our day old son….

As you can imagine there have been quite a few photographs documenting our baby boy’s life…by my, of course.

Here are just a few of my favorites from his first two weeks of life….

He was born on Father’s day, June 16th….

weighing in at a whopping 8lbs and 13oz…

with a larger than average head of 14.5 inches…hopefully is a sign of a big brain…hehe…

and full of the most beautiful strawberry hair…which he will likely despise, but I am sooooo thrilled about!!!…(you have no idea!!)

we could not ever have dreamed of making something so wonderful….

but we did….

and now our family is complete….

I plan to share my birth story at some point on the blog…so stay tuned.

‘Nothing like twins to give you a great workout during a shoot!:-)  We had such a nice time and this family is so lovely.  Good thing I wore my tennis shoes.  HA!  And you may be wondering…hmmm…it’s July outside and these crazy people are wearing winterish clothes….well, they are not crazy, nor or you.  These photos were actually taken months ago when it was cooler out, but I just didn’t get to blog their session until now.

I know, I know…I’m a bad blogger at times.  Better late than never, I suppose. ;-)  Plus, it’s an opportunity to look forward to Fall, right?  Oh yes!  Cooler weather and the holidays.  They will be here before we know it…creeping up on us like they always do.  Hey, I’m the half glass full kinda gal.  What can I say?  HA!

I have no earthy idea how this session never got blogged considering how amazing beautiful this mommy to be was!  At times when it’s just so busy, the blog gets neglected.

It is what it is, but now it’s time for this session to makes it’s dé·but on the blog…even if months and months overdue.   Better late than never, right? ;-)

Love these pictures, especially the smile you captured in the last one and that incredible light!

Houston Family Photographer

Take three siblings, ages 3 and under.  Throw in grandma and grandpa.

Give me about 3 minutes.

And voila!  We get a handful of perfectly imperfect, priceless moments.  In black and white, of course, for a timeless look.

These grandparents look so happy with their little ones! There is just something about B&W photography. I love color, but I’m always drawn to b&w. Great images Amy!

Jamie Ennett

Love the idea of doing that with the grandparents – so sweet!

Jill Gregory

Angela’s house always takes such great pictures. Cute kids help!!

Cortney Ferguson

Love this! These pictures actually made me tear up. Such love and fun…and braveness for the grandparents to do this shoot! Taking pics with 3 that young is no easy task. I admire them and you for doing it so beautifully!
