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. ;-)

As a Houston baby photographer, oh how I love my clients.  I know everyone will say this, but really, it’s hard not to love those who invite you into their lives…even for an hour or so.  They choose me out of the abyss…and trust me, there is an abyss, of photographers to choose from out there.  I can’t really describe it.  When you are selected to be the one to capture a family or a child in a particular season of life.  They don’t know me from Adam, is really the best way to put it.  Sure, most of my clients come from referrals of current clients, but still, most all who hire me don’t really know me.  There is a whole lot of trust that plays a part in such a business model.

I take each client session seriuosly and really aim to treat it as it’s very own.  But by no means does that mean our session is ‘serious’.  No way.  That’s the last thing I want my sessions to be.  It’s really not hard for me though.  I’m not only very positive by nature, I am also very patient.  This is so important when dealing with such an array of personalities.

Mr. M here and his momma were nothing short of just delightful to work with.  What a happy boy he was and how about that smile!!!  Simply marvelous, don’t you think!!!???

This mom chose a full session for this little guy to allow for a variety of different shots and clothing changes.  First up were these adorable overalls (momma’s favorite) with the blue shirt to really bring out his baby blues.  Then, I could not resist just a basic white onesie that I spotted.  I love getting at least a few really simple shots with minimal clothing.  Onesies are just perfect for such.  They are minimalist and show off those sweet baby arms and legs so nicely.   Who doesn’t like those squishy baby parts.  Lastly, we had to dress him up with this handsome checkered button down.  We got a few of him with one of his favorite toys, the stackable boxes.  So fun!

I think that underwater photography make for the most stunning wall displays in basically any room!  Here I have a collage of underwater photos I took over the summer showcased in Organic Bloom Frames.

The frames shown are a 12×18 Maryanne Twin, a 5×7 Meg, a 5′ Johnny, an 8×12 Ricky, an 11×17 Audrey, a 5×5 Lewis, a 5×5 June, a 5×10 Eva and an 8×10 Cary Grant

A conversation starter for sure.  I chose to do black and whites for this display just because I wanted to keep it very classic and clean.  If you wanted to add some color, most certainly color images would offer just that.  Also, consider color frames for a splash of color with the b&w images, so it’s not too over the top.  These frames come in a multitude of wonderful color options.  I’m sure we would find something just perfect for your space.

Here is a shot a little closer so you can see a little better the photos I chose.

I’d love to design a wall display for you!  If you are a current client of mine, let’s talk!  Photos are best when printed and seen on a regular basics.

Herman Park is a great place for a Houston Texas Maternity Photography session.  This stunning momma had only a few weeks left before her arrival was going to be welcomed into this world.

If I said these two were such a blast to hang out with, it would be an understatement.  This was the first time for this momma to have professional photos done.  So happy to have been the one chosen to document this special time for her.  First baby and first photo shoot.  Pretty cool if you ask me.  The day was pretty overcast, although you would not ever know from the pics.  YAY!   Actually I wasn’t sure if we were possibly going to get a little rained on.  However, the weather held out perfectly for us and we got some really great shots.  At the end of our session, it was actually getting dark, but these two wanted a few photographs in the water.  Of course, I was happy to make those happen for them.  Those final photos only proved what I already had known about these two that they are so much in love with each other and enjoy having a good time.  Love my clients when they make my job so darn easy!!

These photos were not planned.  I was photographing a first birthday party.  As with most 1st birthdays, it could not be complete without the ‘baby eating the cake’ portion of the event.  It’s always funny to see how a baby will react to such.  In particular, if it is their first time eating something as a cake with icing.  Contrary to what most would think, there are many babies that simply don’t really like it.  Maybe it’s a texture issue or maybe it’s just too sweet.  Who knows.  This birthday boy did a pretty decent job, I would say, in well, let’s just say creating a mess with his cake.  As I’m not for sure how much of the actual cake made it into his mouth.  haha.  But everyone sure enjoys watching the birthday baby still the same, no matter the outcome.  It’s just fun.

So after this little guy made his mess, they wanted to actually give him a bath.  The bathwater was actually already run when I thought the kitchen sink would be so much more lovely.  And I’m so very happy with our 5 minutes in the kitchen sink photos.  We got some sweet ones with icing covered face and then wanted to get a few with clean face, too…but by the time he was ‘clean’ he was basically ready to get out…of course, but we managed to get a few still.  YAY!

I do photograph a handful of birthday parties each year and honestly I just rarely get around to showing any of those on the blog because quite frankly, it’s a lot of photos to pick through.  It is hard enough choosing which photos from a regular session are my favorites to blog, but when it comes to party photos…without showing you a large number, you really can’t get a good feel of the party.  So here is my first real attempt at showing you what a birthday party shoot looks like.

I was tickled pink to have been chosen to photograph this little guy’s first birthday recently.  His momma really went all out making almost all of the decorations herself, with the help of some family, too.  But does she have a creative eye or what?  Just take a look at the is fun decor!  I was very impressed with the entire circus themed party, but what really stole my heart was the cake and the cake table.  Just so perfect for words!

Then here are just a few images from the event documenting family and friends who were there to celebrate the special occasion.

What’s a birthday without the birthday boy eating some cake?  Pretty sure he liked it.  hehe.

baby

After the cake eating, he did have a bath in the kitchen sink….but you can check out those photos on another post soon!  They deserve their own post they are so adorable.

But here, the birthday boy was supposed to be opening his gifts, but he really just wanted to eat his sucker and make another mess.   Boys will be boys, right?

baby

We did wipe his face for a few shots at the end.  So precious isn’t he!!??
