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. ;-)

Sweet Baby Boy | Houston Newborn Photography

Newborn photography is something so very special.  Being allowed to capture the newness of a little person so soon after their entrance into this world.  I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face…they change so fast…and when mom’s find it a priority to have me photograph these earliest moments, I can’t help but to feel overwhelmed with happiness and joy because I know it’s something they will always cherish and never regret investing in. :-)

A Boy and His Legos | Houston In Home Photographer

I so much enjoy capturing children in their sort of element as we will call it.  Most often this means sharing moments with them and something that they love at this stage in their life.  For this sweet 4 year old, his Legos are basically his most favorite thing in the world right now.  He is not only in love with Legos, he actually has a real talent for putting more advanced projects together with no instruction.  Maybe engineering in his future, you think?  Hmmm….

So by the fourth comment I’m sure you know I have two girls, Ally and Abby. No boys yet for me. But I absolutely loved this blogged session. Im use to hair clips, dresses, dolls, barbie houses..you get my drift. No legos in my home (not that there couldn’t be). But what I love about what you captured is how this kid was happy, silly, bored, tired, then rejuvenated again all while playing with his blocks! Love it!

Rainbow of Color | Houston Pregnancy Photos

We really had the most fantastic light this particular evening.  And certainly what makes this work is a VERY awesome client who fully trust my judgement on location…even if that means riding through what some would call not so great, back woods roads…well, I can’t even really call what we drove down an official ‘road’…I sort of made it a road when I drove on it. HA!  We were in my car so don’t worry.  I would never have a client drive their own vehicle to such a spot, I mean, unless they just wanted to do some off-roading on their own.  (he-he)  Okay…so I digress.  Anyways, these guys were SO cool to let me take them to this spot.  I love the photos we were able to get.  And this mommy to be is so stunning, don’t you agree? I am so lucky to get such beautiful clients, inside and out!!   This momma is due about the same time as I am so we’ve bonded over pregnancy stuff as you can imagine.  She’s been such a sweet encouraging friend to me during this time.  And she is having a boy too. ;-)  Can you say ‘play dates”!!??  <3

My Belly Bump | Houston Maternity Photography

My dear friend Nicole did take official maternity photographs of me at 36 weeks, but I had in mind that I wanted to do a few maternity self portraits at 38, 39 and 40 weeks of my bare belly.  This is VERY much WAY out of my comfort zone, but I figured what the heck.  This is our first child and I might as well go for it, right?:-)  You can never go back.  This is a one time thing.  And I can’t be a hypocrite as I ‘preach’ the importance of documenting special moments in life and not follow through in my own life.  And I’ve worked pretty hard to not ‘let go’ during this pregnancy by eating right and exercising in hopes to have the best birth possible.  So, today with the help of something called ‘self timer’ on my camera, I took a series of shots of myself and the bump.  HA!  It sounds so funny when I call it that.

Here was my favorite from today, stretch mark and all because I’m keeping it real.;-)

What Makes a Girl Really Happy… | Houston Family Photographers

What really sends me to the moon and back are families that are so fun and fluid to shoot.  What I mean is ones that I can just let go with and take photographs without a worry in the world.  The C Family is one of those families.  I’ve had the privilege to know them and photograph their son since he was a newborn.  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing more exciting than new clients.  I love new clients!!  So, let’s not get confused here.  HA!

There is a different love I feel for my repeat clients.  The ones who allow me into their homes on a regular basis to capture their growing family.  We get to know each other so much more and then they are not just clients, I truly consider them my friend.  Mrs. C, mom extraordinaire of this family is one of the most kind, thoughtful persons I think I have ever met.  Such a genuine love and joyful spirit that is so contagious.  It overflows in her home.  Mr. C is pretty cool too.  Always so kind and makes me laugh.  I am so grateful to photograph this family and look forward to many more photos in our future.  ‘Love you guys!!  mmuuuaaahh!!
