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. ;-)

I’m a music person.  I always have been.  I can remember lyrics (as many of you) from so many songs of the past.  You know what I’m talking about.  So many songs.  Music is such a beautiful thing.  It takes you back to a time or place.  Funny how the oldest of song can have a brand new meaning if you hear it again at a different time in life; after new memories have been made.

I always go back to this song by Chantal Kreviazuk called Feels like Home.  If you have not heard it, just google it.  ;-)

The lyrics always radiate with me and as I go back through these images of this amazing family, choosing the first ones to share here, I can’t help but to sing that song in my head.  (hehe ) It goes something like this:

Somethin’ in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There’s somethin’ in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

I’m a complete romantic.  What can I say.  Cheesy, I know, but it is was it is.  ha!

Many more coming to the blog from this session in the next few weeks.

And how about the most basic of wall displays.   I know there are many of you who have extremely neutral color pallets in your home and prefer not to have even a ‘pop’ of color in certain rooms.  I get that.  Hence why I did this wall display using a b&w image.  ;-) This wall design showcases a 20X30 ‘Meg’ Organic Bloom Frame.  Pretty nice, eh?

I think this momma and I must have had like a million…okay, not a million, but many emails back and forth in attempt to nail down a date for our session.  Little did I know at the time that day would be a day that my husband was out of the country, which is so rare that it never occurred to me to book a session around such.  It was the first time with just me on my own with our son for 10 days.  Me, being ‘Miss Independent’ to a fault, I’m afraid, didn’t think much of it really.  However, as the days went by, it gave me a whole new appreciate for my husband for sure.

Then the day came to meet this family.  My mom and sister had graciously come over to keep our baby boy while I went to this session.  It’s always fun to meet new families and this crew of six was no exception.  I know in the greater scheme of things, four kids is really not all that many children for a family to have, but I always gain a who new respect for moms of more than really one.  hehe, because all I have is just one which seems like plenty most of the time.  I meet such cool mommas through my business.  I admire them so much.  All of them for some of the same reasons, but all for different reasons as well.  I do so enjoy how each mom interacts with her children.  It has always been fascinating to me to see how unique each child is and how parents engage with each child one on one.  I swear, I have the best parents that hire me.  The absolute best mommas that seem to come my way.  I couldn’t ask for better folks to work with.  Anyway, I really don’t know what my point here is, as I ramble on.  Me…ramble..??  No, not me.  hahaha!  So, let’s just get to some photos!  ;-)

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?  ;-)

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?  ;-)
