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. ;-)

The Time is Now | Houston Child Photographers

I do enjoy photographing older children, but I (unfortunately) don’t get to do it quite as much as younger kiddos.   I guess life gets the best of everyone as the children grow and professional photography becomes less of a priority for many families.   (Of course) I feel families should at least have one pro family photo session each year, but if you are unable or feel that is too much, at the very least, I recommend professional portraits every 2-3 years.  I’m biased, sure…I admit to that. ;-)  BUT a promise you this…your kids will barely remember all the ‘stuff’ they have…it will be the memories and photographs that will stand the test of time.  When the computers, games and toys, designer clothes, etc. have faded, photographs will be the tangable you (and they) cherish the most.

Blah, blah, blah…enough sappy for today.

How about a genuine smile to brighten your day. :-)

Watching them Grow | Houston Children’s Photographer

I love watching kids grow up.  I enjoy seeing them become more little people than children.  Sure, they are still very much a child still, but they are developing these very distinct personalities and becoming just much more aware of, well…everything..maybe too much.  ha!  Never the less, I feel so special being able to document these milestones each year…and sometimes multiple times a year when I’m really lucky. :-)  I’ve had the privilege of photographing this beauty since before she could speak.  Wow, how time flies.  She will talk your ear off these days.  <3  I had entirely too much fun during this session…even if all she really wanted to do was climb the trees.

What a beautiful little girl! My fave shot has to be the one where she is holding her mothers hand looking up at her :)

Celebrating the Bump | Houston Pregnancy Pictures

I had a nice time with this couple.  I can not take credit for the ‘bump ahead’ photos.  That was something that this creative momma came up with prior to our shoot as

something she wanted to do.  And I was game. :-)  I can’t wait to meet their little girl this summer.

Beautiful pictures! I found your blog while I was trying to find out where a “Bump Ahead” sign was near Houston…could you tell me where it was? Thank you!

Hi Leslie! Thank you! It’s just a yield sign that I Photoshopped. ;-)

Facebook Timeline Designs for Clients | Houston Family Photography

If you are a current client and would like to have a fun Facebook timeline created, here are your options for design.

Some templates that are solid color may be tweaked a little for a different color of your choice, but mostly the design stays as is because it’s FREE.

You can pick the photos you want or have me pick.  It’s up to you. :-)  Photos used in these collages must be photographs from one of our sessions together.

There are many to choose from, so I suggest you just scroll through and the very first one that catches your eye, go with that one.  Otherwise, it will be overwhelming.

Then, if you want another one, I will allow an additional one every three months.

A Super Fun New App for Making an Album with your iphone Photos

I recently discovered the coolest little iphone app.  I know, I know…there are so many awesome apps out there, but this one is not only super cool but so ridiculously easy to use.

Even though I always encourage professional photographs, I certainly am not naive to the real world.

And the real world takes pictures….and lots of them…with their phone.  I personally feel like the iphone camera is quite superior to other cell phone cameras, hence one of the many reasons I personally have an iphone.  Anyway, you’d be surprised to know how few photographs I actually have on my phone compared to that of most of the population.  However, I still have a good amount of fun memories captured in cell phone images.

And even though most of these images I would never blow up or print to display on walls in my home, I do still believe that many of them are worthy of being archived in print.  And I feel like little books are a great place to start with these images.

Which leads me to this app called the Mosaic.  You can check out there website here:  http://www.heymosaic.com/

The app is free of charge and you can choose up to 20 images that will be automatically placed into an adorable, simple 7×7 hardcover album.  It basically puts one image per page.  I particularly like these books because they offer such a clean, simplistic design.  The design that you don’t even have to think about.

Within about 3 seconds, your book is ready for print.  You just click to order.  And in less than a week and for only $20.00, you have the cutest little mini album with your iphone pics.

Celebrating Your New Family | Houston Newborn {in home} Photography

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this session.  Such a laid back crew with the sweetest puppies, of whom they wanted in some of the photos, which if you know me, I was more than happy to oblige.  Upon first meeting this new mom & dad, I sensed just the most kind spirit and even though I was only in their home a couple of hours, the love was abounding. <3  Congrats to your new son and thank you for choosing me to be a part of this special time!

LOVE! I love that the parents and pups are in so many of these newborn photos. I have newborn photos of both my boys, but my husband and I aren’t in any of them, and this makes me wonder if that was a mistake. Beautiful session.
