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. ;-)

Wall Display for over Your Sofa | Houston Children’s Photographer

I love this display.  What a fun family this was to photograph.  Easy breezy.  ;-)  They were in town for vacation from the big apply, New York, to introduce their new baby to the grandparents and great grandparents for the first time.

Of course I had to get a few the baby with the new parents, too.

This display would (I feel) do best in a room with at least 9-10 foot ceilings. ;-)

Are the frames 11×14 or the prints? I would love to do this above my couch but I am curious what size those 3 frames/prints are. They look perfect! I found you on Pinterest.

First Time Parents | Houston Lifestyle Baby Photographer

This little guy is already 8 Months old now and just growing so fast.  I’m lucky that I get to see him every few months to celebrate his milestones in photographs because he is part of the ‘Grow with Me Plan’.  If you are interested in this plan, I only take a small number per year, so be sure to inquire as soon as possible to assure availability. :-)

Anyways, back to this adorable family.  I literally realized just yesterday that I had neglected to blog these photographs from what seems like ages ago.  Like I’ve said before, it’s hard to keep up with it all.  I’m just one person.  But hey, better late than never.  Enjoy. :-)

What a beautiful little family! It’s such a great idea to include mom and dad in the newborn sessions. Makes for even better memories. Beautiful work!

Getting the Best B&W | Houston Children’s Photographer

I struggled for some time to get my black and white processing just as I wanted it.  And still, there are some images that take a little more time, but I’ve basically come up with two b&w processing styles that I like to use pretty consistently.   One very important tip I can give is that to get a really nice black and white image (post processing, of course) is to first have a properly exposed and color corrected color image.  One would like to think that it is easier to process b&w images.  I used to think this as well, but now I know that processing a really nice b&w image takes more time because you need to get it right in color first. :-)

I love both the color image and the b&w of this shot.  However, I am favoring the b&w just a tad more right now.

What do you think? :-)

What Better Time than Now for Photographs | Houston Family Photographer

When Mrs. C contacted me to surprise her mom with ‘mom & daughter’ pics, I was so ecstatic I could hardly contain myself!   It was even more exciting because I had just shot her wedding last year and I thought it was so cool to have grown up pics of her and her mom.  I love the idea so much that I plan to have mother/daughter photos done with my mom this year. ;-)

Just a ‘Swinging | Houston Children’s Photographer

I did this photo in a sepia black and white processing.  For some reason it just stood out to me with this old fashioned tone.

Action shots like this one are challenging for me.  I end up taking like 30 pics and maybe two or three actually come out because hitting the focus is tough.  But I still love getting these shots and they are always worth it!

Gotta love some flyaway hair on this handsome little guy.;-)
