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 I was editing this specific gallery, I kept coming back to this image.  It just radiates with me for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on.

Even though I am very much from the country…I’ve never been much of a country music fan.  However, I’ve heard my fair share of country tunes and I admit to really loving a handful of those songs.  This particular photo made me think of the very sweet song by Martina McBride, in which she says:

In my daughter’s eyes,
I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she’ll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family,
When i’m gone I hope you see,
How happy she made me,
For i’ll be there,
In my daughter’s eyes

(darn it….it gets me every time-ha!)

On-location & in home, natural light lifestyle + portrait photographer specializing in birth, babies, children & families

I loved this photo just as much in black and white as I did in color, so I had to show you both.  Many more to come from this wonderful family session very soon!

The wall displays I am showing you are just more for the design and layout of the photos, not as much the actual photographs.  Your photo collage most certainly does not need to be all photographs from a professional photo session.  You could mix and match an assortment of different images…old and new, from multiple sessions…some professional and some sort of creative snapshots of life events or simply a favorite photo of your child.  I just want you to feel excited to prints some photos.  This display showcases four 8×10 images in 11×14 mats and four 5×7 photographs in 8×10 mats.

These photos used in this display were taken like two years ago…but as I am doing these wall displays, I will be reviving a few older sessions just for the purpose of the wall displays only as to not be too repetitive with recent work and post.  ;-) Hopefully this makes sense.

There are many reasons I love this photo.  Sure, genuine smiles….from not only a toddler, but his baby sister is awesome, of course.  I also love the fact that the dog just happened to get in on the photo.  That was not planned but was such a great addition when it was all said and done.  I mean, their puppy is just as much a part of the family right?  But I also really like the angle I shot at.  It is not all that unique really…shooting from above, that is.  But I do feel that them on the sofa with the kids hanging over like this is pretty unique.  It is a real moment that yes, I sort of orchestrated,but then it then just happened.  So don’t worry.  During a photo session, I am very directive.  I’m pretty good at coming up with an initial plan of positioning and/or activity, then I just let the kids sort of determine where we go after that.  I do best when I am feeding off your kid’s enthusiasm.  So momma’s don’t worry about your lively kids, rest assured, I live for lively kids.  hehe  I really try to work with your kids and not against.  Often time the kids not doing exactly what I have in mind makes for the absolute best photographs.  I just roll with the punches and ask that my families do so as well.  It really makes for a much less stressful event.  ;-)

We live in such a digital world these days, which is so great on so many levels.  With photography, there has been a huge negative, thought, I’m afraid.  So many families missing out on what really makes an image pop, so to speak.  Well, if you ask any real professional photographer, they will tell that the true value comes out in an image when it is showcased in print.  And not just any print, I quality image.  An image that is true in color and has good clarity as a print.  There are so many terrible printers and it saddens me to the core to think so many are investing in professional photography and then compromising to save sometimes a couple of dollars, when it comes to printing their images on their own.  This is especially sad when there are a handful of really great consumer printers out there for almost the same cost of a drugstore print.  The best retail printer I have found is www.unitprints.com.  They really do an excellent job.  One day I will show side by side comparisons and price differences in hopes that more will take head to the warnings and not print at the big chains, which can be quite terrible.

But that is a whole other post for another day.

As I mentioned a few posts back and tagging on how I began this post, I truly feel the value of your images is found when you see them in print.  Be them on a wall, in a little keepsake photo book in your purse, framed on your desk at work, on the fridge…wherever.  It doesn’t matter, but the point is that they are something you can feel and see without having to pull up a million photos on your phone or Facebook.  Because I feel that printing at least a few of your images is important, I’m going to begin regularly showing you ways to display them in your home on walls.  In addition, I hope to also occasionally add in other cool products and where to buy them that will allow your photographs to be showcased as a tangible item.

I’ve shown a couple of these in recent post, so to continue this new goal, here are four photos taken from a somewhat recent session.

I thought they would be really fun on the wall of a home office such as this.  This wall display shows:

a 20×24 framed image with 4 inch mat and 1.5 inch moulding and three 5×7 images in 8×10 frames with 2inch moulding

What do you think?
