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. ;-)

Ideas for Wall Collage on Stairway | Houston Photographer

There is no denying it.  I love wall collages!  I mean, what’s more awesome than seeing your beautiful family in bright, colorful photographs decorating your walls and adding character to your home??  ;-) In my dream world, all of my clients  would have at least one large wall display in their home.  So you can imagine that it tickles me pink when clients want me to help them design a wall display.  <3

Let’s say that you want to begin (‘begin’ being the important word here) a wall collage on your large stairway in your home.  You want to have a starting point.  A foundation where you can showcase some favorite photographs right now and then add to the collage as your family grows.  And don’t stress out about filling the starter collage with photographs.  Instead, place cool fabric OR special keepsake items in the frame/spot for the time being.  Then, when you have just the right photos to add, you can do so.  I would suggest starting the collage in the center of your staircase.  That way, you can easily add frames and canvases to each end to grow your collage so that eventually it spans your entire staircase.  I also have decided to add in some colored frames.  I think it just softens the whole look.  What do you think??  :-)

OMG are you serious! How could anytone choose. They are all fabulous BUT if I HAD to choose, I would say number three, but again, all three are just wonderful :-)


I like the first one best, but they really are all fabulous!

Thank you so much ladies! The client actually chose B. :-) I favored A. :-)


I love these layouts. Doing all the work of measuring and hanging in one go and then adding the perfect photos later would make life so much easier. I also like your suggestion to center the display on the wall so you can add to the ends later. Brilliant!

My husband and I wanted to try and replicate Option B for our staircase and I was wondering if you could provide any details on the size frames for purchase. Thank you and merry Christmas. :)

Hi, Lauren! So glad you like the displays. Option B: The smallest pics are 5×7’s. There are 13 of those. The next size are 8×10’s in 11×14 frames/mats. There are 4 of those. Then there is one square 15×15 of the family. And there are 2 11/14’s one with a larger mat and one with a smaller mat. Hope this helps.

Love your pictures and frames. I am looking for frames in those colors. Can you share where you purchased them. Thanks so much,
