Houston Family Photographer | Mama and Me Sessions

I hope everyone had a phenomenal week.  Mine has been crazy busy… which is a great thing!  I get to see my amazing friends and make new friends with every session that I do.  Today, as promised, I have been working on putting together a blog post about my Mommy and Me sessions.  So being a Houston Family Photographer, this gives me a chance to celebrate Motherhood.  And we as mother’s should UNITE in Motherhood and celebrate it so that everyone hears us.  And what better month to do that, then May?

I am one of those.. women are amazing, women are strong, beautiful, sensitive, and I could list so many other things, but I won’t and I’ll leave that up to you to create your own list of how incredible women are.  As I’ve started writing this, the intention of these sessions were for mommy and me sessions, but now I think I want to do sessions for women.  So if you want to feel, look, and show off how incredible you are, please do come.  And if you want to show off your beautiful children too, I want them to come along as well.  Let’s feel beautiful together and let’s feel EMPOWERED.  Ok, here are the details for these sessions:

When: May 21st, 2016

Time: Starting at 9:00am – 1:00pm

Where: My photography studio in Conroe (2112 West Davis St, Conroe, Tx 77304) on the 2nd floor of Bella Vita Salon.

Included: Professional photography by me (30-40 minutes), professional hair and makeup, many wardrobe options to choose from (dresses/shirts size M and little girl clothes size 12-2T, and a couple larger sizes), boys size 6, flower set design (pictured below) and a couple flower crowns to choose from!

Cost: $350 per session + 8.25% sales tax

Retainer: Since session times are so limited, the full cost is due up front to reserve your spot along with a contract signed due to hold your time

If you’re a visual person, I went ahead and did some shots of a couple close friends of mine of what the set up looks like.  All clothing pictured (except boys pants) is available in the studio wardrobe!

Being a Houston Family Photographer and having a studio in Conroe and having my life teammate (Tamara Wylie) create these dreams and visions that I have, it really makes my heart so happy. <3  I am so grateful for everyone who believes in me.  If you’d like to book one of these sessions, please do get in touch.  I would love to meet you, or if I have already, I’d love to see you again! <3

Baby and Family Photography The Woodlands | Sidaros Family

The Sidaros family came to see me for my mini sessions at the beginning of the Spring season.  Since I specialize in Baby and Family Photography The Woodlands, it was a perfect fit!  Mini sessions are a great option for families with small children, because occasionally, small children just can’t handle being told what to do for an hour and half.  The good news is- on my sessions, we do play a lot.  Especially with my full Baby and Family Photography The Woodlands sessions, they really do get to run around and jump and play.

Sally also signed up for my Baby and Family Photography The Woodlands workshop that I am offering this year for the first time ever.  There’s a lot of great information if you are just starting out, need help figuring out photoshop, it touches on the business side of things, helps you explore your camera and get it in manual mode (and so much more).  If you’d like more information on that, it’s not too late to sign up.  Just be sure to read over what is included to make sure that you are a perfect match!

Here’s the highlights from Sally’s Baby and Family Photography The Woodlands photo shoot!  Be sure to get in touch if you’d like to book a session of your own!

The Woodlands Family Photography Mini Session | Stegall Family

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend this weekend.  Busy season is upon me again and I am loving every second of it!  I had two amazing photo shoots this weekend and I am so grateful for the continued support of all my clients and families.  But first, I need to share one of my The Woodlands Family Photography Mini Session.  Meet the Stegall family.  Jessica emailed me when she saw my mini sessions being offered and I am so glad she did.  Here sweet family was so incredible and fun to work with.  They are the epitome of the types of sessions that just make my heart beat.  We met in downtown Conroe and played.  Yep, that’s it!  Easy peasy, no fuss, just played.

I know in my style of photography, candid art is something that can be hard for a lot of families to embrace.  So when I arrive to a session, it may take a little bit to get in the groove of it all.  And trust me when I say, it really makes for the best pictures.  I will sometimes ask what you love to do as a family, and that just helps me to understand what makes you comfortable and how to help you relax with a camera shoved in your face.  Well, these guys did exactly as I dreamed of… they just played and went with whatever I suggested.  And we got some really incredible shots.

Keep on the lookout for more The Woodlands Family Photography Mini Session announcements.  I know I will be doing some in the fall and maybe this summer.  So be sure to get in touch if you are interested in booking any type of session with me!  Below are highlights from this amazing The Woodlands Photography Mini Session.

The Woodlands Family Photography Mini Session

The Woodlands Photography Studio | Erin

We had a round of mini sessiona at the beginning of March and I am just now being able to get caught up on all things  blog and thought that I would share one from this sweet session.  Having a The Woodlands Photography Studio located in Conroe, it is nice to serve my clients from the greater Houston area.  Erin came from Cypress to come see me.  This baby was not wanting to be  anywhere away from mama.  Although this can make sessions in my The Woodlands Photography Studio a tiny bit of a challenge, it also captures just who they are at the age they are at.  And this sweet baby is a mama’s girl.  While being a mama’s girl can also be challenging at a times, I always like to remind myself that they are only little this once, and that they won’t always be mama’s babies.  They’ll grow up and think we are annoying, so I *try* to soak it all in.  I am sure Erin does, too.

Stay tuned for another blog post in the morning highlight another one of these mini sessions!  Be sure to get in touch if you’d like to come see me or book a session!!  I’d love to meet you and I always love making new friends.

PS- I am hosting an online workshop today.  If you’d like to be a part of this amazing workshop and push your images to the next level, be sure to get in touch! <3

The Woodlands Photography Studio

The Woodlands Tx Family Photographer | Wildflower Mini Sessions

Last night I went out and took some promo shots for my wildflower mini sessions that I am offering!  Being a The Woodlands Tx Family Photographer, these just are some of those sessions that can brighten my day.  And seeing as though my promo shoots are with my kids, sometimes, they just do not want to cooperate.  And as you may have noticed on my Facebook post last night, my daughter just did not want to cooperate.  But! that’s ok.  I love to document real moments and real life, so these images will serve as these tangible moments that we will tell her about one day.

Ok!  Now for the the details of The Woodlands Tx Family Photographer | Wildflower Mini Sessions!!

Location: Eastham-Thomason Park in Huntsville, Tx.

When: April 8, 2016 and April 10, 2016.  Times will be: 6:00, 6:35, and 7:15 in the evening each day.

Cost: $250 per session (plus tax).  Payment is due in full at the time of booking to reserve your spot.  Unfortunately, since space is so limited, I cannot pencil you in without payment.  As soon as the payment is received, your spot is reserved.  It is first come, first served.  There are SIX TOTAL sessions available.

What it includes: Session, editing of at least 25 images, but for these, there is no limit on the amount I will give (i.e., if I get more, then you will receive the full collection).  You have access to the clothing that I offer in my The Woodlands Tx Family Photographer studio wardrobe.  You must make an appointment if you’d like to try them on at my studio.  Sizes that I currently have are women’s size Medium (mostly dresses, and a few shirts/skirts), 18m-2T for little girls, and size 6 for little boys (pants and shirts) and more sizes to come in the studio in the future! <3

It is also pretty important to note that the abundance of wildflowers are totally out of my control.  It is also important to note that they may or may not be around in a week.  With that being said, I cannot schedule and hold days off of my calendar unless you are totally and perfectly happy in the chance that they will not be around.  I picked a dreamy location with PERFECT light, so you will still get amazing pictures, but the reality is, there may not be wildflowers there in a week.  So the session fee is NON-REFUNDABLE even if the wildflowers are not there.  We will reschedule if weather does not permit us to shoot, as it is rainy season.  It will be rescheduled on a Friday and a Sunday in the chance that it will be rescheduled.  And the wildflowers MAY NOT be there if that has to happen.  These sessions are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Here are some shots that I took at the location that these will be held at!  Hope you love them and I hope we get to work together on them!!!
