The Woodlands Newborn Photography Studio Session

Guys!  Slowly making my way back up in the world with these blogs and I am so thrilled to be catching back up.  If you haven’t seen my prior blogs these last couple of weeks, you might not know that my husband graduated (and he’s now a super awesome geologist).  You know, life was hard, but now.. since he’s graduated, I think we will be able to taste the ‘fruits of our labor’ and we here at home are so so so proud of him.  However, here with Andrea Surak Photography, things got a little more hectic since his helping hands are no longer here.  So it’s a bit of a transition to say the least.  So we took to my Conroe studio to do this The Woodlands Newborn Photography Studio session.

About the session

However, I hired a new assistant to help me with newborn sessions, and one of my favorite families picked up the model call when I sent it out.  They’re just my perfect client.  They go with the flow.  No fuss, no pressure if things go wrong.  They appreciate me and my time and there’s so much more I could say about this family, but it would take forever to write about it.  They always dress so perfectly.  Sweet Evelyn was the star of the session (until older brother and older sister came of course).  We started with her by herself and then moved to some family and documentary type portraits.  Just to show how exciting and precious this time is for the entire family.  Be sure to scroll below for the highlights from this perfect The Woodlands Newborn Photography Studio session!

Conroe and The Woodlands Family Photographer | Mandy S

Conroe and The Woodlands Family Photographer, Mandy and her babies

I hope everyone has had a great week.  I am kind of overloaded with editing right now, so excuse my absence with the blogs.  Up next this week is Mandy and her fur babies.  Mandy and I workout together and have really gotten to know one another over the last couple of years.  And one thing that everyone knows about Mandy is how much she loves her fur babies. <3  They’re like her children and she just is in love.  Another thing that most people know about her is that she is so generous and caring.   So when she asked me if I would be her Conroe and The Woodlands Family Photographer for this task, I couldn’t help but say yes.

About this session

We styled this session in a dreamy like setting.  Mandy wore a sequined shirt she had and paired it with my tutu that’s available in my studio wardrobe.  She also hired Tamara Wylie Designs to create a small set for her.  She wanted this session to be for her and her husband’s anniversary with sentiments that belong to just them.  I think we achieved just that, and since she means so much to me, I sincerely hope she loves her pictures.

Conroe Studio Maternity Photographer – Megan

Conroe Studio Maternity Photographer, Megan

I hope everyone had a great weekend full of joy and laughter.  I got to spend some much needed time with my babies, I had some incredible sessions, which I am so very grateful for, and today, I am off to visit my best friend in Shreveport.  I wanted to share this Conroe Studio Maternity Photographer session from a few weeks ago before I take off!  Megan responded to my model call looking for a pregnant woman.  I wanted someone who was up for me to style and basically play dress up with.  She responded and was the absolute perfect fit.  I am not sure I could have picked a better person for it.

Shortly after that, she booked me for her lifestyle newborn session in The Woodlands and those pictures have come out equally as perfect.  They are also amazing humans that deserve all of their blessings and am so grateful for some of my long time, and always trusting clients for sharing their pictures with sweet Megan so she was able to find me.

About this Conroe Studio Session

We used three dresses from my studio wardrobe.  One from Free People, one from Asos, and one from an Instagram boutique!  The flower crown, as many of you who have been following me lately, might have guessed is made by Tamara Wylie of Tamara Wylie Designs.  For more information on how to book your very own maternity session in my Conroe studio, please do get in touch! <3

Natural Light Family Photo Shoot The Woodlands – Jarvis Family

Natural Light Family Photo Shoot The Woodlands

I hope everyone is having a great day today and your week is full of sunshine and beauty!  I always try to see the beauty in the ordinary, in the everyday.  Little moments that are fleeting and missed, yet so obvious to me, but not so obvious to others.  Doing these Natural Light Family Photo Shoot The Woodlands, that’s EXACTLY what I strive to catch when documenting families.

I totally understand that family photography is something that a lot of people put on the back burner.  Heck, I am even guilty of that as well.  However, those little moments that are so easily forgotten can be a TANGIBLE memory for so many years if you take the time to do them.

Every night I put my daughter to bed, get her up in the morning, her tiny little arm wraps itself around my neck and she leans in and gives me a kiss on the cheek.  Before she gets much older, I will be hiring a photographer to come out to me and document this for me.  I HAVE to have it on paper so I remember that a little slice of heaven on Earth is right in that moment.  It feels so good and I never, I VOW I will never forget that.

When Blaire contacted me to do their family pictures a second time around, I of course, said YES.  I wanted those little moments of her and her family.  I am so grateful, honored, and definitely do not take this responsibility lightly.  I realize that I may be over sharing with this one, but I just am obsessed with the way this session turned out.  It’s just so ME!  😉  I want to be there documenting these moments for you and your family.  If you want me to do that for you, please do get in touch to schedule your Natural Light Family Photo Shoot The Woodlands! <3

Maternity Photography The Woodlands – The Starchers

Maternity Photography The Woodlands Photoshoot

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend full of joy and fun.  I had one session and I got to spend the day with my family.  Up next on the blog this morning and week, is this sweet Maternity Photography The Woodlands session.  I was so honored to be able to shoot this session for my cousin (more like a sister) and her husband.  They are expecting their first baby boy and our whole family could not be more thrilled.  I got the opportunity to style this session all on my own.  A couple of the girls who invested in my online workshop asked if they could spend their 2 hour skype session in person, if they traveled down to me.  UM… HECK YES YOU CAN! <3  So that’s what they did.  They traveled all the way from Dallas and spent the morning with me and my precious family.

The girls requested a maternity session with a beautiful girl, dreamy location, and a cute wardrobe.  This was exactly something I could do and I knew the perfect couple.  So, that’s what we did and I think it turned out beautifully.  I hope Alisa and her husband love the pictures as much as I do.  I know we as women do not always feel our most beautiful when we are carrying a baby and while taking maternity pictures, but the truth is- maternity is a beautiful thing.  It’s exactly what God intended for us as women to do, and it’s such a beautiful thing.

Some major changes are happening with my family and I know I mentioned to some of you that the possibility of us moving was there.  Well, I am happy to report that we are staying in the Houston area. I wrote up a little update below the pictures if you want to hear about our life and possible changes coming to Andrea Surak Photography!

A little update on me and my family!

Let me update you on me and my little family.  As many of you may have known, my husband has been in school and not working for the last few years.  We have fought our way to be able to let him go to school without the added stress of working.  We did not want too much family time to be taken away, so we made due with what we had.

It tested us, it had its own sets of struggles, but in the end.. he graduated and will be starting his very first day of work tomorrow.  The fruits of our labor have finally paid off!!!!   We are so excited to enter into this new chapter in our lives.  With that said, I’ll be home and working with both of my kiddos at home without his extra set of hands.  While this is so exciting, please bear with me as I navigate a new workflow and probably a new shooting schedule.

Maternity Photography The Woodlands

The Woodlands Child Photographer – Ryelin

The Woodlands Child Photographer – Ryelin

I hope everyone had a wonderful week and are gearing up for the weekend.  I have one session this weekend and I have Sunday off.   I sure do look forward to my days off on the weekends and have started implementing one weekend off a month.  I think this will help keep the excitement going for like The Woodlands Child Photographer sessions, newborn and baby photography sessions in my studio, and all those family sessions.  You see, if you get extremely busy, as with any other job, it is easy to get burned out.  And as an artist and creative, it’s important to keep those creative juices flowing while keeping that excitement in tact.  So next up on the blog is sweet Ryelin.

Ryelin’s mom puts so much trust and faith in me and my work and I am forever grateful.  She was using Jamie Anderson exclusively for portraits.  When Jamie passed away, Shanda contacted me to book a session with me and see if we were the right fit.  To say I was nervous would be an understatement, as who can really compare to Jamie?!  With that being said, I was honored to document these milestones for Shanda.

Ryelin always keeps me on my toes..she’s a runner.  She likes to run and play and does not prefer to look at the camera for me.  Shanda and I realized, that actually, she just needs a little time to warm up to me and the camera.  After that happens, she grins, smiles and has the best time ever.  Even if that means her throwing rocks.  So… in the fall for the family pictures- we will be meeting up an hour early to get her warmed up to me again.  Done and done.  For highlights on this session, keep scrolling below! <3  And for information on booking sessions, be sure to drop me a line.

The Woodlands Newborn Photography – Ellis

The Woodlands Newborn Photography – Ellis

Up next on the blog is sweet Ellis!  I haven’t always loved The Woodlands Newborn Photography, but when Tawni asked me if I could document their third (and last) baby, I did not hesitate.  It was SO MUCH YES.  You see, when I first started this photography gig, I thought I wanted to be an exclusive newborn and baby photographer.  However, little did I know… is that taking pictures of a sleeping baby is not that easy.  In fact, it is definitely anything BUT easy.  From warm and cozy rooms, to having the proper lighting, proper posing fabrics, being educated on newborn safety, and so much more… newborn and baby photography is just not as easy as it may look!  So I quickly realized this about 4 years ago and decided to move into another direction.  I chose to specialize in family photography- which will always have my heart.

However, after investing in the art of newborn portraiture and educating myself to learn the ins and outs of it, I have rekindled and am welcoming this challenge to be a The Woodlands Newborn Photography specialist! <3  I have flip flopped with the idea of it, but have now settled on it.  I decided that I am done trying to be everyone else and trying to mimic other’s newborn pictures, but rather be myself and aim for a simple, timeless, and classic look to my baby pictures.

If you’re reading this, welcome to my journey! <3  I am so glad you are on it with me!  To see highlights from this newborn baby photography session, be sure to scroll down!!

The Woodlands Wedding Photographer – Andrew’s Wedding

The Woodlands Wedding Photographer, Andrew’s Wedding

I hope everyone is having a great day and a good holiday week.  I sure did enjoy the extra day off with my babies and I actually took the day off.  Shut off the computers, didn’t have any sessions, and just hung out with them.  It was a beautiful and relaxing weekend! <3  I haven’t blogged any sessions lately because quite frankly, I haven’t had many in June.  So getting caught up on editing from the spring is in order.  So up next on the blog is the Andrew’s wedding!  I was so honored and humbled that Autumn and Justin asked me to be their The Woodlands Wedding Photographer.

Autumn and my baby sister are best friends and they met while attending high school.  A random story- we were living with my parents at that time because our house burned down in 2011, so we had to relocate there as it was getting rebuilt.  We were so grateful, but that’s how I met Autumn (bride).  It’s so surreal watching these youngins grow up into young ladies, and begin building their future.  It’s like it flashes right before your eyes and all you can do is hold on for dear life or else time will pass you by.  It has been a true pleasure seeing Autumn flourish into the woman she is now.  And as usual, it’s so humbling to be asked to document one of the biggest days of her life.

I don’t normally shoot weddings- and I only take a few a year, if that.  But every time I am done editing and get the final product over to my clients, I just dream of shooting my next one.  I hope you love these highlights and be sure to get in touch if you’d like to book a family, newborn, child or wedding in the Houston area with me! <3  I’d love to meet you.  Until next time, friends… 🙂
