Happy day, friends!  Another post is going up and man oh man was it a beautiful evening that night.  It’s a true honor when fellow creatives ask me to document their biggest milestones in their lives.  One being welcoming their newest addition to their sweet family.  With the sunsetting in the most beautiful of ways, joyful smiles had for all, a sweet friend accompanying us and sharing her perspective, and the excitement of a new baby in the horizon.  It’s a true compliment to do Alyx and her family’s Maternity Photography The Woodlands Tx.

Alyx is a hair and makeup artist over at Salon’s at the Lake.  With anything from a monthly highlight, to a custom photography glam, she is sure to make you feel your best.  The girls at that salon are nothing short of amazing and I always love and jump at the opportunity to work with them.

Being a mother of two myself, I can totally relate with the time in which Alyx was in while these images were being photographed. The flutters of those little baby feet, the cuddles from your firstborn while you both anticipate the new life and new soul entering in the world, the nesting, and everything else in between.. the moments are amazing.  Scary.  Beautiful.  An ugly cry here and there, and magic.  True and pure magic.

Alyx’s sweet new bundle will be here in a blink of an eye and I am so excited to meet that new baby.  Be sure to stay posted if you’d like to see that session and make sure, if you’d like to book a session with me, you get in touch!  I would be thrilled and honored to work with you and to do your Maternity Photography The Woodlands Tx!!

The Woodlands Family Fun | Shadow Bend Park

Summer is absolutely one of the most gorgeous times of the year. And what’s even better is that it’s so fun for the kiddos! No school, sun kissed skin, endless play. It truly is a wonderful season that has so many opportunities for fun and adventure. Being a momma of two, I often find myself looking for new ways to entertain the kids. Let’s face it – being in the house with two little ones is enough to drive any parent crazy! I was so so excited when a dear friend of mine introduced me to Shadow Bend Park, as it is an awesome place to take the kids in the sweet summertime sun!

About Shadow Bend Park

Shadow Bend Park is located in The Woodlands, Texas, and has so many fun amenities. Not only does it have a newly renovated playground for the kiddos to play on, but you can also find soccer fields and tennis courts there as well. It even has a pool, along with a splash pad for the kiddos to cool off in after a long hot day at the park! My husband and I love being able to get our precious little ones outside and playing in the sweet outdoors. It’s such an amazing feeling watching my babies play their little hearts out.

This park is a gorgeous place to go when you are in need of getting your kids (and yourself) out of the house for a bit. Whether it’s a day at the pool, a picnic, a birthday party, or just a quick two hours at the playground, Shadow Bend Park is a must for families in The Woodlands area!

The Woodlands Family and Child Photographer – Summer Client Appreciation Event

The Woodlands Family and Child Photographer – Client Appreciation Event

Happy Tuesday, friends! <3  The kids are out of school, lemonade is my fridge demanding to be drank (well, ok, maybe it’s in capri sun packets) and I am still working.  As a premium The Woodlands Family and Child Photographer, I understand that pictures are an investment, and while we want to document as much of our kid’s childhoods, the budget just will not always allow.  Which made me think- how can I tell all of my client how TRULY grateful I am for their business?  Well, the best way I know how to do just that is by doing what I do best- giving you tangible memories!!!!

So I am so ecstatic to introduce my first annual Client Appreciation Event.  Soooo.. what is it, you ask?  Well, if you follow me at all, you may have known that I just moved into a new house on the North Side of Conroe in Willis, Tx.  We love our neighborhood, our neighbors, and our new home.  And what’s super duper cool- our backyard LITERALLY has an adorable natural running creek behind it.  When I laid eyes on it, I thought to myself… all the sessions.  Give me all the sessions!  Hahaha, so in true Andrea form- I made that dream a reality and this is where I will be hosting this event.  Right in my backyard.  So will you join me?  See below for details:

  • Offered to all 2016-2017 (YTD) full session clients (booked a full session with me in the last calendar year).  These sessions are a first come first served basis.
  • DATE: July 15th, 2017  Times: 4:00pm, 4:20pm, 4:40pm, 5:00pm. 5:20pm, 5:40pm, 6:00pm, 6:20pm, 6:40pm, 7:00pm, 7:20pm, 7:40pm.
  • These sessions are free!  No obligation to purchase, and an 8×10 gift print will be included in the session
  • This session can be your children, or the whole family!
  • Extremely candid and fun and carefree!  My absolute favorite kind <3
  • Each session will be 15 minutes long and will have at least 10 images for you to choose your 8×10 from
  • If you’d like to purchase them all, that option, of course, will be available and will be lower in cost than my “normal” session rates
  • You will have access to my wardrobe for you and your children if you’d like to utilize that, I just need to know ahead of time because I do expect them to get wet/dirty and they cannot be reused on different sessions
  • I will be serving refreshments for dads and mamas and have some treats for the kiddos (watermelon anyone??!!)
  • The creek rises pretty high after it rains, so there is a possibility of rescheduling to a different date if there is a heavy rainfall in the days prior.
  • Great for getting an updated family portrait, or getting updated shots of your babies!

I am so excited to be offering these, so let me know if you would like a time slot.  And be sure to reach out for scheduling those fall family sessions.  I am already booking and only taking a limited amount for this coming year!!

As any of you parents out there know, a good baby sitter is HARD to find. I’m talking, a long-term, reliable, no wories half way through your movie kind of good baby-sitter. This amazing girl has been just that for me and my husband and I couldn’t thank God more for her help over the years! Its hard to believe she’s grown into this gorgeous young woman and is about the fly the nest, but such is the process of life! I wish time would slow down!! I adored being her The Woodlands Senior Portrait Photographer though! She was super fun to capture!

I love knowing all the sides of Meghan’s personality. Such a hard worker when it comes to her school work, such a wonderful friend and a sweet goofy spirit to top it all of. In other words, a pretty dadgum amazing human all around.

Meghan is such a wonderful young woman and so incredibly photogenic. I’ve watched her grow from a baby into the woman she is today and I couldn’t be more proud to have been witness to such a beautiful process. I know the future holds only wonderful things for her and her amazing family!

The Woodlands has an endless supply of entertainment, food and activities available for participants of any age! From a bustling nightlife at various bars and clubs, to kid-friendly splash parks and green spaces to run wild, Market Street in particular comes to mind when I think of fun times in The Woodlands. Though we are far from December, mark your calendars to make a trip to Market Street to get some great family photos in front of their towering Christmas Tree. As a Family Photographer in The Woodlands, I’m well aware of how truly adorable these holiday sessions turn out!

Admittedly, I probably frequent a few of my favorite shops here a little too often, but we all have our vices, right? I love spending a few precious moments sniffing all the wonderful smells from Lush Cosmetics, and rarely leave without a bath bomb…or five…Love them! As an avid gym-goer, I’ve learned to love Lulu Lemon over the years. I know, it’s pricey…but you can’t beat their quality or lifetime guarantee! If you love sushi as much as my hubby and I do, you have to stop by Uni Sushi! So yummy!!

Just a short 20 minute drive from Conroe, TX lies a retail-therapy block nestled in the heart of The Woodlands teeming with shops, food and entertainment. Whether you want to catch a movie and a burger, spend the afternoon splashing around in the 24/7 splash pad with your kiddos, or grab some cocktails with your gal-pals…Market Street has everything you need to have a wonderful time.

Little blessings! I think it is the simplicity of this photo shoot that will forever warm my heart. The setting was in the comfort of the new parent’s home, and it truly captured the reality of being a new loving parent, who just can’t help but stare in awe at their new little bundle of joy! After adding a little member to your family, your heart finally feels complete, and getting to witness these emotions was just enough to melt my heart! From experience, I know that you feel like you have the entire world in your hands when holding your baby, and you just never want to let go.  So being able to do these Woodlands Newborn Lifestyle Photographer portrait sessions is really a dream come true.

The bond between them was undeniable, breathtaking, and just plain beautiful. As a mom and a The Woodlands Newborn Lifestyle Photographer, I know how crazy life can be in those first few weeks. For that reason, I love offering in-home newborn sessions. It truly is so easy on both mama and the baby this way, and I get to capture their comfy love <3

About this session

Marisa is a friend of my cousin, Alisa, so this photo shoot was close to my heart. She embraces the realities of being a new mommy, knowing that you have to do whatever it takes to make life easier on you, and I couldn’t agree more! The experience can be an emotional roller coaster, from tired days and long nights, to loving your baby so hard it hurts. Those first few months that you are a new parent can be overwhelming, but oh so rewarding at the same time. Thank you for blessing me with getting to be a part of the joy that filled this room!

Loved this sweet family. TONS. <3

When I think back on this sunny session the following words come to mind: laughter, spunk, and warmth.  It wasn’t uncommon at all to hear laughter coming from either one of the kids or their fantastic parents Casey and Alyssa.  It seems like between the seven of them there’s always something funny going on.  You can tell that this family loves to be together and there have been many beautiful moments of laughter that have filled their home. Being able to document families like this and doing The Woodlands Photography is such an honor. The opportunity to spend this precious evening in the golden light of their company was such a joy.

About this session

I say spunk next because each of the kids had a unique and infectious spirit about them.  One may be more talkative than the other, and another one might have a smirk on their face you just know means something hysterical is about to happen.  Regardless of their individual differences, you know that one thing is certain – each of them has a spirit about them that pulls you in and makes you want to have them as a friend.  I think this comes from Casey and Alyssa’s big hearts for others.  Both are ER doctors who are extremely kind and always just a phone call away for me. Casey is the doctor who got me through the years of having sub-par medical insurance he was the doctor I saw when I had appendicitis.  I’ve known this family since the youngest boy was two, and have continually seen that they are all wonderful people.

I also think of warmth when it comes to this family.  Part of that is likely the natural light coming in behind their faces.  The other part though is the warmth you can feel that exists between the parents and their kids, the joy that is between each of them.  Whether it was one of the brothers looking up lovingly at his dad, or the two teen girls walking arm in arm as step-sisters-turned-friends, you can tell there’s a beautiful warm connection between this beautiful blended family.

Thanks for letting me hang out with your family and take these photos for you all.  I’m glad I’m able share my love of photography with a family that has shared so much with me.

We took the Conroe YMCA off of Loop 336 for this sweet family photography session.  With a short 10 minute drive to North Side of The Woodlands (FM 242) and being right on the South Side of Conroe, this is a perfect location that can serve both towns right near me!

I love big families! So many sweet personalities to enjoy during this family session, from a beautiful blended family. This adorable family had such adventurous spirits and were up for anything (even the crazy fog that morning the night before Halloween)! With a family of seven (plus two adorable fur babies) life can, I’m sure, become hectic! But these beautiful people take it with ease and beauty.  I’ve known these guys for about 6 years now and they just keep getting sweeter with age.  Being able to document my friends-turned-family like this is one of the best parts of being a Fine Art Photography in The Woodlands, TX.

They chose to print one of their images on a canvas print, had it framed and hung it over the mantle- right where it belonged.  Displaying artwork, filled with tangible memories in your home for all that love you to see is truly why I do this job.  Tangible memories, literally at your fingertips, on heirloom products.  It just is the best thing in the world.

Kristin and Johnny’s patient spirits and playful personalities are perfectly suited for parenthood (and for one another). Johnny is such a fun-loving and incredible human and I do believe he was lucky to snag Kristin.  And vice versa.  A match made in heaven, perhaps?

There’s not much I wouldn’t do to hear the sweet sound of Caleb or Maddie’s laughter filling the air! It’s so clear to me that this mama and sweet daddy’s heart,  are overflowing with love and adoration for each child. It was so incredibly touching to see that each child had their own unique and personal relationship with their parents.

Although the day was foggy, that didn’t stop us from capturing some truly stunning shots. The misty air made for a perfect backdrop to get some wonderfully dreamy family and single shots. I’ll never forget this perfect morning spent in the company of an even more perfect family <3

Thank you so much, Kristin, Johnny and kids for allowing me the immense pleasure of capturing your Fine Art Photography in The Woodlands, TX!
