Houston Indoor Lifestyle Family Photography | The Anderson Family

Words cannot describe what this family means to me. They are long term friends of mine, and I am so unbelievably blessed to have them in my life. John’s wife passed away in June 2015, and she was a very well-known and very talented newborn photographer. Jamie was such a close friend to me, and such an inspiration. Being a Houston indoor lifestyle family photography artist has been heavily influenced by sweet Jamie. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her influence and guidance.

Welcoming Natalie into the Fold

John has recently found the next love of his life and I could not be any happier for this wonderful man. This session was his new and amazing wife’s bridal shoot, along with their “engagement” pictures. I couldn’t help but to be in awe of this gorgeous and talented woman, Natalie. Not just because she is breath-takingly beautiful, but because the aura she gives off is so sweet and kind natured. I’m seriously ecstatic for John and this new chapter in his life.

A Stunning Family

John and Natalie’s session was joined by their precious children. Aubree, the youngest, was full of energy and such a personality! This little one was so silly and had a lot of fun throughout the session. One thing that I loved about this session was the amazing decorations throughout the home. Natalie has the BEST taste in home décor and works at Ethan Allen in The Woodlands (18390 Interstate 45S, The Woodlands, Tx).
Their home was a dream come true, and made it such a beautiful place to have a session! Natalie and John have such a great connection, and you can see their loving chemistry in nearly every photo. I adored the images we captured of them sitting in side-by-side smiling and laughing at one another. It was also so fun to see the kids playing and giggling with each other!
This sweet family has been through some tough times, but I am so thrilled to see that they have found their happiness. I know Jamie is so happy to see that such a wonderful woman, such as Natalie, has entered their lives. Congratulations to John and Natalie! If you are interested in booking a session with a Houston Indoor Lifestyle Family Photographer, please email me, or simply click here!
This family is so incredibly near and dear to my heart. Capturing their Houston Indoor Lifestyle Family Photography was such an honor!

Stress Free Conroe Family Session with Older Children | The DeGeorgio Family

Stress Free Conroe Family Session with Older Children | The DeGeorgio Family

Stress Free Conroe Family Session with Older Children | The DeGeorgio Family

Meet the DeGeorgio family, some of the most fun and caring folks that I have ever met! Adina, a sweet mom of two, won athlete of the month over at the gym I attend and I was honored to be their Conroe family photographer that evening!  This family is part of my fit fam over at CrossFit Willis, and I love being able to capture sweet moments for these people who are so dear to me. It’s families like these that remind me how blessed I am to provide stress free Conroe family sessions with older children.

The DeGeorgio’s

Adina and her husband are seriously some of the most fun parents I have ever met! They have two teenage daughters, and I just loved the chemistry between the four of them. It is obvious that they are very close, and are always laughing and playing jokes on each other! We all know that teenagers can sometimes drift away from their parents, but the DeGeorgio’s have really stuck together as a team through thick and thin. I love that about them!

Their Outdoor Session

We chose to do a candid session in a beautiful field right off of FM 1097 in Willis (just about a short 15 minute drive from The Woodlands, and about 40 minutes from North Houston). The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, especially trees in the background. They curved inwards, which made for the perfect natural frame around the family. Not to mention, there were dandelions, and there is nothing more fun than making wishes and blowing on them in the wind!
I always try to create a stress-free environment for my clients. In order to do this, I encourage them to be themselves, have fun, and play as much as possible. After all, this is the best way to get those natural smiles. The DeGeorgio’s had no problem being themselves, and had a blast throughout the session, especially Dad! He is hilarious, and constantly making his girls laugh. I loved the images I was able to get of them in the moment laughing at each other, and at the gym, he has everyone in stitches, too.  What great memories they will be able to cherish forever!
This is such an amazing family! I love capturing Stress Free Conroe Family Session with Older Children. Especially when they’re as hilarious as these four!

Clothing Store Recommendations for The Woodlands Family and Newborn Photography

Clothing Store Recommendations for The Woodlands Family and Newborn Photography

When it comes to preparing for a session with your photographer, wardrobe is such a huge component, as it can totally affect the outcome of your photos. Are you stuck on what you and your family should wear for your newborn or family session?

Here are 4 ideas on great places that will provide the perfect wardrobe you are looking for!

1. My client wardrobe – I have invested in a wardrobe for my clients to use, if needed or wanted! This wardrobe is free for all clients to use. It includes tops, bottoms, and mostly maxi dresses that compliment any body type.  I have sizes for women that range from 2-12 and if you are interested in wearing pieces from my wardrobe, be sure to contact me if you want to schedule a wardrobe consult.
2. Free People – Free People has a vintage, classic look that tends to flatter nearly all body types. They can be a bit on the pricy side, but sometimes have great sales online and in stores. If you like floral, lace, and flowy clothing, this is the store for you.  You can visit this store locally, in The Woodlands Mall (located at 1201 Lake Woodlands Dr, The Woodlands, Tx 77380) right off the freeway, or visit their website to view their beautiful, high end pieces! <3
3. ASOS – This clothing brand was originally meant to portray clothing that was “as seen on screen,” or styles that were worn for celebrities. ASOS offers the most recent styles, geared for adults in their 20’s. Shop here if you want the current trends to be portrayed in your sessions.  This website is online and I believe based out of the UK.  You can visit their website here.  And be sure to always check their sale items.  Beautiful pieces for affordable prices!!
4. Old Navy (for kids) – Old Navy is a well known store that offers affordable clothing that is not only adorable, but comfortable for your kiddos. Their goal is to appeal to it’s customers with fun, fashion, and value.  They have a store located in The Woodlands in the Portofino Center (19075 Interstate 45 S, Shenandoah, Tx 77385) and one in Conroe at the Conroe Marketplace (2908 I45 N, Conroe, Tx 77303).  You can also shop styles conveniently online!
5. Gap (for kids) – Gap is similar to Old Navy, but slightly more pricey. There’s more bang for your buck, though, because the clothes will last longer than most. They are known to have classic styles that tend to stick around for several generations, as well as trendy options that go with the current times.  Gap Kids is located at the Premium Outlets in Cypress (29300 Hempstead Rd, Cypress, Tx 77433) if you need to get something quick, but their online selection is so convenient and a wealth of really amazing styles.

Maternity Photography The Woodlands Tx | Wright Family

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!!

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.

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.

 

Make sure to keep on the lookout for more family friendly spots to take the whole gang in The Woodlands, TX!
