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

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.

So many laughs, smiles, and memories made during this family session! It was so much fun to capture this amazing family because I go to the gym with Rachel and Hali! I think that made them super comfortable in front of the camera. It gave me the opportunity to capture their true personalities! This was the perfect time for them to update their family portraits since the kids are growing up so quickly. They are some of the sweetest and most beautiful people I have ever met as a The Woodlands Family Natural Light Photographer – inside and out!

About the Wood Family

It was very important to showcase the bond that they have with one another. So I let them be silly and just interact with one another while I took tons of pictures! You can really tell how much they all mean to one another! The best part of it all was that they had every single-family member participate – including their little dog! Their little fury friend is a big part of their life, so we couldn’t dare leave him out! It was so sweet to watch them play together, and I know it will mean a lot to them for many years to come. I can already see these being framed all around their house and bringing them many smiles!

The Woodlands Family Fun | The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

I have had so many fun times at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion over the years. From girl’s nights out, to Christmas concerts with my kiddos, there’s always some The Woodlands family fun going on in The Woodlands! So many beautiful memories have been made under that big white tent!

My husband is a HUGE James Bond fan, and they actually have an event coming up next week with the Houston Symphony playing all the theme songs from all the Bond movies over the years. How fun! One of my favorite Halloween traditions is taking my little ones to see the Houston Symphony play all the scary Halloween tunes. There’s always plenty of giggles and tons of candy. What more could a kid want, right?! Last year, I took my mom to the Christmas concert put on by Michael W Smith and Amy Grant. What an absolutely wonderful time we had! Funny story, one of my first dates in high school was to the The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to see John Mayer. Oh memories… where in the world would we be without sweet images to take us back in time to wonderful evenings and happy days.

One of the best things about the The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is the affordability of their lawn seats. Bring a blanket, some snacks and lots of sunscreen! You’re sure to have an amazing time at any of the countless concerts from their 2017 lineup!

The Woodlands Family Fun

I absolutely love capturing the love and happiness that flows through so many families in The Woodlands, TX.

Hope you’ve had an absolutely beautiful week! The weather in The Woodlands and Conroe has been super crazy and warm all week and I am posting this session in hopes to bring back the cooler weather just for a few days!!!!! Hey there sweater weather, you there?!!  But I am also very excited for the spring and all the beauty that there is for Woodlands and Conroe Family Photography!!

Speaking of sweater weather, take a peek at this beautifully styled fall family photography session I had the honor to shoot this past month. I just love this family. Tawni is such an incredible friend to me and always makes me look so fab over at her salon.  And it was such a fun experience getting to see how all three of these generation interact with each other. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, posed pictures are great and definitely have their purpose and place….BUT! My absolute favorite shots are the ones where I get to capture the true personalities of each family.

It seriously brought tears to my eyes to see Grandma steal a kiss from Grandpa. Can you imagine how much love must be bursting from these two’s hearts!? Just picture, all of these happy and healthy souls have you to thank for their everything.

If you’re lucky enough to still have your grandparents in your life take the time to give them a quick jingle, I promise you, it’ll make their day. Seriously… Go call them!… I’ll wait…

“No man has ever lived that had enough of children’s gratitude or woman’s love.” – William Butler Yeats

Have a beautiful day guys. Much love <3

Montgomery County Tx Family Photographer – O’Leary Family

Montgomery County Tx  Family Photographer – O’Leary Family

Pink sun dresses…Ruffled collars….Monogrammed initials…Could we possibly get any girlier?! How about we throw in two gorgeous little ladies, add a handsome daddy to wrap around their tiny pinkies and a beautiful mommy all dressed in white. A fairy tale you say?… I’d have to agree, but to the O’Leary family– this is simply the life they’ve been blessed with.  It’s a true joy to be able to serve my community and documenting their precious moments.  Being a Montgomery County Tx Family Photographer has also blessed me with special souls such as these.

We did one quick outfit change on the littlest princess and off we were on an adventure. Let’s take a second to stop and appreciate the earthy goodness of this field…Yum!!! Could you possibly imagine a more perfect tree-lined path, with more perfect lighting for a more perfect family?! I’m beginning to see a trend here..  we took to the wide open fields of Montgomery, Tx right next to Fernland Historical Park and Ransom’s Steakhouse right off of HWY 105.  Fernland is nestled right next to the Montgomery County Library and provides such a unique setting for a family portrait session.

I love playing games with the children throughout family portrait sessions. It lightens things up a bit and gets their gigglers going. My favorite game has to be having mommy and daddy lift a blanket high in the air and have the littles sprint under. (Is it just me or are you having flashbacks to Friday’s in elementary gym class??…Ohhh…Parachute day…. Best. Day. Ever.) Aaaanywho.. This game never fails to yield perfect looks of pure joy on the kiddos faces. A child at play is a truly beautiful thing to behold, don’t you think?

It was an honor getting to know and work with this family. I am so grateful for each and every one of my clients and the opportunity I get to sneak in and steal a picture of the beauty that is their world. Enjoy.

The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session – Stampes

The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session – Stampes

Talk about two beautiful boys! This family was such fun to photograph. The faces their littlest one made cracked. me. up.!!  Momma better watch out! Carter’s already got his “come and get me” look down pat! Of course, his big bro did his very best to steal the show (and I have to admit, I didn’t mind one little bit).  The personality in this one is huge!! He had me in a constant fit of giggles– Like, for real.. Too presh… This was everything I love and more with a The Woodlands Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session.  We took to their beautiful apartment off of FM 2978 and The Woodlands Parkway nestled in the back of the Woodlands, Tx.  It was a dream much like this beautiful family was <3

With a 20 minute drive to The Woodlands Mall, and Market St, The Woodlands is always such a fun and beautiful place to do pictures.  When it’s in my client’s home, it’s just all the better.

We had both of the boys all in white, with mom draped in a lovely taupe and white striped dressed, paired perfectly with her handsome hubby dressed in a gorgeous shade of dove gray. This truly beautiful family looked absolutely breathtaking while bathed in floods of perfect natural lighting…Swoon!!

This kind of lighting gives such a fresh, clean feel to the sessions. I can’t help but equate this with the feeling these two parents must be having right about now. A new baby has a tendency to do that to you. It gives you the chance at a fresh start. A new beginning. You have the great responsibility and honor to mold and shape these little humans. A life full of possibilities lie at the very tips of their ever-so-delicate fingers. And I have a feeling this world will be a more wonderful place because of these two little men.

The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer – Alvarez Family

The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer – Alvarez Family

This sweet family truly was up for anything! I was able to have so much fun getting these natural shots. While positioning families has it perks and place, I genuinely adore getting to capture the true personality of the family, in its own element. Every family has its own dynamics, identity, and style. And let me be the first to say– I am LOVING this family’s style.  Sp being a The Woodlands Outdoor Family Photographer, it was a true honor to document this special time for them!

I can’t help to think this session would be perfectly suited for Amelia Earhart, if Amelia Earhart had a big-beauti(full) family. Filled with beautiful gals, and a couple genuine dapper dans. Mom expertly decided to style the whole group in fresh white linen tops, paired perfectly with khaki bottoms. And that sunset behind them in the street?.. Oh geeze, be still my heart! This is the stuff dreams are made of guys!!

We took to Fernland Historical Park (well, really, the Montgomery, Tx fields surrounding it) for this adorable family session.  I am also super pumped to shoot their wedding at Big Sky Barn in Montgomery in 2017.  Montgomery is about a 20-30 minute drive from the Woodlands and is a classic “Texas” look.  With its big rolling plains, the founding spot of the Texas flag, and conveniently located in the middle of Conroe, The Woodlands, and Montgomery, it’s always a beautiful spot to choose from!

Of course it was amazing to see how much fun the family so obviously has together. What was truly touching though, was to see how, even after four kiddos and what I can imagine is a pretty busy life, these two have still remained lovebirds. I have no question that life is going to be chalked full of fun, love and laughter for this beautiful family and am nothing short of honored to be able to know the Alvarez family.
