A Walk on the Beach | Galveston Photography

A breezy evening on the beach with just the sound of your children’s laughter and the crashing waves in the background, are the only two things we need to make a little magic on the beach in Galveston. Galveston photography is the easiest and best way to get your family to relax in front of the camera and just have fun!

Galveston Photography with My Studio Wardrobe

I had so much fun on the beach with this beautiful family! Aren’t they adorable?

Ashley and I met at my studio before their session so that she could browse the studio wardrobe and select favorites for her family. Ashley’s Fillyboo dress and the baby’s romper were the perfect pieces to borrow for her vision. Baby rompers are perfect for family sessions because you don’t have to worry about holding a dress down when sitting or holding the baby. My favorite thing about rompers is that they show off precious little baby legs! This romper happens to be from one of my favorite vendors, She Loves Her Mama.

A Family Session

On the day of their shoot, we started with my usual “formal” family portraits in front of the dunes. Once we got those, we started making our way toward the water for a little more candid fun! I think it’s safe to say that the whole family enjoyed their time AND love their family portraits on the beach! I can’t wait to hear what Ashley does with her images!

Aimee is absolutely amazing! She made the entire process super easy. We did a family beach shoot, and I could not believe how wonderful they turned out! She has a great client wardrobe selection as well and knows the shots she is going for. so there is no time wasted. 100% recommend her!- Copied from Ashley’s Google Review

Baby Laurel | Studio Newborn Photography in Houston

Hello, hello! I think it’s been a while since I blogged a newborn, hasn’t it? The story of how I met this sweet family is actually FAR from photography and more into the college-bar-scene era of our lives. Kirby and I stayed friends over the years and reconnected at Christmas time last year when I took their families photos at the tree farm. You might remember her because she makes THE best cookies I’ve ever tasted. I went on and on about that on my FB page last year. If you’ve booked a Christmas mini this year, you’re in for a treat! Anyway, Kirby booked her studio newborn photography in Houston and I was so excited to have the honor of photographing this beautiful baby girl!

Baby Laurel’s Newborn Session

Laurel’s session is such a good one for families to see, because they have a “bigger” family. Laurel is the new baby sister to two big brothers and a younger sister as well. Their session was just beautiful, but I’ll you guys have a look, too!

Copied from Kirby’s Google Review– Aimee did an amazing job with my newborn AND three other kids (ages 6, 5 and 3). She was so calm and new exactly how to respond in every situation. She never made us feel rushed and even included my parents for grandparent photos. She accommodated every request I had without hesitation. She helped me with outfits for everyone and had so many options for myself and my newborn daughter. I’ve done newborn photos four times now and she has by far provided the BEST final product and overall experience. If you are on the fence about who you will hire – I encourage you to contact Aimee and talk with her. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I am a motherhood photographer specializing in studio newborn photography in Houston, TX. I love helping my clients achieve their portrait visions with heirloom products that will stand the test of time! Get in touch with me here to inquire about your booking own newborn portraits of membership plan.

Family Photography Wardrobe Inspiration| Houston Family Photography

Hello, hello! There are only a handful of questions that every family asks, but “what should we wear” is always one of them! One of my favorite things about Houston family photography is that we have the ability to wear almost anything! When you’re ready to start thinking about your clothing for your portrait session, I’ll be ready to help you! Each session booked (newborn, family, etc) comes with one in-person studio consultation to chat about your vision and your wardrobe! I also still really love this blog post with some excellent styling tips!

The Client Closet | Houston Family Photography Wardrobe

It’s been about 18 months since I started my studio wardrobe for Houston family photography. It has been such a game changer for my clients! Each time I add something new to the wardrobe, I fall more in love with the collection. I love providing clothing for my clients that is flattering, versatile, and photographs beautifully! Currently, I have clothing for women in sizes small to extra large, and children (both boys and girls) wearing a 4T and under. You’ll just need to bring basic undergarments and neutral shoes! I even have ivory knee high socks for girls and a few bows!

Where to Shop

Women

Mamas, I LOVE to see you in lace or florals!

Men

Pro Tip: Dad’s outfits are usually the easiest ones to find! Shop for them last!

Girls

Girl Mom Tip: Knee high socks are seriously making a come back and I love seeing your girls in them! Don’t forget shoes, bonnets, or bows, too!

Boys

Boy Mom Tip: Boy accessories are hard to nail down, but SO worth it when you do! Think hats, suspenders, boy ties, etc!

A Little Inspiration for Houston Family Photography

Okay, so we’ve got the client closet, and a list of places to look for high quality clothing. Let’s see some inspiration, too! My number one tip is to have fun and play with accessories! They can really make your outfit. Finally, watch you’re patterns. I suggest having no more than one pattern in a family. For example, if mom is wearing a floral gown, I would keep everyone else in solid colors. We can add texture (like tulle in your daughter’s dress or linen in your son’s pants) to add some pop!

How to book your family session

If you have not booked your session with me, yet, I’d love to chat with you more! You can view all of my family photography details here! I am only accepting a small number of families this fall, so be sure to book your session early! I would love to meet you at my studio to discuss your family and your vision for your family portraits! Pre-session consults are a great way to get to know me, my style, and make sure your portrait vision comes to life! I hope to meet you soon!

Baby Hudson | The Woodlands Maternity & Newborn Portraits

Hi y’all! I’m popping in on the blog this morning with the sweetest dual sessions! The Woodlands maternity & newborn portraits are my most popular sessions, but I don’t think I’ve shared enough of those sessions with you! Baby Hudsons’ mama booked her maternity and newborn portraits early this year and then we got to work planning!

The Woodlands Maternity Portraits

All of my sessions include my studio wardrobe, but this maternity session was SO special to me. I shopped for this particular dress for quite a while before I lucked out and found just *one* available at Nordstrom! Shelby came in the studio to try on dresses and I could hardly contain my own excitement when she chose this one! On the day of her winter maternity session, she looked like a princess! I just love how golden this location looks in the winter months!

Double The Do works closely with me and my clients to make them feel beautiful before their session. They definitely outdid themselves with this session!

The Woodlands Newborn Session

Baby Hudson made his debut and he is the CUTEST little thing! (I mean did you see his big brother, Owen?! Those boys are just so precious!) This newborn session was the first time that Double the Do and I worked out a new way to make this process EASY for new mamas. Y’all. It doesn’t get any easier than this! The girls from Double the Do will come to the studio on the morning of the session! That means you don’t have to worry about anything before you leave the house! Pack some diapers and wipes and just head out the door! Seriously– I have everything else you need! (Actually… I even have the diapers and wipes, but I know I was picky about those things as a new mama!)

These beautiful newborn portraits are definitely some that you have to see! I say this about every session, but these are definitely a favorite.

Sterling’s First Birthday | Houston Cake Smash Photographer

I think at every first birthday for my kids I have literally been heartbroken that the baby stage is over. WHY does it have to go so darn quickly?! When this cutie turned one, I couldn’t wait to get him and his precious big brother in the studio for a cake smash! First birthday pictures with this Houston cake smash photographer are just easy going and fun!

First Birthday Pictures- Before the Cake Smash!

I like to start every birthday session with just some simple and clean pictures of the birthday boy. I ask my parents to choose an outfit from my wardrobe and then we get started! It’s just super simple and easy going for the kids. I also have some classic toys to give them to play with during their shoot. Typically, most kids will let us go through about 2 wardrobe changes before we bring out the cake. Lately, I have been photographing the babies in a classic outfit and then just a diaper cover before the smash. Those baby rolls just won’t be there forever and I know you all love them!

My studio wardrobe is included in every session. It features clothing from Jamie Kay, Joy Marie Clothing, She Loves Her Mama, Zara, and more!

The Cake Smash!

What’s a cake smash without the cake, right? A while ago, I spilled my cake smash photography secret and so far its still holding true! Babies know what a high chair is and they go straight for it! It’s even more fun when there are older siblings around to have fun with the cake, too! These simple white cakes must be delicious!

How to Book with the Houston Cake Smash Photographer

Aimee Hamilton is a Houston cake smash photographer with a studio just north of The Woodlands although she does offer both indoor and outdoor cake smashes. I recommend booking your session 6-8 weeks before the date you would like and about a month before the first birthday! For more detailed information, including pricing, click here!

Newborns, Special Needs, & Santa

Christmas 2018, I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl. In the middle of flu season, I lived on hand sanitizer and prayers. This season, I have reserved the first few sessions for newborns and children with special needs who may thrive with a bit fewer people around. If you fit in this category, please contact me separately as those time slots are temporarily locked.

Baby Weston | Newborn Photography in The Woodlands

It’s not every day that a Dad is the one to call and book newborn photography in The Woodlands, but I can’t tell you how sweet it was to hear this guy talk about his wife and brand new baby. He set everything up for her so that all she had to do was come with this sweet baby boy! Brownie points for him, right? (Now… if my own husband would set up family pictures for us, I would literally pass out.)

“Older” Newborn? No Problem!

Sweet baby Weston was already a week old when his Daddy booked his newborn session so he was a bit “older” than my typical 6-10 day old babies. Anytime I get older babies, I tell moms and dads that some older babies do great and some just aren’t into the naked poses, but I always try. Weston was a champ! When he got here, his mama gave him a nice fully tummy and then he slept for the rest of the session! Every now and then, he’d give me a little smile to say he was on to my tricks! Isn’t he just the cutest?

When Grandparents Are in Town to Help…

Y’all, I can’t resist throwing grandparents into a shot or two when they come with you to help! They’re never prepared for it, which is probably my favorite part, but oh my gosh, I LOVE it! I get a lot of Grandmas who come with their daughters for support, but oftentimes Grandpa isn’t present. This time. Grandma and Grandpa came to help out! He was the proudest grandpa I’ve ever seen! He took just as many pictures as I did!

Want to Book Your Own Session?

The best time to book studio newborn photography in The Woodlands is right around the second trimester. It’s the best way to ensure availability on my calendar. If you are expecting a fall baby, it is especially important to book early as that is a very busy time! For detailed information, including investment information, click here!

Where to Buy PJs

I’ve heard lots of fantastic places to buy Christmas PJs lately! I always like to encourage you to buy from small business owners first! If you are in need of PJs this year, check out Zandy Zoos. I just adore this boutique and I guarantee they will have everything you need! The shop owner is so sweet and can help you find anything! If you like big, fluffy, southern bows, you can find Beyond Creation Bows there also! If you prefer smaller, more classic bows, Willow Crowns is your girl! I personally have far too many of both of their bows!

Christmas Products

After your session, I’m happy to help you create Christmas cards, mini-accordion albums for Christmas gifts, ornaments, or a canvas to hang on your walls! I think it would be so fun to hang your Christmas images year after year and watch your kids (and families) grow!

When you are ready to book your session, head over here! The studio is located just a few short minutes north of The Woodlands! Feel free to send me an email with any other questions that you may have!

Houston Newborn Photography | Studio Newborn Photography

When I moved into my new brick and mortar studio this year, I knew I’d love it. What I didn’t know is just *how much*! My job in Houston newborn photography is really like my 4th kid, its a big deal to me. Most of all, I want my clients to feel welcome, comfortable, and relaxed! I really try make this effortless for my clients . So far, everyone who comes to the new studio just raves about how much they love the studio and the experience. I’m grateful to be able to provide an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere for my clients, which brings me to this sweet session that I will definitely never forget!

Toddler Siblings, Anyone?

My job title here is Houston newborn photographer, but at home, I’m Mom. And I just happen to be a mom of three babies that are each 21 months part. Right now, they are 4,2, and 5 months which means I know the toddler/new sibling dynamic very well.

Many of the new babies who come to me have at least one older sibling. In some cases, those sweet siblings are just babies themselves. I mean to me, a two year old is still a baby because they really are snuggly! Anyway, this session was right around Easter. I still had a few Easter eggs filled with treats for kids laying around the studio. Wouldn’t you know it, those eggs were the best thing ever! The candy inside wasn’t even the best part– it was THROWING the eggs as FAR as we could between family shots! And that kid’s got an arm on him! Ha! Whatever it takes to make the kiddos happy is exactly what we’re going to do, even if it means an egg throwing contest in a newborn photography studio!

Houston Newborn Photography Studio

If you are considering newborn photography with me, I would love to show you around the studio and teach you a little bit more about a newborn session with me! In addition to providing all of the props, wraps, and headbands for your session, I also have a client wardrobe for mom and younger siblings. My studio is north of Houston in Magnolia, TX. I am just a short drive north of The Woodlands, TX with easy access to I-45.

For more information about booking a newborn session or membership plan, be sure to head over to this page and be sure to mention the JULY maternity/newborn combo special when you get in touch with me!
