Houston Lifestyle Newborn Photography: What to Consider!

Houston Lifestyle Newborn Photography: What to Consider!

Achieving the “Look” Behind the Portraits

Lifestyle newborn photography is growing in popularity! Many new moms are choosing an in-home session to show off their beautiful new baby and that nursery you worked so hard on! But, how do you decide if an in-home session is right for you? Are you stuck between a studio and in-home session? There are a few things I tell my clients to think about before they make that decision.

 

Houston Newborn Photographer Houston Newborn PhotographyHouston Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Lighting

The lighting in your home is definitely one of the most important factors in creating portraits that are most like what you see in my portfolio. Natural light creates the most beautiful portraits! Take a walk through your living room, master bedroom, and nursery. If you open your curtains and blinds, but turn the lights off, what is the lighting like? Is it still bright and airy in the morning light? You could even try taking a picture of a light colored object in the room and see how it looks!

If you are lucky enough to have multiple large windows in your bedrooms, an in-home session might be a great choice for you!

Colors

Along with lighting, the color palette in your home is going to be a major factor in your decision. I’ll use my own home as an example! I have dark colors in almost every room except for the nurseries upstairs! Our master bedroom is full of dark furniture as well as our living room. I like my portraits to be light and airy so I am choosing a studio session for my own newborn portraits. The dark colors in my home will give me portraits that seem a bit darker than my normal style. In addition, if I had a home with dark furniture and less natural light, my home would not be an ideal candidate for an in-home newborn session. The end result would be fairly dim.

On the other hand, if you have a home with mostly lighter, neutral colors, your home might be a great candidate for lifestyle newborn photography!

Space

First and foremost, if you worked hard on a nursery, you’ll want to show it off! My husband always jokes that I set up a nursery just for the pictures, but it’s secretly true! I LOVE portraits in nurseries and cribs!

Most in-home lifestyle sessions are primarily done in your master bedroom and the nursery, but sometimes we also sneak into your living room! Before you choose a lifestyle session, you’ll want to consider what is actually in those rooms because it will make its way into your portraits! In my case, I have two boys aged three and under that are messy with a capital M. It will be easier for us to pack up and go to a studio than to try to clear the clutter of boys and their toy trains from every corner in my home! I mean, how is it possible that I find more toy cars under the couch cushions than in the car case?

Whatever it is that is easiest for you, is going to be the best decision for your family! I’m here to support that choice and make the magic happen behind the scenes! If you have any questions about lifestyle newborn sessions, let’s chat! Get in touch with me here!

3 Reasons to Book Maternity Portraits in The Woodlands

3 Reasons to Book Maternity Portraits in The Woodlands

I’m guilty of not getting maternity portraits with my two boys. The first was a weather/rescheduling issue, and the second, well, it just wasn’t a priority. The third time is the charm y’all! Maternity portraits were a priority for me this time and I’m so glad they were! I’m officially on team “Everyone needs maternity pictures,” but let’s take a look at why! (If you want to see my own maternity session, click here!)

One: The Memory

This one comes first for me because I think your memories are literally gold. There are not a lot of investments can you make that will make people smile for a hundred years, but photography is definitely one of those investments! Maternity portraits are for you, but they are also for your kids! In fact, all of your portraits are something tangible to pass down to your children and your grandchildren. There is nothing they will value more than being able to see how beautiful you were at such a wonderful stage of life!Woodlands Maternity Session Woodlands Maternity Session

 

Two: You’re Glowing!

Cliche, right? That’s what I thought, also!

A few weeks before my maternity session was scheduled a wise photographer told me that she too had set up a tripod and took her own maternity portraits. What surprised her was that the glow was real. She looked at herself and what her body was doing in a whole new way after she saw those portraits. All she saw was the beauty in growing a tiny human. Y’all. Every last word of that is exactly what happened after my own session! Mama, I promise you look amazing and you will love how you look!

Maternity Portraits in The WoodlandsMaternity Portraits in The WoodlandsMaternity Portraits in The WoodlandsMaternity Portraits in The Woodlands

Three: We Get to Play Dress-up!

This one really could be number 3 and 4, but I think they go together also! Mamas, how often do you get out of your athletic wear, your jeans, or your work attire, to put on something   that truly makes you feel gorgeous?  Some of us dress up for Christmas parties, or the occasional gala, but that doesn’t happen often! Your maternity portraits are just that! It is an opportunity to wear borrowed dresses made to flatter your new body! Some of my favorite dresses in my collection are from Sew Trendy and Filly Boo Maternity! Even if I don’t have a dress you love, Sew Trendy has a great referral discount that I can share with you! They everything from dresses to a gorgeous collection of flower crowns!

In addition to gorgeous dresses, maternity portraits are definitely a time to pamper yourself a little bit! Remember when you were a little girl and playing dress up meant getting into mom’s make-up? When you book a hair and make-up artist, you’re kind of reliving that! Let someone else pamper you a little bit and make you feel amazing!

Our growing family! Maternity Portraits at The Studio HTX

Our Growing Family

Maternity Portraits at The Studio HTX

It’s not often that you’ll see this, so I had to make sure that I shared! Y’all I’m putting my OWN family on the blog today! I am truly so excited to share our maternity portraits at The Studio HTX! When I was pregnant with our first baby, I booked a maternity and newborn package. It was just my luck that it SNOWED in March on the day our portraits were scheduled. I was so sad, but secretly, a little relieved. I had crazy high blood pressure with that pregnancy and the swelling was intense! I didn’t feel my best, so when our photographer offered to shoot a Fresh 48 instead of rescheduling, I took it! Fast forward to the second baby, and I didn’t even schedule maternity portraits. I don’t really have a good reason for why, I just never did!

This time, I made it a point to get it all lined up. We had a photographer, hair and make-up artist and a beautiful beach location planned. And then, it rained on two different days that we had scheduled! Then, The Studio HTX came riding in like a knight in shining white armor to save the day! Y’all. I couldn’t have loved this location more! The lighting and industrial look were everything I ever wanted!

Maternity Portraits in Downtown Houston

Y’all. This wasn’t my first choice, but it should have been! I had a vision for my own maternity portraits, but I didn’t want a location with a lot greens (like fields and trees). The beach at sunset would be gorgeous, but truthfully, I just wanted something unique. I was looking for something that “everyone” doesn’t have! I’m excited to say that the studio look is basically the things my photographer dreams are made of!

The Studio HTX-Details

The Studio HTX is a commercial photography studio minutes from downtown and walking distance to Minute Maid Stadium. The studio is painted all white with contrasting black windows and concrete floors. Two full walls of window provide beautiful lighting that completely fill the studio. I truly enjoyed shooting my own session here and can’t wait to come back with clients next month!

Becoming a Big Brother-Houston Outdoor Maternity Photographer

Becoming a Big Brother

Houston Outdoor Maternity Photographer

Oh, my goodness! This family is just the sweetest! They are expecting their first baby girl any day now, and they are going to be the cutest little family of four! This family was so natural in front of the camera!  My favorite thing to capture is these simple, candid moments as a family spends time with each other and has fun together!

I absolutely ADORE the picture of Dad and Mom swinging big brother! We started the session with the swinging image so that they could warm up to me and start with fun! Then we snuck in the classic “Christmas card pose.” Big brother is so excited to meet his little sister, and I just know he is going to be such a great helper! This sweet belly kiss is my absolute favorite pictures from this session, and I just can’t wait to see him cuddling with his baby sister after she’s born very soon!

Studio Wardrobe Collection-Maternity

The adorable dress this sweet mama is wearing is a new addition to my studio wardrobe collection. I’m so excited to offer this gorgeous (and oh-so-flattering) dress to all of my clients! You just can’t go wrong with a long, lace dress. It must be because I’m carrying a girl, but this sweet and soft blush pink is so, so pretty! I especially love those long, loose sleeves. Mama looked absolutely stunning in this one!  This dress would also be so pretty for a newborn session, especially if you have a baby girl. I know how overwhelming it can be to find the perfect outfit to wear for your maternity or newborn session, so I’m happy to offer a client wardrobe with a variety of beautiful and flattering dresses.

Waiting on Baby- North Houston Maternity Photographer

Waiting on Baby

North Houston Maternity Photographer

Have you noticed that my social media is FULL of babies and maternity sessions lately? I absolutely love being a Houston Maternity Photographer and focusing on that first year with you and your baby! If you follow my blog, you might remember that I posted a “Stock the Studio” event to add some new maternity pieces to my client wardrobe! I scheduled most of these sessions for September and have been loving every second! Many of these mamas are also due around the same time I am which has been even more fun! This particular mama is a friend from a mom’s group that I absolutely loved! (Side Note: If you have a MomsClub in your area, check it out! They are so much fun!) Janet and I are both expecting baby number three AND we were also due weeks apart with our second babies! Isn’t it funny how that happens sometimes? It looks like our babies will probably be about a month apart again! She is another “team green” mama, but big sister is predicting a baby girl!

Indoor Studio Maternity Session

Let’s face it. September in Houston is still incredibly hot. I’ve had plenty of mamas brave the heat (and humidity) outdoors, but it is also really nice to have an indoor option! There’s no sweat and no mosquitos! Major win in my book! When I updated the studio recently, I really wanted it to have a soft, neutral look. Some would call it a “light and airy” feel! I think the soft gray walls are the perfect neutral background for your maternity photos!

The Dress

I’ve said it here before, but Fillyboo Maternity makes the most beautiful dresses for expectant moms! The dress in this session is one their most popular, called the Fillyboo Wonder Years in Ivory. It has now been added to my studio wardrobe available to all of my clients. Fillyboo dresses are basically the things that photographer dreams are made out of! They are flattering and photograph beautifully. Each dress is made with details lace details or embroidery that are just incredible! They are definitely my top recommendation to moms! In fact, I bought the Fillyboo I Believe in Unicorns dress for my own maternity session! (More on that coming soon!) Also, these dresses were meant to be used by anyone, so feel free to borrow them for your family session as well!

Give Me All The Babies! Houston Baby Photographer

Give Me All The Babies!

Houston Baby Photographer

As a Houston baby photographer, my studio has been blessed with some of the absolute cutest babies ever! We all know that there is nothing cuter than a baby, but Oh My Gosh, y’all! This little man was just adorable! Baby R was all smiles and giggles for his six month sitter session!  He totally thought my peek-a-boo game was hilarious!

Six Month Sessions

Sitter sessions are something that I try to make super easy for parents. The only thing you need to plan is the date!  When baby R arrived, his outfit choices and props were all laid out and ready to go. I gave mom a selection of 5-6 choices and we narrowed it down to three rompers that were just right for him. For a little bit of texture we added in a bowl and layering pieces, like blankets. Everything he needed was provided!

One of the little things that I love about this session is his outfit from Joy Marie Clothing. He actually wore this same romper (in a smaller size) to his family beach session earlier this year! I love that it is making an appearance again because it looks adorable on him!

Houston Baby PhotographerHouston Baby PhotographerHouston Baby Photographer Houston Baby Photographer Houston Baby PhotographerHouston Baby PhotographerHouston Baby Photographer

For more information about booking your sitter session (6-8 months), follow this link to the bottom of the page!  Sitter sessions are best just a few weeks after the baby starts sitting up, but before they are crawling. I’d love to help you capture those precious milestones!

Light and Airy Maternity Session in Montgomery, TX

Maternity Session at Light & Airy Studio in Montgomery

New Light and Airy Maternity Session

I recently updated my studio, and I’m so excited about the new light and airy design! I chose to use light, neutral colors in my studio, and I love how simple and beautiful it is with soft, light spilling through the room. Using simple, neutral finishes makes the studio the perfect place for a variety of sessions, from maternity, to newborn, to family photos. It also allows me to get creative with seasonal or other décor, like with my upcoming Christmas mini-sessions.

Montgomery Light and Airy Maternity Photographer

This is the first session I did in my newly updated studio! I just LOVE how it turned out! A fresh coat paint color can really transform a room!  This cute family was so much fun to photograph, with three handsome little boys and one more sweet baby on the way. Would you believe that this is going to be baby number four? I can’t wait to find out if they’re welcoming a new baby boy or girl to their family. Sage green was the perfect colored dress for a family that is “team green!”

Studio Wardrobe for Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography

I love the simple neutral color scheme they chose for their wardrobe. The dress worn here by mama is a new addition to the studio collection. It will look great in a maternity or newborn session. Wardrobe is so important and has such a huge impact on the look and feel of your family’s photos. I’m happy to offer a client wardrobe full of pieces that photograph beautifully and are figure flattering.  Also, my amazing make-up artist came out to pamper this sweet mama. Sometimes, a little pampering is just what a mama needs! I told dad that he needs to hire a sitter  so that he can take her on a date since she looked so fantastic!

Water, and Bridges, and Trees, OH MY! North Houston Family Photography Locations

Water, and Bridges, and Trees, OH MY!

North Houston Family Photography Locations

One of the most common questions that I am asked is, “Where are your sessions?” North Houston family photography locations are usually a secret, but I also think it is important for clients (and potential clients) to get a sneak peek at your options!  I have a few favorite locations around North Houston that I go to often, but I also enjoy visiting some new places! This summer, I brought my boys with me to check out some new territory!

A Rustic, Natural Location

Rustic, natural locations are so popular, especially in this area! This particular North Houston location is great for clients who like a lot of variety in their family portraits. When we first arrive on the property there are three old houses, gorgeous trees, and a rustic fence line that provide plenty of photo opportunities. The very first antique home is all white and my absolute favorite. There is a second white house with a brown door, and a third that is more like an old log cabin! I love these homes for families and even seniors! Your family portraits would look great sitting on these front steps or underneath the tree on the wooden bench below!

Golden Light and Beautiful Water

My boys had a blast touring this area! I almost didn’t realize it was there until my husband found it by accident! The water at this location is an absolutely stunning background! As the sun was setting over the water it creates a golden glow that all photographers dream of! We would need a sunny day for that, but gosh it was perfect! There was also a willow tree (I think!) that filtered the golden light so beautifully! This particular spot at this location is a gorgeous backdrop for maternity sessions! The area reminds me of a secret garden!

Portraits at this Location– What you need to know

This location is a local favorite for family photographers. The city requires photographers to purchase a permit to shoot here, but it still can be busy during peak season. If you are booking a fall family or maternity session, I encourage you to choose a weekday for the best opportunities within this location. If you are booking a session in the spring, or late winter, this location would be great on the weekends as well! This location is so full of opportunities that you will need a Signature Collection. The permit IS included in your session.

Ready to Book?

If you love this location as much as I do, let’s go! You can check out investment/collection information or head straight over to my contact page to send me an email. I look forward to chatting with you about your next family or maternity session!

Aimee Hamilton is a North Houston family photographer with many locations in the surrounding areas!
