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.

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!

Birthday on the Beach– Galveston Photographer

Birthday on the Beach

Woodlands Cake Smash Photographer

I’ve believed all my life that a dog is man’s best friend, but there truly is nothing like the relationship between a dog and their “kid.” I’ve seen it as a dog mama and now as a photographer. Primarily, I am a Woodlands cake smash photographer, but this little session is part two of my most recent family session on the beach! This little man was able to celebrate his birthday on the beach with his very best friend! His mama called me early in the summer and said that their pup was part of the baby’s gender reveal (a cake) and so it would be just perfect if he could also be part of the cake smash. Ladies and gentleman, let me present to you, the most adorable milestone session there ever was!

Check out his little birthday outfit? I’m a sucker for a baby in suspenders, but his mama did an excellent job choosing an outfit that photographs well and coordinates perfectly. The hat on the pup just doesn’t get any better does it? For more cake smash outfit ideas, check out this adorable set! I love supporting other small business owners and getting a custom look!

Okay, this is the part that is just going to make your heart melt! Mama bought a gorgeous white cake for the boys to share. We laid out a sweet little blanket to avoid the sand and make clean up a breeze. Then, we let them dig in! I wasn’t sure he was going to like it after his first reaction, but I think he may have changed his mind!

Sometimes, we have to “hide” fruit or favorite snacks I the icing to help the baby try it, but not this guy! He dug in!

Galveston is BLUE! Galveston TX Family Photographer

Galveston is BLUE!

Galveston TX Family Photographer

I grew up in Houston and I’ve been to Galveston more times than I can count. Our water is unfortunately very brown, but that’s just way it is. I don’t remember a time that it wasn’t! As a kid, I didn’t know there was anything different! I didn’t see white sand beaches and clear water until I was in college! On Friday, before my Saturday session, I read that the water down in Galveston was clear and blue again! I seriously couldn’t wait to see it for myself. Y’all. The water really was amazing! I’ve never seen anything like it! I was so thankful to be blessed with a session on such a great day to be a Galveston TX Family Photographer!

Family Fun on the Beach

Galveston TX Family Photographer

There is something truly magical about the beach. Everyone in the family is always happy at the beach! Babies and kids are truly excited to play in the water! Smiles are genuine and joy just takes over! If you get the opportunity, take the beach location every time!

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

Hi guys! I thought we would have a little fun this summer and have a Stock the Studio Sale! This sweet girl will definitely be our last little one to join our family. I’m really looking forward to doing maternity pictures for the first time! I know there are more of you out there that would love some maternity portraits that are definitely budget friendly! If you will be 28-35 weeks pregnant in August or September, this opportunity is perfect for you!

What is a Stock the Studio Sale?

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

This is a very simple event! You will have the opportunity to purchase your favorite maternity dress from a list I have created. Then, you will receive a completely free maternity session, including digitals! After the session, your dress will be donated to the studio wardrobe in exchange for your maternity portraits.

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

Where is the list?

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

The list of dresses can be found in my private Facebook group. If you’re not on Facebook, I’m happy to email the list to you as well! The list has a wide range of prices from about $60 to $350. Each participant will be given three images for dresses under $200. (You may also purchase multiple to put you over the limit.) Participants who purchase dresses over $200 will be given 15 digitals and the ability to choose the studio or my field location. For a little sneak peek, check out Fillyboo Maternity dresses! These dresses are simply beautiful! I’m actually going to wear one for my own portraits! You can’t go wrong with one of these!

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

Magnolia Maternity Photographer

All maternity sessions will be scheduled for August or September, but sign-up will end on Friday, July 20th. I want to make sure that you have plenty of time to order your dress. Some will take longer to arrive than others, so we will need to plan accordingly. I will begin scheduling sessions when your receipt is received.

My studio is located in Magnolia, Texas near the intersection of 1488 and Tamina Road. Clients will have the ability to choose between my studio (with a light and airy look) or my outdoor field location. The field is less than 10 minutes from my studio!

Full of Joy- Conroe Family Photographer

 Full of Joy

Conroe Family Photographer

Let me start by telling you a little background about this sweet session. Y’all this session has been on the books since NOVEMBER. It is currently May!! This poor family and I had the worst luck with my friend, Mother Nature. We got rained out not once, but twice! Can you believe the luck? As we got closer and closer to their new date, I couldn’t have been more excited to see SUN in the forecast because let me tell you– their personalities and the sunshine are like peanut butter and jelly!

Conroe Family Photographer

A Joyful sound

Conroe Family Photographer

There’s nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn’t even have to matter what they’re laughing about. ~Criss Jami

This family is so full of happiness is truly was contagious! We joked, we tickled, we laughed, but most of all we had fun! I think you’ll need to see it for yourself to believe it! In the end, I think the wait made this overdue session so much sweeter! These kids came ready to play and have a good time!

A photographer’s best kept secret!

Conroe Family Photographer

The best tip I can offer before your family session is to talk to the kiddos about not smiling for the camera. As moms, we take so many photos of are kids that they become “trained” to look at us and smile. I take plenty of those, but what I really want to focus on is who your kids really are! For example, these boys are silly with a capital S, yet they are super sweet and gentle with their little sister. It’s also pretty clear that she absolutely adores them! That connection between families is what I want to shine through! Before your next family session, practice not looking at the camera! I promise you’ll love the memories you will be given.

3 Tips for a Successful Maternity Session- Conroe Maternity Photographer

3 Tips for a Successful Maternity Session

Conroe Maternity Photographer

{One} Pamper yourself! 

Pregnancy is such a beautiful stage of life! You are growing 10 fingers and 10 tiny toes, you deserve a day to relax! Before your session hire your favorite hair and make-up stylist, get a pedicure, and live like a princess! By the time our session starts you’ll feel absolutely glamorous!

{Two} Go with a Maxi! 

A maxi dress is flowy and oh-so flattering to expectant mamas! Choose one that makes you feel like you just walked off the red carpet! I have a studio collection of dresses that I always encourage you to try on first! You’re welcome to make an appointment with me and see how the dresses look.

My favorite shop for maternity dresses is Filly Boo Maternity. I just adore the boho look offered by Fillyboo! I even have two of their dresses in my studio collection.  Lace is also so beautifully feminine on maternity clients! I recently added this beautiful dress to my studio for clients to borrow!

Conroe Maternity Photographer

{Three} Book Early! 

I am one of those people who starts to swell the day I find out I’m pregnant. Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but not really! I know that if I want a maternity session, I need to do it at the end of the second trimester. Depending on your body, you may want to do the same!  It is best to start talking to me early so that we can be prepared and get you on the calendar! Some moms can’t wait until the end of their pregnancy and look stunning! You know your body best!

{Bonus} 

If you think this will be your last baby, please book a maternity session! You may not ever get to see that beautiful pregnant glow again!  One day your kids will ask to see what you looked like pregnant! Give them your best!

Motherhood Sessions The Woodlands Photographer

Motherhood Styled Sessions

The Woodlands Photographer

The Woodlands Photographer

Hi Mamas! Let’s kick off spring with a celebration of motherhood! That’s a fancy way to say grab your kiddos, meet me in The Woodlands, and let’s get you some awesome photographs with your kids! The surprise is that these will be my lowest priced mini sessions EVER. Consider them a gift from one mama to another!

When will the Motherhood Sessions take place?

May 5th! I am reserving a short period, so space will be limited.

Where will the Motherhood Sessions take place?

The answer to this is probably my favorite part! There is a brand new studio opening in The Woodlands, TX. It is on 1488 between 2978 and 242. We have been given the opportunity to be the FIRST to use the facility. Y’all its gorgeous! The catch is that it is not finished being built yet, but as soon as I can get there and take a couple quick photos, I’ll get them out asap! Picture white walls accented by white brick, large windows with natural light pouring in, and loads  open space

If you are on Instagram, you can check out the location here.

What does a styled session mean?

A styled session means that I have chosen the location and will also help you with  what to wear to coordinate with the location. Everything in the studio has white or cool neutral tones.  Neutral tones with some pops of pastel color will be beautiful on moms and littles! I can also help you with suggestions for places to look! With Easter just behind us, there will be great sales! We also will have floral crowns available for the girls! These will be an add on to your session, but I promise you want to do it!

Why a  Motherhood Session?

Check out that camera roll on your phone. How many times are in the frame with your kids? If you’re anything like me, you take pictures of your kids everyday, but it is increasingly more rare that you make it in the frame also. Let’s face it, husbands aren’t always thrilled for family pictures either. So, pamper yourself and come have some fun with me!

I encourage you make it a fun morning, get your hair or make-up done and then come kiss your babies for the camera! Motherhood sessions are meant to be a candid celebration of you and your children (or growing baby!). I actually encourage you and your kiddos to practice *not* looking at the camera. We’ll play games and focus on the love between you!

Who is a Motherhood Session for?

The Woodlands Photographer

These sessions are perfect for expecting moms wanting a maternity session, and moms with kids of all ages. Unfortunately, these are not family or extended family sessions. These are just for moms and their kiddos! Boys and girls are both encouraged!

The Details

May 5th (mid-morning hours) in The Woodlands, TX 

15 Minutes

What to Wear Guide

$150 (or $225 for all images included)

Flower Crowns are available for $40 per child & $60 for mom. Moms will have a flower comb to add an  accessory to their hair.

Why Beach Sessions? Galveston Family Photographer

Why Beach Sessions?

Galveston Family Photographer

Oh, friends! I know what you’re thinking. Why should we choose a Galveston family photographer instead of a Montgomery Family Photographer? (Hey, I’m both! ha!)  There’s plenty of places right here in our area that we can go, right?

When I think of the beach, I envision splashing, running, laughter and endless fun! Children love the beach like they love Christmas morning! It’s new (unless you go often!), unique, and provides all kids of photo opportunities.  The beach is a child’s playground without the slides and swings!


Galveston Family Photographer

Candid Family Photography: The Lifestyle Approach

I start every Galveston beach photoshoot with the family together on the dunes.  Then, we will begin playing some family games in the sand! These sessions are so much fun because the kids are excited to be there! It’s not about me or my camera, it’s about having fun as a family! In fact, my favorite part is that no one is focused on me at all! Everyone is too busy chasing kids in the water and trying not to get splashed!

Galveston Family PhotographerGalveston, TX PhotographerGalveston, TX PhotographerGalveston, TX PhotographerGalveston, TX PhotographerGalveston, TX Photographer

Beach family sessions will forever be my favorite because they are perfect for every kid. Whether you have a shy kid or the “never sits still” type, this session is for you. Personally, I have the kiddo who will run ALL OVER THE PLACE. My oldest is a big fan of the beach! I know he’s going to get out there and run as fast as he can! I truly think the beach is the perfect fit for all personality types. It can be fast paced and crazy fun, or it can be slow and relaxing! Let’s let your kiddos dictate the flow!

Aimee Hamilton is a traveling Galveston family photographer. AHP is located in Montgomery, Tx and serves The Woodlands, Montgomery, Conroe, Spring, Magnolia, and Cypress. Get in touch with AHP for more information! If you love their outfits, read more about what to wear here!
