A Look Back at Fall Family Pictures in Houston

It might be a million degrees outside here in Houston, but fall is right around the corner, which means the busiest season for a family photographer. Not only is the studio busy in the day with our normal maternity, newborn, and baby sessions, but the evenings become full with beautiful families outdoors in the field. Now is the time to contact us to get your family portraits on the calendar.

In fact, there is so much to do to care for our family session clients in the fall, that most sessions never get shared here! I’m going to be spending the next few weeks sharing as many of last year’s Houston family photography sessions as I can. I know that choosing someone to trust with your family’s legacy is a big deal and you want to know what you are going to get!  Here’s what I can promise:

A Stress-free Experience

Believe me, I KNOW family pictures can be stressful, but we have reinvented the way to approach sessions so that my team and I handle absolutely everything for you. We will dress you, do your hair and make-up, and we’ll even bring the snacks to help entice an uncooperative 2 year old to cuddle with his sister.

You’ll Love Your Images

Anyone can show you a portfolio of 1-2 amazing shots from a session, but I promise you a gallery full of keepers. If you are ever curious what a complete session looks like, I’m happy to share! My blog posts usually contain about 1/3 of the images delivered.

More than a Disk or a Christmas Card

I know the Christmas card is big catalyst for scheduling a family portrait session in the fall (and boy do we have some beautiful ones to choose from!), but we strive to create imagery that will last far beyond the holidays. We document your family’s legacy and create tangible ways to honor each stage of your children’s life. Digital images are just a happy side-effect.

If your children are growing in front of your eyes, I would love to talk to you about creating a collection of natural and organic baby or family portraits. Please contact me to begin planning your session.

Our family photography sessions take place at our field in Houston and feature your family laughing, playing, and cuddling together. We believe that honest and authentic portraits where your children are free to be themselves are the best way to capture each stage. We seek out genuine smiles and laughter over saying cheese and cherish those tiny moments of motherhood of sweeping hair off their forehead and give your partner that look that says “see how lucky we are to have them”. Family sessions with us are stress free and easy, allowing you to just focus on loving each other. You have many options when looking for Houston family photographers, and we would love to talk to you and see if we are a great fit to work together.

We are currently booking sessions for fall 2018. We would love to work alongside of you to document your family at this stage. We work with families across the Houston area of create timeless and simple portraits of their children, as well as beautiful artwork to adorn their home.

Fresh Light Photography specializes in newborn, maternity, baby, family, and child photography in Houston, including the Heights, West University Place, River Oaks, and The Woodlands.
