MJ’s photography is a Carlton Woods Family photographer that services the Houston, Katy, Cypress, and Fulshear area.
This family is so special to me! I met them back when we lived in East Texas (Hallsville) and now they live in College Station and I live in Houston. They travel to me and it makes me feel so special! I love getting to update their family portraits each year in Katy, Texas.
Look how adorable these twin boys are!! They are so different in personality and looks. Can you tell who gave me a run for my money? Well it’s both ha ha! They are full of energy.
I love capturing mom and dad alone. It rarely ever happens after you have little ones! Look how gorgeous mom looks in this black dress! She sent me a sneak of it and I was over the moon!
Here are some family favorites from their session. I love so many! Which is your favorite?
Funny story, every session we have ever done, the boys have to included sticks…so here you go! Boys and sticks! Daddy loves it too. Houston Boutique photographer

Selena called me after her little princess was already born and we had to get her in quick! I’m so glad she called me, because they turned out amazing!
Look at this gorgeous piece of wall art coming her way! All the way from Europe. Each wood piece is hand crafted and customized for each client.
Ezlyn gets to have her own wall art collage for above her crib! I cannot wait to see it hung up. Did you know that MJ comes and hangs every piece of wall art for you? We are a full service photography business.
Avesta with Avesta Hair and Makeup came to do hair and makeup for momma for her portraits. I love how mom gets to get pampered before her session. Having a newborn is so exhausting, so just having to show up at the newborn studio right out of bed is a WIN!
Doesn’t mom look stunning?
Daddy and his little girl. So perfect.
First family portraits! These are so special.
Momma wanted holiday cards to send out to family. Tell me she isn’t the cutest thing you have ever seen! Her little Santa sack is perfect for Christmas.
Here are some more favorites from Ezlyn’s gallery.
Here eye contact made this portrait perfect! I got to use my new heart bowl on her session.
This little chin pose in a bucket is my favorite! I am obsessed.
MJ’s Photography is an August Lakes Texas photographer that services the Houston area.
This family wanted their family portraits done on their property near Weston Lakes. Their driveway was gorgeous and perfect for pictures! Avesta came by to do momma’s makeup and hair and both sisters hair! It’s so nice to get all dolled up for portraits. You deserve this experience!
We did each of their little ones individually and they rocked it! Look how cute they all look.
Cruz took a little convincing, but he did amazing! Look how stunning his momma is!
Look at these sweet sisters together! August Lakes Katy Texas photographer. These two are beautiful!
Of course I had to get a sibling shot. Mom did so good on their outfits! I love them! Little Cruz in between his sisters.
Mom and dad needed some solo shots together. I am so in love with how they turned out. I can’t’ wait to see these in person!
Here are some candid family shots in their driveway. I really love how they turned out. The golden sun really showed off this day. I love the golden hour portraits! Isn’t momma gorgeous in her couple portaits?
Here are some more favorites from their family portrait session in Katy.
Momma took the time to write out a letter to her sweet son….cue the tears!
A letter to my son.
I cannot express to you enough how much I love you and how much better my life is with you in it. I have been hoping and praying for you since before you were even born. Before I was even in high school, I knew in my heart I would be a mother someday. Even more so than that, I knew my heart would be filled through adoption. As a child myself, I dreamed of who you might be. I imagined life with you. I imagined what your first steps would be like. I imagined what our bedtime routine would be. I imagined how loving and kind you would be. Before I was a foster mom, I knew someday I would be your forever mom, I just did not know you yet. Every single day through the licensing process I held onto the hope and prayer that someday my forever child would come through those doors. Through each high and low of fostering, I held onto that truth that you were out there somewhere.
In April of 2019 I received the message, “blind 2-year-old in shelter needs home.” I did not know if you were a boy or girl, what you looked like, or who you would be. I did not know then that you would be forever. All I knew that was that a child needed a home, and something in my heart told me without a doubt my home was yours. The first picture I received of you was a hospital picture as you were very sick. I studied every inch of your face and how beautiful you were. I looked at your picture each night and prayed for your healing and that you would thrive in my home as I awaited your arrival. My heart ached that you were in the hospital without a mom to hold your hand.
In May you finally moved in, but by then you already had my heart. From the day you arrived I struggled with the idea that you would someday leave and began to pray we would both be at peace however your case ended. From the second I saw you I knew there was something different about you. Everything in me knew you were meant to be my son. The worker who dropped you off from the shelter was in awe at how quickly you clung to me and snuggled into my chest. He explained that no one had been able to touch you because you were too scared, and that you must have sensed something in me to feel safe so quickly. I like to believe you sensed that I was meant to be your mom, too. Every second from that day forward was filled with joy. Even on our hardest days you radiated joy. Over the next year, I felt a wholeness in my heart that I never knew existed before – like everything was truly right.
In March of 2020, the biggest relief imaginable came when the judge ordered we move to adoptions! This child who I had imagined and dreamed of, this child who I prayed so hard for, this child who I hoped for each and every day, you were here! At first it was so surreal and almost seemed impossible… What I knew in my heart for the past year was finally a reality. Just 6 months later our adoption was finalized! September 29, 2020 will always be the day the light of my life became my forever son. I can not fathom life without you. Every single time I look at you I am in awe at how perfect you are. Every smile and every laugh ignites joy beyond measure in my heart. Every night I hold you as you drift off to sleep I am overwhelmed with feelings of peace. Every step you take, every milestone you reach, every new skill you learn, I am inspired. You are everything. I am beyond grateful to call myself your mom, and will wake up each day for the rest of my life blessed with your presence and excited to see what adventure awaits us!
With all the love in the world,
Here are some more pictures from Junie’s adoption session! We travelled to San Antonio to capture these in front of the Court house that his adoption should have been at! Sadly Corona made it virtual.

Junie is seriously the sweetest little boy I have ever met. He kept running up to me and asking for a hug. You are just drawn to his kind and caring soul.
These in front of the courthouse are so special! I adore how these turned out.
His smiles are priceless.
Junie LOVESSSS his matcha drink. So what did we do after the session? We went to STARBUCKS! He was so excited!

Tell me she isn’t just stunning! I am so obsessed with her maternity portraits. This one just captivates me. The black and white is just amazing! It brings all of the attention to her gorgeous features.
Kasey is expecting her first son and they are so excited about seeing him.
I’m such a black and white fine art portrait fan…not everyone is, but these two sure loved the black and whites and it made me giddy! Gah she just looks so beautiful!
What about you guys? Are you a color or black and white fan?
I told them to trust me on this one with a white background and I’m so glad they did. They turned out perfectly.
Look how perfect these two are. You know when you meet a couple and you can just tell that their love is so true? That was these two.
She is stunning in this lace maternity gown. I love how it shows off her pregnant belly perfectly.
I can’t with this one! Favorite!!!
Here are some more favorites from Kasey’s indoor maternity portraits in the studio.

I love watching these babies grow. It is my greatest joy to get to capture memories for a family over and over. This sweet girl has seen me twice already! She is one and momma wanted a lemon themed cake smash. I’m so obsessed.
So obsessed with this cake from Intoxicating creations. So gorgeous. And it tasted amazing.
Look at her! That little finger lick and those little toes popping out, I am so in love. She is perfect. She was all about that cake.
Look at her little thighs! Aaaahhhhh. Ellie is the cutest. Yellow is her color! This was such a fun first birthday/cake smash session.
All the smiles when momma started playing with her. Look at those little curls on that sweet head. She’s just a doll!
I can’t handle this one! That grin is just perfect. And that tiny little thigh roll just adds to the sweetness.
This outfit on Ellie is AMAZING! So amazing that momma had to go buy one after the session ha ha! Here is the link if you are looking for the best little girls dresses.

Sweet Addison did amazing for her newborn portraits. She has the most perfect glowing skin.
Big brother Jaxson wasn’t so sure at first, but he ended up doing great! At two years old, you never know what to expect. I’m in love with them all!
I always book hair and makeup for my mommas. When you are showing up for a morning session with a newborn, you do not have time to get ready. You are so tired! So that is an extra little plus I like to provide for my moms.
Look how stunning she looks? I hope she cherishes this portrait forever.
Mom and girl sweet newborn girl.
Here is mom with both of her babies!
Daddy and daughter portraits always hold a special place for me. It is just the sweetest thing.
Look at her little toes popping out! I adore it.
baby toes are my favorite! Look how sweet and perfect they look.
First family portraits as a family of four. I think they turned out perfectly.
Here are some singles of Addison.
Such a perfect simple portrait that shows off her sweet little face and toes.
I love black and whites. It enhances the features and takes all of the distraction away. Look how perfect she is.
