Doing family portraits is so important! We all know how fast our babies grow and it’s so important to capture them with you. When they are grown, they will look back on these and smile.

My clients love displaying their wall art in different wall art options. From Wood blocks to metal prints, I will make your dream wall decor! This wood block collage is going to look so amazing on their walls.

Look at those smiles. So in love with this one.

Her selfless gift – Adoption Houston Photographer

Rhett’s Adoption. MJ’s Photography – Houston Photographer

houston photographer

3.5 years…. 42 months…. roughly 1,260 days…. It took less time than many couples who are plagued with infertility to have a child, but we still felt every moment of that wait. After trying to conceive with IVF last spring and being told at 32 that my egg quality was similar to that of a woman ten years my senior, we immediately decided to pursue adoption.

houston photographer

We became active with our agency August 9, 2018, just four months after our failed transfer. In January 2019 we attempted to get licensed with a foster care agency because there was 5 year old girl we desperately wanted to adopt- Aubrey. I had dreams for months after our IVF transfer that had a little girl, about 5 years old, that was our daughter. When I saw Aubrey’s face in a news story searching for an adoptive home I immediately recognized it. It was her. The little girl in my dreams…. our daughter. Since the embryo we transferred was a female, I had always assumed the connection was my subconscious telling me she was okay and that it was okay for us to continue to pursue adoption. When I saw her face everything in my soul told me this was more than a coincidence. We put our names on hold with our agency and decided to pursue foster-to-adopt in the hopes that we could become Aubrey’s parents. I just KNEW that she was meant to be ours. She resembled me when I was little in addition to being identical to the girl in my dreams. Getting licensed through foster care takes months and by the time we were close to having everything completed, a home had been selected for Aubrey. We were heartbroken. We called our agency and asked to have our names put back on their list in March. She told us the previous two months had been a very busy time with the agency and that she had placed multiple children in that time frame. I remember being so frustrated with our detour and doubting our decision to take a two month hiatus.

On April 23 my husband and I were both at work and I got a call. I didn’t recognize the number and I was in a patient’s room so I did not answer. I finished up with my patient and went into the break room to check my voicemail. It was our agency asking me to call back ASAP. My heart was racing as I hit redial. She didn’t answer. I was so anxious that I could barely catch my breath when the number showed up on my caller ID again. I answered with my voice quivering as she told me about a “unique situation” she had and asked if we would be open to it. It wasn’t an infant, but it was a little boy that was 5 months old. She had already talked to my husband (which is why she didn’t answer the phone when I called) and he said he would rather her talk to me about it. To spare details I will say the adoption had some risk of us not being able to keep him.

It was a risk I was ready to take without hesitation.

cypress photographer

My very logical husband wanted to discuss every angle and possibility, but ultimately said the decision was mine. I called the agency back and asked when we could pick him up. We drove 3.5 hours each way to pick him up the very next day and he has been our son since the moment we laid eyes on him. Legally we remained in a risk period until the end of August so the first four months we were on pins and needles waiting for a call that could potentially turn our wold upside down- either we would be able to keep him through the next legal step, or that we would have to return him to his birth family. We soaked up every moment we could with him.

When the end of August came and we finally finished the legal battles, there was an overwhelming sense of relief. In the state of Texas it’s required that a child live in your home for six months before you can finalize their adoption. October 24 marked six months and the judge ordered that he was officially our son on November 7, 2019. The wait was long and we doubted ourselves and our decisions at every turn, but ultimately we had to endure it all.

houston adoption

Every little turn, every detour, every time we felt we took one step forward and two steps back- it was all part of the journey to our son.

Our perfect baby boy who has his Papa’s grin and my innate ability to fall asleep 3 seconds into a car ride- just one different step or hesitation could have thrown us off our course to him. We are thankful for every second of this journey, thankful for every sign that the universe sent telling us to keep going and not doubt ourselves, and thankful for the love and support our family and friends have shown and continue to show for us and our son.

Most especially we are grateful to his birth momma, C, who put his needs before her own and made one of the most difficult decisions a mother can ever have to make. We cannot imagine life without this precious gift that she so selflessly gave us, and she will always have a place in our hearts!

Here is the adoption day through pictures! MJ- Houston Photographer

Waiting for the Judge to come make us official!

It is TIME!!!

When they asked “Are you ready to be his mommy forever?” We all teared up. She didn’t hesitate and said YES!!!!

Guancarlo came in at a week old and so much hair! Look at how much beautiful hair he has.

I am in love with his perfect little pose. What is cuter than a baby cuddled up on a pillow?

Katy newborn family photographer

Brothers. A forever best friend. Typically sibling photos are a hit or miss. Either big brother or sister loves holding their new baby or they want nothing to do with them. Adrian LOVES his brother and was all about posing and smiling with his baby brother. Mom had plenty to choose from.

Fulshear['s] best newborn photos Katy newborn photographer

I’m so glad mom decided to get into some portraits as well. She is simply stunning and I adore the color gown she chose to wear.

Mom loved the digital composites during our newborn session consultation beforehand, so I made sure to include a couple of sweet Guancarlo. She chose these two newborn composites and I’m so glad she did.

Maternity photographer Katy TX – MJ’s Photography

MJ’s Photography is located in the Fulshear area and is a Maternity photographer [that services in the ] Katy TX.

Melissa contacted me before I moved to the Katy area about her maternity and newborn portraits. Once I moved down to Houston, we had a wonderful consultation at her house in Conroe, Texas. We got to look at possible wall art locations, get to know each other, look at products, as well as try on lots of gowns! The fun part!

Melissa and her husband Kevin, decided on the Burgundy gown by Sew Trendy, the rust gown by Leah Marie Couture, and the gold gown by Abby Bella Couture.

Melissa’s favorite was the Burgundy gown. I love this gown on her. It is such a perfect color for the scenery she envisioned. She is 33 weeks and looks so perfect pregnant.

Maternity photographer Katy TX

How gorgeous does she look in this forest? Her hair and makeup was done by the amazing Aventa. Check her out for all of your beauty needs!

cinco ranch photographer

Kevin’s favorite gown was the rust gown. He said that she looked like a “nature goddess.” I do love this one on her. It goes perfectly with the crown that she made!

cinco ranch maternity photographer

I’m obsessed with this one. This dress, this pose, and that perfect baby belly. I can’t wait to meet little Auiden. He is already so loved. The excitement his momma had just showing me his chubby little cheeks in his 4D ultrasound photo, just made me even more excited for his newborn session.

Hidden Falls in Cypress

Here are some more favorites. These maternity portraits were taken in Katy, Texas. Maternity photographer Katy TX

The last gown is the gold gown. The fancy gown as we called it. Kevin was all dressed up to match his beautiful wife. I love these so much! I would put these all over my walls if they were me!

high end cypress photographer

Kevin tossed the gown for us to give us that flowy look. On one toss he threw it completely over her head! He practiced just a little to hard for this maternity session.

Which maternity portrait is your favorite? Can you guess which one was moms favorite? I’ll post it below!

I love when moms decide to be included in the session. How often are we the one’s left taking all of the pictures of our babies and we are not in them? It’s so important to get in the portraits! Our babies are going to want to see pictures of them little with their mommy!

I know looking back at my newborn baby pictures, there are not many with my mom. I would give anything to be able to see one of her with me as a newborn. It’s such a special time for baby and for mom. Let me capture it!

Cypress family photographer

Cypress family photographer – You can’t possible see the beauty of this mountain through a portrait. I tried my best, but this scenery is jaw dropping.

The anxiety of getting this perfect portrait was over the top. Being flown over 2000 miles and knowing that they want a 30×45 acrylic print of this in their house, made me extremely anxious! But we got it! <3

We did two locations in front of Mt. Rainier, this was another. We only had around 3-4 minutes because there was a big group of landscape photographer behind us trying to photograph the sunset on Mt. Rainier.

Cypress family photographer

Aren’t they perfect? Can’t imagine a better couple.

While waiting for the sun to be perfect for the mountain shots, we went into a valley to capture some other family portraits.

Conroe family photographer

The smiles and the happiness you can feel from looking at their babies sweet faces, make this session everything. There will be a time when you can no longer hold them in your arms, swing them in the air, or kiss them all over. When that time comes, it will mean everything to look back at these portraits and feel the memories.

(Just typing that, I had to run to my babies and kiss them all over…go ahead and do it to yours) <3

Cypress family photographer

Momma and her girl. My main goal on day 2 was to get an amazing portrait of mommy with each of her babies.

Now this one I am SO proud of. If you know Carson, you know he brings Wild to the nickname Wild child lol! He is so fun and full of energy, so getting him to snuggle for a picture is not on his agenda. So this one is everything! And isn’t momma gorgeous? Mannnnnn she looks good!
