MJ’s Photography is a Katy maternity photographer that specializes in newborn, maternity, and family portraiture.
Kaelie and Garrett are expecting their first baby. Kash will be born in the next couple months and I cannot wait to meet him.
Kaelie selected Synergy park for her maternity portrait location and it turned out beautiful! Synergy park is full of pine trees and gorgeous water. This was my first time shooting there and it is a favorite.
Kaelie chose a Burgundy gown for one of her gown choices and it contrasted perfectly with the pine trees. Look at how gorgeous she is.
Look at these two together. Aren’t they perfect? They are going to be wonderful parents.
As we walked around the lake we saw the most adorable baby ducks. Of course I wanted to get some images of the baby ducks in the background. Look how cute they are?
I saw this rock as we were pulling into the park and instantly wanted to capture her on it. This gown and this rock are magical! She is absolutely stunning!

Ashley came to me wanting a “maternity session”…but she isn’t pregnant. No matter how hard she has tried, she isn’t pregnant. Her story does not have a happy ending…not yet, but it will. She is going to be an amazing mother…one day.

Ashley and Carter endured the stressful and strenuous rounds of IVF and had 3 precious embryos, which they learned were all baby girls. Baby girls that they would never get to see grow up. She said that she didn’t feel justified in mourning her 3 girls because they technically weren’t babies. But they were. They were their babies and they are allowed to be sad over them.
“Most days I feel excited for what’s in store for us. I see women with children and it makes me happy and sad at the same time. Sad for our 3 daughters we never got to meet, but happy for the child I know we will have one day through adoption. I hear about teenage pregnancies and think about the wonderful life I could give that child’s child. I hear about women who hurt their children or use drugs during their pregnancy and my blood boils. I sit in the glider in our empty nursery every few days or so and think about what it will be like when I am holding our baby in my arms. It’s one of the places I feel most at peace. We have the entire nursery set up so we are prepared at any moment.”
“My husband and I have filed our FMLA paperwork and have been saving our sick leave so we can afford to stay home for a little while and get settled after he or she arrives. I even have a carseat base properly installed in my car so that when I get the call and cannot contain my excitement, I won’t have to fiddle with safely installing it. I have a diaper bag packed with boy clothes and girl clothes of different sizes, as well as diapers, different types of pacifiers, and the baby blanket I had as an infant.”
“I can’t think of anything else we could need- except our child.”
“Most days I am going on about my life as if nothing has changed in the last 10 months. But then there are the other days. The bad days. They don’t happen very often, but they do happen.”
“Sometimes the feelings build up for so long that the only thing I can do to feel any sort of relief is to let the tears fall from my eyes. It still hurts. It hurts that my body, for some unknown reason, could not give my 3 daughters life.”
” It hurts to think that I should be in the stages of being so pregnant that I am complaining that I can’t sleep and that I just want her to “be here already.” I should be getting close to weekly doctor’s visits to check how soon we might anticipate her arrival. I should be planning her first Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yet I’m here with nothing to show for the warI fought except hips that are still sore 6 months later from all the progesterone injections.”
“I think about the money we spent on IVF and I feel guilty for putting that type of financial strain on my family.”
“I still hope every month that some miracle will happen, and I still feel defeated when it doesn’t.”
I have family and friends who know the right thing to say, even if they don’t realize it. My husband still goes with me to get pedicures and we both get pink polish for our little girls. People frequently ask him why his toenails are pink and he readily tells them our story. I am not shy about sharing our story either because so many women suffer in silence. I never want them to feel alone. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, no matter if you can’t see the reason at first.

“I have been through tough times in my life and come out on the other side stronger and more appreciative of the life I have. I don’t believe you can truly appreciate all the blessings in your life until you’ve struggled. Sometimes I feel like “why me?” but in reality, why not me? Maybe there is something I need to do first or learn first. I will never have a definitive answer. For now I will do what I’ve been doing.”
“I will wait. Maybe not always patiently, but I will wait. And when the day comes for me to meet my child, I have no doubt that it will be one of the best days ever.”

When you are expecting a baby, it is such an amazing time in your life! At the time you are tired and you do not feel like yourself, but the truth is that you are amazing! You are creating something bigger than yourself, a tiny little newborn baby. That is what I love about my “job.” I get to capture these short, but amazing moments in peoples lives.
I love that I get to meet mommy’s before their little one is here. I capture them while they are carrying their precious baby. Every maternity session is different, every mommy is different, and that is what makes it so special.
Meet Allana. As you scroll these you are going to think “WOW she is gorgeous!” She most certainly is. She made pregnancy look so good. I loved capturing her carrying her princess.
Grayson was so excited to be a big brother. I’m not sure he fully understood what it entailed, but he put on a show regardless! He was quite the ham during mommy’s maternity session in Houston Texas.
There are so many favorites from Allana’s maternity session. Let me know which one is you favorite in the comments!
Here are some from the forest in the purple couture maternity gown.
I love this one of mommy and Grayson. He kept kissing her belly in the sweetest way and then running away!
Now on to Avery’s newborn portraits! Miss Avery decided to come early. She made her grand arrival at just 3lb! After some NICU stay, we finally got to schedule her newborn session. I was very excited to finally get to meet her.
She definitely makes the quote “Though she be small, she is mighty,” true. She took a little persuading, but we got an amazing gallery of her. With lots of patience and extra cuddles, her gallery was very full!
Look at that smile! Isn’t she perfect?
She was so tiny at her newborn session! She was around 5 pounds. Look how beautiful she looks in neutrals.
She was so tiny in this standard bucket. Just look at her size compared to the bucket. Ahhhhh I just love this pose on her.
If you guys knew what it took to get this portrait of Avery, you wouldn’t believe it! Mommy knows and I think that makes it just that more special. Mommy wanted a naked shot and I am so glad that we got it. Right after I got this, she leaped right up!
If you thought she was gorgeous in pink, just wait until you see her in purple!
Look at this little girl’s personality! Ah I love her eye contact!
We also did sibling portraits with Grayson and Avery. Grayson was quite the model for me at my Hallsville studio.
Mommy did some one on ones with Avery in the same maternity gown. Gah she is gorgeous!
Here is daddy with his princess!
Finally a family of 4. Aren’t they perfect?

Kristina loved the teal gown. It looks stunning on her!
Kristina is due with baby boy Zane next month! Dad will be coming home from his deployment to meet his first baby boy.
Kristina also wanted to wear a couture gown that showed off her perfect baby bump! This white gown from Couture Parfait https://www.etsy.com/shop/CoutureParfait was perfect for her maternity session. Isn’t she perfect?
Kristina chose this image for her 16×20 fine art canvas. I cannot wait to see it in person. It is going to look perfect hanging on her wall.
She also chose to wear the eggplant couture gown for her maternity portrait session. It hugs her in all of the right places and shows off her perfect baby belly.
At MJ’s Photography, the couture maternity gowns are provided for your session. I have a closet full of the couture maternity gowns for my clients to wear during their sessions. I like to bring all of my mommies in to try them on before their maternity portrait session, that way we find the best one for you. There are lots of different styles and colors to choose from.
Ayshia fell in love with the teal gown and it looks amazing on her. She has the perfect skin tone for it. She is due next month with her first baby.She is having a baby boy and his name is going to be Mason.
Baby Mason is so loved already. These two cannot wait to meet him.
I absolutely adore the blush maternity gown on Ayshia as well. This was one of my favorite shots of her. She is just stunning.
I absolutely love her genuine smile. I told daddy to make her laugh and he did easily. Their love just shown throughout the whole session.
Ayshia also chose the white lace gown. Doesn’t she look amazing? She put it on and I just knew these water shots were going to be perfect. This was one of their favorites.
Who knew you could do water shots in the beginning of February? Only in Central Texas! I love our weather.
I tend to book two months out. If you are looking to book for a Katy Fulshear maternity photography, please message me as soon as possible.
