MJ’s Photography is a Katy TX family photographer that specializes in newborn, maternity, and family portraits.
I had the honor of photographing the Forrestier family this past week. Tabitha is the owner of Annie Banannie Clothing. She made the girls dresses and the boys vests in this portrait. Go check her out!
This momma rocks being a mom of 6, homeschooling, and OWNING her own business! How incredible is that. Dad owns his own business as well!
Daddy and his babies.
Momma and her babies.
Fun fact: Annie Banannie is named after their oldest daughter…Annie! This dress is releasing this week…better run!!
Mom wanted a special portrait of just her and her girls. They are absolutely stunning during this Texas sunset.
Here are some more family favorites. I just love all of the candid portraits of them together. I am a huge black and white fan, these really speak to me in black and white!
All 6 of their gorgeous babies. They are so well mannered and extra sweet.
Of course we had to get some of them as a couple. Aren’t they perfect? I love getting images of just mom and dad. How often does this happen?

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.
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.
I can’t get over Carson’s face here! <3
Day 2 we did another session is a field. Just wait for these! I am so in love. Cypress 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
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!
Momma with both of her kiddos! I love this one showing Kaleigh’s missing tooth!
Here are some more family favorites! Such sweet smiles.

I had the honor of traveling to Sulphur Springs to photograph the Gulbas family at their property there. It is a gorgeous place and about 2 hours from East Texas. It was a first time for me and I really enjoyed the drive.
Look how perfect they are in their family portrait. I love their gallery.
Mom wanted a great picture of her three babies together and I think we did just that. Look at those smiles.
We all know with family pictures, you can never forecast how the little ones are going to act, but all three were amazing! Look how much fun they had and the beautiful memories that were captured.

I love getting pictures of just mom and dad together. We all know that moments with just mom and dad are rare. The moment I took these, I knew they were going to be amazing. It helps when momma is this gorgeous of course.
Here are some of momma with her babies.
Here are some more favorites from the Gulbas family session.

It is never to early to book. I am booking into November 2019.
I am a Cypress family photography. I service Central Texas which includes, Katy, Cypress, Fulshear, Weston Lakes, The Woodlands, Conroe, Sugar Land, and Pear Land.
I get a lot of requests to take clients sessions at certain times of the day. I always reply with ” I hold all of my portrait sessions during the Golden hour.” I then explain why. So for people wondering what the Golden hour is and why I choose to shoot then, here you go!
The golden hour is that hour before sunset (or sunrise…but most people do not want to get up that early). It provides that soft, dreamy, golden hazed light that I live for. I love the effect that it gives to my images. Sure some of those can be achieved in photoshop, but it is not the same. The golden hour changes with each season, so there is not an exact time year round.
Are there any exceptions? Sure there are. If it is a cloudy day or if the portraits are going to be taken indoor(I mostly do newborns sessions and sitter sessions indoor). If it is cloudy, the sun will not produce that harsh sunlight, so it is then possible to shoot outside of the golden hour.
Will I really decline a session if the client insists on shooting outside of that time frame? If it is not cloudy, then yes I will. Professional portraits are an investment and are timeless. I strive to make every image worthy of hanging on your wall for years to come and if the lighting is not there, it is limited. If you are going to pass down your family portrait to your children, it deserves to be perfect. I am a family photographer that strives to create that perfect piece of art for your family.
I am going to show a couple sessions that I have taken during the golden hour, here in Killeen, Texas. I will then upload an image that was taken at noon, when the lighting was harsh. If you look for it, you will immediately notice the difference in the skin tone.

Now for the noon session. Notice the shadows, the highlights, and his skin tone. He is still cute, but imagine what the image would like like with amazing light.
