Fulshear pet photographer

MJ’s Photography is a Fulshear pet photographer located in Central Texas.

Ashley has been one of my greatest friends since college. She has the most caring heart that anyone could imagine. She currently has 10 dogs. All rescues! She adopts the senior pups that get abandoned at the shelter. We also have to give Carter a round of a “paws”….he lets her do it and loves them just as much lol!

Meet Stanley. This day was Stanley’s last day on earth and it was a joyful one.

Ashley asked if I could photograph Stanley before he left earth side.

Stanley loves his Chick Fil A. So momma brought his favorite nuggets. He enjoyed them so much!

It was so wonderful celebrating his last day. There were lots of tears, but for a moment there was laughter. MJ-Fulshear pet photographer

Here was his momma’s post about his last day.

Last night my legs were cold for the first time in a long time. He always slept by them and the gaping hole in the bed reminded me he wasn’t there. He wasn’t a very big dog, but he had a big personality- I think that’s what took up so much space. I couldn’t have asked for a better last day with my boy though. He had Chick-fil-A for dinner on Monday and again for brunch yesterday (Chick-fil-A because he had standards about his chicken 😂), and  Mary Ann took pictures. Then he slept and I napped with him. For dinner he had rotisserie chicken which has symbolically become the last meal in our home. We have done it with each that have gone before them, and the tradition will continue. When we take on frosty face, hospice type dogs, we know what we are taking on. We are taking on a ton of work repaid with endless love. If you ever see me buying a pre-made rotisserie chicken, please hug me. I don’t only get them during this time, but if I buy one when we aren’t saying goodbye to anyone it’s because I am missing them and I want to remember eating our last meal with them.

The day was so different from any of the others, and his passing was peaceful. Stanley has never been a cuddler, but he would absolutely love to lay next to me in bed. He loved that and eating, so that’s what we did. He was having major struggles between kidney disease, Cushings, and bad anxiety from losing his vision and hearing, but he wasn’t on his deathbed. I didn’t worry that he was suffering, but I knew that he would be soon and I didn’t want that for him. I wanted us to have our last day together on our terms, and without the added difficulty of him being in pain. I will never forget the first picture April sent me of him laying on a cold concrete floor in the Garland shelter. My heart broke and I said “pull him and I’ll take him.” I will never forget the first time I held him after his journey with Lori brought him to me. I’ll always remember the first night he spent in our home stretched out with his belly in the air just completely comfortable. He knew he was home even before we did. At that time, I paid for all of his vet bills and told Carter the rescue was paying for them 😂. Then I fell in love with him and Carter and I decided he should stay. I will always remember his sassy self and his little gimpy trot that never slowed him down for meals. I’ll always remember how during the height of his Cushings he would wake me up at 4am every single morning for breakfast by body slamming himself into my face. He was my little JFP and we had a special bond-that bond that only a mother could continue to put up with him for all these years. I feel so incredibly honored to have been his Momma for the last 5 years of his life, and I am so grateful that we had the ability to help him pass peacefully.

Run free my sweet Stanley aka Manny aka Manny Potts aka Manner aka JFP. I’ll see you at the #rainbowbridge one day 🌈”

Hug your pups tonight.

Family portraits Cypress Texas

MJ’s Photography specializes in Family portraits Cypress Texas.

I love capturing families. How else will you remember exactly how your family was in this point and time? Your little one’s will have little memory of their younger age and this is the way to remember it all.

Family portraits are so special. When your kids are all grown up, these are the portraits they will look back on. These portraits will then turn into memories.

I was so glad when I was contacted to capture Laura’s family. They have one year old boy and girl twins! I have an obsession with capturing twins.

Look how gorgeous Abby is. This portrait really captured her eyes!

Melissa flew to Texas to visit a friend and then drove 3 hours to get her family portraits done. It was a pretty cold day, but both of her babies did great.

Isn’t he perfect? I took his two year portraits and now he is 4! Time sure does fly.

Katy tx family photographer – MJ’s Photography

MJ’s Photography is a Katy tx family photographer serving the Houston Texas area.

Katy tx family photographer

Getting family pictures done is so important for yourself and for your children. They will have these memories to look back on when they are older. Trust me, they will want them.

Every mom stresses about their family pictures. After we mentally prepare for family portraits, we start looking for that perfect photographer, which is a job in itself. whew! We want someone that matches our style, our vision, and who can make us look beautiful! Don’t forget MJ is a Katy tx family photographer that services the entire Houston Texas area!

The next thing we think about is the outfits. What colors will we wear? Do these colors all match well? Does my outfit make me look bigger? Does this color wash me out? Guess what, your photographer WILL help you do all of this…and if they do not, you are not with the right photographer! When my clients inquire, I stress the fact that I am more than willing to send examples. I want you to email me pictures with what you are thinking, I will help you tweak your choices if needed.

Fast forward to the day of the session. First priority…making SURE our kids get their naps. If they don’t, forget it. Nightmare session is happening! Am I right?

Somehow in the midst of either work or taking care of the children all day, we are to find time to get ourselves looking gorgeous. This means bringing out the nice makeup we rarely use, finding the curling iron that has collected dust, and putting on our best outfit. If this is a huge stress on your plate, hire someone to do your hair and makeup or even get a friend to help you do it.

We then have to keep everyone clean until after the session. (ya right!)

After it is all said and done, you will LOVE these. You will cherish them forever. I try to help my clients out as much as possible. If it is helping coordinate your outfits, finding you the perfect makeup/hair stylist to make your portraits extra perfect, or meeting your kids beforehand,  I am there to help.

 Spring family photographer

I also take a different approach to family portraits. I prefer lifestyle. What exactly does lifestyle family pictures mean? (Besides less stress?) Well, it means that we play, we laugh, we have fun. There is no “shot list.” Sure we will try to get everyone looking, but if that doesn’t happen, it doesn’t matter!

 Houston family photographer

I am looking to capture raw emotion. These emotions/shots cannot be staged or posed. These come from playing with your children. That sweet embrace, the innocent giggle from being twirled, or that huge grin from being chased are the pictures that you will fall in love with. That is what makes these portraits extra special. These are the images that families always choose for their wall art. It’s the ones I choose of my own children.

 Sugar Land family photographer

Guess what? One day your children will be all grown up and family portraits will be staring at the camera with a smile. The pictures where you are holding them, hugging them, and kissing them will no longer be an option. Just let that sink in for second. They will be either to big to hold or too cool for you to kiss on. Go grab your rowdy toddler or your teething baby and get your family portraits done! Capture these precious memories while they are here.

Another thing I love to do during family portraits is capture just mom and dad! Once you have little ones, you forget to capture just you two as a couple. I aim to fix that.

Twin Boys 1st Birthday – Baby photography sugar land tx

Baby photography sugar land tx

I am a Baby photography sugar land tx who enjoys photographing 1st Birthdays! What’s harder than having a toddler? Having two toddlers of course! I was honored to be chosen as their photographer in the Sugar Land and  Houston area to capture their First Birthday. Ezra and Enzo were a joy to photograph. Ezra was as fast as lighting, while Enzo would take his time getting from A to B. Photographing them in the same shot took a little bit of work, but we got amazing portraits of both of the Birthday boys. Two completely different personalities in two adorable little boys! Their daddy is currently deployed and he is scheduled to come back soon! I know they are all ready to be back together.

Of course we had to get a couple portraits of them in the Bluebonnets! They are on a perfect piece of land around the Killeen Texas area.  There are quite a few fields of them in the Killeen and Temple area, you just have to be on the lookout! I just love these of the boys!

Mommy even ordered some cute shirts for their First Birthday portrait session! Remember how I said they moved at different speeds? This is how we got some of them together, a crate! <3 By the end, mommy, grandma, and myself were tired. The boys…not so much 😉
