Hand Painted Oil Portrait

Home » katy photographer

Have you ever had an oil painting? What about an oil painting of your family portrait? One that will withstand the test of time and that can be passed down from each generation? If not, why not? Let’s create this one of a kind unique piece together.

I chose to create mine of the 4 generation of women in my life. My grandma, my mother, me, and my two daughters.

Each piece is master art retouched. Then it will be digitally painted. After it has been digitally painted, it gets sent off to Italy to be printed. This is not a traditional canvas. This portrait will be be on a Giclee Fine art canvas. Giclée printmaking meets the highest quality standard for printing limited edition pieces on paper or canvas.

We use 10-color, archival-pigmented Ultrachrome K3 inks that provide print life exceeding 80 years, even 100+ years.

Adoption is Love- Houston photographer

MJ’s Photography – Houston Photographer

“After 559 days in foster care….Aiden is finally a Clements!!!!!!!!! We prayed diligently before, during and after this process. Trust the Lord and his plan and he will deliver the best blessings of all. We are so abundantly blessed to have been chosen to be Aiden’s family. Today will be one of our favorite days forever and always! #gotchaday #adoptionisgospel#adoptionislove” (Samantha-Mom)

Aiden is finally a Clements! “At ten months old, Aiden was placed in the Clements home as a foster child. The family has worked for more than a year to officially adopt him. Tuesday, the family was able to finally call him their own when they adopted the now two-year-old.”

Luxury photographer in Houston

The Clements say they hope their story will inspire more of the community to step up and help bring foster kids into safe and loving homes.

I had the honor of meeting this amazing family back in East Texas. Mason is their third baby girl and they wanted me to travel from Houston to Fort Worth to capture this special moment. It was worth the drive, all 3 of these sweet girls did amazing!

Look at these sweet sisters.

Guess how Mason was born? In the truck about 10 minutes from the hospital! Daddy is an ER doctor but couldn’t help because he was driving. They also waited until birth to find out her gender, so cool!

Look how gorgeous she is.

Three under three, look how precious!

The bucket pose, chin pose in the bucket is my favorite! Look how adorable she is. Momma wanted some grays in Mason’s newborn setup, which turned out perfect.

But look how cute she is in this mustard lace outfit. She is a doll! She took some soothing to get this portrait, but we got it.

Look how gorgeous this family is! Getting all three girls to cooperate wasn’t the easiest, but we did it! Which is your favorite family portrait? Bunker Hill Gardens photographer

Newborn sessions are done within the first two weeks of birth. Between 9-17 days old is my favorite time to photograph these precious babies. This allows me to capture all of the sleepy poses that you see in my portfolio! Ones like these.

Which pose is your favorite? I think the bucket ones are my favorite. I love them from every angle. They are just the sweetest to me.

Here are some more of my favorites. There are so many!

Junie’s forever home…finally!

MJ’s Photography- Houston family photographer

houston family photographer

Momma took the time to write out a letter to her sweet son….cue the tears!

Luxury photographer in Houston

A letter to my son. 

Junie,

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.

houston adoption photographer

 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. 

katy photographer

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. 

fulshear family photographer

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,

Mommy

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.

Houston family photographer

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!

Of course before family portraits, I had to do a little session with Elise in her gorgeous Annie dress. Here are some of my favorites.

Which is your favorite?

I think this dress is the perfect neutral vintage dress. The built in petticoat just makes it perfect and gives it the right amount of “poof.”

katy family photographer

The pockets are Elise’s favorites!

cypress child photographer, katy newborn photographer, houston newborn photographer, Houston photographer

Photographing a two year old is a challenge, but the results are the most rewarding. You have to figure out what makes them happy. Each child is different, so it is my job to figure out how to make them come out of their shell in the small amount of time I have.

Best Child photographer Katy Texas

I love capturing children. I love capturing their personalities and who each of them are. Each child is unique and deserves a session that captures them as who they are. This is how you will want to remember them as they grow.

Style and Consult Consultation:

I always include a complimentary style & consult consultation with every portrait session. That way we can discuss your family or child’s likes, needs, wants, and your vision. This will help create your vision into life! After all, these will be hanging on your wall for years to come and shouldn’t they be perfect?

Best Child photographer Katy Texas

We will also sit down and go over your wardrobe for your portrait session. This will allow me to help you every step of the way in designing your portrait session. For children, I do have stylish gowns and tiaras for most girls as well. Here is an example below. For women, I have a variety of gowns to choose from.

Best Child photographer Katy Texas

This dress is hand made and designed by Annie Banannie Clothing. She is amazing! If I don’t have what you want, she creates customs as well!

Best Child photographer Katy Texas

Locations:

Locations are everything! Thats why in our consultation we will go over the vision you have for your portrait session. From open fields, water, forested areas, or city centers, we will find what meets your needs.

Here is a location near Jordan Ranch that I love! Jordan ranch is technically Fulshear, but it is closer to Katy than Fulshear. It doesn’t make sense ha ha. These old oil tanks are beautiful! I love bringing old antiques into our new world visions.
