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.

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

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.

Katy texas family photographer

What Texan doesn’t love bluebonnets? I LOVE them so much!

Jaxson had his very first portraits in the bluebonnets.

Look how perfect his little rolls are! I am obsessed.

The mixture of the red wildflowers mixed with the bluebonnets is just gorgeous! I love the color palette. Add an adorable little baby in there and its picture perfect.

Look at those little teeth!

Of course I wanted mommy to join in on the session. Jaxson will always adore having pictures to look back on that have his mom in them.

I just love this one! Look at the love!

Expecting a newborn in or near Katy, Texas? Consider MJ’s Photography for your newborns first portraits.

Katy best newborn photographer

Remi was such a doll at her newborn session. At 3 weeks old, she weighed around 6 pounds. She had the most beautiful skin and dark brown hair.

Being a Katy Texas newborn portrait photographer in Central Texas means I get to snuggle lots of newborns. She was 3 weeks old and slept very well during her session. We got so many great snuggly poses during her portrait session.

Remi was wide eyed during the beginning of her session. Her eye contact at 3 weeks old was spectacular! In their family picture, she had amazing eye contact with me.

Just look at these gorgeous baby eyes.

I love when mom decides to get in on the newborn portraits. Look at how beautiful she is! She is wearing one of my couture gowns that are exclusive for my clients.

I love when I am able to capture a newborn with their eyes open. Sometimes we focus so much on the asleep newborn pictures, that we forget that we want to see what their eyes looked like during this stage too. Don’t get me wrong, I do want them to sleep for most of the session, but I do like some showing their eyes!

Katy best newborn photographer Katy best newborn photographer Katy best newborn photographer Katy best newborn photographer

It’s important to find a newborn photographer that matches the style that you are wanting. These are once in a lifetime portraits for your precious baby. They will never again be this little or new.

I have a posed newborn style and I like contrasting shadows in my portraits. Deeper, darker editing style is what I tend to lean towards. I make sure to capture every detail, from their lashes to their toes. Overshooting is a habit and I tend to give a larger gallery to choose from. I just can’t help it! Babies are beautiful and it is hard to stop.

It is all in the details…it is so important to capture every single one. Nothing is too small. Love love love the details!

Here are some more from her amazing gallery!

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.

Katy tx family photographer
MJ’s Photography – Katy tx family photographer

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!)

 Katy family photographer
MJ’s Photography – Marshall family photographer

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.

Weston lakes family portraits – MJ

MJ’s Photography is a Weston lakes family portraits located in Katy, Texas.

I love capturing family’s in their essence. Family portraits are so important because as your little one’s grow up, these are what they are going to look back on. This will allow them to remember these special moments that happened in their lives.

Longview family photographer

I enjoyed capturing this family’s portraits. Daddy was set to deploy in the next month and they wanted to capture this time with Chase. When daddy comes back, he will almost a year older. These pictures will mean so much to him as he grows up.

Chase is such as sweetheart. He was all smiles during his family session.

Weston lakes family portraits

I always love to get some portraits of the little ones by themselves during family sessions. Chase is just perfect in his suspenders! I just love a little boy in suspenders.

Weston lakes family portraits

Of course it is so important to get some images of mom and dad alone. We all know that once the littles come along, time alone is very rare! These two are so in love and it truly shows. Just look at how he is looking at her. Swoon!

Chase was all giggles with mommy. Moms are usually behind the camera, this is the time they get to be in front with their babies.

Look at those smiles with daddy during his family photography session. Capturing their genuine smiles is what I aim for. This little guy will love looking at these while daddy is away.

Best photographer in Sugar Land

I am a Newborn Photographer located in Katy Texas. Best photographer in Sugar Land.

Harlyn was just 11 days old during her newborn session. The ideal time for a newborn session is 15 days or less. During this time they are still sleepy and they really curl into all of those beautiful poses. Harlyn slept during her entire session and was such a joy to photograph.

Here are some sneak peeks from her precious newborn session taken at my studio in Central Texas.

Here are some more favorites from her newborn session. All of the beautiful head pieces are made and designed by Lucky Crickets. Below is the link to her Etsy shop.

Happy World Down Syndrome Day from Miss Adalyn-Katy Photographer

Katy Photographer – MJ

I was given the honor of taking Adalyn’s Valentine portraits when she was 5 months old. Her mommy had told me that she was extra special, that she also had down syndrome. She also had told me about the hole in her heart, so I had to get a special outfit for her.

Her mommy, Carrie, has written their story to share with all of you. Here is one of my favorite images of her! <3

Katy photographer

“As many first time parents, much thought, planning and intention go into having a child. Through Chad and I’s 10 years of building our relationship we often pondered the idea of one day having a child. We both put a lot of thought and consideration into what this would mean for our lives and how things would change. Having a child is the absolute biggest, most life-changing experience one could have. After much deliberation we decided it was time.

A month later it happened! Even though we “planned”, we were still beyond shocked. We were both in disbelief for the first couple days, maybe even weeks. The day after discovering the news Chad headed out to a training mission in California for a month and I headed off to Hawaii with a good friend, Erika, for a Salsa Convention. I had the time of my life! We danced, hiked, zumba’d through the week and before we knew it, we were on our way back. It was a wonderful distraction since I decided I wanted to wait until Chad’s return to see the doctor.

He returned and doctor confirmed we were in fact pregnant. During this first appointment the doctor asked if we were interested in completing an optional triple screening to potentially detect chromosomal and other various deficiencies with the baby. We opted in because we wanted to be prepared and educated if something was to arise.

A few weeks later we received the results, the day after Easter to be precise. I was 12 weeks along and it was a day we could never forget and  never in a million years would we have imagined that we would be the 1 in 700 individuals to test with a 99.9% possibility of trisomy 21. Trisomy 21 is triplication of the 21st chromosome resulting in down’s syndrome.

It took  a couple of days of just Chad and I internalizing the diagnosis and then we jumped right into embracing it and started really educating ourselves and trying to prepare. We started sharing the news with each individual family member in which case everyone was extremely supportive. For extended family and friends we wrote a letter and explained that we were expecting our baby girl and that we were fairly sure she would have down’s syndrome and we hoped everyone would be as willing and excited to welcome our baby Adalyn into the world as we were.

The pregnancy from that point on was scary! Everything was scary! Absolutely traumatizing. I had lots, and LOTS of ultrasounds. In fact one every other day for two weeks. They nearly took her at 22 weeks due to lack of fluid. Yes, traumatic! Long story short we had Adalyn 4 days shy of full term! That same day we discovered she had a massive hole in the center of her heart therefore, where normally there are four chambers, she has a mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. She spent 2 weeks in the NICU but from day one she was surpassing any and all expectations doctors had thought. The main objective during this time was weight gain and getting her to complete feeds in case heart surgery was imminent and the fact that she was born at 4lbs. 6 oz. They wanted to beef her up before going home and ensure she would thrive.

She is now 6 months old and heart doctors are boggled with how much progress she’s had in closing her holes in her heart all by herself, no medication! With her particular heart defect the majority need immediate surgery. Her heart doctor is now projecting surgery won’t be necessary until she’s around 1 years old. This is amazing because the larger they are the easier the surgery is for them. There’s also a chance she may not even need the surgery however our doctor said she would be his first if this is true.

With this being said, we can plan all that we want, but if you are the chosen one for an exceptional circumstance you simply re-write your plan. We couldn’t be any more happy, proud, or love our daughter anymore than we do. Adalyn having down’s syndrome has increased our awareness as well as our families. It has educated us and lastly it has opened our hearts to an entire new population of individuals that bring such a joy to life. We could never be more thankful for those three reasons alone.

So Happy World Downs Syndrome Day!! We know ours will be!!”

Here are some of the images from Adalyn’s sessions. Isn’t she beautiful?

Portraits with Grandparents- Katy family photographers

MJ’s Photography is a Katy family photographers.

What is the thing that helps us remember our childhood? Portraits. What is the one thing we hold on to when we lose someone? Our family portrait. It is so important to get photos as a family, but I think there is one thing that we forget. We need pictures of our children with their grandparents. Not only are our children getting older, but so are our parents. We need to make sure to take the time to get those very special portraits with them as well. We need something to pass down to our children when they are grown.

I took my own advice and dedicated a shoot for my Mother in law, Kay, and my daughter, Emma Lyn. They had a lot of fun and I am so glad they we captured these priceless moments. It is so important to get Family Portraits.
