 Children’s Portraits in Houston

Houston family portrait photographer, Michael Carr, captured these Portraits of Andrea recently. We have photographed Andrea for her family for many years. We have enjoyed seeing her grow up; and yes we remember when she was very tiny! Her Mom called us and wanted a different Portrait to celebrate Andrea turning 10 years old. We decided an outdoor session in the fall would be perfect. We had the perfect location in mind for this session too. We helped her Mom pre-plan clothing for Andrea’s portraits, and ultimately let Andrea decide what she wanted to wear.

Throughout the portrait session we talked with Andrea and made her feel relaxed and comfortable. We wanted her personality and character to show through the entire session. Here are just a few of our favorite portraits from her milestone session.

Houston Newborn Photographer

Houston newborn photographer, Lisa Carr of Belly to Baby Studios, recently photographed this newborn girl in the studio. We love incorporating siblings and family with our newborn photography.

Before this client arrived with her family, we pre-selected the props and accessories for her newborn’s portraits. We had a phone consultation before the session to discuss the scope the session and the best clothing options for everyone that would be included in the portrait.

Houston Newborn Photographer

We believe in creating timeless artwork for families to enjoy for years to come. In a day and age when digital imagery is all around us, it is nice to have artwork hanging in a home. Printed artwork will last well beyond the limited life of technology. Printed artwork is not dependent upon IOS updates, compatibility issues, and does not need to be backed up in the cloud. You can also find your printed artwork and look at it quicker than the time it takes to unlock your phone.

We have all the backgrounds, baskets, hats and diaper covers so all you need to do is arrive with your baby! You can view our Prop Closet here. Just remember to bring plenty of formula or milk with you, and extra diapers. You can relax in a private room during your newborn’s session and get some much needed rest. You are also welcome to peek into the camera room during the session so you can see your baby’s session in real time.

Lisa Carr, of Belly to Baby Studios, is a Houston Newborn Photographer. Our studio photographs maternity portraits, newborn portraits, baby portraits and family portraits. We help you and guide you all the way from Portrait session concept to Portrait completion. We love to create finished artwork for our client’s home. The artwork will appreciate over time and provide years of joy. When you view our Portraits and albums, they will take you back to a moment in time that in the end will slip by so quickly.

You can view more of our newborn portraits, Maternity Portraits and our Family Portraits on our site. Our studio is conveniently located in the Galleria area, in a professional office building. We have a private nursing lounge so you can relax and feed your baby between sets.

Call us at 713-461-2862 and we can schedule and discuss your portrait session.

Newborn and Family Portraits

Lisa Carr, with Belly to Baby Studios, is a Houston Newborn and Family Photographer. She recently photographed this baby boy when he was 1 month old. It is recommended that you photograph newborns between 7-12 days old. If you are a new Mom, or have never had your newborn photographed professionally you may be wondering why. This time frame is recommended so that your baby will sleep a bit more and so that they are still flexible since their bones and muscles have not fully developed. Babies that are older than this will typically stretch out more and reach out more with their hands during their sessions, and also may not want to be scrunched up or swaddled.

We always receive calls after a baby has been born, and Moms are panicked because they did not pre-schedule their baby’s newborn session weeks in advance. We always leave room in our calendars for these last minute sessions. We also believe that it is very important to have your newborn’s photographed even if they are older than the recommended time frame of 7-12 days old. We know older babies will need to be handled differently and accommodations made for extra feedings during the session. Also we love to capture awake babies during the newborn session, and we allow extra time for these poses as well:
