Angie & Stephen – Cambridge, Massachusetts engagement session

Summer is here and my season is packed full of travel back home to New England. We just returned to Houston from our family vacation in Maine, and three days later I was back on a plane headed back to Boston. It’s a full weekend of photographing a wedding for a client in Belmont, as...

How to be a more inclusive wedding photographer

I’m going state the obvious for a second….weddings are very bride centric. The wedding industry is heavily geared toward catering to what the bride wants at HER wedding. Go to any wedding blog and this is apparent from the start. Even wedding pros themselves are notorious for having language on their website that give the...

Katy family portrait sessions! Spring and Summer dates available!

Let’s be honest. Summer is here y’all! Even though it doesn’t say so on the calendar, for those of us here in Houston the temps say otherwise. And you KNOW it’s only going to get hotter. So now is the time to get those family portraits done that you’ve been putting off all season. And...

Mother’s Day Thank You

To all the mothers that have allowed me the chance to document a piece of their life, thank you. Making these memories for you brings me such great joy and I’m so honored to know you and have you in my life.  Happy Mother’s Day. xoxo Anne   Interested in having your family portraits done...

Venue Spotlight: Station 3 Houston

Station 3 – Houston’s historic wedding venue With all the wedding venues in Houston to choose from, one of my favorites is a historical landmark. Nestled just outside downtown on the corner of Houston Ave and Spring Street sits one of Houston’s oldest, original fire stations. This stunning, brick building is a charming location for...

Venue Spotlight: Hotel ZaZa Memorial City

Hotel ZaZa Memorial City – Houston Wedding Venue For my birthday this March I decided it was time for a little r&r. With my parents here visiting from Maine, I took advantage of the free childcare and told my husband that we were going on a little staycation. I have been wanting to stay the...

Calling all couples for 2020 weddings

If you are engaged and planning a wedding in 2020 now is the time to start looking for your photographer! After you’ve chosen the venue and locked that in, the next vendor, generally, to get booked is the photographer. We tend to get hired 9-12 months in advance (sometimes more than that!) so now is...

Venue 311 – modern barn weddings in hill country Texas

I left my home in Katy, Texas on a Friday afternoon and headed north on an adventure to visit a new wedding venue way on the outskirts of city or suburban life. Drive up 99 and then northwest on highway 290, and before you can blink and eye you have officially left suburban sprawl and...

Mom and baby session at home

This fall my friend Crystal had her third girl (oh my gosh, look at that red hair!) and I was delighted to spend the morning with her in her home while she and baby did what moms and new babies do…a lot of nothing! They lounged around, nursed, snuggled, and enjoyed the quiet of the...

George Bush Park family portraits

This October I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family for a photo session in George Bush Park in Katy. The weather was absolutely perfect on this fall day and the space was great for letting their three year old son run around. Sessions with toddlers are always challenging. As any parent of a...

The birth of Sophie

Thalita and Celso were expecting their third baby girl in mid September and through their midwives at the Katy Birth Center found me to document this joyous occasion. They planned a very peaceful home birth and, being that this was their last baby, they knew that photos of this experience were very important to them...

Katy maternity and family photos at home

A few weeks before the arrival of their third baby girl I got to spend some time at home with this wonderful family in Katy. They had hired me to photograph the birth, but knowing this was their last baby, they also wanted to capture a little bit of home life with the two girls...

Birth photography at Katy Birth Center

Here’s another great birth from this spring. This one was planned to be a water birth at the Katy Birth Center and it started out that way until this baby just wasn’t ready. As lots of time went on this mom’s care team decided that it was best to head to the hospital and so we...

Birth session at Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston

I’m in the process of migrating all my birth photography work over to this website so here is a session I had this spring at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in downtown Houston. It was a pleasure to work with this family and witness the birth of their beautiful, baby girl!

Flood baby 2016

Every baby has a story of how they came into the world. For Andrea and Daniel, the story of the day their third baby was born has already made headlines across the country. Rewind back to Sunday, April 17. A major thunder storm was hitting the Houston area overnight and rain was coming down in...

Day in the life photos in Katy, Texas

Greetings from the east coast! If you are a regular follower of my work, or know even just a little bit about me, you know that I currently live in Katy, Texas but I am originally from Maine. And it is here in the gorgeous pine tree state where I am now! I am, as...

Holly’s three year portraits

I recently had this very special three year in my studio, where I was tasked with a very important project. These weren’t just ordinary portraits where the person in the photo was the subject of the photographer. For this shoot, there were two very important elements, the child, Holly, and the chair she was sitting...

Drakes Island Beach Maine family portraits

On my summer vacation home to Maine this year I got together with my dear friend Brea of Brea McDonald Photography and her family for an evening of dinner on the beach. We gathered our clan of kids, our beach chairs, and a cooler of pasta salad and beer and enjoyed a gorgeous night on the...

Henkel Hall Wedding in Round Top, Texas – Rebekah & Matt

Half way between Houston and Austin, nestled around hill country, are small, quintessential Texas towns. Tiny communities that people flock to for antiquing season, wildflowers in the spring and BBQ, well, anytime. One of those towns is Round Top, a mecca for weekend antiquing trips and bargain hunters looking for that one rare find. In...

Buffalo Bayou Park Engagement Session – Rebekah & Matt

Rebekah and Matt joined me on a gorgeous spring day in Houston, albeit a bit hot, and we wondered around some of our favorite spots in Buffalo Bayou Park for their engagement photos. These two are so fun and were an absolute joy to photograph. They are such naturals in front of the camera! I...
