The Ultimate Guide to Houston Photographers

“A photograph is the pause button of life.” {- Ty Holland}  As moms, we know all too well how true that is.  While the days may seem long, the years are incredibly short.  Our sweet little babies are born one day and then seem to be heading off to college the very next.  And since we have yet to find a way to make Father Time slow down, the only way we can capture the precious moments with our little ones is through photography.  Which is why we are over the moon to bring you The Ultimate Guide to Houston Photographers!  It is our hope that this list will help you to find the perfect family photographer for all of your current and ongoing needs.  From newborn photos to senior portraits, and from mini sessions to family photos for your holiday cards, we’ve included a variety of different styles and sessions to help you find the perfect fit.

Before we begin, we have to give a tremendous thank you to our gracious photography sponsors who made this guide possible! We encourage you to explore their websites, connect with them on social media, and of course – book your session before it’s too late!!

“I believe being messy over perfect means you’re doing something right. I believe in camp fires, pillow fights & bonding with your family. I believe the best moments you can have with your children are unscripted and hilarious.” – Christine Wright

Swish + Click Photography rocks to the beat of her own drum. Combine her extensive knowledge base on all things superhero, Harry Potter, and Disney, with her upbeat personality, and she instantly relates not only with yourself, but with your kids and your husband. Christine specializes in natural lighting {a fancy way of saying “I like to shoot in the sun”}, so most portraits are at sunrise or sunset when held outdoors. Don’t love the outdoors? She also has a studio in EADO. She encourages the use of any items {aka props} that you want to use to enhance your session. Let’s make these pictures exactly the way you want them to be!

The good news is that she is having fall mini sessions October 21 & 22nd at Rice University {limited spots left} and Christmas mini sessions November 18th & 19th in her studio. She would love to connect and give you unique family pictures that capture your family’s distinctiveness!


With three children under seven, there is constant movement in his own life.  Family is beautiful craziness, and he wouldn’t trade it.  After all, having family pictures around your home helps you remember the blessings, beautiful memories, and provides inspiration.  The photography of Kennedy Artworks focuses on the family and understands its importance.  Sessions are on-site in the Houston area and will capture timeless pictures.  

When is the last time you had family pictures updated?  Whenever it was, time moves quickly, doesn’t it?  E-mail Jeremy Kennedy at [email protected] to talk about planning your next photo session.
