Professional photography services for new arrivals, expecting mothers and couples, and families.

Introducing the all-white, organic lifestyle room

All wardrobe and maternity or motherhood gowns are provided by the studio

As of June 2019, SBP has relocated to a new commercial studio centrally located in Uptown.

A new studio means freedom to create! The clean, light, and airy lifestyle room is designed to be utterly timeless and classic. Be removing distracting props and backgrounds, your gallery will forever be stylish.

Organic white family portrait studio

what session types are offered?

The contemporary lifestyle room is cascaded in stunning natural light. The ethereal atmosphere creates images that are fresh, pure, and authentic.

Studio offerings include squishy lifestyle newborn, family portraits, maternity sessions, and also baby milestone photography. While I do specialize in posed newborn baby portraiture, many of my newly earthside petite clients grow into longtime repeat clients.

  • Lifestyle Newborn: Designed for parents who may not necessarily love the perfectly posed setups of Baby in a Bucket. Natural, organic, and connection-based posing in which the focus is interpersonal dynamics and embracing the spirit of bringing home a new baby.

  • Family: Many of my newborn clients return for updated yearly family portraits. A modern and diverse gallery is created by showcasing several setups and combinations. These include, though are not limited to, the entire family, Mom with kids, Dad with kids, individual images of each child, a sibling set up, and also Mom and Dad together. I assure you when your children are older, they will cherish pictures of their parents at different stages in a marriage.

  • Maternity: Your pregnancy is an exciting time; your heart is filled with joy as you prepare to meet the greatest love of your life: your child. The unconditional bond, soft kicking of feet - you feel it all. Preserving this memory is a beautiful way to celebrate your baby bump. There will be a time where the pitter-pattering of small feet has ceased to echo and you will long to feel your belly swell. It's bittersweet though a timeless maternity session will always preserve this wonderful time before your little love enters the world.

  • Baby Milestone: Baby milestone sessions cater to capturing all things precious about the ever so purposeful and significant changes in the first year your little darling’s life.

What type of images can you expect?

You may expect a modern gallery of thoughtfully crafted images reflecting clean, classic, and timeless tones.

Classic and clean

Houston Family Portraits

Below are my four children, the greatest loves of my life! Lucy, Emma, Amelia, and Jack (who my husband and I call ‘The Tiny Tribe of Wild Women and Chief Jack’).

  • I would love to create classic images of your family, too!

  • There is also sister wardrobe, and headband accessories, in sizes 3 months - 5t.

Now Offering Lifestyle Newborn/Family Option

A studio family lifestyle session is also ideal for parents who love the images of Mom with Newborn, Dad with Newborn, Sibling with Newborn, and Family with the Newest Bundle of Joy, but perhaps do not like all of the props or the look of a posed newborn session. If a natural session with minimum props with your new baby is your preference, consider a lifestyle-inspired family session in which family and parents are the focus. If Baby in a bucket does not make your heart sing, these natural and minimalist portraits are a fantastic option for you.

Pros of booking a studio session:

  • The studio offers flexible scheduling catering to family life, such as little one’s nap schedules. For instance, scheduling around your children’s’ nap time is a fantastic way to ensure a successful session. The studio also offers early morning sessions which is a wonderful option to consider before dropping your little one off at daycare of\r for busy parents heading into work.

  • The studio is also fully air-conditioned which is terrific as Houston is known for muggy and warm weather. We also do not have to worry about critters such as snakes and bugs or those pesky mosquitoes.

  • The commercial studio space is also spacious at 1,300 square-feet, located near many hair and makeup salons, and also has full-time security and ample parking. A studio environment makes for more comfortable travel.
