Maternity shooting is one of my favorites! I have always thought that the female form all blossoming in the wonderment of expecting life has been one of the most beautiful opportunities to capture. I started shooting maternity in 1998 and have never stopped.

Over the years I have developed many lighting techniques that enable me as the portrait artist to capture the most flattering of poses. As the first installment of my now internationally recognized style of “Legacy wall of life” collections, the maternity session marks a new beginning for each of my families. Some are here from the very beginning and others find me as they grow their families. Each maternity session brings several important images for specific places to display in your home.

The first part of the maternity session consist in capturing images for the “Legacy wall of life” collection and are those you’ll recognize of my work with black backgrounds and sepia or black and white images. Those of mothers in black lace, father’s kissing the belly and hands on the belly with wedding bands. As Houston’s Maternity and Baby Photographer these collections are displayed in permanent exhibition at several local hospitals.

The second and third parts of my maternity sessions are those pieces of art meant to be displayed in either the nursery or master bedroom suite. The image featured here is baby number 3 on the way! Some of the images you’ll recognize in my work from these collections are of mother’s outside with long gowns, bellies wrapped in tulle with flowers and very sexy laying in a sea of roses, now a trademarked image!

Maternity sessions can be purchased in two ways. As a one time session of $250 and as part of a session package that I named “First year of Life” so many years ago. You’ll see me at specific intervals throughout the first year and beyond  and most clients choose to have me be their portrait artist in this way so that their families are captured as they grow. That is the difference an ARTIST makes! #alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography #artist #auntieArockstheshots

There’s a few things I love to shoot besides babies… it’s horses, cats and ballerinas! I was a ballerina and dance on pointe through high school and it’s a beautiful sport…although so difficult for me to think of ballet that way. My darling child has been here since she was a little and each year she gets more lovely. This year’s competiton ballet was a beautiful costume and I wanted to feature just how much more advanced she has gotten from last year with her turn outs, her arabesque, etc. This pose is stunning! One of my favorites form our session for sure! Houston Photography of childhood by Alisa Murray fine art portrait artist! #alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography #auntieAshoots #artist

Gorgeous! Wonderful! I am in love! My sweet little Ava is getting bigger and with each session she is cuter and her personality is shinning through! Momma brought me her great grandmother too and I just adore old folks! When she got ready to leave she said “I just love you…I just met you but I do, I love you!” What a sweet thing to say to someone. As Houston’s Photographer ,those are the moments that I treasure…. Flying into Houston from AZ to see me and trusting me to capture all of her childhood… that is the best! #AuntieAshoots #artist #alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography

Someone loves me…yes he does…and Auntie A loves him so much too! Houston Baby Photography is a wonderful thing indeed when you have a sweet baby and an enthusiastic artist. I for a long time struggled with the Texas “bluebonnet thing.” We would travel to some crazy far away space and look for a perfect spot and after finding one pray there would be no snakes or bees or that the best patch wouldn’t land us in a space close to big wheels keep on turning! It made me nervous, it made the moms nervous and the children could just feel that tension going on… and then it hit me! Fake Blues worked and could be moved based on time of day and the sunshine.. and in photoshop, well… let;s just say Uncle Brian does his magic and it’s a beautiful and safe and year round opportunity! Go Tiny Texans! LOL any who… I love the new ivy wall that we started working on growing several years ago…there really are so many gorgeous spaces top be photographed on the property and it has taken years top gift that vision and grow it for my clients! #artist #alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography

Houston Baby Photographer Alisa Murray‘s Signature sessions are a full session experience. When you book a session with Alisa A.K.A. “Auntie A” you not only shoot studio but natural lighting as well. Each photography session includes sets in black and white and whatever is going on outside at the time.

Today my sweet baby girl was with me in the flowers! We had so much fun with bunnies and bluebonnets. Texas childhood photography is not complete without that of course! All of our spring sets are in with irises, and daffodils and tulips! There are the new “Rock the Shot” mini sessions for the older children that just need to get that one perfect shot too! #artist #Alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography
