Fall Is in the Air | Houston Family Photographer

It’s such a joy to see my client returning again and again (from out of country), portraying the growth of her family, year after year.

Mom took her maternity photos at the same location two years ago. Now as a family of three, this beautiful lake has become a precious memory for all of them. The golden ray at sunset was such a gorgeous backdrop for their outdoor family sessions. Looking back at Annamarie’s newborn photos, I’m amazed at all her changes in just eighteen months. But her soft, blonde hair and sparkling eyes are still as attractive.

As for this year, mom and dad flew from the other side of the earth to visit their families in the U.S.. I feel so honored that they immediately got in touch with me as soon as their travel plan had been confirmed. I was excited to meet them again and their Fall mini session was just perfect! I always love to photograph before sunset for soft but marvelous golden light around this time of the day. The coolness in the air is an added bonus, as you know, you don’t this kind of temperature in Texas very much! 😛

Are you ready to hire a photographer to capture the joyful connections in unique, artistic, and authentic images for your family? Now is the perfect time to BOOK your fall mini session in the sun-soaked field. Only TWO dates are remaining. RESERVE YOUR SESSION NOW.

Hope for the Heart | Baby Emery | Houston Newborn Photographer

What do you value most in your life? I believe after the Hurricane many people have changed their definition of home from its physical address and structure, to the togetherness of the whole family. As the first responders and volunteers continue to rebuild our city, even some of you may be in the process of fixing or rebuilding your home, how has Hurricane Harvey changed your perspective on family values? How are you going to preserve your family and the precious memory with those you love? The flood can wash away every piece of your furniture, decoration, handbags, shoes, clothing… even your newly decorated nursery or the whole collection of toys. But you will never lose those precious images taken with me, as all my clients receive high-resolution digital images with their collection, and I back up regularly, so all my clients’ files are safe.

But you know what, these unpleasant memories shall all pass, our houses will be rebuilt, our family will bond stronger, and our love for each other will grow deeper. What left behind will only be these beautiful newborn portraits of Emery, taken just a few weeks before the hurricane. I keep looking back again and again at these pictures, and am thankful that her family was all safe after the storm. We may lose all our possessions but we should not lose heart. There is still hope for the heart.

Expecting your baby in 2017 or 2018? CLICK HERE TO INQUIRE ABOUT YOUR NEWBORN SESSION. Your investment today will be cherished for many many years.

It’s the time of the year to have your professional family portraits captured and see how much your child have grown in the past year. I simply can’t wait to meet with your family and little ones at my fall mini sessions in the months to come! BOOK NOW

Announcing Harvey Giveaway Winners | Houston Family Photographer

I’m so excited to be announcing the three winners for Harvey Giveaway: Siukey Payne, Janna Harris, and Mr. & Mrs. Krampitz! They will be blessed with a FREE fall mini session held in the next two months. My prayer is that they will be able to get back to their houses and settle down soon. I want their story to end with some gorgeous professional family pictures, so that years from now, they will still remember how God has blessed them in their time of troubles.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” ~Psalm 46:1

How to Choose Your Family Photographer | Houston Family Photographer

Once you have decided to establish a family tradition of having professional photos each year, you are probably overwhelmed by all the choices of family photographers out there. Before you make any investment, let me help you with finding the perfect photographer whom you connect with.

How to Choose Your Family Photographer | Fall Mini Session | Houston Family Photographer | Teresa Yiu Photography

1) THE STYLE

Now with the popularity of digital cameras, anyone can claim themselves a photographer. Then, why would you even bother investing in professional portraits? Because everyone (whether hobbyist or professional) has their own unique style. It is easy to use extensive and colorful props, but not everyone can skillfully control the light and composition, and sparkle the connection in your portraits. I often call photography an art, because a piece of art can touch the deepest part of your heart, inspire and give you a new perspective. The next question is , how do you know what style you’re most drawn to? Look around your house, the colors of your walls, your furniture, your decoration. Do you find a unified theme? Are you more drawn to modern, minimalistic, and clean design? Or do you find more neutral colors, texture of wood, and lots of white space in your house? These artistic images resulting from your family photo sessions should align with the overall theme of your house, because they will eventually become part of the decoration on your walls for the years to come.

2) THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Once you’ve narrowed down your list, you should read the About Page of the photographers and get a good sense of their personality. Visit their blog and social media posts as well. Are they friendly, patient, and loving? Do you share anything with them in common? Do you value what they value? I’m so proud to say, all my clients are loving, polite and kind-hearted, who value their family so much that they are willing to make sacrifices to provide the best for their children. Because like-minded people work best together. If you aren’t sure, it always helps to schedule a some phone call and chat with the photographer.

3) THE COST

I leave this consideration to the last for a purpose. You’re probably thinking if you can’t afford even your favorite photographer, why waste time researching about them?Because professional photography is indeed an investment. Before I go into details, ladies, let’s talk about shopping! How often do you shop? How much do you spend each time? To be honest with you, I don’t shop for clothes/shoes/handbags year-round. Maybe once or twice a year. My fashion style doesn’t change: I always shop for soft and neutral colors with timeless design.  So I can invest in good quality products that can last for a long time. I view family photos the same way too. You only get them done once a year, that means you basically have 12 months to save up for the photographer you so admire. The good news is, many high-end photographers are running mini sessions this time of the year, so you can hire the photographer you connect with for the portraits that match with your style at the cost you’re able to afford!

Establishing A Family Tradition | Houston Family Photographer

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart” -Winnie the Pooh

Because of the smallest things in my heart, i.e. my children, I am willing to make radical changes in my life, to be sacrificial, courageous and adventurous. Everyday, I hold myself accountable to intentionally speak love, act in love, make and preserve our memories together.

What about you? What take up most room in YOUR heart? How would you like to preserve your memories for the years to come?

Early in my career, I made a decision to focus on newborn photography, as I would love to be the photographer capturing the fresh beginning of your family. But what do you do next? Let me tell you, children grow up fast and you will be amazed at how much they change each year. That is the main reason why a lot of my newborn clients are returning to take family photos every year.

If you are a new parent, I strongly recommend you establish a family tradition of hiring a professional photographer for family pictures every year. I promise you, your investment today will be treasured for many years to come. Now is the perfect time to BOOK your fall mini session in the sun-soaked field. RESERVE YOUR SESSION NOW.
