Lost Boys- Houston Child Photographer | A story about the wild child

Houston Children's photographer Maribella Portraits, LLC specializes in capturing the imagination and playfulness of childhood. 

The group stylized shoots are a way to bring a child's imagination to life, while creating memories to last a lifetime.

This months photoshoot was a little play on the"Lost Boys" from Peter Pan. We are mostly girls around here, so our cast consist of eight feisty girls, and one little boy rounds out the pack.

The adventurous gang of misfitwho have been abandoned by or have run away from their mothers. They live with Peter in Neverland and originally share his desire to never grow up. They are a group of distinct and unique personalities. These strong personalities demand strong kids to play them. 

Dressing up and getting dirty, pretending to hunt and catch their own food is only the beginning for our little pack of lost kids.

Houston family Photographer | New born baby boy makes five

 

Today, I am excited to introduce to you the newest member of the Bernard family. Baby Phoenix joins his sisters Avery and Karter.

When Theresa messaged me asking if I would photograph her baby boy, I just couldn’t say no.  Almost two years ago I had the honor to photograph their second daughter, Karter. 

 

 I vividly remember how beautiful this family is, and how well behaved their two year old Avery was during our newborn session. Without hesitation, I agreed to be their newborn photographer, with the requirement that I would also photograph their Family Maternity Session.

We photographed the family during a beautiful glowing sunset. The session began with a family portrait that included the girls dressed in adorable white sunset dresses. I was incredibly excited to see Karter as an adorable toddler. Avery was as sweet and well behaved as I remembered, and we breezed thru their family poses.

Mommy and Me Maternity Photos

We then proceeded to capture some Mommy and Me poses of the girls and their gorgeous mama.  Theresa was glowing, and I couldn't believe how perfect she looked just one week shy of giving birth. 

Finally we couldn't end their family session without a portrait of the couple and one of Mama holding her belly.  Capturing these special moments and milestones is such an amazing honor, and truly am so grateful to be able to be a part of such milestones.

 

 

The Newborn session was then schedule for five days after his birthday. Their session features a special portrait of Phoenix and dad embracing and sharing a football. This gesture being extra special because dad is the Quaterback for the Kansas City Phatoms.

 I had the honor of documenting their growing family and hope that you enjoy their photographs as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

Houston Dance Photographer | Dancers don't need wings to fly

Houston Dance Photographer | Dancer's don't need wings to fly

 

If you are a recurring visitor to my blog, then you know my love for dance is equal to my love for photography.

It is a passion that has never ceased nor been satisfied more than when I was a fine art major at The University of Texas at Austin.  Our lives change and with that opportunities, challenges and new endeavors take us away from our original goals and dreams. 

With photography I managed to go back to my artistic roots, to not only capture beautiful moments in portraits, but to create art that inspires me and makes me proud. I also, get to see these beautiful girls in this amazing moment. Loving life with the whole world there's for the taking.  

Dancers are by far my favorite subjects. I love when I find out that a dancer is interested in a portrait session with me. My head immediately begins to imagine and create her portraits like it's dance choreography. Having a dance background has also allowed me to understand how to freeze their movements, what to look for in their technique and how to capture their beauty. 

This beautiful dancer is among my favorite dancers to photograph. She is stunning and beautiful in her movements. We also captured some playful fashionable portraits of a teenager whose sweet energy is captivating.

I introduce you to our Urban Dancer.

Mommy and me photo shoots are special, intimate sessions that feature a mother with her child or children. The results of the shoot can make great gifts for Dad, grandparents, godparents, friends or Mom herself. The photos can be given out over the holidays or as a “just-because” gift any time of the year. Mommy and me photography isn’t just for little ones; this specialized type of portrait photography can work wonderfully with children of any age.

 

When you first become a mother, you are overwhelmed with the feelings of love and fear. No one can truly describe what it feels like to see your child for the first time, only being in that moment can you comprehend the love and emotions.  Being a mother is like having your heart outside of your body. Many things go thru your mind on a daily basis, including the heavy responsibility of shaping a mind, ensuring this human being becomes the best person they can be and their safety.  You want them to grow up, you want them to be good people who will go on to raise other happy wonderful people.

Liz and her son

 

I was contacted by Liz about scheduling a Mommy and Me session with her son.  It was imperative that we did the session in May, because he would be off to boot camp at the end of the month. Her only child has enlisted in the Army.

While she is a proud mother, like more parents hearing that their child will be joining the military; the possibility of war always looms overhead.  The fear is real, and Liz decided to honor her son and their relationship by capturing a patriotic mommy and me session.

Liz's son is a brave young man who is ready to make a difference in the world. His mother is proud of him and with tears in her eyes explained to me how important it was for her to capture their bond.

 

They now embark on a new journey, the task is difficult for any mother but it is our destiny to let them go.

What are Mommy and Me portraits? 

Mommy and me photo shoots are special, intimate sessions that feature a mother with her child or children. The results of the shoot can make great gifts for Dad, grandparents, godparents, friends or Mom herself. The photos can be given out over the holidays or as a “just-because” gift any time of the year. Mommy and me photography isn’t just for little ones; this specialized type of portrait photography can work wonderfully with children of any age.

All too often, Mom acts as just the photographer of family memories, always behind the camera, never in the photos. Mommy and me portrait photography sessions are an opportunity to change all that, allowing Mom to become an integral part of images that depict the loving, timeless bond between mother and child.

As a mother myself, I know how hectic life can be. We often lose sight of our own needs because the needs of our family over anything else. We prioritize taking care of our children, our husbands, the house, our finances and by and by, we start to forget that we need to take care of ourselves too.

I often find moms, like myself, want photos taken with their families.  However, we hold the perception of the ‘perfect mother/woman’ in our heads and we ultimately pass on our desire to capture ourselves with our families.

 I find myself empathizing with you in every way, however, thanks to my work, I realize the importance of capturing these moments for my children.

This is part of our legacy, your children and grandchildren are not going to care that your hair isn’t perfect, that you have extra pounds, or that you were frazzled and insecure the day of your session. They will only see the beauty that is their mother. They will look at this portrait long after you are gone and be thankful that you appreciated the importance of these images.

One of the most important messages you can send to your child is to have beautiful photos of the people you love most proudly displayed throughout your home.  This will reaffirm to your child on a regular basis that they are so very loved, as well as set the example for them of self-love instead of self-loathing that is so commonplace in modern society.

As they grow and change you will love those images more and more. That great movie or dinner date with the family is a fun memory but not everlasting like photographs. Portraits are tangible memories that you will keep forever, passing them on from generation to generation.
