Houston’s #1 Fine Art Maternity Photographer

Womanhood is a story of change, growth, and infinite new beginnings. Meet the photographer who can help you capture that story in the most beautiful way.

And one of the most defining moments of womanhood is becoming a mother. As your Houston Maternity photographer and documentarian of new beginnings, telling your stories of motherhood, celebrating your accomplishments, and empowering your sense of self are the moments I live for.

Houston’s Maternity Photography Studio offering Fine Art Portraits for Your Most Important Memories

For many women, womanhood seems to start when they become mothers. And while motherhood isn’t where a woman’s story begins, it is often the chapter where you first become inspired to tell your story. New beginnings are magical like that.

We honor the fleeting moments of motherhood, celebrate the joys of womanhood, and inspire future generations of world changers through photographic artwork for your home, preserving your legacy for generations to come.

Meet Kristen

Owner, Principal Photographer, Designer

La Vie began with classically elegant maternity portraiture, but as the years move on and I see my clients come back time and time again, ready to capture the next new season of life, I am struck by the beauty of each new beginning. There are so many moments in a woman’s journey through womanhood that deserve to be captured. I will always love maternity sessions; they are where I fell in love with capturing women on the cusp of becoming, but I see now that women are always on the cusp of becoming….becoming mothers, becoming your company’s next CEO, becoming graduates, becoming empty nesters…there is no end to the season of becoming, and I am I’m just getting started telling all those beautiful stories!

A Luxurious & Relaxed portrait experience ensures you are well taken care of, from your maternity photo session through your baby’s first birthday and into every celebration you experience on this journey through womanhood.

Three Steps to the Perfect Photo Session

Consultation & Styling

We kickstart our journey with a friendly phone call. During this chat, I'll walk you through my process and take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Once your session is booked, we'll also meet for an in person styling consultation. This step is all about bringing your vision to life.

Capture the Magic

We'll meet at the studio for a day of being pampered! Your session starts with professional hair and makeup service, I will then guide you through your session where I'll use my expertise to capture the essence of the moment. This is where the magic happens, and we'll create stunning memories together. Your session day is wrapped up with choosing your favorite photos and artwork the same day.

Cherished Keepsakes

In the final step, I'll ensure your selected products are beautifully crafted and ready to adorn your home. Your memories will be carefully packaged and delivered to you, turning your vision into tangible, cherished keepsakes. I want to keep this entire process as easy for you as possible, so our art installer even professionally installs your wall art.

Kind Words

Kristen listened to every detail that I wanted for my maternity shoot. She methodically thought out all the details prior to my shoot and had perfect outfits already selected. She made me feel comfortable and confident. My husband joined me in some of the photos and he had a great experience as well. Her work is outstanding! Pure perfection!

As soon as I saw your portfolio, your pictures would not leave my mind. The way you put your time and effort into it makes it even more beautiful! They are breathtaking and your style is exquisite!

– Klaudia

I don’t usually do reviews, but I felt like I had to on this occasion, because WOW! This was an incredible experience. She is the best newborn photographer in Houston, and probably all of Texas. Even though our son was 4 months old at his session, she was able to capture him looking like he was a week old! She was gentle and professional as well as creative. I will definitely use her in the future!

– Angie

Kristen is a very sweet and warm individual who is truly a gifted photographer. Her passion for her craft is evident in her attention to detail and her commitment to capturing her client’s vision, while still incorporating her artistry into the images. She was extremely professional and did a beautiful job capturing my daughter’s first-year portraits. I will definitely plan to use her services again in the future. I only wish I would have found her sooner!

– Ana

My wife and I brought our newborn to La Vie recently and could have been more pleased. Kristen went the extra mile in every aspect, not only with her amazing photography, but the little details as well; like having snacks and coffee ready and even a nice presentation of the photos at the end on a big screen. The experience alone was definitely 5 star!

– New Dad

Kristen is awesome! She took all my ideas and came up with wonderful sessions for both my daughter and I. She captured the beauty of my pregnancy and made me feel comfortable and pretty. She was so patient with our little one and captured images I will cherish forever. My husband and are so pleased with her work and professionalism, we will be using her for other sessions in the future!

– Chelsea

Kristen is amazing! She is very professional and detailed in her work. Her photography stands out because she takes the time to get to know the family, working with their ideas as well as her own. She is very patient and artistic. I would highly recommend La Vie Photography!
