The Emotional Equity of Photography
If you’ve seen beauty or have encountered a moment that takes your breath away, then you know the power of emotional equity—the need to preserve a moment in time to relive over and over. Ahh, but memories are fickle and fleeting, aren’t they? We need something tangible, something to hold onto, that transports us back into that moment. When you gaze upon a photograph and feel that tug of nostalgia, a longing to revisit those memories held within its frame, the value of that image is immeasurable. La Vie Photography, the #1 Houston Maternity Photographer, has created an experience unlike any other that lets you relive the beauty of motherhood through fine art portraiture.
Photography is a gift. Life is lived with extraordinary speed, days tumble into each other, we find ourselves wondering how it is possible, yet another month has passed. But photography steps in and chooses which moments stay. You take photos to hold onto a memory, relive it. The very act of creating those images shows what you value. We photograph that which we find important.
It’s not only the beautiful and stunning moments that deserve capture. Small, daily details of our lives make up the memories that tell our story and are worthy of being retold.
Custom Designed Experience
To celebrate and cherish, to document and lovingly recall, to honor and to preserve. It is La Vie Photography’s greatest desire to see through your lens, to record the moments of love you see. To document and cherish the first kicks and eyelashes on squishy cheeks. To preserve the curves that make you unique and the beauty and power of your body.
La Vie offers a fully customizable designed experience to help you display and recall your story. Your story is different from all others, and we will help you tell it.
At La Vie, you can expect an initial, in-studio design consultation. In our light-filled, customizable studio, you will choose a session style designed to reflect your personality. Additionally, you will select your colors and full wardrobe, all provided in-house within our studio. We will discuss with you our product menu and view artwork samples to assist you in honing in on your personal style and photographic goals.
We offer the following types of fine art portrait sessions:
Maternity Styling and Motherhood
Beauty and Boudoir
Newborn and Baby
Child and Family
Smash Cake Birthday Celebrations
After your consultation, you can secure your session with a booking fee of $200 and a signed contract.
During your photographic session and experience, you can expect light snacks and pampering – an opportunity to rest, relax, and reflect upon your mothering journey. Our goal is to enhance your beauty and create a joyful space to preserve this memory for you and your little one.
The time for each session depends on the needs of each family. Ranging from one hour for Baby and Child Milestones to three hours for Newborns—we thoughtfully plan and design your session around you and your baby’s needs. We focus on your rest and relaxation throughout our photography process.
When your session is complete, you will return to the studio in approximately a week to peruse your art during the ordering appointment. At this time, you can expect to view a minimum of thirty images, finished in both color and b&w. We can help you select the most meaningful moments to preserve and direct you toward an artwork collection that best fits your desires and budget.
