Photography based on authentic moments & friendship

Houston, tx

With Amato, you and your family aren't expected to be perfect. Think... low stress, high fun. You'll find us preparing for an amazing family photography session the best we can and then letting the rest unfold. Letting your kids be kids, toddlers be toddlers, and so on. 

Life is short, take the family photos.

Your family pictures are tailored to the season of life that you are in. If you have a toddler, we are about to chase your toddler and play with them. If you have older children, then we will do prompts/posing that will guide you and lead you into candid moments.

I have years of experience with children and babies and I believe it truly helps give you and your family the best experience possible. Take a peek around at my work to see if you think we may be a good fit for a family photography session in Houston!

Then when the time comes, I will work my magic to give you an amazing experience to have documented! TRUST THE PROCESS & lean into the moment, it will be amazing.


how can we guarantee an amazing amato experience?

If you and your person/people are ready to have some fun and find joy in the little things, then I think that we are about to have a good time together. 

Joyful hearts.

Photography is more than someone with a camera clicking away. For my clients, it is getting to know you and providing an experience that helps you feel confident and comfortable.


It is so important that you find a photographer that is the right fit for you and your loved one(s). I promise to show up with a joyful heart and with the intention to lighten your load. Your time with me shouldn't and won't be stressful because of the experience I provide.
