Family Session in Hermann Park | Houston, TX

Happy Wednesday! This family is so sweet. I got to meet them for the first time at my Christmas Tree Farm sessions last November when this little guy was only a few months old. I got to catch up with them again this past November for their fall family session and he has just gotten so big and so adorable! I mean check out that dimple!! (insert the heart eyes here!) We met at Hermann Park downtown bright and early for our session and he was ready with lots of smiles for me! Mom and dad found out they will be expecting another little BOY this year, and I’m so excited for them!!

First Blog Post | Snow Day in Katy, TX

HAPPY 2018 EVERYONE!! I hope everyone has enjoyed some time off to relax and enjoy being around loved ones, friends, and family! I know I have, but man am I glad it was time to go back to school. Mainly so I could sit down and write my very FIRST blog post and drink my coffee while its HOT! I feel like I am embarking on a new adventure with creating a blog, and I couldn’t be more excited for it! I figure the start of the year is the best time to do that. I have not always been one for great grammar, spelling, or anything like that (I’m probably making a mistake with this sentence now! ha!) so forgive me in advance. Either way I’m giving this a shot and am just going to write like I speak… which includes a lot of !! Since this is my first post I suppose I should introduce myself…

I’m Lara! I am the person behind Lara Carter Photography! I grew up in Grapevine, TX and then went off to Texas A&M for college (WHOOP!) and graduated with a degree in Human Resources. Then moved to Houston, TX and started my first big girl job. Fast forward a year and I became a wife to my hunky husband. I am now a mom to 3 adorable little boys who have stolen my heart! So how did I get into being a photographer? Glad you asked! I have always loved taking pictures, but it was when my first little boy came into the world in 2011 that I dove into the DSLR world. I not only wanted to capture his life, but I wanted to learn to do it well! Poor thing… his younger brother’s pictures as a baby are significantly better than his baby pictures. Oldest sibling problems. Four years, that flew by, later I opened my photography business after realizing the JOY it brought me to not only take these images, but to have them to cherish forever! Which is why I wanted to be able to do that for other families. I’ve had some of the best clients and am so grateful for all of them entrusting me to capture their family’s memories, new loves, and wedding days.  I LOVE getting to chase the little kiddos around while capturing their truest smiles. I love getting to meet precious new babies and watch as their parents fall in love with them! I love getting to join a couple on their biggest day. I love IT ALL! So thank you ALL for allowing me to be a part of these moments with you! With this new blog I’m hoping to be able to share more images from each session with all of you and be able brag about how awesome my clients are! I can’t wait! To start off… I’ll share some of my kiddos from the snow day we had a couple weeks ago! It was all three of their first time to see REAL snow!! Which is a Christmas miracle it came to Houston because that never happens! So we had fun throwing and rolling the snow! Enjoy!
