Shared Moments

Katy, TX Family Portraits

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness

is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
― Dr. Seuss


Get to know us

"Normal is a setting on a dryer," was often said in my groups about late-talking children.  Everyone is so different and a little bit strange in some special way.  That deserves to be showcased in the art you are investing in.  I'm not a photographer, I'm a storyteller and a bit of the "mascot" in my family. I'm the one who breaks walls and catches friends off guard when they break through their shells.  I just happen to have a camera.

Lots of people hate family photos.  They sometimes feel obligatory, it's stressful: are you choosing the right clothes? What if the kids act up?  Can I really have great memories of my spouse who always smiles terribly for the camera? (Personal experience there).


If they hate it, and you feel stressed out, then you aren't going to be in love with your family photo.  I want my families to focus on having a great time.  If you enjoy your time together, not only are you going to get better pictures but looking back at your beloved pictures is going to bring back amazing feelings every time you look at them.  It's not just a picture, it's a memory; love captured at a moment.

We LOVE working with silly people!!!​

Watch Me Grow Videos

Imagine investing in a session video until your child graduates.  When you make this investment you will receive a FREE VIDEO from Iris in Bloom that includes footage like this from the very beginning.. I'm not ugly crying, YOU'RE ugly crying!!!

All of our clients have the opportunity to become our "garden blossoms" when they purchase session videos a minimum of 5 times annually (included in our highest package).  

If we, unfortunately, meet when your children are older, our garden blossoms have the option to submit home footage they would like included.  Similarly for clients who move out of the state

The Process

After we have picked a date and location, we will email you a questionnaire that will help me get a glimpse of your family

Our focus in on having fun and natural interactions. We always recommend bringing along your child's favorite toy to help them feel comfortable!  The more comfortable children feel, the better!

A few days before your session you will receive a confirmation email with the address to your shoot location as well a guide on some "day of" tips and reminders. This helps our clients arrive to the shoot completely prepared and stress free!

After your session, you will receive an exclusive sneak peek on our facebook and Instagram. Your professionally retouched images will be finished within 1-2 weeks of your session. They will be uploaded to a private online gallery for you to download, share, and print! 

Kind Words

The Lindsey Family

I knew I wanted some 18-month-old photos of my youngest daughter, along with our family portraits, but taking her photos always stressed me out because she never wants to sit still and usually ends up crying.  Kristen was SO patient with her and knew what to do to get everybody having fun.  I didn't feel like I had to worry, and we have some amazing memories!

Our Gallery

Thank You!!

We know you have many options when choosing a photographer.  Nothing brings me more joy than knowing you chose me over the rest because of the experience I bring to your family!

If you would like your seeds to be planted in my garden, send me an email at kristen@irisinbloom.net.  From there, we will set up a time to chat and to reserve your session time.
