Houston, TX Family Photography

I understand the juggle of balancing work, family, slobbery kisses and everything in between. That's why I'm here to make capturing precious family moments effortless for you. I specialize in creating beautiful, heartfelt portraits that celebrate the love and connection of your entire family (even your fur baby). A lot of photographers won't let you include your furbaby, but as a huge dog mom; I can't even think of leaving my baby out of the family photos every year.

My goal is to provide a stress-free photography experience tailored to your busy lifestyle. Whether it's scheduling a session that fits seamlessly into your calendar or creating a relaxed atmosphere where you and Fido can truly be yourselves, I'm here to make the process easy and enjoyable for you and your family. My passion lies in crafting authentic and emotive portraits that reflect the unique personalities and connections within your family.

We even have sessions just for Fido (don't tell the kids).

Let me take the reins and capture those fleeting moments you never want to forget. Explore my portfolio, learn more about my services, and schedule a consultation with me today. Because as a busy working mom/dogmom, you deserve to cherish these memories for a lifetime.


Kara Powell Photography serves the greater Houston area including The Woodlands, Spring, Huntsville, Montgomery, Tomball, Cypress, Kingwood, Sugar Land, Katy and more.

"We’ve been using Kara to capture our family milestones since our first child was born. She does a really incredible job on the newborn sessions - we’ve gotten some truly stunning images of both of our kiddos in the first few weeks of life. And we’ve loved her Tippy Toes package as the kids change so much in those first few years.


Kara is super professional and uber patient in ensuring you get the shots that you want - I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a family photographer!"

- Tara, Client since 2015

"Our session was amazing and I have never been happier with a service! I honestly had tears just looking at all of the amazing images she captured. I would recommend, and have recommended, Kara to many people.


Everyone who has had the pleasure of viewing our images from our sessions has been amazed with them and I have received so many compliments. We will be clients of Kara for life!"

- Casey, Client since 2019


"No matter the time of day, weather or mood of my little ones, Kara knows how to capture the best photos of our family. She really cares about making every session about YOU and satisfying YOUR vision. She’s incredibly accommodating and patient - which is hard to be sometimes with my kiddos - and she always surprises us with new tips and tricks on making every session special.


I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a talented and fun photographer to make memories with. I absolutely LOVE her!"
