Meet the Photographer

lara carter

Hi! I'm Lara! I am a natural-light family and newborn photographer, based in Katy, Texas. I’ve been in love with photography for as long as I can remember, and continue to find joy in every single session. I specialize in family, children, newborn, and couples. My approach to each session is, first and foremost, to understand the needs and wants of my client. Then, ensuring we make it happen! Most sessions typically include capturing the natural moments of you being you, as well as having a few of the more posed looks. I enjoy trying new things and exploring new locations. There's no such thing as a bad idea. :)

When I’m not taking pictures, I’m a wife and mother to three boys (#boymom) who keep me busy! Things I can’t get enough of: any and all chocolate, wine, country music, Starbucks, Tex-Mex, and spending time with friends and family!

Family sessions are a mix of traditional poses as well as a candid life-style approach. These sessions last about 1 hour and include FUN!


Newborn sessions are all about capturing the sweet little details and showcasing a new and quickly growing love in the family! These sessions last anywhere from 2-4 hours and are in your home.

Please inquire for newborn packages and babies first year package.

Couples & Anniversaries

These sessions are all about the intimate and sweet candid L-O-V-E between you and your significant other! The session is up to 1.5 hours and includes an outfit change.










I can't wait to hear from you!
