2021 Fall and Holiday Photography Guide | South Houston Moms
Whether you love cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes, or the smell of pine and the magic of Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about scheduling family photos! Maybe you need new photos for your holiday cards, or it could be time to update the mantel or add to the photo wall in your home.

Thankfully, we are fortunate to live in Houston which is full of talented photographers, but we’re not ashamed to boast about the gems we have here in the Sugar Land, Pearland and Friendswood areas. The following vetted photographers have different specialties and styles that make them unique, but what they all have in common is they pour their heart and soul into capturing those special moments we all want to keep as memories.

South Houston Moms is proud to support these women-owned small business photographers and it is our pleasure to connect them with you. Feel free to reach out to book a session and follow them on social media to see even more of their outstanding portfolios!

Brandi is a full time CT Tech, mama of two beautiful girls and owner of Brandi Ali Photography. She loves hot fritos, sour skittles and cookies (all the bad things). In between working and taking care of her family, you can find her engulfed in books or taking a nap.

Brandi is a lifestyle photographer that offers indoor and outdoor sessions. She started her business in 2015 and then moved to Pearland from Oklahoma. Mostly known for offering styling options for her clients, she is a minimalist and it shows in her work as her locations and sessions are simple.  No fluff with props, themes or cheesy posing. Her work is full of joy, color and connection. Whether its working with families or branding, she will encourage you to show up and just be you.

Brandi serves Pearland and the South Houston surrounding areas. She offers field, urban, in home and beach locations.

The Black Santa Houston


The Black Santa Houston elevates Black representation and community in Houston. Founder and Owner, Magan Butler-Coleman, longed for a Santa Claus that looked like her son. This level of representation is important as children develop their racial and ethnic identities, and begin to make sense of the world around them. After two years of searching for Santa, Magan launched The Black Santa Houston experience in 2019, creating a lasting winter season tradition in our diverse and expansive community. In the first season, they sold-out in-person experiences, and made unforgettable home visits! Be sure to follow Santa’s sleigh by joining the mailing list at blacksantahouston.com, and don’t miss your opportunity to meet Santa this winter holiday season!

Hi, my name is Lauren Zinn. I define myself as a proud mother of 3 Boston Terriers, yes, I really did say 3 dogs. A cool Aunt to my nephew while being a good friend with a helping hand. I’m also a fighter, a nerd, and a red-headed goof-nut with creative dreams. I believe that every special moment should be captured and a simple smile can go a long way!

I love my COFFEE and ICE CREAM!

I love making random trips to go get caffeine or sugar.

My style is a combination of posed and candid. I like capturing special family moments of togetherness rather than you just standing there smiling waiting for me to take the picture. I use very little props in my outdoor sessions because I focus on you rather than what’s around you. But I’m all up for adding family touches like a quilt that’s been in the family for years. I do a combination of moody with touches of being warm and bright. I do families, milestones of all ages, newborns, maternity, and small events.

I’m based in Missouri City but I travel all over Houston. I even travel to Dallas and San Antonio on occasion.
