Family Life

Mama to three, wife to one, keeper to three four legged!

We specialize in capturing life as it unfolds in the crazy, authentic lifestyle that it does. Whether it’s hanging out with the family for the day, documenting milestones, capturing high school seniors, extended families or children, we do it in a way that is authentic and timeless.

I have been in the Houston, Dallas, Austin and St. Louis area for the past 15 years- I am obsessed with helping you tell your story through images. As a mom to three, wife to a total hunk who travels for work, I totally get how hard it is to get those moments captured. Scheduling, figuring out what to wear, I can help. I can even make it pretty easy and dare I say- fun!


    Karen was very professional. She was friendly and easy to work with. My kids are very shy and sometimes it’s hard to get them out of their comfort zone. Karen made them feel very comfortable and to their surprise they enjoyed the photo shoot. We had weather challenges and had to do a couple last minute reschedules and Karen was very accommodating and worked with our schedule to get the shoot in. I would highly recommend Karen McConaughey Photography!!

    I used Karen McConaughey for a corporate photo shoot of internal teams and employee headshots. She made all of my employees feel at ease and taken care of, and the quality of photos we received was above our expectations. Working with Karen for any project means you're covered.

    Over the last 6 years, Karen has taken quite a few pictures of my family. From senior pictures, to Christmas card pictures, to even a large group of cousins, she does amazing work. She makes you feel so comfortable, even for people who don’t necessarily like having their picture taken. The relationship that my family and I have built with Karen over the years makes every shoot even more fun. Karen is just a natural at making clients feel so comfortable. If you’re looking for someone to take photos in Cypress, whether it’s senior photos, family pictures, or anything else, Karen is hands down the best!
