  • Yvette Michelle Portraits is a boutique portrait photographer in Beaumont, Texas specializing in maternity, birth and babies up to one year of age. Her natural-light studio in downtown Beaumont offers the privacy, convenience and elegant setting that is integral to an amazing portrait experience. Please click one of the galleries below to view a sampling of her work or click HERE to take a peek at her natural light studio located in historic downtown Beaumont.

I don’t think I’ve ever been quite this excited about a mini session location before! Last night was the first session there and I just couldn’t be more giddy about it! This is hands down the most beautiful location in Southeast Texas in my humble opinion and it’s a photographer’s dream!

The Cypress trees surrounding the main pond on the property are just beginning to turn and I can’t WAIT to see how much they have changed next week! For those of you scheduled for a Fall Family Mini, this should help you with planning your outfits. I usually suggest muted neutrals and earth tones which would look LOVELY at this location, but you could also wear rich jewel tones, like this family did. Remember that “matchy matchy” is usually not the best plan. Just stick within the same color family and you’ll be golden!


  • Paula Rawls Measel - Awesome! Love them all.ReplyCancel

  • Joan Lori - They turned out so good … what an amazing photographer.

  • Amy Wilson - Love. Amy

I have teamed up with Posh Baby Co. on so many things over the last 2 years that I’ve sort of become like one of the team over there and I love those girls and all the beautiful things they carry (you can ask my nieces who have been the recipients of plenty of Posh gifts!).

Recently, they have added an online store (click HERE to visit!), so if you’re anything like me, this is a HUGE plus! I really try to buy local but the convenience of online shopping is soooooo tempting, so this combines the beauty of both:)In celebration of this new feature at Posh Baby, I would like to give away 3 items from their online store AND a $50 gift card to YMP which can be used for any product or package from a past or future YMP session! I’m hoping to make Winning Wednesday a monthly event, but for now, let’s get this party started!

First, a book! I’m a book lover and so is my son, so a good collection of children books was a must for me as a toddler mom. This one looks fun! Just click the photo to view the item in the Posh Online Store!

It’s finally time to announce the Posh Baby Santa Minis details!!!

This is my third year capturing these adorable moments for Posh Baby and I couldn’t be more excited about this year!

The sessions will be held at Posh Baby’s new location just a few doors down from the old location on Wednesday, November 12th and Thursday, November 13th between 3PM and 7PM (yes, they are staying open an hour late just for YOU!).

These sessions will be even more special than ever before! Unlike years past where your child just has a minute or two with Santa, this year, we are scheduling TEN MINUTES with Santa for each family! This will give Santa an opportunity to read “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” to your child and really make the session a magical experience:)

The 10-minute sessions are $95 for up to two children and $10 each for additional children. Within two weeks of the session, you will receive a minimum of 5 full-size, high-resolution images in a private online gallery along with a print release. Prints can be ordered directly from your gallery with no minimum order, or you’re welcome to print at the lab of your choice.

To book a session, please click “Contact Me” from my home page and let me know what date and time works best for your family  and we will get you set.

While this isn’t the exact set that will be used, this is the Santa that will be used and the set colors will be a deep turquoise and gold and it promises to be Posh-tastic as always (you can see a hint of the color scheme in the tree decorations)!

Scroll down below the test shoot images to see the available time slots (I’ll do my best to update the available time slots each night)
