Thought-Provokers: The Woodlands

Houston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around The Woodlands that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Kara Powell

This little business has continued to grow and thrive. I absolutely love getting to know my clients and spending time with them, in their homes is an honor. Most of my original clients are still with me, and I so love to see all of those sweet babies grow into tween and teens. Capturing memories is an honor that I do not take lightly. Read more>>

When it comes to inspiration, colorism plays a big role in today’s society; it pushes me to continue to work with men of all shades to showcase that we are magical and beautiful. Men should have an equal opportunity in the fashion industry as women. My style of photography has a vintage/throwback aesthetic, and when preparing for a shoot, I always make sure my color are well put together. Read more>>

Alexis Mondragon

I started a fashion blog that forced me out of my comfort zone and made me take pictures and post them continuously. The more I dressed well, the more my friends would say I should do modeling and it lead me to the right people and it went from one to another to another, and I’m enjoying the ride. Read more>>

I want to get the moment you do not look at the camera and capture that glimpse into your heart. I have done maternity, horse shows, portraits, and family events. Lifestyle photography speaks to me in a way that traditional posed portraits do not. It’s those looks out of the corner of your eye, the natural body language, and the bond between people and their animals that I hope people see. Read more>>

Holly Celestine

I found myself working as an executive recruiter. During my 18 years of “Executive Corporate America Life”, I devoted my spare time and countless hours doing research, as well as carrying out my holistic and alternative wellness training which consisted of Massage Therapy School, Reiki, BodyTalk, and then I discovered Biofield Tuning through a youtube video I found from Eileen McKusick. Read more>>

Melanie Meeks

We used to produce quite a bit of printed content and knew the audience would be physically holding and flipping through the information we were compiling. Now so much of what we create is viewed electronically and in a shorter amount of time. It’s a challenge to find ways to get and keep the attention of the audience we are wanting to reach. Read more>>

Jeremy Hsu

I studied graphic design as a hobby and applied my pencil and paper illustrations into a digital space. I quickly discovered the opportunities behind an artistic hand accompanied with public interest and elevated my craft into tangible products at Pensole Footwear Design Academy in Portland, OR a few months after graduation. I continue to use my illustrations as a medium to keep my creativity sharp and a platform for business endeavors. Read more>>

LeDarion Carter

My journey into photography was an unlikely one. I was a recent graduate in mechanical engineering from Tuskegee University awaiting a job opportunity when I stumbled upon a camera owned by a friend. I quickly took interest simply because I saw it as a creative outlet. Read more>>

Chris Bodine

I was always into art as a kid, but drawing and painting are all very time consuming, and the older I got, the harder it was to find the time. Then a friend’s dad offered to sell me his camera when he upgraded, and I bought it from him. I started just photographing anything like landscapes, random objects, or street candids. Read more>>

Jennifer Pisani

I was photographing anything and everything but then started to really focus on families and graduating seniors. I love how a photo can tell a story or can bring back a feeling. For me seeing my clients’ reaction when looking at their photos fills me such joy. I get so inspired by my clients when I meet with them to discuss and plan what their photo session will entail. Read more>>

Jeannette Rodriguez

My love for photography began when I was 15 years old, and I was given my first Polaroid camera. From there, I started venturing into other film cameras and digital photography. At a very young age, I was already building my portfolio on Flickr and taking photos of moments that inspired me. Read more>>

Ejay Mallard

Los Angeles & Houston have been the settings and proved to be life’s greatest teachers, behind experience, for him. The cities provided much-needed joy and pain that helps mold him into a young man that carries hate in his vision but love in his heart. Read more>>

Megan Hicks

I took painting classes a few years before my daughter was born, but I was still searching for a medium that I didn’t get bored of after a few months. About five years ago I threw away all of my art supplies except for a few paints and my embroidery supplies. Read more>>
