Color is my happy place,
photography is my jam.
If you think rainbow is a color- welcome!
I'm Tracy, and as a premier Houston Wedding Photographer and Houston Family Photographer, I photograph everything from engagements and weddings to high school seniors to maternity and families, and love to creatively collaborate with clients to make each session as unique as the people I shoot. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the simple definition of the word 'spry' is "full of life and energy." Since 2008, spryART has been synonymous with bold, bright colors, style, and lively, unique images.
I live and breathe light and color and can't even drive around the neighborhood without envisioning a shot here and a shot there. I am located in The Woodlands, and photograph in all surrounding areas of our great city, including Houston, Tomball, Spring, Cypress, Magnolia, Montgomery, Kingwood, Katy etc. I have traveled as far north as the lighthouses on the coasts of Maine to the white sand beaches of Mexico for photo shoots.
What else? Humanitarian work is incredibly important to me and I am on the Board of Directors for Direct Hope- an organization that does homeless outreach in Houston. I am also virtually teaching a group of kids from The Cheery Children's Education Centre in Kibera, Kenya the art of photography. These wonderful kiddos live in one of the biggest slums in the world and our goal is to produce a book filled with images the kids have taken.
I'm also the proud co-owner of two other businesses:
Camp Pixel Project started out as a graphic design/photography camp for kids, but has recently expanded to beginner photography classes for adults. We are currently holding our classes in The Woodlands/Spring area.
Mod Mavens + Co is a boutique branding and communications studio for small businesses. We help with brand identity (logos, branding, web design and SEO, social graphics), communications (PR, social media, copyrighting), and small business photography (headshots, product photography). It excites us to be part of other small businesses’ success!
What can I say? I LOVE my job(s)... I get to make people happy for a living!
I’m a wife, a mom of five, a reluctant cook, a live music junkie, and a complete and utter book nerd. In my spare time, I like to think about going to the gym and laugh till I cry. This is more than a job. I'm on a mission to create ART and to add more color and style to your walls... and your life! From selecting outfits, to designing wall galleries in your space (see examples here), I will hold your hand every step of the way. If you are a family in any stage of life, from planning a wedding, to maternity, to a house full of toddlers, to a senior heading off to college and need some light and color in your life, let's chat!

Tracy has been taking pictures for me for years! She knows how to manage a big family and capture colorful moments ! I've trusted Tracy with our Christmas cards, our engagement shoot, and most recently our wedding...she's so good!

"Blown away. Totally blown away by my daughter's senior photographs. She was a bit nervous before the session, but Tracy immediately put her at ease and made her feel as beautiful as she is. We are so pleased with the results. A true talent.
