My name is Ailee Petrovic, and I'm a photographer and lifestyle blogger [behind Snapshots & My Thoughts] who is married to my best friend, Sasha, and a mother to the two sweetest girls, Isla [born June 2014] and Emilia [born January 2017]. Our little family is based in Houston, Texas, but enjoys traveling all around the world.

Can I start off by saying I'm so glad you're here?

The idea for Snapshots by Ailee Petrovic was born in 2014, the same year that our daughter, Isla, arrived into our lives. After owning a DSLR camera for six years, I decided to take classes to better hone my skills. As I learned more and more, my passion for photography grew exponentially. I was lucky enough to have a tiny little babe to practice with! Snapshots by Ailee Petrovic officially launched in June 2015, and I am currently offering a wide range of photo services, which are outlined here

In 2018, I am going to focus on teaching others how to improve their photography skills by offering small-group classes, which will cover the technical aspects and then put them into action. After we do hands-on photography practice, we will edit the photos together. 

I've been snapping photos and blogging over at Snapshots & My Thoughts since 2012, and it serves as a creative outlet for my love of fashion, stationery, events, food, and travel, as well as another portfolio for my photos! You can also check out my Instagram account to get a better feel for my style too!

The mission for my photography business is to offer you a unique and rewarding photography experience. I want you to feel so comfortable in front of the camera that you forget I’m even there. I will ensure that you are pleased with your service, from the initial ‘hello’ to receiving the final photos. I hired Sydney Armes in 2017 to help make everything run smoothly. I'm excited to have her introduce herself below!

Please email me for availability and pricing. I would love to work with you, or feel free to fill out the Contact form to see how we can best work together! I cannot wait to chat.

My name is Sydney Armes, and I joined Ailee's team at Snapshots by Ailee Petrovic in 2017. I married my wonderful husband, Philip, in 2013 and moved to Houston from Dallas shortly after. We now have the most precious baby boy, Camden [born June 2017] and our sweet dog Lollie. I am enjoying learning new photography techniques, I am always up to traveling to new destinations, and I am loving my new role as wife and mommy.

I am assisting Ailee with social media management, content development, and a wide variety of projects. I am excited to help her further develop her website, blog, and photography course, as well as develop the process side of her business to make your experience as smooth as possible so you can have images of you and your family that will bring you joy for years to come.

Ailee takes the most beautiful photographs, and I am excited to be a part of the next chapter of Snapshots by Ailee Petrovic.
