Find out how our experience is different!


From this moment on, everything is new. There will be a thousand firsts and they will come and go at break-neck speeds. From the first time you hold your baby to the first time you and your beloved look into each other’s eyes as parents in this new family you’ve created together; this is the beginning of your beautiful new life. I want to help you fully connect to each little detail of those fleeting first days and cherish them forever through an amazing newborn portrait experience. With nearly ten years experience photographing newborns, I have developed a unique style that encompasses both rustic elements along with the clean and modern. The results are timeless, organic, and emotionally evocative photographs to bring you joy and complement any decor. I use light to set the mood of each image and to skillfully craft each photograph to showcase your newborn’s distinct features. Along with my experience with newborns in the studio, I proudly hold a certification in Newborn photography from the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International and have received extensive training in newborn safety and posing, and I'm CPR certified. I’m also the mom of 7 and Grammy to 9. WE LOVE BABIES!

Pregnancy is the culmination of the power, strength, and beauty of womanhood and the love that you and your partner share, and most women will only experience it a handful of times. Wouldn’t it be amazing to celebrate this in portraits you will cherish forever? Our studio maternity session is an all-out pampering experience. We will start with a phone conversation to get to know each other a bit. Then we will schedule an in-person wardrobe and session planning consultation. Your session will start with professional hair styling and make up while you sip a cappuccino or tea. We will spend about an hour making elegant photos that you will love. Within a week or so, we will have you and your love in to view the photos in a cinematic slideshow and help you design the art you love. You deserve to be celebrated!
