When I first talked with Harper’s mom on the phone, she was ecstatic that I had a spot for them on my calendar. She had found my work in a portfolio book that was in the lobby of Lotus Yoga after a prenatal yoga class. “I finally found her!” was her comment to her husband…

All of my kids are now past this adorable stage where everything is new and is met with a sense of wonder and joy. I remember those wide eyes and creamy cheeks on each of my babies and how they would giggle and then belly laugh with a game of raspberries or just peek-a-boo. That’s…

I have parents ask me all the time, “What happens if the baby won’t settle during our Newborn and Family Photo Session?” And the answer is always the same. . . “Don’t worry, I promise you we will create beautiful images of your baby and family. Even if your little one isn’t completely serene.” Well, Miss…

“You’re not going to believe this. I’ve got to reschedule again,” was the text I got from Tom’s Mom when he was about five weeks old. Tom was born in early February, but his family had been plagued by illness after illness for weeks now. After rounds and rounds of ibuprofen and antibiotics, everyone was finally…

Bringing your newborn baby home is always exciting, but it can turn your daily routines into a hot mess. So, choosing to have your newborn photography session at home can be the little “ahhhhh” you need in your otherwise chaotic day. Little James here was sweet as can be, especially while he was getting cuddled…

Meet Dylan, the cutest little bundle of joy all wrapped up in a baby boy. His Mom loved how his newborn photos turned out so much, that she couldn’t wait to have him grow enough to get some cake smash photos taken. Cake just isn’t fully explored until you put your feet in it! Don’t…

Meet J.J., the cutest little 6 pound, 4 ounce baby boy and the absolute joy of his parent’s life. He was so excited for his adventures in this world to begin that he came 5 weeks early. Surprise! A baby in your arms feels so much better than a baby in your belly, so once he…

Sometimes you show up to photograph family and have to figure out how to make things work on the spot. This rambunctious family had both teenagers and babies, and I knew organizing 6 people was going to be a task for Mom and Dad on picture day. So in our pre-session consultation, we decided just…

When people first begin dreaming about becoming a parent, most of our daydreams are the same. Playing and laughing with our family and it being full of joy and so much love that your heart is overflowing. And for most of us, the reality of parenting makes you realize just how delusional those daydreams were….

Mr. Luke here has come a long way in a year. Looking at him demolish this jar of food, you would never know that he was born crazy early. He spent the first several months of his life in the NICU, so a newborn photography session wasn’t in the cards for him. But I did…

Meet Miss Emersyn. She was so adorably squishy during her entire newborn at-home photography session. And look at those perfect lips! She arrived the hard way, but completely healthy and has been showing her parents Who’s Boss ever since. Mom and Dad are completely in love with their darling little girl. As first-time parents, they are…

One of the most exciting things for new parents, after of course actually becoming parents, is getting to experience baby’s first Christmas. We all remember the magic that Christmas held for us as children and we just can’t wait to bask in that joy again with our kids. Little Miss Kate, at 3 months old,…

We all believe that finding a love to spend our life with is one of the most precious things in life. But as life moves forward, so do our dreams. The dream of having a family can seem so simple once you’ve found that perfect person, but God often makes us wait on his perfect…
