Rory ~ Candid 1 year old Family Session

Being able to watch families grow through births, first steps, toddler stages, and more is such a joy and an honor.

Jacob is One – 1 year old photography milestone session

For this adorable one-year session, Jacob’s mom wanted to capture him at this loveable toddler age—because what parent wouldn’t?! One-year-olds have a way of making even the most stoic personalities erupt in laughter. Their charming clumsiness and precarious moves make us a little nervous, but they also fill our hearts with joy. Their love of…

When it comes to your newborn, you want the absolute best for them, and that includes their safety and health. So when you are a scheduling newborn photo session, I understand why some parents feel hesitant and ask many questions beforehand – they should! More important than capturing beautiful first photographs of your brand new…

Grace ~ Delicate Neutral Newborn Photos

For this beautiful newborn session, I had the pleasure of photographing the daughter of a local television news personality. Meghan does it all and also has her own lifestyle blog where she talks about pregnancy, health, beauty, fashion, home topics, new parenting, and other things. She’s so talented, and I really enjoyed getting to know her during…

Hospital Photographer vs. Professional Newborn Photographer ~ Which is Best for you?

I remember vividly what it’s like after giving birth. Everything is such a whirlwind. Changing rooms, changing nurses, watching the clock and not knowing if its 3pm or 3am – it all blends together. After my first child, I remember thinking that it was nothing like the movies. You’re exhausted and elated and a little…

The Best Time to do Your Maternity Photo Session

After photographing gorgeous mamas and sweet little babies professionally for over five years (and after having four fun kiddos myself), I’ve come to know the stages of pregnancy quite well.

Twin Newborn Session vs Single Newborn Session

Double the cuteness, double the fun! I always enjoy the chance to photograph twins when the awesome opportunity arises – what a blessing to have two little bundles of joy!

The beauty of photography is that no individual style or theme is better than another. Amazing images can be created outdoors or in the studio and range from simple and classic to charming and whimsical.

Lorenzo ~ Deluxe Newborn Session

Each new family addition brings a new dimension and unique joy to the family as a whole. The arrival of the second (or third or fourth) child is just as exciting as the first. As parents, we can’t wait to watch their little personalities unfold over the next few years and see how they will…

Kairis ~ Newborn Photographer Session, 12 days old

“Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little girls are made of.” Since baby Kairis was born during the winter season, I thought that would be fun to include many snowy and cozy themes for her newborn session. When doing newborn sessions, I like to add fun backdrops, props, and outfits that portray a…

Gabriel ~ Premie Newborn Photographer

Most of us have learned by now that life is full of surprises and sometimes things don’t go exactly as we planned—sometimes they go even better! These two parents missed out on their maternity/couple’s photography session because Baby Gabriel was born crazy early at 32 weeks and 3 days at only 3lbs 7 oz. Although…
