My style


Photography is more than just a picture, it’s an art form. And there is no better subject than your newborn baby.

I started my business 6 years ago, and it’s still my passion, especially the newborn sessions. I am a pediatric nurse practitioner by trade, so I have a lot of experience holding babies! You can rest assured that your precious newborn is in good hands during our photo shoot. Many parents have commented on my patience with the crying babies, and they are thrilled with my calming methods….all part of the days work! 🙂

I would love to get to know you by scheduling a maternity session for you before the baby arrives! You can schedule that now, even if you’re not too far along.  And at that session we can start planning for the much anticipated newborn session! 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you, and answering any questions you may have.

Newborns are my absolute favorite subject to photograph! It takes a certain personality type to be a great newborn photographer. The one word used most by my clients to describe me is “patient“. My time with you and your new baby is never rushed. I have been trained for newborn photography posing and proper technique to ensure your baby is safe during our session. I also have two children of my own and feel completely at ease holding and calming your baby. The first two weeks of your baby’s life is such a special time (and such a blur)! Your baby will never be this small, cuddley, sleepy, curly and perfectly new again! I want to capture those tiny details, special moments and little expressions in custom photography that you will love forever.

Newborns are photographed within the first 2 weeks after birth – it is important to contact me  before your baby arrives!
