Capturing the precious life of a baby

My Photography

I believe newborns are perfect just the way they are.  I prefer the minimal use of props on a neutral color palette in my photography. The focus should always remain on the adorable and cute features of the baby.

My time in the fashion industry taught me one thing. It’s that we are each given a uniqueness to ourselves. Embracing that uniqueness allows others to want to embrace and celebrate that along with us. My art is about capturing what is unique, not about erasing it.

Every baby has their own traits, whether it’s a physical trait or a unique personality. Some newborns will sleep plenty in their early weeks, others will be wide-eyed curious. Let’s capture how your baby is and allow that beautiful memory to be remembered across our generations.

My Portfolio

My photography is comprised of two distinct styles – posed studio sessions and on-location lifestyle sessions.

Posed studio sessions leverage props and accessories that beautifully embellish the memory of your child at their newborn stage.

On location lifestyle sessions focus on the beautiful memories that capture you and your newborn in your home. Newborns are lightly wrapped in more relaxed poses to allow the focus to be on the home and family.
