I love maternity pictures, and the creativity we can put together to create wonderful announcements, beautiful images and still capturing the monumental milestones of pregnancy. As a mother, I know how the bond between husband and wife only grows stronger and nearer with a pregnancy. I treasure the beauty and miracle of that little life inside you.

30 minute session


Newborns are definitely my only clients that I want to be sleeping. Or in their birthday suit, for that matter. What a dear and precious life, that tiny baby. Your little one is going to outgrow that onesie before you know it! It is so important to document their stages in life. Because the skin on newborns is so soft and furry, we want to get a glimpse of that little tushy and those toes right away! The first ten days of life are the best time for these pictures!  I approach these sessions with my typical style of capturing life as it happens. I will shoot a few posed portraits, but want to focus on Baby, Home, and Family around. So Mama: doll yourself up softly, put some fresh, neutral clothing on, and curl your hair. If daddy’s home, he’ll be in on it too. With siblings and pups, let’s plan to give them a chance to love on baby as well! Talk to the little ones about being helpers during the session, and plan a few snacks and favorite books for them to curl up with while they wait their turn. 1-3 hour session with lots of soothings, shushings, feedings and changes.
