Are you a mama looking for a simple & natural (ahem, no babies in buckets here) newborn, maternity or family session?

keep scrolling, you're in the right place.

Hi There!

As a mom myself, I know we don't get in-front of the camera as often as we should. 

I also know that we take thousands of images of our children that will likely live in the cloud instead of on our walls or in an album.

I'm all too aware of the fact that my children and yours are changing and growing far too quickly.

My goal is to capture these moments for you to use as a return ticket to a time past.

I'll never ask your kids to "say cheeeeeeese", promise.

step 04

I'm ready, book my newborn!

If you're looking for simple and natural, unposed and un-propped, newborn photos, I'm your girl.

I'm a mama myself, and I remember how exciting (and exhausting) those first few weeks were. My job is to make your job easy. The only thing you need to bring to the studio is your baby. I'll take care of all the rest. From diapers to bottle warmers, I've got you covered.

I typically book out a couple months in advance as I only take on a limited number of sessions each month as I travel a lot to teach newborn photography workshops around the country. Take a peek at my calendar and double check that I have an opening within 2 weeks of your due date. If so, snag it before it's gone, sister.

I can't wait to photograph you and your sweet babe! 

so much more than just a newborn session

Ready to Book?

YES, let's book it!

Wish you could get images of your kids natural smiles without spending the entire afternoon bribing them?

I get it, mama. I have 2 little ones myself (and not to mention a husband that enjoys the dentist more than getting his photo taken). 

My family sessions are short and sweet (under 30 minutes). Moving around the entire time, so no one is ever bored. I'll tell you where to stand and look, but never ask you to say "cheese" or pose you like a deer in headlights, promise.

After 7+ years as a photographer and almost a 5 years as a mama, I know how to get kids to have fun, give me their real smiles, and keep mom and dad happy at the same time.

Sound like something you're looking for?

quick and easy - even dad will enjoy.
