~Classic & Timeless
I strive to tell your story simply, without the focus on photographic or other trends. I prefer to use natural or organic fibers when possible. I craft and knit many of my own newborn props.
Hours are spent after your session hand-editing each image. I have a soft spot for black and white images and will edit many images in black and white to create the most compelling series of photographs for you.
Natural, Organic & Soft ~ I strive to capture you and your little ones in soft and neutral colors, gorgeous texture and beautiful light
I love soft, neutral colors and textures and I strive to incorporate them in my work. They represent who I am as a newborn and maternity photographer and artist. I work carefully with my clients to bring those elements into their session through clothing choices, locations, lighting and for newborns, the props used. I also have a soft spot for vintage and hand-crafted items.
Emotion & Storytelling ~ I appreciate the beauty in the relationships among family members and strive to capture that
I believe there is both a place for posed images and lifestyle images. However, deep down, my passion lies with lifestyle photography. If you are unfamiliar with lifestyle photography, it is a style of photography that aims to capture and document real-life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. I love capturing children in a natural and simple way, letting their personalities unfold. I also love capturing the interaction among family members, allowing the love and emotion to shine and be the focus of the images.
Newborn sessions can be challenging and a lot of patience is required. I am a seasoned mom with four children. Please know that I will be patient to make sure baby is safe and comfortable while capturing your newborn and their details: little fingers, little toes, teeny-tiny eyelashes, and itty-bitty lips.
As a mom who has been through four pregnancies, I can relate to the worry about being photographed while pregnant. Please relax and know that I will do my best to help you look your best while being photographed.
Memories Deserve to Be Printed & Viewed
It is important that my style and goals for your photography sessions are one and the same. I am passionate about providing a tangible product, whether it be a heirloom quality album with a gorgeous leather or linen cover, a hand-crafted wooden memory box with archival quality prints, a beautiful fine art canvas to adorn your walls, or a framed fine art print. While I certainly offer digital files, please know that my passion is with a printed product since there are too many digital images being held hostage on computers, smart phones and memory cards.
