In the first year

so much happens.

The first week is survival. The first month you might find yourself getting used to two hour spurts of sleep around the clock. Recovery is vastly different from one mom to another, but I would bet that one thing all parents of a newborn have in common is sleep deprivation!


You get used to it, but honestly, your memory just doesn't retain the details.

"I'm not just a family photo-grapher. I'm also a mom! These images are everything".

Your photos are the closest thing to stopping time that there is.

Welcome to Parenthood

Soak it all in...and when memory fails, there's pictures.

5 Reasons to Book an

In-Home Newborn Session

  1. Flexibility: you book your due date, but you pick a day within a month of giving birth.

  2. There's no better setting than your home and nursery

  3. The whole family (even pets) get to participate in the fun

  4. Baby can sleep comfortably during the session. You can too, if you want!


Never forget the firsts

I love walking alongside families and documenting everything from birth and beyond. Babies really are miracles! I recommend booking a Newborn session and then family sessions sometime before 3 months, around the time when baby starts crawling, and around baby's first birthday.


After the first year, I'll put the highlights of all of your sessions into one yearbook that you can look back on when your little one is a teenager and you're wondering why you ever had kids! But seriously, there is just nothing quite like the rapid change your family goes through in year one and I can't wait to be a part of keeping your memories alive and well.

Looking for a really good Push Gift for the mom-to be? Look no further.

Every parent needs this.
