There are few things in life more beautiful than a pregnant woman #theglowisreal, y'all. Oddly, often times moms don't feel beautiful in pregnancy. I love capturing that beauty for moms-to-be to show them just how beautiful they really are and to create a memory that can be shared with their children in years to come. Shot mostly editorial in style, my maternity shoots focus on the mom in her 8th month of pregnancy.
Each of our stories begins the second we arrive.
The birth experience captures the moments big and small on the most important day of your life-- the day you meet your child for the first time.
Tastefully captured, the images from this shoot preserve the grit and raw beauty of a new mom (+ dad) and the precious newness of your baby, just born.
First Hour shoots are available for those who wish to capture the very first moments but not the entire labor and delivery.
" If you are considering her for birth photography, I'd recommend no one else. She will not only provide stunning, tasteful images that respect your privacy wishes, but she will be a calming force next to you. She appears that what she does is effortless, which keeps even the most stressful moments calm, and then produces images that blow you away every time."- E
Fresh 48 shoots are perfect for those who love the idea of birth photography, but are a bit timid to document the whole shebang. Capturing the baby in the first 48 hours of life, this shoot will preserve the details of your new baby and your brief but sweet stay at the hospital or birthing center.
Lifestyle Newborn sessions or “Homecoming” shoots are meant to freeze time and tell the story of your new arrival, settling into her new life at home. Whether you've brought home your first child or your fourth, I'll capture the current vibe of your new family.
Homecoming is best captured in the first 2 weeks after birth.

If posed photos aren't your thing, invite me over for a typical afternoon with your brood. Painting, baking, bed jumping, a game of dress up or a trip to their favorite barn, I'll come capture whatever makes your littles light up in delight.
"Her ability to capture our natural interactions so flawlessly and her talent of turning our chaos into such beautiful prints that we will cherish forever is pretty extraordinary. Extremely talented, calm, great with kiddos, fast turnaround time...cannot recommend a better photographer and cannot wait to see what she captures over the years as our family grows!"- K
eek! You said YES! Now what? Pictures, definitely pictures.
The ending of the beginning, so very bittersweet. As a working mom I know how heavy the anticipation of returning to work can be. Wanting to capture the essence of mat leave peacefulness, I created this shoot. On the honor system, I've decided to offer this shoot at a reduced price for moms who do not get paid maternity leave.
It brings me so much joy to offer this for working moms. Hope you find joy in these images, too.
"I truly love these photos so much. I look at them everyday, they bring me such joy. I feel beautiful in them as a mom and proud. They are moments as a new mom I with cherish forever in a time in my life I will never get back."- W
Beauty and emotion abound.
Capturing the moments between the family photo has always been my favorite. The small touches, hugs, interactions, meltdowns... Someone once said the days are long but the years are short. Lean into the chaos.
