"She found when she mothered her own way, she mothered her best way"

I am a mom to littles myself, and I know how fleeting it can be. When I became a mom for the first time, I realized all the cliches are cliches because they are true. It does go quick. They are only so little for so long, especially as fresh newborns. One moment they are snuggled up on your chest, and the next they are running around you in circles.

I believe in the importance of documenting your child's life at all ages, but your parenting journey is important, too. And trust me, your child wants to see you in the photos alongside them.


I do not have a studio. All sessions take place in your home or on-location. However, I do know of studios in the area available for rental if that interests you.

Head over to my contact page and send me your information. We can discuss what you're looking for, whether that's an in-home lifestyle session, a spot special to your family, or a local park. If you decide you'd like to book a family session with me, I'll send over a contract and an invoice for a retainer to secure a spot on my calendar. Then you're set!

Once your baby has made their arrival, you'll simply let me know and we will pick a date that works for us all. When we book the newborn session is really up to you and how well you feel postpartum. Some parents feel ready 7-10 days postpartum, and some rather wait a month.

I most often secure contracts with parents in the third trimester. As I fill my calendar with clients' due dates in advance, I recommend reaching out soon! This is to be sure I know I'll be available around your due date and I don't take on too many clients.

To start, head over to my contact page and send over your due date. I'll send over detailed pricing to review.


Mini sessions are a pillar of my business, offering a more affordable option for families who only need a small number of pictures. These are great for families with young kids, maternity sessions, or for families with teenagers. They are offered in the spring and the fall.


I offer family and milestone sessions through the year, whether that be a lifestyle session in your home, a local park, or wherever is special to your family. I do offer extended family sessions, which begin at $750.

Family Sessions


I specialize in lifestyle newborn sessions in my clients' homes. These sessions are filled with you all snuggled up as a family, and less about newborn posing. Newborn sessions are up to 90 minutes in length and include your digital images ready to download.
