My biggest regret


I’m a newborn photographer, I did not get newborn photos. You read that correctly. I specialize in motherhood photography and made the choice to NOT get photos taken when Rosie was born. Why?

We were so busy – there were many items on our to-do list, and we felt like we were running out of time. Beautiful, quality photos are an expensive investment, and we were already spending money on all of the essential baby items we needed or wanted to upgrade. 

I didn’t feel like planning what to wear, and I knew I would be so exhausted in those early days. I figured I would capture all of the little things myself, since I do, after all, photograph little ones.

And now…

We don’t have a gorgeous full family photo, we are getting ready to pack up Rosie’s expensive bassinet, and we are still (and always!) busy. And we don’t have the one thing that will truly last…moments frozen in time.

You deserve to have these sweet moments captured. The kids will only use the stroller for so many years (or months!), the bassinet will be packed up in a matter of time…

Photos last forever. It is so important to me to provide you with a luxurious, stress-free experience. To ease your burden, I will provide you my client wardrobe so you don’t need to fret about what to wear. I will connect you with my preferred hair and make-up artist so you can show up in a messy bun. And I will give you my all of my golden tips on having the smoothest session possible.

And when all is said and done, you will have gorgeous, heirloom photographs to share with your family and never regret the investment.

Don’t let these moments pass you by…

Let me take away your burden and plan the perfect session for you.
