From the moment you find out you’ll be welcoming a little one to your family, you are filled with curiosity and wonder about the life they have ahead of them.
What will our baby be like?
Will she have my eyes?
Will he have your calm nature?
Are we going to get any sleep?
There are so many unknowns. But one thing we know for sure? Babies don't stay little.
I know, I know - how dare I say that before you've even met your new little love? But it's true.
The photos on our phones only go so far to showcase your baby’s beautiful growth and capture the love your growing family shares, so let’s document it all -
From your baby belly
to your tiny newborn
to your growing infant
to your 1-year-old
You’ll be amazed that the young toddler you try to keep up with now is the same little baby that was in your belly just a year ago.
And years later, you’ll still be flipping through the pages of your heirloom album reminiscing about each moment of their tiny little lives from the very beginning, and you’ll be so glad you captured it all.

I am so honored to be capturing this precious time with your new baby! Everything in this first year feels new, so I will do what I can to provide any possible clarity and ease. I’m here to answer any questions you have, give tips to prepare for each session, provide guidance as we capture your genuine moments, and give suggestions for the perfect photo gifts to give your loved ones. Even beyond that, though, please talk to me about your nursing struggles, how your baby has been sleeping, and the new silly thing that makes them smile and laugh. I am here for you as a photographer, but also as a mama friend who has been in your shoes.
I’ll assist you along each step of the process so you and your family are confident in your wardrobe choices, feel calm & have fun during our session, and receive heirloom artwork that fits your specific needs in a seamless way.

Of course! You are able to order additional photos for inclusion in the album and/or as tangible artwork. With the New Life Collection, all photos ordered from each session are received as social media files, and they’re all eligible to be included in the keepsake album received at the end of the experience. After the 1-year session, we review all photos ordered throughout the year and make final selections for the New Life album.
No, but many choose to! We’ll have a photo reveal & ordering appointment 1-2 weeks after each session, when you’ll choose your favorite photos for the album and decide if you’d like any tangible artwork from that specific session. Many families choose to order prints for themselves and their family members so they can enjoy the photos in their home throughout the year, and some choose to order wall art to showcase absolute favorite photos, especially from the newborn session. Many families also order gift albums or story boxes for grandparents after the 1-year session, so that extended family members can enjoy many photos from baby’s first year of life in one piece of artwork as well. That being said, there is no specific obligation to order more artwork or photos beyond this initial investment.
Yes! I love capturing sweet moments with your growing baby between the preset sessions, and add-on sessions are available at special collection pricing. Many clients opt to add a 3-month session since babies grow so much between those first newborn days and turning 6 months old. A 9-month session is also popular, as well as a mommy-and-me session at any point in the year. All sessions added during our New Life Collection experience have the same benefits of the other sessions, such as receiving social media files and including photos in the keepsake album.
Wonderful! I'm happy to begin capturing the life of your family with the newborn session. Typically families in this situation will switch the maternity session for a 3-month session, which is a great way to still have the full 4-session experience and capture more of your baby’s growth. Let’s chat about it!
Absolutely! I welcome people of all different backgrounds - sexual orientation and gender identity included. Please know that I value you, honor you, and love you exactly as you are.
