Can I say that I am loving the neutral wall colors that are so trendy these days? They never fail to give me the perfect lighting scenario for my Lifestyle Newborn sessions. Bring on more gray! I was so impressed with this Boho Chic nursery with all the blue touches for this baby boy. Mom […]

I’ve said it before, but first time parents are the sweetest to watch with their new child. There is no handbook or manual to teach us how to do this, but somehow instincts always kick in and mom & dad become naturals at caring and loving for their newborn.

I really worked with some of the most amazing people in 2017. It was a task coming up with my favorites, so there are a lot, as a heads up. These photos are sweet, silly, intimate, emotional and overflowing with light and life. Every time I look at them I want to giggle, tear up, […]

What a privilege it is to continue to be invited into the most intimate season for a family – the welcoming of a newborn child. I am always amazed at how calm these sessions tend to be, even though I know this season can be very stressful and challenging. But the homes I walk into […]

This little newborn was such an answer to prayer. I think sometimes when everyone we know is having babies or has lots of children already, we forget what miracles they are. So many factors have to fall perfectly into place for one little soul to be formed in a mama’s tummy…”for you created my inmost […]
