first moments

It's so true that "the days are long, but the years are short." Especially your first year as a parent to a new little one. The milestones come and go faster than you think they will. This is why I became a milestone photographer - to capture these moments. As a new mom, you want to savor the smell of their little head or watch them over and over again as they wiggle that nose.

Photography is a way of traveling back in time — moments like your growing baby bump, your babies first days of life, or the way your family grows throughout the years. When you invest in photos of these moments, you are investing in your memories and the heirlooms your family will look back on for years and generations to come. I would absolutely love to help you document those maternity, newborn, toddler & kid milestones. 

For these fleeting moments, I capture every detail like your baby's sweet eyes that look an awful lot like your own, their wobbly first steps, and the way they cling to you when they're feeling a little shy. I take pride in capturing these delicate details I know you’ll want to look back on, just as I look back on my own.

I can't wait to meet your family and t0 photograph your family's story from your pregnancy to newborn and every milestone after. For more information on the collections I offer, please contact me below. My most popular collection is my Milestone Collection including a mini Maternity Photo session, mini Newborn Photo session, and a One-month Baby session.

I find that the most authentic family portraits come from doing what you love most with your family. Whether that be making waffles in the kitchen on a Sunday morning or a roll around in the leaves in the fall, my family portrait sessions document all the loves in your life.

I try to capture those beautiful moments shared between family members so you can remember what it felt like to look at your sweet little one.
