A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing baby Grace on Fort Belvior in northern Virginia. Talk about an AMAZING hospital! The maternity wing was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It […]

As a newborn photographer, so often all I see is the happy ending: a beautiful, healthy baby. Tired but beaming parents. Older children becoming siblings. It’s wonderful, but so often, there’s so much more that goes unseen and undocumented: the endless waiting. The invasive tests and questions from well-meaning relatives. The crushing news received during […]

The hushed excitement pulsing through the recovery room. Three (yes, THREE!) big sisters, eagerly waiting to meet the newest baby girl. The sweet swell of mama’s freshly postpartum belly, cradling a newborn that’s been earthside for just a few hours. Fresh 48 sessions are magical. Documentary and unposed, taking place in the hospital within 48 […]

A racing tire has got to be the most unusual thing yet that has rolled into my studio. Beth texted me the night before Lilly’s newborn session and warned me that she was bringing a racing tire as a surprise prop for Lilly’s dad, but I was still unprepared for how huge this thing would […]

It’s no secret that moms love to take pictures. A piece of your heart is literally walking around outside your body, growing and changing every day. You want to capture every minute – especially in the early days. I took the above image when my youngest daughter, Eleanor, was just three days old. I whipped […]

Jaxon’s newborn session was like stepping in to a time machine. When Marie told me that her older son, Kenny, was just 21 months old, I knew what we would be in for – that’s exactly the age spread between my girls. Kenny kept us on our toes, but nonetheless we had an absolutely wonderful […]

There’s no time sweeter or faster-fleeting than the newborn weeks. The cycle of sleepy snuggles and loooooong feeding sessions, punctuated by one joyous milestone after another (was that a smile or just gas?!), seem like they’ll never end, but they do. That’s why I feel called to document it for my clients, to create art […]
