what sets us apart

Maternity

The miracle of pregnancy is sacred and beautiful. Every mama-in-waiting deserves this chapter of her story captured in a stunning way that savors the beauty and feeling during her journey of motherhood. I recommend scheduling your maternity session between 28-34 weeks pregnant when you have a nice round bump. A curated client wardrobe with bump friendly dresses is available.

Newborn

Newborn sessions focus on capturing the love, joy, and excitement surrounding welcoming your new sweet babe into the world. We strive to capture their sweet features and tiny details...their fingers, little toes, and button nose with baby led posing as well as natural shots of the whole family. We provide a variety of soft, neutral swaddles, delicate headbands, and bonnets. Newborn sessions are scheduled within the first few weeks of life and are held either in our natural light studio or in your home.

family

There are so many seasons that you will experience during these years of raising little ones. Capturing family photos is the most beautiful way to preserve your family's legacy and reflect on the growing stages of childhood. Family sessions take place outdoors approximately an hour after sunrise or hour before sunset for the most beautiful lighting.

baby

These sweet sessions are all about capturing the fleeting & beautiful milestones throughout your baby’s first year of life whether it be tummy time, sitting up, crawling, or those first steps. Baby milestone sessions take place in our natural light studio. We provide a curated collection of thoughtfully chosen baby clothing, delicate headbands, and handcrafted wooden toys to use during your session. Our First Year Collective is the best way to ensure you never miss a single precious memory.
