A S A B A B Y P H O T O G R A P H E R I have the wonderful privilege of meeting some absolutely amazing families and being a part of these once-in-a-lifetime memories. Aside from cuddling with adorable newborns and laughing with moms-to-be, I think my favorite part of the experience is that I’m able to watch these little ones grow from tiny babies to children that make the world more beautiful just by being here. I help people experience life, cherish love, and remember that each little baby, each child, is an absolute miracle. And a miracle only happens once.
Drawn to soft, creamy goodness and natural light, I try to reflect that love of simple beauty in my work, creating timeless portraits that will look as lovely in five years as they will in fifty. My sessions are not overrun with loud colors or distracting props, but instead focuses on that hidden dimple that only shows when your little one smiles with pure joy and happiness.
Speaking of happiness, I find joy and inspiration in my own two children, a sweet ray of sunshine named Samantha and a rough-and-tumble toddler named Caleb. They are my muses (in fact, Caleb was the very first newborn I ever photographed!) and I am constantly inspired by each new milestone they reach and discovery they make.
When it comes down to it, photography is all about remembering the love that we have for each other and somehow cherishing those memories for just a little while longer. And that’s what makes me happy.
