I am primarily a studio photographer, where all of my sessions are done inside; but every now and then I have requests for outdoor maternity sessions, and I must admit it’s fun to step out of my comfort zone and do something different every now and then! I first met my beautiful client a year and a half ago, when I did her maternity and newborn session (*see maternity session HERE), and I was so happy to hear that she was expecting again, and it was another GIRL! This is her 4th baby, can you imagine?!! She looks absolutely fabulous. With her last baby we did studio, and for this one she wanted a totally different look so she chose to do an outdoor maternity session, and I love how it came out!

"Newborn Photography is my passion.
As a mother of three, I KNOW how important those first pictures are of your new baby. He/She is the most beautiful, and perfect being you ever laid your eyes on. You have never known a Love like this before. It is incredible.
This is the reason why I chose to photograph newborns. I strive to capture all of the Love you have for your new baby thru my lens, and to provide images that you will cherish for a lifetime of your newborn in the most adorable poses.
That is why I love what I do. There is no love in the world like the love one feels for their new baby.
I am a mother. I am a wife. I am passionate about my work and feel lucky and blessed every single day, to be able to do what I do."
