Meet beautiful little miss Raina, who came to see me on her 11th day of life! Raina, I have to say, was the absolute best newborn baby girl ever, her skin was so flawless, not one peel, not one baby acne bump… I didn’t even have to edit it! She was so sleepy and I jokingly told her parents that if there was a description of what the perfect newborn to pose is, her photo would be right next to it! She was “textbook” newborn! From her relaxed fingers that didn’t clinch, to her perfectly folded legs… I truly could have posed her for hours!! She is such a calm little soul. What a perfect session that was!

"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."
