I love, love, LOVE babies! I adore photographing families from maternity through baby's first year. I derive so much joy seeing your little miracle grow and form their unique personality!
I am completely self taught due to my obsessive need to know all things photography! I've always loved 'taking pictures' but started really teaching myself the basics in 2011. At the age of 36, FINALLY... I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up! I began working for a company that does in-hospital newborn photography for almost 2 years and I learned SO much. I decided in October of 2013 to form my own business, I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful clients that I've never looked back!
I adore teeny tiny newborns and I am honored to photograph them right after they join the world. My clients will say I have a maddening patience while photographing their newborn, I really enjoy taking my time to ensure baby is comfortable and happy (and sleepy). I have learned a lot over the years and have become quite good with newborns. (I only wish I knew what I know when my girls were babies)
I have two daughters. My girls are my life and my inspiration. Over the years I have learned so much from them. I know people will always tell you that time moves fast and your babies won't be babies for long... but, they are right, I know from experience. When you're in the midst of midnight feedings, early morning awakenings, temper tantrums and diaper changes time seems to go. so. slow. but before you know it, they're grown. Relish it (and photograph it)!
I am a full time, professional photographer in the Richmond, VA area. I mainly specialize in newborn baby, maternity and first year photography but I also love to photograph families. I use both natural and studio lighting.
