As a photographer who happens to also have a Finance degree, I am wildly passionate about the business side of running a photography business. As much as I love each and every session with a precious brand new baby, I ALSO love crunching numbers, setting goals and making financial projections for my business and family. […]

We are over the moon to share that baby #2 is on the way! As a photographer mama, most things like birthdays, special events, vacations, etc. are documenting with a little extra flair, so you can imagine things got a little creative in sharing the gender of baby #2! I put together a little video […]

Sweet baby Anderson had the most beautiful woodland theme room – the perfect amount of baby boy charm and sophisticated sweetness for a nursery! I’ve loved watching this family grow from three to four over the last few months.

This sweet family asked me to take their first family photos since welcoming their sweet baby boy, Nolan! It was a chilly evening at Edinburgh West, but my goodness it was a pretty one with a beautiful golden sunset. We took these a little past the peak of Fall leaves and I gotta say, I […]

Starting a photography business is such a wonderful journey to begin! When I first started 3+ years ago, I was so excited at the prospect of potentially quitting my day job (check!) and growing a successful, booked out photography business (check!). But let me tell you, it didn’t start out that way. When I started […]

Bryana was the sweetest mama to work with for her Fresh 48. Baby Zander was due right around the holidays, and knowing I had some travel planned around her due date, we weren’t sure I’d be available for a Fresh 48 when Zander made his debut! Bryana was so sweet and really wanted me to […]

This sweet boy was a dream for his session! Baby Mason was a teeny little guy, and is so very loved by his mama and daddy. I love the soft colors they chose for his nursery. Welcome to the world sweet baby Mason!

I am always so impressed with my gender surprise families (umm, hello patience on a whole new level!), and I was SO excited when this sweet mama shared the news that they had a baby GIRL! She was the tiniest little thing at 5lbs 13oz, and surprised everyone by arriving two weeks early! I loved […]

As a working mama, running a business is all about keeping things organized and efficient! Ironically, my home is a disaster 99% of the time – laundry piled high, dishes in the sink, and a mess of toys almost always scattered in the living room. But when it comes to my business!? Well, let’s just […]

I’ve been watching this sweet boy grow since he was in his mama’s tummy! From maternity to hospital and home newborn and now 6 months, it’s a privilege to watch this baby boy grow and thrive in his first year of life! I love 6 month milestone mini sessions in the studio. This age is […]

I’m a huge believer that it’s NOT the gear that makes the photographer, but rather how the photographer uses that gear to create their art! In fact, I did a few personal shoots last year with an old Canon Rebel t2i to prove that it doesn’t take incredible gear to get incredible results! BUT. It’s […]

Baby Grayson is the most PERFECT, squishy little boy! At just 8 days old, he slept like a champ for his entire session. It’s so clear how loved this baby boy is! Thank you so much to the De Palma family for letting me document the arrival of your sweet boy through a maternity session, […]
