I want you to remember the little things. The way your baby's ear crinkles, or their little chin roll. It's about remembering them just the way they are. I do a lot of in arms, natural frames of how you would normally snuggle your baby to sleep. You won't find any crazy poses or props here. I will gently pose so you have guidance in those first few weeks where most things are a haze. I want you to look back an instantly remember the feeling of having your baby close against your heart.
The day your baby is born is something you will never forget. I want to capture your strength and the beauty that bringing life into the world is. It doesn't have to be a scary event. It can hold so much love and peace. Every mother deserves to see how much strength she has.
Romantic, dreamy, and real. Capturing how it felt right then.
I didn't grow up in Michigan but it has become my favorite place to be. I live in a small town on a couple acres with my husband and two kids. I always wanted to be a mother and when we got pregnant with our first I thought everything was so magical. I love hearing other women's birth stories and the things they love about motherhood. I am drawn to photographing pregnancy, newborns, and birth. I finally felt like 'me' when I became a mother and even more so when I started taking pictures of this journey for other moms. My favorite pictures of my family are where you see me interacting with my kids. They are both so different and capturing that is what I want hung on the walls in my home.
Whenever I could I enrolled in art classes and design throughout college. I remember thinking that they were the 'just for fun' classes but I should of known then that it was in my heart. I finally bought my first camera right after college but didn't really start taking it seriously until I had my kids and found my area of passion.
My sessions are relaxed, lots of play and getting those moments of how it feels right then. I will gently pose so that you have some guidance but my goal is to always capture you how you are.
