About   Me

how it all started

After having my first son in 2016 I told my husband I wanted a "fancy" camera to capture every moment. That is when my photography journey started. I began taking as many pictures of him as I could. I loved getting every little detail at each stage. In March of 2019, I lost my daughter when I was 26 weeks pregnant due to placenta abruption. I didn't think I would ever be able to photograph newborns again. After some healing, I first photographed a close friend of mines Fresh 48. After this, I came back and knew I wanted my main focus to be with expecting mamas and newborns. In June of 2020 we welcomed our sweet rainbow baby boy into the world and my love for newborns only grew. Each child is such a gift and I want to give the gift of memories to every family possible.

I can't wait to get you and your growing family behind my lens!
