As a Richmond Newborn Photographer, capturing baby Thomas and his brand new big brother Henry was such a joyful experience!! Baby Thomas’s mom, Kate, decided to set up his newborn photo session as a mommy and me at-home session and it was the sweetest thing ever! 

Planning Baby Thomas’s newborn session in-home worked out, literally amazing! I was able to capture every single sweet interaction between Mom, big brother, and baby. All of the sweet baby snuggles, forehead kisses, and wide-eyed gazes you can imagine. I even got a sweet little newborn yawn!

As a new mom, it can be so hard to get out of the house with a newborn, I get it! Taking the time to schedule a trip to the outside world in addition to packing up all the essentials can quickly turn into a full-on excursion. As a mama myself, I can definitely relate! That’s why I love giving my clients the option to shoot their newborn sessions at home. I know what you’re thinking, “but my house hasn’t been cleaned since before baby arrived”! I totally have you covered there too!!  Your house does not have to be picture-perfect clean, for real! We can get you and baby (and siblings and Dad too!) comfortable in one corner of your house and work some photography magic to make your house look worthy of its own episode on HGTV!

I couldn’t get over how amazing Kate, Henry, and baby Thomas looked for their session! Mom bought the kiddos matching outfits with blue crabs printed on them. Kate wore a classic long sleeve sundress in a matching shade of blue, so gorgeous! Their classic blue outfits really brought that timeless feel to their photos.

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
