“To gaze at the beauty of your baby’s face is an resounding joy. It is an extremely brief period in our lives by comparison to the length of our childhood and adulthood. If you think about it, we are ONLY a baby ONCE.
The rapid growth of a baby is a remarkable phenomenon which happens right before our very eyes. The ever-changing first year of your baby’s life goes by much too quickly. Every moment is to treasure. For me, photographing newborn babies is pure happiness — it is sensational to see the parents in a wondrous bliss. Knowing that I am creating portraits of their precious child is a wonderful commemoration to be a part of.
With the knowledge I have gained from my relationships with professional museum archivists, I make suggestions for very strategic, long-term planning for the documentation of their child. I stand by a personal mantra of “Less Is More” and “Quality Over Quantity.” I am passionate about this topic because it gives every child a sense of who they are and above all, reminds them how cherished they are.
I am always excited and deeply honored to be a part of a family’s photographic journey and a new baby is an amazing fresh beginning.”

“Life’s most precious gift are our children.
Their innocent hearts and unconditional love are to be cherished. Their presence in our lives is a joy which is unmatched by any other experience. My work as a children’s portrait photographer is deeply meaningful to me. To create a work of art for parents to celebrate a beautiful memory of how their children are right now – for many, many decades — is a goal I take very seriously.
They do not stay this age for long. All parents understand how fast time passes as they rapidly grow and change. Each year, each age and every stage is extraordinary to watch.
The bond to our children is strong and it is forever. Our love for them is never ending and they remain the most important people in our lives. The safe, heart-warming home environment we create for them is important. We may decide to repaint our interiors, invest in new landscaping, and we may even move into different home. These novelties, although incredibly nice, do not come with us. Gorgeous portraits can always come with us, for years and years.
I believe the eyes are a window to our soul. I want to see their wholesome, remarkable soul for the rest of my life.
It is an honor to work with families who deeply love their children. A beautiful visual representation of our loved ones reinforces and reminds all of us what matters most — our family. I did not choose photography as a professional career, it chose me. It allows me to give parents a gift for themselves to forever remember their adorable children during this fleeting time.
During my portrait sessions, my primary focus is on the children – they are special and I sincerely adore each and every one of them.”
