When mom-to-be contacted me, we discussed details for her custom styled maternity photo shoot … how to best celebrate the arrival of their first baby, wardrobe selections, locations, and our complimentary hair and makeup experience offered with our Baby Portrait Plan.

We met my hair and makeup artist at our studio in West Burlington, near Alamance Crossing Shopping Center, and pampered mom with complimentary hair and makeup.  We reviewed wardrobe selections and then traveled to no less than 5 locations to capture such a variety of images.  From water to nature to florals to fields and more … this is what a custom styled maternity portrait session is all about.  We make the most of the moment and provide such variety in the images we create.  Our clients receive the full experience, looking and feeling beautiful while documenting this incredible journey int o parenthood.

Have I mentioned I adore maternity photo shoots?  There is such a phenomenal connection between mom and dad and those emotions run deep, and that makes for stunning portraits!  Below are just a few favorites, so many to share soon!

Dream a little dream, snuggled up on the moon … sleep, sweet sleep, sweet baby …


Be still my heart … I had been so blessed to photograph sweet babies for many years now.  As a newborn photographer, you might think it would become somewhat routine to me by now.  The fact is, the awe of the newborn days is never lost … no matter how many sweet newbron babies I photograph, each amazes me in different ways.

Each is such a blessing and such a miracle of life.  Each tiny baby represents all that is right in the world and the future that awaits.   Every new birth highlights hope and peace in a world that so desperately needs both.

Another thing that captivates my attention (and that I love to capture on camera) is the parent/child relationship.  The love is undeniable; the joy uncontrollable in each parent’s life as they wrap their arms around their new baby.  And that love doesn’t stop with baby – it intensifies the love they share for one another.  Couples share such a unique bond after childbirth and it’s an experience that strengthens their relationship as a couple.

Witnessing all the love and emotion during this special season of life is one of the many reasons I adore this job.  I am so grateful to capture these special moments and to share in this journey with parents as they begin the adventure parenthood.



This sweet boy arrived in the world early and ready to play!  When mom entered our West Burlington portrait studio (near Alamance Crossing) with him, the first thing I noticed was his gorgeous head of hair!  The next thing we quickly learned from him … sleeping is over-rated! 🙂

He didn’t get the memo that babies sleep during their newborn photo shoot.  He arrived ready to play, talk and coo and honestly – we loved every minute of it.  He made amazing eye contact with the camera and when you’re this cute…you can get away with anything, including not sleeping.  🙂 He definitely made us work for it, we tried every trick and technique we have learned over the years to soothe babies to sleep and we achieved some beautiful sleepy newborn photos, which I will share on the blog soon.  For now…I was a little captivated with this bright-eyed portrait … such sweetness and one of mom’s very favorites.
