Sleepless nights, late night cuddles, sweet baby’s breath, smiles and giggles…
It’s such a special time, you want to remember it forever

It takes just 12 short months for your baby to undergo this incredible transformation from helpless newborn to active toddler. Babies grow and change at an astounding pace, and every month brings new and exciting developments. From pure reflexes to first words, from sitting up, to crawling, to standing on their own, and eventually walking; there are so many moments to document. Let’s not forget those adorable baby smiles!

Being a parent is tough, but this journey leaves the most sweet memories.

Look for my gallery below to see my style. I like simple poses, meaningful backgrounds, tenderness, and delicacy. I love light, natural and neutral colors.  My passion is creating timeless portraits of your babies and I concentrate on this during our portrait session. I love capturing a bond between parent and their baby as well, and I always take some candid parent-and-baby portraits.

If we have a meltdown during a session or we get together and realize that your baby is simply not feeling comfortable that day, I am happy to come back for another try in next available day. I invest my time in giving you the best experience possible, while respecting your newborn’s needs.

Let us meet to discuss your baby portrait  session!

Here are 6 reasons why you have to consider to invest in professional service:

  1. You have your own digital camera, or an expensive smartphone that is capable of everything. No doubt, you will take a ton of everyday snaps of your baby to remember each step of his or her wonderful adventures. But how many of those photos are worth to be hanged on your wall? They are really documentary style, but babies milestones deserve the best quality possible.
  2. If you are your family photographer (mom’s in charge!), you might already know that sometime it is hard to make baby smile or just make them be themselves when you take your camera and want to take a picture. They change their actions at the time, because they see something unusual is going on. When you have a photographer, your job is just to make your baby comfortable and happy, and the best expressions will be professionally captured!
  3. High quality memories require a high quality equipment that enable the photographer to provide consistent results in any lighting condition.  And furthermore, it require to have the knowledge of how to use it. No camera or light has ever gotten together and produced a portrait session on their own.
  4.  After the images were captured, there is always some “room for improvement”. Here is when editing comes to place to turn each valuable picture to an art piece. A professional photographer knows how to work with delicate skin tones, to edit backgrounds, and to fix any small things that might detract from the sweet baby face.
  5. Part of hiring a professional is about taking advantage of how they “see”. It’s a professional’s job is to bring their vision and artistry to each portrait session. Your photographer will bring fresh eyes to your child and will look at your baby in a unique way.
  6. A professional photographer will guide you through the entire process: from helping help you with outfit and backdrops choices to posing. Your photographer will pay attention to the every detail to ensure that you get the best images possible. The time of day and styling are is carefully planned.
