Being a mom does not magically make the photos I take look any better than other photographers who are not parents. It does not enhance my ability to understand my camera or manipulate light to produce beautiful images. Nor is it the special sauce that allows me to handle and pose newborns safely during my studio sessions. I do passionately believe, however, that my mama heart ❤ plays a key role in helping me to create an incredible portrait experience for both you and your family! And here’s why…
I know first hand how precious this time is with your babies. I know that it is passing by way too fast. I know how desperately you want to freeze time so that you can remember every detail. I feel this in my bones about my own children each and every day, which is why I am the perfect person to help you capture the love, the snuggles, the family fun… all of the little details that will preserve your memory of these fleeting days forever!
Let’s be honest… 9 times out of 10, it’s mom who puts in all of the work to make a newborn or family photo session happen. You’re the one who researches photographers, communicates and coordinates schedules, location ideas, and outfits; the one who preps the crew for wall art worthy photos and decides what to do with your images once you have them. Does just thinking about it all sound overwhelming and exhausting?
I’ve been there and I GET IT! That’s why you need me in your corner! I’ll be there every step of the way… scouting photo locations in and around Jacksonville, FL and timing based on lighting conditions, suppling all of the adorable bonnets, headbands, and props for in home studio newborn sessions, providing guides and help for coordinating outfits and prepping for your session. I’ll even create and design stunning artwork for your home, so that you and your family can enjoy your portraits daily. Let me take the stress and responsibility off of your plate!
Worried that your babies will be too nervous to engage during your photo session? That they won’t provide genuine smiles? That they will be uncooperative and just want to do their own thing? As a mom of three and a former elementary school teacher here in Jacksonville, FL, I have loads of tricks up my sleeve AND the patience to get everyone excited and engaged in capturing beautiful memories. I will help you and your littles shine while having more fun than you ever thought you could in front of a camera!
