This sweet family of three turned into a family of four less than 24 hours after this session, so the timing was perfect.

I met the Gale family 18 month prior when Rowan was just a few days old and now he was ready to become a big brother. I think summer sessions at the river are my favorite, it’s the perfect backdrop for any portrait session. I always want my family sessions to be relaxed and fun, and the river gives us the perfect opportunity to do so. Rowan had a blast snuggling with his parents and throwing rocks.

Doug and Kristen welcomed baby Everett (I am totally digging his name btw) in July. Everett joined his family that already included  three older fur siblings, making this an amazing in home lifestyle newborn session to photograph. The dogs loved their new little brother and followed him around the whole time I was in the home. This sweet baby boy loved to be snuggled and wasn’t a huge fan of being swaddled. This was a fun session for me to photograph, not only is family super sweet they have great dramatic light in the master bedroom, where most of Everett’s photos took place.

Welcome earth side Everett! I am so honored to have been able to capture the first “official” photos of this fun family.

I met this sweet family 17 months ago when I photographed their first baby boy Rowan. When they told me this spring they were expecting their second baby, I was thrilled for them. Last Monday we scheduled their beautiful river maternity session (blog to come) and its a good thing we did. Baby Driver joined his family earth side less than 24 hours later, I guess he was just super excited to meet his family a few weeks early.

I spent the day with Driver, his big brother, and parents photographing them in their home. Rowan and Driver’s nursery had the most beautiful light which was perfect for this in home session. A perfect mix between in home lifestyle and “The Minimalistic Newborn”. I love all of the macro details and curly womb like shots from this sweet newborn session.

I look forward to watching Rowan and Driver growing and capturing every milestone of these sweet brothers.

For all of you that follow my work on a regular bases, you know that I LOVE newborn photography. After a few years growing my newborn photography career, I thought I would share my story and how “The Minimalistic Newborn” was born.

I started dabbling in newborn photography while I was pregnant our fifth child back in 2012. I spent the next few years learning the basics of newborn photography, safety and posing. Fast forward to 2015 I knew something was lacking in my work, I didn’t feel like an artist. At one point I thought about not offering newborn photography, I wasn’t happy with photographing babies in buckets or props.  I knew I was drawn to timeless portraiture and simple posing. One night I decided to sell off my 99% of studio prop collection. I said goodbye to overstyled, over posed portraits and haven’t looked back. I now offer my clients in home sessions both a minimalistic style or lifestyle.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite newborn images.

The past two years I found my voice as an artist, even being featured in print and on some of my favorite photography forums. All while embracing the style I want my work to be, all while giving my clients beautiful heirloom artwork they would treasure for a lifetime. Turning my clients stories, into my art.

Over the past year, I have started teaching and sharing my passion of  minimalistic newborn photography to other photographers.  I love helping others find their voice as an artist, I am very excited for this new chapter to grow.

I would be honored to capture such a special time in your life. Contact me  today to start planning your custom newborn session.

Over the past year I have gotten to know this wonderful family while our girls were in pre school together. This spring when Becca asked me to capture her sweet family on their beautiful Vermont homestead, I was jumping for joy inside. Becca and Nathan are the husband and wife team over at  Two Potters , two artists I completely admire.  It’s always a huge honor to be hired and trusted by other artists that you look up too. Over the past year year Becca and I have talked a lot about running a small business from home, raising children and our art. I am so lucky to live in area with so many talented artists. Go over and check out Becca and Nathan’s website featuring their stunning wood fired pottery, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Summer outdoor family sessions are so much fun and this one didn’t disappoint. I showed up to their home on a perfect Vermont summer night, a soft breeze with beautiful light. As we spent the evening together, I was able to witness how much love this family had for each other. Little miss Z, all spunky and sweet loved her photo taken and little brother followed her every move. After sessions like these, I am always reminded how lucky I am to be able to capture these moments for my clients. Moments when your babies want to snuggle, nurse and run around playing in the garden. I know they will treasure these photos for a lifetime.

Summer is that special time of year where I am finally able to get outside and start photographing my favorite past clients and meeting new ones. I kicked off the first summer weekend with this beautiful family. I have been photographing the sweet Carpenters for over three years now, and each session gets better and better. The Carpenters are always up for an adventure with their portraits, which makes my photographer heart so happy. For this session we went river side, while the boys played.

For me Photography is freezing a moment time, for my clients. As a mama I know how fast children grown, and how important to capture this fleeting time. I am booking the last few summer sessions and booking peak fall color. I would love to capture YOUR family’s moments. Contact me today to start planning your custom family portrait session.

Sweet Peyton slept like a dream for her newborn session, I didn’t see her eyes the whole time. I never know how baby will sleep or pose, so I just follow the direction of my littlest clients. Little P was sleepy so I took more of my “Minimalistic Newborn” style approach for her session. There is something magical about my “Minimalistic Newborn” sessions, the light and shadows, mixed with the clean bright white backdrop and moody black and whites. These sessions are mix between modern and timeless. I know P’s family will proudly display her portraits in their home for years to come.

I am still booking the remaining of my 2017 newborn sessions, both in home lifestyle and minimalistic. Contact me today to plan your custom newborn portraits session.

Sweet Henry’s mother reached out wanting an in home newborn and family session, and I was thrilled. As much as I love my “Minimalistic Newborn” sessions, I have a soft spot for documentary lifestyle portraits. Little Henry at three weeks slept like a champ, I didn’t see his eyes but for just a moment the whole time I was there. There is something so magical photographing a family in their own home, it feels real and honest. My dream is for my clients to look back on their portraits and cherish those moments that I was able to freeze in time.

I am always so honored to be invited in to a clients home, while capturing such a special time in their lives. I am now booking into October with my family and newborn sessions. I do have a few more sessions available, and I would love to capture YOUR family.

If I was going to categorize my style for family sessions it would be a mix photojournalist and lifestyle. I love tons of negative space and close ups with non-tradiontal crops, images that tell a story and capture emotions.  I always have a few goals for each family session I photograph. My main goal is forgetting about posed family session and really capturing the in between moments of my clients lives. These are the moments I know my clients  will cherish long after their children are grown. I want my clients to look back on their session with fond memories and know we froze a moment in time.

This session was near and dear to me, as I have been photographing this family since the twins were one year old.  Baby sister was due any day, so we knew this was an extra special session as it was the last session as a family of four.  We knew that the beautiful apple orchard an early summer Vermont night would be the perfect backdrop for their family/maternity session.
