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.

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.

I can’t believe this family session has taken me so long to blog. This was my sixth family session with Oliver and his parents and this has to be my favorite to date. We spent a lovely Vermont summer evening down by the river, while Oliver played in the water, throwing rocks and snuggling with his mom.

I look forward to all of my upcoming summer family sessions. I still have a limited amount of summer sessions available open for June and August. If you are interested in booking my dates, feel free to contact for more information.

It’s late fall in Vermont and I am already missing the warmth of a New England summer. So what better way to remember a beautiful Vermont summer day than with one of my favorite sessions of the year.

Molly and her Mom Jolee, came all the way from Boston for their ” Mommy and Me” river session. I have known Jolee since we were children, and it is always a honor to capture life long friend’s special moments. Baby Molly was a dream for her session, with those big brown eyes and sweet little cheeks. As any mother knows children grow up too fast and taking the time to have professional photos is important. I know Molly and her Mom will love and cherish these photos for a lifetime.

Newborn photography is something I am quite passionate about. In the beginning my style was very different. When I first started out, I would have very stylized sessions, and over time I noticed I was drawn as an artist to the simple photos of my newborn clients. This past year I have followed that path to simple more baby lead posing, a mix between lifestyle and studio portraiture. I took a leap of faith when it came to my business and work and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My small Vermont studio took on a full remodel, I sold off everything I had, and started with a clean slate. Walls were painted, setups were simplified with a mix between modern and timeless, and finally a new business name and website rolled out.

When Sophia’s mother contacted late summer to inquire about a possible newborn session, I knew from the moment we spoke we were a perfect match as photographer and client. She told me that she was really drawn to to the simple and timelessness of my studio newborn portraits. I am thrilled when clients say they “sought me out for my style” and they “completely trust me for my vision” for their newborn session. Sophia’s session was all about her infancy and parents, a time that any parent will tell you goes by in a blink of eye. I know Sophia’s parents will cherish her photos for years to come and will proudly display them in their home.
