Vermont newborn photographer / Quinton’s newborn session

The P family welcomed baby Quinton (loving his name btw) in early 2018. Quinton joined his family that already included  the most adorable big sister and brother, making this an amazing in home lifestyle newborn session to photograph. The big kids loved their new little brother and loved on him the whole time I was in their 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 but I have know Dad since childhood. It’s always extra special to photograph childhood friends and their families. To top off a wonderful session their home had the greatest dramatic light in the downstair bedroom, where most of Quinton photos took place.

Welcome earth side Quinton, you are so loved. I am  honored to have been able to capture the first “official” photos of this fun family.

 

I am still booking late spring into late summer newborn sessions. Contact me today to start planning your custom newborn session.

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.

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.

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.

Wow, is the first thing I have to say about Lauren and Tyler’s engagement session. The light, their love, and their trust in me to take a more modern twist on their engagement photos made the whole session perfect. I met Lauren and Tyler through a dear mutual, while they entered a giveaway I did last winter. They came in second place, but that night Lauren and I spent  hours on the phone. From that phone call I knew we where a perfect match as photographer and client. Fast forward a few months, the three of us met in person to start planning their photography journey for their upcoming 2017 Vermont wedding. Through out the summer Lauren and I have messaged back and forth about the style of their engagement session, we both love a mix between timeless and boho. When she sent me a picture of her dress I just knew their engagement session would be special. I also knew she need to connect with Rita from Stitchdown Farm (farm run.com/stitchdown.com ) for a one of kind flower crown. Lauren looked like a complete goddess for her engagement session, I can’t wait to see her on her wedding day.

We spent the afternoon walking through the woods near my childhood home, in search of beautiful light. The was air was warm, very uncommon for late November in Vermont. We spent a few hours laughing, talking about their upcoming Vermont 2017 wedding and really enjoying the beauty of a late fall day. I am pleased to share just a few of my favorites from their ever so perfect late fall engagement session. Lauren and Tyler I am so thankful our paths crossed, I am so honored to be a part of your big day. It always so special when clients  turn into good friends.

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.

The day called for rain (which never happened) the fall colors were so vibrant and rich, the wedding flowers were show stopping, the food was delicious, and the beautiful couple was surrounded by family and friends. It was truly one of the most amazing weddings I have ever had the honor to photograph. I am thrilled to be sharing some of my favorite moments from Tomas and Tessa’s perfect New Hampshire wedding.
