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.

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.

Vermont newborn photographer.

Corbin at four weeks old was a little older than my normal newborn session, but he was still so sleepy.  He has the chubbiest cheeks, longest eyelashes, and a beautiful head of dark brown hair. His whole family is over the moon with him and I don’t blame them.  There is nothing better than spending a cold Vermont day in my tiny studio while photographing (and possibly a lot of baby snuggles) a sweet new baby, with heat blasting and drinking tea with mom.

Update sweet Corbin’s photo on Pinterest is a hit.

 

I specialize in minimalistic newborn portraiture and now booking the remaining of my spring newborn sessions. I offer a completely custom session to each client, whether it is a newborn session in my newly remodeled Vermont studio. Or an in home  newborn session in Vermont, New Hampshire, ( New England) and New York City.

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.
