Before anything else, I’m a mother, wife, daughter and sister. My family means the world to me. My kids are my life. I have three adorable, crazy, awesome children (who are 7 and under) and they are my inspiration (and also bring me to the brink of insanity! Haha!) My youngest was born in May of 2014, so I’m right there with you – reliving that amazing, cuddly baby toddler time all over again.

My background is in art and design – I have a bachelor’s degree in Advertising where I specialized in Graphic Design. I worked for 10 years as a graphic artist and retoucher before I had my first child. It was then when I really fell in love with photographing professionally. I’ve always had a love affair with my camera, but it wasn’t until I had children of my own that it really blossomed and in 2011 I was inspired to branch off into photographing newborns and families professionally. I am extremely passionate about what I do – I feel like this is truly my dream job! Not only do I still get to continue challenge myself artistically and creatively, but I also incorporate my design background when creating client albums or wall displays, and I get to meet and interact with new moms and cuddle with little ones. It’s really the best mix of all of the things I love most.

My photographic style is clean, classic and elegant and I like to capture a family’s natural beauty with an organic, timeless feel. My style has been described as light and airy and I am obsessed with neutrals and pastels! I believe neutrals are so elegant and are perfect for maternity and newborn portraits. I love that soft, dreamy glow that whites and pastels reflect. It makes for more delicate imagery and it really makes the subject of the portrait stand out. Additionally, it can be incorporated into any room decor, adding to the flexibility of moving wall portraits from room to room in your home.

I love getting to know new parents and hearing their journeys through pregnancy and the excitement of their birth stories. I enjoy being around children and I love using games to engage them and to draw out their personalities so we can capture authentic expressions. I shoot both natural and studio light, I shoot with top of the line photographic equipment and I incorporate the best editing software to make sure all my images are magazine quality.

I’m fascinated by art, history, architecture, archeology, genealogy and anything that documents a personal story. I love heirloom items like old family photo albums, old photographs, paintings, baby books and family trees. I’m intrigued seeing where people come from and how they lived. I love documenting people today so that one day they can be passed down to the next generation. I love the idea of being a family historian. I’ve collected my own family’s history, not just through photography, but through other artistic ways. I have published a book with all of my grandmother’s best family recipes, I have researched and assembled my family tree (where I documented 174 family members and was able to trace it back all the way to my great-great-great grandparents!), created my family’s growth charts, made cute handprint ornaments, and even reupholstered a chair I inherited from grandmother. I love having pieces of my own history in my home and that my own story is on display, and I love creating that for others. I strive to create heirloom images that you are proud to display in your home and that they become cherished images of the beginning of your baby’s life and of your new family. I am passionate about documenting those first days and years of new life so you can display them as part of your story.

As an artist, I try to use my talents to capture you and and your personality. I use my camera to tell a story and document that love you feel when you’re holding your new baby or snuggling with your kids. I use my camera as my paintbrush to create photographic art pieces you can hang and display in your home – images that will become family heirlooms and that you and your children will pass on for generations.

If you’re looking for a creative photographer in South Florida to photograph you as you expect your little bundle, or to document your little one’s first days, first months or first years, give me a call and we can set up a complimentary consultation at my studio and we can chat over coffee about the images you want to create. It would be an honor to capture those memories for you.
