As a prior NICU nurse, newborns will always hold a special place in my heart. Since 2012, I have worked with newborns in some capacity, some born as young as 22 weeks. I remember caring for 11 year olds as a school nurse and being able to see wisps of baby in them, whether it be from their sweet tears from a fall or simply needing a hug. I always looked for the "baby" because that's what motivated me--knowing that once they were sweet babies not too long ago. My background in nursing equips me with extensive knowledge of newborn health and safety protocols. I understand how to handle newborns safely during photo sessions, ensuring their well-being is a top priority. Newborn photography sessions can be unpredictable, requiring patience and flexibility to work with newborns who may need feeding, diaper changes, or comforting during the shoot. My experience as a nurse means I'm accustomed to adapting to changing situations and remaining calm under pressure.
The newborn stage is such a fleeting time that I dearly love, and that's why I've returned to newborns once again. The days are long, but the years are short, right?! Through newborn photography I help to immortalize the sweet newborn stage through a timeless fine art style.
I currently wear a brand new mask during all newborn and maternity sessions. I sanitize all equipment before and after sessions. Every prop that is touched or worn during a photoshoot is sanitized. All textiles are washed or handwashed in between sessions, including the very couch cover you sit on. Props, backdrops, knits, hairbands, and wardrobe are all from high end luxury brands void of harsh chemicals and detergents. All floors are sanitized and cleaned before and after sessions.
In addition to being the mother of four young children, I also am a licensed Registered Nurse with both NICU and pediatric experience. I have also taken several newborn workshops geared towards baby safety.
I currently am triple vaccinated against covid and have received all other vaccines currently available including the flu, Tdap, MMR, etc.
Studio policy requires that all shoes remain in the foyer. Please feel free to wear socks or shoe covers (provided.) Please no smoking.
