Let me tell you a little about myself. I have always loved photography. I remember going on a family trip to Hawaii and I got my very own 100 mm camera, extremely cheap and really lame, but I didn't care. I was just so excited to take my own pictures. It wasn't until I had my own children that I truly became passionate about photography and began studying. Up to this point I am all self-taught. A lot of trial and error and a lot of research! Throughout all my practice and study I have found that newborn photography is what truly excites me.
Oh, how I love newborn babies! There is nothing more divine than holding such beautiful little miracles. If I could, I would have a million myself... But since I can't I will treasure yours while I have them in my studio. I hope you don't mind if I steal a little snuggle in the middle of our session.
The best part of being a newborn photographer is preserving some of the most special moments in a family's life. They are only this little for a few days and then all you are left with is vague (since you are pretty delusional from lack of sleep) memories of it all. I strongly believe these are the pictures you will look back on most often throughout your child's life. I understand how difficult it is to get out of the house so soon after your baby is born, and that it is hard to add another expense in after all the doctor bills and trips to Babies R Us. But I promise, you will never regret the sacrifice you made to capture these precious moments of your child life.
I'm off my soap box. Now back to me. :0) When I am not behind the camera you will find me chasing after my three wild monsters...... I mean boys. Lets just say they keep me on my toes. I'm sure you will come across a million pictures of them here and on my blog.
There is no way I could follow my dream of being a photographer without the help and support of my amazing husband Tom. He is so inspiring and pushes me along when I need the help on the business end of things. I am one lucky lady to have him in my life.
