Motherhood photography typically focuses on capturing the various stages and emotions of motherhood, including pregnancy, newborns, infants, toddlers, and beyond. These photoshoots often emphasize the bond between mother and child, as well as the unique moments and milestones that occur during the journey of motherhood. The aim is to create timeless images that celebrate the beauty, love, and joy of motherhood, preserving these precious memories for years to come.

Birth photography is about telling a story. The anticipation of those hours before your baby is born. It's about documenting that exact moment you meet your baby for the first time, you hold them in your arms, and hear their first cry. Want to find out more? Click the link below!


This experience is meant to celebrate your little one's first year of life. You will have your choice of how you want their first birthday to be documented between portraits, a cake smash, a milk bath, or a combination of two.


Milestone sessions give you the chance to document your little one through all of their special stages including sitting, standing, and becoming mobile. Milestone sessions usually occur around 6, 9, and 18 months.


My approach to newborn sessions is a mixture of lifestyle and lightly posed imagery. The newborn session takes place in the comfort of your own home. I do provide props, wraps, and accessories so no need to prepare anything extra unless you want to.
