When you have a newborn in the house, your entire home can get turned upside down. Sometimes it can take awhile to get into a new routine of things with your new baby. With the added stress that comes with the holiday season, you can start to feel like you’re just barely getting by. If you have a newborn in tow this holiday season, I’m going to share with you my secrets to surviving, and dare I say thriving, during the holidays with a new baby. Avoid peak travel times whenever possible Holiday travel is an inevitable part of the holiday season. Whether you are heading out of town to visit family or just making a trip to the store, you will want to avoid peak travel times. Peak travel times might be manageable during the rest of the year, but during the holiday season, you can expect MUCH heavier crowds, which are not ideal for moms with newborns onboard. Instead, look for off-peak days and travel times to avoid traffic. Simplify the holiday with your newborn You can’t do it all, and that’s the harsh truth. If you’re not a Pinterest mom, don’t choose now to start. You can’t […]

Framed Portraits

Your family portraits As a full-service photographer, there’s not much I love more than a family enjoying their portraits up on the walls of their home. I know how valuable it is for those to be something you and your children see day in and day out. Especially as they grow and change before your eyes. Each change is incremental, but before you know it, they won’t be the same as they were during your portrait session. If you walked into my house, you would certainly see a mess… but if you took a moment to look past that, you would see what truly matters to me. Of course, the mess comprised of children’s toys and books is a piece of that puzzle, but the images up on the walls and shelves are another. I want that for my clients too. No, no, not the mess. I want my clients to walk into their living room every day and see the people they love most up on the wall. I want that for you. While everybody has different preferred mediums, framed portraits are a great way to enjoy your images as the artwork they are. I pride myself on offering […]

I absolutely love newborn photography because it allows me to capture a moment in time that goes by so fast. It’s amazing how much they change in the early days. Little Persephone was born a bit early, but by the time I took her portraits at only 2 weeks old, you would hardly tell by looking at her. She was a such a cutie, and she slept beautifully during her newborn portrait session. I was only able to photograph so many different “themes” with Persephone because she was such a perfect baby. I got all of the photos that I wanted to, and even fit in some simple “Christmas” themed photos, which was great because I was dying to use my Christmas ornament props! That’s right, I used ornaments as props. I’m not sure where the bear came from, but the green mug was from Target. (You can really find everything at Target.) Next year I’ll have to remember to scour the Christmas ornaments for other cute finds. At the end of the session, we did a few different sibling and family shots. Big sister was so excited to take part, and was such a great listener! I really love […]
