From your growing belly to monthly and yearly milestones, there are so many moments to document as your baby grows. My newborn and maternity clients get access to a closet full of flattering, beautiful dresses and my natural-light-filled in-home studio, plus flexible planning for newborn photo sessions, since babies arrive on their own timelines! It's everything new parents need to create beautiful memories of your newest addition without any tears (from you).

A stress-free approach to capturing your baby's first year 

Newborn sessions can be done in your home, or if you want to avoid cleaning, you are welcome to come to my in-home studio in Fresno. 

Maternity sessions can be done on location (I've got some favorites) or in your own home.


I recommend scheduling maternity photo sessions around the 32-34 week mark. That's the sweet spot for getting great pictures of your beautiful bump and avoiding third trimester discomforts.

Newborn photo sessions are best scheduled between 4 and 14 days postpartum. This gives you a chance to get acquainted with your new baby for a bit while also taking advantage of that sleepy newborn stage before they 'wake up' around 3-4 weeks.

I know you want to see yourself as beautifully pregnant as you feel (or want to feel) and remember every detail of your little one...

Let me help you freeze this happy moment in time.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Yes! If you are really concerned, you are welcome to use my small lifestyle studio in my home for a neutral and easy experience. But I encourage you to look at your home a little differently. Do you have decent natural light? Do you have a cozy bed you can clear the laundry off of for a couple hours? Do you have open floor space near a sliding door or window? If yes, then I can probably make your space work and document your newborn in a way that feels real.

Q: I don't have an Instagram home. Can you really get nice newborn images in my space?

A: I tend to book newborns for the Saturday after your due date and then make adjustments depending on when baby actually arrives. If your partner will be home on leave, a mid-week session is always an option as well.

Q: Do you have weekend availability?
