My favorite baby resources

I’ve been a newborn photographer for over a decade. During this time, I’ve had hundreds of conversations with new parents about what was helpful during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I’ve gathered all these helpful resources to help you with this tricky time.

How to take better family photos

I think everyone wants to know how to take better family photos. Hiring a professional photographer to document a new baby in their first few days of life is an investment that is well worth the time and money. You’ll have professional quality images and prints to cherish for the rest of your life, freezing that moment in time when they are brand new and fresh, their tiny toes and fingers, their perfect skin and baby hair, and their incredible tininess in your hands.

What I wish I knew before becoming a Mom

Becoming a Mom is so wonderful yet completely overwhelming at the same time. Working with babies for years made me think that it would be so easy! I was so much more worried about birth than what would happen afterwards, and didn’t really understand how much having a baby would rock our world. Here are some tips on what helped me during this time, and what I wish I knew before becoming a mom.
