For all the things my hands

have held, the best by far is you.

Andrew McMahon

I just love photographing newborn babies. They are so precious and it’s such a momentous occasion in a family whether it’s the first baby or the fourth. Each baby has their own personality and special details and I try to capture that uniqueness in every session. Babies change so quickly. Within a few short weeks after birth your little one won’t be as tiny in your arms and their squishy newborn details will begin to change.


My style is natural and artistic. I strive to create photographs that are unique, warm and classic. I like minimalism and simplicity so that your baby is the focus of the image. Welcoming a new baby is a significant time and I am honoured to capture this miraculous and special time for you.
