Welcome to my studio space! When I first opened my business I converted our tiny but beautiful and bright office into a small studio in my Burlington home. For the first year this space worked wonderfully. But my business grew (!!) and now I do a lot of maternity and older babies in studio. I expanded my studio to a larger room with a parent lounge, change table and the ability to have parent set-ups on one wall and my newborn beanbag on another for easier transition. This room in my home has better functionality but maintains the warm bright, welcoming environment of my first space. I’m always adding teeny teeny details here and there – like more of my artwork up on the walls and building an extensive studio wardrobe for maternity and babies up to one year of age 🙂 I’m very passionate and caring about how I capture your memories and every time I set up for a session I do it with a smile on my face.
A client favourite is to come and shop my studio wardrobe. It is packed with the perfect simple and timeless pieces. I have wardrobe items for women to wear during their maternity session and for new moms to wear at their studio newborn’s session if they choose. They are neutral in colour – lots of whites and creams and textures such as lace that photograph beautifully. My goal is to both provide wardrobe advice on what to bring and to have studio items for all sizes. If you are wondering if I have the right piece for you just drop me a message or set up a time to stop by and try some things on.
I also have many wardrobe items for use at my Pure Baby sessions from 3 month to 12 month in size. Often we will combine items that parents bring along (and I give you tips on what works best!) and studio pieces for simple and classic portraits that keep the focus on your sweet baby rather than the outfit he or she is wearing.
The studio is stocked with newborn wraps, hats, headbands and lots of pretty fabrics and simple, elegant props. I am constantly adding to my collection.
This is a warm, welcoming environment where I want families to come and relax. Sit in the cozy parent lounge, watch closely as I take your baby’s first professional images, feed your baby, catch up on your Netflix shows or even take a nap!
Capturing images of newborns, babies and bellies in this room is a dream come true for me. I can’t wait for you to visit for your next portrait session. Take a peek at my Burlington studio!
