Providing you a Safe Toddler photography experience!

As a Professional Photographer and pediatric RN, I know how adventurous your little explorer is . That is why your toddler's safety happiness is my top priority. I often incorporate play, silliness, and age appropriate activities for the during your session to help your toddler stay relaxed and have a good time.

Every wrap, prop, and blanket is sanitized between each session. I only wrap your toddler with soft plush fabrics to protect their delicate skin and to keep them cozy. My private studio environment is also designed with your baby in mind. I limit distracting noises, play white noise, and also have endless places for parents to sit and relax. 

I truly cannot wait to become your lifelong family photographer!

No two children are alike and as such, no two sessions are the same. Each milestone I photograph, is as unique as your little one. I truly want to mesh well with your family! I want the experience to be calm, enjoyable and stress free, as your overall mood will manifest in your final images.  It is never too early to book! Most families plan to book 3-6+ months in advanced.
