Here are a few snaps of our girl at 5 weeks old. I’ve always wanted to do this kind of newborn photography, but never really had babies to “practice” with. Most moms ask for babies in baskets, “pretty shots,” and everything posed. I really wanted to do something different to share another way! I like to see the real details, to remember. One day these clothes won’t fit, she won’t be this tiny, and I may not still have these blankets. I want to be able to picture each moment as it actually was. I hope this helps some other moms see that documentary photography can be a really special way to photograph babies.

A Day in the Life

featured local stories, Personal

I realized that I don’t often post about my personal life. Having our daughter recently changed my views on so much. Its important for me to let you see behind the scenes, so to speak. To better understand me, my life, what I like, and why. So much of life inspires, and most of what inspires me comes from the everyday. I love to watch the way light washes over a room, or the small details of an object overlooked. I went to work with my hubby at Cheapside, his cafe downtown and snapped  a few shots. We talk about Cheapside a lot at home and I love to listen to his ideas about design, how people enjoy a space, and what excites him about creating a place for people to come and hang out-to get inspired.

Fall Trip : NYC + Rhode Island

Destination, Personal

At 9 months pregnant my husband and I decided to pack up and head to NYC for a photo workshop that I wanted to attend to learn from some of my faves. This was such an amazing get away to give us time to reconnect before the baby and to help me get inspired for this coming season. I couldn’t have planned for the spark that was ignited in me. Check out some of our snaps from Rhode Island, the city, and hanging with friends.
