Many mama’s are reluctant to put themselves in front of a camera. They don’t feel comfortable with their growing bellies and often think they aren’t beautiful enough to show off their pregnant body. I aim to make these moms feel their best by photographing them in a natural, photojournalistic manner. My promise is that each and every mama will leave their session feeling the most beautiful they have ever felt!
Prior to your scheduled session, you are welcome to drop my studio to try on gowns and pick 2-3 you would like to wear during your session.
West Des Moines, IA - Fine Art Newborn Photography Studio
My approach to newborn photography is simple, organic and timeless. I believe that the focus should be on the baby rather than a bunch of props. I like to use a pop of color but also love the classic and clean look of neutrals. When you step into my studio for your session, my hope is that you will feel comfortable enough to make yourself at home. I provide everything needed for the session, your only responsibility is to bring your beautiful baby and some extra milk and then sit back and relax, resting assured your baby is in great hands!
Des Moines, IA and Surrounding Hospitals - Fresh 48
With a natural approach to capturing your new little bundles first couple of days of life, I come to you at the hospital within 48 hours after the birth of your baby to photograph their fresh new details that fade so quickly. These session are done with natural light and edited for a photojournalistic feel. Parents and siblings are welcome to participate but the main focus will be on baby.
From 3 months old to 1 year, there are so many exciting new things happening with your baby. From rolling back to tummy to sitting unassisted to walking on their own, these are the moments you want to remember forever!
Milestone sessions are fully customized by me and can take place either in studio or outdoors.
Cake smash sessions are kept simple. I prefer to keep the focus on your little one so minimal props will be used. As long as your kiddo has no known allergies, the cake will be provided by me.
