That extra magic
a DIVINE calling…
A photograph is just a photograph unless it contains the humanity of the moment.
When it does, it becomes something more. The photograph takes on a life of its own. More than just a window in time, it becomes a time machine. Transporting you back to that very moment when you felt the most in love, back to your happiest memories. But more than just a faint memory, they become alive. Creating inside of you that burning passion you once felt long ago.
I am a wife & mother
I have a supportive husband and four precious kiddos. And just like you, I adore my family. I want to treasure every single moment. Motherhood is my calling and my children are my whole world.
But what will I wear?
We offer a large selection of Designer gowns and newborn outfits for your convenience
Our clients love coming in for their fittings. Ahead of your session an appointment will be made to come and try on any or all of our gowns. I want you to be in LOVE with what you are wearing for your session and our collection of superior quality gowns will help you do just that!
These are a few of our available gowns. Many of the gowns seen on our site are available as a complimentary service. However some of our clients purchase their own gowns so not every gown on our site is available.
Gown Buy Back Program
We know that you may not wear the gown you have purchased again in the future. That is why we offer studio credit in exchange for certain gowns available in up to the amount that you paid for your dress. Then the studio would add the gown to our studio closet for future clients to use. Not all gowns are eligible for the program. Studio reserves the right to refuse trade.
We are delighted to offer professional heirloom quality art for your home.

What to expect
We prefer to create sets that ensure that the individual in the portrait can truly shine. We do not do super busy, distracting sets. Besides using the what is available to us whether we are in the studio or in your home, we do provide classic and simple brown, black, grey, and white studio backdrops. Our priority is to provide you with portraits like those seen here on my site.
What to Wear
Our Studio Provides a Luxury collection of Gowns for Maternity, Women and Little Girls as well as a collection of props and outfits for newborns and sitters.
We suggest that all of your family members bring an outfit that matches the theme that we decide based on the backdrops we plan to use. We often photograph everyone in this outfit and then try gowns and flower crowns.
Hair and Makeup
We do not provide professional hair and makeup but highly recommend you work with one to help you create a look that makes you feel gorgeous.
You are welcome to bring items that are special to you that you would like to use during your session. I will do my best to incorporate these items. Please let me know if you plan to do this ahead of time.
You are welcome to use these. However, there is no need to wear shoes or socks in your portraits. Please come with clean feet. I feel bare feet, even when wearing fancy clothes, adds an important element of intimacy.
