soft, feminine images of motherhood

Auburn AL Maternity Photographer

Motherhood is a million little moments that God weaves together with grace, redemption, laughter, tears, and most of all, love.

 -Lysa Terkeurst

I love working with women through all stages of motherhood.

From those peaceful, glowing pregnancy days to the bleary-eyed, sleepless nights of new parenthood - I want to be there for it all. 

We might be a good fit if: 

✓ you love ethereal images with a timeless feel
✓ you value simplicity in images
✓ you love a soft tones and a neutral aesthetic
✓ you want your family beautifully and cohesively styled
✓you want someone to quietly come into your home and capture the intimate connection between you, your partner, and your new little one
✓ you want to finally get your photos OFF your device and onto your walls

thoughtful, connection driven images of motherhood

I've created a relaxed, elevated maternity session experience for expecting mamas - so you can enjoy those little kicks while I capture your glowing beauty. 

If you wish, you can also choose for me to join your family after your little one arrives for an in-home newborn session. I will spend time with your family, within your home, for intimate, emotion-filled images with your precious baby in your arms. 

Maternity and newborn session clients have access to my carefully curated client closet with flattering maternity-friendly and postpartum dresses in a range of sizes. 

I will walk you through each step of the way to make sure your session is stress-free and you receive dreamy photos that make even the most ordinary moments of your session feel special. 

After your gallery is delivered, I will make framed art and album recommendations to make sure your beautiful images don't end up living on a hard drive.
