Why I Love Maternity and Newborn Photography

May 1, 2020

Over the years, I’ve photographed several genres: weddings, glamour, fashion and products but capturing maternity and newborn photography is truly what makes my heart sing! Although I may continue to experiment with new types of photography, I will always return to mamas and their little ones.

To help women, especially pregnant and new moms, embrace the changes their bodies go through and the mind shift that comes with that, to help them see their beauty and inspire confidence, words cannot adequately express how much I love that part. I’ve witnessed women walk into a session with very little confidence and self-assurance, but leave with a newfound purpose. To watch a woman bloom into who she really is in front of the camera is powerful, like a magical transformation.

I want my work to help women redefine how they view their bodies during and after pregnancy… and highlight how incredibly magnificent, powerful, strong and beautiful they are. I’m not interested in creating photographs that will live only on a holiday card or a social media post – I want to create a piece of family art that will be cherished for generation after generation… that has meaning, substance and purpose.
