Creating compelling fashion photography concepts for my clients is always a thrill. I love the challenge of cooking up something unique that suits current marketplace trends while also remaining on brand for my client.

This is what I believe newborn photography should be all about, capturing the realness of these early moments together in a sweet, simple and stylish way that makes the heart burst. (more…)
