luxury newborn photography for houston families

Behind the Lens


With over 9 years of experience, hundreds of babies, and a true heart to serve busy moms, you'll know you are in good hands.

While I may not be able to keep your baby small enough to hold in your arms forever, I can create the portraits that will allow you to relive those fleeting days for years to come. The baby who inspired my life as a photographer is now twelve years old, and it’s my experience as a mother that makes me a better photographer of mothers, newborns, babies, and families. 

My team and I pride ourselves on our ability to serve a mama's whole heart through your pregnancy and the earliest days of parenthood. In light-filled, classic settings using natural posing, we let the sweet, reflective, and simple moments lead each portrait session.

I love nothing more than spending my days slowly, carefully, with intention.  Read on for a little more about me and the studio.

about us

The studio. Soft, serene, and beautiful. I feel at home here, and I know you will too.

Happy Place

These kids. As they grow, all I want to do is slow down time and keep them little for a while longer.



After spending the first half of my adult life teaching and working in culinary arts, the kitchen is still where I unwind.



Peanut butter cup ice cream. Listening to true crime podcasts. Bubble baths just about every night.

guilty pleasure


Traveling to Nepal (alone!) for 3 weeks to explore and volunteer in areas throughout Kathmandu and the foothills of the Himalayas. 

Biggest adventure



Helping busy moms get their memories on the wall where she can see and enjoy them everyday.

about you

Does this sound like you? Inquire with us.

Everyone tells you to enjoy this time, but between planning for a new baby and chasing a toddler, you are worried these sweet moments are slipping by.

You imagine having light-filled, timeless portraits of your family in your home, but figuring out how to make it happen is daunting. You want someone to come alongside you, take care of all the details, and help make sure this isn't just another stressful session where you only wind up with more digital files and no idea what to do with them.
