My love of photography was apparent as a small child. I used to take my parents’ cameras, shoot my way through the film, then ask that they develop it for me, which they always graciously did. In high school, I signed up for my first black and white photography class, converted our laundry room into a darkroom, and never looked back. Photography became an extension of who I am.
I received a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Texas at Dallas while also working as a photographer for UTD's student paper. After I graduated, I went on to take several specialized photography classes from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Since then, I have also been fortunate enough to mentor under several incredibly talented photographers.
My love of newborn photography was born in 2010, after I had my daughter. There is a pure and fleeting beauty to newborns that I am absolutely captivated by. Each newborn is unique in their own way - no two sessions are the same. While newborn photography is certainly challenging, it is one of the most beautiful and rewarding art forms in which I have ever worked.
I strongly believe that memories are sealed through photographs. Through my work, I hope your own memories of your little ones remain as vivid and beautiful as the day they were born.
In addition to The Newborn Lens, I also freelance for Bethesda Magazine and Arlington Magazine.
