I am a portrait photographer in West Des Moines, Iowa. Specializing in newborn, child & family photography. This has been my passion for the past 5 years! My heart is absolutely held in newborn photography. Newborn safety is my biggest priority during a session. I have completed hours & hours worth of training on how to safely & properly pose newborns. I know first hand just how quickly your precious baby grows & you will never regret capturing them in those fleeting newborn days!
The biggest honor for me is to continue to watch your child & family grow by capturing amazing memories for you each milestone & year!! I put my heart into each session, edit & gallery and your trust and business means the world to me!
My goal is to capture your child and family's real personality in a fun and unique way. I always capture posed portraits but my goal is for the session to be full of whatever makes your family- you!! Whether its snuggles, kisses, candid play- anything to make your child and family comfortable so I can capture amazing memories for you.
I have a 1500 sq ft. studio space in Valley Junction in West Des Moines with 4 neutral themed shooting spaces specifically designed for newborns, children & small families. You'll have exclusive access to my prop, milestone wardrobe & accessories collection during your session.
Each session package includes edited images that you will download from your private online gallery. I want my clients to be able to print and share their images as they please- they are yours :)
Mpix.com is highly recommended for printing. A la Carte prints are also available to conveniently order directly through your gallery from my professional lab. I am also available for ordering appointments at the studio, free of charge, to design albums, wall collections or other keepsake products.
Your gallery will be available for you to directly download approximately 3 weeks from your session date.
Outdoor sessions are held in the Des Moines, Ankeny & surrounding metro areas. I shoot outdoors in the evening, typically 2 hours before sunset.
