welcome to my site!

I am a newborn, child, family and senior photographer specializing in fine art and lifestyle photography based in Dedham, Massachusetts and I love to use natural light, whenever possible, on my newborn, children, family and senior portraitures.

Having a baby can be the most important and memorable experience of your life. Whether it is the first child and the beginnings of a family or it is a welcome addition to your family, you will always cherish the precious moments with your baby. You want to be able to remember all the memories you can of your child’s baby stages. Baby Photography captures the adorable moments and intense emotions of this special time.

As your baby grows, these invaluable memories are captured as precious heirlooms with baby photography. To ensure that you will remember and experience these moments forever, be sure to invest in baby photography so that you can capture these rare precious moments.

A Baby photographer can provide you with quality prints of your baby. This means that no matter how much time passes, or how old your kids get, you will always have your baby photographed, a memory frozen in time to remind you of your kid’s truly innocent years. As a mom myself,  I know the many facets of a baby’s personality, and how to nurture them to really produce outstanding photographs to savor a lifetime.  This will make the experience most pleasant for you and your baby, and will most likely produce the best possible results as well.

An experienced and skilled baby photographer can capture the image and emotions of your baby. Babies grow up so fast, and before you know it, that baby is a teenager and then off to college. For this reason, it is important to capture the cherished memories of your baby’s childhood.

Your baby photography session is scheduled around 2 weeks - 10 months, generally lasts between one to two hours and will be held in the comfort of your home or selected locations around Dedham, MA.

My goal for each newborn photography session is to create a personalized experience for you and your baby that it is fun and meaningful.  Although the goal of working together is to create wonderful images, I also strive to make the process of getting there enjoyable and memorable. This is how it works!


Every session begins with an initial consultation so we can get to know each other. I love to learn more about you and your baby, your goals for the newborn photography session, and share ideas on how to incorporate the photographs into the nursery. I encourage clients to use this time for questions and to share their own vision.



In order to reserve your family photography session date in my calendar, a nonrefundable session fee of $250 (but transferable in case we need to reschedule) and a signed contract are required. I will work with your schedule to find a perfect day and time for the session.



A newborn photography session will approximately last 1 to 3 hours long and include a pre-session consultation, photo session, ordering session and a private online gallery for viewing and ordering.



I will post a brief sneak peek on my facebook page a few days after, highlighting a few photos from your session!  The photos have been taken, individually retouched with great love and care, and now it is time for you to see the end result of all our hard work and planning! One of my client's favorite part of the entire photo session is getting to see their beautiful images projected in the comfort of their own home. I will bring over all the viewing equipment and go through each image with you individually.

At this point in time, you will have the opportunity to choose the photographs you would like to have as prints, canvas or a variety of other products I offer. I will bring a pricing guide and make recommendations for photo products I think would enhance the baby's nursery and your home decoration. This is your time to ask questions, place orders and get excited about your images!


Limited number of session accepted each month. Please reserve your session early to ensure availability.
