I specialize in working with mothers who desire to preserve their most cherished relationships through tangible, gorgeous albums and high-quality images. I photograph families who, like me, value the beauty of simplicity that will create classic art. My maternity photography is feminine, timeless, and full of joy and beauty. My signature lifestyle photography with your children is an irreplaceable part of my work. I am deeply moved when documenting the undeniable heart connection that is found between two engaged individuals, and I offer only the most exquisite albums, matted prints, and high-quality products to my clients.
Photographing new mothers & fathers with their newborn children is one of my greatest honors, as I get to watch them hold their entire world in their hands. I photograph Abilene families welcoming little ones into their home in a style that is both intimate and deeply moving. My newborn portrait work is focused solely on the connection between parent and child, and I request that babies are never placed in anything but in the arms of their mother and father. As a professional newborn photographer, my priority will always be the mother and baby’s safety first, and then creating timeless art.
I have the ability to determine how to direct an outdoor photoshoot to get the most out of the available natural light. I also employ a variety of lighting options during your sessions; whether it be a natural-lighted photojournalism session of motherhood, or an evening maternity session at sunset which transitions indoors to soft studio lighting. Private studio sessions are held in Downtown Abilene, Texas. Flash photography is used discretely, and only when necessary.
There is an influx of new photographers in an already saturated market, but what sets a professional photographer apart from the crowd is their ability to consistently and confidently capture every shot. What many do not realize about professional photography is how crucial it is to have a combination of experience, practice newborn and child safety during sessions, possess quality studio lighting and editing equipment, as well as have multiple camera systems and backup gear.
Every single assignment is unique, and I envision creating keepsake images that are passed down through multiple generations. Creating those images require on-going education, a working knowledge of shutter speed, aperture, & ISO, discovering the cleanest edits in Photoshop, and other photo editing software. Professional photographers hold themselves to high ethical & material standards. I own multiple professional dSLR camera equipment setups to capture your moments even if one camera system fails. Your family deserves a professional portrait photographer who will take the time to get to know you, deliver and explain your contract, and be certain that you are fully informed prior to your session.
I consider Abilene my satellite location, but I am available for travel and destination weddings, destination portraits, or events all over Texas (often to Fort Worth, Southlake, Dallas, and San Antonio) as well as Washington, DC. My studio is located in downtown Abilene.
Your experience with me goes beyond great lighting, amazing images, and an investment you won’t regret. It’s important to find someone that you trust to deliver the finest images between you and your loved ones. Family celebrations, newborns, and weddings are priceless and you deserve the best professional wedding, newborn, and family portrait photographer.
