In 2011 I graduated from photography school without much idea of what I was going to do with photography. Nature photography is what made me pick up a camera in the first place, but the truth is, I’m a homebody. I’m not the type of person to leave home for long periods of time and photograph the world’s endangered animals. And so I began photographing the things around my home. Insects in my garden. Nature trails. Local wildlife. Inevitably, I also began to photograph friends’ kids and babies. And to my surprise, I started to love photographing babies. I started imagining a career as a newborn photographer.
Then life hit and life hit hard. I started to struggle with infertility and then experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage. During that time I stopped doing photography all together. But as I healed, I started to pick up my camera again and my aspiration to become a newborn photographer came back stronger than ever.
Currently, I’m preparing to welcome twin boys into the world and am on maternity leave from client photography. Until I start doing client work again, I plan on using this site to write about and post photos from my own personal journey.
