The heart of my photography, in less than 15 images.

So….. I am working on a business project, and it requires a lot of thought and introspection. I was asked to choose the 10-15 images that best express the heart behind my work… the images that are the most “me”. If you know me, you know how agonizing it is for me to eliminate my […]


This summer I witnessed a miracle…

I don’t even know what to write, except that this summer, I witnessed a miracle.  I had the great privilege to be involved in the life of a family going through the toughest thing they have ever faced: finding out that one of the twins they were carrying had a life-threatening condition, giving birth to […]


One Saturday Morning- Cincinnati Family Lifestyle Photography

Families… each one has a unique story.  Unique traditions.  Shared memories, love, connection with each other.  Capturing the unique story of each family I photograph is my passion as a photographer, and I am always looking for ways to better tell a story through my family lifestyle photography sessions.  This is a new kind of session […]


the first snow!!!

There is nothing like the first snow of the year! Around Cincinnati, we don’t usually see snow until after Christmas, and never in November that I can remember! So, to have a full-on, covered-in-four-inches Snow Day on November 17 was a magical surprise! Even though I will confess I don’t like cold, I want my […]

So, holding our breath and praying that the weather […]


Meet Baby Whitaker!

Oh, this sweet little guy… I could snuggle him forever!  As a newborn photographer, I spend lots of time with sweet, soft newborns, but this little one is uniquely special to me… he is my nephew!


happy mother’s day!

There are many incredibly wonderful things about being a birth photographer, newborn photographer, family photographer and even occasionally a wedding photographer.  But of everything, my very favorite thing, the reason for my passion in my business, is witnessing and capturing the amazing, deep bonds of love that families share.  Nowhere do I see it more […]


You have a classic, timeless style and want to capture the sweet little features of your newborn baby and the joy of welcoming baby into the world without trendy props or awkward poses to distract from the simple beauty and emotion of this special time. I love to capture newborns the way just the way they naturally like to lay, curled up and cozy. I create stunning, up close, detailed images of baby’s precious little features like his/her lips, toes, hands, and eyelashes (I am in love with baby eyelashes!) If you love the images you see in the galleries, I’d love to talk with you!

My sessions are super flexible to meet baby’s needs.  You want a warm, friendly, knowledgeable Cincinnati newborn photographer who prioritizes baby’s safety and is supportive and friendly, in addition to making great images.

You are looking to maximize your enjoyment of and investment in your images. While every session collection includes digital images, I am a fervent believer in the value of a printed image.

I design beautiful wall displays for my clients, so that you can enjoy your beautiful images on the walls of your home every day. I also create stunning, heirloom quality albums for you to pass on to your baby and share with future generations. My services extend to every photography need you may have as a new parent. I provide birth photography for new parents who want to capture the miracle and emotion of bringing their baby into the world, and I also offer a first year milestones plan complete with its own product line exclusively for my newborn clients.  Whether you are expecting a baby and looking for a Cincinnati newborn photographer, or just looking around at options for Cincinnati newborn photography, I invite you to get to know me, check out the galleries to see my work, or find out more about newborn sessions.
