Their house literally looks and feels like Chip and Joanna Gaines have been there — except even better because the Nice family build and decorated it themselves!

at home maternity photo session

I have been playing around with this idea that maternity photo sessions can be something different — they can be as relaxed, as documentary-style, and as much of a reflection of real life as any other session I shoot.

Why not capture the real stuff of what life looks like for your little one and your family? It’s so priceless to have that milestone documented because even 1 […]

You just get to be you, and I capture it and make sure it looks as magical as it secretly is. So many folks are intimidated by this idea, or wonder […]

This is new-to-the-world Baby Adalyn, her mom and dad, and some beautiful window light. We did a quiet at-home session in the Neal’s master bedroom and their guest room.
