I first met Mary & Brinton about 2 years ago when they were newly engaged and planning their wedding. I remember Mary’s inviting smile and Brinton’s charm. We were soon chatting like old friends sharing excitement for the upcoming wedding. The rest is history. You can see their engagement photos here and wedding photos here.

You can only imagine how excited I was when Mary contacted me about setting up both a maternity and newborn session. I am truly honored to share these amazing moments in peoples lives. And truly thankful for all of the friends I make a long the way.

The maternity session didn’t end up happening due to doctor ordered bed rest and crazy work schedules at the hospital (Mary and Brinton are both ER physicians). But we both knew the newborn session was a MUST. I just wanted to cuddle little Emma the whole time.


Those are definitely Gerber lips.

The sweet little headband was Mary’s garter.

I love the new parent smile.

Daddy’s and their baby girls warm my heart. Every little girl needs a picture like this.

Every child deserves a picture with their momma like this.

There is something about this image that I can’t stop looking at. The simpleness, Brinton’s smile in the background, the day to day event of changing baby’s clothes….it’s everyday life. And those are the moments that matter most.


Three generations.

Cuddles with her uncle.

Babies never seem to know what to do with those pesky arms in the way. I think of a bunny hopping when I see this.

Toes! nibble, nibble.



Wait a minute…is Emma trying to tell me something? hahahaha. I love you too Emma.


Love you three! Thanks for the honor of allowing me to capture your life’s precious memories.
