Welcome to Myrtle Beach's


baby portrait studio

Life is an adventure and no year is faster than the first.

“A happy baby has shining eyes. It walks open-hearted into the world and spreads magic.” - Sigrid Leo 

Your little one is going to grow and change so much in their first year! One day you're coming home from the hospital and the next you're looking at a walking, talking, energetic little person standing where your newborn once laid. 

From sitting to standing, from tummy time to crawling... let's celebrate all of those big milestones! Don't let these moments pass you by. 

"An absolute joy to work with and has a great eye for posing! That fact that she’s a baby whisper doesn’t hurt either!!

She's very accommodating and patient

which makes for a stress free shoot. I’d give her more stars if I could!"

The snuggles, the belly laughs, the wonder in their eyes as they explore the world and learn new things every single day. It's incredible to watch your little one grow so much in their first year.


Your little one is graduating from baby to toddler and that is something to celebrate! So... let them eat cake! And after they can even splash around in my baby tub. Smash and splash!

Cake Smash

Displaying your photos

My goal is to create more than just photos for you… it’s to create art. To take this precious time of your life and document it in a beautiful, sometimes whimsical way that you can display as finished pieces of art in your home. My job as your photographer isn’t truly done until your images have been printed and displayed. Don’t just let these gorgeous photos sit on your hard drive!

I hope to provide you with beautiful, tangible pieces from your session that you and your family can enjoy for generations. 

Frequently Asked Questions

• When are the best ages for photos during baby's first year?
The biggest milestones are at 6 and 12 months. Around 6 months baby will be sitting up unassisted, which is my favorite milestone! We may even see those first few bottom teeth popping through. The next big one is baby's first birthday... full of crawling, giggling and sometimes even running! 

• Do you provide props and backdrops? 
Yes! I have a large selection or props & backdrops, as well as hats, headbands and other items to customize my sessions. (I'm a bit of a prop hoarder.) You are also welcome to bring in something special from home that you'd like to try and incorporate into your session. We'll work together before the session to plan your themes and colors and make sure that any ideas you have are safe and realistic images for us to capture. 

• How many outfits should I bring for baby?
I suggest 2-3 outfits for milestone sessions. If we will be doing a cake smash then I recommend 2 regular outfits and a cake smash outfit. 

• Can we include a sibling or family photo in our milestone session?
Sure! The family and/or sibling pose is available as an add-on to your milestone collection. For families I can only accommodate a close up portrait, but most of my backdrops do have enough space to allow for a full body pose with sibling. These poses are done first (in studio only) and then we focus on baby for the remainder of the session. 

• When will we receive our photos?
I always post sneak peeks on social media same day and all galleries are delivered in two weeks. That's right... your fully edited gallery will be ready to you to view, share and download in just two weeks!

• This sounds amazing, how do I book?
Scroll down to the contact form and send me a message! I'll send you back my full pricing guide to review. All I need to secure your place on my calendar is a signed contract and retainer payment. I can't wait to see what we'll create together!
