A studio designed with you in mind.

As the Grand Strand's only boutique portrait studio specializing in maternity and baby's first year, I am proud to offer you a photography experience that you won't find anywhere else. 

Formerly located in The Market Common, I am now serving clients at my new & improved portrait studio in Murrells Inlet. Every detail of this space has been designed to accommodate you and your little one. 

Murrells Inlet Boutique Portrait Studio

804 Inlet Square Drive, Suite B
Murrells Inlet, SC 29576

located at:

Complimentary Wifi

If you need to get some work done or if you just want to veg out, drink coffee and scroll social media while I work with your newborn, you're welcome to hook up to my WiFi! 

Stay Caffeinated, friends

I have a fully stocked Keurig station with a variety of coffee pods, sugar and flavored creamers. I also offer complimentary bottled water & packaged snacks. 

Newborn supplies

My growing collection of newborn supplies includes diapers, wipes, pacifiers, breast pads and hand sanitizer. A bottle warmer is also available for you to use.

Dedicated Playroom

I know it's not always possible to find a babysitter for your newborn session, so I have created a separate playroom in the lobby of my studio for older siblings to enjoy.

Choosing the right photographer for your baby’s first portraits is an important decision. These sessions are extremely delicate and require a lot of training and patience. Over the past decade I’ve taken courses on safety and posing, learned from some of the biggest names in the industry and photographed over 200 sweet, snuggly newborns. 

My studio is typically one of the very first places that parents bring their newborn. I fully understand the gravity of that decision and I want you to know that you are bringing your little one to a safe space that has been designed (and cleaned!) with you in mind. During our time together I promise to handle and care for your new baby as if it were my own. Your comfort and baby’s safety are my first priority. 

When it comes to props, only the best will do.

I admit it... I'm a prop hoarder. I love finding new pieces to help customize each session for my clients! 

I have a large collection of headbands, hats, fabrics, posing bowls and unique backdrops. I love to support small businesses that create unique pieces and most of what I purchase is custom made. 

While I do invite parents to bring a small item from home to personalize their session, you can rest assured that I have everything we need to create a fully styled, unique portrait session for your little one. 


Your baby’s safety has always been and continues to be my number one concern. While studio cleanliness has always been a priority, in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic I will be taking extra steps for your health as well as my own.
