Top Studio Features

Complimentary Wifi

If you need to get some work done or if you just want to veg out and aimlessly scroll social media during your newborn session, you can to hook up to my WiFi!

Coffee bar & snacks

We provide a fully stocked Keurig station with a variety of coffees, sugar and creamers. We also have bottled water & packaged snacks available. 

Newborn supplies

My growing stash of newborn necessities includes a changing table, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, breast pads, a bottle warmer, and hand sanitizer. 

Dedicated playroom

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

Image presentation room

A few days after your session, you'll return to the studio once more to view your full gallery of portraits in our dedicated presentation room. 

Products on display

From wall art to albums, birth announcements and gifts for the family, all of our unique portrait products are available in studio for you to see in person. 

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 400 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. 

Quick note- this video shows my old studio in The Market Common that I worked in for 8 wonderful years. My current studio location is in Murrells Inlet. Stay tuned for a new video later this year!

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. 

Get directions to the studio

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.
