The Studio

Welcome to my home studio! If you are booking an in-person consultation or a studio session,
you will be traveling to my home studio (Toms River, NJ 08735).

Here, you will not only feel right at home because I am able to provide you with the simple amenities of a home (boppy, bottle warmer, changing table, fridge, couch, TV, etc...); I believe it also provides an unparalleled level of trust to those that may not know me personally prior to our session.

I do not take my career lightly. Handing your brand new baby that you have been carefully caring for since you found out you were pregnant to a stranger can be a little unsettling. Rest assured that I am thoroughly trained and certified to be providing tips and tricks for preparing baby for the session and handling your little one safely throughout the session.

My calendar does fill up quite quickly. Expecting clients should reserve the session as early as possible to retain your session in my calendar. 
It's is never too early to book in order to ensure a spot during the recommended time frame. I typically book 2-3 months in advance.

Clients will receive access to my client portal with all of the information on what to expect, what to pack, what to wear, etc. I will work hand in hand with you on choosing the location, gown/wardrobe selections, and couple/family styling to ensure that your photo session meets your vision.


Each collection offers a print credit that can be applied to the purchase of heirloom products. Product credits are valid for 30 days from proofing gallery delivery.
I offer a large variety of unique items including: prints, canvases, heirloom albums, accordion books, custom wall designs. and more. 
Clients are not required to purchase products; however, on average my clients tend to invest between $250-$1,500 on beautifully crafted heirloom products. 

I pride myself on providing a relaxed and enjoyable photoshoot experience from start to finish. I offer a fabulous selection of maternity gowns and separates in a variety of sizes and styles for all of my maternity clients to use during their sessions. Makeup and hair styling can be performed at the studio by one of my recommended vendors. Make it an afternoon of well-deserved pampering. 

Sessions are best photographed during weeks 28-34. Maternity sessions can either be taken on location or in studio. 

All outdoor sessions are taken about 60-90 minutes before sunset to ensure that we have the best lighting.

Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.

I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to engaged couples for the last 12 years. I have photographed over 150 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web. Go ahead and Google me :)

3 years ago, I decided that I wanted to specialize in newborns as well. I have spent the last 3 years working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with other newborn specialists to learn everything I could about these beautiful little people.

Whether you are looking to show off that new flashy engagement ring or celebrate the growth of your family, I am your girl!

I have been photographing women's bodies of all sizes for over 12 years and specifically working with expectant moms for over 3 years now. I know the female form and how to pose it to look the most flattering. You will leave a session with me empowered and feeling as good as you look.

Why Choose me?


Clients love that I have a private studio on the first floor of my home. This means there are no interruptions during your session and you can make yourself right at home. You may try on any of my studio wardrobe pieces and if you are treating yourself to hair and makeup, sit back and relax while you are pampered.


My photographic style is warm, natural and rustic chic. I prefer to use neutral, soft colors and earth tones when styling your session although I am happy to incorporate any ideas or colors that you would like used. Pregnancy comes and goes fairly quickly but trust me, at some point you will miss it and having stunning timeless photos of that special time will not be regretted.


Prior to your session, clients have the opportunity to provide set-up, color and pose preferences via an online questionnaire and (optional) phone consultation. I love to work with my clients when styling their maternity sessions using their favorite colors and poses.

On location sessions require a fee of $50+ (varies by distance)
Weekend sessions require a $50 weekend fee

All clients are offered a complimentary planning and design appointment once their proofs are ready for review.
Heirloom product credits are valid for 30 days from proofing gallery delivery.
