Hi there!

This is me! The photographer at Sweet Beginnings Photography! (And my babes below) I shoot with a Nikon D750 and Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 lens mostly. I live in Lincoln, California, which is near Sacramento. I picked up my first camera soon after having my first child, Ethan,  in 2010. It wasn’t anything fancy, in fact I believe we picked it up from the local Rite Aid. I just had this crazy, nagging urge to photograph every moment of his first moments. I love movement in images. I love connection. I love golden, dappled light and the way it dances and bounces around on my subject’s skin. I love airy images as well as moody images. I continuously dip my toe in whatever moves me for the day and I think that is so important.

 

Being a family and newborn photographer absolutely grabs me in the deepest depths of my soul. To see mothers connecting with their sweet baby’s in the womb and out is so beyond moving and it is so necessary to capture. It’s quite easy to get caught up in the day to day monotony as moms. We are typically frazzled and burning the candle at both ends. Our role is possibly the most important, yet we are almost always the ones behind the camera. We need to be in front of it, hugging our babies and capturing those tiny little moments that all add up to something magical and indescribable. The bond between a parent and child can never be put into words but I want to freeze it………freeze it in time, so that we all have something to cherish as we grow older. Something we can all hold onto that is tangible and real. By the way, this image is EVERYTHING to me!

Thanks for stopping by!
