Hi! I'm thrilled you're here!

 I started loving photography when I was a pre-teen, and really, the obsession never wavered. My favorite Christmas present was my very first DSLR camera! I go back to the days of the darkroom to develop film, folks! The time of stop bath and eagerly waiting to see your image develop. Anyone else remember that?! In school, I took every photography class offered, and loved learning about the photography world. My first job was as a camera sales associate at Ritz Camera, and taking pictures was always my favorite passtime.

Although after college I went on to teach high school Spanish for 8 years, photography still remained my main interest. So, in March of 2010, I decided to move forward with photography full time. It’s been a joy – from bridals and weddings, to babies and children, I have enjoyed so much from this adventure.

 In July of 2011, we welcomed our first baby girl, Emma, and since then my focus and interest naturally shifted to maternity, newborns and baby’s 1st year milestones. I knew right away that these portraits were my love. I just can't get enough newborn squishiness! In 2014, I was SO excited to mentor with the talented Kristen Mackey of Son Kissed Photography. Ever so grateful to absorb as much as possible, I learned the safest way to pose and work with newborns to result in both a comfortable experience for them, and amazingly beautiful images for their families. Training in both safety and newborn posing, combined with 14 years of experience, results in beautifully curated galleries for families, each and every time.

Nothing beats sharing in the excitement as a couple celebrates their pregnancy, seeing the love in their eyes as I mold and pose their new baby in precious ways, and the tears of happiness when parents first see these captures created for them to cherish forever.  Those adorably chubby cheeks, wiggling toes, soft tufts of hair, and yummy baby rolls are over-the-top precious! Photography has always been my passion, and I am very thankful to be able to work with growing families!

”Amazing doesn't even begin to describe Beth-Ann during our Newborn Photography session! She was absolutely incredible from the moment we walked into the door. She is so welcoming and puts you at complete ease with how lovingly she cares for your baby. She truly treats your little one like her own. Beth-Ann was a picture of patience and took utmost care with him throughout the entire session. I can't recommend her enough to capture those precious images you will cherish forever.”

"Beth-Ann is a true artist. We chose her to do our maternity/newborn session after looking through at least 50+ photographers' galleries online. Her work stood out as the absolute best in the area, so we booked her. She went above and beyond to reschedule our outdoor session when it was too windy, and she knew how much the outdoor photos meant to us. She also made sure that when our newborn was too tired to finish the day we could come back for more if we wished. The memories that she captured for us surpassed all expectations we had! She caught the love and happiness that we feel so accurately that every time we look at our photos our hearts melt. She didn't just provide us a service, she gave us a gift that only she could give.

Beth-Ann's personality and the way she runs her business is also something to rave about. From the moment we met her, her warmth and sweet personality made us feel extremely comfortable. This is an such an important quality for a photographer to have if you want your images to be natural and true! We felt like we were old friends by the end of our shoots. Also her studio is AMAZING! Her style and skills aren't something that is taught in a class- this is her artwork and her creativity coming to life. New parents: go to her! She will handle your little bundle of joy carefully and with love as you relax by watching some tv or taking a nap. My husband and I felt like we were at the spa after being new parents for a week.

Every penny is worth it. Beth-Ann has one goal and that is you are pleased with your session and images. She ROCKS!" Kristen

"Beth-Ann has been an absolute pleasure to work with! Her work top notch, and her talent and patience is evident in her work. We have a beautiful collection of pictures of our family and newest addition that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. She went above and beyond during our session, spending extra time with the baby when she wasn’t sleeping, and capturing some great moments with our very active toddler and the new baby. She truly wants you to have exceptional pictures and will do everything to ensure that happens! The entire photo shoot was a wonderful experience. Her studio is beautiful and allows sleep-deprived parents to relax and enjoy themselves worry-free.  We have spent hours looking at every picture and admiring every detail, and her work has been enjoyed by all of our family members. Beth-Ann has given us a priceless keepsake. I would recommend her to anyone! “
