This is my first blog post as I begin this new adventure of starting my newborn photography business. I am excited to see where this takes me. Being that I am a “little bit” older than most beginning in this business, I believe my various life experiences over the years and having run a successful wedding planning business for 14 years, will give me the insight, creativity and vision for this new business. Having children and grandchildren has taught me so much and I believe being “older and wiser'" but always young at heart, gives me an advantage of being patient, gentle and loving to the newborns I will photograph.
Besides posting about the newest newborn I photographed, I also hope to post tips for moms and their newborns, funny stories, or whatever I think will be interesting and relevant to newborns and newborn photography. And, I may throw in a little contest every once in a while, so keep checking back. You never know when one may pop up.

Okay. Time for today’s post.
I had been looking for some way to get involved and give back to my community. When I decided to become a newborn photographer, I knew just the place – SOLVE Maternity Homes. “SOLVE Homes offers housing, mentorship, and community for pregnant women of all ages in need.” They are a privately funded non-profit organization that operates through donations and volunteerism. For the protection of the mothers and their babies, names will never be used.
I recently had my first opportunity to photograph one of their newest arrivals – Baby “L.” This baby boy was so chill and was a delight to photograph. Thank you, SOLVE, and I look forward to volunteering my services again to these mama’s and their newborns. Don't you just love his expression in this photo?
