This is where your story begins. How excited were you when you found out you were expecting? You know this is one of the most important moments in your life and it deserves to be celebrated!

Maternity photography captures the love, joy, and anticipation of your little one's arrival. Through these images, your baby will always know how much they were loved even before they were born.

Maternity photos are typically taken between 28-34 weeks outdoors, at my studio, or in your home.

There are many ways to capture all of your newborn's tiny little details with newborn photography - A Fresh 48 Hospital session, a Lifestyle Newborn session at home, or a Posed Newborn Photography session in the studio.

It doesn't matter how you choose to celebrate your little one coming into the world, it only matters that you do. Every baby deserves to know how much they were loved and cherished from the very beginning.

"These photos are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much, I am so happy we were able to get in with you! Absolutely thrilled! You did an amazing shoot, everyone I show them to melts. Going to be difficult to choose a print, I could put them all up! Probably wouldn't have the wall space though!"

"We used Alicea for our maternity & newborn photos. Alicea was so patient with our newborn when she started to cry and was able to soothe her so she could get the perfect picture. I was able to feed the baby before the session started and didn't feel rushed at all. She also had so many outfit and headband options for us to choose from so I didn't have to worry about buying an outfit for our daughter."
