Beautiful Baby | Des Moines Newborn Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 May 31st, 2012|Babies|0 Comments

Can I tell you how much I love the community of photographers that I’ve found right here in Des Moines?  Thank goodness for Facebook, which allows us to connect and talk shop virtually, day or night.  But sometimes we even like to get together and photograph people.   Recently, we gathered together at a local studio to photograph moms and their babies.  We had babies from newborn through to one year old.  Because of the shear volume of us that showed up, around 80 I’m told, it was very difficult to photograph all of the babies that we had, as they were all available individually for brief periods of time.   I was able to capture a few photos, but I thought I would share one of my favorites.

I would love to capture images of you and your newborn.  I can come to the hospital or your home, or both!  Please feel free to contact me.

11-11-11 Babies | Des Moines Newborn Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 November 13th, 2011|Babies, Newborns, Portraits|0 Comments

Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of photographing six newborns who all shared the birthday of November 11, 2011.  I love photographing newborns, and the best time to capture their newness is within the first week of their birth.  Yes, I can even come to the hospital to capture this precious memory for you!

If you’re interested in having me capture images of your newborn, please call me at 515-650-3369, or here prior to giving birth so I can pencil you in on my schedule.  Then just keep me posted on your progress so I can make sure I’m available.

A few of my favorite images | Des Moines Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 February 6th, 2011|Babies, Bellies, Families, Kids, Newborns, Portraits|0 Comments

One of my photographer friends posed a challenge to me and some other photographer friends to put some of our photos into a slide show and post it on YouTube.   This is what I put together, and you can find it on YouTube, but I also wanted to share it here.

Enjoy!

Baby T | Des Moines Newborn Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:53+00:00 December 20th, 2010|Babies, Newborns|0 Comments

These are some images I captured of one week old baby T before we moved to Des Moines. I realized recently that I’d never had a chance to blog these. She was so tiny, and so sweet.  She is also a very lucky little girl who was born to amazing parents,  a big brother and sister who will love on her unconditionally.
