newborn, Maternity & Family photography

Thoughtful photography for moms who are the heartbeat of the family.
For your big, beautiful life-altering moments. For the chaos and the calm in-between.
It’s time to shine a light on all that you do.
Because your motherhood journey is worth capturing.

natural & honest

lifestyle photography

For the new mom who’s overwhelmed and doesn’t know up from down, for the mom right in the thick of motherhood with babies, for the mom who is the heart of her family but questions her value - I see you. I see everything you’re doing and your family sees it too. 

When you work with me, I want your session to be as stress-free as possible. I’ll prepare you with a guide on what to expect, wardrobe tips, how to get your home ready and so much more. Our time together doesn’t end with the last click of my shutter - after the session, I’ll guide you through the process of turning those digital files into printed goods to display around your home.

The Process

If you've love my work and everything you've read on my site resonates with you, just fill out my Contact Form to get even more information. From there we'll chat on the phone so I can find out a little bit more about you and what you're looking for.

Once you've booked your photo session, you'll receive a guide that will walk you through everything from choosing outfits to getting your home and family ready. The guide is based on a decade of experience and typically answers any questions that come up.

It's the day of your session! Newborn sessions take place in your home, typically around 10am and last 1-2 hours.

Maternity and Family sessions take place either in your home or one of my preferred outdoor locations on weekday mornings or just before sunset.

Three weeks after your session is when it all comes together with your gallery delivery. From here, you can download and share your digital images.

Next, through an intuitive and seamless gallery, you can choose custom printed goods from prints to albums and frames. These are heirlooms that will truly stand the test of time.

next steps and what to expect





Working with Nicole was the most grace-filled experience for this first time mama! She fully prepared us for the time together beforehand with very helpful tips! The morning of was hectic for us - a fussy baby, excited grandparents, and working-from-home parents all coming together. Nicole met us at our home for an in-home session, bringing with her her equipment, but also her peaceful, kind, bright presence. She was able to beautifully direct us and captured joy-filled scenes that our families will treasure forever.

I’m dedicated to shining a light on motherhood through thoughtful and honest photos, and helping you see yourself the way your family sees you. I’m not seeking perfection - I’m here for the beauty in the mundane, the magic in the ordinary. That's why I love offering lifestyle newborn, family and maternity sessions in the comfort of your home.

At-home sessions are my favorite way to photograph a family - as the beautiful, silly, simple moments of your story naturally unfold. As a mom and an artist, I believe that you should not only have photos of your children but with your children. To see all the good you’re doing and know your family sees it too.

frequently asked questions


I strive to capture the love and authenticity of your family in an honest, timeless and organic manner. With a non-invasive approach, I work to make sure you are comfortable and capture you connecting with your children. I specialize in at-home lifestyle photography and I understand how to find the best natural light in and around your home. I have patience and flexibility of working with kiddos of all ages and I value both traditional (think, smiling at the camera) and documentary (think, interacting with each other) photography.

All sessions take place on weekdays. At-Home sessions are scheduled for mid-morning and take place in your house and yard. Outdoor sessions are scheduled for mid-morning or in the evening before sunset and take place in a designated park in Lagrangeville, NY. Timing and location is intentional based on lighting, my aesthetic and my experience of working with children. I know it can be a little worrisome planning around everybody’s schedules and moods but I have tips to guide you through this!
