Your first moments with your new baby are life-changing. It is euphoric and exhausting. The first year is a beautiful blur and my goal is to document it so you actually remember the moments in fine, tangible detail.
Maternity sessions are relaxed and joyful. Expect a gallery of you in baby's nursery and where you and/or your partner enjoy spending the most time together. I focus on the connection between you and the growing life inside you as well as the connections between you and your partner during this exciting and (sometimes) anxious and jittery time of life!
The time in the hospital after the birth of your baby is one of the most special, surreal moments in life. I connect deeply with these fleeting days (or sometimes just hours if you deliver at a birth center!) and I strive to capture your experience authentically by documenting it simply and beautifully. Booked before birth, these sessions have limited availability.
Baby-led, lifestyle portraits of baby + family in the first few precious weeks of life. Expect a gallery of relaxed, documentary-style photos in the coziest areas of your home. Nursery details, baby's tiny features, and the emotional connections between your family. Also includes light baby-led posing which is great for birth announcements.
Very similar to the full newborn session, the newborn petite is a simply a shorter session with a smaller final gallery. Includes lifestyle/documentary images in your home as well as baby-led posing. Does not include nursery details or multiple swaddle/outfit changes.
Nancy did an incredible job photographing my baby girl for our daughter’s first year of life. I was a new mom and a ball of nerves and she made me, my husband, and our dog so comfortable. Also, she's a baby whisperer. We love our pictures and couldn't have had a better experience!
I cannot say enough positive things about Nancy and her work. She is talented, creative, calm and FUN to work with! She has a knack for capturing the simple, sweet moments of everyday life with little ones. The photos she's taken of our baby boy are incredible, and we cherish them. She puts my husband and me at ease, and she remembers the fur babies too! Nancy is exceptional and I would recommend her to anyone!
Nancy made our photo session incredibly relaxed and fun. She has a gift with working with children, pets, and camera-shy husbands making the process easy and stress free. On top of that I was so impressed with the variety and quality of our photos. I have received so many compliments on the ones we used for our birth announcement. It was hard to choose which ones to use. She did an outstanding job! I highly recommend Nancy for any professional photography needs!
When we took our first vacation as a family after our daughter was born, Nancy was the perfect person to capture our first day at the beach together. We barely even knew she was there, except for a few subtle suggestions every now and then. We got to totally focus on our daughter’s first reactions to feeling her toes in the sand and splashing in the ocean— and the photos perfectly captured her elation and our authentic emotions in the moment. These are some of our favorite photos ever; it was hard to choose which ones to display in our house because we love them all so much! Nancy was such a pro and was just a lot fun to spend the day with!
Nancy has done a number of photo sessions with my family and we could not be more pleased with the outcome! She has an amazing personality that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable during your session; and she has a true talent of being able to capture the pure emotion you are feeling! Even when my toddler does not want to cooperate, she is able to get him to laugh and return back to me with the sweetest pictures! The photos I have gotten back from my sessions with her are ones that will be framed and treasured by our family forever!
Our family had an awesome experience with Nancy for a beach photo session. Nancy has a great natural ability in connecting with people, especially young kids. I was worried our infant and toddler would be too distracted to take photos, but Nancy kept them engaged and captured fun moments of them playing and also managed to get the "traditional" family shots without any trouble. Nothing felt forced or predictable. As a local islander, Nancy recommended a great spot that wasn't too busy and even helped finding a close spot to park. I received our pictures quickly and they were incredible. Several shots from this session are hanging in our home and have been used for party invitations. Working with Nancy was super easy and really fun. I have and will continue to recommend her!
