When it comes to . . . I Get It!

Infertility, Miscarriage & Miracle Babies

Well, to be honest, I've only had two of the three. We struggled with infertility for many years, so I understand how precious a miracle baby can be. Families who go through so much deserve to celebrate when they get to the other side.

Adoption

We are absolutely blessed to have our beautiful son through adoption. It comes with it’s own challenges and rewards. It can take a bit of time to find your feet with a new arrival (whether they come as a baby or a bit older). You won’t get any judgement from me, only support and kindness.

Autism & Additional Needs

Being a parent to a child with Autism (and additional needs) can be a bit of a challenge to say the least (my son has Autism and other needs). You need a photographer is understands children with special needs, who is willing to learn about their unique strengths and challenges. I love being able to support families like mine and to capture their precious memories.
