  • It seems like there are so many jobs these days: I mean you can be a social media influencer... who would have thought about that when I was in high school and we didn't have computers and much less cell phones!? Out of all the options out there, you've got to admit I have one of the coolest jobs ever! I get to hold fresh beautiful little babies, photograph them and meet their family in one of the most joyful times of their lives (tired but very HAPPY). Yeah, it's really pretty awesome! Oh a [...]

  • Kilian, Pensacola Newborn Photographer

  • I'm in an editing frenzy trying to catch up with all my sessions. I'm super grateful for all my little clients and their parents and so wish I could deliver their edited gallery faster. As it turns out, contrary to my original estimations, as time goes by I take longer and longer to edit each picture. I'm becoming more critical and painfully detailed oriented. I'm adding more tools in my digital darkroom equipment to get the look I want to achieve. I keep learning new technics and doubt I wi [...]
Olivia, Pensacola Newborn Photographer
  • Olivia, Pensacola Newborn Photographer

  • The biggest challenge during a newborn session is to have a sleepy baby. Sleepy enough that you can move him/her in all those cute little folded squishy poses. That's why we recommend to bring plenty of extra milk, once full newborns tend to fall into that drunken milk state, allowing us to "mold" baby and get some great images. Little miss Olivia was totally out! So much so that I couldn't get her to open her eyes for my 'mug shot", a picture I like to give in timeless Black & white. It's [...]
Channing, Pensacola Newborn Photographer
  • Channing, Pensacola Newborn Photographer

  • You walk in for your newborn session one morning barely 2 weeks after you've delivered, I'm mostly busy with your little miracle. Meanwhile you can catch up on some rest, social media, and when we take a little pause for a feeding or changing, we chitchat a little. We'll also meet prior to your session (if we managed to fit it in your schedule), and agin after your session, for you to choose your images. The session itself can last a few hours, it all depends on your baby. It's not a long in [...]
Hallow, Pensacola Newborn Photographer
  • Hallow, Pensacola Newborn Photographer

  • A little over 2 years ago I photographed "Zinnamon", Hallow's big bro, as he was just a newborn. I was excited then to meet Mallory, after talking about her with her sweet mom. This time, I was really looking forward to their session, to have a nice visit and some time to catch up. It's pretty cool having repeat clients, getting to see families grow. I photographed Hallow just as she was turning 2 weeks. I know some parents worry about the "right time" to photograph their baby. I make my d [...]
  • Mental Health Awareness

  • She's beautiful, kind, smart, strong, funny, brave,... so many things and also bipolar. She's my daughter, Magalie. May is the month of Mental Health Awareness. I thought I was educated and aware, I humbly realize now I was ignorant. Last year, mental health came with a force into our home. We watched our daughter crash from the hight of a frightening manic episode into the depth of depression, and rise from it all with grace, humor and wisdom. Magalie started documenting her life from the [...]

Juliette
  • Juliette

  • A little over 2 years ago I photographed Ashley and Jeremy's first child, "Sunny", she was a rainbow baby. It took more than 6 years and lots of treatments for Ashley to have Sunny. Last year, Covid brought so many changes into our lives, Ashley and Jeremy decided it was time to commit to become foster parents. Something they had planned to do eventually. They welcomed an other child in their home. Barely a month later, they find out Ashley is pregnant, and here comes Juliette, on her own! [...]

  • Gavin, Pensacola newborn photographer

  • 3 years ago I photographed Gavin's older sister, "Adria". Her parents had the most fascinating story. Ashley's life has changed quite a bit since I last saw her, and her story remains unique and beautiful. Things don't always go as planned, we can't always control everything. However, choosing a path, a way of life is something Ashley has done and she's building a loving family for her children. It is always so much fun to see some of the newborns I've photographed as older siblings. Adria [...]
Legacy
  • Legacy

  • It's an honor every time I get to photograph a little client, but I was extremely flattered when Legacy's parents told me they were driving over 2 hours to come to my studio because they wanted my style of images for their daughter. And she was the perfect model, going into every pose like a champ. Her mom had been very proactive and thinking ahead, had bought some props to create the spa picture. Unfortunately, the shipping took a little longer than expected and she was ready to give up on t [...]
Lucas, Pensacola newborn photographer
  • Lucas, Pensacola newborn photographer

  • World, meet sweet little Lucas! He did a fantastic job on her first modeling gig. I often have parents take a little nap during the photoshoot, things are generally slow moving, it's nice and warm, with the gentle soothing sound of the baby shusher... a nice relaxing environment. Lucas' mom caught a little zzzz and it was a nice surprise for her to see some of the poses for the first time on my computer post session. It's a lovely compliment when parents fall asleep in my studio, it certainl [...]
