New Blog Post… who’s this?

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite sometime since I posted on here. Blogging is and has never really been my thing. However I figured it was time to try my hardest to be better at it. I have a really bad habit of setting goals for my business and never following through with them. One thing that I do excel in is talking and well procrastination. So for those of you who know me, know that I could talk robber out of robbing a bank just because he would probably get so sick of listening to me yammer on that it would be one of those “if you stop talking for 5 seconds, I will leave”. Hey what can you do some are amazing at being business owners, some are not. Business is far from my forte but I would love to push pass my insecurities and really push my business to be all that it can be.

Okay so lets back track. It has been over a year since I posted, which is super embarrassing. Now don’t get me wrong I have been busy, probably way busier than I have been in a long time not only photography wise but also in my personal life as well so where to begin….

Well I am now a mother of three. Yep count em 1-2-3 tiny humans that I am required to keep alive everyday. So lets just say sleep is very limited so in my defense, blogging has not been in the cards.

I am now the proud owner of a Registered Nursing license (I say owner because well lets just say I will be forever paying student loans until I no longer walk this  earth, so yes I own that bad boy, well partially). I started my nursing career as Neuro/ Vascular Surgery nurse but now have ventured off to the dark, scary, depths that is the Emergency Department. It was bitter sweet but I think its going to be a great change for me. I am so excited to see where this career path will take me.

It feels like I will be a forever student because I am currently working on my Bachelors Degree in Nursing at Emmanuel College in Boston, MA. I hope to graduate with that degree by this time next year. Then one day hope to attend school to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.

Lets see what else is there, oh yeah I opened up my very first studio in downtown New Bedford, MA in May of last year. Although it still needs some work, I love the joy it has brought to me and my clients. Being able to have my very own place has really brought back my joy of photography.

Last year was a tough one, pregnancy was not nice to me this time around all on top of starting a very demanding career as a nurse. I unfortunately really had to take a step away from photography last year which is something I promised myself the beginning of 2018 I would not do. After taking on the studio I promised myself that this would be my year, 2018 was going to be one for the books. Obviously life happens and 2018 was an amazing year but just for other reasons. I gave birth to a perfect 7lb 15oz little boy named Oliver Henry, which has brought me so much joy and a whole lot less sleep. I wouldn’t change last year for the world.

So even though we are already half way through the year, that is perfectly okay. Things take time. Rome was not built in a day and I need to not be so tough on myself. I look forward to the rest of this year and all of the clients I have worked with thus far and will continue to work with for the rest of the year. Please keep a close eye out for any and all sessions that I will be doing my best to publish. Be prepared though because I have been a busy lady and have some amazing sessions to share! 🙂




Levi | Newborn | Freetown, MA

This family has a special place in my heart! I have had the opportunity of photographing them for years now! Not to mention Caroline is a hair color wizard! So to everyone who asks me who does my hair, its this girl right here! She is amazing!


Not only is she amazing at hair but she is an amazing mother of two and seriously births the most perfect tiny humans ever! Miss adeline is two and is full of sugar and spice and everything sassy! This little girl keeps her parents on their toes and then there is the newest addition who is such a little sweetie! Congrats to you all on your newest addition.

PS please reconsider a third. cough cough ❤ 🙂 DSC_0535_BW


Payton | 2 weeks new | Acushnet, MA

“She may be little but she is fierce”


This teenie tiny princess came to visit me at just about two weeks old weighing just over 4 lbs. Miss Payton had to spend sometime in the NICU, so we had to push her session back a bit however we ended up taking her photos on her actual due date and she slept like a dream!


She was the sweetest little thing and her parents were amazing! When mom contacted me and said “very girlie, pink and floral” that was music to my ears. Anyone who knows me knows that peonies are my favorite flower ever. So I immediately had to make a trip to the store for some pink peonies! And I may have placed an order or two for some other items for this little beauties session!



It was a pleasure photographing this beautiful little family! Congrats to you all! xo


Correia Maternity | Newport RI

DSC_9868Majority of my maternity sessions take place on location outdoors or in studio, but obviously in New England the weather isn’t always predictable unfortunately. So with this crazy weather and the unpredictability of babies, we opted for a new location. All I can say is WOW was it amazing! Stepped out of my comfort zone and can I just say I am so glad I did this family rocked this session as they always do!


So firstly can you say FLAWLESS! The dress, hair, makeup, location….everything was absolutely perfect for this session. Caroline is absolutely stunning and I was very sad to hear that this will be her last pregnancy, still keeping my fingers crossed that maybe she’ll change her mind because her and her high school sweetheart make the most beautiful babies ever!


I have been photographing this family since Little Miss Adeline made her grand debut! I love watching this family grow, it is hands down the best part about doing what I do! I have known Caroline since we were kids and having the opportunity to photograph her  family is amazing! I am so happy for the three of you and cannot wait to meet this handsome, yet stubborn little guy! (Note: Mama is now 4 days over due) Fingers crossed that Mr. Levi doesn’t make his very uncomfortable mama wait much longer!




Ventura Maternity | Dartmouth, MA |

This beautiful couple finished out 2017 with the birth of their handsome little boy! I have known Sara since high school and was honored when she contacted me to document such a special time in her life! They choose the most gorgeous and perfect location for their session and lets be serious how stunning does she look! Pregnancy suits you! I am so incredibly happy for the three of you!



Hunter’s Heart | CHD Awareness | New Bedford, MA


Please say hello to Hunter! This sweet little boy was born with Tetralogy of Fallot-Pulmonary Atresia and as you can see he is quite the little fighter. I was honored to have the opportunity to photograph this handsome little guy.

On January 23rd Hunter underwent open heart surgery to repair his VSD and lets just say this little boy rocked his scar in honor or CHD Awareness week!

His dad who is a Marine Vetran and his mother who is one of the sweetest people I have ever met are such rockstars and I admire them! Hunter is such a sweet, spunky little guy and I look forward to watching him grow and bring awareness and hope to every child and family out there who is born with CHD.

CHD effects over 44K children and families each year! Please consider genetic prenatal and newborn testing!

Also please consider making a donation to this amazing little family at GO FUND ME HUNTER’S HEART and following them over on their Facebook page HUNTERS HEART FB for updates on upcoming surgeries and to watch this little fighter grow!


The Cruz Family |Maternity | New Bedford, MA

There is nothing I love more than having the ability to watch families grow together. This is one of the first families I have had the privilege of photographing since I relocated from Virginia. It all started with a lemonade stand first birthday cake smash!

So when they contacted me to document their second pregnancy I was ecstatic! The beach was gorgeous and that sky though! Can you even stand how gorgeous Jess is! Like seriously a flawless pregnant mama!

And although this post is a little bit on the late side thats okay because I’m super excited that in a few short weeks I get to photograph this amazing family of four soon to be five! Yep you read correctly! Cruz Party of 5 coming in May 2018!


Jenn&Andy Say I Do | New Bedford, MA

“We are all a little weird,                                                                                                                  and life’s a little weird,                                                                                                                   and when we find someone                                                                                                         whose weirdness is compatible                                                                                                    with ours, we join up with them                                                                                                     and fall in mutual weirdness                                                                                                           and call it love”

So I’m typically not a super emotional person but lets just say a good wedding does bring me to tears. Yes full blown cry tears. Don’t judge me! This wedding was gorgeous and the bride was stunning! I don’t post a lot of weddings because they are not my forte. I’m more of the (what happens after the honeymoon) kind of photographer haha bring me all the pregnant bellies and babies! However when I do have someone contact me for a wedding I hardly ever turn it down. Its fun to photograph something that I don’t usually do! Step out of my comfort zone and enjoy a good cry! 🙂



Adrian | 14 days New | New Bedford, MA

I always have clients who ask prior to a session “What happens if my baby won’t sleep! Then what!?” WELL….WE GO WITH THE FLOW! lol I have photographed so many newborns, and I can promise you that if you little one doesn’t sleep they are not the first and will certainly not be the last! Newborn babies are on their own program which I am sure you know based on the sleepless nights I am sure you are currently having. Newborn photography takes an incredible amount of patiences which you will be happy to know I have plenty of! So please ease your mind knowing that even if your little one won’t sleep, we will get beautiful images of your handsome little guy or beautiful little girl regardless!

Now this little guy was having nothing to do with sleeping on this particular day but thats perfectly fine because sometimes photos with them wide awake end up being the very best! This just happens to be the second little boy this year that I have had the privilege of photographing with a full head of hair! Can you even stand it! How gorgeous is he! Even though sleeping was not his thing I think we still managed to get some amazing photos of his sweet little rolls and his wonderful parents!


Eli | Newborn | New Bedford, MA

Eli (Not to be confused with Manny, just as an FYI) is a New England Patriots fan! Just wanted to get that straight before hand! lol

This little bundle of sweetness was a dream to photograph. Not only did he sleep so soundly during his session but check out all of that hair! I’ve known this little guys mom for quite sometime now and it was great to have the opportunity to photograph her  newest addition! I also had the company of his very helpful big sister! Great job mom and dad! They are both beautiful!
