Fresh 48 / The J Family / Roanoke Hospital Baby Photographer

Fresh 48 photography might just be my favorite.

I know...I say that about everything. But really... less than a couple days old newborns. They're squishy, they're flaky, they're

Whether it's a hospital in Roanoke, Salem, Lynchburg, Blacksburg, or wherever...I'm always so excited to get the call that a squishy baby is on the way and that I'll be able to join them at the hospital, birth center or in their home to capture those tiny details that really do disappear in just days.

Families often book a a Motherhood Package to capture the maternity, birth, fresh 48, and newborn sessions to make sure they capture every last detail. We all know kids change fast...but that first wouldn't believe unless you saw it.


Newborn / The M Family / Roanoke Baby Photographer

Newborn babies have these little details that only last hours....days...and then they're gone.

The flaky skin.

The swollen eyes.

The little dots of acne.

The deep, wrinkly feet.


As a photographer and a mom to four...I've seen the little details that come and go in a blink of an eye. I know the little quirks that can sometimes be overlooked but will always be treasured.

the new baby isn't the first baby.

And it's my goal to make sure to get a few pictures of the newbie with their big fursiblings!

They aren't always interested, but I make sure to include them in at least a part of the newborn session! I love furbabies and always encourage them to join, if they'll settle at all!

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions - Roanoke Family Photographer

Dear Mama...

Let's take some time to celebrate you.

So, what are Mommy & Me mini sessions?

Mini sessions only happen a couple times a year. And each time, they have a purpose.

This's time to celebrate you, sweet Mama.

Each session is unique to you and your family. Emotion & moment based photography makes these sessions fun and relaxing. I want to capture your relationship...your bond...with your babies just as they are. From babies in your arms, to ones you can barely hold, I want you to love on your child the same as you always do. To play, hug, kiss, tickle, dance, breastfeed, babywear and wiggle with your little (or not so little) one. This isn't about capturing this year's Easter's about documenting the most important relationships in your life.

Who can come?

These Mommy & Me sessions are made for Mom's and their littles. And even their not so littles. Even their itty bitties they've yet to hold in their hands!

When & Where?

This years Mama & Me minis are held on two days in two locations.
