Newborn At Home Session | Ben & Sabena

Newborn At Home Session | Ben & Sabena

It was a joy capturing this newborn at home session at Ben and Sabena’s new home in Atlanta. Ben and Sabena just welcomed home baby Evelyn, and they couldn’t be more smitten. I photographed Ben and Sabena’s wedding in the winter of 2018, so I love this full circle moment. Expanding my work into maternity, newborn, and family over the past few months has allowed me to grow with my clients. I love being able to look back on all the milestones we’ve experienced together. It’s one of the most rewarding things about this profession.

Their session was wonderful, and I loved that their home featured plenty of natural light and open spaces – these are both key for at home sessions. The neutral tones throughout their home came to life beautifully on film and were so fun to capture! One of the best parts about at home sessions is witnessing the comfort clients feel in front of the lens. There’s something about being within the walls of their own home that allows clients to act natural and calm. Not to mention, being able to incorporate the special items like the chair that holds them to soothe the 2AM tears, or the favorite swaddle. Seeing Ben and Sabena’s interactions with baby Evelyn was heartwarming, and I’m happy we were able to include their family dog, Canon, in some photos, too. Ben and Sabena, thank you for allowing me to capture Evelyn’s newborn at home session for you. I loved every minute of it!

welcome to my journal

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

let's meet!


North Beach was the perfect location for Nicole and Rob's Tybee Island session. While they played with their pup, Lucy, I simply followed. We ran together on the sand, not worrying for once about dirty hems or windy hair.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
