The first year of a child’s life flies by in a hurried, sleepless haze. The brand new, itty bitty baby stage comes and goes in the blink of an eye. Why not take an intentional moment to freeze time and savor every milestone before it quickly passes by? 

My goal as a photographer is to approach the journey of motherhood as a real-life documentary. Not necessarily capturing “picture perfect” moments, but a day-in-the-life approach to the beautiful chaos that is a first year of motherhood. I want these photos to truly reflect each family and portray the joy they feel during this time. Through my intentional pairing of gentle guidance and natural moments, I am able to provide my clients refined and authentic memories to last a lifetime.

Your phone is your primary camera and is filled with photos of your kids. You want to capture it all, but most of your photos are blurry, the lighting is poor, and you have far more outtakes than frame-worthy moments.   Or maybe you're the new DSLR owner. You received a DSLR camera when your kids were born, but you have no idea how to use it. Auto mode isn’t giving you quality images and you’re overwhelmed at the thought of shooting in manual mode.

this is for you!

Dear Mamas,

sweet words


Trish is such a wonderful photographer! Her photos are AMAZING, and she is so easy to work with. We've now worked with Trish 3 times - for our pregnancy announcement, maternity, and newborn photos. Even my husband - who doesn't normally like to take photos - has commented on how comfortable he feels during our sessions with Trish. And our friends/family constantly tell us how beautiful, bright, and airy the photos are. I completely agree! Our photos will be cherished forever! We highly recommend Trish and cannot wait to work with her again in the future!

I couldn't recommend Trish more for your newborn photos! I love her timeless style and, not surprising, our gallery was full of gorgeous images of our family and our new baby girl that we will cherish forever! She captured our family so perfectly! She also made our session so easy and was SO great at making our 3 year old comfortable by taking the time to chat with him and get him to warm up to her! I can't wait for her to capture our family as our kids grow!

Trish came to the hospital to do a Fresh 48 session two days after we had our daughter Emery. Being sleep deprived brand new parents is hard, but Trish couldn’t have made it easier or more enjoyable. We were so comfortable with her during a vulnerable time and she had such a calming presence. I couldn’t help but tear up when we received the photos back. Babies truly grow and change so quickly and it’s amazing to look back at our photos and see just how tiny she was. We will forever cherish our beautiful photos.
