Becci is wildly talented!!! We are so fortunate we found her!! Our friends and family can not stop raving about them! My boys do not sit well for anyone but she seemed flawless as she worked around it and was so sweet and professional in her disposition! Not only do I love her my husband loved the shoot as well! I HIGHLY recommend her!!! Julia S.
Our family session with Becci was a completely 'worth-it' experience! The time with her was relaxed as she worked her magic with the youngest of our family. She is a skilled artist. She thoroughly knows the location and the lighting and directed our movement in a way that, to us, seemed effortless. The only thing I can figure is that she had a 'love' lens on her camera that allowed the heart of our family to be captured images. Beverly D
Becci makes you all feel comfortable & is so patient. It really feels more like a family date night rather than family pictures. My son has social anxiety and has a very hard time with pictures & with new people. I was pleasantly surprised when my son was actually smiling, playing, & genuinely happy. I was so excited when I saw the finished photos. She has a talent for capturing the true essence of a family. I refer her to loved ones regularly! Crystal M.
the Fajardo family Every once in a while, I am lucky enough to be able to capture the arrival of a Rainbow baby. Although every baby is special to me this one was a little extra special. In fact, her entire family is pretty special. When mama shared with me their story she opened up about infertility and loss. She shared with me about the joy of adopting their older daughter who has special needs and the most beautifully contagious smile. She spoke of how long she had been hoping and praying for this new little love in her belly. This Rainbow baby was born on a Saturday & I eagerly met her on a Sunday morning with a room filled with people who already loved her. While mama was holding her, I played “Somewhere over the Rainbow” on my speaker and observed as mama took in every ounce of that moment. By the end we were both in tears. These are the moments that life is about and I feel honored every time someone trust me to be the storyteller that gets to capture it.

Any new mother knows that those first few moments after a child is born is the most magical time in the entire world. It also can go by way too quickly. You want to remember every single moment as a new family but often times these moments in the hospital can be such a blur as you adjust to the new little babe. That is why Fresh 48 sessions are by far my favorites. I will come visit you in the hospital sometime within the first 48 hours after the arrival of your sweet little one. For about an 1-2 hours I will capture all of those first precious moments of pure, honest love and connection. All you have to do is enjoy those new little toes and adorable little nose. I will take care of the rest. Trust ume, nothing will ever compare to having these precious moments of your story captured for you to cherish forever. Bringing a new baby home is such a special time in the story of a family. Home is where they will learn to crawl and take their first steps. It is the place that will hold all of their memories as a child. In-home newborn sessions are a wonderful option because your family and be where they are the most comfortable. I will come to your home and just hang out and play for about 1-2 hours and capture your family being perfectly themselves, in their favorite spaces, with their favorite people. We all know too well that one day the children will be grown, the toys will gone, and the hallways will be quiet. That is why these sessions matter. There will never be a more perfect time to capture your store as it is in this exact moment. 6

From maternity to newborn, I am here with you the entire time. I will help you look and feel your best
CHOOSE PIECES FOR COMFORT It's impossible to know how you will feel following giving birth. Most likely you will want to be comfortable. Its easy to combine comfort with a little style. One of my favorite looks is a comfy tank top or jersey dress with a fun kimono, robe, or long cardigan. TEXTURES I LOVE using textures to add interest to Newborn photos. Choose soft textures like lace, silk, chiffon, or even beautiful knit (cable knit is a personal favorite.) They are soft for mama and look beautiful on camera. Plus, for those mamas who are hoping for skin to skin or breastfeeding images (trust me you will want a few of these) a soft robe or sweater is easy to take off and put back on .
COLORS MATTER When choosing your outfit colors for your Maternity or Newborn Session I always recommend going for a more neutral palette. Creams, whites, soft colors are perfect and keep the focus on the beautiful belly bump or brand-new babe. If you are like me and like to add a little color pop go for it! Just keep it to one color that will compliment the neutrals you have chosen.
DON'T FORGET MATERNITY Dresses are always my #1 go to for Maternity sessions. Whether you go for a maxi or a shorter dress, try to keep the colors and textures soft and pick a fabric that is flowy and allows for movement.
DRESSING THE REST OF THE FAMILY The same rules apply when choosing outfits for the rest of the family. Older siblings are always cute in “Big Brother/Sister” shirts but are just as cute in basic white/grey tops or colors that coordinated with Mama’s outfit. If you have an outfit you love for the new babe go ahead and bring it! I will always bring a basic white onesie and a few cute swaddles so don’t worry if you don’t have anything special. As for your partner, keep it simple. No graphic tees or anything with logos/writing (it gets too distracting). Again, basic tees in neutrals are always an easy option. IN-HOSPITAL SESSIONS Most local hospitals use a bit of teal in the color schemes of their rooms. Just something to keep in mind if you are thinking about having an In-Hospital Fresh 48. Neutral colors and even soft pastels work well with teal. If you are thinking adding a pop of color I like how pinks, reds, oranges, and some yellows work with the teal. IN_HOME SESSIONS When planning for your In-Home Newborn Session you will want to pick out pieces that compliment the colors you already have in your home. I love a soft and flowy maxi dress for In-home Sessions. The same rules apply when it comes to choosing textures and clothes for the rest of the family. As always, if you need assistance I am here and happy to help you put it all together.
