A LITTLE ABOUT CARRIE I am a wife. I am the mother of teenage twin boys and a little girl who is a preschooler. I am easy to talk to. I love baby snuggles, the little noises they make and their precious little features. I love to laugh! I LOVE creating art just for you!
These are my peeps! We have fun doing life together! They are my why!
A FEW FAVORITES: VACATION SPOT: Maui, but I’m up for finding a new favorite! COLOR: Depends on the day and purpose. I tend to wear a lot of black. SWEET TREAT: Dark chocolate all the way! BEVERAGE: Water or my pink drink! FOOD: Home cooking! Nothing beats it! LENS: 70-200mm for seniors or my 105mm for wedding and newborn details. HEELS OR FLATS: Flats! I’m short and I’m totally ok with it. ENTERTAINMENT: A comedian and laughing until you can’t breathe! CONVENIENCE: My iPhone so I always have a camera with me.
BASED OUT OF GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA

simple, soft and neutral. Babies should wear their diaper, soft newborn wraps, blankets and they may also be nude.
STYLE TIPS: The most important style tip is to wear clothes that fit; not so tight you can’t move or they are gaping open at the buttons and not so baggy you have no shape. Be careful to avoid snaps or buckles or fasteners as they may scratch the baby’s delicate skin. Avoid wearing bold colors as they will cast color on your newborn’s skin. Layering with a cardigan or light sweater can add interest and comfort. Still unsure? I’m always happy to take a look at your options. We can FaceTime, you can message me photos or I can pop over if you are here in town.

FAQs Q: May I have ALL images from my session? A: Yes. I professionally cull out all blinks, out of focus, goofy expressions and such. The rest are yours with the purchase of a full session. Q: Do you edit all of the images in my gallery? A: Yes. Basic edits have been completed on all gallery images. Skin retouching, baby acne removal, peeling skin removal, head swaps and such can be completed per image for an additional fee. These types of sessions are all about documenting the natural look of your newborn, dried milk on their lips, unclipped fingernails and all! Q: Can I make my own prints? A: Yes. Print permission is provided for all purchased sessions with easy links to MPix for printing. Q: Will you travel for a session? A: Yes. Locations within 30 minutes are included at no charge with purchase of all full session. I will happily travel further but additional fees will apply. Q: What methods of payment can you accept for my retainer and balance? A: Cash or good check or I’ll invoice you conveniently and securely for each through PayPal Me. Q: What do you mean by lifestyle images? A: Good question! Traditional portraits have the subject looking at the camera and smiling. We may capture that eye contact and smile if it happens naturally, but lifestyle is about capturing life-inspired moments. The little things you treasure about your newborn and family is what we will work to capture; how they cradle perfectly into your arms, how small their hands or feet are in comparison to you, your favorite snuggle spot and even intimate and natural moments such as breastfeeding.
