A.J. is currently the only newborn photographer on the team. And she's a film photographer.
Yes, you read that right. She photographs on film!
Film creates a sense of movement in her images that is truly breathtaking. You can almost feel the moment with a film image. The colors are truer, the process is more intentional and the final product is one I’m so proud to deliver to my couples. Photographing on film is a true art process. As a photographer, she has to be intentional and prepared for every moment. It means she's more deliberate. Every image matters, and every click means she's watched and waited for a moment to unfold. Because of this, every photo is a real, emotional, heartfelt image that hold the feeling of what was truly happening in that moment.
It means you get a photographer who cares. One who views what they do as a true art form. Who knows that she's photographing once in a lifetime moments and will give everything she has to make sure it’s thoroughly and beautifully captured. With 12 years of experience and 3 children of her own, she brings so much more to your session than just photography. Being a mom herself, she knows how fleeting these moments are. One minute they’re teeny tiny in your arms and the next they’re speaking in full sentences. It’s cliche but babies don’t keep. That’s why we all love photography. A single precious moment, gone in a second, but captured in a photo forever.
All of A.J.'s newborn sessions are lifestyle based. These happen in the home with your family interacting and loving on the new baby. Her goal is authentic lifestyle imagery. If possible, she will take a portrait of your baby, but posed sleeping baby portraits are an entirely separate art and require a controlled studio set up. If this is your preference, please email and we can send some referrals for other photographers!
A.J. has a variety of newborn lifestyle packages and a la carte options.
