With my years of experience, I’ve learned the importance of truly capturing the unique essence of each family and creating a space and energy that caters to each family individually. I don’t want to just show up, shoot your session, and send you a gallery with images you’re hoping look amazing.
I want to get to know your family before the session.
What do you envision? What are your hopes for your session? Do you want a grand session capturing a lot of emotion and connection? A cozy, laid-back vibe? A fun and whimsical shoot that really captures the playfulness of your family? I want to know these things before we meet, so I can be conscious of the way that I am shooting and the prompts that I give along the way.
Long story short, I don’t want to leave you to figure out how to plan and create your dream shoot, I want to play an active role in making that come to life during our time together. I want you to look back on your session and truly feel we did everything we could to execute it <3
During our session, you will find that I love making silly noises, and singing songs about 5 keys out of tune—but hey, I’ll do what it takes to get the shot! I will warn you ahead of time, that if you are looking to get traditional, everyone smiling at the camera kinda portraits done, that isn’t what I prioritize. When I’m doing a session, I want to showcase all of the emotions felt—the cuddling, the tickles, twirls, and giggles.
I like to let emotion sing the sweet tune of the love felt in waves during your session.
“Nat is hands down the best photographer I have ever worked with! I did a maternity session and a newborn session with her and I’ve never had so much fun and felt so comfortable behind the camera. Her personality is just the best, her client closet is fantastic, she has a great eye for what will look best, and her guidance during the session made each shoot fun and exciting. I can’t forget to mention the pure joy I get every time I look at the photos, which are edited to perfection! Can’t wait for her to continue capturing more of my family’s milestones!“
"Nat was a dream to work with. My husband and I are not photo people- we rarely remember to take pictures. When we welcomed our twins, I knew that even in those early sleepless nights I would want to look back on this precious time and boy was I right. She was prepared with everything we needed, she was calm and collected. I cannot recommend Natalie enough!"
"Not only is she amazingly talented but also down to earth and makes you feel completely seen and beautiful. Then during our photo shoot on the beach, we fell in love with her because she has an incredible way of capturing those sacred emotions and moments in the most beautiful way. To know Natalie is to love her and she will forever be a friend, but also the photographer I will continue to go to time and time again."
"The hardest part about working with Nat is having to say goodbye at the end- she’s just the kind of girl you could hang with all day and never get tired of. Her work speaks for itself and we really tested her magic when my husband showed up in athletic shorts and we realized we left his pants in our hotel… but the pictures still turned out incredible!"
