Children’s Photography for Every Milestone

From their first tooth to school graduations, capture every emotion-filled milestone with quality child portrait photography. Children’s portraits can keep them small in your hands forever, and they can serve as heirlooms to be treasured as they grow into adulthood to share with their families.

Child Photography Experience

The key to children’s photography and capturing their rambunctious spirits is to establish trusting relationships. My experience as a mother and a children’s photographer helps create a fun, comfortable, and welcoming environment that encourages your little ones to be themselves. Trust me— I got this.

A Trusted and Comfortable

A Photographer for Inclusivity & Celebrating Diversity

Children come from every type of family and with distinct needs. I bring the sensitivity and attention required to shine a light on the beautiful stories of all children. I understand and welcome neurodiversity, beautifully blended families, and families that are proudly part of the LGBTIQ+ community.

local families

What clients have shared about their experience.

“Our teens are growing up so fast so we wanted to get a set of really good family photos to capture this special time in our lives as a family. But when we booked Nell to take our pictures, I didn't realize how much fun we would have just doing the shoot itself! Nell put us all right at ease and was very patient with my autistic son. At the end of the day not only do I have an amazing photos that I will treasure forever that truly captures us as family, but I also will always have wonderful memories of the afternoon we spent together at our shoot.”

“I am so honored to have our family photos taken by Nell. She did such a wonderful job from the moment we got out the car till the very last photo. She was so patient with the kids and also with Kyle and I. I know with small children that can be difficult to do but she made it happen. She got some amazing photos that I will cherish for a very long time. Photos are so special to me so having these amazing shots are really a blessing.”

- Tiffany & Kyle L.

"My husband and I were so impressed with Nell and how she took care of us from the moment we contacted her. But what really blew us away is how she connected with our three kids. Nell found a way to connect with each one of them. We had an absolute blast together. These photos mean the world to us. Thank you for everything Nell. So glad we found you!!!"
