About Me

“Someday when the pages of my life close, I know that you will be one of its most beautiful chapters.” - Unknown

Hi, there!! I'm Victoria, a birth enthusiast & baby obsessed mom of two. 

Motherhood is the most rewarding thing a woman will experience in her lifetime. My two children have brought me more joy than I ever imagined to be possible. From the moment they were born, they have taught me to slow down and what it means to love unconditionally. Motherhood is certainly not glamorous, but it is beautiful.

The way my daughter throws herself forward, mouth wide open when she belly laughs. The way my son lines up all his superheros and animal figurines on his train table. These are the moments I don’t want to forget. These moments deserve to be captured just as much as (if not more than) a picture of them in front of a backdrop with a not-so natural smile.

After scrolling through my collection of professional photos I’ve had taken of my kids, I noticed something was missing. There were no images of them laughing, playing, or having much fun at all. I knew I wanted to be able to look back in thirty, forty, fifty years at quality pictures and see what REAL life looked like for my kids.

I picked up a camera in July 2017, determined to document my kids’ childhood with a realistic, lifestyle approach. After a few months of practice, I decided I wanted to help other families capture these priceless moments, as well. Documenting my clients’ journeys through motherhood has brought me so much joy. From pregnancy through childhood, it makes my mama heart so happy to watch them start families and continue to grow.
