About Me

Hi!  I’m Jamie, owner of Brand New Baby!

Does anyone really read the ‘About Me’ page?! lol! Well if you’re here, read on!

Here I am with my own little babe!

I began photographing newborns in the spring of 2012 and WOW has it been amazing!  I loved photography before that but had never really found my “niche”.  After the very first newborn, I was hooked, to say the least!  I’ve ALWAYS loved babies so I’m not really sure why it took me so long to put my love of photography and my love of babies together.  On top of that, I’ve always been a huge Anne Geddes fan so how could I not see it?  HA!  I guess things just happen right when they are supposed to!  So I started taking every class I could find, building my portfolio and studio and striving every day to learn or try something new.  Boy, have I learned a lot!  You wouldn’t think there would be SO MUCH to this business, but there is!   Since then, I’ve grown to photographing hundreds of babies (and their Mommies) from newborn to 1 year.  I absolutely LOVE what I do!  It kinda makes me giggle when I say I’m going to “work”.  While, yes, it actually IS work, it’s just so rewarding that it really doesn’t FEEL like this could actually be my job.  I have been blessed beyond measure to be able to meet and get to know all of the wonderful families that I have!  Each and every baby is unique and I get the pleasure to cuddle them, play with them and capture this time in their lives!  One day their Great-Grandchildren will look back on one of my photos and smile, and that truly is why I do what I do.

Much love!
