Helping Your Baby Reach Their Developmental Milestones
Around the age of four months, babies begin to reach for and grasp objects. This occurs when the baby’s eyes begin to focus and work together to gain depth perception.

Preparing for a Newborn Photo Session
One little secret that most people don’t know about me… I was a photographer for about eight years. I still enjoy taking photos but I no longer do it as a job.
