Fairbanks, Alaska Portrait Photographer - Specializing in Newborn Photography

The way that light dances across her little nose. The simple beauty of her dark eyelashes resting against the top of her little cheeks when she takes a nap. The tiny fingers, the tiny toes. The way she fits perfectly in mommy's arms, and on daddy's shoulder. The overwhelming feeling that love at first sight does exist, when a mother meets her daughter. When the simple sweet new smell of a brand new baby's hair can make even the most rugged man melt into a puddle. She has him wrapped around her teeny, tiny finger. 


Time moves quickly. Babies grow faster than weeds in a garden. I am here to help you remember the beginning. The beginning that will never end.


Hello, I am Vanessa. I am a photographer, and I cannot wait to meet you, and share in the joy that a new member to your family brings. Let's stop time, together. 


The safety of your newborn is my number one priority. I am trained in newborn safety handling. I am fully vaccinated and boosted timely for the flu, covid-19, pertussis(whooping cough). Your newborn will never be put in an unsafe pose or position during your session. Airway position and protection is constantly observed, and baby is never more than an arm's reach away from myself or an assistant.

I am proud to own and operate a fully licensed business here in Fairbanks, Alaska. And I honestly, from the bottom of my heart, cannot wait to capture those sleepy, sweet newborn moments for you, and milestones all the way up to their first birthday. My heart flutters and I get butterflies before every session. This really is my passion and I hope I can share it with you.
