Modern Baby Photography is excited to announce the 2012 baby plan.

The ‘Baby Plan’ includes FIVE sessions all the way from birth to the first birthday! Every mother knows how quickly time passes by when you have a little one. My daughter is three years old and I still feel like she was born ‘just a few weeks ago’. The first year is such a special time, they grow up so quick and learn so many new things. It really seems like they discover something new every single day. One day your getting excited because your little one looked up and smiled at you and the next your excited because they discovered how fun it is to roll over, or crawl, to start to babble in their own little language, to walk and run. It all happens so quickly and it’s such a beautiful thing to capture in photographs.


Running my own photography business has been such a big dream of mine, and thanks to all of my beautiful clients I have had one pretty amazing year. As a little thank you, I went through this years sessions and picked out 12 images, one for each month.

Happy Holidays!


I had the pleasure of meeting Missy last time I got my hair done at Face the Day spa here in Ocala. She recently learned how to do hair extensions and told me about this contest she recently entered called the ‘Great Length Challenge’.

I came in to do some photos by her and LOVED her hair and makeup, she did such an amazing job and I hope she wins! (hair done by missy and makeup done by Jackie Ramputi)

Here are some from that session, loved the way they came out.

I’m sure many of you are excited about the holidays, I know I am!

I grew up in germany and pretty much every winter was a winter wonderland filled with beautiful snow days, sledding, making cookies and spending countless hours outside playing in the snow. Now that I’m in florida it’s a little bit different. Most days are still in the high 70′s, I think today it was in the 80′s, the closest we get to ice are the popsicles we enjoy outside and most holiday cards that are being send out are of us enjoying the warm weather at the beach.

Who can complain right?!

I wanted to do something fun for my daughter and the kids that are are in central florida. Since we don’t get snow here Modern Baby Photography has teamed up with SnoWonder to do a fun themed wintery photo session with SNOW!

The kids can dress up in their cutest winter outfits, wear hats, gloves etc and get some adorable photos done while playing in the snow!

(Not my image: Here is a sample of an artificial snow photoshoot)

Cost: $90.00

Location: TBA

Date: One saturday in early December

There will be 5 session slots available. If your interested in booking a session for your child please email me at to reserve your spot ASAP.

Here is a little preview of what I have in mind:
