My clients come to me from all over Los Angeles, and beyond, because they are looking for something a little bit different. Perhaps you are, too?

I create natural maternity & newborn portraits with a minimalist aesthetic.

No unnatural posing, props, or costumes. Just the quiet perfection of you and your baby.

Kind Words

We booked Ariel for our twins' newborn photo shoot and she was awesome every step of the way! From our initial emails and phone conversation to the day of the photo shoot to dropping off our framed pieces, she was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with! The photo shoot itself was really fun. She kept everything very relaxed and was super patient with our newborn babies.
We had loved her photography style based on her instagram and website, and our photos came out beautifully and even better than expected!

As a new mother I couldn't find anyone to take the newborn photographs I was envisioning...

I photograph pregnancy, newborns, and families, and love to help my clients document and celebrate their families in all seasons of life.

I live with my husband and two kids in Northeast LA, but originally hale from Nantucket, MA. I believe a dip in the ocean cures what ails you and will always choose Twizzlers over Red Vines. I am a member of the NAPCP, PPA, and am certified in Newborn Safety with the APNPI.

When my son was born in 2013, I wanted to hire a newborn photographer, but couldn't find anyone who created the type of newborn portraits - simple, natural & timeless - that I was envisioning. I took my son's newborn portraits myself and, in the process, fell in love with newborn photography. Over the intervening years I've photographed countless newborns and developed a signature aesthetic that incorporates natural posing & minimal styling to create the timeless images my clients are yearning for.
