Natalie has a natural talent when it comes to capturing newborn baby imagery. I would never have known how much patience, time and effort that is put into posing, positioning and creating these works of art. Our images were beyond our expectations and every time i look at them, they bring tears of joy to my eyes. I am extremely happy i chose Natalie to capture this precious time for u. Natalie you are a beautiful person in and out who has a passion for what you do. You are truly a baby whisperer! Thank you so much for our gift of memories, we will cherish them forever.
