Many aspects of my life have led to a deep appreciation for motherhood in many forms. For you and the hard job you are doing every single day. I am a mother. I am a temporary mother through foster care with a loyal commitment to helping kids return home, which has given me the opportunity to walk alongside other mothers working to make a better life for their families. I am a forever mother through adoption and understand both the extreme joy and anxious weight the responsibility of raising a small human brings. I know how long the days can feel, but when I look back at photos I cherish, I realize how quickly time is moving. Scrolling my camera feed I realize that I'm missing from so many memories, aside from clumsy selfies, because I'm behind the camera. This has driven a passion to get moms in front of the camera so their children will have the gift of these memories for the rest of their lives. 


 I'm so glad you're here and can't wait to meet you! I'm a photographer in Lexington, Kentucky specializing in newborns and families. If stiff, posed photos are what you're looking for then you're in the wrong place. I have a fierce passion for documenting real family moments. The way a child looks at their grown up with joy-filled eyes, a mom warmly snuggling her baby in her arms, a dad turning his daughter upside down while she giggles, a mom and mommy walking hand-in-hand through their favorite park while their children pull them along. These are the little moments you'll want to look back and remember 30 years from now.

Let's make some memories together!

i'm Desarae.
