My clients tell me they never thought it was possible to get quality portraits of their kids. They say "my kids are too active", "its too stressful to figure out what to bring, wear, and getting myself ready" or "I don't know for certain that my newborn will sleep through a session"
The fact is you don't have to worry about those things. Imagine if instead you could just let me do it for you; the kids outfits (hello client closet!) professional makeup, a session centered around the kids so that we keep them engaged, and a trained professional who has been photographing babies for five years.
Hi, I'm Goldie and I help families preserve the details of their children so that they can relive those days over and over. As a mom myself I've seen how fast the days go by and how the value of those moments only grows exponentially. The cliche that "times flies by" never felt super relevant until my son was born but man is it true. Now I get to create beautiful art that captures those moments and I can't wait to do the same for your family.
I was the kid who spent hours flipping through old photo albums and sifting through the shoe boxes of loose prints. I was always brining my mom a photo and asking who was in the photo, which would inevitably lead to stories. Photos gave me the opportunity to get to know family that was no longer with us, but still played an important role in our family.
I am certified in newborn safety and posing. I have been voted Best Photographer of St Joseph for 2020, 2021, 2023, and picked favorite for 2022.
My birth name is Mattie and I changed it to Goldie when I turned 18!
We have a mini farm and live on an old camp ground! Wood cabins and everything. We basically live outside.
My husband and I would highly recommend Goldie for any of your photography needs - especially maternity and newborn. I was hesitant to book with a professional photographer at first only because I was nervous of the cost - especially with getting ready to welcome our first baby into the world. Goldie was very understanding and never once pushed. She helped us come up with a plan that worked for us and our needs…
Seeing our photos in professional print is like seeing them in a whole new light and I now understand the incredible value of it. I promise you it's worth it… Go for it - you WON'T regret it.
