LittleFoto Studio


My studio is my happy, my heart, my home – my favorite place to be when I’m not chasing my own babies around! Here is a little glimpse into my world!



DESIGNING THE STUDIOLittleFoto

I have dreamed of designing my own newborn photography studio since I first started out in this industry. My vision has always been mixed, as I love elements from all different design styles. I am drawn to the simplicity of neutral colors and earthly textures, but I love the emotions strong vibrant colors create. I love white, everything white, everywhere. White is beautiful. But also kindaaaaa boring. I love the way bright colors create happiness and the way pastels emulate relaxation. I love nature, birch, moss, all knotted wood and organic looking props. I am overly obsessed with succulents and plants – but can’t even keep fake ones alive 🤷‍♀️ I love vintage, really old stuff, antiques – things with history and a story behind it. But I also adore new, modern fixtures, leather & fur, and pops of creative architecture. I love dreamcatchers and anything free, flowy and artistic.  So you see – I  literally could not be more all over the place when it comes to making studio design decisions that will work together. It was a REALLY huge challenge for me. BUT the one thing I have known for sure forever – is that LittleFoto Studio would be barn-inspired and everything else would fall into place once I found the perfect barn home to build this dream from.

The moment I set my eyes on our now home on Village Road, perfectly set next to a gorgeous barn – I knew this was what we had been waiting forever for. In fact, I so completely fell in love with the property – we were signing papers to purchase it only hours after it was listed for sale and before my husband had even seen it 😂 Fast forward 1 year later later and I can not believe our lives ever existed before we lived here. My family and children have grown and blossomed beyond measure in our new home as has my photography business.  

Prior to LittleFoto Studio, the barn was used to roast coffee beans for Brewbakers coffee shop in downtown Keene (if you haven’t been there, go, because yum!) I love that the history of the space was originally part of another local business’s journey! 

Having a studio next to my home was very important to me – I struggle being away from my babies, so I wanted to be able to keep them as close as possible when photographing other people’s babies! For that same reason, I am no longer offering in-home newborn sessions (except for Welcome Baby lifestyle sessions!) Because of that – a large percentage of my clients are now traveling to me from far distances with their new babies from all over the map, so it was very important to me to create an amazing gorgeous welcoming space for all of my clients to be able to travel to me. My business has flourished, and my craft has tremendously evolved since I have had such a positive creative space to grow in.

Project turn the barn into a studio was a super major one – smack in the middle of moving into our forever home, traveling completely across the country with our entire family (3 kiddos!), and under the time crunch of being in my third trimester waiting for baby boy Winnie to arrive while also raising our one year old (just picture me, 9 months pregnant, standing on a ladder hand painting bricks on the studio wall for 7 hours straight) A lot of thanks go out to some really great people who this would not have been possible without – mainly my husband, both for his amazingly hard work and TIME and for dealing with my stress during this whole process (and supporting my million dollar Hobby Lobby trips) Thank you to Mike Dowell and Garrett Chamberlain (Residential Unlimited) for being great at their jobs, and to Jim Hollenskm for going absolutely above and beyond to bring me the best heat possible for my newborn clients. And as always, thank you to my best friend Carmen, for being there for me on all my crazy adventures in every way possible!

Thank you, to all of you, for filling my heart up and making all my dreams come true!

Here is a fun little before/after picture of the creation of LittleFoto Studio!


DIRECTIONS coming from downtown Keene NH: The studio address is 113 Village Road in Surry, NH! PLEASE be sure to put this exact address into your GPS before the day of your session and be sure it directs you correctly if you are planning to use one. Although the directions are very straightforward and simple, google maps has been occasionally mis-directing. You will go up Court Street to the very end, and at 711 take the first exit at the roundabout onto West Surry Road (Rt 12A) You will follow this road past Surry Mountain Beach, and past the Surry Fire Dept until you get to Crain Road on the right (about 7 minutes after 711) At the end of Crain Rd, take a right onto Village Rd. The studio is about 1/4 mile down Village Road directly after the blue house on the right (it is the house with the awesome playground and the white mailbox that says LittleFoto on it!) The studio is outside of my home in the red barn with white french doors. Please feel free to pull up and park right up next to the barn! Note: your gps may try to take you to Pond Road which is not longer accessible to get to village road. It may also try to direct you towards Surry Dam.
