Newborn, Maternity, & Boudoir 


Creating Your Very Own Time Capsule


Hi There, I’m Ciera

Virginia born and raised. I am an RVA Photographer (and surrounding areas). We are currently building on our dream property in Fluvanna County. After a couple years of moving for his job we finally made our way back home where we are thrilled to be near our family and friends again. We now have two beautiful children that are the absolute joy of our lives, Taelyn  and Miller, with a third on the way. Family life is what fuels my soul and there is no better place to be than sharing memories with loved ones. After my family, photography and my business are my next love. I have always dabbled in a variety of arts until I finally landed on my love for photography and capturing special moments for others to enjoy for a lifetime. I've developed a passion for providing a Luxury Boudoir Experience for my clients and loving on and getting to capture the sweet memories of your Newborn in those first few weeks.

When I’m not behind the camera you can absolutely find me with my family and close friends, gathered around a bon fire or dinner table, spending our summer weekends on the boat, and enjoying our time outside!

Maternity Session

What an exciting time in your life! If you are taking a peek at this page, I assume you are expecting a sweet little baby soon! CONGRATS! Maternity sessions are my ABSOLUTE favorite. There is so much joy and anticipation about bringing a new life to your family. I would absolutely LOVE to capture this special time for you and your family.

Ideally, prior to your newborn session we will have done a maternity session together! This will give us the opportunity to get to know each other prior to the arrival of your sweet little one. Newborn sessions can be done in your home as In Home Lifestyle Sessions, In Studio Wrap/Combo, or In Home Wrap/Lifestyle Combo. When we chat during booking and prior to your session we will discuss choosing locations within your home that will be best for lighting and posing.

Lux Boudoir Session

The Boudoir Experience should be a fun, comfortable, and empowering moment for you. These sessions are for ALL women and you deserve to treat yourself to one.

Your experience will start with virtual outfit consultations and questionnaires that help me better understand your insecurities (we all have them), your body type, and your vision for the session. This process will also help us to better know each other and build a relationship of comfortability. Be on the lookout for some surprises in your mailbox!

“I was so in awe of Ciera’s work for our maternity shoot. I couldn’t have asked for more perfect photos!”


In the everyday chaos that we call life we sometimes take a step back and remember that this won’t last forever. The diapers, the sleepless nights, the honeymoon, the laughter, the friends, the graduations. The Phases. Photographs that you can look back on decades from now and not only remember but feel again those phases, those moments in time that seemed like they would never end. This is the ultimate photography goal.
