From Bumps to Giggles: Cherishing Your Family's Milestones

Capturing the glow of your pregnancy, the first days with your newborn, and the laughter of family life shouldn’t be just another task on your to-do list. I’m here to make it easy, enjoyable, and totally stress-free. With over 20 years of specializing in newborn, maternity, and family photography, I focus on the details so you can focus on living these precious moments.

Forever Starts Now: Capturing Your Stories

Capturing your family’s moments goes beyond just taking pictures—it’s about holding onto your unique story for generations. Each photo celebrates where you are right now and cherishes these days, turning fleeting moments into memories that last forever.

Hi, I’m Giliane, the heart behind Giliane E Mansfeldt Photography. 

Imagine a photography experience where every click of the camera tells your story. That’s what I do. I believe in the beauty of simplicity and the power of storytelling. For over twenty years, I’ve been capturing the essence of every moment, big and small, with a touch of minimalist elegance. When I’m not behind my camera, I might be out enjoying a local coffee or on a trail, but what I really love is getting to know you. From our first chat to capturing your family’s unique moments, I’m all about creating memories that feel true to who you are. I adore working with newborns, always ensuring their comfort and safety, and I’m passionate about photographing the real, unscripted instances of life. 

Ready to create some beautiful memories? Feel free to reach out to me!  I can’t wait to hear from you!

This is our second newborn photo session with Giliane, and we loved both the photos and experience. Giliane goes above and beyond to make sure the photos reflect what you want and has such creative ideas and so many cute props to choose from. We highly recommend booking Giliane for your next photoshoot!
