Hadley | Frederick MD Newborn Photographer

5 Weeks Old | Studio Newborn Session

If there ever was a baby full of smiles, it was Hadley! Even from the beginning, when she was awake, she was smiling.

Hadley was 5 weeks old when she visited the studio and she slept like a dream. I always tell parents that just because their baby is older, it does not mean we will not get beautiful images! Each baby is different and unique and knowing their signs and how to work with them, makes it possible for a great session no matter their age!

I absolutely adored Hadley in pink and loved her moms idea of adding in some mint. Such a perfect color combination.

Her cheeks and lips were just adorable. I adored her and her session!

Princess Session | Child Photographer Ellicott City MD

4 Year Old | Child Photography | Ellicott City MD 

After working with her twin little brothers for a year (see them HERE), her father’s and I decided that it was Alivia’s time to shine. What better way to feel special than to have a Princess Sessions! I provided the gowns and locations and we just had fun . . . truly. It was a blast!

We started off in my studio and then ventured outdoors. Alivia came alive in front of the camera and by the end of the session she told me she wanted to be a photographer when she grows up. My heart.

You could tell the moment she really started getting comfy in front of the camera . . .

We stumbled upon a cute little area that reminded me so much of The Secret Garden.

I can not begin to tell you how much fun we had on this photoshoot together. Capturing her 4 year old personality was such a joy!

When a session starts off with these faces frame after frame, I know I am in for a treat . . . and trust me, Nora did not disappoint.

Nora was VERY sleepy, which made for a very laid back session.

Her rolls and cheeks were absolutely adorable.

. . . and that lip. Can we talk about that lip! This may be one of my favorite images of all time.

Nora’s parents are good friends of mine and I just knew what awesome parents they would be. Their images just radiated love and pride for their new little girl.

When a client is looking for wall art, I always like to work closely with them to fit the designs and space of their walls. This family wanted art hanging going up their stairs, so we came up with this gorgeous custom wall grouping. These are hand made wooden blocks from the Netherlands and they are to die for!

Thank you to this very special family for allowing me to capture their precious girl. I look forward to watching her grow over the years.

Studio + Outdoor Maternity Shoot | Frederick MD Maternity Photography

Beautiful Mama | Pregnancy Photos

Maternity images are so special. They are a time to capture your changing body, honor those changes and think about the excitement of your impending baby. When we plan your maternity session, we provide you with hair and makeup and a selection of beautiful maternity gowns. It is a day to feel pampered and to have fun!

This mom-to-be is near and dear to my heart. I feel lucky to have watched her progress through her pregnancy.

I love when people incorporate things that make their session unique or special to them. There are two things that we knew right away had to be included in their shoot. 1- their gorgeous property. 2- their amazing dog, Sherman. He is the most well trained and sweet boy I have ever met.

So, of course, we made sure that Sherman had his role during the maternity shoot!

We couldn’t have asked for a better night. We had beautiful light, weather and subjects.

There is a reason they call this time of day the “golden hour”. You can’t beat the beauty that nature provides!

I was so flattered to be photographing this beautiful mom-to-be. I have known her for a couple of years and was so excited hear they were expecting. She glowed throughout her pregnancy and these images were just a reflection of her strength, beauty and love for her baby on the way.

Luca | Bethesda, MD Baby Photographer

6 Month Old | Bethesda, MD Photographer

Luca was back (see his 6 months session HERE)! His amazing head full of red hair has not wavered in its awesomeness.

Luca was so smily and full of silly faces and noises.

We made it outside for part of the shoot and Luca loved it. Such a snuggly guy!

A little peek-a-boo in the grass was a favorite.
