Miss Colette | Gaithersburg MD Baby Photographer

Sweet Baby Smiles | Infant Photos

You may remember Colette from HERE. She was born at 1lb, 11oz and spent over 100 days in the NICU. You would never know that now since she is as healthy and CUTE as can be.

She showed me her personality and her many expressions, which had us all laughing.

She was sitting up on her own like a champ and I was super impressed!

I look forward to how big she is next time I see her for her one year photoshoot!

A Dog and Her Humans | MD Family Photographer

Family and Dog Photo Session | Frederick, MD

I met Elsie and her family when she was just six weeks old (HERE) and saw her again when she was one (HERE). Now, she is two! The family wanted to incorporate their Weimaraner and (being the dog person that I am) I was happy to oblige.

Elsie has an amazing personality and definitely kept ME entertained the entire session.

She had a contagious smile and braved our chilly temperatures like a champ!

I am so excited to provide beautiful artwork of their family for them to hang in their home and enjoy for many years to come.

Evie is 3 | Better Bundle Up!

Cold Fall Morning Session | Arlington, VA Family Photographer 

Well, we no doubt had one of the coldest fall mornings. It was 22 degrees out and Evie just turned 3. Normally this would be a recipe for disaster, but we had rescheduled a few times already due to weather, so we decided to proceed and to move quickly!

It is true that about 10 minutes into the session I no longer could feel my fingertips click my camera shutter, but thankfully it was!

Evie was all about the cuddles to stay warm, which was perfect!

This family's been with me and not batted an eye when I moved studios (and had to have their newborn session in my home), when we have a session and it is 22 degrees out, or when they drive an hour to see me everytime. They are positive and happy . . . and I am SO lucky to have them as clients and friends. 

Knock Knock Jokes | Downtown Maryland Family Session

Family of Four in the Fall | Frederick Portrait Photographer

We had a very chilly night downtown capturing images of this family of four. Thankfully everyone stuck it out so we could squeeze in that last bit of fall portraits for the season.

For the past few years that I have been photographing Hunter, he always insists on some knock knock jokes to stay entertained. My personal favorite from this time around was . . .                      "knock, knock" . . . "who's there" . . . "cargo" . . . "cargo who" . . . "cargo beep beep".  That one was chosen by my own children so I knew it would be a hit! Big sis thankfully just humors me and my silly jokes.

Looking forward to next year and I will start accumulating my knock knock jokes now!

Nora + Charlotte | Bethesda Family Photographers

Safe In Mommy's Arms | Beautiful Fall Session

I get the pleasure of seeing this family at least once a year. Little Charlotte is still under her first-year package, so I get to see them three times! My Baby Plan includes three sessions in a year and this was their fall, 9-month session.

The truth is that baby Charlotte was not quite sure what to do with me this time around, but as long as she was in mom's arms, she was quite content. The answer was lots of snuggle images, which are my favorite anyway. 

9 month old and three year old

Nora on the other hand, was quite happy to be my best buddy and let that personality shine. I have been photographing her for almost 5 years now and she cracks me up every time I see her!

Since this blog post is a few months after the session, I have already had Charlottes cake smash and can not wait to show that very soon!
