It’s THAT time!! WOO HOO! My favorite time of year!  Weekend dates are filling fast, so if you don’t already have your date on the calendar, email me now:) If you don’t already know, I am  no longer shooting out of the Elkridge studio. Honestly, I’m LOVING on-location sessions. I have been all over Maryland […]

Sweet baby Ava was the most adorable little thing ever. Wide eyes, creamy skin and so expressive.    

Earlier this month, we had a solid day of back to back babies at the Carroll County studio. And when I say babies…… I mean two sets of twins, two sisters(including a newborn) AND a set of brothers. In one day. Let’s just say, although I had a blast…… Calgon needed to take me away […]

I recently began working with small business owners to help create images that can showcase their products on a professional level. Beautiful images that showcase a product is obviously imperative to any marketing plan. It’s no different than a photographer’s portfolio. You want and need to show your best representation of what you are selling;) When […]

Two weeks new Mason and his gorgeous parents came to see me recently in the Westminster studio. We are still getting around to taking photos of the new place but I am LOVING shooting here! This tiny fella was absolutely perfect for his entire session. Not a single peep out of him! Slept like an […]

It’s no secret that Maryland attracts many temporary residents. I joke with my clients all the time, that the majority of them aren’t born and raised Marylanders. Instead, they are a nice combination of military and medical families. Sadly, those families usually don’t stay in Maryland for good:(  (insert crying face). I first met this […]

I first met Zach’s family several years ago when I photographed big brother Drew for his first birthday. I am fairly sure his adorable face still graces an image in my portfolio. You know….. that adorable smiling boy, with colorful Federal Hill displayed in the background. I was super excited when his mama contacted to […]

Everly was absolutely amazing for her entire newborn session. session. She gave us the complete gamut of expressions and slept like an angel at 3 weeks new. newborn portrait studios in Maryland and DC  

For many photographers, it seems to be the trend to ignore your blog through the crazy fall months and come back with a vengeance in January. There’s just something about January 1st that gets your brain working again. Like a fresh start. I’m no exception. We had an insanely busy fall season, on both a […]

Make it Convenient 1. If you’re nursing, you’re good to go as your food source is attached to you. However for those moms bottle feeding, prepare several bottles in advance and consider keeping a cooler next to your bed. A bottle warmer on your nightstand will make it even easier. I love the Boon Orb because it […]

This sweet little fella has the best cheeks EVER.    Perfectly alert but gave us great sleepy images also. Loved this little boy and his adorable parents.

Several months of waiting and it’s finally sinking in that we will be moving soon. 32 days till closing! To say we are excited would be an understatement. We went to visit our new neighbors and check out the house  and it’s coming along beautifully. Better than I could have imagined. They installed the porch spindles, painted, added the white […]

These Poppy Tree Frames are by far my favorite way to display prints yet. I have a box full of the classic frames ready to hang all over our new house when we move next month.  I recently fell across the Strata line and I am head over heels and will be adding these to the collection. […]

I can’t believe this little guy is turning ONE!!!! If you have visited me in the past year, you have seen the cube with his adorable newborn session. If you’re looking for a good baker in the Elkridge, Ellicott City or Columbia area (super close to the studio)… check out Delightful Indulgence! I see a […]

To say I loved miss Emma’s newborn session would be a total understatement. Not a peep out of this little princess. Simply divine.

Many of you already know that we are building a new home in Taneytown Maryland. Every time I tell someone that, the first reaction I get is “Taneytown? Where is that?!”—- I think that’s why I like it;) It seems like very few people know where it is which means it’s perfect for our family. […]

And there ya have it. We have officially lost our minds.  Five kids 10 and under, two cats, a full time portrait studio….and a puppy? Ever heard of the saying, “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart”— that completely sums it up. Our hearts are full seeing these kids smile […]

Today’s Featured Mama is one of my biggest inspirations.  Not only does she run a highly successful business, but she manages to do it while raising FIVE kids. With a smile on her face.  I have never come across someone with such a positive attitude about life and balancing it all. If you haven’t checked out her website or magazine, you may […]

It’s been quiet here on the blog, but certainly not quiet at the studio. What a crazy fun spring and summer we have had so far! Easily the busiest in 7 years and I couldn’t be any more grateful. I have met so many new families, and had just as many come back with new […]

I spend my days putting babies to sleep so I have learned a thing or two over the years. It dawned on me today that many new parents don’t know the power of white noise. Sure, you can get the sound from that cute little giraffe. Your baby swing likely plays a pretty tune to get your baby to […]

I first met this family 3 years ago at my first studio, and have enjoyed watching them grow through Facebook:) Marina was an absolutely beautiful baby girl so I just knew her little sister would be just as stunning! She sure was. Introducing Stella and her sweet big sister Marina….

What a perfect way to start an insanely busy week. Hugo was such a doll for his newborn photo session this morning in this studio. I can’t count how many times he smiled for me! He even smiled wide awake! I offered to let him stay all day so I could photograph him;) I’m sure […]

We had a very busy weekend here at the studio! Four families and all so fun to work with! The last baby this weekend was stunning 6 month old Kensington. She smiled when I first met her, but it didn’t take us long to realize, my usual “peek-a-boo’s” weren’t going to work with this little […]

This year so far,  I have been fortunate enough to have many many beautiful mothers in the studio wishing to capture their pregnant body. It’s such a fleeting time… a perfect time to pamper yourself and spend the morning preserving it with photographs of your baby bump. One of the best parts of the maternity […]
