I’m sitting here feeling blessed by my job as a newborn photographer. A lot of people I know wouldn’t choose “blessed” as the adjective they’d use to describe their job but what I do fills me up in so many ways. Because my cup overflows, I thought it was time to sit down and enumerate […]

Cake smash details – who knew they were so important?? I was looking through my blog offerings on what I’ve posted about cake smashes…and realizing that, although I feel like I do one every week, that’s not represented in what I’ve published. So I’m on this big push now to put out all the cake […]

Cake smashes are a big part of my business – obviously. I just came off of a weekend of three cake smashes and *every* cake smash is different. That’s what I love about them. Sometimes photographing the same thing could get a little boring (ie headshots, for example – yep, dabbled in that for a […]

Why is it that just when you feel like things are under control and you can take a breath, everything falls crazy again and you’re scrambling to catch back up!?! I feel like I had my entire life in order about a month ago – blogs pre-written, editing queue *manageable*, everyone alive and semi-happy – […]

Get ready for a pink poofy dress. I was excited about Maria’s senior session from the very beginning….even though I tried to turn it down (yes, yes I did – can you imagine if my busy calendar prevented me from meeting this amazing young woman and her precious momma??)!! Arhy, Maria’s mom, started her inquiry […]

The last time I did a Font Hill Park Maternity session was about 3 years ago and I have NO IDEA why I haven’t been back in all this time. I absolutely *love* *it* there and I pray there are many more Font Hill Park maternity sessions in my future (please, God). When I’m consulting […]

I have been wanting to shoot a session in Old Town Alexandria for a while now. There’s this alleyway (let’s call it the Alexandria, VA, alleyway, shall we?) that I see all my wedding photographer friends utilize and I started dreaming about shooting a session there. I wasn’t sure what kind of session it would […]

I adore doing maternity pictures at the Shrine of St Anthony. This spot is special for so many reasons. There are tons of locations on the property to choose from, the architecture is amazing, the lighting is perfect morning and evening and it really is one of my favorite places to shoot. Maternity pictures at […]

When one works with little ones, the way I do, one learns that things aren’t always going to go as planned. When I’m scheduling a cake smash, I know enough about the littles to bargain that an evening session is probably too late for cake. I take this into consideration when offering session times because […]

One of my absolute favorite locations is the site of Hannah and Will’s beach maternity session. The vibe you get from the sand and the water and the beach grass is unlike any other. I knew I wanted a couple to model this location because it’s a place that I want to shoot over and […]
