Hello from your friendly neighborhood light and airy photographer! Usually my blog is a place for clients (past and potential!) to check out my work! Today, however, I’m writing a post for other photographers. See, this past weekend, a dream of mine was realized – my husband built me an LED light wall in my […]

The Howard County Conservancy – My Go-To Photo Spot We are well into what most newborn photographers are sure is the Covid baby boom (finally!) but I’m also knee deep in my newborns from last summer turning the big O-N-E!

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 […]

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 love these people. I have photographed this family almost from it’s inception – from Liz and Brandon’s maternity session while pregnant with Renley, to Renley’s newborn photos and her cake smash session, then to welcome their second daughter, Ava, with her newborn photos and now her one year session. Not only do I adore […]

My cake smash sessions, while many, appear to be few because I haven’t blogged as many of them as I’ve photographed. So today I’m working to remedy that because I want moms and dads to see how cute they are and start dreaming of scheduling one for their little prince or princess. Cake smash sessions […]
