I have been dreaming about shooting a foggy photo session. Something about fog is sooo dreamy and idyllic. Every foggy morning, I wish I had a client on tap – or someone pregnant or with a baby – that I could call and say, “Meet me at xyz place!!” Short term notice like that doesn’t […]

Ready to see some sweet Howard County Conservancy photos? It’s about time for this location to start being a presence on my website! I used to say that family photos were not my wheelhouse and I typically passed on any family session inquiry I received. I specialize in birth, maternity, newborn, and first year milestone […]

Sitter sessions are my favorite. (Okay, I have lots of favorites, don’t go taking me literally – my other blogs will contradict me.) Sitter sessions really are ones that I look forward to for a bunch of reasons, the highlight of which is no stranger danger here! So…what do I like about baby sitter sessions? […]

Some of you know me and many of you don’t. Those of you who do know me probably know that homeschooling is something that caught my interest early on in my motherhood journey. It was always a topic that intrigued me but very definitely was not anything I ever had aspirations to do. I know […]

Is your baby not quite sitting independently at 6 months? That’s okay! Not every baby does things on the pediatrician’s timeline but with a 6-9 month baby photography session, you can feel reassured that you’ll still get the adorable sitter shots you were hoping for without worrying that baby isn’t quite ready at that six […]

Oh, beautiful Hope. This was my second time photographing this darling, spunky little girl for her two year milestone session. I met Hope and her parents in June of 2018 when I did her one year photos. She started that session a little apprehensive and unsure of the stranger who was clicking a black box […]

Ravens fans, look out! I met the cutest and youngest Redskins fan the other day and he stole my heart!! One of my favorite ages to capture, after the newborn stage, is little ones aged 6 months to one year. Regardless of what team they root for, I will always happily aim my camera at […]

Ahhh, this family. How special they are to me. They are part of a network of close-knit friends, many of whom have come to me for photos, and the support I have received from Sarah is just mind-blowing. Plus she is basically the world’s sweetest, most easy-to-get-along-with person who is always going out of her […]

Mommy and Me sessions are so special and important. I’ve been on a soapbox lately about how important it is to get Moms in the frame. So often, mom is the one behind the camera and never in the picture and, one day, the kiddos are going to look back and wonder if mom ever […]
