Zara turns one year

It is always an honor to photograph a newborn and then see her back in the studio one year later to celebrate her first birthday.  This little cutie was all grown up from when I last saw her.  She’s walking, and full of adorable little expressions. One of my favorites is of her with her […]

Maternity Session

As freezing cold as it was on this December afternoon, Iglesia looks amazing!  She knew how to pose herself independently, so I didn’t have to say much about how she should stand.  Do we have ourselves a model here?  Her sweet daughter, Nova, wore a matching dress and they looked perfect in the golden grass […]

Nicolas Turns 1!

The “Wild One” theme all came together nicely.  Nicolas looked the part for this jungle scene in which he is surrounded.  His mom did a great job finding the perfect outfit and cake for this one year cake smash.  As with many babies, Nicolas wasn’t sure about his cake at first, but once he felt […]

Matthias Turns 2!

This sweet little guy walked into the studio like a professional.  I last saw him for his one year old cake smash, so you may recognize him from my website galleries. His 2nd birthday party theme that his parents designed for him was a Mexican Fiesta.  So for his two year old photos, he was […]

The Plemons Family – Zailee turns 1

The Plemons Family is new to Maryland and what is impressive is that Tessa (mom) managed to move halfway across the U.S. a few weeks ago, and still schedule a family portrait session in time for her daughter, Zailee’s, first birthday.  Way to go mom!  I’m so happy that I could be a part of […]

James turns 2

James recently turned two and during his family photo session, he may have been thinking, “Do you like my collection of sticks? I am adding as many as I can hold.”  Two years old, means being on your feet and super busy for most toddlers.  And this means that moms and dads are busy moving […]

The “W” Family and daughter’s first year milestone at the Howard County Conservancy

This Sunday morning I got to start my day with this adorable family at the Howard County Conservancy.  This is one of my favorite locations for photo sessions because there is so much variety in the landscape and structures.  Alyssa and Zach recently celebrated their baby girl’s 1st birthday. So, it was a special time […]

Sunflower Mini Sessions

Nature. My peaceful serenity.  Beautiful summer sky and rows of giant sunflowers gazing over the countryside.  This is how I would describe The Sunflower Garden in Westminster, Maryland.  What I love about this magical place is how I’m transformed and feel closer to the heavens when I’m here.  When I first visited last summer, it […]

Point. Set. Match. For you tennis lovers, like this baby girl’s dad…this post is for you.  She is super cute getting ready for her GAME.  First SERVE was an ACE.  We had a RALLY going, keeping her happy.  She served us some nice smiles and put a SPIN on a few tennis balls.  After the first […]

Miss Molly is a new friend of mine and a long time friend of my sister, Kerry (I’m talking nearly 8 months).  😉  Molly and her big sister, Lucy, visited me with their mom, Sarah, yesterday for a photo session.  I first met Lucy when she was around the same age as Molly, and now […]
