The Silfee Family Maternity Session

I had the pleasure of working with this sweet family again in preparation for their new bundle of joy who will be arriving this April.  Fortunately, we had the session three weeks ago, before life was going to change for everyone. The term, social distancing, has become part of daily conversation.  This was my final […]

Sydney is One!

Sydney is one year old!  And what they say is true; the first year goes by so fast.  It seems like it wasn’t long ago that she was a newborn in my studio.  Sydney totally went along with her first birthday portrait session. I think she only tried to crawl away (escape) 😉 a few […]

Gelila’s Newborn Session

Gelila has arrived! She was wide awake during much of her session, but she did take a few little naps here and there, giving us a nice combination of sleepy and wide-eyed photos. Even when she was awake, she remained quietly content, just looking around.  It was so sweet seeing her big sister give her […]

Armando Daniel’s Newborn Session

Armando Daniel is here! I was so thrilled to meet this little Ar”man”do, as his dad calls him.  Armando gave me good eye contact and some fun newborn facial expressions, but fell sound asleep after being swaddled.  Newborns love a nice, cozy swaddle.  Being only one week old, he easily curled up for poses too.  […]

Connor Aiden’s Newborn Session

Connor Aiden has arrived!  He decided to make his appearance a little early, so this blog post is published on his due date.  Lucky for him, Connor has two big siblings to look up to.  This photo session was a joy, not only because every baby is so precious, but also because he was content […]

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 […]
