Emma has arrived!

Emma decided to go right to sleep after she was all warm and cozy in her wrap. And she certainly looked adorable in my new bucket that I painted.  In addition to Emma being placed securely into the bucket, her mom was sitting right next to her with both hands placed on her. At my […]

Nolan has arrived!

This handsome little fellow made excellent eye contact with me while I wrapped him in a swaddle.  Sometimes babies go right to sleep as soon as they are swaddled.  Nolan didn’t want to miss the action, so he stayed awake for awhile.  He yawned a few times too, so eventually it was nap time, and […]

Astrid has arrived!

This little sweetie was asleep most of her newborn session, so she made my job pretty easy.  Astrid also gave us a few smiles throughout her session, which I pretend is because she really loves newborn photography.  Why wouldn’t she? I do.  So check out this beautiful baby and her precious smiles. 🙂

Emma Is One Year Old!

Emma’s first birthday was on Saturday.  It’s hard to believe that it has already been one year since Christine and Mike had her newborn session in the studio.  Emma is sweet and liked to smile when I played “peek-a-boo.”  It was my first session since mid-March, when businesses closed in Maryland.  Distancing takes some getting […]

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 […]
