Ellicott City |Newborn Studio Session |Connor

If you have an older baby, you know that once they started to crawl or walk, that it was over. No more staying in one spot. This makes relaxing with a baby, a thing of the past, and you’ve now entered the “I can’t get anything done” phase. All eyes must be on this precious […]

3 Tips for soothing a newborn like a photographer mother

I have three babies that walk and talk. They’re not really babies anymore. I first fell in love with babies, in general, when my cousins were born. I signed up for my first babysitting certification class when I was a pre-teen. I made my own special babysitting kit to take to my first “job” for […]

A Valentine’s Day Present

Sometimes the best gift arrives right around a holiday. When we did these newborn portraits we included a tiny felted heart in some of the photos. It wasn’t until I was editing the gallery that I remembered that a heart was perfect for the timing of this little one’s arrival. I’m sure Valentine’s Day will […]

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. 🙂

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 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 […]
