Every month the local Ijamsville Living magazine features a local family on the cover, and I am the happy photographer who captures them in photos for the issue! I love being published by this fantastic local magazine, and getting to meet all these great families. Most of the time we head to their backyard to catch them in their most comfortable surroundings, and showcase a bit of their life. Other times we’ll head to a local park or field to get them into a beautiful surrounding. Either way these sessions are quick and fun, and I love meeting new families each month. Recently they featured this lovely family who just had their fourth baby boy, and they were SO well behaved for the session!! This family was just perfect for their photos, and the big brothers all loved taking their turns being in front of my camera. I loved meeting them – check out the magazine if you’re local to Frederick for some more info!

I love everything there is to love about the beach. The noise of the waves, the aqua color of the ocean, the expanse of sky, and all the peachy sand and seashells are just some of my favorite parts. The ocean has always spoken to me, and I feel happiest when sitting beside the water. I have found that many of my clients feel the same, and have begun offering limited sessions in Jupiter Florida and surrounding Palm Beach. There is something special about the way the light falls there, and it’s beautiful at both morning and evening light. Some people prefer the light on the West coast since you catch sunset over the water, but while that is a beautiful sight I think the softness of the colors on the East Coast lend itself perfectly to sunset beach sessions here too. Recently I had the privilege of photographing my beautiful sister and her family, and it was really a spectacularly beautiful night. Their outfits were perfectly coordinated to the weather, and the beach was so cool with the sandy outcropping of ocean rocks to stand around and play in. This awesome group became total troopers as I marched them up and down the beach looking for the perfect angle and clouds. At one point the wave came up a bit farther than we anticipated and the bottoms of Jurgen’s pants got soaked. A quick cuff of the pants and the images became even more relaxed and beachy. These people are always so genuine and amazing – love them so much! Enjoy these sneak peeks of this awesome Florida beach session!

Lovely newborn baby girl Paloma was so perfect and sweet for her newborn session! This family came to my studio from the Washington DC area and I had the most peaceful and serene time photographing them together. This mama was simply stunning and so so in love with her darling new baby girl. New daddy here absolutely melted my heart as I witnessed one of the sweetest moments ever to occur at my studio – he teared up while having his photos taken holding his new baby. All of my dads I photograph are amazing, but I’ve never seen a daddy be so overcome with emotion while holding his new daughter…it was really such an amazing moment to witness. There’s not much that can compare to the awe of holding your brand new baby! Baby girl looked so sweet and beautiful in the ivory and pink fabric and props we used – and so precious in the little headbands her mama brought!  My favorite part of the session was seeing her wide eyes open and looking right at me – wondering what on earth is going on? She drifted in between being awake and sleeping, which was perfect for our session since we were able to photograph both sweet moments. Her eyes were so vivid and alert, and I loved all of her tiny delicate facial features from the cute button nose to her beautiful soft pink cheeks.  This was such a sweet and loving family to photograph together and I loved every image from our session. Enjoy the sneak peeks of this beautiful baby girl and her amazing parents!

I was so excited when one of my favorite families to photograph in Frederick contacted me to set up Spring family photos for their extended group of relatives. We originally planned on doing a cherry blossom session but unfortunately the blossom season was filled with frigid temps and cold rain and wind. This family had a brand new baby who I photographed as a newborn only a few months before, so I knew trying to hold a session outdoors during early spring could be tricky. As the weather remained cold this Spring we decided instead to move our session to May and pick up the sunny warmer weather we’d hope to find there. Ironically May too became very cool and rainy, but we happened to luck out with absolutely GORGEOUS weather on our planned date, and ended up having the most beautiful sunshine and warmth for their extended family session after all. We met up at the lovely Distillery Lane Ciderworks apple orchard, which was the perfect place to photograph these amazing grandparents, sons, and their beautiful families together. I have been photographing big sister M since she was a baby, so it was so fun to see her so happy with her grandparents and parents and cousin(and sister!) The kids ran up and down the apple tree rows, pointing out bees and flower blossoms and even stopping to pet a farm doggy or two. They let the sunshine stream across their hair and laid little picnics out on handmade quilted blankets. Sometimes extended family sessions can be a bit overwhelming with the amount of people to organize, but this crew was authentically full of joy and happiness together so it made it fun! Photographing their lovely family was truly wonderful. Enjoy these sneak peeks of these awesome families!

Sweet baby girl Scarlett was such a joy for her newborn session!  This family traveled to my studio from Arlington, VA  and even brought new big-sister Ellie and their adorable black lab pup to photograph with baby girl Scarlett.  This beautiful mama and I have been friends since college and I’ve been honored to photograph their engagement session, maternity session and newborn session with their first daughter.  This made it all the more exciting for me to photograph them now together as a family of 4 now with their newborn.  Sweet baby girl Scarlett looked so beautiful in the cream and pink fabric we used – as well of course the color scarlett!  I even captured the most amazing moment – a huge smile while looking straight at me!  This almost never happens with babies this young, as the first awake smiles begin to occur after the first or second month, but this little sweetpea was all smiles for me. Her big sister was so adoring and maternal with her new baby sister, giving her kisses and hugs and touching her tiny nose and fingers one by one.  Their black lab pub Lincoln was so good for his role too. He was so tender and kind with his tiny pals, and just wanted to be near everyone. Big sister Ellie is growing into such a beautiful grown up toddler, and told me all about her friends and her outfit and especially all about her new baby sister. She was so proud of her – it was amazingly adorable to watch. This family is so precious to me and I’ve loved watching them grow into the family they are now.  Enjoy the sneak peeks of this beautiful baby girl!
