I have a few working relationships with select commercial product designers that create beautiful items for children, parents and babies, and these linen dresses from Teal & Finch are so beautiful. I photographed her in this gorgeous dress outside my studio so that she could model this dress perfectly. I search the boutiques, internet and stores constantly for the best dresses and items to include for sessions for families (and have started making style boards for families who request that!) and it’s been so nice having this amazing company to turn to for beautiful clothing.

I love linen, as it’s so natural and organic and lends itself perfectly to my photographic style. She loved twirling and dancing around in her dress, and I loved the details from the sleeve ribbons to the back buttons. This was a perfect dress for the autumn months in Maryland when the weather dips from warm to cool. I love neutral colors in photosession clothing because it keeps the focus on the subjects, and this tan linen is so natural and perfect. I have a full wardrobe on display in my studio that is available for families to use for their sessions, and this is an awesome product to include. I cant wait for a little girl to choose this sometime soon! Enjoy these sneak peeks of these cute product studio photos!

This gorgeous family met up on a spectacular fall day with bright colorful outfits to make one of my favorite photosessions this year. Their navy and bright pink blended perfectly with the green grass and warm fall colors and the location we picked was perfect. Our location had a great sunset, has a cool boardwalk area and amazing rustic field grasses plus a beautiful fence line and stunning mountain views. The sunset filtered through the mountain perfectly and gave us these amazing backlit images and warm rays of sun to run around in and play. Their three kids wer SO well behaved and happy, gave me a mix of perfect smiles and great eye contact but also loved to do the fun candid images I love so much. They are all so beautiful and adorable and their colorful outfits totally fit their fun and youthful personalities.

I love Maryland fields in the fall – the grass gets so breezy and beautiful and the trees light up with color. We photographed each combination of every child with both parents, as well as siblings together and mom and dad in some together alone. Those can sometimes be my favorite since mom and dads rarely get to have their photo taken just the two of them anymore. This family is so beautiful and kind and lovely I was so happy I was able to photograph them together and show their love for each other. So excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

This fall has been my all time favorite season ever photographing families I think, because we had the longest fall foliage peak that I can recall, and I got to spend it with amazing families like this one! This family was definitely one of my most fun sessions all year – I was laughing the entire time. They had the best outfits, the coolest style, and did not stop laughing together. Their love was truly genuine, their smiles totally real, and their laughs infectious. They were up for all the crazy ideas I had (lay here, go in there, jump over that fence, dont fall in the pond…) and I had so much fun with them all. Little brother here was the same age as my own son so I totally got him and his humor and his personality. Big sister is so beautiful and sweet and loved having her photos taken all over the grounds. I loved capturing some amazing photos of just mom and dad (those were some of my favorite!) and they did an amazing job in all the images. This family in particular really rocked their candid images as well. This session was one of my biggest galleries ever with 200 images in color and black and white! When you’re this beautiful and fun and easy to pose that happens!

We met up at one of my favorite locations in the fall which is just beautiful at sunset, has a cool boardwalk area and amazing rustic field grasses plus a beautiful fence line and stunning mountain views. The sunset filtered through the mountain perfectly and gave us these amazing backlit images. So excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

This sunset photosession was one of my favorites this year! About 5 years ago I came across a local photographer’s website and figured out somehow that she lived in my neighborhood! Like a total weirdo I sent her an email and told her that we should basically be friends. Luckily she likes weirdos because we have since become close friends and confidants and also an awesome workout coach! This photography industry could be very isolating without people like her in my life, and I am so thankful to her for her friendship, advice and camaraderie over the years. A side bonus is that we often meet up to take eachother’s photos and I treasure the photos she’s taken for my family over the years. I love seeing her kids grow up and seeing the love they have for eachother together. This year her oldest child was hilarious and gave me a million outtakes that kept me laughing throughout the fall busy season. This crew is the real deal and I loved photographing them this fall.

We met up at one of my favorite locations which is just beautiful at sunset, and has the best views of Sugarloaf Mountain in the background. The sunset filtered through the trees perfectly and gave us these amazing backlit images. It wouldnt be a photographer’s family session without some golden hour glow! So excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

This incredible family came to my downtown Frederick studio for their new baby boy’s newborn photo session, which made me super excited since I photographed big brother during his baby plan two years ago. I love photographing my baby plan families since I really get to know them over the year, and get to watch their families grow up in front of my camera is the best.

This sweetpea was picture perfect in every way – a total doll when I posed him in different props and set ups, and flashing me several smiles throughout the morning. I kept the session with mostly neutral tones which are my favorite, and added in touches of blue and tan to coordinate. He had the most beautiful lashes and lips, and looks so much like his mama. Big brother was as cute as can be too, with the most gorgeous hair and sweetest smile, and loved holding his baby brother and being tickled by his mamas. This amazing family was so patient and loving with both kids, and has made being parents to two young kiddos seem like a breeze.

I loved doing individual set ups with both moms, and capturing different light and angles and poses both in formal portraits and also candid lifestyle type images. I used a mix of natural light and studio lights and wanted to give them a blend of vibes for their family images as well as individual images with their new sweet baby boy. They were all just so perfect together and I loved photographing them as a new family of 4 and also just sweet baby G solo. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this amazing family and their newborn precious boy!
