Beautiful portraits of amazing kids are my all time favorite photography genre! I love photographing so many different groups, from beautiful portraits to maternity to newborns to children and families, and I also love senior photos so much! But if pressed to say what subject I’d love to photograph most I’d have to say I love photographing dolled up gorgeous portraits of kids. Maybe it’s because inside I’m a kid myself, and I’ve always loved dresses, makeup, styled hair and flowers. Maybe it’s because I love flowers and nature and love to showcase the beauty of both humanity and nature by juxtaposing them together. Maybe it’s because I love the beautiful portraits of my daughter who spends hours playing dress up and asks me to photograph her in her pretty outfits (and a son who complies and is agreeable every time I ask for him to be in front of my camera).

Either way this type of photography always makes me giddy as it’s so youthful and fun, and everyone is excited to be there and happy. Some of my favorite recent photos of these beauties were done while I visited the amazing Sandra Bianco photography in Florida. She is one of my favorite photographers for this genre and does it flawlessly. It was a blast meeting her (and the other amazing women there) and I loved photographing these beautiful models. I followed that adventure up with some pretty photos of my own baby girl back in Maryland, as I wanted to make sure I photographed her before she outgrew her silk green dress she loved so much. I know photographing your own kids comes with it’s share of joys and hurdles, but she makes it pretty easy on me with her enthusiasm. I’m so proud to be her mom and watch her grow into such a wonderful child! Enjoy these sneak peeks of these beautiful girls!

Baby boy G is growing up so quickly! When I first met him he was a tiny newborn baby boy in my studio, and it feels like I blinked and was here to photograph him at 7 months old in his beautiful home. He has grown into a handsome and happy little cherub, and even though he would have much preferred to be napping instead of having his photos taken this day, he was still as cute as can be. He gave me the best expressions – some of joy and some of silliness, and others looked more like total concern for what on earth I was doing sticking the camera in his face over and over. He has the greatest mommies who smother him in kisses and hugs and love and it’s just such a joy to see them all together. I love the 7 month old stage because they’re sitting up (which leads to awesome posing with playing with little toes, smiling, laughing, and playing with toys) but are still solidly little babies so they’re still tiny and adorable. I cant wait until his 1 year session when I get to see him again! Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful family!

Seeing my work published will never get old! I love photographing families of all little girls because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m the oldest of three sisters myself. These sweet kids were full of laughter and happiness, and were so kind to eachother. I photographed them for a cover story on Ijamsville Living magazine and these turned out so adorable. I have loved meeting these local Frederick Maryland families as the magazine features a new family each month. This goes to show me how amazing our local Frederick community is, as each family has welcomed me into their’s temporarily, and allows me to photograph them spending time together which is always a blast. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful family!

I love photographing families, and when my subjects are people I have photographed before I love it even more. Watching families grow – seeing anniversary photos turn into maternity photos turn into newborn photos turn into sibling newborn photos – it’s just the greatest experience watching life unfold in front of your eyes. We met up this session for a summertime evening at the beautiful Glenview Mansion in Rockville, and it was a perfect day for the boys. They ran and played, tickled and laughed, and even got in some spinning with mom and dad. This family is so full of love, joy and happiness, it’s always an honor to photograph them together. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful family!
