Every year in the beginning of Fall I try to carve some time out before my busy season hits, to photograph my own two kiddos in a wildflower field. The idea of ‘photographer’s child syndrome’ where the kids HATE the camera hasnt really taken hold in our home – probably because I dont photograph them too often. When I do it’s usually in some beautiful spot in nature – by the ocean, in the cherry blossoms, amongst the fall foliage, or like these photos in a gorgeous wildflower field. These flowers were stunning and were calling to me to photograph for a few weeks when I finally found the perfect sunset and a day when my kids werent in an activity, and we headed over to the beautiful field. These two love eachother so much and are so kind to eachother – they really are the other’s best friend. I am so lucky to have two kids who are obsessed with eachother the way they are, and I love that I was able to capture them happy together in such a pretty spot. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this gorgeous field of wildflowers and my two lovelies.

I love photographing friends of ours – both because obviously it’s nice to spend time together but also because there is a level of comfort when the kids are used to being around their photographer. This family are just the best – super sweet and loving, funny and laid back – they are everything you’d want in a family photosession. We met up in downtown Frederick to take some new family photos for them, and we had a blast wandering around the brick sidewalks and baker park. The girls are so genuine and beautiful, and loved being together and having fun during our session. We ended at sunset just as the sun dipped behind the lake and the trees, and we captured the prettiest light. I love downtown Frederick sessions because of the mix of old and new. The colorful bold doors and gates bring so much color into the photos no matter what the season, and the old brick sidewalks and iron gates bring a measure of vintage into each session. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this awesome Maryland family!

Sweet newborn baby boy J was just adorable for his newborn studio session! I’ve photographed his big sisters since they were infants so I was so excited to do his newborn session as well. His mama brought along some adorable props and his big sisters were absolutely perfect for their sibling photos and family images. Sibling images are always the most difficult to compose since you’re dealing with lots of little ones and a new baby, but these three were just perfection.  They were SO excited to have a new baby brother and it shows in their images.  Photographing this little newborn boy was so awesome as he seemed so content the entire time. His sweet little face was so adorable and his cute personality is already showing.  Enjoy the sneak peeks of this beautiful newborn baby boy!

My favorite maternity sessions are ones that dip into those last rays of sunshine at the end of the day, and incorporate a loving happy couple with stunning elements of nature. This perfect session incorporated all of these elements and more, and I laughed the entire time with these two. They were game for anything – from lying down in tall grass (next to some deer ‘droppings’) to holding hands and cuddling together trying to pretend there werent roosters clucking nearby…they were so natural together it made every image stunning. The light was so beautiful as well – diffused right through the forest and softly hitting the grasses as the sun set. These two are going to make the greatest parents and I cant wait to meet and photograph their newborn baby soon! Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful couple!

Sometimes you get a maternity session where the stars align, and the images turn out to be beyond breathtaking. This was one of those sessions – the dress, the glowing mama, the excited daddy, the weather, the sky, the lake…everything was perfect. This stunning image is a peek at their beautiful session. I love everything about water and love when I get to incorporate it into a session. This was such a gorgeous session – and their sweet baby who I met a few weeks later was the icing on the cake! Enjoy this sneak peek of this beautiful mama!
