Houseknecht Family | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

I loved meeting this family! Jake contacted me after seeing the JMP ad in the latest issue of Towson Lifestyle . He and his wife Stefanie wanted to capture some fall photos of their family. They moved back to Baltimore from San Diego a little over a year ago to be closer to family.

We met on the Hampton Mansion Grounds in Towson, Maryland on a windy, cold day. It may have been cold but the fall colors were absolutely stunning as the sun set during our session. The girls were troopers. We took breaks to warm up in blankets/jackets before shooting some more. Enjoy a sneak peek into our lifestyle family session.

Youngblood Family | Wisteria Cottage and Barn

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to shoot some images of Wisteria Cottage and Barn for their website. I immediately fell in love with the property in Carroll County Maryland. The owners, Eric and Simone Heiland have spent so much time creating an incredible venue for your special day. I knew it would be perfect for a fall family session.

I have been working with the Youngblood family for years now and know they like unique locations…this was perfect for them. We met on a cold, windy morning taking multiple breaks to warm up but we are so thrilled with the end result. Enjoy scrolling through images from our time together.

The Berman’s love big and this was evident from the very beginning of our session. We explored the Hampton National Historic Site on a beautiful fall evening just as the sun was setting. I knew we were going to have fun when Jen and her daughter were laughing in the grass just a few seconds into our time together. Enjoy these photos from our adventure.

Kammar Family | Fells Point {Baltimore Family Photographer}

If you’ve been following along for a few years you have seen these boys grow up before your eyes! We have so much fun during our session together. Helen always comes with ideas of what she wants to capture that will tell their family story well and this year was no exception. She showed up to the session with a pink tug of war rope!

She is a fellow small business owner. Her business T & K specializes in women’s clothing and believe me when I say Helen lives her business motto “It’s your life, dress it up!”

Enjoy this glimpse into their session in Fells Point on a gray Sunday morning…this crew didn’t let the gray skies keep them from having fun!

I have been capturing this family for years now. I love that Jen is always looking for fun, new locations. Over the years we have met at local parks and last year we enjoyed a location by the water of Loch Raven Reservoir. This year we discussed meeting in Fells Point to allow the city to create a beautiful backdrop for their holiday images. We met one Saturday evening by the water in Baltimore, it had been cloudy all day but the sun broke through as we adventured around the city.

2 Year Old Milestone Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Milestone Photographer}

reter_2018-7512.jpg

This sweet boy has been a joy to capture over the years.  Owen's mom, Sarah has made it a priority to capture a milestone portrait session each year around his birthday.  We shot his newborn session at their home and then followed up with his 1 year session and cake smash at the beautiful Hampton Mansion Historical Site.  This year we met again at the Hampton Mansion and I have to say it was my favorite session of them all.  I left the session with confirmation that my favorite way to capture children is to allow them to play and interact with the ones they love.  Owen was hesitant and shy when they first arrived but it didn't take long to begin to see his personality shine.  It may have taken some tricks from my "mom of boys arsenal" but it was worth it!  

If you're interested in shooting a Milestone Session this fall contact me soon as my calendar is filling up quickly.  I'd love to help you capture images that will help you remember these childhood days that pass by so quickly.

Montgomery Motherhood Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Child Photographer}

Montgomery Motherhood Session-1689.jpg

Let me be the first to say I loved spending time with this mama and her kids!  We had to reschedule a few times due to ice cold temperatures and snow but it was worth the wait!  I have known Kelly since before these sweet kiddos were in her life.  I was always captivated by her beautiful smile and fun personality.  Her daughter, Charlotte greeted me at the door ready and excited for the session.  She introduced me to her baby brother Teddy and even showed me her big girl room.  Her personality is infectious as you'll see in the pictures.  And Teddy is the sweetest little guy.  I held him for a bit so I could capture some pictures of Kelly and Charlotte and let me just say...babies are the best.  We started the session inside their home and then took a walk around the block at the end of the session.  The weather was cool but the sun was shining and there were signs of spring all around.

Powis Motherhood Session | Lutherville, Maryland {Baltimore Child Photographer}

Do you remember this beautiful mama from her maternity session with me last fall?  Baby Marli arrived a few months ago and she is at the perfect age to capture some of those expressions and interactions that make this stage so fun.  One of my goals in capturing these Motherhood Sessions especially at Marli's age is to help her Mama get a glimpse that all of the effort and exhaustion is worth it!  We met at their home, the perfect place to ensure we get the most natural interactions from everyone.  Capturing the joy and interactions between these two truly made my day.  Be sure to scroll through to the end...Marli's daddy Palmer was home so I had him jump in for some pictures towards the end of the session.  

Contact me here if you would like to schedule your Motherhood Session.  This is a perfect gift for Mother's Day!

Gehman Family | Hunt Valley, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}...

We have walked through life with the Gehman family for the past 5 or so years.  Rob has coached our oldest in outdoor and indoor soccer.  He is the kind of coach you want in your kids life.  Over the years he has made an impact on his players...teaching them far more than the game of soccer. Our oldest boys have become close friends and we couldn't be more thankful.  Erin is one of those moms that exudes grace and beauty.  She laughs at me when I tell her it seems like she's got it all together because we both know the task before us isn't easy but she handles it with such ease and joy.  

But the thing that stands out to me the most about this family is the love Rob and Erin have for one another.  They continue to nurture their relationship all the while raising a busy family of 5.  Rob and Erin thank you...for your friendship and the opportunity to capture your beautiful family!

Powis Maternity Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Maternity Photographer}

"Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen."            ~E. B. White

There is nothing sweeter than capturing a couple at this incredible time of their marriage.  I was truly honored to shoot Palmer and Hannah Powis' maternity session a couple of weekends ago.  Their anticipation, wonderment and love for one another and this child was evident during this session.  They are high school sweethearts that met and got married in Utah.  They moved here to Baltimore for Palmer to play baseball.  Their baby girl has no idea how blessed she will be with these two as parents.  Palmer and Hannah I only spent a little over an hour with you but it was such a gift.  Thank you for trusting me to capture you as you become a family of 3.
