Candid Classics

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.

Authentic interactions and genuine expressions made this a fun fall session for everyone involved.  This past spring I donated a mini session to my son's school auction and Jenn, the Education Director at the school won the session.  Chris, Jenn, Landon and Parks thank you for coming to play...you all were a blast to photograph!

Abram's Milestone Session | Western Maryland {Maryland Milestone Photographer}

Abram turns One-0853.jpg

Someone is just a little excited to celebrate his First Birthday this weekend!  Milestone Sessions are a great way to capture your little one at a specific stage.  We all know they change so quickly in those first few years.  I like to allow the child time to explore and play for these sessions.  This ensures that the images we capture are true to who they are at that specific slice in time.  Abram was fun and very expressive as we played together.  His mother Kasandra, did a phenomenal job of choosing their outfits.  They brought out the rich warm tones of fall.   She also brought this chair along that she was photographed in as a young child.  This session was a gift from his grandparents.  Enjoy this collection of images from my session with Abram and Kasandra.

Sweet Harper Rose Christmas 2016

“What was wonderful about childhood is that anything in it was a wonder. It was not merely a world full of miracles; it was a miraculous world.”
G.K. Chesterton

We were able to spend some time sweet Harper over Thanksgiving.  We had a blast running after her as she explored.  I was struck once again by why I love photographing kids...their unending sense of wonder!

  My boys helped me at different times during our adventure.  In fact Joshua got the most authentic smiles and praise from Harper by pretending he was running into the door of the train station.  Well she is a part of our family and we're kind of known for our ability to make people laugh! 

Silberzahn Family | Towson Maryland

It has been a joy photographing this family over the past few years. The kids have grown so much since last year and know what to expect from a session.  We had fun chasing the light and using a special Furby to make the kids laugh and keep things interesting.   This year we met at the Hampton Mansion just after the fall leaves fell.

Shaw Family | Lutherville Maryland

"You can't live the Christian life without a band of Christian friends, without a family of believers in which you find a place."  ~Timothy Keller

I am so thankful that we are walking through life with the Shaws.  Their encouragement, love and laughter have been a blessing.  They are a family that loves deeply and that love extends beyond their family into the lives of others.

Horvath Family Session | Baltimore, MD

I love it when a family contacts me with a vision of how to capture their kids doing the things that bring them life.  Friends, those pictures of everyone smiling, looking at the camera are great but the candid moments are the ones you will treasure years down the road. 

We met at the Horvath home on a beautiful fall day for a family session that included a trip to their neighbors farm.  We let the kids explore taking pictures along the way, giving them a break when they needed all the while trying to capture those in between moments we all love.

Thank you Peg and Andy for trusting me with your family session!  Enjoy!
