Family Sessions

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.

Berman Family | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

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!

Silberzahn Family | Fells Point {Baltimore Family Photographer}

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.

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

Powis family-1336.jpg

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!

Youngblood Family Session | Baltimore, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

sneak peek-2340.jpg

I look forward to capturing this family each year.  I'll never forget the first time I met Jennifer at the pool with her two young girls.  We were both in the baby pool with our kids and she mentioned that she would often see me come into the pool with our four boys and thought I had it all together.  I laughed and reassured her that was not the case!  We have gotten to know one another better over the years as our older kids have been in school together.   

I love that the Youngblood's value these family images and put a lot of preparation into our session.  Jen and I sat poolside over the summer and brainstormed locations, outfits and ways to make the session fun for the girls.  Jason even stopped me one day in the gym to discuss locations.  We have been working together for the past few years so they know what to expect and trust that I will capture timeless images of their family.

LaGreca Family Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

fall_family_session_in_baltimore_maryland

The LaGreca family is so special to me for so many reasons.  They have been a part of our small group for over 10 years so we have experienced a lot of life together.  We have rejoiced, mourned, encouraged and spurred one another on over the years.  They also were the first family I captured with my camera (other than my own).  Jen believed in me way back when this business was a dream that I had yet to fully form in my mind.  Back when I knew little about the golden hour, prime lenses and f stops.  I love photographing them each year not only because I hope to capture lasting memories for them but it is also a visual reminder to me of how far I have come as a photographer.  These past few years I have worked hard to hone this craft and build my business into something that will best represent my "why" for taking pictures.  I want to help women capture those glimpses of what motherhood and marriage feel like...because if we're honest it isn't always pretty but deep down we know we love our husband and kids with a  passion beyond description and we all long to see glimpses of that in our photos.  

LaGreca's thank you so much for believing in me, and encouraging me.  I will be forever grateful!

Kelleher Family Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Family and Child Photographer}

Kelleher Fall Family Session-1459.jpg

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!
