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!

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

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}

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.

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.

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

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.

Hewitt Extended Family Session | River Valley Ranch
Hewitt Extended Family Session-8094.jpg
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." Aaron Siskind

This session was one for the books.  I absolutely love when people give a session as a gift to a loved one.  I have known Jon and Courtney Bisset for many years and was excited to have the opportunity to capture her extended family, the Hewitt's.  Courtney and her siblings, Lindsey and Greg wanted a unique gift for their mom, Heidi.  Jon is the Executive Director of River Valley Ranch so we met on a quiet Sunday and utilized the amazing property as a backdrop for the session.  The Ranch is a special place for the Hewitt family.  Years ago they created a beautiful memorial to their late husband/father/grandfather near the quiet stream in the center of the ranch.  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to see this space.

It was a joy to meet Owen a couple of weeks ago to get a head start celebrating his first birthday!  Remember this adorable little guy at 6 months?  I love the opportunity to photograph a baby several times over their first year because they change so fast!  We ended this photo session with a cake smash...I think it's safe to say he enjoyed his cake!

Happy 1st Birthday Owen!!

LaGreca Family Spring Session | Towson, Maryland

We met Russ and Jen 12 years ago when we joined their small group.  Over those years we have walked through many ups and downs of life together.  I am so thankful for their friendship and encouragement.  They have witnessed my journey in creativity and encouraged me way before I believed in myself.  I was so excited to meet them on a warm spring-like day this past weekend for a fun family session.    They did not want to miss capturing their youngest son's toothless smile...

Spring sessions are booking quickly.  Contact me if you're interested in scheduling a session.
