Welcoming Baby Number Four | Maryland Newborn Photography

I always love watching how new additions change the family dynamics. A new baby adds another unique personality to the mix, and even a tiny newborn has the power to make the family unit feel totally different – in a good way! It’s like adding another puzzle piece you didn’t even know was missing, making the picture even more beautiful than before. As a newborn and family photographer, it’s a joy to capture those changes from year to year as families grow and new members are added. 

We've been working with this family for years, and now they have another sweet new baby to welcome. I know this is not factual, but for some reason, it seems like I more commonly see three boys with a surprise baby girl as the fourth, but this family is the opposite. This handsome little man is happily welcomed by three big sisters and two loving parents. He is surrounded by so much love and snuggles!

For this newborn session, the family joined in on the fun! They all came to visit the studio, and his sisters were so cute in their white bows and matching dresses. They were all so loveable with the new baby in their own special ways. The older sister’s personalities really shined through during the session. I’d like to say that it all went smoothly and everyone cooperated, but as you can imagine with four kids under age 8 - things don’t always go as planned. There were plenty of shenanigans and laughter and trying to corral everyone, but it was a blast!

It sure takes a lot of coordinating for a family of six! But it is all so worth it to have these images documented for the family and the future. What a joy it is to have a boy added to the family! I am so honored that this family chose me to document their special life moments. I love seeing them as the years go by and look forward to watching all of them grow.

Welcome home, little guy!


Behind the Scenes: Hanging a Gallery Wall of Framed Portraits

Clients often come into the Maryland photography studio with a vision of how they would like to display their favorite images in their home. And others don't have any idea of how they'd like to display their images, and that's ok!  Design is part of our process. Some don't have a lot of wall space and prefer prints and albums to look through, some want a statement piece to admire in the nursery, and others envision a gallery wall of framed portraits lining the hall.  No matter what works best for you and your family, it is my job to help you figure it out and make it happen! Using my camera, I make sure to capture beautiful images of the special times in your life. But beyond that, it is my goal for each family that I photograph to truly love their portraits and take home a piece of art to display and enjoy daily. As I busy mom of little children I can relate to the 'craziness and chaos' of life.  Time is limited and those images you said you would get around to printing are still waiting, years later. That is why I make it a priority to work with each client to deliver a finished product for you and your children to enjoy right away. And if you order a gallery of frames, we will even hang it for you!

My personal favorite photographs of my children are the ones that I have printed and get to look at every day. Nothing beats actually holding, touching and looking at a printed image.

Want to see what I'm talking about?  Here are some behind the scenes images of a recent gallery wall that we created and installed for a client. We did the portrait taking and design but left the artwork hanging to the expert Meredith Forte, of Frame Avenue Design, for a smooth and easy installation.

This gallery wall of images is framed in a white natural barn wood. Their family of four is proudly displayed on the stairway, bringing memories and joy each and every time it is walked by.

This baby girl was so precious for her Maryland studio photography session with her family.  I photographed her big brother as a newborn, through his first year, and with Mom's recent maternity session for baby girl as well. It was so special to see him now as a big brother!  It's always an honor to watch families grow and capture their milestone moments in life. My job is to help you look at these pictures and feel like you’re back in that moment in time.   This beautiful portrait session features muted tones and my favorite soft colors. I especially love the newborn portraits with pink flowers for this Springtime baby girl.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from this sweet session. Scroll to the end to see some of the beautiful artwork they will display in their home!

Maryland Newborn Photography Studio Session with the G Family

We have been so busy with newborns at our Maryland newborn photography studio lately and loving every minute of it!  I wanted to share a few of the adorable images from this recent newborn session. Look how sweet this new baby is! I especially love the ones with her big sister.  You can see how much they look alike. Sessions like these are ones that make me remember how lucky I am to do this everyday. We kept her session very neutral in colors of whites and grays. Neutral colors ensure that your images will be timeless and blend seamlessly into any room you choose to display them in.

My favorite part about this session is that we were able to capture a variety of images, from sibling to family, sleeping to awake, and even a cute newborn yawn.  Newborn sessions are so amazing to hold onto because they grow up so fast.  They will have these images displayed in their home for years to come and enjoy walking by them and smiling at them everyday.

Scroll to the end to see a cell phone image of their stunning 20x30 bloom frame.  I had to hang it on the studio wall to take photo of it before they picked it up!

An Adorable Watch Me Grow 6 Month Session for Beau!

We loved photographing baby Beau and his cuteness at his six month baby session in the studio. Big sister made a guest appearance so we could capture a few pictures of the two of them together. Their coordinated outfits are ridiculously adorable! Beau is part of our Watch Me Grow baby plan and we can't wait to see him in another six months for his one year smash session. Enjoy a few of our favorite images!
