Newborn baby girl photography session at the Rockville Maryland studio!

This is baby number three for this sweet family and I could not have been more honored to photograph another beautiful baby miracle for them!  I decided to keep this newborn baby girl photography session simple, clean and white. These are my absolute favorites and we have been doing a lot of white color tones at the studio lately.  The focus is always all about the baby and the colors do not distract from other pieces in the home when displayed.  I always enjoy working with props and cute accessories, but they are not always needed to create beautiful newborn portraits. I have so many images of this newborn baby girl that I love! Below are a few of my favorites. I can’t wait to watch this little one grow and be so adored by her family and older siblings! xo

To book a session, contact me via email or phone. I would be honored to welcome you into our Rockville, Maryland studio to meet you and your family. To find out more information and reserve your due date on our studio calendar, please get in touch!

Hand-painted Photography Backdrop for Portrait Sessions at Danielle Sara Photography

Here are the final results of my very first hand-painted photography backdrop in action!

I do not consider myself someone who can paint or draw (stick figures are my go-to!). But painting is something I have been wanting to try as a different creative outlet.  With a little encouragement, tips, and inspiration from fellow photographer friends, I gave this a shot. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and took a risk knowing it could end up a complete disaster. I’m pretty happy with the results, even if it’s not perfect, definitely not straight, a lot of paint was wasted, and my 20 month old daughter was not a very cooperative model!  Maybe I’ll even paint another one 🙂

This backdrop will be available to use with all future sessions at the studio and will definitely be making an appearance again during Cherry Blossom season next Spring!

 

 

 

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.

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!

Green Splatter Paint First Birthday Cake Smash Session!

We had so much fun with Dylan in the studio for his first birthday session!  I photographed both him and his brother since they were newborns (so we had to sneak a few pictures in of big brother too). It's been so special watching them grow! His mom wanted the color green for his portraits and I love the unique way it turned out. Dylan absolutely smashed his cake and loved every minute of it, as you can see by his head first dive into the cake.  Check out the short behind the scenes video at the end of the post for a little preview of him smashing into his first birthday cake! first birthday
