Maryland Newborn Photography | Baby Rhys

Spring is truly here with lovely blooms, fresh green leaves on the trees, and birds serenading in the morning.  I think it must be a nice time to have a baby–the weather is just getting warm enough to take walks without having to be completely bundled up

And speaking of new babies, I photographed Rhys back in March with his big brother Cole and parents.  I love newborn sessions like this–the older sibling(s) make for fun and unpredictable interactions. Here are a few favorites from this Cheverly, Maryland newborn session.

DC Baby Photography | Will is Nine Months

Well so much for an early spring! The cherry blossoms are only now coming out. We got a teaser back in February for baby Will’s nine month photo session. It’s hard to believe these photos were from a month ago! Since we were assuming the weather would be cold, we scheduled the session for inside the National Museum of Art in D.C., but with the sun shining and the air warm, we found a great spot outside for more pictures.

Here are a few favorites from Will’s portrait session. I love his grin! It’s been fun capturing his first year, and I can’t believe the next time I see him he’ll be a year!


Cherry Blossoms…Already??

Yes! It’s the first of March, and they’re already predicting the peak bloom for the cherry blossom around the Tidal Basin here in D.C.  This mild winter is shaping up to welcome an early spring!

So, with cherry blossoms, that means the return of Cherry Blossom Mini-Sessions! If possible I think I love the look of the cherry blossoms maybe just a tiny bit more than colorful fall foliage. Or maybe it’s just that it coincides with spring (or in this case “spring”), and I’m always ready to be done with winter.

When will the blossoms be reaching peak bloom? The forecast calls for March 14th-17th. So, to be safe, I’m scheduling this year’s mini-sessions on Saturday, March 18th. This could change if they somehow seem like they’ll be out even earlier…but hopefully we’ll still have blooms on the 18th.

And, since I have found those early morning light sessions to be especially lovely, I’m starting the sessions at 7:30am. I know getting kids out of the door super early is no easy thing, but perhaps you’re a couple and consider yourselves morning people? I promise that early morning light won’t disappoint!

Contact me today to reserve your session!

Amanda - Did you do it this weekend? It was freezing so I’m just wondering if you moved it and had any open slots

Marisa - Hello,

Do you have any sessions left for March 18? Please let me know, thanks!


NYC Baby Photography | Baby Rinnah

Hello dear neglected blog of mine. It’s been a busy past few months! Fall came with its usual jump in family photo sessions (which I love), and then the holidays hit with the fun, family, and friends that we all so enjoy.

And well, there’s a been a few other things going on, too.  Come this June, Jay and I are expecting to welcome another sweet little one of our own into our family. Harriet is very excited to be getting a sister…and Frederick just has no clue!  All that to say, I’ve been pretty busy the last few months.

Now I’m looking forward to spring and some great family and newborn (not to mention Cherry Blossom) sessions coming up.  In the meantime, I wanted to share a few photos from this New York City baby session for some dear friends of ours. We recently traveled to the Big Apple where I took a few photos of baby Rinnah–whose arrival was long awaited and hoped for. She is so loved.

Also, the hat mishap has got to be one of my favorite photos…ha, it’s a completely real moment.
