Maryland Maternity Photos | Stephanie and Family

There are few things more beautiful than an expectant mother. Sure, our bodies change dramatically in the span of nine months to where we can sometimes hardly recognize ourselves…but it’s such an amazing gift to be able to grow a child.  I love taking maternity photos to document that special moment in the life of a family.

This beautiful, precious family is excitedly anticipating the arrival of their next family member.  Readers might recognize the vibrant red-headed sister-to-be, Priscilla, from previous family sessions.  I was so glad I was able to capture this next chapter in this wonderful family’s life.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session.


Capitol Hill Newborn Photography | Baby Mary Helen

The first few weeks with a new baby are amazing and exhausting all at once. Everything is a “first” for baby…and often for you, too! You’re just getting acquainted with this brand-new person. I love newborn sessions because they are a little snapshot of this once-in-a-lifetime moment. Before you know it, that newborn is looking less “new” and growing into a bigger baby…toddler…preschooler…and it’s easy to forget those early, busy days.

I recently photographed a precious little girl–Mary Helen–and her beautiful parents in their Capitol Hill home together as a new family.  I must say, I’m a bit partial to the name Mary Helen since it’s a combination of my name and my mom’s name.  A good choice if I must say so myself!

Here are a few of my favorites from this sweet newborn session.

Maryland Newborn Photography | Baby Jack

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of taking some of the first photos of little baby Jack. While he was long expected, he decided to make his appearance a few weeks early…which I’m sure was a bit of a surprise for his parents. Nonetheless, they were of course overjoyed to meet him, and I loved taking a few photos of them all as a new family.

Here are a just a few favorites from this newborn session. Welcome to the world baby Jack!

Brooklyn Family Photography | Julian’s Family

It seems like not too long ago, and I was photographing Lauren and Ian’s beautiful backyard wedding. But time flies when you’re busy with kids!  Lauren and Ian have a sweet little boy of their own now, and I recently got to photograph him in their home in Brooklyn, NYC.  It was so fun to catch up with them and to meet baby Julian. That first year of babyhood goes by so quickly (and yet so slowly at times!), so it was a privilege to capture these fleeting moments in their life together as a family.

Here are a few of my favorites from this documentary family session.


Purebudget - The best family photographs should not have any outside distractions to them. The easiest way to ensure that the frame filled with family. This will be the center of attention to the faces of family members..

Milla - Mary, wonderful job! Seriously! I haven’t checked my reader in ages but just opened it up and saw this amazing session. You captured some incredible, creative moments (my favorite it #6!). Great job, friend!

Lindsay - These are great pictures of this adorable family!
