Have you seen the big announcement for 2017? I am over-the-moon excited to offer a Newborn Photography Mentoring Workshop near Baltimore featuring both 1:1 and small group settings!  This is something I have always dreamed of doing since I love to teach others how to safely and professionally hold, move, and pose these precious and tiny newborn babies that we are given the chance to capture in their very few days on this earth.  I feel it was an essential part of my learning to have both a group mentoring session with Kelly Brown while she was visiting NYC all the way from Australia and then even more beneficial was my 1:1 mentoring with Erin Tole in 2014 where I was able to have a ton of hands-on posing, guidance and awesome tricks that made it all click into place for me.  Yes, it was a big investment, but without those two mentoring sessions (with some of the very best, internationally recognized newborn photographers in the world), I truly do not feel I would have been voted into the BEST of the BEST.  You can click here to see that post!

To be among the best, you have to LEARN from the best!  Do not settle for a mentor who specializes in weddings to teach you the fine skills necessary when it comes to the true art of newborn photography because trust me when I say, it’s a wholllleeeeeeee new ball-game and it’s also unlike any other type of photography out there.  

This is what I specialize in.

This is what I adore.

This is what I am passionate about –newborn photography and teaching others who are committed to growth and ready to truly take it to the next level in their business!

As a Frederick Newborn Baby Photographer, I am just in love with my new studio in the heart of Downtown Frederick!  The huge, sunlit, and open space has set my brain on fire imagining all of the possibilities for workshops, group mentoring, and 1:1 learning opportunities in 2017.  So so so so excited to share my passion for newborn photography with my local Central Maryland people (Columbia, Baltimore, Towson, Anne Arundel County, Bethesda, Rockville, Ellicott City and beyond!). I have been patiently waiting to taking photos to post here until I can get it -somewhat- organized as I just moved in last month and with the holidays and the new year, things just got crazy as I am sure all of us can relate to!

 

On top of that, I am just soooo bad at blogging and keeping on top of all of these beautiful babies I am grateful to have the chance to snuggle with, even for a few hours in their first few days earth-side 🙂 You know how they say the smell of a newborn baby is more addictive than drugs?  It’s completely true!  I love holding these tiny (or in the case of Nolan, not so tiny!) new lives in my hands and gently posing them into comfortable positions while mama and papa sit right next to me and watch with adoration and pure love.  Makes me get all teary-eyed just thinking about all the amazing memories I am providing for a lifetime through each family that I touch with this passion of newborn photography.   EEEEEK I get so happy just typing this out! <3333

I bet you came here for some adorable newborn squish though, amiright?  Without further blabbing, meet Nolan who was one of the best sleepers I’ve ever met!

 

Just look at that beautiful baby boy counting sheep all wrapped up in his slumber!

Mama loved baby blue so of course we just had to incorporate these into his Frederick Newborn Baby Photography session in Maryland!

But just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – meet RYAN!  This 2 year old is packed with so much sweetness, patience, and adorable for his little/big new brother that I just can’t put into words how much I enjoyed getting to meet him and listen to him talk about his “baby bruh-ver No-win”  thats “baby brother Nolan” for those of you who aren’t trained in toddler-speak 😉  Just look at him, seriously!  I threatened to steal him, more than once – and I wasn’t even kidding!

When Amanda contacted me early on in her pregnancy and asked me to capture her first baby, I was beyond thrilled.  See, when another photographer chooses ME to create lifetime memories for her newest little member, it puts an extra beat in my heart and it’s SUCH an honor! We talked about her style as well as the decor in her home and she decided she wanted more of an in-home lifestyle type session as opposed to more posed newborn images.   I was excited since I always love to challenge myself with new light, new unfamiliar settings  and the sense of togetherness that comes with doing a lifestyle session in your own home surrounded by the most comfortable and near to your heart places.  Think about how much time you spend in these familiar and well-loved rooms of your family home and how amazing it will be to look back at these images, long after the decor has changed, the crib is packed away, and you no longer need 4,329 onesies 🙂  A lifestyle newborn session is the PERFECT way to create memories of your space right now, in this very moment and keep them forever new in your mind.  So without further adieu, I want to share a beautiful family using Lifestyle Newborn Photography near Maple Lawn featuring Lucas !

As you can see, we started out with the posed images and then moved into some lifestyle/relaxed memories around the home.  Now, let me just tell you that EVERY SINGLE BABY I have ever photographed (100+) has had a completely different temperament and there is no way of knowing beforehand how it’s gonna go down.  Lucas, sweet Lucas was the most relaxed baby I have ever met!  He never once cried, he was so sleepy that we were able to move him from one pose/outfit to the next without waking him (this also has to do with picking an experienced photographer as well as following the prep instruction that I have made available before your session!)  and we finished the session in under 2 hours!   That was epically amazing and as you can see, we got some timeless and amazing moments and all of his little tiny features to be remember and smiled every single day <3

Amanda and Miguel are SO smitten with their beautiful new baby.  Can you see the joy and adoration on their faces?  Trust me, it was easily seen and felt <3parents with baby boy on bed lifestyle newborn

My favorite from out whole session!  The love, the squish, the foot in the chin and that smile!  LOVE LOVE LOVE mama and baby shots – I insist on them each and every time!mother and newborn baby in front of window curled up baby

I liked to call these types of images “gently-guided” but  definitely not posed.  I just like to sit back, and watch the love unfold and seriously, just look at how relaxed Lucas is!  Calm and relaxed parents make calm and relaxed babies!family newborn session in home on bed with baby boy relaxed

Into the nursery for a few more lifestyle images, we go!  While I know mama is also a professional photographer, I also know that these first days move SO fast and it’s so important to capture his tiny little nursery just as it is, before it’s over-taken by toddler toys!

When I was asked to capture the first days of baby Oscar’s days on earth and it turned out to be not only one but TWO gorgeous women for a mama, of course I was super excited to jump on-board! What I didn’t know at the time was that I had gone to high school with one of the mama’s (Tracey) and they would be my very first same-sex couple during a Frederick Newborn Photography Session!  Two Moms are better than one and if you don’t believe me, check out this love pouring out from the both of them through our session together <3 LOVE WINS!

Oscar was a big guy, weighing over 8 pounds and slept like a dream come true for us during our session. I had to break out the “MACK DADDY” sized bowl for this chunker 🙂 This one ended up being one of my favorite images from our session and I love the mix of neutrals with the pop of the forest green <3

Of course, I ALWAYS take time to capture tiny little details like this.  I mean, seriously, when else in his entire life is it going to be considered adorable to have drool seeping out of his mouth, am I right?  Ok, I’m just a sucker for baby lips and bubbles, I won’t lie!macro upclose baby lip bubbles newborn boymacro picture toes fingers newborn photography baby

After my babies are REALLLLLY into a deep sleep, we can move into my favorite thing which is PROPS!  Tracey and Jackie had picked out a few favorites they had seen in Victor’s Newborn Session so with a few small detail changes, I was able to replicate this famous Victor image which actually appeared on the cover of Green Child Magazine – how cool is that???newborn baby boy blue blanket on barnwood with crate

Can you see his tiny little smile on the bottom left?  I love it when I am able to capture those – and check out those adorable dimples to complete the package!newborn baby boy with gray hat and smiling face

We were able to move and pose and change backgrounds so often with this amazing little dude and I was so happy with all of the variety I was able to provide during Oscar’s session with me!  As a bonus, my assistant was able to make this awesome behind the scenes video from Oscar’s session, just in case you need even MORE sweetness in your life <3

These two beautiful women are going to raise a strong and compassionate boy into adulthood and I am SO excited to watch him grow and watch their love for him and for each other expand more and more as the days move forward <3
