For a childhood friend

So Facebook truly is amazing … I was able to reconnect with a friend from elementary school awhile back. She lives in Florida with her family and made a visit to Baltimore over the weekend. We were able to meet up for a fun session with her two kiddos while she was here. Older sis is 4 years old and such a beauty! She was also happy to pose for me πŸ™‚ Little bro is oh-so-adorable and totally on the move at 18 months.

I still managed to grab several shots out of him anyway though. Could he be any cuter?!? I love this b&w pouty face – his eyes are just perfect πŸ™‚

Miss M. is a little model in the making – such a gorgeous girl!

Mom – THANK YOU!! It was so fun meeting your kids and seeing you again! I especially enjoyed seeing how much your daughter looks JUST like you did as a little girl. I hope you had a safe trip back to FL, I’ll let you know as soon as I finish with the rest! I had fun!

Siblings – Vintage & B&W style

I had some fun editing these! This first one is processed with a vintage style and I just love it! The kids have great expressions on their faces but my favorite part is how big brother is curling his toes in his shoes. I know I’m strange, LOL. But it shows that he was really having a good time πŸ™‚

I’m really digging these kiddos in b&w also. I have all of the color versions too, but just “felt” the b&w on a lot of these.

Here’s the vintage processing again. It’s definitely not for every image but these kids really pull it off well πŸ™‚

And one more of big brother in b&w – I think this was a “stinky face” … toooo cute!

Thanks Mom & Dad for meeting up with me on Memorial Day! These are a few of my favorites from what we shot. Your kids are utterly adorable, I can’t wait to get my camera in front of them again!

A Timeless Beauty

I had such a fun time photographing this little beauty – this is the 4th time I’ve had the pleasure so she probably looks familiar! It’s impossible to forget those unbelievably reflective baby blues πŸ™‚ Miss Piper is just about to turn 1 and is now crossing into the “little girl” territory … it’s a little bittersweet!
She is an amazing trooper – we used several areas for our portraits and got her out of the stroller over and over again … she happily posed for me (most of the time anyway). LOL. We shot some fun cake smashing images too, at least until the ants invaded and took over.
To Mom & Dad – THANK YOU! It’s been a pleasure to capture Piper’s first year and I sooo appreciate your referrals! It means more than you know that you continue to send your friends to me. I look forward to watching Piper grow up – we’ll meet up again soon to get those tutu shots!
PS – Hey Clients!!
This session fee was completely waived because Piper’s parents have sent me so many referrals! If you don’t know about my referral program – head over to my website and check it out! You can earn a waived session fee for every 3 referrals for paid portrait sessions. It’s the best way I know to say “thank you!”

Sweetest big brother ever

Seriously, isn’t that 1st one the sweetest “big brother” portrait? This little guy is expecting a new baby sister in July so we had a pre-baby family session. I just adore the maternity portraits we did of Mom, she’s totally stunning! I’m also in love with the b&w family portrait. We got an awesome “traditional” pose also, but I mostly prefer the in-the-moment shots anyway.
And of course, the session would not have been complete without individual portraits of 18-month old J. It’s funny, this little guy made us work for the shots, but I sure am glad we didn’t give up! A few of my favorites came from the last 10 minutes of the session! LOL.
R. and L. – I had a really fun time hanging out with you both and chasing around your little guy – he is such a sweetie pie! Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

On the move!

I always enjoy photographing this little guy. You may remember him as the Little Sailor HERE. At 9 months now, he is moving around a ton compared to our last session. He also has such a variety of facial expressions … I think we just *may* have captured them all πŸ™‚ I’ll leave the final call up to Mom though. Here are a few of my favorites so far. He is pulling himself up on everything and crawling all over. He is super entertained by Mom & Dad too, which you can especially see in the first portrait (love the little teefers!).
Thanks again M & B for another great session! I’m so glad the weather held out for us! I can’t wait to see your little guy in another 3 months!
