eight {maryland child and family photographer}

June 3rd, 2012 | Children, Maryland child photographer, Maryland family photographer, mine

My son Noah just turned eight this past week.  Instead of micromanaging choosing the location, props and styling like I usually do, I let Noah pick the place and the theme.

He is really into soccer this year so that was his choice!  Fortunately, we have a gorgeous soccer field nearby with rolling hills in the background.

The evening we shot these we had a beautiful blue sky that turned into a stunning sunset -heaven!

Happy eighth birthday to my sweet Noah!  You are very, very loved!


He;s so handsome, and he’s going to treasure these images forever. Love the action shots!

it was all yellow {maryland child and family portrait photographer}

March 28th, 2012 | Children, Maryland child photographer, Maryland family photographer, mine

I love this field so much – it bloomed early this year after our mild winter.  I always try to get a few pictures of noah & emme there each year.  Some years they are more cooperative than others :)


WOW where is this field?! and is it possible still bloomed like that?

 ( May 21st, 2012 4:57 pm)

Wow. I also wish we had field like that nearby. Lovin’ absolutely everything about these images!!

Honestly Andrea, Noah should play the prince in a Disney movie! Such adorable kiddos and that field is amazing! Wish we had one around here. Great work, as always! :)

emme & the cherry blossoms {maryland child and family photographer}

March 26th, 2012 | Children, Maryland child photographer, Maryland family photographer, mine

Maryland is so beautiful this time of year.  The cherry blossoms are in full bloom for about a week and they are just so, so gorgeous.

Emme and I had a little photo session amongst the trees, wearing her new sparkly pink shoes from Joyfolie. Her pink bow headband is from The Belle and the Beau :)


Stunning!! You must have a big house to display all these gorgeous images on your walls!! :)

Self-Portrait Project ~ March 2012

March 19th, 2012 | mine

Soooooo . . .  I am almost a week late on this project but better late then never, no?

This month I have been experimenting with cinemagraphsCinemagraphs are basically moving photographs.  I think they are fun and interesting to look at and so for this month’s self -portrait I created a cinemagraph of me and my best girl :) She was wary of another “boring photo session” but I told her we could get all glammed up and wear lip gloss -suddenly she was down for it :)  Apparently lip gloss is a great motivator in my house :)


I am participating in thie project with several other very talented photographers acroos the country so head on over to Racheal Pulver’s blog  Rae of Light Photography in Round Rock/Austin, Texas to see what she is up to this month :)







I totally missed commenting on this post! How cool is that? I will have to try the whole lip gloss technique with my daughter to see if it will motivate her.

Gorgeous! We’ve found that strawberry “chap-tik” is one of the best bribes for our daughter. :) Love the creativity of displaying this as a cinemagraph!

Gorgeous! So very clever. I have to bribe with chocolate for my boys…lip gloss sounds so much better. Kx

a clean start ~ self-portrait project, january 2012

January 15th, 2012 | mine, Uncategorized

This year, I’m participating in a monthly self-portrait project with 16 other photographers across the country.  The project focuses on capturing our relationships with the people in our lives.  We all post once a month and my hope is that it will be a creative and fun outlet resulting in some images I will always treasure.

Two years ago, on New Years Day, I did a bubble bath session with my kids.  They had so much fun with all the bubbles in our big bathtub I thought that I would join them for my first self-portrait post.

So, that’s us! Bubbles and all! Now, kindly head on over to Christina’s blog , Christina Anglum Photography, Katy Houston TX Photographer,  and see what she is up to this month :)


Such a wonderful idea to get out from behind the lens, and so perfectly captured. Love, love, LOVE!!

summer skies ~ {maryland child and family photographer}

January 11th, 2012 | Children, Maryland child photographer, mine

I really love the sky in the summertime.  From puffy white clouds floating in a pale blue sky, to deep blue skies over a sunny field, to dark, ominous skies signaling an approaching hurricane, the sky fascinates me.  These images were shot over 4 different days last summer. I miss summer -boo hoo! :)


That hill setting is such a perfect find, and the images are breathtaking!!

I have followed your work for a little while… found you on pinterest. I am so in awe of your photos. I just love coming to look! Especially of your little dude as I have two myself.

 ( Jan 30th, 2012 1:12 pm)

beautiful pics, your boy is going to be such a heartbreaker!
