Pretty in Pink ~ maryland family photographer

January 23rd, 2011 | Maryland child photographer, Maryland family photographer, Maryland Newborn Photographer

Inspired by the color pink today -it’s one of my favorites, plus it reminds me of SPRING, which I am anxiously awaiting.  I had some beautiful pink tulips and some fluffy cotton candy on hand. The cotton candy was so delicious I hid it from the kids and ate it in about 30 seconds. YUM.

I also photographed some gorgeous decorative postcards from Joyfolie -perfect to add a bit of whimsy to a vintage frame, book shelf, or whatever you can dream up :)

Beautiful as usual Andrea! I would have hidden the cotton candy too, I love when the fair comes to town so I can get a big bag! yummy :-)

Their freckled noses and  blue/green/hazel eyes, his impossibly long eyelashes and pouty lips, and her crazy curls and dimpled cheeks . . .


Absolutely beautiful

Winter Studio Sessions ~ maryland family photographer

January 8th, 2011 | Children, Maryland child photographer, Maryland Newborn Photographer, Maryland senior photographer, mine, Uncategorized

Happy 2011!  

I had a wonderful break over the holidays and I hope you did too! It is also nice to get back in the swing of things and reunite with my camera again :)    I have had lots of inquiries this winter about photo sessions, but, I shoot in natural light only which generally means outdoors, in the cold, burrrrrrrr . . . not really an option for small children and babies.

SO, I am happy to announce that I will be offering Winter Studio Sessions for babies and children. 

Sessions will take place in my (warm) natural light studio in Mt. Airy, MD. 

If you are interested, email me at for pricing and availability.

Today I did a mini session with Noah and Emme in the studio using my vintage backdrops and velvet chaise.  Even Emme, who is typically impossible to photograph, loved cozing up in the chaise for a few images. 

It also may have had something to do with her new pink princess dress :)


Where do you get your vintage backdrops and blankets if you don’t mind me asking? Thanks :)

And your photographs are absolutely STUNNING!
