adriano & gaia 2012 ~mommy & me session {maryland child and family portrait photographer}

April 5th, 2012 | Children, family, Maryland child photographer, Maryland family photographer

I was so happy to see my beautiful clients who visit from Italy every year.

This year we had a fun “mommy & me” session amongst the blooming apple blossoms in the orchard.  I really believe that every mom should have her own portrait session with her children :)

Here’s a huge share from our evening together . . .

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?

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
