Living near a major Naval base in southern Maryland means much of my clientele is active duty military. It’s such an honor to serve them, especially knowing how important these photographs while they’re separated from one another. It totally warms my heart when a dad is home on leave for just a few days, yet […]
August was a major baby boom month here at the studio, and I’m so excited to start sharing some beautiful recaps with you! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing baby Grace on Fort Belvior in northern Virginia. Talk about an AMAZING hospital! The maternity wing was immaculate and beautifully decorated.

That literally anyone can buy a camera and open shop? You’ll have to do some research when searching for a newborn photographer because unfortunately, the burden is on […]
I am SO BEHIND on blogging lately! It’s outta control, guys. But I’m here and THRILLED to share some of my favorite images from baby Martin’s newborn session a few weeks ago!
