THE JOURNAL

As a child and family photographer, one question I hear alllll the time from parents is: how the heck do you do it? I wish I could say it’s easy, but it’s not. Creating beautiful images of children is HARD! Patience and confidence, y’all. You know how they say dogs can smell fear? Well, kids […]

Yesterday I toured an absolutely AMAZING location that I cannot wait to share with you guys. From the moment I entered the gates at London Town & Gardens, it truly felt like I was walking into a fairytale. It’s the epitome of southern Maryland: stunning coastal views, historic tobacco barns, and of course: some of […]

A fairytale location, and the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

It’s safe to say spring has sprung in southern Maryland! I met the Snyder family on a beautiful Sunday afternoon for this session.

How often are we moms stuck behind the camera, or even worse, at the mercy of our (well-intentioned!) husbands fumbling with an iPhone, hoping to get one semi-decent shot? Moms, I know that what you truly want are beautiful, intentional photographs of you *with* your children. That’s why I’ve designed my newest collection with you […]

It’s no secret that moms love to take pictures. A piece of your heart is literally walking around outside your body, growing and changing every day. You want to capture every minute – especially in the early days. I took the above image when my youngest daughter, Eleanor, was just three days old. I whipped […]

Jaxon’s newborn session was like stepping in to a time machine. When Marie told me that her older son, Kenny, was just 21 months old, I knew what we would be in for – that’s exactly the age spread between my girls. Kenny kept us on our toes, but nonetheless we had an absolutely wonderful […]

I have the greatest job in the world. Sure, the occupational hazards include the risk of getting peed on (or worse) and posing newborns requires the patience of Job, BUT LOOK AT THIS BOY. Connor is just the sweetest little babe, with big, thoughtful eyes and beautiful fair skin. He is most definitely his mama’s […]
