Got Sleep?

Sep 7, 2018

It’s no secret that I hear the words “baby whisperer” A LOT. True, it’s literally my job to know how to soothe newborns and help them sleep. But sadly, my expertise pretty much ends once they’re out of the newborn phase. Through the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce, I’ve been able to connect with a […]

Jul 5, 2018

Posed newborn portraiture is a relatively modern photography genre. Clients are often first time parents and have rarely even held a newborn, much less know what it’s like to photograph one. To help answer your questions, I’m answering the three biggest ones I get below, as well as breaking down the why behind each one. […]

Know Your Why.

Sep 29, 2017

It’s hard to put the power of newborn photography into words, but I’m going to try. My births and post-partum experiences were difficult, physically and mentally, and sadly, I don’t have many happy memories of the early days with my daughters.

I love being one of the first people to snuggle baby, providing a cozy, inviting place for parents to rest, and creating stunning images that will be adored for a lifetime. You may not realize it, but a LOT of planning, preparation, education, and training has gone into […]

Aug 18, 2017

Congratulations, you’re about to have a baby! You’re probably Googling at all hours of the day: looking for the best car seat, the fastest route to the hospital, researching where your pediatrician went to med school juuuust to make sure it’s legit.

Southern Maryland Fresh 48 Sessions

Aug 5, 2017

The hushed excitement pulsing through the recovery room. Three (yes, THREE!) big sisters, eagerly waiting to meet the newest baby girl. The sweet swell of mama’s freshly postpartum belly, cradling a newborn that’s been earthside for just a few hours. Fresh 48 sessions are magical. Documentary and unposed, taking place in the hospital within 48 […]

Jul 13, 2017

Congratulations, you’re about to have a baby! Prepare to be bombarded with unsolicited advice, sleepless nights, and more stuff than you know what to do with. Why do the smallest humans seem to take up the most space?! I’ve now raised two babies to toddlerhood (how did that happen so fast?!), so here’s a quick […]
