Baby Harbor | Southern Maryland Newborn Photographer

Sep 7, 2018

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 […]

Baby Dominick | Maryland Newborn Photographer

Aug 19, 2018

I still remember when I first met the Dominick family. It was summer 2014, and I was VERY pregnant with Caroline. I was determined to have an unmedicated childbirth: I’d read the books, studied breathing techniques and positions, and even signed Adam and myself up for natural birth classes so we’d be ready for baby.

All About Leigh!

Jul 13, 2018

It all started during an online newborn workshop I took in the fall of 2017. The instructor, Rachel Vanoven, was someone I greatly admire and one of the best newborn photographers in the world, so her word was gospel. And she laid out some pretty explicit advice, in no uncertain terms: every newborn photographer should […]

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. Before they were born, newborn photography seemed like a frivolous expense. “What do I […]

Planning for Your Newborn Session

Sep 6, 2017

Newborn photography is my absolute favorite genre. 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 […]

Product Review: Folio Box

Sep 4, 2017

Nearly every client asks which of my products is my personal favorite – hands down, it’s the folio box. Why? The folio box is versatile, stunningly gorgeous, and most importantly, archival. Each box measures 11×14 and includes an assortment of 8×10 portraits, matted to 11×14. This is the PERFECT size to either frame and create […]

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 […]
