Baby Liam - Studio Newborn Session

Sweet little Liam was born just a few days after his mom and dad celebrated their first anniversary together!  They were our wedding clients as well, which made it extra special getting to meet him.

His nursery colors were gray, navy, and teal, so we went with the theme with the wraps and props we picked. His mom, Katie, brought the little deer hat and the bear rug from his room. We love when we get to incorporate personal props. We can imagine him getting a lot of photos taken on the bear rug as he grows!

Liam took a little while to want to go to sleep enough to be posed, but you can tell he passed out hard at the end when mom was dressing him again and it was time to go home! We just had to take a couple more in his cute little outfit.  He slept there for a few minutes while everything was getting packed up. 

Katie & Matthew, congratulations on such an adorable little boy! Enjoy! We hope to see you all again soon. 

 

Baby Brayden - Lifestyle Newborn Session

As some of you may know, I am also a part-time nanny for a wonderful family.  A couple weeks ago, they just welcomed their 3rd baby boy!  It was a lot of fun to be able to photograph not only the new little squish, but his big brothers who I get to see every week!  

Brayden was a sleeping champ and let me pose him through toddler chaos and his barking dog. He is already playing his birth order role just fine! Mom made cute white shirts for each of the boys that read "Big Brother, Middle Brother, and Little Brother."  Thankfully we captured one where the words were readable and the big brothers were looking and smiling!  We also captured plenty of silly faces and giggles, which always end up being our favorites!

Thank you for having us as your photographers!  We both can't wait to watch him grow. :)

Halfway to One -Mia is 6 months! Catonsville, Md

My youngest niece just turned 6 months! What a perfect time to fit in a indoor winter (supposed to be almost Spring!) session. I wish some people could record us as we photograph family members kiddos sometimes. Chaos, lol! A good, fun, crazy chaos! Im not sure when we all decided to have so many kids but between just me and my sister in law we had seven kids running around. Lucky for us Mia is so easygoing and content :) She just hung out on the beanbag and smiled away as if nothing was going on around her! You just gotta love her! She is the sweetest little addition to our crazy crew and we love her oh so much! 

Mackenzie Turns ONE - Catonsville, MD

What a sweet day we had with Mackenzie and her parents! It has been freezing cold these past few weeks, but we somehow managed to book this session on the only 60 degree day. It couldn’t have come at a better time! Mackenzie came model-ready for her photo shoot. Her mama brought all these cute decorations she had for her first party we got to include. We love when we get to incorporate special memories into each session. Not only did they come along with decorations, but they made sure to have snacks on hand, which Mackenzie knew all about! She went right for the snack stash and kept getting little bits and pieces as she posed for us. :) Too smart- she already knows how to get what she wants! We enjoyed this session and getting to know Scott, Erin and Mackenzie. Happy birthday sweet girl! 

Baby Anthony's Newborn Session

Here we go, re-blogging some of our sessions from last year!  It is actually fun to look back on these photos and share them again.  We know our clients will love it too, especially these newborn sessions!  Sweet Anthony will be turning 1 in February, and I feel like his session was just yesterday.  Anthony's sweet mom and grandma came to our Sykesville location to get his portraits done.  The three of us had a blast chatting and worked hard taking turns, trying to get him to sleep!  He was definitely a stubborn one at first, but we had patience that paid off.  I think he just wanted to show off his beautiful blue eyes a bit.  Enjoy the photos!

 

Sandy Toes Surprise

Excited to repost and share with people who may or may not have seen this fun engagement session we did! This wasn't an ordinary engagement session. We got to capture my brother purposing to his soon to be wife! We went to Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina over this past summer and stayed in one big home filled with 46 people. Your thinking we are nuts, aren't you? It was such a crazy and fun vacation! Can you imagine all of that fun packed into one home? We weren't sure about it either It turned out to be one BIG amazing trip!  To jumpstart the vacation Josiah had planned all along that on the second night there he would slip away with Julie and we would run down to quickly set up everything he had planned. Kerry and I hid behind steps and the brush of the sand dunes giggling like little kids awaiting their return. We were having so much fun before it had even begun. The suspense was killing us but we loved every minute of it! As you can see from the photos it turned out to be better then we could have expected and we were able to capture the raw emotion and love they share for one another! We could not be happier they had us there and sharing in this delicate moment. This may just be a once in a lifetime beach trip that all of our families will cherish and remember for years to come!

Snow Day Family Session- Sykesville, MD

Back in December, we got our first snow of the season here in Sykesville, MD.  It happened to be a Saturday, so we made a family hangout day out of it.  My Christmas Eve nephew baby was about to turn 1, so we thought a snowy session would be great!  

We took a few indoor portraits, to keep Jackson happy and comfortable, although 1 year-olds can be tricky to keep on the set!  So we headed outside for some family fun, and it was Jackson's first time really getting to experience the snow!  It was pretty cold and he became uncomfortable quickly.  It's a good thing he is such a happy, smiley baby for Aunt Kerry! ;)

I can't help but throw in a few of his newborn portraits at the end.  This year has flown by and it has been such a joy to have him in our family.  We love you guys!

Vredenburg Family Session

Welcome to our NEW BLOG!  Although we lost a ton of content in the transfer that we are trying not to think about, it was a much needed change, and we will definitely be going back and sharing previous sessions!  

Our official first post is our last session of 2017!  Caitlin & Colin invited us into their home right before the new year, for a beautiful lifestyle session with their 2 month old daughter.  Right away we noticed her gorgeous red hair.  Mom had a baby picture of herself in the room too, and they looked so much alike!  Baby Callie was born at home, so capturing her in the same room she entered this world in was pretty awesome.  We loved hearing bits and pieces of her birth story and getting to know them.  

Lifestyle sessions are perfect for those in-between baby stages.  A little too old for newborn posing, but just right for lifestyle!  They also work well when it is bitter cold outside!  We had just gotten an inch or so of snow overnight, so going outside definitely wasn't an option.  This family opted to stay toasty and warm, getting in their snuggles, kisses, and feeding time before their baby girl grows up way too fast!

Thank you for having us capture this special time, Caitlin and Colin!
