Traci's Maternity Session

Our first maternity session of 2019 was nothing short of amazing! Julio and Traci made the trip to Maryland just for a short visit and their maternity session, how awesome is that? Traci is Kerry’s childhood friend- all the way back to the 3rd grade! Traci and Kerry lived down the street from each other in New Jersey, where they were inseparable until they both went to colleges out of state (MD and PA). And although life’s circumstances and distance hasn’t allowed for many chances to see each other, they didn’t skip a beat last weekend!

We chose Piney Run Park in Sykesville for the session location. It was a very cold January day but we did okay with the help of some robes and blankets! Traci’s long sleeve dress by Sew Trendy was a really beautiful winter choice. We also did Traci’s hair that afternoon and made her flower crown to go with the color of her dress. Everything came together so nicely! Julio & Traci, we are so happy for you both and cannot wait to see photos of that sweet baby girl! We hope you can always look back on these photos and remember this special time just before you became parents.

Fun on the Farm- Sykesville, MD

When Stephanie called us to schedule an extended family session, we knew it was going to be special.  Her grandparents bought their farm in Sykesville and raised their children on it decades ago.  Stephanie and her sister Amie were also raised on this farm.  After years in the works, Amie built her own house on the farm and Stephanie moved back and completely renovated one of the original houses.  Now, the 4th generation of children gets to enjoy the same carefree, fun childhood! What an amazing place to make memories that they can remember for a lifetime! What a special session it was and we were so happy to help capture memories on the farm!

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. :)



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!
