5 Reasons for Pregnancy Photos

When you’re expecting a new baby in your life, and in your house, sometimes documenting the pregnancy with a maternity photo session is the last thing on your mind. However, I’ve found most women are either extremely glad they...
Mils & Oz

Mils & Oz

My college roomie, Pauline, and I have been friends for over 18 years. Over those many years, we've only lived in the same area twice (not including the four years that we shared a small room at school). Happily, we've managed to visit each other during those times...

Nirvaan

Nirvaan

Nirvaan, whose name is Sanskrit for “ultimate bliss,” was 10-days old when I photographed him and his parents last week. He has a most impressive shock of spiky punk rocker black hair and likes to sleep with his arms above his turned head. Both awake and asleep, he...

Lauren

Lauren

I had the pleasure to photograph Lauren and her family on Friday. At just under two weeks old, she was already starting to become more alert and awake, but with mom, dad, and grandma's help, we managed to coax her to sleep to capture some images of her getting some...

Catching Some Zs

Catching Some Zs

As every parent knows, your baby will always keep you on your toes. You can think he's settling into a knowable sleep routine, only to have him remind you that routine is overrated. 😉 I usually plan to start infant photo sessions right after nap time with the hope...

Leena + Matt

Leena + Matt

On a hot, steamy evening in July, I met with parents-to-be Leena and Matt. In spite of some quick moving rain showers, always a potential liability at this time of year, we were able to do most of the session outside. Their lovely home was in midst of almost-completed...

Tyler Four Months Later

Tyler Four Months Later

Last time I photographed Tyler was back in April. He is now crawling (very fast I might add), has a lot more hair and new chompers, and still sports a winning smile. I once again braved scorching summer weather to do a session outside, but we managed to finish up and...

Anna & Liam

Anna & Liam

I met up with big sister Anna and little brother Liam and their mom on one of the few cool days in recent memory. We planned the timing of the photo session to ensure we caught Liam in the crawling/cruising stage, just on the verge of, but not quite yet taking, his...

Farewell Cecelia

Farewell Cecelia

I first photographed Cecelia when she was only 6 months old. I was thrilled when her mom asked me to do a follow-up photo session, but sad to hear they were relocating to Boston. I hadn't seen Cecelia since our first session, so it was really fun to see her all grown...

Introducing Miss Vivienne

Introducing Miss Vivienne

Eight days old. Her name represents New Orleans where her parents met and Haiti where her father served in the Peace Corps. With a little jazz playing in the background to soothe her, she slept through almost the entire photo session, breaking into sweet little sleep...

Sleepy Tommy

Sleepy Tommy

Whenever I schedule a photo session, my clients and I try to plan the start time close to when they anticipate their baby waking up from a nap. Young babies, who are still napping two to three times a day, usually don't last more than two to three hours between naps...

Christopher

Christopher

I have known Christopher for about a year and half now. He's one of the kids that frequents all the same spots as my son and I: Stead Park, Westminster Park, and the Daniel T. Watha Library. I've become friendly with Christopher's fantastic nanny Danielle over the...

Twins: Take 4

Twins: Take 4

Mea and Parrish were my fourth set of twins in just over a year, but my first set of newborn twins. I've always been impressed by the calm and collected nature of all the moms of multiples I've encountered thus far, but I now have even greater appreciation for the...

More twin power

More twin power

Olivia and Alexis were my third set of twins in the past year. These little cuties were a pleasure to photograph, both together and individually. Their parents and I had an amusing time trying to pose the two of them together with Olivia wanting to scoot backwards and...

Aven

Aven

It's been a busy few weeks so it's taking me a little longer than usual to proof the last couple of sessions. Here, finally, is Aven! She was just about 4 months old and starting to enjoy tummy time. The rest of the images will be ready soon!

Freeman on the go

Freeman on the go

Freeman is one of the more active little boys I've had the pleasure of photographing recently. He was thoroughly enjoying his newfound walking (and running) skills throughout our entire session and gave me a good workout in the process. Thanks to his parents for...

Tyler

Tyler

I met Tyler and his lovely parents a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he a cutie pie? What an easy going baby - he was a pleasure to photograph. This was another session photographed during that first warm weekend of the season so we headed out into the neighborhood, taking...

Goodbye Rain?

Goodbye Rain?

This session was originally supposed to be two weeks ago. You probably don't remember how bad the weather was that weekend, so let me refresh your memory: it was as if we were in the middle of monsoon season with major flooding all over the region. Definitely not...

Some more new year’s wishes

I designed this card in honor of Eve and Sonia's first birthday with new year's wishes from the whole family. Not quite a birth announcement, nor a holiday card, nor an invitation, the theme required a unique design. With some collaboration with mom, I think we came...

Julie is simply an amazing photographer. Not only are her photos works of art, she’s great at capturing her small subjects’ personalities. A mother herself, Julie also is very patient in working with babies and children and their schedules. If you want gorgeous pictures, hire Julie.
