One of the largest worries my clients come to me with is what to wear for their Washington DC newborn session. Most people do not naturally have dresses for photo sessions already in their wardrobes. Naturally, this can cause confusion or indecision on what to wear. The overarching idea to aim for is to look […]

I’m a Newborn Photographer in Maryland, and I did not get newborn photos. You read that correctly. I specialize in motherhood photography and made the choice to NOT get photos taken when Rosie was born. Why? We were so busy – there were many items on our to-do list, and we felt like we were […]

This Maryland newborn session was photographed on a crisp fall day. We had documented this beautiful family’s maternity session in the summer in DC.

As a DC fine art photographer, I have desired to enrich the service I provide the families I photograph. I couldn’t quite place my finger on it, but it seemed there should be something more than simply sending an online gallery and calling it a day.
