Downtown Frederick is one of my absolute favorite locations for portraits. It truly is beautiful year-round - in the spring, as the trees and gardens are beginning to bud and flower, throughout the summer, with the various fountains and colorful gardens, during autumn with the glorious array of colorful trees and golden sunlight, as well as throughout winter as the architectural features of Frederick especially stand out and create textural interest in your photographs. I absolutely loved working with these beautiful young ladies on a crisp, November evening in Downtown Frederick for their family portraits!
I was able to compile their favorite images from the session into a beautiful, fine art album. I love the texture of the distressed leather cover!
Hope, who will soon be graduating from Tuscarora High with the Class of 2020, was an absolute sweetheart and so excited about having her senior portraits taken! As a Frederick native, it seemed only fitting to take advantage of one of the many gorgeous locations available to us in our beautiful town. This location is definitely one of my favorites and was especially beautiful on this warm, fall afternoon in October!
Hope's family chose the beautiful fine art album and some wall art pieces to display their favorites in their home. The album is one of my top sellers and the large wall art always makes an impressive statement in your home, with many frame styles to coordinate beautifully with your decor.
As I do with every session, we met for a consultation at my New Market studio to discuss location ideas, outfits, hair/makeup suggestions, and to view the beautiful products available for displaying favorite images. This consultation really helps me to understand your vision for the session and allows me to plan with your wish list in mind so you will love the end result. Once you book your senior session, I will provide you with my senior planning guide, which covers everything from what to expect before, during, and after the session, as well as clothing and makeup tips to ensure your session is most successful! Thank you for taking the time to check out Hope's senior blog. And, if you're considering scheduling a fall senior session for the Class of 2021, contact me soon, as these fill up quickly!
I was so excited when Wyatt's mom contacted me last spring about a newborn session! Such a beautiful baby boy at just 10 days old and was my first "fall baby" of the season.
I was so excited to incorporate a few fall props into his session!
Such a beautiful family! Their love truly shows in every photo.
Wyatt's grandmother made a gorgeous quilt for him and his mom brought it along so we could use during the session. It was so perfect!
Such a gorgeous mama with her little man. Love this one of them!
I was able to deliver their product order this week (it's a little like Christmas morning for both of us!) and was so excited with how beautiful everything turned out!
Sweet Elowen visited my studio recently and quickly stole my heart! Her big, blue eyes are definitely a show-stopper and her playful personality made me want to photograph her alllll day long!
I recently added these two gorgeous outfits from Jasper and June Baby to my studio collections for clients to use. I just love Elowen in these colors!
When I handed Elowen the stuffed bunny, she immediately held it like this as if to soothe him to sleep. A little mommy in training. :)
If you haven't scheduled your child's one year portraits yet, now is the time! I am now scheduling holiday portraits for babies at my studio, so be sure to contact me soon in order to have them back in time for the holidays!
Rainy, River, and Ross celebrated their birthdays in June and I was honored to capture their sweet smiles in my home studio. River and Ross were the first set of newborn twins I had ever worked with and had the sweetest dispositions then--and even more so now! :)
Their big sis, Rainy was very excited to have her portraits taken too and was a big helper during the session. Her genuine, sweet disposition shines through in every single portrait!
As an elementary teacher by trade, I work very well with young children and they quickly warm up to me during the session, allowing me to get natural expressions and smiles. I want parents to see their child's personality shine through in every image so it is very important to me that I connect with their children during their time with me!
Kids at this age are always ON THE MOVE and I especially love to capture them as they are crawling or sometimes walking toward me!
These siblings share a sweet bond. Loved watching Rainy interact with her little sis and brother.
Had to get one of the twins in one of the same crates I photographed them in as newborns!
So much squish!
River was also on the move, though not quite as fast as her twin brother! :)
I send out a portrait questionnaire to get to know my clients and their children before they step into my studio. One of the things their mom and dad mentioned was their love for books so we HAD to get a few of them with some of their favorites!
Those cute, chubby legs. LOVE!!!
It's fun to individually frame and display their little one spelling out the number of their birthday!
Contact me TODAY to book your child's portrait session! Capturing a little one's personality in a fun, relaxed, environment is what I do best. And I promise there will be lots of giggles and fun!
To schedule a session, kindly fill out the contact form here on my website and I'll be in touch soon!
I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family in May. This little boy was so sweet and was such an awesome sleeper! His big sister was absolutely precious and seemed to enjoy our time together while I was there. I love when I am able to capture images that show all the little details of a newborn that I find so beautiful...their little wrinkles, tiny toes, lips...these unique features change so quickly and it's important to capture those while they are this age. I absolutely love being able to capture these images for my clients! Best job in the world!!!
