Sunshine In My Sky | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

This beautiful baby in might be one of my favorite sessions ever, but I might be a tiiiiny bit biased because she comes from my gene pool. YUP, she is my cousin’s first daughter, Skylar. You might remember our pink sky maternity session while we waited for her to arrive. And she has finally shown up and stopped in to hang out in my studio! Photography is such an amazing gift because within the 40-some pictures of the same beautiful little face, I saw tiny bits of myself, my cousins, my aunts, my mother, my Gammy, my great grandma within her. All gifts from the women before her who have dreamed and worked and lived and laughed and passed their grace onto her.

I feel like the more I dive deeper into my love of photography, the further back I step in the grand scheme of things. I get to stop time and focus on tiny pieces of such a large gift of new life that have probably already changed since her pictures were taken last week and will continue to change forever!

I can’t wait to watch this nugget grow. Welcome to the world, Skylar!

Elizabeth – 10 Days New! | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

When I get ready for newborn sessions, I don’t just pick out hats and headbands and lay flowers into buckets, I make sure the main seeable section of my home is bright and shiny and relaxing. Usually a sleepy blend of essential oils is diffusing and my favorite soft pop hits are lightly singing through the air. When I have older siblings arriving, I make sure to greet them first and introduce myself and see what kind of fun stuff they’re into. Lucky for my client’s big brother, my younger son, Zac just recently got very into trains, so I was ready when he told me he loved Thomas the Tank Engine. I pulled out my son’s box of train tracks and blocks and I dragged his train track rug out of his room. I knew we would be good to go with little sis as big brother played quietly (occasionally peeking in to see what was happening in the studio!) Not only was he great behind the scenes, but James was SO charming with Elizabeth when it was his time to shine, I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite – as you will see! This whole family was so sweet and I always feel it is a true honor to photograph a family within those precious first few weeks. Get your baby fix below!

Fall In Love With Emily | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

LOL no this is not a documentary post, my latest little client and I shared what I consider to be basically the BEST name ever. I honestly had such an awesome time getting to know Christine and Rudy while we watched Emily run her own session. I say this because she was perfectly content how I was posing her, in fact she slept almost the whole time she was in the studio, but every so often she would kick a foot out or move her hand slightly and I would like it better there anyway so I kept the pose natural to how Emily preferred. I learned that she has had an amazing personality from day ONE and even grew a whole inch in ONE WEEK. She’s seriously a boss girl baby and I love it. Her parents and I laughed and chatted and I am so glad we met! I’m glad Emily was feelin’ the fall set ups as much as THIS Emily (me!) because September has arrived, my big kiddo has started school and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks (crucial.) so the plaid and the warm fall colors have come OUT. I’m in love with this whole session, so enjoy!

I hope you loved, Emily! 😉

Kennedy, 16 Days New | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

If you thought for one second that these guys were going to make a stunning little baby girl:

You were SO RIGHT.

Kennedy was a DREAM. I barely saw her eyes the entire time she hung out in the studio and we even got to play dress up a little. She had an amazing head of hair, too! If you need a daily dose of baby CUTENESS. You’re about to be set for like a week. You’re welcome.

It’s About TIME, Ten Day Old Emilia | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

Ms. Emilia Marguerite. So many had been waiting for you. The first grand baby on both sides. Over due by OVER a week and after almost 30 hours in labor. Your world has been so ready to meet you and watch you grow. I can tell you it was an honor being by your Mama’s side welcoming you on your Birth Day. You did an amazing job at your very first (of MANY) emiB session. I hardly saw your eyes until near the end, but boy, are they beautiful eyes.
Folks. This lady here is gonna seriously do some amazing things in this world. Starting with pulling off Mama’s favorite shade of purple and making sure we included a fun nod to Batman and Doctor Who because as we have learned in the short time of knowing Emilia, she is on her own time schedule.

Ok, I am simply obsessed with this lace wrap.
