New Product

I'm happy to offer gallery-mounted prints and storyboards now with every session. Any size can be gallery-mounted with your choice of a white or black beveled edge and they come with a protective matte finish and are ready to hang.

I have a 12x12 print example shown here along with a 10x20 storyboard. The storyboard is actually now displayed on an easel in front of my fireplace and the print is resting against the mirror on my mantle, but either could be hung on the wall as you can see in the last paragraph. I love the high-quality look and feel they provide!

Weekend Update

I thought it was supposed to be Spring already? I'm still anxiously awaiting Spring weather over here... a rain-out today but I had a great time hosting a Matilda Jane Trunk Show. Didn't get an invite? Well then maybe it's because you're not a Facebook fan! Or maybe it's because you don't have a little girl :) I cannot tell you how excited I am to photograph Madeline and the little girls that were here today in their Matilda Jane attire! Spring better get here very quickly because I have big plans...

I have an exciting update for you. One of my photos can be seen on Frederick Co. Government's new Sustainability webpage of the beautiful Miss B.

And in other published news, last month, my Brag Books were featured on Design Aglow at and since then, I've been innundated with photographers all over the country wanting to know how I made those Brag Books. Pretty cool.

I have a new product to show you tomorrow, some exciting shoots coming up but for now, I leave you with another photo of that cutie pie from last weekend.

Coffee Table Books

Tomorrow I will be helping to judge a local high school photo contest.... how fun is that?!!! Because they've asked me to come during the morning when I have Madeline, I'll be bringing my very reliable "assistant" to help me with the judging process! I believe her criteria is, "ba-ba? Elmo? ball?" Those usually get a "WOW!" from her... hope someone photographed Elmo...

Okay, so here's what I really wanted to post new coffee table books! I have it shown here with a custom photo cover but I also sell them in solid leather covers. The pages are super thick and the spine is hinged so that it lays flat on the table. This is a baby girl example where I combined the baby session and the maternity session (LOVE that!) but could easily work for any girl or even an engagement album since the color is customizable.

Because I love these books so much, I also purchased a custom template for an adorable baby boy template and a bright vibrant colored family one... working on a sample layout for those.

Oh Lucky Days

You'd better be wearing green today or else... Madeline packs a mean set of muscles ya know! Happy St. Patrick's Day

P.S. Yes, I think it's pretty cool how her shirt matches my new logo!

Happy weekend again! Fairfield Child Photographer

I shot a private session today, which was awesome, but I am unable to post a sneak peek from the session... and I have a magazine session tomorrow, which I am unable to post pictures from until the issue hits the stands... so what in the world am I supposed to post on my photography blog?!!! How about another favorite from last weekend and a promise to post a St. Patty's Day photo of my girl by Tuesday?

I particularly like this photo because when this mom contacted me for this session, she said her son doesn't do very well in the "chain studios" and she just wanted some professional photos of her boys where he's not crying... so yay for me for not making him cry :)

If you look closely at the photo below, you'll see my new logo watermarked on it. Isn't it pretty???!! I adore it and it's just the look I've been after. It'll take me some time to have all of my materials reprinted and site switched over, so I'm gonna start with baby steps here... my favorite kind of steps anyway!

Breath of Fresh Air. Frederick County Child Photographer

This weekend was absolutely a breath of fresh air. Not only did I enjoy the wonderful temps but I finally got to go outside for a photo session, without winter jackets! I met these sweet boys on Saturday and I could not have been happier with how adorable they were dressed, their gorgeous bedrooms which made for some great (and personal) backdrops (much more so than just a plain old studio backdrop) and just how easy-going their mom was. All of those things are a sure recipie for a great session.

Here are just a few of my favorites!
