Maternity Made Chic: Deanna Edition Baltimore, MD Newborn Photographer

A maxi dress.

A pop of color from a yellow belt.

A ballerina skirt.

Deanna rocked every look that we photographed and some secret shots as well!

I’m loving the trend of super fitted clothing for clients lately. I swear maternity clothes have come a long way in the 4 years since I wore them.   With stores like Target, Ann Taylor Loft, H&M and Gap stocking maternity clothes in house, there’s no need to feel less fashionable for those 9+ long months.   You can be edgy, feminine, classic, bohemian, or preppy.   Stay true to your style and I bet you’ll feel a lot better about your pregnant form.  Plus, you’ll have friends lining up to grab your clothes when they have the infamous “+” “home test!

Awaiting Little Boy Red, White and Blue: Baltimore, MD Newborn Photographer

Meet Karla. She’s the latest Momma to book one of my mini maternity sessions just for herself. With her brave soldier overseas, Karla wanted to do something to capture this pregnancy for him. I can think of no better way!
Karla was effortlessly beautiful, witty and when she smiled, the whole room lit up. I can’t wait to meet her little man and soon after, her husband. Here’s hoping these pictures provide him with a precious glimpse into Karla’s journey as a Mom.

Meet Mindi. The latest in a string of DROP DEAD GORGEOUS Moms to grace my studio. And this isn’t even her first baby. It’s her second pregnancy and third little girl. I spy a Daddy with a bathroom shortage in 12+ years!

Family shot with 16 month old twin toddlers? No sweat. Just make my signature piggy noise to get their attention and we’re golden.

And these gorgeous girls needed their own moment in the spotlight too. I can’t wait to see how they react to their new sister in 2 months!

And Daddy. Well not only did he wear a pink gingham shirt, but he had a tea party with his girls, sang silly songs and made life-like bird noises. Mindi, he’s a keeper for sure. Check out how smitten he is with his beautiful wife!

Counting down the days until this little lady enters this big world! Until then.

Chic in the Snow: Baltimore, MD Photographer

I can not lie. I was fretting about this session. The weather was dreary, the sun was hiding and it was so, so very cold. Kendra and her family were on their way when all of the sudden, it started snowing. A tiny miracle to make an otherwise drab outdoor session positively fabulous. And then I met Kendra who totally took it over the top with her fresh and bold styling. She’s one of those lucky glowing pregnant women!

After we concluded the outdoor portion of the session, we headed back to the studio for my ethereal dream lighting and my classic all black set up. Both of these shots put all the emphasis on the bump, the amazing bump where your new little one grows bigger by the day! Oh how I love these!!!!!

And little sister had her own mini session. Tell me she isn’t positively adorable! She’s going to make a wonderful big sister in a few weeks.

So Kendra, until next time!

Awaiting Colton: Baltimore, MD Maternity Photography

Oh Colton. I love you and you aren’t even here yet!

See Colton’s Daddy just happens to be my little brother Sam and his Momma is my dear sister-in-law Katie. This shoot was particularly special to me and I’m so glad the weather cooperated with Katie’s request for a snowy session.
Nestled back from the main road, sat this quiet little farm with one cool setting after another. A frozen pond (or lake as I kept calling it!), cool blue barns and horses that literally nuzzled my face. I haven’t done an outdoor maternity session in months and this totally inspired me to brave the cold. I even laid down in the snow for a series of shots. Leggings were a poor wardrobe choice.
Here are some sneak peeks of the session and now I get to start planning for the over-the-top newborn shoot!!!!

Awaiting Basil: Bump and Beyond

Instantly connected. That’s how I felt when I met Tia and Bruce. Like I wanted to crash their post-shoot dinner date because they were so much fun to be around. Tia was all baby and her simple shots were some of my all time favorites. And check out her dynamite smile. Apparently I say “just a smidgy” over and over again when shooting. Bruce thought it was borderline insane!

My intuition told me Tia was carrying a boy and well…I was correct! Basil arrived with a head of dark hair and the sweetest, most relaxed demeanor. He was a model newborn, game for any pose including Daddy’s idea to have him hold a Christmas ornament. I like to think he was a pretty terrific early Christmas gift!

Awaiting Cellen: Bump and Beyond

We were back at the garden center, where just a few months before I was capturing her wedding. After an epically awesome childhood friendship, Murissa and I lost touch. It’s been almost surreal for me to be able to witness the amazing direction her life has taken.
Cellen was the little man who completed her family. Despite an hour long drive to get to my studio, he slept like a CHAMP! We did the monster legging set up that Murissa had requested months before (can you tell from her maternity shots that she loves color??!!!) along with a super cute deer set up to pay homage to his Daddy’s love of hunting and outdoor spots.
What will I do with myself now that I’m done with Murissa’s trifecta??? Enjoy the company of a good friend again.
