moments that matter are worth capturing

timeless . precious . forever

Engagement sessions are so much fun for those who are newly engaged or looking to grab a few photos before their wedding to share on their save the dates or at the wedding reception! I recommend the 30 minute session for those with one outfit but if you'd like to have two outfits I would suggest the one hour! Regardless, I offer both options and on location or in studio throughout the year!
FAMILY
Families! I typically book family sessions throughout the year but MAINLY people book sessions during the holidays, which is wonderful but also a mistake. As parents, we rarely get to be in photos, and grandparents don't ever get in any photos. Schedule a family session once a year, not necessarily for Christmas or the Fall or anything like that, but if you want to you can, but its great to have at least ONE family photos from every year to look back on the growth your family is making.
I absolutely LOVE maternity sessions and I encourage ALL moms to do one for each of your babies because you are only pregnant for 9 months and its such a monumental time in your life! My first pregnancy I didn't do a maternity session and I whole heartedly regret it, but for my last two pregnancies I have photos to remember my belly bump! 
Newborn and baby photography is my favorite to do because of how much fun it is to capture these amazing experiences for families! I have FIVE kids too and I love capturing all of those moments. You have lots of different options to capture the first moments of your story and I've outlined just a few of them below! Most clients book a newborn and a 1 year session so they have those two monumental moments captured professionally!

INTIMATE MATERNITY
Some photographers call this 'maternity boudoir' but not all of these photos need to be sexy/revealing in nature which is associate with the term 'boudoir'. These are some of my favorite sessions, all done in studio.

FAMILIES

BALTIMORE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

So, I'm all about family, I mean obviously I have 5 kids, two dogs, and spend the bulk of all my time, like 99% of it, with my family. I know how difficult it is to try to wrangle and get the kids and husband and parents and everyone together to try to get a decent photo, not to mention getting SOMEONE, ANYONE to take a photo of MOM! For the love of god, take photos of the mom please!

Anyway, moving on, I love family photography because its my time to help make the parents at ease, let them know that I get it, I know how difficult it is to get everyone together to capture those memories that are SO important and go by SO fast! I try to capture at least two family portraits a year, one in the spring and one in the fall because everyone is ALWAYS changing and I feel like I'm constantly missing it because of how busy my life is. So being able to get all dressed up and head to someplace special as a family to capture those moments is truly amazing.

And I love all the chaotic mess that is family photography :)

For families with young children, I recommend just the 30 minute session rather than the full 1 hour. If you have a larger family with 8 people or more, you are required to book the full hour.

What to expect

Best Baltimore Family Photographer
01. Pick out your location for the session, I have a blog made for engagement sessions but you can still look through it to see if there are backdrops that match your family session goals too! Check it out HERE
 
02. Schedule it! I have limited weekend availability in the mornings but typically weeknights are the best for me to schedule. The best time of day has got to be sunset, so about 1 hour prior to sunset is the best time, other than that I would reccomend about 2 hours after sunrise. Obviously if none of those work we can make due with the times you have available!
 
03. In order to book, you pay a $100 retainer . You'll email me and then I'll send you the invoice for deposit and a contract which outlines what is specifically included and such.

04. Come to the session, have some fun! I always ask that you wait to bribe your children until the session has started, if they think ahead of time that they are getting a treat they will only be thinking about that treat and it could overwhelm them, lol. I have 5 kids so I know how this is. If they act up or whatever then you can bribe them!!

05. Expect to receive your edited photos in a personal online gallery with free unlimited downloads (NOT WATERMARKED) within 10-15 days after your session. You'll have a full online gallery that you can share with family and friends. 

capture your moments

 

Engagements

You're Engaged!

Congratulations on your engagement and deciding on your forever with each other! How amazing is that?! Seriously! It's difficult to find someone to help you with your taxes so imagine how difficult it is to find someone to live your life with! But you did it!

Now, you want to document and share with the world how super stoked you both are with an engagement shoot! You have SO many options on how to create your perfect memories from your engagement together with something on location, at your home for a lifestyle shoot, or even in studio options! My recommendation is to pick a location that is special to you both, something genuine and authentic to create a killer vibe for your photos! I've had some couples go to their favorite bar for their sessions or even a downtown coffee house! You don't have to pick a huge field in the middle of an epic sunset to make it special. Take a date night out together or head to some fun locations that you think would be perfect! If it's within my travel range or you're willing to pay a small fee for locations outside of the 25 miles radius I'm so down to capture it for you!

The Best Time of Day
Golden hour is the BEST time of day to do your photos.
Which is 1 hour after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset!
If you can't do one of those, just PLEASE don't schedule a time for during the middle of the day. Noon is the worst typically in the summer because it creates harsh light and bags under your eyes.

what to wear?!

these are some of my favorite neutrals for sessions

neutrals.png
I prefer neutral colors, so that you can keep the background in check, but if you want hella vibrant colors, go with it for sure! Meaning, don't just pick what everyone else is wearing or what you "think" you should wear. Try to let me know before hand what you are wearing and I can help you choose!

Think about the weather, if its hot out, don't wear a sweater obviously. Try to stay within your season when choosing your outfit styles!

Keep your outfits simple or go all out, whatever you do just be you!

when I take my own personal photos I keep everything neutral and natural looking because I want to remember what I was like not just how I WANTED to look.
