Baltimore Baby And Child Photographer | Precious Moments

Catonsville Maryland Baby Child Photographer

I’m sorry I’ve been out of town for the past week, but the sweet little one shown above *finally* made her arrival into this world and we couldn’t wait to meet her!  I haven’t been home yet for a full 24 hours, but the emails have been answered, the phone calls returned and I believe I am up to date on photography inquiries for maternity and newborn sessions.  If you’re pregnant and expecting a baby within the next couple months, please contact me sooner than later – my calendar is filling up fast!  I usually recommend maternity portraits between 32-35 weeks gestation and newborn sessions are best done when baby is less than 2 weeks old.  Reminder: I do portrait sessions both on location and in my home studio.  If you have any questions, use the contact button above.  I typically answer emails within 24 hours.  Thanks again for your patience!

Catonsville MD Professional Newborn Baby Photographer | Welcome Baby!

Baltimore Newborn Baby On Location PhotographerEllicott City MD Newborn Baby PhotographyHoward County MD Newborn Baby PhotographyClarksville MD On Location Newborn Baby PhotographyOn location photography sessions certainly have their perks – especially during newborn baby portrait sessions!!!  Big brothers and sisters are in their home element and can play while I set things up.  I’ll pose the new addition and photograph them, then add in the siblings.  Kids can go play some more, rinse and repeat.  I have found it to be one recipe for a stress free photo session.

March 8, 2012 - 12:12 am

There is some planning in every photography session.  There are a plethora of emails exchanged prior to the session, making sure all participants are on the same page.  In the studio, I make sure I have the right backdrops hanging and on location I need to pack the right props, make sure my batteries are charged and double check the directions – whether I’m headed to a newborn photo session in Columbia or a family portraits in Towson.  But this session took a little extra planning – OK, A LOT of extra planning!   This GORGEOUS couple had to wait a but longer than usual for their little bun in the oven and I am absolutely positive she is worth the wait!  I know she will be welcomed with much love when she finally makes her arrival – just about any day now… I can’t hardly wait to meet her!
