Sooooo....Mother Nature has thrown us a bit of a curve ball and we are now narrowing down our dates for Cherry Blossom Spring Sessions. Due to a prolonged cold winter we are thinking Cherry Blossoms will be peaking in our area around April 27th.

Mini Sessions are perfect for updating the family photo and and capturing some beautiful images among the fluffy pink blossoms. With that said, mini sessions aren't ideal for every family, as mini sessions are booked back to back (only 5 minutes between sessions), if you have especially shy children or they take a while to warm up please contact us to discuss booking extra time.

We are a little late to the game this year but we're excited to offer one morning of Valentines Day Mini Sessions on Saturday February 2nd

 You will receive a online gallery with 3 digital images. 10 minute session. Session fee is NON-refundable or transferable towards next mini sessions! If you cannot make it, you are responsible for selling your spot. I am not responsible for children not smiling. I will try my best and sing baby shark as loud as I can, but i cannot guarantee your child will be happy. This set up will not be big enough for more than 3 children, but please do not bring cousins or friends. They will need to purchase their own spot.

We just got these brand new drops in after doing a few studio sessions last year and we are SO excited! We have also partnered with a local Theatre where we will be holding the sessions :) 

We hope you’ll join us, these are going to be beautiful and SO special for your little one! 

**The props in our set may vary a little from what is shown.

The "B" Family Fresh 48 Session 2018, Shady Grove Hospital Potomac Maryland https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2018/8/the-b-family-fresh-48-session-2018-shady-grove-hospital-potomac-maryland Everyone meet baby "T"!!! This precious little girl was born on 8/14/2018 at 5lb 15oz of pure perfection :) I was so lucky to get to go meet her just about 48 hours after her birth at Shady Grove Hospital in Potomac Maryland. We had lots of snuggles with Mommy and Daddy and she even decided to show us her beautiful eyes!! Even more snuggles ensued when her big brother "O" got there after preschool, and OH MY GOSH, these two are adorable together. As you can see there is no shortage of love for this beautiful little girl and her brother is absolutely over the moon and already is showering her in hugs and kisses. At just a week over 3-years-old he's already perfected telling everyone about her and how he wants to protect her (cue the waterworks and baby fever!!). 

 

Can we also talk about how amazing Mom looks?!?! She is absolutely glowing, I wonder if baby "T" is going to get Mom's beautiful wavy chestnut colored hair <3 

 

I can't wait to see them next week for baby "T's" newborn session and maybe some lifestyle photos the week after that.

I have had the most beautiful babies and parents to photograph in the last few weeks!! The stepmom of this Mommy was one of my first photo lesson client years ago and I was so excited to hear from her when her grandson was born to do his newborn session <3 

 

This little boy and his family were the sweetest to work with and I think you can tell by the glow on "C"'s  Mom's face just how excited and overjoyed she is, she is already an incredible Mom!! The image of Dad with "C" on the bed just might be one of my favorites, it was completely candid and I got it while I was getting ready to do photos in another room, I feel the love and emotion in that image speaks volumes!

 

It was such a pleasure and I look forward to seeing this family again as "C" grows!!

The "G" Family Twin Newborn Session 2018, Great Falls Virginia https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2018/3/twins-newborn-photographer-howard-county-maryland  

Oh man, I love my job. I love being a baby photographer. What is better than a sweet newborn baby to photograph? TWO sweet newborn babies to photograph! I love getting to snuggle new little souls all the time, especially when it is two new souls at once! Twins are so special. I love photographing them.  I love how each baby is such a blessing in this world, I love how they each have their own unique personality (even at only a few days old), I love  everything!  Its fun to watch how they already interact with each other and the difference in their personalities (or one who is so happy to sleep while the other is more reluctant ;) ).

 

This session was so much fun, nestled against beautiful woods in Great Falls Virginia the "G" family has the most beautiful home with gorgeous natural light! Mom and Dad were just glowing while cuddling their babies, the overwhelming love for these two little girls was abundantly clear throughout their whole session. The girls nursery is absolutely beautiful and we just had to get a few shots of Mom in her newly finished formal living room with the girls, I have a feeling they will spend a lot of time cuddling in that space!

 

It was a pleasure, and thank you Ashley for choosing me to photograph this special time! I hope that these photos will act as a great reminder of just how little they were :)

The "B" Family Fall Family Session 2017, Woodstock MD https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2017/10/the-b-family-fall-family-session-2017-woodstock-md I have been so blessed to meet so many new client in the last few weeks (like 15 families!)! A week ago I ventured to Woodstock MD (envision farms and windy beautiful roads and driveways lined with changing trees) and met this beautiful family! We had so much fun with their beautiful little girl and their home and property are a photographers heaven <3 Baby "N" was so ready for her 8-month-old (almost 9 month) photoshoot, she absolutely rocked it. Her amazing smile and sea blue eyes made every shot effortless, and it doesn't hurt that her parents rocked the camera as well! Can't wait to see this family again around the holidays and for baby "N"s birthday in January!

"E" Family Newborn Session 2017 https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2017/5/-e-family-newborn-session-2017 When it comes to newborn sessions, lifestyle is quickly becoming my favorite, especially when there are older siblings involved. There is nothing quite like seeing a family and an older sibling interact with their new best friend in the comfort of their own home!! Lifestyle sessions allow for a great mix of journalistic style shots combined with some posed ones :) Lifestyle newborn sessions are also great because they can be done up to 6 weeks or so of life, whereas studio newborn sessions are ideally done in the first 2 weeks of life. 

 

It was such a joy seeing this family again after almost 3 years!! Three years ago this August I met this amazing family for both their maternity session and a few weeks later their older daughters newborn session, it was so fun to catch up and see how big sister is adapting to having her little sister in the picture. Last weekend my husband and I drove out to Kent Island to document their family for the morning in our last newborn session before we welcome our own new addition this coming week (hopefully!!) I'll be taking maternity leave with a few exceptions until mid-July.

 

Here is an overview of their session, can't wait to get the rest finished!!

"C" Family Newborn Session https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2017/2/-c-family-newborn-session-2017 Had such an great time with this adorable baby boy a little over a week ago who was just 5 days new!! 

You could already feel the tremendous love for him in the home, just seeing the way his  parents and grandparents look at him can make your heart swell. (To protect the family's privacy only photos of the little guy will be displayed in this blog.) The trunk used in the shoot is a family heirloom that means a lot to the family was so happy to be able to use it to create a timeless image the family will treasure :)

He was so excited about his session that he wanted to be awake for most of it, but he did get super sleepy on and off and let us get some great sleepy shots, don't you just love his squishy little cheeks and beautiful baby blues!

Dana and Andrew are Married, Old Angler's Inn, Potomac Maryland, June 25, 2016 https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/7/dana-and-andrew-are-married-old-anglers-inn-june-25th-2016 Two weeks ago on June 25th we were honored to capture the wedding of two beautiful people! There were so many photos that I wanted to show for the sneak peak, but the html data was too big for my blog post, I had to cut more than 100 images (which as a photographer is really hard as I had already trimmed down what to post)! SO I also made a view which can be viewed here: Dana & Andrew :) 

The day of the wedding the Bride and Groom got ready at the City Center in Washington DC in a beautiful and modern style apartment, it had the most beautiful lighting due to the big open windows! It was absolutely perfect for some getting ready shots of Dana as well as photographing her beautiful dress, shoes and ring!! While Dana was hidden away getting her hair done we had some time to capture some portraits of Andrew before we headed up to the amazing garden style roof for our first look! Isn't Dana absolutely Stunning?! 

The beautiful and intimate ceremony and reception took place just up the Potomac River at Old Angler's Inn, which a beautifully nestled treasure on MacArthur Blvd in Potomac Maryland. The lush greenery at the venue and beautiful C&O Canal provided the most amazing spot for some Bride and Groom portraits, the lighting that evening couldn't have been any better! The love and connection between these two is really something special, and it was so fun working with them as we braved a bit of heat to get some great shots <3

Not only are these two people perfect together but they also know how to throw a great party, even being introduced by a Mariachi band!! 

This is just a sneak of D&A's special day, but I feel that these images show a story in themselves, one of LOVE, LAUGHTER and FRIENDSHIP, which are key elements in any marriage. The love in these images seems so incredibly evident to me, hope you can feel the love as well <3

Happy First Birthday to Conner! https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/6/happy-first-birthday-to-conner-maryland-maternity-birth-newborn-photographer Happy Happy Happy 1st Birthday to Conner!!!

 

Wishing the happiest of birthday's to this adorable little boy! Can't believe it's already been a year since I was able to document your birth as well as your newborn photos :) 

 

I have done a lot of sessions in the last year, more than I can count (or my hard drives can handle), but I can honestly say that Conner's birth, and the emotion that day was filled with might be one of my absolute favorite things I have done so far. There is a certain "rawness" and emotion in birth photography that can't be replicated or staged. I was so honored to be welcomed into this family and capture the birth of this little boy as well his older sister Emily meeting him for the first time the next day :)

 

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3

They had recently moved to the area and were referred to me by another one of my amazing clients :) Part of the photo session was to celebrate baby boy "L" turning 1 one in March and little girl "E" turning 3 the following week!! They were absolutely the cutest little kids, the affection that can be seen between the kids absolutely melted my heart <3 

I couldn't get enough of their bright blue eyes and super blonde hair, and the expressions that they gave me were priceless!

The "D" Family Spring Session :) https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/6/the-d-family-spring-session A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family! Not only were the kids super sweet, funny, and charasmatic, but they were so adorable, playful and co-ordinated!! Their parents did an amazing job of picking outfits and a color scheme that was co-hesive without being plain and I LOVE it!! Don't they look amazing! Planning outfits for your family portraits are a huge part of how the final product turns out :) 

 

Working with siblings is so much fun, especially when you can see the different personalities in each one!

From his Mom's pregnancy announcement, to his newborn session to his 1st Birthday portrait session and cake smash session today.

 

We had such a perfectly beautiful day for his cake smash, the rain in the DMV finally let up so that we could get the beautiful look of an outdoor session :) 

I'm so in love with this little guy! He was totally hamming it up as he decided to climb on our little rocking chair instead of sitting, he was also totally twinning in outfits and hats with his dad (check back when the full gallery blog is posted to see!), to being SO excited by his cake and the sugar rush that followed :)

Here is just a sneak from his session today, I could resist! More to come after the gallery is completed :)

Ricardo & Anishka Married April 27, 2016 | Howard County Courthouse Ellicott City, Maryland https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/4/ricardo-anishka-married-howard-county-courthouse-ellicott-city-maryland  

They’ve been together for years and years. They got engaged a year and a half ago around Thanksgiving and one thing after another kept getting in the way. Then it hit them, why wait? Why wait when we can just head to the courthouse and have our closest friends come with us. So thats exactly what they did. They had a beautiful Howard County Courthouse Wedding ceremony followed by a dinner at Alexandra's in Turf Valley. The only stipulation to this small wedding was that it was captured professionally and thats when Ricardo called me! Although it was a bit rainy in the morning they were blessed with a partly cloudy wedding day – which is perfect for stunning photos! They even had the most beautiful bubble exit from the ceremony! Stay turned for a full post after all the images are processed :)

A: We COMPLETEY understand the hesitation of taking the baby out of the house so soon after coming home and advise you to ask your physician or pediatrician about any concerns. Our studio is cleaned after every use (children, portraits, newborns, etc) and all of our blankets, wraps etc are washed with Dreft after each use. We take the health and safety of your babies very seriously and want this to be a fun and comfortable experience for all of you. 

 

Q: Do you offer "grow with me" packages? 

A: Yes!! And as you'll be getting the model call for free we recommend our 3 session package which could include a combination of  3-month, 6-month, 9-month and 1-year photos! These packages begin at $1200.

 

Q: I love how this sounds but I've already booked a newborn session with another professional photographer, can I still do this?

A: We are so happy that you already had plans to have your babies photographed! We are looking for a family that hasn't booked with another photographer already (and will sign a binding contract saying so), while we really appreciate your interest we want to make sure we are being fair to our fellow business owners! We'd love to see you in the future for your photographic needs!

 

Q: What about safety, do you have training?

A: As a professional photographer I take my craft very seriously, I have been through years of rigorous training to learn how to handle and pose babies properly, including training on their anatomy all poses are done with safety as a top priority and at no time will your baby be put in a compromising position. 

 

Q: I have other questions, what should I do to get them answered? 

A: Please fill out the form below and we will be in touch!


 

Thank you for your interest in my newborn model call! Please fill out and submit the form below and I will contact you within a few days to let you know if your family has been chosen.

As Spring is almost here we are thrilled to be planning some exciting changes for the coming months (hint, it involves a studio!) smile emoticon To kick it off we are doing a model call for at least 1 set of newborn twins!! If you are expecting twins or know someone who is in the next month, or maybe the twins came early, we'd love to speak with them (the parents not the twins smile emoticon )

 


 


 

The session will take place in my studio and be 1-2 hours in length. All newborn clothing and props will be provided.

To be eligible parent/baby must:

Be between 4-12 days old 
Sign a model release, allowing images to be used
Be available for a weekday Monday or Wednesday portrait session.
In return, you will receive a complimentary session & 3 high resolution digital images with print release.

There is no obligation to purchase, however additional products and digital images are available for purchase.


We understand that any baby brings a big change to a family but twins can bring double! We know you will have questions about how the session will go and how the images of the babies and your family will be used. Here are a few questions that we thought parents may have:

 

Q: How old do the twins need to be for the session

A: If the babies were born at full term we will schedule the session within the first 4-12 days of life, please contact us directly if the babies were born early

 

Q: Where will the session be held? Can it be held in our home?

A: For this model call the session will be held in our new studio in Ellicott City. If you'd like to book a session in your home we'd love to talk to you about our in-home sessions and packages, at the moment we are not conducting model calls in-home. 

 

Q: Can I give you examples of things I've seen on Pinterest that I'd like to have done, or can I bring props and things?

A: For this model call we will by styling the session with poses, blankets, props, wraps, hats, bonnets, and other things that we are excited to use for the session, if you'd like to add something to the session it will be done at the discretion of the photographer after all the pre-planned setups are completed. We cannot guarantee any specific poses or props being used, if this is important to you we'd love to speak with you about booking a full priced session. 

 

Q: What will the images be used for?

A: As this is a model call you are allowing us to use the images of your children and family in marketing, advertising, and any other promotional materials we see fit, we will never use the names of your children or family in any blog post or marketing materials. In our blog posts we like to use Baby "B" or the "B" Family. 

 

Q: What do I get for my time? And how long will the session last? 

A: The session will last between 2-3 hours and you will receive your choice of 3 digital images with print release from an online gallery. If you'd like to purchase additional files or products that will be an option and we will talk over our price list with you. Our gift prints begin at $25 and our digital files begin at $50. We also offer different packages and digital packages. 

 

Q: What do we need to do to prepare for the session?

A: After a contract and model release is signed we will discuss preparations instructions for a successful session, you will receive these in written form as well :)

 

Q: Can I have more than 3-digital files for our time? Is it negotiable?

A: As stated above the session will come with your choice of 3 files included for your time and you may purchase additional products and files. If having more up front is important to you, we'd be happy to book a full priced session with you!

Baby J's 1st Birthday Party! Where the Wild Things are :) https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/4/baby-js-1st-birthday-party-where-the-wild-things-are Let the Wild Rumpus Start!!!

Last week I had the honor of documenting baby J's 1st birthday party, and it was full of wild things! It was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day in Rockville Maryland, there had been predictions of rain for the day, but Mother Nature gave us a real treat with beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures. His parents did an amazing job with the decorations, theme and food! It was so much fun! Little J was so excited for his party, you can see him laughing and giggling throughout, he even dressed up as the CUTEST little wild thing for some photos :) 

The welcoming atmosphere and love that is felt among the family and friends in attendance was beautiful, little J is lucky to have some super fun cousins, grandparents and lots of amazing friends <3 <3

I'm sure we are all looking forward to warmer/longer days, the grass turning green again, the flowers blooming and the sweet smell of Cherry Blossoms in the air!! 

Just a few days ago I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet, smart, smiley and charasmatic 6-year-old little girl for her Easter Mini Session/Spring photo session. She was so much fun to work with, and I loved watching her interact with her adorable pups, the look between them in a few of the photos gave me all the feels :) 

Spring is the perfect time for getting update photos of your kiddos!! We'll be doing several Spring mini sessions leading up to the beginning of Summer, don't hesitate to get in contact as they tend to be very popular and book up quickly :)

Renee & Richard, Bridges on Kent Narrows Wedding, Sunday February 7, 2016 https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/2/renee-richard-bridges-on-kent-narrows-wedding-sunday-february-7-2016 Three weeks ago today we were honored to capture the wedding of two amazing people who have a very special place in my heart :) I first met Renee and Richard when I went out to their beautiful home on Kent Island to conduct a DSLR photo lesson, I was immediately drawn to their warmth and caring natures and intense love for each other. A few months later Renee told me the exciting news and asked if I'd photograph their special day, and of course I said yes :) We did their engagement session on a beautiful fall day at Terrapin park and before we knew it the big day has arrived!

The day of the wedding the Bride and Groom got ready at their beautiful home on Kent Narrows with their families before doing a first look on the upper balcony of their home, despite being Winter, the pair had the perfect weather for some outdoor photos :) The beautiful and intimate ceremony and reception took place just a few miles from their home at Bridges on Kent Narrows and I couldn't image a more perfect setting for a lovely winter wedding! You won't believe who made the cake! Renee is not only stunning and among the most amazing people I've ever met, she is also a FABULOUS baker!! She made her own wedding cake and it was not only beautiful but DELICIOUS! I can't say that many brides are able to manage everything leading up to their wedding AND make their own wedding cake...it really just speaks to have amazing and special she really is <3

This is just a sneak of R&R's special day, but I feel that these images show a story in themselves, one of LOVE, LAUGHTER and FRIENDSHIP, which are key elements in any marriage. I love both of these two so much and hope you can feel the love as well <3

Baby "O" 6 Months Old! https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/2/baby-O-6-months-old This little boy and his parents have a super special place in my heart and I was so excited to spend the day with them and capture some photos of this adorable little guy!! It's amazing to see how much he has really grown since his newborn session. We spent some time in his room, which is decorated in the cutest nautical theme, complete with his name on the wall that his beautiful and crafty Mommy made before he was born. All the shelving in the walls was done by his dad who is a master carpenter, I think I'll be calling him when I eventually need a nursery ;) It was the perfect place to start, and isn't his outfit adorable! 

 

Nothing compares to the love that can easily be felt in this family, even from baby O's older brother Jake, who happily gives him kisses when given the chance. I had so many favorites in this gallery that it's hard to find a favorite, but baby "O" having some of his first solid foods and the excitement in his eyes might be in contention with being read to by his mom and dad and some cuddle time on the bed. 

I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them <3 <3

Baby "NF" Newborn Session https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/2/baby-nf-newborn-session A few weeks ago, after many reschedules due to colds and rain and travel I had the opportunity to meet with this beautiful family for their maternity session just 2 weeks before they welcomed their beautiful new son into the world. Then, 48-hours after he was born we did a Fresh 48 session at the hospital, where I got to see the love that already was so evident for this precious little guy :) Just 8 days after he was born it was time for his newborn session, and he was such a trooper. Although he didn't want to sleep through most of it (eventually I got him to give in :) ), his adorable bright eyes were such a treat to photograph and watch as I worked with him. 

Here is just a sneak peek into his newborn session, check back in a few weeks for a full post from all of the sessions with his family :)

Yes, he has BEAUTIFUL long lashes and amazingly curly baby hair :)

 

 

So in love with these adorably perfect cheeks and baby rolls!

Baby "E" Newborn Session https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/2/baby-e-newborn-session A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful little boy's parents in downtown Ellicott City for their maternity session, it was so much fun and the love between baby "E"'s parents is incredible. That love was so incredibly evident and my heart swelled seeing the new parents with their little one. 

I had the honor of photographing baby "E" at just 9-days new on February 13th, and he is absolutely perfect! His parents each have different things that they love, his Dad shared with me that he loves Star Wars and his Mom loves Harry Potter, so I made sure to include setups that would be special to each :) The beautiful blue, white and yellow cap as well as the blue cap in the last photo were knitted by his Grandmother. 

Hope you enjoy this sneak peek inside his newborn session.

BB Newborn Session- 7 days new https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2016/2/bb Had such an amazing time with this adorable baby boy today who is just 7 days new, I couldn't resist posting a little (ok ok HUGE) sneak from his session day!

You can already feel the tremendous love for him in the home, just seeing the way his sister and parents look at him can make your heart swell. 

He was so excited about his session that he wanted to be awake for most of it, but in the end he did get super sleepy and let us get some great sleepy shots, don't you just love his squishy little cheeks and beautiful baby blues!

There is one priceless gem in this gallery, can you find it? ;)

Fall Family Session Brookside Gardens October 2014 https://www.appleofmyeyephotographyanddesign.com/blog/2014/10/fall-family-session-brookside-gardens-october-2014 Fall is absolutely one of my favorite times of the year! The leaves are changing, the temperatures are superb and it's a great time for Fall Family Photo Sessions!

This morning I had the opportunity to work with this beautiful family at Brookside Gardens! After some worries about the weather given all the rain on Saturday, I awoke this morning to cloudless blue skies and perfect temperatures.  Ava, the little girl of the family, was absolutely working the camera, she did an amazing job for only being 2 1/2. Here is a sneak peek for the family, can't wait to edit the rest of the session!
