Check out the Rogers family's finished wall portrait love groupings from their Bethesda family photography session at Cabin John Regional Park in Maryland! They chose a total of 12 images for us to print on canvas for their two wall portrait love groupings, and they're the perfect fit for the spaces in their home that we designed them for. Looks amazing, and they will be enjoying these for decades to come... a family photography legacy to be passed on for generations!

And many thanks to Stacy for writing this awesome recommendation of our outdoor family photography services on NextDoor!

I bake. What's your superpower?

 

This boudoir photography session was to be P's first professional photography session, before her cherry blossom family photography session later in the spring. At her planning & design meeting, P mentioned that she enjoyed baking, so of course we had to feature that superpower in her boudoir photography session! P is also very artsy, so I knew she'd like my own super-boudoir photographer gadget - a sort of kaleidoscope that I handmade from three pieces of thin, mirrored plexiglass. Enjoy some of my favorites from P's baking, kaleidoscopic boudoir photography session at our Clarksburg, Maryland photography studio!

Since we began working with Beth and Mike on their pregnancy announcement session, then maternity photography session, then newborn photography session, we've been slowly building and adding to this beautiful baby photography plan love grouping for their family room wall. We have two spaces left in this 7-piece mixed media love grouping, just waiting for two perfect images from Kylie's 12-month baby photography plan session later this fall.

 

This grouping is a mix of canvas gallery wraps and prints on metal and is just stunning! While waiting the year for Kylie to turn one, Beth and Mike can still hang the current artwork in a slightly different configuration (below). I can't wait to see what Kylie is up to and how big she's gotten later this year!

 

Expecting a little one of your own?

And, so very many thanks to Beth for the amazing 5-star review she left of our maternity photography, newborn photography, and baby photography plan services on Google!

"We're a family of five... we have 13-year old and 2-year old sons and an 11-year old daughter. We want to start with a family photography session. We're a goofy family and we don't want any poses that are too serious! After the family photography session, we'll also want either a boudoir photography or bridal photography session, as we've never had either. Your boudoir photography is phenomenal!" Jasper said on our initial phone call and later at their family photography planning and design meeting.

 

As we brainstormed and talked through ideas at their planning & design meeting, Kiki said they didn't want to use any overly "fancy" furniture, as that just wouldn't be them. And so we planned their indoor family photography session at our Maryland photography studio around our hardwood staircase, a cream backdrop with light wood flooring, and most fun of all, a Little Artist Chalkboard drawing theme on a grey backdrop for the entire family (my favorite!).

 

Check out some of my favorite images from their fun and goofy indoor family photography session. Check back later for photos of their finished holiday cards and canvas wall portrait grouping!  And, their outdoor bridal photography session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia is just about scheduled, and we'll be sure to post a peek into that session as well!

 

Does goofy & fun family photography appeal to you?

It was their 10-year wedding anniversary, and Deborah & John wanted a beautiful album of recent portraits of them together to rival their wedding album from 10 years earlier. We had headed to the Eastern Shore to the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michael's, MD, which is where they had spent the night after their wedding, for their portrait photography session. 

 

Then, for something unique and truly different, they selected their favorite image from their anniversary portrait photography session for us to print on metal at a stunning 24x30 size. Simply gorgeous!!!

 

Enjoy photos of some of my favorite spreads from their album and a photo of their metal wall portrait. Their 12x12 size album has a red leather cover and beautiful premium lustre inside paper!  You can also view more images from their wedding anniversary photography session here.

 

Have a wedding anniversary coming up?

Celebrate it in style with couple's portrait photography you'll cherish forever.
