There aren't words to express how much we've enjoyed watching Mr. Silver-Haired Cutie grow. This was our fifth time photographing him and his mom & dad since his Germantown newborn photography session 3 years ago!  Mr. Silver-Haired Cutie began with one of our baby photography plans, then continued on to our Watch Me Blossom annual family photography plan.  I already can't wait - next year will be his third Watch Me Blossom session!

 

Since last year, Mr. Silver-Haired Cutie moved to a BEAUTIFUL new home in Ijamsville, MD with a ton of space for both him and his dog sibling, Eden, to run around and explore.  It made such an AMAZING location for their fall family photos this year!  I wouldn't mind doing next year's fall family photos at their Ijamsville home as well!

 

It was hard to choose, but here are some of my favorites of their Ijamsville, MD fall family photos.  They just picked up their printed artwork... check back later for a photo of their 30x40 canvas wall portrait!

Get priceless family photography that will become a legacy to be treasured for generations.

 

Professional family photography is a priceless investment that grows with each year that passes!

We had met Alysoun two years earlier when she needed equine photography (and dog photography) at her beautiful rescue ranch in Thurmont, Maryland.  We had so enjoyed working with Alysoun the last time around, so I was so very delighted to receive this e-mail from her:

 

"I have recently begun working with a matchmaking service, and they recommended that I get some high quality [dating] photos of myself. Of course, I immediately thought of you for this task!"

 

And so we headed back to her Thurmont, Maryland ranch to photograph Alysoun, both individually and with her equine and dog companions.  She had adopted a new dog since we'd seen her two years earlier!  Here are some of our favorites from her outdoor dating photography session.  Keep scrolling down to catch a glimpse of the printed artwork that we also made for her!

Two years ago, Alysoun's primary photography session goal was to get a series of canvas wall art to decorate her ranch house.  This time, her primary goal was to get a series of dating photos to be placed online.  But regardless, wasn't it a great opportunity to get some wall art with her new dog and two dogs together?  Check out the finished canvas wall portraits that we made for her!

 

And Alysoun, please accept a big THANK YOU for the amazing online review of our dating photography services!

 

We'll help you meet your perfect match.

A month or two ago, I blogged about Steve's fall family photography session at Sugarloaf Mountain.  Well, when I met Steve, he was also designing a new website for his intellectual property law firm and needed new attorney business portraits for his website, a book cover, business cards, and other marketing materials.  

 

We brainstormed about potential locations for his attorney business portraits, and in the end, chose the US Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, VA, as a perfectly fitting backdrop for his work as an intellectual property attorney.  Here are some of our favorites from his Alexandria, VA attorney business portrait session.  And many thanks to Steve for writing the awesome review below about our DC business portrait photography services for attorneys and other professionals!

 

Starting a new law firm?  Designing a new website?  We're here to help.

My new glass sphere (photography toy) arrived, and I was eager to try it out on these adorable fur babies.  What do you think of this creative cat photography?  Have some fur babies (or non-fur) babies of your own you'd like to try this out on?  Whether you're searching for a creative pet photographer or are seeking to learn photography, I can help!

This maternity photography session at our Clarksburg, MD photography studio was a gift for this expecting couple, and what a beautiful gift maternity photography makes!  This couple came in from Annapolis, MD to our studio with three different outfits for the three setups we had chosen together for their maternity photography session.  Enjoy some of my favorites from their session, and congratulations to them on their soon-to-be new addition to the family!

 

Expecting a little one?  Capture priceless memories of this special time in your life and create treasured family heirlooms for your children, grand children, and great-grandchildren to come!

 

(Brrrr, if it's too cold for you out there, then you can still  enjoy the

cozy warmth of our Maryland photography studio!)
