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!)
Mr. and Mrs. G had told me at their family photography planning & design meeting that their 5-year old son HATES to be photographed and always hides from the camera. So I knew that my assistant and I would really have to focus on him and cajole him into cooperation.
Sure enough, at the beginning of their studio family portraits at our Clarksburg photography studio, little G refused to come out of the bathroom. When he finally emerged and we sat him down in the studio area, he cried and hid his face in his dad's chest. But then, out came our talking stuffed animals (voiceovers courtesy of my awesome assistant) and both kids began to smile and laugh. And that broke the ice! From then on, we smoothly sailed through the family portrait session, emerging with a host of relaxed, personality-filled studio family portraits that this Northern Virginia family will cherish for generations to come!
Does your child hate being photographed?
Have no fear! Our family photographer & assistant are here!
(Plus, it's oh so very cold out there.
Come in from the cold to our Maryland photography studio!)
Melissa's family was visiting Rockville for the holidays, and so the five of them came in from the cold for holiday family portraits in our Germantown photography studio. While Melissa's siblings and parents wanted digital files from their holiday family photography session to create their own memories, Melissa really wanted a love grouping of metal prints to hang on the wall of her home. Check out the finished grouping! The largest wall portrait is 20x30 in size, and the others are 8x12, 12x12, and 8x12. View more images from this family's home for the holidays photography session here.
Will your parents, children, or other family be home for the holidays?
Q had explored boudoir photographers in Northern Virginia in the past, so boudoir photography was something she'd always wanted to do. This particular boudoir photography session, was a gift from her boyfriend, and what a gift it makes for both him AND her!
Q looks so incredibly beguiling and alluring in all of her classy boudoir photos. I love each and every one of these, but as a Northern Virginia boudoir photographer who strives for artistry and creativity, I'm especially proud of the set I did with the colored gels, which add a red highlight to her hair and the edge of her body and floor and blue to the background. These were some of Q's favorites too! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Beguiling boudoir photography is the gift for the both of you.
You deserve the gift of boudoir photography, and you deserve it now.
As an author and motivational speaker, Tyecia had mentioned her website to me on our phone call, so of course, when we got off the phone, I headed over to find out more about her in preparation for our professional headshot session. And I was impressed in reading about not only the challenges she has faced throughout her life (foster child, drugs, early teenage pregnancy, being stabbed, incarceration...) but how she has OVERCOME them in order to be launching her own radio show in October!
Tyecia had promised to share with me the radio show promotional flyer once the designer had finished it and added the professional headshot I created for her, and it looks absolutely AMAZING! I just had to share the flyer with you, as well as another one of my favorite professional headshots from her studio photography session. Tune in to the show, and in the meantime, learn more about Tyecia here!
