Family | Salisbury Maryland Family Photographer

Exciting times are ahead for this sweet family.  They are in the process of packing up and moving clear across the country to the west coast.  I will be sad to see them go, but so happy for the opportunities God is going to open up for them.  I was honored to have them call me one last time before they move.  Here are a few of the photos we took yesterday.

9 Months of Sweetness | Assateague Island Baby Photographer

This sweet little man is 9 months old already.  He had a rough day yesterday when we had our session.  Having to be woken from his nap for our session didn’t make things start out smoothly.  Within a short while, he was happy again.  We had to race to beat the sun.  Sweet little man’s mom and dad are going to be getting married soon.  Don’t they make the sweetest couple!?

Cheeky | Salisbury MD Newborn Photographer

Look at those cheeks!  This sweet baby girl was super for me.  She started out not in the littlest bit sleepy, but after some rocking, shushing, and a bottle she was out for the count.  She let me do pretty much anything once she was asleep.  What a precious little baby.

fun | Berlin Maryland Child Photographer

I love when moms know their children and are reasonable in their expectations.  She wanted photos of her three just having fun and being the children that they are.  I was happy to oblige.  We had fun last week picking flowers playing with toys and even seeing the beach.

8 days young | Salisbury Maryland Newborn Photographer

Sweet, sweet baby…  she was tough.  She was not having anything to do with this photography session thing.  Poor baby didn’t like to be on her belly (strike one against me), didn’t like to be moved once asleep (strike two against me), and just wanted to be in her mommy or daddy’s arms (strike three against me).   We gave it a valiant effort and I was able to get some photos.  Take a look at these three.  Can’t tell that she wasn’t happy, can you?  I was really amazed at how much she stayed awake and how alert she was for a baby who was still supposed to be inside her mommy’s belly.

All American Family | Salisbury MD Family Photographer

These are some of my favorite clients.  I love when clients come back year after year.  I met this little man when he was just a few days old, now he is a walking, talking, ball throwing little boy.  He has changed SO much since I took his photos just 6 months ago for his 1 year birthday.  It was great chasing him around and watching him be the sweetest little boy ever.
