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.

Absolute Sweetness | Salisbury MD Newborn Photographer

This sweetie was the first newborn I had the opportunity to photograph since I went to a “newborn” photography workshop.  I learned a lot and brought many of new ideas away from the workshop.  This sweet baby girl was absolutely the perfect subject to photograph to try out these new techniques.  She slept like a champ and although she started off her session with a bang (the first blanket I put her on had to be washed). Take a look at some of the photos we got during our morning together.

Boys | Nanticoke MD Children’s Photographer

These boys took a little bit of time to warm up to me, but once they did they were gold.  They are quite the little explorers showing me snails on the sea grass and things around the yard.  I love the water by this great house!  It was a hot morning, but the breeze off of the water was divine.  Take a look at a few photos from our time together on Monday.

The portrait of the boy in the grass is brilliant. Looks like an oil painting from a master painter in the 1800′s.
