Sophie | Salisbury MD Newborn Photographer

Amazing smiley Sophie was such a joy to work with in the studio.  At only seven weeks old, she put on quite the show for me smiling at every chance.  She surprised me by falling fast asleep and allowing me to take some sleepy shots of her.  Take a look at a few photos from our time together.

Madeleine {6 days} | Salisbury MD Newborn Photographer

Sweet Madeleine fought hard to stay awake this morning for her session.  She didn’t give in until she couldn’t fight another minute.  Then she slept, and slept good.  Take a look at a few of the photos from her session this morning.

I’m back!!

Ok, I’ve been on hiatus long enough from blogging.  I’m back and going to be posting a lot more.  I’ve had quite a few of you mention that you’ve missed seeing my photos here.  Those mentions warmed my heart.  I love hearing that people enjoy seeing the photos I take.   I’ll start off, this late evening with one photo of my sweet three year old, Lily.  She (out of my three girls) is usually the most willing to get in front of my camera without complaining.  This photo was taken this past week while we were visiting family in New York.  She had been swimming for most of the day before we ran outside to catch the least remnants of the sun.  So, here begins my return to blogging, wish me luck for keeping up with it!

Jenny - July 16, 2012 - 5:17 pm

Yay! :)

Beth - July 17, 2012 - 10:56 pm

YESSSSS. I would see the fb pic here and there, hurry to the blog as usually I can catch 3 or 4 of the kiddo from fb and nada!! I hope you enjoyed your break, but I’m glad you are back in the bloggin’ biz!!

Big Brother, Little Sister | Salisbury Maryland Newborn Photographer

He was so good with her.  Being young when a new baby comes into your house to disrupt everything is stressful for most little people and things are no different at his house. That said, big brother did such an amazing job posing and caring for his baby sister. He really blew all of my expectations out of the water.  They are both just so sweet.  Take a look at some of the photos we got during our time together recently.

If You’re Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands | Salisbury Maryland Baby Photographer

One year old and on the move!  Baby girl made me work hard to get her photos.  She practically ran from one thing to another exploring and finding things MUCH more interesting than my camera.  Singing was the one thing that had consistent results and gave me some eye contact.  Her hair is gorgeous and so long for a one year old. Mom said she was born with a bunch and it continues to grow and grow!  I know mom has been anxious to see these.  I hope you enjoy them.
