For Families, Motherhood & Milestones 

Baltimore Family Photographer & Film maker

Joyful, Authentic Imagery 

From Maternity to graduation. Your family deserves to have images that showcase just how precious those little moments are. Imagine having prints on the wall, albums to pass down, prints films to watch years late. All documenting those special fleeting moments, milestones and time together! That's what I give to you. This is your legacy documented in full authenticity. If your looking for a family photographer in 
Baltimore Maryland then Look no further. 

Documenting life through still images help you capture your story but why not make it extra special by capturing it through another lense, Film. Together we will bring those moments to life through photo and film. Film gives that extra special experience of reliving  the days you will never want to forget through expression, sound and vibrancy.

Ideally You will want to inquire about a newborn session within three months or further out. We will plan for a date within the first two weeks of your expected due date with room for flexibility. Newborn sessions can be done after the first two weeks but its ideal to stay within that timeframe. 

How far in advance should we book for maternity shoots?

Newborn sessions are ideal earlier in the morning or mid afternoon. Base it around feeding time so that baby sleeps and feels more at ease for the session.

When is the best time for Newborn sessions?

Newborn sessions typically take place in your home. This makes the session more personal to the new parents and family. However for family sessions with older children we can opt for a park or a location of your choosing. However I have great spots to recommend.

Where can sessions take place?


It's an honor for me to capture the moments in your life that are so special to you. One of the biggest joys of my career is following along with my past wedding clients as they grow their family and then getting to capture and tell that story.
