Harford County and Baltimore Newborn & Maternity Photographer

Yeah, I have a lot of images to share now that I’m making an effort to update this blog, and life and work are starting to settle down and in place…..  There were times in this past year that I felt like I was barely holding onto my sanity as everything was so incredibly busy.

I’m mixing it up – posts for photographers, posts for clients, and personal posts.

Here is a GORGEOUS pregnant couple and subsequently their beautiful newborn baby girl.  When I arrived on location at their home, I immediately could feel their style and see what they were looking for – they wanted a very soft and light look.  I usually gravitate to more rich dark tones in my work, but it was refreshing to try something a little new and go with all “high key” or bright, clean, and airy look… loved these!

Love these natural images.  For this session, I used both natural and studio lighting.  I really have to wonder why so many photographers limit themselves to one or the other.  Having the ability to use natural light, off camera flash/studio lighting , or available light (no matter what that would be) efficiently opens so many more opportunities for amazing photography.


PHOTOGRAPHERS:  Don’t forget – we now have E-books (gives quite a break on the cost) on how to work with all different types of lighting – Studio Lighting Naturally and the Lost Art of Getting Great images in Camera…
