November 13, 2020 The “S” Family | Documentary Portrait Session | Columbia, MD

Meet Ben.Ben is my new favorite little person. He's hilarious. He tells wild stories with big gestures, big inflection and big ideas. Meet Ben's family. Consisting of Mama (Rachel), Papa (Binda) and new baby brother Alex. Two weeks ago I spent an hour with Ben and his family for a documentary portrait session. Never have I ever gotten so much from a one hour session than I had at this one. This family is something special. So much love, so much...

I always love my time with the "F" Family. Karen and Thom came into my life in 2013 when I shot their wedding and I've done family photos for them several times since.

August 16, 2020 A Day in the Life of the “P” Family | Documentary Family Photography | Reading, PA

Last week I spent the day with the P family to capture a day in their lives in this unique, weird time. Life has had to change quite a bit during the pandemic for all families, and it was especially interesting to capture what a day in the life of a 7 and 9 year old looks like when everything needs to happen in and around their home. Thanks, 'Rona. Spending the day with Eleanor, Elliott and Jonathan was a blast....

April 4, 2020 The “F” Family | A Night in the Life | Baltimore Documentary Family Photographer

This is my absolute favorite type of session. The documentary in home sessions with young kids. They're silly, they have short attention spans, and they'll grow out of everything that makes them so weird sooner than later. It's an amazing time to witness, and it's so special to be able to preserve these moments for my families. Life changes and it changes FAST. Portraits are a beautiful way to remember what your kids looked like. These sessions help you remember...
