Hanover, Maryland Newborn Studio Photographer | Norah

Baby Norah is finally here! I have had the joy of working with this sweet family for our holiday sessions and then her stunning maternity shoot! It is so special to me to get to follow their journey through the excitement of their newborn arriving! I couldn’t be happier for them!

About Norah’s Newborn Session

 

It can always be a little nerve-racking going into a newborn shoot. You never know what mood they will be in, but sweet Norah was so calm and was already showing off her little personality! Big sister, Hannah, was loving every second she got to spend with her. It was so sweet to get to watch them interact. I can already tell that these two will be best friends forever!

After taking lots of individual shots and sister time, I knew I had to gather the whole family around. This is where the real magic began! The love that this family has for one another is undeniable, and I feel so blessed to have gotten to join in on it for the day! I can’t wait to see this family again soon! I know that a one-year-old birthday update would be so much fun!

Baltimore Baby Milestone Photographer | Tucker

Tucker is such a cutie!  I had such a great time capturing images of this Baltimore baby to commemorate his first birthday. We decided on a nautical themed cake smash session.  I was able to get some great photos of mom and dad with Tucker as a family and also of them individually with him.  He is such a smiley little boy and his joy fills up the room.  As the photographer, he made my job really easy.

 About this Nautical Cake Smash Session

Since Tucker is not a huge fan of sweet things, we also incorporated a spaghetti slinging portion to his session along with his cake smash.  He could not wait to dig into that spaghetti.  It was a lot of fun watching him with the wooden utensils and all the strands of spaghetti. 
 
Although, not usually a fan of sweets, Tucker did not hesitate to dig right into his cake.  He really loved the blueberries.  The photos of him putting the cake in his mouth and smiling with a big mouthful are some of my favorites. 
 
After the cake smash, I always do a clean up “bath”.  For Tucker, we designed a bath on the beach to go along with his theme.  This little boy is so expressive and made this photographer’s day.  His smile is contagious and my cheeks hurt after his pictures.

Baltimore Newborn Luxury Photographer | Aleksandr

Sweet baby Aleksandr and his family were such a pleasure to photograph.  This Columbia, MD newborn was such a sweet subject.  Mom and dad did not know if Aleksandr was going to be a boy or girl until his arrival!  They are thrilled to add a little boy to their growing family. 

About Aleksandr’s Newborn Session

He joins Lydia, who seemed no less than thrilled to wear the honor of Big Sister.  The pictures of the two of them in bed together are really special.  You can see just how intrigued by her little brother she is!  With two kids under two, life is busy for this brood.  But they have lots of support from friends and family. Aleksandr was such a great model. 

He gave me a range of expressions, including some really adorable smiles!  And the pictures of him snuggled up to the tiny teddy bear will make your heart melt.  He has such a thoughtful face.  His expression was constantly varying.  I wonder what he was dreaming about.  That pouty top lip and pronounced crease above his chin are sweet, special characteristics to this little guy. 

The pictures of him cuddled up with mom and dad are priceless.  The newborn phase of life is so fleeting and as a photographer, I love being able to capture those moments for families forever. Baltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerBaltimore Newborn Luxury PhotographerYour baby photographer, is located Elkridge Maryland, between Washington DC and Baltimore, MD making Kat Forder Photography convenient for families of all sizes.  We are a full-service newborn and child portrait studio with a team of photographers, each with their own specialty.  On location we work most often in Baltimore County, Columbia, Maryland, Catonsville, Severn, Annapolis, Howard County, Montgomery County, and of course we work in-studio as well.

Oh wow! What a fun session this was! Miss A just turned one years old, and this was her first birthday “cake smash” session. However, as you’ll notice, there’s no cake involved in these photos; we actually used yogurt paint instead of cake! No way would we let her eat actual paint. Now, I know that that might be what it looks like, but I promise it’s completely safe and edible yogurt! How fun!!!
Her parents had told me that she loved yogurt, so we came up with the idea to use colorful yogurts as paint for her session! It worked out just perfectly! She was absolutely loving it! Being able to make beautiful art with yogurt that she could eat was so much fun for Miss A, and we were able to capture every emotion of her excitement for turning one years old! Even her older brother and sister joined in on the fun, creating their own pieces of art in the background with the edible paint!

About this Session

For those of you who follow us, you may recognize this family as I’ve done several prior sessions with them before! The session we did before this one was the awesome circus-themed shoot! We did some more fun make-believe shots with the kiddos towards the end of this session as well! They got into the spirit once again with all the photo props; from Cat in the Hat and Bob the Builder to a silly clown and cowgirl, they became each character and brought life to the photos!
What a blast this family is! I absolutely love working with them; they always bring so much fun, personality, and energy to the studio and their photos! It is truly a blessing and privilege to work with such an amazing family, and I can’t wait for our next session together!

Baltimore Maternity Fine Art Photographer | Lucinda

Lucinda and her family were beaming with excitement and happiness for their future baby boy! And how gorgeous is this beautiful mama-to-be! Wow! She is just glowing! I absolutely love her in all our lovely soft, flowy dresses we offer for our maternity sessions! Man! She really rocked this shoot!

About this Maternity Session

Lucinda and her family were so much fun to work with! They were so full of joy and happiness that I couldn’t help but smile and be overcome with excitement for them during such a sweet and precious time while photographing them! Lucinda had hoped to include our area’s cherry blossoms in her maternity session; however, it was a particularly difficult challenge to do so this year because of the crazy weather we’ve been having. But luckily, we managed to find gorgeous pockets of green and the last of the cherry blossoms. The weather was beautiful, and the lighting was just as breathtaking as this elegantly, glowing mama-to-be. This mama will have her maternity images in one of our small, unbound albums. I hope she loves it and will cherish these memories and moments forever.
Pregnancy is just so beautiful and an absolutely special time in a mother’s life. Lucinda wears it so gracefully. I couldn’t have been happier to capture such a precious and special moment in time for this amazing family, and I cannot wait to meet Lucinda’s little boy in a few weeks!
