Classic studio portraits never go out of style!  Black and white portraits especially remain a timeless art piece for your family’s home for generations to come, regardless of your changing decor. Black and white images can be mixed into a wall display along side colored images (there are no interior decor “rules” that discourage this!) or you can seamlessly add more black and white images to your family portrait wall as your family grows.

For this session we selected our sets and backgrounds based on the family’s fantastic wardrobe styling.  Their wardrobe selections coordinate well with their home’s interior decor and their little one’s interests.  (Doesn’t everyone adore dressing in a beautiful outfit? Check out this custom made twirly princess dress!)

We particularly love the flexibility we have in the studio – the ability to create more formal, posed family portraits and more casual, lifestyle type portraits provides families with variety and options when selecting their favorites!

Organic, neutral colors for girls and boys are making a strong come back this year, if the styling requests we’re seeing from parents are any indication!  We love this soft, organic color palette for any baby because of the classic, timeless feel these softer colors provide.  Using a group of neutral colors ensures your images will look fantastic in any room of the house and will coordinate with your decor choices for years to come.

We’re looking forward to following this little sweetheart as she grows over the next year!

What happens when every Christmas tree farm is booked over the winter holidays?  We make our own Tree Farm set at the studio!  The holiday season is a difficult time for outdoor portraits – the changing weather extremes and the unpredictable schedules can present several challenges for photographers and families alike.  This year we had the added complications of being unable to find tree farms in the local area who were able to rent us some space to use for photographing some families!  Unfortunately amateur photographers who have abused such privileges in the past have made it really tough for professionals to be able to build these kinds of relationships with local businesses… the result is that our clients have less access to fantastic experiences with their family!

Photographers are quite accustomed to problem solving however, so it wasn’t tough to find another solution!  We built a Christmas tree set right at our studio and provided a safe, warm space for little ones to retreat to in the studio AND a fun outdoor set for families of all sizes. The results were fantastic for our clients who needed a quick winter holiday card update, and provided some amazing variety to choose from!

We love our Limited Edition Themes, like this one, because more clients have access to the set design and styling options we provide, AND this makes for a stress-free experience for our clients.

Family Christmas Cards are a tradition for many of our Maryland clients! When we couldn’t rent some time at one of our favorite Christmas Tree Farms this year, we jumped into problem solving mode! Photographers are quite accustomed to problem solving, so it wasn’t tough to find another solution!  We built a Christmas tree set right at our studio and provided a safe, warm space for little ones to retreat to in the studio AND a fun outdoor set for families of all sizes.

We love our Limited Edition Themes, like this one, because more clients have access to the set design and styling options we provide, AND this makes for a stress-free experience for our clients. There is literally nothing clients need to do to prepare, as we have wardrobe options for little ones in the studio (or you can bring your own and mix and match!)

Our next Limited Edition Theme will be this spring, especially for Mamas!

Baby’s first Santa visit should be a fun memory for everyone! Each year we invite our favorite Santa to the studio for family portraits that are relaxed and fun for little ones. Santa reads stories, and tells everyone all about his Magic Keys and little ones have all the time they need to warm up to Santa, enjoy their time and talk about the important things.

We find that these themed portrait sessions allow little ones a positive, relaxed and stress-free Santa experience.  Their visit with Santa is as involved as they prefer, and our full length appointment times allow everyone a chance to visit without being rushed. Santa has even been known to lay down on the floor and play trucks and color with little ones who find interacting with strangers a challenge.

Here’s to stress-free portraits of all your most important milestones!
