What makes our studio unique?
Our dedicated professional studio location is conveniently located right off the I95 and Route 1, the main corridors between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. We have convenient access to both indoor and outdoor locations all within a short distance from both major cities.
Comfort for the whole family:
The day of your session is all about you and your family. We take as much time as you and your little one needs during your session.
Sometimes new parents enjoy a little more pampering during this busy time. We’re happy to provide professional hair and makeup at special studio rates for grown ups, if you choose as well as hair and wardrobe styling for siblings. (Ask us for more details!)
At the studio, we have gourmet coffee and tea for the grown ups, and all the amenities you could need for your little one, including a well stocked changing table and toys for older siblings. Our goal is to make your little one’s portraits a calm, relaxing family activity where you can focus on spending time together (or grab a nap while we work!) You can tour the Studio here.
Worry Free Sessions:
Large families, families of multiples, and special sessions are all reasons why we might call upon a second (or third!) set of hands to help keep everyone safe (and content!) We have two expert posing assistants, and assistants who can help us entertain older siblings, soothe newborns and ensure safety on-location or in-studio.
We also stock an extensive studio wardrobe, in case of spills or messes there will always be back-up wardrobe options on hand.
Experience and Safety:
We are a team of experts who have more than ten years in the business. All our staff receive professional development each year to stay current in the latest equipment and safety in the studio. Our studio is also equipped with children in mind; everything from spill proof furniture, to covered electrical outlets and the latest in studio safety equipment for newborns and children.
Growing with your Family:
We understand how important it is to have portraits at different stages of childhood. (Read here to learn more about portraits at different stages). We have a small team available to grow with your family at every stage of childhood, including on-location photographers who will create beautiful Lifestyle Portraits in your home or on-location, a professional posing assistant to help us with families of multiples, and studio photographers for classic studio images.
By working as a team, you can enjoy the simplicity of accessing different experts all in one place. You can also take advantage of different portrait styles as your family grows and your needs change with each stage. You can read more about our small and mighty team here.
How many of your electronic devices can still read CDs? How about floppy disks?
Technology is changing quickly, and many of the images made during the floppy disk era no longer exist. Our job is to help you find tangible keepsakes that stand the test of time, so you can enjoy your images today AND when your grandchildren are born.
We have sought out the top craftsman, artisans and suppliers from around the country to provide you with lasting heirloom quality keepsakes that you will be proud to pass on to future generations. We also take the difficulty and guess work out of choosing your products by providing you access to our specialized interior design training, state of the art software and our years of experience every step of the way. There’s no need to guess what you might want on your walls, or in your albums, we’ll show you the possibilities before you purchase!
Your portrait session experience includes a Planning Consultation with your photographer by phone, email or video, prior to your session, to plan your session and answer any questions you may have. We’re happy to help with wardrobe selection and tips for preparing your children.
Your session also includes a customized Art Consultation in-person, scheduled at your convenience after your portrait session. You’ll be invited back to the studio to preview your portraits and purchase the images you would like to keep, preserving your new art for future generations.
