“Welcome home daddy” and “Happy birthday, baby!” {Ellicott City Photographer}

27 03 2011

So…..I met Shawn last year.  She had called my studio asking if I did “cake smash” photos for babies birthday pictures.  After chatting and answering some questions, I invited her into the Studio to discuss further what she wanted and what I could offer.  I loved our visit, we hit it off right away.

Through our conversation that day at the Studio, I learned that her husband was in the Middle East serving our country.  He would be home in several months when their baby turns one!  AWESOME!!  How great that we could create a family portrait at the same time of Cheyenne’s one year portraits and cake smash photos!

Even though it was several months until daddy would be home, I was able to see Cheyenne and her mommy a few times.  I invited her to help me showcase some of my new tutu sets, Cheyenne was a great little model.

Hi daddy!!  Hurry home!

Fast forward now,  to last month when the long awaited trip from husband and daddy was finally realized.  Brian was now on U.S soil and with his family!!! 😀 He, his beautiful wife and baby and his parents all came to my studio for a great afternoon.  It was a true honor and joy to have all of them here.

Here are some of the portraits that we created that fun February day.

First of all, THANK YOU, BRIAN, for serving our country.  I’m so thankful for you and all of our servicemen and women.

for another beautiful family.

I had the extreme honor of photographing another sweet newborn, Carter,  into the Woodard family.  I was able to get to know this awesome family when I photographed his older brother when he was a part of my Baby’s First Year Plan.  I love this family and always have a great time with them.

A sweet moment with the family…

Newborn portraits

melt my heart!

I was thrilled to meet baby Ella.  I met her mom last year when she came to my studio for corporate head shots.  Months later, she contacted me to photograph her maternity session with Julia, the soon-to-be big sister! I had a great time with them. 🙂 I could tell that Julia was going to be an awesome big sis!  Click here to see a few images from her maternity session.

Jennifer is a beautiful, smart woman and her daughters are absolutely precious. I’m looking forward to taking their family portraits very soon!

Here’s sweet, 6 week old Ella…

Jennifer, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you a little better each time you’ve been to the studio. I appreciate the trust you’ve placed in me to document this incredible time in your lives. Your family is gorgeous. I’m thrilled that everyone is healthy and doing well.
