Anual Family Holiday Session * Frederick MD Family Photographer

I have been working with this family since big brother was a newborn.  I get such a kick out of seeing them every year and watching them grow up.  The brothers are all boy and baby sister can totally hold her own with them…and me!  She was a riot.  I hardly recognized her, her hair was so much darker at her last session.  I was actually caught off guard when mom took her hat off. Luckily we nailed a nice family shot with in the first few minutes of shooting.  The rest of the time was spent thinking of creative ways to get baby sister close enough to her brothers for a few shots of just the kids.  Easier said than done.  Mom and dad are pretty easy going, we didn’t over do it with the coaxing and eventually she wanted to join in the fun.  The boys were Rockstars this year! Lots of cooperation and very handsome smiles! It was great to see everyone.

This is not how I envisioned the photo when I made these props…I almost like it better.  They are a little less than JOYful, but for some reason it made me laugh so I shot it!

I love working with cousins!  These guys were so much fun!! Both sets of kiddos are the same age.  Can you tell who the siblings are?  Fortunately for me there is another cousin on the way.  Their Auntie came to help wrangle the kids and make them smile, and we got a shot of all four of their little hands on her belly ♥.  It’s going to be a fun Christmas at their house this year.

One year Photo Session * Frederick MD Baby Photographer

This little one was not feeling up to pictures when she was here. Fortunately she is a beautiful baby and we were able to get a few shots in before she just couldn’t do it anymore.  Mom stuck her first birthday cake in the freezer to bring back when she is feeling a little better.  Sometimes that happens when you work with babies.

Naughty List?  What Naughty List?

As a Children’s photographer. I always send out a card with a great photo of the kid’s on it.  A few years ago ( I think it was in an attempt to get out of the project) my son said he wouldn’t do it unless I was in it too.  Much to his dismay I have a remote for my camera (as seen in my left hand). The problem I face every year is my kids are not little and cute anymore.  It dawned on me that after 16 years of being in business, many of my long time customers may be facing the same dilemma.  Don’t worry you don’t have to age out of your Christmas Photo tradition. We just need to get a little more creative. There is an up side to older children who actually take direction.  You can get them to do just about anything, and they do it quickly. Got an idea for a fun Christmas card?  Lets brainstorm! Want to do this pose? Just let me know the first few names to put on the naughty list.

Family Photo Session * Frederick MD Family Photographer

I really love this time of year.  I get to see all of the families I have been working with for years.  I have been photographing these two since they were little babies.  These boys are two of the sweetest you will meet.  I have a feeling it has a lot to do with mom and dad.  This family is so loving and supportive of one another, it does your heart good just to hang out with them. Our time together is always so much fun.  The boys are always allowed some time to express themselves however they like for a few photos.  I love this idea.  I think these will be the ones that end up being most cherished in years to come.
