A baby girl, her pup & her parents |Maryland Newborn Photographer

This newborn shoot wasn’t a typical “newborn” – she was 6 weeks old! Newborns are usually photographed less then 2 weeks of age, this is because shortly around that point babies begin to be more aware (and less willing to let you swaddle them, dress and undress, etc.), develop skin issues and sometimes become colicky.

With that said, I still love an older newborn. With age and this newfound curiosity we often get lots of images with babies eyes wide open! I think its best to let newborns “lead” their photoshoots. Sometimes they want to be wrapped up snug as bug, sometimes they want to be free, sometimes they want to sleep the whole time and then others they want to be wide awake. I like to let baby decide!

I am a Frederick, Maryland photographer who creates timeless and artistic images- specializing in all types of family portraiture and also creating imgery for small business. You may also catch me shooting a wedding or event! I have over 10 years of experience photographing professionally and it is my passion to photograph people and document lives.
Although I work in all of the DC, Maryland & Virgina area, the SLP sudio has been located in downtown Frederick since 2015. As a family we love living, working and playing in our town.
Aside from photography, I enjoy food (eating, not cooking), DIY projects and lazy days with my family. The way to my heart is through my stomach especially if its coffee and/or chocolate. I have three daughters who also inherited my sweet tooth!
I frequent the entire East Coast am available to travel worldwide.
