Family Photographer Maryland

Memories filled with light, love and genuine moments.

I believe family portrait sessions should be enjoyable. I can never get enough of those real smiles + candid moments. When working with children, I always let them be little.

What you can expect from your family photography session:

• A pre-session consultation to help me learn your preferences for how your family is portrayed, and your goals for our time together. 

• Guidance on a wardrobe that is flattering + photographs beautifully, complete with a curated style guide, so you're never left wondering what to wear.
Beautiful locations, and a relaxed presence at your session, with posing and prompts that will generate natural portraits full of love and emotion.

• Timely delivery of your viewing gallery, with careful hand retouching on each of the very best images. 

• A streamlined design appointment where you can select from a collection of industry leading professional heirloom products and custom framing.

She was absolutely wonderful. The pictures turned out amazing, and she is the sweetest person to work with and wonderful with newborns. I can’t say enough good things about her.

"Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!" 

Beyond amazing. Jess has taken pictures of our family twice now and somehow manages to capture the best pictures of us all! Even with an ornery toddler and unpredictable newborn, Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!"

“She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.”

One thing we NEVER stressed about was our photographer. Besides taking phenomenal pictures she was so easy going, friendly and thoughtful. Often times checking in with me just to see how we were doing and how things were coming along. She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.

If it looks like rain or other inclement weather will happen on the day of our scheduled session, we will be in touch via email. Often, the forecast changes day to day, so whenever possible we wait to make any final calls for rescheduling until the day of the session. This gives us the most up to date idea of weather patterns!

The sooner the better! Our scheduling fills up quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so reaching out at least 6-8 weeks in advance of your desired date is recommended.

To reserve your date, you'll review our studio menu of offerings, then complete a contract as well as the session fee invoice. Then you're officially official!

Not to worry! I'm always here to assist with outfit coordination. From  inspiration resources you can look through for ideas, to custom mood boards that fit your desired color palette and style. You will never be left wondering how to dress your family for portraits!

It is 100% normal to feel a little awkward in front of the camera. I will guide you through natural posing and actions, and before you know it, you'll be a pro!

I'll also let you in on a little secret: kids don't ever sit still. Seriously! And I actually rarely want them to during photos. My tried and true approach is to chat with them, have them playing and enjoying the session - that's when the magic happens!

Within 1 week of your session, you'll receive an email inviting you to schedule your gallery reveal appointment via zoom.

During this appointment you will view a slideshow of your images, followed by a selection process where we will custom design the products that best fit your family. Choose from statement wall art, an heirloom album, fine art prints and more! 

Pre-­session consultation, wardrobe styling/planning for your family, session in Client’s home or outdoor location and design/ordering appointment.

**Digital files, prints, and products are purchased separately, with our most popular a la carte offerings ranging from $699-$1495**
