This little girl turned one recently.  Can you believe a year has gone by since her newborn photo session?  It’s a joy to watch my clients grow:-) Please enjoy a few of my favorites from our recent shoot together…

The rocking chair you see in some of these images is in fact a very special family heirloom.  This little lady’s great-great-grandfather made it for her great-grandfather’s first Christmas.  How amazing is that?  I love using my clients’ special possessions in our shoots!

I love helping my clients enjoy their family photos – in heirloom albums to pass down to the next generation and on their walls to be seen and smiled at each and everyday!  During our next viewing and ordering session, ask me to help you envision your photos on your walls, like below!

Our Beloved Trail // Rock Hall’s Lifestyle Child Photographer // Jennifer K Photography

When I feel the most out of sorts, I long to spend a morning on my family’s favorite trail.  It’s located on the flat lands of Maryland’s Eastern Shore.  It’s called the Duck Inn Trail, but I don’t recall ever seeing a duck on any of our hikes.  But, in the spring, we see plenty of sweet-smelling, lavender-hued lilacs – enough to bring home several large handpicked bouquets.  In the summer, cattails line each side of our path and bald eagles soar overhead in the bright blue sky.  We have seen so many bald eagles that my 3-year daughter just doesn’t understand what we mean when we tell her how lucky we are to see so many rare birds.  In the fall, we walk on the fallen pine needles from the large Loblollies towering overhead, enjoying the scent with every step.

At the halfway point of each hike is the small, oyster shell beach that meets up with the Chester River.  My husband takes the opportunity to add to our sea glass collection.  He brings along a bag specifically for this purpose.  My daughter works on her throw, utilizing the beach’s endless supply of smooth, oval rocks.  My son, the toddling member of our family, has already found an appreciation for our family’s beloved beach and trail.  As soon as we set foot on the beach, he begins his favorite activity of throwing messy handfuls of wet sand and tiny pebbles into the water.  Bailey Boy, our sweet golden retriever who ironically panics when near water, finds the furthest point from the water’s edge within view of us to lie down, rest and observe us.

This is when I get out the camera that’s been stored in my backpack and observe my family the best way I know how.  This is when I slow down, put the camera up to my eye, take a deep breath, and take in the beauty that is my family.  This is my best attempt of living in the moment, taking it all in, and thanking God for the many blessings that lay before me.

I no longer feel out of sorts and, even if it’s only for a brief moment, everything appears crystal clear and as it should.  How can I ask for anything more?

Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions at Kupcakes & Co. // Jennifer K Photography // Howard County’s Custom Child Photographer

I hope you had a very Happy Valentine’s Day this past Friday.  A day filled with love and spent with those you hold dear.

I’m pleased to say my Valentine mini sessions at Kupcakes & Co. were a resounding success!  Kupcakes & Co. provided the absolute best location and yummiest Valentine goodies for our sessions.  I met so many wonderful families and together we created the most adorable photographs of their sweetie pies.  I know their loved ones were thrilled when they received their special valentines and gift prints in the mail last week!

Below are just a small sampling of my favorite shots from that day.  Please enjoy!
