A Princess Lifestyle Session :: Real Life Photos

Alex2014-10-blog

This one is full of personality and energy.

She likes to tease and make you laugh.

She’s giggles and mischief.

She has a love for all things Disney and a kick-ass collection of princess dress-up gowns.

I’ve been photographing her every year for the past few years, and she’s a pal of my two little ones.  When her mother suggested a dress-up lifestyle shoot this year, I was excited (and so was my little girl who adores said dress-up collection)!

As always, there were giggles and silliness.

There was a fashion show and a dance party as well as lots of music and singing.

Just a regular ole Saturday morning with a couple of little sweethearts :-)

Documenting a Christmas Tradition :: Real Life Family Photo Session with Grandparents

Berman-88-LoRes

For more than 15 years, my parents have made gingerbread houses for their grandchildren at Christmas time.  As soon as I had children and they were old enough to participate, I was ecstatic!  It’s become one of our favorite Christmas traditions, and one of my favorite holiday activities to document.  I can only imagine the special memories my little ones are storing away of magical times like these, spent with their grandparents.

Late last year, I was contacted by this family to help document their annual Christmas get-together with their extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  They also have a yearly tradition of decorating gingerbread houses with their grandparents!  This will always be a cherished memory for these kiddos and this family, and I was super excited to help them freeze these special moments in time!

Documenting a Saturday morning at home :: Real Life Family Photo Session

Introducing a new type of photo session offered by yours truly.

The Real Life Family Session.

Picture this: You’re at home with your loved ones on a lazy Saturday morning, with nothing else to do but do what you love to do.

With the ones you love most in this world.

and I’m there to document all of the seemingly ordinariness of it all.

Pajamas.  Pancakes.  Story time.  Game playing.  Snuggles.  Pigtails.  Giggles.

Fall Family Portraits in Ellicott City, Maryland

2014-11-10_0001

Early in our first conversation, she said her 4-year-old son can be very shy around strangers and he often avoids having his picture taken.  I told her not to worry because we’ll make the session too fun for him not to smile.  Fortunately I was correct, and I was blessed with that sweet smile throughout our session.

Here are just a handful of the many sweet images we captured during their fun family session:
