Trying to put into words how we feel about being part of so many of Niki+Andrew's most precious life moments...it's just not possible. Trying to tell you how we show up to work while simultaneously "hang out" with them is only do-able if you get who we are and how we want people to feel. (We became friends with Niki+Andrew pretty much by the time we were done working their wedding film. The relationship.just.clicked.) Trying to explain how this time as a new little family is
Vivienne, she's one determined lady. When I was crying "storms!!," she said let's wait it out. After an incredible downpour we.caught.a.break. A small, incredibly humid, and beautiful light break for their little maternity session. Vivienne (and her dress)....dreamy! Iota, their much adored boy, did so well (so grateful to Bill for keeping both Iota+Kevin company as we went along!). Kevin was so kind, charming, and obviously loving this woman and their precious baby! All thr
Where to begin with this Mommy+Me?! An ADORABLE almost-2-yr old who immediately picked up dusty gravel and wiped her cheeks with it (wet wipes, check!). Interested in pine cones and all manner of exploration (lifestyle, happy HAPPY check!)! Loved wearing the big, adult-size floppy hat (way to go, my girl!! check-a roonie!) A beautiful, laid-back momma who enjoyed the play, the cuddles and let her little girl be who she is! . . . #thuisstudios #familyphotographer #annapolisf
Kim was home for the holidays, which meant the entire family was present for a brief time. The two little peanuts just celebrated their second birthdays. It was one of the few sunny (altho slightly chilly) times we'd seen in what felt like yonks! Sooo happy Kasey arranged this get together and asked us along to share in the cuddles and laughs (and occasional nose picking!). .

Their family has become our family! One wedding, two baby journeys, three sisters with their kiddos+hubbies, and this year adding mom+dad! We aimed for the must haves and fit in as much as we could while keeping an eye on each other so no one feel into the large critter burrows in the field! (We're talking busy critters who made holes that would be up to the little ones' middles!) Most of all, we embraced the moments, let it roll (bc everyone wants to have fun) and kept it
Last weekend we were invited into Ashley+Ryan's home. We haven't seen them since we filmed their wedding more than 3 years ago...and it felt like it was just yesterday! It was great to catch up with them and their three little girls as we all celebrated welcoming home baby Freya! . . . #thuisstudios #welcomehomebaby #newbornphotographer #annapolisnewbornphotographer #marylandnewbornphotographer #lifestylephotographer #annapolisnewbornvideographer #marylandnewbornvideograph
So, there's always a really great chance Bill will come with me during sessions. I love it when he does bc we can take a different approach, using different lenses, at the same time. It's also super to have another set of eyes, help carrying stuff, and a Sherlock approach to find the hot pink sippy cup left behind in the grass! (I know, how could none of us, except for Bill, see it?!) .

I'm so glad to be photographing families. I don't expect Pinterest perfection. I expect kids to be kids (and parents to roll). Awesome if the kiddo is in the shot; awesome if not. She may play, she may fuss, she may run into mom+dad's shot with a finger up her nose (please, please, please let's remember to have tissues on hand. Just in case...because it's cute until there is something hanging on the end of a finger. 😮 ). It's all good. It's your life and we're living it toge
Dad is a U.S. Naval Academy grad stationed at the Academy so naturally this was the perfect place for their family photographs. After days upon days of rain in Annapolis, the family had lovely skies but had to brave humidity and mosquitoes (who for some reason outnumber the midshipmen population) for what turned out to be a really sweet session! Tagging along with Tirro Photography as bag carrier, chatterbox (not that Caitlin needs help with that) and supplier of anti-mosquit
OMGosh! Hadn't seen Brandy in almost 3 years when we were on O'ahu and got up at o'dark-thirty for a Maternity session with Tirro Photography. (BTW, sunrise sessions in Hawai'i are perfection!) Now that Brandy is living temporarily "just down the road," Cait asked her friend to do a Mommy+Me session. We had such a great time and little Brooke was a super star! Looking forward to seeing Brandy and Brooke again tomorrow and meeting the baby that was in her belly 3 years
