"Dress warmly!, Ryan says 'it's SNOWING!'" That's Brynn making sure we didn't freeze during our session in Manchester. It was about 50*F here in Annapolis, but sure enough, cold enough to be "slushing" up north. Lucky for us, Ryan+Em's house has heat! ;) (And yes, I still dressed in layers, because you never know!) All toasty, we rolled into lighthearted, silly banter...tag teaming our video+photo shots while Ryan, Em+Char got all cuddly. Grayson came and went and came a
There were such.big.leaves on the ground! And the big leaves made up for, a little, the sun hiding behind the clouds. Not that the boys cared about the setting sun! Six-year old Nolan was about cheesing and 2-year old Auggie was giving that look (scroll through, you'll see his perfected eye roll!). Clouds, cheesing, eye rolls, tickles, play and a lolly...it all made this visit a sweet one! . . . #thuisstudios #annapolisfamilyphotographer #marylandfamilyphotographer #family
As we roll into winter the colors of summer and fall fade away, but my sweet friend and her family brought them back during this session on their incredible property (and their cow children even stopped by to check us out!). <3 you guys! . . . #thuisstudios #annapolisfamilyphotographer #marylandfamilyphotographer #fortmeadewives #bowiemd #annapolis #maryland #cowsarefriendsnotfood
Not going to lie, photographing a photographer I soooo admire and have been following on instagram was a little eeee. Eeee because April is a phenomenal photographer and eeee because she actually said "yes". The session was wonderful! April and her family are so sweet, easy going and fun! The desert location with the sun setting in just the perfect place...I couldn't have asked for more! So happy to meet April and her family in person. So grateful for experience to phot
The southwest is GORGEOUS! Its wide open spaces and beautiful horizons are amazing. Bring in a stunning momma and her little girl...just ahhhh! . . . #thuisstudios #familyphotographer #mommyandme #annapolisfamilyphotographer #marylandfamilyphotographer #whitesandsnationalmonument
So you're 1-yr old and you got better things to do than to hang with the fam for some photos or even eat cake. There are lovely shiny things catching your big brown eyes that not even sugary ducks or colorful wild animals can tempt you away. But wait, what's that? A flame?! Now we're talking! (No babies were harmed in the making of these photographs!). Happy birthday, sweet boy! I loved seeing how big you've gotten from just a year ago! You looked so handsome in your s
We think it's time to "pay it forward," don't you? We love The Icarus Foundation's Chesapeake Parrot Sanctuary and so appreciate the love and dedication Christi and her volunteers give to the rescued birds and the education they provide to the public. Thuis Studios is offering mini sessions on 29 June (rain date 30 June) in Harwood, Maryland. $150 for a 20-minute session and 5 retouched images. Every penny goes directly to The Icarus Foundation!

+Boogers. I can say that because I'm childish and.I.can. It was sooo good to see Chelsey, Mike and the kiddos after almost a year! There were guessing games and stick clean ups, not to mention lots of pine cones to collect. And when the kiddos weren't guessing what animals were being described, the topic went to boogers. Kind of apropos since that dastardly pollen was giving the littles the sniffles! . . . #thuisstudios #family #annapolisfamilyphotographer #marylandfamily
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
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
We filmed and photographed Megan+Nik's wedding in 2016, and we've been in touch, off and on, ever since. Misha arrived at the beginning of July...and Megan+Nik were game to delay what would normally be a "Welcome Home Baby" into a "Baby's First Outing" of sorts. At 3 months old, this was Misha's introduction to sand between his toes and a stroll in the woods, along with the normal tons of cuddles from mom+dad! Oh, and Misha sported snappy suspenders and an adorable bow tie
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
Aiming for golden hour during the summer season can be tough on littles who usually go to bed before the sun does. Sydni+Kyle were ready to keep Cody+Georgie engaged with loads of silliness and endless sweet cuddles (plus occasional snackeroonies). With limited guidance, they played before the camera...being exactly who they are. And.it.was.magical. At one point my back was turned, and I heard the sweetest sound...Kyle crooning to his baby girl "I can show you the world.
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
Tagged along with Cait from Tirro Photography to see the new little someone in Parthiv+Vishruti's (and grandma's) life. Less than 2 weeks old, he's just a tiny wee thing, and during our visit, so content to look around or after a "top off" sleep, sleep, sleep.
It was so comfortable to be in their company. I love the cuddles and the connections. I have to admit, I really adore just-doing-life images. They are my favorite to photograph...the authenticity is just sooooo! .
