We were soooooo pleased when Sydney+Sam asked us to create both a little social media film and photo session to share their pregnancy announcement with family+friends! This was a new one for us...Brynn+I usually collaborate on First48+Welcome Home Baby sessions. We wondered how we were going to pull off something so different nearly simultaneously. We scoped out a couple of locations. Made a plan, then another and just did it. No, it didn't go quite as we had in our heads. Th
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
A last-minute babymoon excursion married to a last-minute maternity session during one of the busiest weekends in Annapolis! Not only did we all make it happen, but because of our earlier chat and correspondence, it felt like meeting up with friends! And it continued from the get go. We learned about Nate's A-MAZING proposal to Vania. He carried around the ring in his pocket as they walked Camino del Santiago in Spain, waiting for just the right moment to ask Vania to be
I have a new lens that I've wanted to use, but always put it back in my bag. I also have an aversion to holding sessions in places teeming with people. Niki's also a photographer, so she understands my foibles. She gets it when I cry out "I can't see you! The sun has burned my retinas!" and the waits +/or attempted work arounds when you're trying to make a place look empty of people (and benches, and bins and port-o-potties). Approaching Niki+Andrew was an easy ask. I suspect
OMGosh these two lovely, lovely people! Sweet, fun, engaging...like hanging out with old friends! I LOVE the way Clayton looked at Sarah, the way he touched her...oh! <3 . I cannot wait for baby girl to meet her wonderful parents! .

I love it when I get to tag along with another photographer. True, my primary role is PA, but when I'm not carrying bags, checking out the terrain to make sure it's safe (I'm expendable, a momma and poppa are not), using my entire body weight to hold back a ginormous branch, or doing a little stand-up comedy, I get to click a little! Thank you, Tirro Photography and Vishruit+Parthiv for letting me join in on your session! Looking forward to meeting baby boy next month! . .
We absolutely cherish the relationships we have with our clients! This past Sunday, we had the privilege of reconnecting with Kristen+Scott, whose wedding we filmed in October 2016. When we learned they'd be back in Maryland for their baby shower, we made a plan (through lots of texting and FB messaging) to steal them away for a few hours to create a maternity/gender reveal video AND photographs. But the incessant rain put a kibosh on our original idea, so we, unfortun
Last year, Jessi+Tyler celebrated their rainy day wedding at Historic London Town and Gardens (HLT+G). I knew EXACTLY who they were from Tara + Renata's blog of their wedding...Jessi wore one of my all-time-favorite gowns! Yesterday they returned to a sunny HLT+G to celebrate the impending arrival of "Lil Lamb," who is expected in just a few short weeks! . . . #thuisstudios #hellobaby #maternity #lillamb #historiclondontownandgardens #londontown #maryland #annapolis #edgewat
If mom-to-be looks a little familiar, it's because her sister, Kasey, was the first new mom in our Hello Baby! series of photography, as well as cinematography (First48). So now we sit on pins and needles waiting the arrival of baby boy. He has a beautiful midnight blue room with aviation accents and, of course, a sweet bunny waiting for him. His dad is a Redskins fan AND a new firefighter, so it goes without saying some of these images reflect what is sure to become a fami
The new house isn't ready, but the baby almost is! We took Britney+Kyle's Lifestyle Maternity session to the street, checking out the adorableness at the Lil Lamb Boutique and stopping for a cuppa at The Red Bean in Annapolis. . . . #thuisstudios #hellobaby #maternity #lifestyle #annapolis #maryland #lillambboutique #babyboutique #shoppingforbaby #theredbean #coffeeshop #maternityphotographer #marylandphotographer #marylandmaternityphotographer #annapolisphotographer #anna
Kasey+Jeff were at the inception of Thuis Studios. They were the twinkle behind our wedding cinematography. Now, with their own little twinkle on the way, it was natural for us to ask them if they'd be our models for our Hello Baby! trilogy: Maternity, First48, and Welcome Home Baby. THANK YOU, Kasey+Jeff. We're so excited to meet the little miss later in the year! <3 . . . #thuisstudios #hellobaby #maternity #lifestyle #lifestylematernityphotographer #maternityphotogr
We went to O'ahu to meet our 3-month old granddaughter, and had the chance to get up before sunrise to celebrate Brandi+Alex's pregnancy second shooting with Tirro photography. It was a super experience watching the sunrise over this lovely couple and their soon-to-arrive little one, Nicholas Kai (whose middle name in Hawaiian means "the sea"). . . . #thuisstudios #hellobaby #maternity #oahu #hawaii #sunrise #goldenhour #beach #pacific #ocean #cliffs #waves #momtobe #dadtobe
