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
It's been a busy summer with the house demo, running to Chicago for some @BZCinema work and really just regular life. Finally got a chance to hit Baltimore (at a time when the skies matched the day back in June) to get some B-roll for the in-law's wedding film. That would be the wedding Brynn+Jason were IN the wedding party and filming here and there (can you imagine?!). #thuisstudios #intimateweddingvideographer #elopementvideographer #intimateweddingphotographer #elopemen
and back at the time when we were cutting our photography teeth. Lauren+Chip, who hadn't taken photographs since their wedding, were agreeable subjects and wanted shared with us one of their favorite places, The French Twist. From that day to this, lifestyle is still my favorite way to photograph. #thuisstudios #lifestylephotography #marylandphotographer #annapolisphotographer #thefrenchtwist #coffeehouse #sykesville
Brynn needed a couple of new head shots for her BZCinema adventure. We ended up at the US Naval Academy, catching the last minutes of light after being thwarted by a traffic accident and blocked entry at our originally desired location. I think we pulled off a handful of beautiful images. Here are the two she selected: . . . #thuisstudios #marylandphotographer #annapolisphotographer #headshots #bzcinema #marylandvideographer #annapolisvideographer #usna #usnavalacademy #sn
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
Look what we get to do! Fly on a banana boat and an inflatable raft, scale a rock wall, climb a 40'-foot pole to take a Leap of Faith, flip into a pool...all for point-of-view footage! . . . #thuisstudios #promofilms #promovideo #marketingvideos #campwabanna #marylandmarketingvideographer #annapolismarketingvideographer #baltimoremarketingvideographer #vamarketingvideographer #dcmarketingvideographer #dmvmarketingvideographer
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! .
We had such a wonderful time working with Beth (Retreat Center Director) to create Wabanna Camp and Conference Center's new promotional film. The grounds are breathtaking, the team is outstanding, and the adventure opportunities are fabulous at this incredible piece of paradise located in Edgewater, MD! "Camp Wabanna's Retreat Center goal is to provide a beautiful, comfortable, and convenient environment for your church, school or organization to accomplish whatever th
This Father's Day had me thinking...one doesn't really see "Daddy+Me" sessions. If you're a dad and you have a little one (toddler through age 5), shoot me an email (email@example.com) with your name, telephone number, the age of your child and let's see if we're right for one another! You'll get to hang out with your kiddo and receive 10 retouched images of you and your little, and I'll get to add to our Just Because portfolio! (Session will be held appx 1-2 hours p
Oh my gosh, such a great time, so beautifully genuine, and extra special because we worked on their incredible farm. . . .

Yes, yes she is the Thuis Studios cinematographer extraordinaire, but do you know Brynn also works in the veterinary field? She's responsible for Media Marketing+Client Communications at Annapolis Cat Hospital + Bay Ridge Animal Hospital. In addition to her long list of duties, she also creates educational videos which include her Growing Old with You series, and hands down her favorite music parody to date, Can't Stop the Feeling! about heartworm prevention. Brynn has rece
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! . .
Yes, there was once an official team of four. But after a while the guys decided they really only needed to be on call. So lucky us, we're able to coordinate with them for the big things (operating the UAV), the frustrating things (why oh why does my computer hate me?!), and small things (can you hold that for me, please?) . . . #thuisstudios #marylandphotographer #marylandvideographer #annapolisphotographer #annapolisvideographyr #sayido #elope #elopement #intimatewedding
Since deciding to take a road less traveled with our wedding services and expanding some of our cinematography offerings, our previous site no longer reflected our direction. We hope you like both our new look and our new ideas! Please visit soon as we continue repopulate our Blog with some of our old favorites, along with new sessions and projects! And don't keep us in your pocket. Share us with family, friends, colleagues and strangers! . . . #thuisstudios #annapolisphoto
Thuis. "Thew-is" is the most common pronunciation we hear. Silly us, we were so wrapped up in the meaning and experience of the word, the pronunciation never occurred to us! (Pronounced "tah-ouse"...click to listen to the pronunciation). A wonderful lifetime ago, we lived in The Netherlands. Our Dutch friends embraced us and with them we always felt completely at home or "zich thuis voelen." It's our sincerest wish for you to always feel at home with us as we work with yo
You have just enough in you for a quick wash off of the frosting, a wardrobe change and a few snaps with mom, dad, and the pup! . . . #thuisstudios #family #familyphotography #marylandfamilyphotographer #annapolisfamilyphotographer #mom #dad #oneyearold #toddler #dog #woods #forest
This kid. This kid. The sweetest wee guy around. A thoughtful cake smasher...more about taking a tiny fist full rather than indulge in a full-blown cake riot. He was so tickled with himself!
