I love featuring “my neighbors” here in downtown Annapolis on the blog, and it’s especially true when they relate to children.  Beginning in February, Historic Annapolis Foundation is starting a fun and educational new series – Mr. Paca’s Backyard – to give kiddos a chance to explore the 18th century garden through famous children’s stories!  Details can be found at Annapolis.org/events – I look forward to joining them in the garden!

It may be a little chilly outside, but we are busy in the studio capturing little ones like this sweet baby girl!  We clicked the thermostat up a couple of extra notches to capture her in her birthday suit.  Is your baby not quite sitting?  Contact us now and we’ll have you on the calendar when he/she is sitting unassisted.  Photographing babies of this age is always a favorite, and it’s amazing how much variety we can capture in a 30 minute ‘just because’ session.

These little ones are kicking off 2015 with a dance party – not unlike how my girls and I start most of our days on the way to school.  Nothing like the 80′s on satellite radio to get the day going; give us a little Go-Go’s or Journey and we are ready to attack the day.

The pace here in the studio has been pretty crazy for the past few weeks – so much for quiet down-time in January!  I’m excited to share some of what I’ve been working on, but in the meantime, I’m at my desk wrapping up a recent newborn and family session and simply had to post this image.  I can close my eyes and remember these days myself – the early days after Ellie was born and I never wanted to put her down.  I know that this big sis is helping to take excellent care of their new family member, but won’t ever stop being her her Mommy’s first baby.  Happy New Year everyone – 2015 has lots in store for all of us!
