Gus came to get his birthday pictures done, and I was excited to see what he would choose to wear. For a time, Gus only wore ties to school, because he said when he looked handsome, he acted like a gentleman. Well, this gentleman is certainly growing up fast.
Gus is celebrating being 10 years old this month, and decided to go with the cool kid, pre-teen casual look. It suits him well, since he’s a pretty cool kid! As part of the process for birthday sessions, I encourage parents to let their kids choose what they will wear for the session so we can remember what their true current personality was when we look back over the years.
Gus was so easy to photograph. He did exactly what I requested of him, and even had a few ideas himself!
What a joy to have this boy in front of my camera! His smile was contagious and bright. I can’t wait to photograph him again!

Tiny came to my home studio in Gaithersburg all ready to take pictures to celebrate her recent birthday. She’s five already!
Moments before heading out the door while mom was getting ready to leave, this sweet girl took it upon herself to do her own makeup - she was just so excited to be coming to the shoot! We got lots of great shots of her with all her own makeup glory, and then a few without as much makeup on. We could have taken it all off, but the whole point of a birthday session with me is to celebrate a capture the child’s true current personality.
Tiny is so full of energy, and loves to roll her own way. She’s got her very own sense of style already! For this shoot, she even more two socks on one of her feet for good measure!
What a blast to photograph her! She was so much fun and so easy in front of the camera. I can’t wait to photograph her again!

Recently, I was asked to donate my services to a local elementary school auction. The lovely lady who was my contact was so very passionate about the event that I suggested to photograph her family so she’d be able to speak more directly about her own experience to bidders at the auction.
This family was so sweet - it was apparent right from the start that they enjoyed being with one another. They made faces at each other while we were doing the sessions. I loved seeing them teach each other, and have fun together.
When I asked her after the session what the hardest part was, she said it was deciding what to wear. “We wanted everyone to be complementary in the colors but not exactly the same. We were originally planning to have all of us in black or grey, but in the end I am happy that we brought the red in because it brings a pop of color to the pictures.”
“The session was very relaxed. It went quickly because Stacie knew how to pose us to get the shots. It was much easier and less stressful than I anticipated. When I saw the pictures I was pleased. I think the pictures capture us well.”
Thank you for a wonderful session!
