By now, The Collins Family are pretty much regulars around ZEP. I made a comment during this session that I could basically use this family as a way to track my progression as a photographer, because I've been photographing them for nearly the entire life of their son, Ryder! They're always so much fun to be around, and it's been great watching them grow as a family!
I hope to continue to follow their progress and spend time with them behind and in front of the camera, for many more years to come!Read More
Brett and Monica have a beautiful family, and it was such a joy to photograph them in the peak of the Autumn Colors. A quick trip to scenic Piney Run Park and we were on our way to making magic. Both of their kids were absolute joys, and it was nice to be able to capture the memories in the beautiful weather. This was the first shoot of the Fall, and certainly won't be the last, as we get into my favorite time of the year to shoot photos!

I'm not going to steal Cambria's glory, here, but you should probably know that as of March 28th, this little lady will be hitting her "One Year Cancer-Free" mark! You can read more of Cambria's story here.
Cambria's mother informed me that she was planning on doing her part to help other children like her, and was going to be hosting a lemonade stand of her own, in honor of the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. In order to help better promote the stand, Cambria's mother asked me to do a session with her daughter, and I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the results. Cambria's such a trooper, and was an absolute joy to photograph. If you'd like to help her cause, you can donate here and once you've done that, click through to see more photos!Read More
You've not seen these two on the site before, but I swear that they grow a few years every time I see them! Landon and Logan have lived more in their one year on this Earth than most babies will live in their first 10 years. Both children are blessings to their parents, and you can just tell by watching them that they both know they're something special.
That being said, you can also tell by watching them that there's something slightly mischievous going on in their minds, so it was no surprise that these two took to a "Cake Smash" shoot like fish take to water!
These two were so much fun, and I'm so glad we were able to get some amazing reactions out of them both! Make sure to click through the post to see more photos from our session!Read More
Kimberly and Michael presented me with a nice distraction from what ended up being the "Christmas of Newborns" that I went through in 2014. All-in-all, ZEP shot almost a dozen children (newborn and older) for the holidays this year, and sometimes it's just nice to have a little break with people who can actually speak your language!
Kimberly and Michael were looking for a fun, outdoor style shoot to use for the Christmas cards, so we went to one of my favorite spots for their session. The McKeldin Area of Patapsco Park offers some beautiful scenery, and some of these spots should look familiar from previous sessions.
These two were a lot of fun, and more photos from their session can be seen below.Read More
Baby Tyler might have been one of the most cooperative, playful and easiest-to-work-with newborns that I had the pleasure of shooting in 2014, and I think that really comes through in the photos. I'm also really lucky, in that I've also had the pleasure of capturing the moments that happened BEFORE Tyler was born. WAY BEFORE.
Lisa and Ryan have a real cutie on their hands, and they're both going to make great parents. My wife and I are very lucky to have their family as our friends, and I can't wait to capture many more memories of their family in the future.

With one session already under our belt, Baby Hannah demanded to be in front of my camera for a quick Christmas session, and I was more than happy to oblige. Hannah makes some of the best faces, and her folks are going to be in a lot of trouble when she starts breaking hearts and getting her way!
I look forward to watching this little gal grow up, and hope that we have many more sessions together!

Jackson's parents, Chris and Kristin, are both incredibly blessed to have a precious little guy like Jackson. Whether it's cuddles on the couch, or tales of future fishing trips, Jackson has a big, bright future ahead of him. Capturing this little guy was a lot of fun, because Chris and Kristin knew exactly what they wanted out of their session, and Jackson had no problem cooperating for the shoot!

Baby Hannah's story with ZEP is a interesting and special one. Hannah's mother contacted me a few months before she was born asking if I would be willing to shoot her newborn photos. Of course, I said yes, even after finding out that Hannah was due to arrive very close to the arrival of our own baby. We set the date and put things to the side for a bit.
As things always have a way of happening certain ways, a day or two after Hannah's birth day, we scheduled our session with the warning that we might need to reschedule in the event that our baby decided to come. Sure enough, two days before our scheduled session, my wife went into labor, and we were joined by little baby Noah.
But Hannah and her parents insisted they still wanted photos, and it's so good that they were persistent, because we got some amazingly adorable shots of this little gal. I'm looking forward to many more sessions, watching this little girl grow up!Read More
It's been almost a year since this precious little gal turned one year old, and in that year she's somehow managed to get even cuter! Lily and her family travelled all the way to Baltimore to spend some time in studio with me, and we got some fantastic shots!

On a crisp Autumn day (a lot crisper than we thought it would be), I was joined by little Harrison and his wonderful parents. There must be something with parents telling me that they're worried their little tike is "shy" and "might be difficult to photograph", because I've been blessed enough to be able to call them all liars!
Harrison shook off the cold weather and gave us some great faces, and made for a fantastic shoot!Read More
It's not very often that you can say you've been a part of someone's life since the very beginning, and it's even more rare to note that you've literally documented some of the major milestones in their young life. For the past year I've had the absolute joy of documenting Addyson's life, starting from the time before she was even born all the way up until her very first birthdayRead More
One of the things I try my hardest to do, as a photographer, is respect the wishes of my clients no matter what. A lot of times, those wishes are simply "Can you hold off on sharing these with your readers until I've had a chance to surprise my family". That's not a very difficult wish to fulfill, and one that I'm more than happy to oblige. Unfortunately, as the years keep passing by, this means that I'm more likely to forget to actually share those photos once the "proof period" has expired. I was really surprised (and disappointed) to have recently discovered that I forgot to share one of my favorite family sessions from 2012, the Murray Family.Read More
I don't need to tell you who this precious little Christmas Elf is, do I? Seriously, how could you forget this little princess that started out adorable and just never stopped being so darn cute? We had a lot of fun shooting for this year's Christmas card, and I hope that little Addy's parents are pleased with these photos because baby photos just don't get any cuter!
I'm not going to delay the rest of this preview. On with the photos.
In the realm of clients, few things make this photographer happier than repeats. Sure, it's always great when one family enjoys my photos enough to recommend me to another family, but there are few joys more pure than knowing that a family enjoyed my work so much that they're willing to bring me back and have them capture more memories.
This was the case with the Covert family!
I had the pleasure of capturing the first few days of their adorable baby girl, Makenna, and was delighted to find out that they were so happy with their photos, they wanted to book me for a session for Christmas cards, and they wanted to bring along Morgan's sister and family.
I love a session like this, because the families really play well off of each other and it makes for some great photos. I can't wait to continue to see how baby Makenna continues to grow up and follow along with her family! More photos down below...
