Maryland Family Photographer | L Family

As a Maryland family photographer, I feel like we see all sorts of weather. Today is rainy and cold, but just last week we were in the 90s despite it being early October. I’m not sure how, but my fall families so far have had amazing weather, and this family, in particular, ended up having the most magical weather for their family session. Golden hour proved to be beautiful for their September family session, which is great because we were really bundled up for their session last December!

I love play, and I suggested something this family had never done! This little guy had never been on his dad’s shoulders before this session! He was a bit nervous initially, but as you can see from the photos, he loved being up high.

This family’s session was very typical of how I run my family sessions! I love when families interact with each other. I try to have them play games, I want them to look at each other and connect! Once everyone is comfortable, I’ll tell everyone to look at me and will try to get some nice shots where everyone is looking at the camera, but my heart is happiest when I see people interacting with each other with genuine smiles.

I like to get different combinations with different backgrounds, and I really love to get some images of mom and dad solo when the kiddos are tired at the end! This is one of my sweetest families, and I can’t wait to photograph them again next year!

If you would like to book a session, I am booking for December and 2020, so contact me today through my contact page or by e-mailing me at to book a session. My only fall openings are November 2. I have openings still for my holiday minis at the Christmas tree farm! Details are on the Facebook page. Details also under events on my Facebook page!

Meet Teresa


Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
