Front Porch Mini Session in Owings, MD | The M Family

What I have loved about my front porch mini sessions is how different each one has been. The clients in my first session were getting ready to move and leaving a house they loved and cherished; it was a place I had visited a few times before and such a special place for their family.

I had one that combined a maternity session with a front porch mini session. (Blog coming soon!) Other sessions have been more traditional, but a few things have stood out to me: the kids and family have been far from shy. I know some families have really limited their interactions since the coronavirus pandemic started, and because of this, the kids are so excited to see someone who is not a relative. The laughter and enthusiasm has been easy to capture.

Even though some states are easing restrictions, I am continuing to only do socially distanced sessions; I know many people are ready to be “normal”, but I have a son who has a weak immune system and been on a nebulizer twice in the last year. We are taking precautions to keep him safe. So, I’ll keep my zoom lenses on unless I want to capture the entire scene around you and follow you and your family around from a safe distance.

A front porch mini session is also a fantastic investment for your money. They are a bit cheaper than my other sessions, so if you can’t typically afford my work, these may be a great way for you to get some updated images. I also love how easy it is to weave in pets for a shot or two!

To book your front porch mini session or any other outdoor session, just visit my contact page or e-mail me at Right now, I’m only booking sessions for June and July, and please know that I will be abiding by state and county laws for sessions, so if there is a covid-19 spike again and a stay-at-home order is re-issued with non-essential businesses closed again, I will be following those orders.

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.
