A Maryland Baby Photographer Captures Your Baby's Warm Glow

New Baby
You will always remember the first time holding your magical little one – the perfect fingers and toes and the tiny eyelids.  For that instant, life stops and is hung suspended in the sudden rush of love.
What we only barely remember is the weeks right before and after the birth. First, when being pregnant is all you know and all you can think about is the countdown to the arrival.  And later with your newborn, as time flies by in a flurry of sleepless nights and joy-filled days.  Those moments are a blur, allusive as they are important.  
That’s why a custom photography experience is truly priceless.  Maternity and newborn photos are precious snapshots of times you will never have again, captured forever as a tangible, treasured memory.  Life will never be the same, and neither will your baby. Take it all in, so when you look at your toddler, or your teenager, you can see with awe how it all began.

Gifting Time
As a new parent, you know that there are countless things that you will have to learn, know, and remember.  But don’t forget to take the time to cherish each day for what it is, for the small things and the precious moments. Making pictures a priority is, in a way, saving those beautiful memories for later.
Amidst the baby clothes and toys that will soon be outgrown and the many blankets that will go unused, consider a new and irreplaceable gift for the loved one who is expecting.  Giving a newborn (or maternity) photography session as a shower gift will be remembered far past the swing or car seat, and be even more valuable.

Purely Baby
Knowing that your baby is the only thing that matters in the world, we love to bring out that beautiful bliss in our photographs.  We choose not to use many silly props, featuring instead the expressions and mannerisms that are unique to your baby at this time of his or her life.  Our simple backdrops complement the sweetness of your baby’s hair, skin and eyes, bringing each of these details naturally into focus.  
Your baby is at the heart of our photography, and our goal is to naturally highlight every distinct smile and the essence of his or her warm glow.  At Bitsy Baby, we take our job as your Maryland baby photographer seriously, knowing that this is a time you will never get back.  Helping you with a way to see your newborn forever brings us joy, but not nearly as much joy as we know it will bring you.  

Although our specialty is in maternity and newborn photography, we love getting to see your little one grow too!  We welcome return visits to show your little one smiling, sitting, standing and more unforgettable milestones.  Every step of this wonderful journey should be followed with care, and at Bitsy Baby we’ll treat your treasured time as our own.
