Little Lucas {Bitsy Baby Photography}

This family won a drawing at the Little Lamb Shop last year and decided to use their winning petite session when Lucas was a little older. He is now three months and knockin' em dead with those blue eyes =) He is certainly a doll and I don't have to tell you that, just look for yourself!

Bitsy Baby Newborn Photography made Flickr Explore!!

So I've always been a sucker for browsing all the absolutely AMAZING and inspiring images on Flickr...sometimes for hours on end. I've been a member of that photographic community for several years now. One thing I've found moving are the images that make Flickr Explore: a daily collection of 500 images from all over the world that are the most interesting according to the Flickr world =)

Well just yesterday one of my images made the cut, yaay, very awesome. Here it is.

A New Mom writes from the heart about Bitsy Baby! {maternity photography}

I had to share an excerpt from an article posted on Eye On Annapolis today. Statia is a sweet and dear soul I've worked with and is quickly becoming a friend. I am humbled and so thankful to be a part of this monumental season with her family. Statia's blog "Molding Into Mommy" is featured on the Eye On Annapolis Website, go by and have a good read!


"When my husband and I found out we were expecting, nine months seemed like an eternity. Before I knew it we were in the last trimester, registering for "baby goods" and packing our hospital bag. The time flew by. Now, as our baby girl grows older each day, I am amazed at the changes I see. Last week she learned to smile, and not those silly and involuntary "gas smiles" they do, but actually smile at me! As we make silly noises, faces, kiss her cheeks and act like fools, our daughter smiles like she is the happiest girl in the world. I am realizing how important it is to capture every second, as they grow so quickly.

During our pregnancy we had the privilege of working with a wonderful local photographer. Rita Lawrence, owner of Bitsy Baby Photography, captured wonderful images of my changing body and of my husband and I as we awaited the arrival of our little one. I was absolutely amazed at the quality of her work, attention to detail, and passion she showed for us. I knew the photos would be special, but until I viewed them I had no clue how much they would mean. Our photos honestly felt like a "family portrait"; as if our baby was already there. She so accurately captured the way we felt in our hearts.

Vivian is growing more each day and it is obvious that the newborn stage is fading right before our eyes. I am thankful that Rita will be with us on this journey of parenthood, creating family heirlooms for us to treasure for years to come. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Rita's images are worth an entire library. Since her clientele consists only of expectant parents, newborns, and babies, she is an expert at these special and short-lived stages."

The Little Sister {Newborn Photography}

Had to share this sweet Dec baby I finally got to meet last week. This was the first 1 month old that actually slept in the studio for me; what a great session! I have to admit, not posting "sneak peaks" has really helped speed up completing client galleries. I'm so glad I've made that change for this year and so are my clients. Wouldn't you enjoy viewing your complete gallery of images in less than a week =)
