Winter Maternity Shoot | Kaylin + Justin

Kaylin & Justin’s winter maternity shoot gave us the perfect opportunity to try out a few very different locations!

Kaylin and I met in college as theatre majors. And yes, we were and still are incredibly proud of our weirdness. We had many a good time those few years, and most notably was a spaghetti night. You see, the house I lived in was the “theatre house”. Be afraid, be very afraid. On the weekends (heck, weeknights too), our house had a bit of an open door policy for theatre and arts majors. One weekend we had a big spaghetti night, where an especially skilled 20 year old taught us the ways of adding sugar to make something salty and vice versa. It was an eye opening culinary experience for many of us who lived off us chips, mountain dew, and the italian bistro in town.

But I digress. Fast forward ten years and Kaylin her husband, Justin, are expecting their first child! I’m seriously so excited for them. And selfishly, I’m excited because it reconnected us, and that’s a gift these days.

Winter Maternity Shoot Couple

Kaylin and Justin live in Washington DC, and are a couple you want to know because they care deeply, and know how to laugh deeply. Kaylin has often said things that spark conversation and encourages me to dig deeper into the world I work and live in. That alone gives me respect for her. Their child is one lucky kid! 🙂

Settin’ the Scene

Ok, so about our winter maternity session! We started in a new studio downtown called PhotoMAB. Our switch was so last minute, but I’m so freaking grateful it was! I met the owner, Mel, who’s an incredible model and artist herself, as well as got to play with the windows and afternoon light. We had fun, I do believe.

Then we took to the streets of Downtown Frederick, where we captured photos near City Hall, in front of greenery and among the scattered historic-homes-turned-offices. Kaylin looks like a ding dang model. I mean LOOK AT HER.

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."

"Sarah creates a fun, creative, and safe environment that brings out the very best you to photograph. I had a great time in my headshot session with her and I ended up with beautiful photos (that actually look like me) I would be proud to bring into any audition room. 10/10 would recommend!"
