Sweet Ella | 6 month session | children's photography | Hagerstown, MD

The last time I saw Ella was at her Newborn Session. What a difference 6 months makes! She now has the most beautiful lashes, has the cutest chubby cheeks, and is so curious. I love the little smiles she gave every once in a while. 




Happy 6 month's Ella Girl! Your family loves you so much!!!

Nicole | Maternity photography | Hagerstown, MD

I always love photographing first time parents. The excitement and love they have for their unborn child is amazing to capture.  



July was a month full of rain. We met between rain storms at the Hagerstown City Park. Nicole and Sai chose this location because the loved the waterways, grottos, and beauty of the park. We are very lucky to have such a beautiful park in our town. 



We can't wait to meet you little one!

Andrew's One year session | Children's Photography | Portrait | Hagerstown, MD

One year sessions are so much fun to capture! I love seeing how much a one year old really takes in his/her surroundings. You can really see their personalities developing. Some are shy, some are rough and tumble go getters, and some are super silly with lots of laughter. 

At Andrews one year session, we decided to skip the studio and head outside. We met at Doub's Woods Park, Hagerstown on a pleasant summer day. 


I offered him a couple different toys to play with during our time together. The one thing he loved the most was the little fake cupcake that I handed him. 

It was so sweet to see him light up when his big sister was close. Even though the session was for Andrew, I couldn't help but photograph the bond these two have. 

I can't get over how cute his wispy hair is, and ohh my those blue eyes!!! Happy Birthday Andrew!!!

Sweet Oliver | Newborn Photography | Hagerstown | MD

Oliver was welcomed into the world by his lovely Mother, Father, and Brother. At 10 pounds, his mother deserves a trophy for his med free delivery! He is absolutely the sweetest most snuggly little guy!

Oliver

This family of 4 is now complete!


 Newborn photography is something I love to capture! The way the light kisses Oliver's cheek and toes, the positioning, and fabrics used add those beautiful details to complete each photo.

Using the natural light in my clients home is all I need to complete this amazing photograph.



As always, thank you for choosing me to photograph your little boy!

The perfect day

Chris and Lindsay celebrated their 10 years anniversary with the perfect vow renewal ceremony! They were joined by their closest family and friends to share their love once again. 

Lindsay chose the perfect party favors, flowers, and details for the day. 

Chris and Lindsay are proud parents of two lovely children. They were so excited to be part of their parents special day.

Their ceremony was full of laughter and a happy tears. Both children helped by reading to the crowd, and helping with the tie ceremony. 

The rain held out long enough for us to snap a couple photos of the Chris and Lindsay before the party began!

Cheers to many more years of Love you two!!! Thanks for having us photograph such a special moment in time!

Britton & Cece

For our first ever session, I met Britton & Cece at Surreybrooke Nursery. It's one of my favorite locations to photograph my clients at. Britton & Cece had a wonderful time walking, running, skipping, playing, and goofing off! 

Britton is 8 years old and has a quiet sweet disposition, while Cece is silly and spunky! These two couldn't be more different. Thats what I love about my families with multiple children. 

Mom requested at least one photo of the two of them together in hopes that they would look happy. I'm very happy to say that I captured a ton of photos with them together enjoying the day. Woo hoo! 

A beautiful Wedding with the most lovely Bride

I always like to check in with my brides to see what photograph or moment captured mattered the most to her. Recently I captured a very small video clip of a father walking his daughter to be married. There were so many photos that she loved, but in particular, she cried as she watched this beautiful moment. 



It reminds me that my journey as a wedding photographer doesn't stop at photographing beautiful images from the day. Even the smallest video clips add a little icing to the cake! 

Some of my Favorite photos from this years Easter mini | Hagerstown | Portrait Photography

So many great moments! I laughed so hard my abdominal muscles were sore the next day. These kiddos are such a delight to photograph!



Thanks to all of my families for making out to this years Easter Mini Session! 

Bri | Children's photography | Surreybrooke Nursery

I've had the pleasure of photographing Bri since she was two years old. I'll never forget chasing her around, as she giggled with joy. She still loves to be chased and tickled, even at 6 years old. 



She is the ultimate girly girl. The makeup, hair, nails, dresses, jewelry, she loves it all! But this girly girl also likes to get dirty and run free. In fact, she left our session with muddy pink shorts lol.



Bri is active in the Pageant world, and loves to ride horses in her spare time. At 6 years old she is so sweet, and so kind. She gives the biggest hugs, and brightens everyones day. I look forward to our next session together!

Trent | Frederick, MD | Senior Portrait

I first met Trent as a tween, and now it's hard to believe he is about to start his senior year in High School. Time really flies! 


After our session was rescheduled 3 times because of rain, we finally met in Frederick, MD for his senior portrait. Trent chose Market Street as the location for his shoot, and I can see why. It's cool and interesting, just like him. 



I hope you have a wonderful senior year. Good luck with your future college endeavors, and keep on keeping on!

Jeremy & Heather | Clearville, PA | Wedding Photography

Jeremy and Heather met while camping with a group of friends many years ago. It was so fitting to their love of the outdoors when they chose the Creekside Resort as their wedding venue. As Tina and I drove to the venue, we traveled what seemed like miles of winding roads through the forest with no houses to be seen. We both agreed that this was going to be the perfect outdoor location for their wedding. 

After Jeremy & Heather exchanged rings, I watched an old tradition for the first time. The "Jumping the Broom" is a ceremony in which the bride and groom, signify their entrance into a new life and their creation of a new family by symbolically "sweeping away" their former single lives, and jumping over the broom to enter upon a new adventure as wife and husband. 

After the ceremony Jeremy and Heather rode in the most beautiful horse drawn carriage to enjoy their first moments as husband and wife privately. This is something I encourage all of my couples to consider. 

The bridal party photos were so much fun to capture. This image was captured between takes and happens to be one of my favorites. It totally showcases each individuals personality. As a photographer, this is what I always hope to capture. The moment when everyone relaxes and enjoys being present with one another. 

My absolute favorite part of the wedding day is the Bride and Groom portraits. Capturing their love for one another in a romantic way with a beautiful private location is amazing to witness.  

Jeremy & Heather, we wish you the best! Thank you for choosing Hypnotic Imagery, LLC for your wedding photography. It was an amazing day!

Easter Picture's | Hagerstown, MD | Hypnotic Imagery, LLC

Every year I look forward to photographing Easter mini sessions. The pastel colors, floral designs, and sweet smiling faces are the perfect farewell to winter and hello to spring. 

I seriously can't get enough of the cuteness! The temperatures may be chilly outside, but the studio is warm and ready for my little friends. The best part about my studio is that I've got both natural light and studio lights ready to go. This year Darla and Oreo decided to make an appearance as the extra special surprise. The kids faces lit up when they met these sweet bunnies.  

Happy Easter to all of my wonderful families. I truly appreciate your loyalty, and love photographing your children and watching them grow. 

Andrew | Hagerstown, MD | One year session

Andrew's first year flew by. It seems like just yesterday I was photographing him at his newborn session. He was such a calm newborn, in fact, he slept almost the entire session. It's so amazing that you can predict a child's temperament as soon as they are born. Fast forward one year and this little guy is still super laid back. 



Andrew gave me the sweetest smiles throughout the session. He totally reminds me of the Gerber baby! Those round cheeks, wispy curls, and porcelain skin, I just can't. He was a joy to photograph, and I can't wait to watch him grow. I've got the best job ever!

Ryleigh | Hagerstown, MD | One year session

This little bundle of energy was a pleasure to photograph. Ryleigh is now one year old, and I was so excited to meet her for the first time. Just take a look at her sweet smile!

One year sessions are so much fun to photograph. Life is very exciting, emotions are absolutely pure, textures and toys are such a delight. This is what I love to capture in each and every one year session. 

I cannot wait to watch this little one grow! Our next session will be filled with running, jumping, and exploring as toddlers do. Little Miss Ryleigh leaves a little sparkle everywhere she goes!

Riley | Hagerstown, MD | Newborn Session

The Sturtz Family was so excited to welcome Riley into their lives. Those tiny toes and chubby cheeks are ohh so cute to photograph!  

As a mother of three boys, I get so excited to hold a newborn baby. My husband laughs each time I receive an order from Easy with a new headband, diaper cover, or blanket. I can't resist purchasing a new item for each Newborn I photograph. 

Once Riley had a good feed, she slept through the entire session. I have a feeling she will be a very laid back baby. It's amazing how you can predict a personality even as a Newborn. I look forward to watching her grow over the years! 

Kearan & Rhylan | Hagerstown, MD | Children's Photography

Kearan & Rhylan have been a joy to photograph every year since they were newborns. These two little guys are full of energy, love, and excitement. 

As a twin, I absolutely love to see the bond these two share. They will be forever friends, connected even if they are far apart. 

Happy 4th Birthday Kearan & Rhylan. It is such a joy to watch you grow!
