Wide Awake | Bowie Newborn Photographer | Nina K Photography

So many times the goal when photographing newborns is to get them sound asleep, because that makes for those cute, curled up shots, and that is always adorable…BUT it is also adorable when a newborn baby is wide awake! Their eyes are so bright and curious, even if they can’t see much yet.  They really seem like they are seeing the world for the first time and trying to figure out just what they are doing here!

This baby girl was just that. She was beautiful and so curious and content…and look at her skin! Flawless! Her parents were just over the moon for her…and her dad is pretty much wrapped around her finger for life!

Their house was beautiful, which is always a plus for photos, and her room perfectly girly.

And in the end, she even went to sleep for a few more shots 🙂newborn with bright eyesmaryland newborn photographernewborn white blanket basketblack and white family photonewborn on dads chestmaryland newbornnewborn lipsnewborn in lace photographybaby sleeping

Fenway Park Wedding | Boston Wedding Photographer | Nina K Photography


I love Boston. I have always wanted to shoot a wedding in Boston. So when my cousin Annette and her fiancé, Sean, asked me to photograph their wedding at Fenway Park, I was SO excited.

Boston has such a cool vibe. The people…like seriously I never met a person that wasn’t super friendly and helpful. And, there are so many different little towns and areas to discover.

Annette was glowing all day. She is huge Disney fan and really looked like a Disney princess with her big smile and beautiful dress.

They are huge hockey fans, too, so it made sense that Annette got ready in the Boston U Hockey themed room at the gorgeous Hotel Commonwealth.

Their ceremony was at the gorgeous St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.  Not a detail was missed.

Their reception was even hockey-themed! It began with an awesome cocktail hour overlooking Fenway Park, with music by Kavoossi Music, and donut bar (amazing).  It was such a great time.  The whole day was beautiful, classy, and fun.

Mother Daughter Photos | Severna Park Photographer | Nina K Photography

Mother-daughter photo sessions are some of my favorite. There is nothing quite like a mom and her daughter and the connection they have. A little girl looks up to her mom like no one else.

Photographing these sessions is so fun for me because they are FULL of love and emotion, even if they don’t know it. I have little girls, and let me tell you, it’s the best. (Boy moms, I know little boys are awesome too!)

Abby and her daughter have that special connection. Her little girl is freakin’ adorable. She loves horses, she’s full of life, and is a blast to photograph.  This year was a special one for them…and these photos show their strong bond.little girl peeking through fencemother daughter on fencemom girl kiss

Silver Swan Bayside Wedding | Kent Island Photographer | Nina K Photography

Stephanie and Phillip are an awesome couple. She’s a comedian, he’s a writer. From the moment I met them, I knew their wedding was going to be a great time. And the best part, their theme was Mexican!

I mean queso, salsa and chips for the cocktail hour- fantastic! Taco bars, tequila, limes, hot sauce…even the favors were little Mexican clay pots that served as shot glasses.  I love creative people!

I also love weddings on the water. I think I’ve said that a million times. Silver Swan Bayside is an awesome venue, located in Kent Island, MD. They have such a nice spot on the water and the sunsets never disappoint.  I was so happy that Stephanie and Phillip decided to get married there!

Everything went beautifully and their friends and family are so much fun! It was a perfect day.

Newborn Posing | Millersville Newborn Photographer | Nina K Photography

Posing a newborn is not always an easy task and definitely takes a lot of patience.  The hardest part is usually waiting for them to fall into that deep sleep so you can bend them and position them how you like..but I love it.  Their bodies are still so similar to how they were in the womb (small and flexible), so moving them around is still easy. They usually love to be curled up in a little ball, nice and warm 🙂

I have had the pleasure of working with the Dey family for quite a few years.  When I met them, Rob had two sons. Rob and Erin are awesome parents. I was so excited to hear they were having their first child together and that I would get to capture the process!

Erin is such a stunning mom and her glow was impossible to miss. The utter joy I saw in her face during these sessions still makes me so happy when I look at these photos.  Baby Maggie is adorable! What a great addition to a sweet family.
