SIMPLE. EARTHY. TIMELESS

What does purple kite mean?

When I realized that I wanted to shift my photography career to focus on newborn work, I knew I wanted it to represent something with meaning behind it. Babies, new lives, are miracles. Precious, tiny miracles.  In being the honored one who gets to capture their early days, it seemed right to dedicate this business which revolves  around the start of life  to a life who embodied the phrase of "living life to the fullest."

My older sister, Abbey, passed away when I was only three years old. She was born with 8 different heart defects, and she  lived eight full, beautiful years before she went to Heaven. My memories of her and I together are limited but vibrant, and usually involved a little bit of mischief but a lot of fun. She packed as much joy into those short 8 years than most people experience in a lifetime. We should all strive for that kind of life. 

Her favorite color was purple. Flying kites, watching them fly high and soar over us, just as she does every day, is something my family likes to do in remembrance of her. Hence, Purple Kite Photography.  

In this wildly unpredictable life, let's hold onto things that matter, find joy, and take every day by the horns just as Abbey did.

ABOUT MAGGIE

As a mother of 3 myself, Being able to capture these early days of your new little love is  something I am humbled to do and understand the importance of.

I offer both in home,  lifestyle newborn sessions, as well as studio newborn sessions. I prefer to do both sessions up to 2 weeks after baby is born to ensure they are still in that newborn sleepy stage sweet spot.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are done in your home, and are not posed. I focus on capturing your family with your baby in a way that is organic and unscripted. I strive to capture those ordinary, candid moments and turn them into art that you will cherish for a lifetime. 

Studio sessions take place in my studio located in Annapolis, MD. These sessions are styled using my top quality, beautifully made wraps and blankets and will focus on baby only. Parents and/or siblings may be included as an add-on.
