Awaiting Baby Eli


I met up with Amber and Justin at their home in Baltimore, Maryland at the tail end of an unseasonably warm weekend.  We had hoped that the sunny 70’s we had on Friday would last through Monday but no dice, it was cold and rainy and a lot more like the February we all know and have a hard time loving.

Hence we began our shoot indoors and in the most obvious place: the nursery that Amber and Justin have so lovingly prepared for their son.  The finishing touches had just gone on the day before so I felt honored to get the first official peek at the room.  But first I had to ask Perry if it was OK to take pictures since he clearly hasn’t relinquished his room to the baby yet…


A tree of birds peek out from behind the crib.  A wall display wall display of bright and and eclectic framed cards and prints offset the rocker and shelving.  There are some special hand mades on the walls too, including an awesome owl painting that Justin made for Amber in lieu of an owl decal they couldn’t quite find online and the gift of a family owl print made by another talented client of ours: Amber’s dear friend, Beth!





We did brave the great outdoors for a little bit to get some shots at a nearby park…



…and when we got back we posed the fun stuff.  Justin is pretty proud of his basement, its definitely their hang out joint in the house.  Beer bottles that he has collected from their many travels together line the walls above the pool table.  Lately, Amber has been folding the baby laundry on the pool table so they thought it would be fun to pose something there.  We arranged the balls to reveal Eli’s estimated due date, initially 3/24/11, and then we made the more recent estimation of today, 3/22, once we found another 2 ball to work with!  Today seems like the right day to blog these.




Here’s a slideshow with my favs and you can visit the online gallery by clicking here.  Amber and Justin, thanks for being such fun subjects and I wish you an amazing birth experience sometime very soon… Hey, maybe even today!  Can’t wait to hear the good news when Eli has arrived!
