 The Bitsy Baby e-newsletter announces our photography workshops in Maryland, our baby model calls, photography classes, tips on taking better photos at home, preserving family memories, promotions, community events and much much more.

The ideal time for your newborn photography would be at your baby's one to two week mark based on your due date however we certainly welcome families to bring their newborn into the studio prior to this in the case of early births.  Our process is completely stress free leaving every baby (and parent) soothed and relaxed for your newborn photo session.  We avoid extreme time constraints and provide everything needed for your baby's first portrait session.  We highly recommend contacting us to reserve your baby's session while still pregnant to ensure availability as at this time we are taking limited bookings.

Rita, I picked up the photos today, and I wanted to tell you once again that they are amazing.  I knew what to expect since I ordered the prints, but my breath caught in my throat when I saw the hard copies for the first time.  You are so right that a soft copy cannot compare to the actual print.  I'm trying to force myself to save a little wall space for the next round of photos! ~~From the Parents of Baby Austin

Rita is AMAZING with our baby. I learned so much about how to handle our newborn just by watching her work. Seriously...I wanted to bring Rita home with us. She is so warm and caring with the baby and open and considerate with the adults. Rita brought her personality and talent together to make the photography session super fun. We bought the blooming bundle package and can't wait to see her again for our 3 month shots. And I haven't even described the photos. Breathtaking, creative, gorgeous, inspiring photos. Truly one-of-a-kind. I interviewed and researched over a dozen photogaphers in the area and felt none could provide the creativity, uniqueness, and personality I wanted for my baby's photos except Bitsy Baby. We had high expectations after reviewing Bitsy Baby's website, blog, and facebook sites and talking at length to Rita. All of our expectations were exceeded. You only have one chance to capture these precious memories. It sounds so cliche, but I can't believe how quickly my baby is growing. I am so glad I made the choice to work with Bitsy Baby photography. Don't settle for anything less with your baby's photos. ~ From the parents of Baby Austin

Rita is an amazing and wonderful photographer, a thorough and detailed business person, and just a warm and lovely person overall. A true pleasure to work with. She communicated everything perfectly and was always prompt on replies to emails and phone calls. I would recommend her to everyone and anyone! and plan to use her again for my child's one year photos. Both my husband and I can't say enough good things about her photography and her attention to detail. Perfect! ~ From Shayna Worley

Rita, It was my pleasure to be able to be your assistant for a day. To watch you do what you love and what you were born to do was a true gift. As a fellow photographer, I learned so much just by observing you. The way you interacted with the baby & mother was great. You can tell that you truly love what you do and it shows in every picture you take. I am going to compare it to when people cook and they say that you can tell that they put love in the cooking. That is how it is with your images. You are an extremely talented photographer and a beautiful person. Your work continues to amaze me. God bless you & your business ~ Love, Abigail Rios

We LOVED LOVED LOVED the pictures. You were such a pleasure to work with. You are such a sweet person and you are wonderful with children. We look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks again, Michelle Riordan
