Three Brothers: Dylan’s Newborn Session

February 27th, 2014

Dylan was born into a family with two older brothers.  He is the third and he is strong and beautiful and undoubtedly loved.  Only one of those brothers was there to greet him in person on his birthday, but his older brother, Conner was definitely there.  Conner passed away unexpectedly at just over a year old. It is every mother’s nightmare, but for this family it is a part of their story.  One could expect walking into a home who has lost a child to have overwhelming sadness, but that is certainly not the case. Instead it is packed more snuggles, more gratitude and more love. From my time with this sweet family it is so abundantly clear he has two big brothers looking out for them and that his presence brings something so special into this family. Welcome to the world Dylan: you are already so welcomed and loved.

Spring Announcements: Camera Classes and Cherry Blossoms

February 24th, 2014

With snow still on the ground, and somehow still in the forecast, it is hard to believe that spring is upon us.  This past weekends warmer temperatures certainly gave us a glimpse and because of that we are going to go ahead and ignore the cold and think spring.  There are two opportunities I am really looking forward to and hope to see you there!

“Let’s Click” Beginning Photography Class- Saturday March 8th
I have had many people inquire about learning the basics of photography and shooting manually.  I love teaching and encouraging anyone who loves a camera so I am offering a small intro class “Let’s Click” on Saturday March 8th.  The class will be approximately three hours long and limited in size. The cost is $125 per person and will include a meal and course materials. If you are interested please send me an email at brittanydefrehnphotography at

Cherry Blossom Sessions- Saturday April 5th and Sunday April 6th
Every year, I head down to the Cherry Blossoms to give my clients a chance for updated portraits. With the most recent Cherry Blossom peak bloom forecast out, the dates are now set; the morning of April 5th and evening of April 6th.  These sessions will be $200 for past BDP clients and include a session 30 mins in length, 10-15 digital files and are available to both families and couples. To book your session, please send me an email at brittanydefrehnphotography at


Going to the Chapel

February 11th, 2014

Gorgeous portraits are one thing, but genuine candid moments like this one are another.  Surrounded by her friends and excited to head to the church to see her groom, this brief glance over her shoulder says it all.  Ali you were gorgeous. xoxo

A Winter Bouquet

February 6th, 2014

I know many of us have had enough of winter here in Maryland.  Between the continuous cold, the many cancellations, the slippery roads, one can quickly forget the fun things about the season.  I am a sucker for winter weddings and all their romance and I especially love when brides who embrace the winter white of the season.

Thanks to My Flower Box for Ali’s gorgeous winter bouquet.
