Delaware Family & Newborn Photographer

Playfully (un)posed and stress-free family photography in Delaware and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Delaware family Photography

Frame-worthy candids for easy-going families.

With over 15 years of experience as a Delaware family and newborn photographer, I've crafted a playful approach to guide your family into natural connections that photograph effortlessly, putting children (and parents!) at ease. From assistance with outfit styling to location selection, I make this a simple, stress-free, and authentically enjoyable experience for busy families.

I'm AnneMarie

I create honest photographs to help us remember. 

I blinked and my first baby boy is now taller than me. As a mother to three swiftly growing children, and a family photographer for over 15 years, I'm a witness to the truth that childhood passes far too quickly. I know how busy life is, and how much effort goes into preparing for family portraits. This is why I've created a relaxed and refined approach to capturing the beauty amidst the chaos of family life.

MY why

Motherhood deserves more than a selfie. 

We moms are so busy doing all the things for our family, and yet we're often left out of the photographic memories.

My hope is for you to feel seen and adored through my work, because you were there too. My images have the power to transport you back to this season of life years from now.  I take the pictures you don't yet know you need, but you will treasure in just a short time. A visual love-letter to you that grows in value as the years pass. Whether we are at your home or at a favorite park outside of Wilmington, DE or near the Delaware shore, we are going to bottle up lots of love to get you through those hard days of motherhood.

“AnneMarie is a master at her craft in every sense."

I delayed scheduling our family photography for months because I felt our rambunctious 2 year old could not be contained, but AnneMarie leaned into her energy and artfully captured the movement and magic of this season of our lives in an authentic yet ethereal way. Frame after frame she led our family of six to the most beautiful golden light and landscapes with gentleness, playfulness, and an easy patience. These are the family portraits of our dreams.

“I cannot rave enough about AnneMarie's work!”

She is incredible at what she does and the results are amazing. She was able to capture the perfect balance of energy, fun, and sweetness of my boys. The session itself was casual, fun, and stress free. She made us all feel at ease and never felt like we were "messing up" the shots with their crazy, loud personalities. The photos are more than I could have asked for and I am so thrilled we did this on our Delaware beach vacation!

“AnneMarie is incredibly talented and has a gift for capturing authentic connection among families"

I can't say enough how much the images captured by AnneMarie mean to me, they truly are priceless! She was wonderful to work with during the entire process - from scheduling the session to helping me pick out clothes for my 3 kids to being so patient with my children and letting them just have fun with the experience. My oldest son even said afterwards that he had a lot of fun and he got to hug mommy a lot! I can't wait to schedule another session soon! You won't regret choosing AnneMarie to capture your family's precious moments!
