About Gayle Shrader Photography
Hello and thank you so much for your interest in Gayle Shrader Photography.
I am an on location, natural light photographer specializing in babies, children and families.
I am located in Frederick, Maryland and serve Frederick County, Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
I have had a lifelong love of photography and the magic that a photograph holds. I am a wife and a mom to two amazing children! Documenting and preserving memories for my children means everything to me. And helping you to preserve your family memories is what I am here for.
Capturing real expressions on a little ones face, seeing your child’s eyes light up as they discover something new, capturing their personality in a photograph. This and more is what I treasure. Please take a look around my site and see if my style is what you are looking for in a custom photographer. I hope to hear from you soon!
Photographs tell a story. They take you right back to the moment – the smells, the sounds, the emotions. All from a photograph.
I like to schedule portrait sessions for about 1-2 hours, so children can feel relaxed and get used to having someone with a camera around. I shoot strictly on location, so any special places you have in mind be sure they have available natural light. The best time for a portrait session is sunrise or 2 hours before sunset, location and time will vary according to the time of year.
If your child is getting photographed be sure to bring their favorite toys, snacks, and anything else that they love!
Newborn sessions will last 2-3 hours and are best to schedule for when baby is 5-10 days old.
Session prices include travel within a 30 mile radius of Frederick, MD.
A travel fee will be added to clients outside that radius
Session fee includes a pre-session consultation, the photographer’s time and talent to capture 20-30 final images, and a in-person viewing and ordering session.
