My name is Free Akins. I am an Air Force veteran (Command and Control and AFRCC). I am located in Southern Maryland and serve Maryland, Virginia, DC, Delaware & Pennsylvania. I am a member of the Charles County Arts Alliance, Charles County Chamber of Commerce, Professional Photographers of America. My adult day jobs included Project Manager and business analyst.
My interests are very diverse; I love my family (3 kiddos and 4 fur kids), great coffee, red wine, baking, and chocolate. I knit, crochet, garden, sew, and my super power is being able to re-purpose anything with a can of spray paint and a hot-glue gun. In 2017 we are getting bee hives.
I like to keep sessions light and stress-free. A portrait session can be a glamour photoshoot and pamper day, family portraits, christening, bar/bat mitzvah, boudoir, best friends pamper day, newborn and birth stories, maternity, engagement, professional headshot, or senior portraits. I believe there is no scripting to children or families and I prefer to photograph families in their homes, interacting, and never forced. We can spend the day together to capture a day in the life of your family. There are so many possibilities!
I take away the effort of having beautiful images in your home. After your session you will review your prints and choose only the ones you love. Your matted 8x10 prints and a thumb drive, with a high resolution digital copy of all the prints your purchase, are placed in a handmade portfolio box.
All portrait sessions are about 2 hours; we can photograph in your home, in my studio, outside, or at your office. Our studio is in our home in Waldorf, MD 20695.
No fuss - no complicated packages to pick from.
