Some milestones creep up on you as a parent. Most recently for me, it was the irrefutable fact that despite my best efforts, Caroline is definitely wearing 5T clothing. 5T?! As in, the very last size in the baby aisle at Target. Soon we’ll have to venture over to the girls section to shop for […]
The weather has been wreaking havoc on my shooting schedule recently, but after a few rainouts, I FINALLY got to meet Kylie and Brandon in Solomons for their engagement session! Rain clouds loomed overhead, but thankfully never let loose and I swear the sun even peeked out for a moment at the end. Kylie and […]
Oh my goodness, this family. I have photographed Candi and her sweet little crew several times now, and it’s always such a pleasure to have repeat clients that feel more like friends. You may remember her stunning maternity session from last spring, and this vintage-inspired generational portrait session was just as sweet! Quinn’s dad is […]
Oh, Jennifer and Chris. Their love story is twenty-five years in the making, and they threw the party of a lifetime on Saturday to celebrate it! From the moment I arrived at the venue, I knew I was with my people. Every single friend and family member was beaming with excitement and joy, thrilled that […]
As a newborn photographer, so often all I see is the happy ending: a beautiful, healthy baby. Tired but beaming parents. Older children becoming siblings. It’s wonderful, but so often, there’s so much more that goes unseen and undocumented: the endless waiting. The invasive tests and questions from well-meaning relatives. The crushing news received during […]
Grab something yummy and settle in, because I’ve got a treat for you this evening! I met Rebecca and Anthony for their engagement session on Friday evening, and these two totally rocked it. This was my first time meeting Anthony, and right away the two of them reminded me of myself and my husband, Adam! Rebecca is bubbly and outgoing, while Anthony is more softspoken. They’re a perfect pair!
A few weeks ago I received a text I’d been waiting on for months. My sweet client-friend, Stacy, was PREGNANT! You might remember her from this gorgeous portrait session back in December. Stacy and Austin had trouble getting pregnant, and after lots of prayers and one round of IVF, their little miracle is on the way!
The idea of a newborn mini session is something I’ve been wanting to offer for awhile, but it just seemed so unattainable. And then the lightbulb went off: what if I kept the baby wrapped, with diaper on, the entire time? A full newborn session takes three hours because so much time is spent soothing baby and cleaning up messes. This is NOT a glamorous job, y’all.
Jessica’s mom and I have known each other for years through work, and so I was thrilled when they contacted me about wedding and engagement portraits! Jess and her fiancé, Dayne, met at their alma mater, St. Mary’s College of Maryland. They both work at SMCM now and anyone from southern Maryland knows how gorgeous the campus is, so it was a no-brainer that we’d meet there for their engagement session!
