This is where your dress will be photographed, candid “hanging out” moments, all of your details, and even emotional moments such as putting on your wedding dress. This […]
If you’re new around here, you might be looking around my website and thinking, “wait a minute! I only see photos of babies and families!

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend Rachel Clarke’s very first workshop, and I am SO thankful for the experience! I first discovered her work just a few weeks ago while scrolling through Instagram and when I saw the itinerary for the workshop, I just had to jump at the chance. Led by […]
Jessica & Dayne | Mechanicsville, Maryland I cannot believe the 2018 wedding season has come to an end! Jess and Dayne were our last couple to tie the knot this year, and we couldn’t have asked for better humans to end the season with.

It’s been three days since Rebecca and Anthony’s wedding, and I’m still getting teary eyed thinking about it! Every little thing about their day was just so raw, real, and refreshingly authentic.

My grandmother’s health had in decline for awhile, and she made the heartbreaking decision to end treatment and come home under hospice care. With family gathered here in Maryland to help out and say goodbyes, my sister, Taylor, and her fiancé, David, put a wonderful plan in motion.
“What are you doing tomorrow at 2:30?”, she texted me, “David and I are getting married!”
And just like that, a beautiful wedding was planned in less than 18 hours’ notice, all so that our sweet Momo could be there to witness it.
