Jessica & Dayne | Engaged!

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 fianc√©, 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!

Lindsay & Michael {Engaged}

Have you ever met someone and immediately felt like old friends?

Babies

Welcome, Baby Avery!

Ahh, that sweet newborn phase. You can feel it the moment you walk through the front door: a beautiful, pristine nursery, a careful silence in the air, and utterly exhausted and yet over-the-moon joyful parents. That’s exactly what I found when I visited Katie and Kyle. I had the pleasure of photographing their maternity portraits […]

A fairytale location, and the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Yesterday I toured an absolutely AMAZING location that I cannot wait to share with you guys. From the moment I entered the gates at London Town & Gardens, it truly felt like I was walking into a fairytale. It’s the epitome of southern Maryland: stunning coastal views, historic tobacco barns, and of course: some of […]
