Jessica & Dayne | Engaged!

May 16, 2018

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!

A Morning with the Lopes Family

May 31, 2017

This family is SO ridiculously sweet! Dennisse and I totally hit it off during her consultation, chatting away like old friends for the better part of an hour late one evening several weeks before the session. A few days later I receive an email from Dennisse – she’d broken her foot (ouch!) but still wanted […]

Lindsay & Michael {Engaged}

May 21, 2017

Have you ever met someone and immediately felt like old friends? Sometimes within just the space of an hour, you can go from formal introductory handshakes to big hugs goodbye, with smiles and stories fueling the soul for days to come afterward.

Welcome, Baby Avery!

May 17, 2017

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 […]
