The Wolf's | Newborn Lifestyle Session

5.23.17

Stephanie and I met at work during our college years and while we didn't work together for very long, I felt like we just clicked. We lost touch for a while and reconnected on social media a few years ago. I was so excited when she reached out to me about newborn photos! She is one of those people who is a joy to be around and genuinely exudes such a positive energy.

A couple of weeks ago, she and her husband, along with their beloved 4-legged child, Penny, welcomed baby Thomas. I could not be more in love with their session - from their decor, to the way they included Penny, and the absolute perfection that Thomas is - it was amazing and dare I say, easy. It was the smoothest newborn session I've ever had, from start to finish, and I felt like I could've easily stayed all day.  

Wolf Family, you stole my heart. Thank you for allowing me to capture such a momentous time in your lives. I hope I'm lucky enough to create more memories with you in the future. <3

The Bryant's | Mama + Me Session

5.4.17

This is the second year in a row I've held mama + me sessions around Mother's Day. These have easily become one of my favorite sessions to photograph! I feel like mamas are usually so busy snapping photos of their little people and rarely get a chance to get in the frame with them. People often ask if I'll do "daddy + me" sessions, which I am not at all opposed to, but I don't think dads usually find the joy in a photography session quite like mamas do. If I had to describe getting pictures taken from (most) guys' point-of-views, I'd probably guess that it's comparable to having teeth pulled. :) 

The weather wasn't 100% ideal for these sessions, but everyone was awesome and truly made the best of it which I love. Starting with the beautiful B Family. It rained during half of their session and they still rocked it. I always have so much fun with these guys and have been so fortunate to photograph their growing family through the years. It's crazy to think that I first met them when Brax was a baby and now they are awaiting their third. 

B Family - thank you, for the bottom of my heart, for always putting your trust in me! It's always a pleasure and I love catching up at our sessions. <3

The Gentry's | Sherwood Gardens Family Session

5.3.17

I was hanging with my family on Easter Sunday when I received an email that I never expected in my wildest dreams. The email from Jordan started out that she and her family had just moved to the area and that her husband was going to be playing with the Orioles.

IMSORRYWHAT.

And then I may or may not have re-read it a few times to make sure it was real. And it was!

It took me a while to get over the initial shock that out of all the talented photographers in the Baltimore area, they found me. If you're a baseball fan, you may recognize the handsome guy below as one of the Orioles' outfielders. And those two pretty ladies with him? Absolute peaches. I can't even lie, I was so nervous leading up to their session. But as soon as I met Jordan, she put my mind at ease and was just as sweet as they come. And Little Miss E - my goodness, her personality is larger than life in the best way. You know how you can just tell when a kid has amazing parents? I got that sense about Craig + Jordan right away just based on how happy their little girl was. Not to mention, the palpable love she has for her daddy... it's melt-worthy.

 I am so grateful that our paths crossed and that I had the incredible opportunity to photograph this beautiful family. Truly my kinda people. <3

G Family - Thanks for spending a cloudy, flower-filled afternoon with me. It was such an honor to capture your sweet family. Welcome to Baltimore!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph this gorgeous family again, this time with their sweet baby girl, Emrie. Even for new parents of two, Kristen and Shawn were so relaxed and laid-back throughout our time together which was so refreshing. And Barrett is the cutest little dude and such a sweet big brother. I loved spending time with this brand new family of four!

W Family - thank you so much for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives. It was an honor and I'm so happy to have been a part of it. <3
