the k family….

July 24, 2015

The k family is close to my heart, as I too had two sisters growing up and we all three looked so differently from one another. However…. my dad lost his hair…. lol.

The k family was so sweet and so generous- they were just a dream to work with! I loved each girls’ personality, and I A D O R E the bright colors against the wooded backdrop.

I just got back from photographing a honey of a newborn- when I realized I never blogged their family session from this summer! Oops! Enclosed is the B family- with Mama barely expecting… ;)

Thanks B family!  And up next…. the newest little man to join their amazing family.  <3

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting the H family on their Kent Island, MD property for three years now. These boys are just so handsome! Watch out girls, because they are incredible charming and polite too!  I just love that each boy has their own look- but you know without a doubt they are family.

Thanks so much for coming back to Andrea Burns Photography again H family! See you next year!

I have truly fallen behind and slacked in my blogging. Life has a way of sneaking up on you- and blogging fell by the wayside. Now…. to play catch up!

I met the M family at the Hyatt Resort in Cambridge, MD for an evening of pictures.  Little did I know that this unknown-family-to-me had so many connections- we played seven degrees of separation all night.  :)  The M family was fun and fresh, and both kids such a delight!

Thanks M family for choosing Andrea Burns Photography!

 

My sister and brother-in-law embarked on a journey of adoption two and a half years ago. Mountains on paperwork later, they were finally approved, and then matched with baby S in the Fall of 2012. For the next 14 months it was a roller coaster of emotion, more paperwork, international flights, monthly newletters, a tearfully-missed first birthday, more paperwork, … and finally…. Merry Christmas 2013 “you can come get your son.” My sister and BIL left the US on the last day of 2103 childless, and returned a week later with their beautiful powerhouse of a son.

Our family rejoiced!

And now we can’t imagine life without him!  Adoption is beautiful!

OK, OK, I couldn’t help myself. I’m so sorry Amie- I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times. ;) Amie & I have swapped sessions around Christmas time for a couple of years now. Its so handy to have someone pretty close with matching styles. And our families get along famously!  Here is a sample of what I did for Amie.

Thanks for being one of the best Amie!

I just can’t get enough of the sweet D family. I’ve photographed their family several times now, and they are always such a joy. I’ve really enjoyed watching big brother A grow, and now his precious sister L. This is from last fall- I’m so sorry I’m behind in blogging- Grad Classes does that to a gal. ;)  I love shooting in Downtown Annapolis.  Such a variety of textures and sweet little hide-away spots.

Thanks for coming back again and again D family!

I love when repeat clients return to me. There is always something special in knowing that they loved their images so much the first time around- that they want to return again and again. The S Family is no exception- except this time they wanted an extended family session on their family’s property.  And what gorgeous property it is!  And the light that day?  Ah-Mazing!  This family?  Even more gracious and amazing in person.  I’ve inducted myself as an honorary family member.  That’s how much I.  Love.  Them,

Thank you so much C-S family!  See you at dinner soon!  ;)

We couldn’t have picked a nicer summer evening for the G Family’s session at the Hyatt Regency Resort in Cambridge, MD. The light was perfect, the temperature was just right and my models were incredibly sweet to work with! Its rare that I get to photograph a red head, so I was tickled pink when saw that gorgeous hue!

Thanks for everything G family!

I love my kids!
