Andrew contacted me on a Thursday. He was planning a proposal to his girlfriend on Saturday- and he wanted it secretly documented. I may have been more excited than he about this…. Anyways- we hatched a plan, and I tried not to cry as it unfolded.  It was a gorgeous fall morning in St. Michaels, MD- and Lauren was here under the ruse of a farmer’s market.

I love surprise proposals! This was awesome :)

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.

samantha posted the following on January 2, 2015 at 6:15 pm.

LOVE these!! Especially the last few…that’s a lot of kids but you rocked it!

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!

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed a maternity session. I just love them! Mama’s to be are always so beautiful and glowing…. they are also excited about having their pictures taken and preserving this moment in life… this moment right before everything changes forever….

Amie was no exception- she is just radiant! She’s the mama-to-be of her fifth (you read that right- 5th!) boy. And they are hands-down- one of the loveliest families ever. Each boy so sweet and well mannered… Amie- how do you do it?  Without further ado- miss Amie Brady herself!

Today, I went to the beacfh front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year olld daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a heermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is eentirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

It’s been a long time since I shot a studio session- and I couldn’t be happier with how these images turned out. Of course it totally helps that Miss L was just as precious as they come. So smiley… such personality… such beauty! I am truly blessed with such wonderful clients to photograph!  Behold…. and take in All. Of. The. Cuteness!!!!! You won’t be able to resist….

These are so lovely!

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!

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.

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.

Baby A had been waited for… and waited for… and waited for. And HE was a complete surprise, since mom & dad had decided to wait to see just what Baby was.  And they couldn’t have been more peaked.  And Baby A couldn’t be more loved.  Both of his big brothers love to dote and care for him.  One of the most beautiful families I know– go ahead— take a peak….

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,
