A few weeks ago my family got to take a glorious trip to Myrtle Beach. It was our first time there, and we absolutely loved every moment.  We are beach bums… we normally spend 6 to 8 hours on the beach every day, before we head out for various adventures.  Our favorite excursion?  Alligator Adventure, near Barefoot Landing.  My kids LOVED petting a baby gator and watching the live feedings.  I loved reconnecting with my precious 4 people, and stocking up on my Vitamin D.

Once upon a time on June 1st, 2013– a girl finally got to marry her prince charming. Stephanie and Jay have been happily together for a long time- they wanted to make *everything* just right for their sacred day.  And what a day it was!  It was gloriously beautiful- and Stephanie and Jay tied the knot with all of their dearest friends and family in attendance.  They got married at the beautiful United Methodist Church in Chestertown, MD,  and then moved to the Moose Lodge for their reception.

This final picture above- is so special to them. Taken on the grounds of their Reception- See that tiny white building off in the distance? Their first home together. Everyone say…. “awwwwww!”  Thanks Mr. & Mrs. J for such a great time!

Mrs. N brought adorable Grant to me in Denton, MD for a birthday shoot. Grant had turned two, and what a better way to document his precious growth?!? Grant was just a doll, he flirted, he listened well, and he showed both his Mama & his Gramma how much he loved them. I just loved this session!

Gramma ordered an album of the session, and it turned out so cute, if I say so myself!  Andrea Burns Photography offers high quality, lay flat albums, with thick archival photographic pages.

Thanks for choosing Andrea Burns Photography N family!

I love it when the stars can finally align, and a wish you’ve wished for finally comes true.  I’ve known Rachel a verrrry long time.  (We won’t admit how long, mmm’kay?)  We both moved away from home years ago.  Over the last several years I’ve photographed various members and events within her extended family.  And each time she’d email me… “Please come to [ ] and shoot us!”

Finally… FINALLY, our locations and schedules lined up, and I spent a lovely evening with a family who genuinely gets along so well, that I asked her for parenting advice, LOL! Rachel- I truly hope you love what you see.  And though our distance is several hundred miles apart— our friendship is not.

Thanks A family for coming all that way, just to see lil’ ole’ me.

Just a few of me and my girl. Look at how much she’s changed from our old picture in my profile photo above! It was blazing hot, but I was determined to get these while the Queen Anne’s Lace was still in bloom.

Thanks for stopping in. Have you had a Mommy & Me photo taken recently?

RE: Family Photographs at the Hyatt

My family recently spent the weekend at your hotel in celebration of my parent’s 40th anniversary. My brothers and I decided to have family photos taken and give them to my parents as a gift of memories for years to come. When I called the hotel to find the name of a photographer the person I spoke with only had names of wedding photographers. Feeling at a loss, I searched the internet for local photographers. After spending hours online, I finally decided to call Andrea Burns. Her website showcased amazing family pictures and I could just tell that she would provide me with quality pictures. Andrea was quick to call me back and agreed to meet us during our stay. She was flexible with times and even suggested a rain date. Andrea is a local woman and knows the Hyatt landscape well.

On the evening we were supposed to meet for pictures it was overcast and rainy. Andrea and I agreed to cancel that night and have them done the following evening (at no extra charge). The following evening my entire family, including three grandchildren under the age of five met Andrea in the lobby of the hotel. She was quick to begin as she understood working with children is like working with a ticking time bomb. Needless to say the session went well and we all LOVE the pictures. They brought tears to my mother’s eyes and we are so happy that Andrea was able to capture our reunion with such quality.

It is without hesitation that I would like to suggest that you add Andrea Burns to your local list of photographers for family photographs. Given that The Hyatt has such beautiful scenery and is so family friendly I would think that many other families would love to take capture priceless memories of their stay.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions. I have attached a shot of the group.

Garrett & Jillian’s Silver Swan Bayside wedding was gorgeous in every WINDY way. The details were immaculate, the bride absolutely stunning, the groom was dashing… their venue was breathtaking. Mother Nature wanted to also show up and give the gift of her strong breezes that day. But it didn’t stop Garrett & Jillian from stepping into life together as husband as wife.

What can I say about my friend F and company? The face that she makes my job incredibly easy? That she hasn’t gotten sick of me yet, and this is her 5th time back? That all of her children are so smart and generous and genuinely love one another? That they are all laid back and helpful? All of that is completely true, and we couldn’t have had a better afternoon in downtown Annapolis. All day we had been watching the weather… it had been 80% chance of thunderstorms all day. We decided to go for it, and it couldn’t have gone better. In fact, as soon as we wrapped up the session, the skies opened, for the rest of the night!

Onto their family images-

Thanks B family!  I always LOVE seeing you!

Just look at how gorgeous Mama Katherine is! She is from Easton, Maryland and wanted to celebrate this special time with light-filled maternity portraits.  If Baby Boy is anything like his mama, he is going to be so sweet and kind and genuinely beautiful inside and out!  I had a great time with Katherine and can’t wait to start shooting little baby J.

Thanks for choosing Andrea Burns photography, Katherine!

I might be a little biased, because Mrs. S is one of my best friends… but this entire session was just beautiful!  A storm was rolling in, so it was both windy and grey, but we worked it fast and got it done!  I love each member of this family… from Mr. S who dances Just Dance wildy with his daughter at her birthday party, to the brothers D & D who are complete contrasts of silly and serious, to little M who generously shares her sparkle shoes with my Audrey, to Mrs. S… who was clearly and graciously put in my path last year and we gravitated like magnets and now I wonder how I ever lived without her.  Our closets are now almost clones of each others, and whatever I don’t own, she lends easily, lol!  ;)

***PS- NO chickens were harmed in the making of these family images. ;)
