Emily + Tim got married on September 23 at Jefferson Patterson Park and it was absolutely magical! We were nervous about the rainy weather, but there was just enough sunshine to keep us dry and just enough rain to get some adorable umbrella photos! I was super impressed by all of their DIY decor and even more impressed by the love that surrounded them. My face was hurting from smiling after this one! It was an honor to be a part of Emily + Tim's love story and I know they will have a marriage full of love, laughs, and adventures together. Congrats again to the Whitneys!

I am loving how “Classic Annapolis” Candice + Garrets’s Engagement Session turned out last Friday night! Somehow downtown was calm and quiet during our time together which gave us freedom to explore the streets of one of my favorite cities. We even had time to grab some ice cream to wrap up their session with some romantical date night vibes. Congrats again to these two!

Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet brother and sister for the second year in a row! I love being able to watch my clients' kiddos grow up before my eyes. It's crazy to see how much they grow/mature in a year! Also, the light for this session was magical, so all in all it was another heart warming summer night!

I have never met a baby happier than Ella. She smiled and giggled through this entire session and I just could not get enough. Her smushy grin and her stunning parents made my job superrrr easy! This is what you would call “Mini Session goals.”

Got to spend an evening in Annapolis with these two beauties last week! I mean come on! This session was so effortless not only because these two are stunning, but also because their sister relationship is so sweet. They were giggly and playful the entire session which just made me feel like I was hanging out with them instead of working. I just loveeee sessions like this one!

I am so thankful for this job and all of the connections I get to keep and the love I get to witness because of it. I went to high school with Chelsea and AJ and it was so sweet to reconnect and meet their new addition. Their home is GORGEOUS and their sweet little family was even more precious. Every newborn session melts my heart in a new way, and this one was definitely super special! Congrats again, lovebirds!

If this family session could be summed up in one photo, this is it. Katie and Tim's love shined so bright and their kids had a blast goofing off and picking on each other. This blended family was full of energy and it was an honor getting to capture their story. I have been having so much fun chasing these summer sunsets lately!

This family made my heart so so happy. Ryan and his son Jamie love Lauren so much and the three of them together just melted my heart! Jamie is the most polite little boy and Ryan & Lauren's love beamed from their souls. I loved getting to explore their backyard and capture these memories for them. They are genuinely some of the sweetest people ever!

What a beautiful day it was celebrating the marriage of Mr. & Mrs. Simpkins last weekend on the Chesapeake Bay! Alexandria and Ryan spent 194 days apart before their wedding. Soon, they will be moving to Japan for their first few years of marriage for Ryans next assignment with the Air Force. The similarities between their relationship and mine & Williams are endless. The instant connection, their friendship, the challenges of the military and the distance. Between that and  the way they looked at each other, my emotions were out of hand! I was seriously crying tears of joy all day for them! I just love these two and can't wait to watch them do life together in this next chapter of marriage, world travels and big adventures! Congrats again to the newlyweds!

On Tuesday, I was honored to capture the Brenner's first week with their new baby girl! This was one of those sessions that made me sigh and say, "Wow. Life is so beautiful." In-Home Sessions always seem to put me in my feels, but add a newborn baby and chocolate lab into the mix and my heart turns to totally mush. Congrats again to this beautiful family and welcome to the world baby Emerson!
