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!

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!

 This girlie always makes my job easy when she gets in front of the camera! This was my first elementary school grad session, and I must say it was just the stinkin' cutest! It was super fun to channel my inner school kid while helping Mya and her momma capture the memory of this special day. Congrats again, Mya! Your future is bright!

Last week, I shot one of my favorite city sessions ever! Morgan and BJ wanted their engagement photos in Fell's Point, Baltimore since that is where they had their first date & I'd say we channeled our city vibes pretty perfectly! It was special to hear their love story while exploring this adorable cobblestone-filled city. I encouraged them to sip wine and reminisce about their memories here which brought out their giddy personalities effortlessly. Congrats again to these soon to be newlyweds!

This maternity session really put me in my feels last week! I'm so thankful that my job brings so much happiness and celebration into my life. From families to friends, weddings and babies, I really have seen it all this past month. Capturing these life moments means so much to me and makes me super grateful that I'm in a place in my life where I can do photography full time. Caroline and Elan were the sweetest expecting couple and I can't wait to hear the name of their baby girl when she arrives! Congrats, love birds!

On Monday, I got to enjoy some sunshine with this rowdy bunch! These families reunited in Baltimore just for the weekend and I'm honored that they glad they came across my Facebook page. We squeezed in a Mini Session near their AirBnb to capture the memory of these families being all together in Maryland. We enjoyed a beautiful evening at Canton Waterfront Park and they got out of town before this crappy week of weather started. Happy to be a part of capturing these memories!

It was a true honor to photograph Brandon's graduation photos! I got to see The Naval Academy from a new perspective and spend time with two of the most genuine people I know. Graduation Sessions always spark a bit of nostalgia in me. My college years were some of the most special memories that I have in my life. This session felt a bit more full circle considering Brandon will be serving as a United States Marine after graduation. I could relate to where Brandon and Samantha have been and also to what is on the horizon for them as they enter the months ahead. Wishing them both the best of luck and sending all of my prayers! On another note... How adorable are they?!

 This past weekend was full of the adventurous Spring Session's that I've been waiting for! We are back to barefoot sessions in the woods and my wanderlust senses are tingling big time. I was honored to capture Walton and his brothers for his first birthday cake smash on this perfectly golden afternoon! Work just doesn't feel like work when you get to spend it encouraging kiddos to play in the grass and eat cake on a tree stump.

Okay, so I think I found my new favorite location in Maryland! Seriously though, a Mini Session was NOT enough time for Keely and I to explore last weekend! We were both in awe adventuring around Patapsco Valley State Park for her headshots and we were already talking about coming back in the future. If it wasn't for her gown being brand new, we would've been hiking into the wilderness (any takers?!) I had so much fun with this talented girl as she sang in the forrest and we got to know eachother. It was super enchanting and I love meeting other artists who are chasing their dreams. This session was a great way to kick off a busy weekend! It got me feeling inspired!
