Little J

Meet Little J.  His momma is one of my dearest friends from Tennessee.  We grew up together and as only God could orchestrate we both ended up in Maryland after college.  Isn’t that crazy?  I was so excited to catch up with her and her mom as I documented this moment in time for them.  Little J was just over two weeks old at our shoot and an absolute gem:)  I couldn’t get enough of him!  I can’t wait to visit again and actually get some extended snuggles in!  Congratulations, Christian and Laura!




Meet Baby I

Baby I made his debut on the blog here warm and cozy in his momma’s belly.  Little man arrived, and I got the opportunity to meet him on his two week birthday!  He is every bit of adorable:)  Nick and Jennifer–I am so excited for you and this little guy! Enjoy this precious time because it goes by so quickly!  Thank you so much for letting me spend the afternoon with your new bundle!  Here’s your sneak peek:

The C Family

I am loving this fall weather and this family got lucky with a perfect day for a photo shoot.  Mom and Dad are high school sweethearts who now have three kids–one in middle school, one in elementary school, and one in preschool.

Thanks so much for spending part of your Saturday afternoon with me!

Gram and Poppy

Meet Gram and Poppy….

 Last week was Poppy’s annual week of Poppy Camp.  Poppy takes his older grandkids for a week each summer, filling the week to the brim with outings and activities.  This year the younger ones got to join in on some of the activities, including this photo shoot with Gram and Poppy!

Meet the grandkids…

I wonder who was more worn out at the end of the week…the kids or Poppy?!?

One lucky bunch of kids with their Gram and Poppy.

A Walk in the Park

Meet Kerri and Ryan.  We spent an evening recently at Patterson Park for their engagement shoot.  Kerri and I used to work together, and I can still remember the day a few years ago that she told me about Ryan.  She knew he was the one and I was so excited for her!  Congratulations on your engagement!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

Sweet Clementine

Last month my sweet baby girl was born surprising mommy by weighing in at just over eight pounds!  I am so excited to share with you photos from her newborn shoot.  Here she is at almost a week old!  We are so happy to have you sweet Clementine!


This family picked a beautiful park in Overlea for their portraits.  Two beautiful little girls–the oldest so comfortable in front of the camera and the youngest every bit her age exploring her surroundings.  Such a fun afternoon exploring the park!  Enjoy your preview!

Little Miss P

Little Miss P.  Such a cute little toddler.  We had perfect spring weather for this shoot with her Mommy and Daddy.  Enjoy your sneak peek!  You are such a beautiful family!

Bringing Up Boys

Meet David and Kari and their two boys.  We spent some time rock hopping at the park to get these pictures.  Amazingly, none of us ended up in the creek!  Thanks for the fun afternoon!  Enjoy your preview…..
