Andrew & Grace - 10 Years!

Cheers to 10 years! Andrew and Grace met in March 2008- set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. It was only a few weeks before they were hanging out nearly every day and knew that they had found ‘the one.’ On August 1, 2008 Andrew proposed to Grace while they enjoyed a romantic moment on the beach. Grace said, “and we said ‘I do, I will, I choose you forever.” She added, “We’re celebrating 10 years with these beautiful photos and a brand new HVAC system in our home. Who says romance has to die?!” That made us laugh and is definitely so true!

We convinced Grace to do a session for this special occasion- it is perfect for anyone who looks back on their wedding photos with less than excitement, or for anyone who just wants some updated pictures. Grace chose a Mr. Pretty Skirt in a gorgeous blue and paired it with a lace long sleeve top. The location? One of her friend’s back yards during a snowstorm. Kelly posted a picture of her trees that morning on Instagram and captioned it “winter wonderland.” Indeed, it was! Thank you for letting us use your space!

Grace and Andrew have built a beautiful life together these past 10 years and welcomed 3 awesome children along the way! We know you will have an amazing anniversary this year, and many many more to come!

Baby - K - Lifestyle Session

We say it time and time again, there is nothing better than being able to watch “our” families grow over the years! About 18 months ago, we photographed one of the sweetest little peanuts for her newborn and 3 month photos, and just recently we had the chance to photograph her new baby brother. He reminded us a ton of big sissy, both with gorgeous newborn skin and adorably cute looks that will melt your heart! His new nickname from us will be Mr. wide eyes because he decided he needed no naps or sleep during his moment to shine. Even though he was awake for the entire session, with a little patience we managed to get everything we needed! Check out a few of our favorite’s from this little guys newborn lifestyle photography session below!

Traci's Maternity Session

Our first maternity session of 2019 was nothing short of amazing! Julio and Traci made the trip to Maryland just for a short visit and their maternity session, how awesome is that? Traci is Kerry’s childhood friend- all the way back to the 3rd grade! Traci and Kerry lived down the street from each other in New Jersey, where they were inseparable until they both went to colleges out of state (MD and PA). And although life’s circumstances and distance hasn’t allowed for many chances to see each other, they didn’t skip a beat last weekend!

We chose Piney Run Park in Sykesville for the session location. It was a very cold January day but we did okay with the help of some robes and blankets! Traci’s long sleeve dress by Sew Trendy was a really beautiful winter choice. We also did Traci’s hair that afternoon and made her flower crown to go with the color of her dress. Everything came together so nicely! Julio & Traci, we are so happy for you both and cannot wait to see photos of that sweet baby girl! We hope you can always look back on these photos and remember this special time just before you became parents.

-G- Lifestyle Session

We loved getting to meet the newest addition to this adorable family! Big sister Kennedy was such a helper in this session. She held my hand and took me to every room to show me where each member in her family slept, she helped me get a stool, and she showed me everything she got for Christmas. I think we became quick best friends and she secretly thought I was there to play with her :) She loves to hold, snuggle, and love on her new baby sister! We got the honor of photographing Kenned only a few days old and are so happy we got invited into their home for a lifestyle session for beautiful Ella! They moved into this home not too long ago and it couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. Each room was as gorgeous and as well put together as the next and we hope they cherish this special time that we got to capture! We look forward to watching Ella and Kennedy grow and always capture all of these fleeting moments for this sweet Mom and Dad!

Kerry's Maternity Session - Catonsville, MD

I just couldn't wait to post Kerry's blog! I should name this blog three gorgeous girls! To say Kerry is glowing is an understatement. She is Radiant! Kerry is always working with me behind the camera and to be able to capture her with her girls was such a special moment. We take photos of each other with our families here and there but very rarely do we do an entire session on one another.  I loved the pressure of wanting her to love all of the photos! The weather was perfect, and the lighting was impeccable so clearly this session would go without flaws, right? Before taking one photo we stepped into the tall grass and Kerry got stung by a bee! Of course! However after that it was a super fun time. Layla and Jordan are two of the cutest little girls you will ever meet. Layla has such a sweet and genuine nature to her that shows in the photos. Jordan is also very sweet with just a little extra sass on top! I couldn't love this family more and cannot wait to capture the birth of their new brother/son! I cannot wait to kiss an snuggle him. He is going to be one spoiled and very loved baby boy!

Salem's 1st Birthday Cake Smash - Pasadena, MD

I know we have said this before, but it really is such a special thing when we get to take a client's maternity photos, newborn photos, and then watch the baby turn 1 for a birthday session!  Molly went with a mermaid theme for both her newborn session and cake smash.  Of course we had to find a location with some water for this cute little fishy, and John Downs Park in Pasadena had everything we were looking for.  

Salem absolutely loved her mama's vegan cake and dug right in!  She even put her whole face to it towards the end.  We had a beautiful night at the end of June, and Salem held up well even though it was clearly her bedtime!  Thank you to Molly, Jacob, and their lovely helper Claudia (Molly's mom) for another memorable session! 

Baby James - Lifestyle Newborn Session

We have been so excited to share this sweet lifestyle session on our blog!  Baby James and big sister Emilia stole our hearts!  Newborn sessions always have their challenges- but then add in a 2 year old and things are usually crazy!  But Emilia was just adorable and very cooperative! She sang us songs, read us books and loved showing us where their rooms were. This is what we love about lifestyle! We get to capture sweet families in their own comfortable environment and see the not so shy side of the siblings :) We know James is lucky to have a big sissy like Emilia! Congrats to the R family on your newest little bundle of joy!
