Powis Maternity Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Maternity Photographer}

"Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen."            ~E. B. White

There is nothing sweeter than capturing a couple at this incredible time of their marriage.  I was truly honored to shoot Palmer and Hannah Powis' maternity session a couple of weekends ago.  Their anticipation, wonderment and love for one another and this child was evident during this session.  They are high school sweethearts that met and got married in Utah.  They moved here to Baltimore for Palmer to play baseball.  Their baby girl has no idea how blessed she will be with these two as parents.  Palmer and Hannah I only spent a little over an hour with you but it was such a gift.  Thank you for trusting me to capture you as you become a family of 3.

Youngblood Family Session | Baltimore, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

I look forward to capturing this family each year.  I'll never forget the first time I met Jennifer at the pool with her two young girls.  We were both in the baby pool with our kids and she mentioned that she would often see me come into the pool with our four boys and thought I had it all together.  I laughed and reassured her that was not the case!  We have gotten to know one another better over the years as our older kids have been in school together.   

I love that the Youngblood's value these family images and put a lot of preparation into our session.  Jen and I sat poolside over the summer and brainstormed locations, outfits and ways to make the session fun for the girls.  Jason even stopped me one day in the gym to discuss locations.  We have been working together for the past few years so they know what to expect and trust that I will capture timeless images of their family.

LaGreca Family Session | Towson, Maryland {Baltimore Family Photographer}

The LaGreca family is so special to me for so many reasons.  They have been a part of our small group for over 10 years so we have experienced a lot of life together.  We have rejoiced, mourned, encouraged and spurred one another on over the years.  They also were the first family I captured with my camera (other than my own).  Jen believed in me way back when this business was a dream that I had yet to fully form in my mind.  Back when I knew little about the golden hour, prime lenses and f stops.  I love photographing them each year not only because I hope to capture lasting memories for them but it is also a visual reminder to me of how far I have come as a photographer.  These past few years I have worked hard to hone this craft and build my business into something that will best represent my "why" for taking pictures.  I want to help women capture those glimpses of what motherhood and marriage feel like...because if we're honest it isn't always pretty but deep down we know we love our husband and kids with a  passion beyond description and we all long to see glimpses of that in our photos.  

LaGreca's thank you so much for believing in me, and encouraging me.  I will be forever grateful!

Authentic interactions and genuine expressions made this a fun fall session for everyone involved.  This past spring I donated a mini session to my son's school auction and Jenn, the Education Director at the school won the session.  Chris, Jenn, Landon and Parks thank you for coming to play...you all were a blast to photograph!

Abram's Milestone Session | Western Maryland {Maryland Milestone Photographer}

Abram turns One-0853.jpg

Someone is just a little excited to celebrate his First Birthday this weekend!  Milestone Sessions are a great way to capture your little one at a specific stage.  We all know they change so quickly in those first few years.  I like to allow the child time to explore and play for these sessions.  This ensures that the images we capture are true to who they are at that specific slice in time.  Abram was fun and very expressive as we played together.  His mother Kasandra, did a phenomenal job of choosing their outfits.  They brought out the rich warm tones of fall.   She also brought this chair along that she was photographed in as a young child.  This session was a gift from his grandparents.  Enjoy this collection of images from my session with Abram and Kasandra.
