Macy and Dave Maternity Shoot

Wow, the Cylburn Arboretum is so pretty! It looks even better with Macy and Dave in it! I met up with them to shoot Macy’s maternity photos. She wore a beautiful floaty pink dress and Dave looked sharp in his navy suit and tie. The flowers were almost as stunning as they are, creating the perfect backdrop for the photos. Wait until you find out the name of their new baby. Appropriate to wear pink!

5 Things To Do Sunday For A Perfectly Productive Week

A teaspoon of preparation beats a pound of scrambling. Or something like that! It’s so easy for life to get out of control. Everyone is busy, the house needs cleaned, the dog needs walked and weren’t we all supposed to get eight and a half hours of sleep every night? Talk about a lot!

Life Lately | Monday Mix-Up | Maryland Photographer

How is it August already?! I've been hearing that a lot this past week and have totally been feeling the same way. This summer has flown by! I sound like a cliche, but it's true. With two kids, two businesses, and a workshop to plan, I've been going non-stop sun up to sun down.

Kode With Klossy | Karlie Kloss Summer Camp | Baltimore Photographer

I remember hearing about the first Kode with Klossy camp and I thought it was such an awesome idea. For those of you that aren't familiar, Karlie Kloss (yes, THAT Karlie- the Victoria's Secret Angel, engaged to Josh Kushner, cover model, I could go on) started KWK in 2014 as a way to introduce the world and language of computer coding to young girls.

Maryland Waterfront Engagement Session | Dan and Felicia | Maryland Wedding Photographer

I've always loved being able to take photos of clients at their home base - if one of their family members has a large property that they choose to use as their venue or, in this case, they have a beautiful waterfront home with gorgeous views of the water and a dock where we could shoot! Dan and Felicia chose to shoot their engagement session at their home in St. Mary's county. I was so excited to work with them here not only because of the amazing view, but because it felt so much more special working with them in a place where they clearly felt at home.

Photos you have to have in your wedding day shot list

Wedding days are filled with fleeting moments that you wish you could capture and keep forever.

But, which of these moments should be on your ultimate shot list for the day? I have a few opinions about that, and would love to share them with you!

Ain't Nobody Got Time For That! | Time Saving Tips | Maryland Photographer

In the ever-changing, fast-paced world we live in, it’s no wonder we often find ourselves requesting just a few more hours in a day. Truth is, no matter how much time we have, we always need just a little more to feel somewhat accomplished. We have access to so much information and convenience right at our fingertips, and sadly, most of us don’t use that power to it’s fullest potential! I may not be able to give the gift of time, but I certainly can share with you some wonderful time-saving tips that have worked wonders for me. All you need is a computer or smart-phone, and a little wifi wouldn't hurt either!

Essentials for your wedding day emergency kit | Maryland Wedding Photoghrapher

Wedding days are always full of surprises. As much as we all hope a wedding day will go off without a hitch, there's always a chance you might need a plan B to get you through a sticky situation! I always pack some essentials for weddings I cover, so I love when brides and bridesmaids bring their own emergency kits to get them through the day! It’s always a great idea to pack a wedding day emergency kit JUST in case you hit a last-minute snag on your wedding day!

Life around here has been going and going and going lately! I guess that's what happens after a winter of hibernating with a new baby. Once spring rolls around- you're in full swing! For photographers, spring means engagement sessions, family shoots, and the start of wedding season. For moms, it means end of the school year activities, assemblies, field trips, and summer prep!

Lifestyle Shoot with Kait and Joe | Baltimore Photographer

For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m a huge Joanna Gaines fan. My perfect Friday night consists of my couch and an endless supply of Fixer Upper re-runs. Recently I spent an amazing afternoon shooting a lifestyle home session with the Baileys, Baltimore's cutest couple and owners of a home that looks like it was styled by Joanna herself!

Five reasons to book an engagement session with your wedding photographer

Weddings are about more than coordinating every last detail, assembling the perfect vendor team to execute your big day, and finding just the right color scheme to pull every piece together. More than anything, your wedding should be the best representation of who you and your fiance are and should celebrate your relationship and the life you want to live together. What better way to celebrate than scheduling an engagement session?!
