They help guests focus on what is actually happening rather than getting the best photo or video of your ceremony. This is the moment you are actually getting married after all. It is the reason everyone is […]

Is it weird to use a client’s image on my Christmas card? Asking for a friend 😜 The Moon family drove all the way from DC to meet me at one of my favorite portrait locations in Howard County, Maryland: the Shrine of St. Anthony. We wanted to give them classic, clean family portraits with a […]

I love it when families want to have their session in a location that is special to them. And what is more special than your home? The Mendelsohns started their family here. They have raised little Lia in this home. What better place to have their first photos as a family of three?! Natalie and […]

As my first pregnancy comes to an end (holy moly!!), I thought it was time to compile some of my favorite items to survive pregnancy. I say ‘survive’ because being pregnant is hard work.

Well I think it’s safe to say that Jeremy and Bri are complete naturals in front of the camera. AND they did it after driving 5 hours from Rochester, NY. These two are absolutely stunning, and more importantly, are completely in love! Jeremy and Bri met at Bri’s cousin’s wedding, and it was love at […]

It is always extra special when a fellow photographer asks me to take their family photos. That’s why I was honored when Sami asked me to take their annual portraits this year. There is always a little extra pressure too! Sami, Shawn, and their two boys could not be cuter. Yes, these two definitely have […]
