In the first weeks of fall I met up with this beautiful family to photograph them in a gorgeous Bethesda Maryland garden and park, and it was all so lovely. Their twin girls are just awesome, and kept me laughing and chatting all morning. Their family is full of love and kindness, and each of them had such a great time giving hugs and tickles and squeezes. They brought along their brand new puppy who may have been the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, and I loved getting to photograph him too with everyone. I loved their fun Lilly dresses, their adventurous and joyful personalities, and photographing them was absolutely a total joy.

I loved photographing this beautiful family and am excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

Well that was an incredible first! I flew recently to Kauai to stand up with my best friend for her ocean side wedding to the love of her life, and was honored to photograph them the day after in a fun sunset beach session celebrating their new life together. Their wedding day was sunny and warm with gorgeous colors in the sky and the sea, and the celebration was magical. In the middle of the ocean Kauai sits in the Pacific and is a true gem of a place – with lush green mountains jutting out of the bright aqua water, and tropical flowers and trees are everywhere. It’s called the island of love, and for good reason. Dolphins jump in the waves, sea turtles swim around everywhere, and the rainbows are like out of a dream. What a gorgeous spot to celebrate a new life together, and a beautiful place to photograph love like this. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this amazing couple and cheers to a new life together as a married couple!!

I’ve had a few families over the years where I’ve been photographing them since ALL their babies were in their bellies, and this is one! Nothing is more special to me than growing with these amazing families, watching their families bloom into 3, 4 and 5 people. This incredible family has been with me for so many sessions and it was such a joy to photograph them this time for their new baby girl who will be arriving any day! Her two big brothers are going to be such a great influence for her and will protect her and shower her in love I’m sure!

This awesome baby plan family met up with me on a beautiful summer morning in Annapolis to photograph their beautiful seaside maternity session. For their maternity session they did pops of pink in celebration of their upcoming baby sister which was adorable. This mama has always been beautiful but this time I noticed she truly glowed with anticipation and happiness. This amazing family was so loving and happy together, and we had such a great time laughing and playing around together. I cant wait to photograph their baby girl in a few weeks when she’s born, and watch their family turn into a family of 5!

Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful family!

So a first for me – my own sister had her very first baby!! A beautiful and amazing newborn baby boy has stolen my heart and made me an aunt for the first time on my side of the family. I flew to Florida to meet him and photograph his newborn photosession, and it was a total dream come true. Packing for his session was a bit crazy, since I had to be super selective in what items I chose, and obviously most of my studio gear and props couldnt fit on a plane. I rummaged around their house to find a few cool baskets and props, and even used a few throws and blankets that were hanging around to make their images super unique and personal to them.

Seeing my sister as a new mom and my brother in law as a dad to a new baby has been so cool and amazing. They make an awesome team and my sweet nephew is just as precious and as sweet as can be. I loved photographing them for his newborn session and cant wait to see him grow! Enjoy these sneak peeks of my amazing nephew!!

There’s something magical about the ocean for me. No matter my worries or fears, when I’m listening to the waves crash with the sun on my face, there is just something so calming and reassuring about being by the sea. There is this gorgeous pocket of beach in South Florida I love so much, right in Jupiter, FL where the water turns this amazing shade of aqua and blue, the sand is buttery warm and even a few spots have some cool rock formations jutting into the ocean. There is a gorgeous line of sea grape foliage against the back side of the beach, creating vivid tropical green hues, and enormous sea turtles swim from all over the world to lay their eggs on the sand here. It’s truly magical, and a few times a year I do photosessions for families on these beaches to combine my love of the ocean with my photography love. Definitely contact me for more info or to get on my waitlist for these Salt and Sea sessions!

This particular week was interesting because it happened to be the week of hurricane Irma heading to Florida, which was both scary and intimidating all at once. It was so strange to be on the beach in gorgeous weather, knowing that in a few days a hurricane rarely seen would run right over us. Thankfully this area didnt sustain too much damage, and now a month later most of the destruction has been fixed. It’s been a tough year for natural disasters here in America and abroad in our world – making me that much more thankful that I have these beautiful memories captured for me to preserve and look back on years and years to come. My beautiful children love having their photos taken (thankfully) and were awesome sports as we did a sunset and sunrise shoot back to back on this beautiful beach. Enjoy these sneak peeks of my amazing kiddos, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
