The Cool Kids on the Block | Eastern Shore MD Family Photographer

I got to see these guys exactly one year, almost to the minute, after I saw them last year. How cool is that? :)

(I showed up to our session in exactly the same outfit too, which is far less cool 🤣😬 - thanks Timehop for reminding me!) 

It was great to see these kiddos. They're getting so big! Still just as adorable though <3

Meet My New Besties | Bethany Beach MD Family Photographer

I fall in love a little bit with all of my clients. I can't help it - you're choosing me to dig into your love story and find the most beautiful, the most precious, the best connections, the biggest smiles... and when I do, well I'm smitten!

And then sometimes I meet a family and I think "hey, why aren't we all best friends already?" And this family? This was one of those. I didn't leave this session with a bunch of new clients, I left this session with a big old set of new BFFs. 

A Trip to the Beach | Kent Island MD Family Photographer

My first shoot back from maternity leave.... I was nervous! Did I need to be? NO! Not at all! I couldn't have asked for a better set of families to welcome me back :)

We live in one of the most beautiful places, and I love having such gorgeous locations right at my fingertips. Such a lovely day at the beach, with a lovely bunch of families. 

I loved seeing so many favorites, so many littles who had gotten so big!, and making so many new friends :)

Talent | Stevensville MD Senior Photographer

At the very last minute in fall of 2013 I enrolled my then two year old daughter in a beginning dance class at a local studio. I had no idea I had managed to choose the BEST dance studio ever, but I did. And while I can tell you lots about the world of 2, 3, and 4 year old dance, having not been a dancer myself, the rest of it has always been a bit of a mystery to me. I sit in awe at the showcases at marvel at the talent of both the students and the teachers at this amazing studio. 

So, when they asked me to do a shoot with their student teachers (proteges), I jumped on it. I love everything this studio represents, and I was excited to see these young people in action. 

And wow. 

WOW. 

Like most parents of young school agers, I'm a little nervous around teenagers. Here is an entirely new breed of kid that I know nothing about. But these young men and women are exactly the kind of teenagers I hope my kids grow up to be - polite, funny, engaged, kind, and so incredibly strong and graceful. They are athletes through and through. I was blown away.

The J. Family | Elkton MD Family Photographer

I'm going to tell you a secret. Are you ready? I have favorites. It's true. When I see families over and over and I get to see kids grow up through my lens, I can't help but fall in love with them over and over again. I'm pretty sure that qualifies someone as a favorite :) So, these guys? You know, them? Remember? Definitely some all-time favorites <3 Can you believe how big those kids are getting? So big! I love how expressive they are too, especially big sis. And she's as smart as a whip, with a killer sense of humor. I can't wait to see what kind of personality little bro will have :)
