Charlotte, NC Maternity Session: Meghan + Chas

Patrick and I are so fortunate to call this beautiful couple our dear friends. Chas and Pat met playing lacrosse for the University of Maryland club team our freshman year. I was introduced to Chas’ enthusiastic self once Pat and I started dating and could see immediately how close they were. Where Patrick is calm and a little quiet, Chas is energetic and loud. A proven great fit for best friends.

Maryland Summer Family Session: Kaitlyn, Blake, + Gryffin

This adorable family! What a joy to spend an evening with them last week, capturing their love for each other.

Without knowing how much time they’d have left together, she wanted to have a few images to remember him and their life on the farm where they live. To honor their little family, we decided to photograph one of their favorite activities together- their evening walk.

Summer Family Session: The Watsons

It’s summertime!! I got to kick things off with the sweetest start to the new season— a new little friend named Clara! When I arrived at the Watson’s home on Memorial Day, it was clear that Clara was ready for her moment on camera because she wouldn’t stop smiling and giggling.

Formal Portraits + Cake Smash: Elena

We started with a few more traditional posed shots, but with a baby, it’s hard to make anything tooo formal. Even on the floor, their chic outfits and Elena’s “black swan” dress, as her Dad referred to it, looked amazing!

Travel Journal: Bavaria, Germany Itinerary

Hello! Last month we had the opportunity to visit Bavaria, Germany over Patrick’s spring break with his parents. It was a wonderful trip.. I had few expectations and was lucky enough not to have to do much research because Pat and his family have been to the area a few times before. The weather was beautiful, cool and sunny, and it ended up being the kind of trip where you’re just going with the flow and having fun and then realize you did a ton!

Frederick Engagement Session: Kathleen + Mike

These two.. where to begin :) Kathleen + Mike are getting married this fall after dating for a DECADE! Yes, I know they look way too young to have been together for 10 years, but they started dating when she was a sophomore and he was a senior in high school. He was a teacher’s assistant for one of her classes and luckily the teacher never found out, but everyone else knew. As you could say, the rest is history!
