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. Kaitlyn reached out to me hoping to book a session when they received hard news about their pup, Gryffin. 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. Apparently, Clara’s mom Mary had been talking about the session with her and I really think she understood because she was a perfect model!

Formal Portraits + Cake Smash: Elena

This was such a fun session! Baby Elena and her parents are such a joyful, silly family. They decided to take things up a notch and have a more formal family portrait session. 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!

Studio Family Session | The Doughertys

Rose is such a cutie patootie! She and her parents joined me for a modern studio session on Sunday. Baby and toddler sessions are always fun because you never know what to expect. Shyness, melt downs, giggles, tears, blowing bubbles, yanking your head band off fifty times, dancing, a lot of snacks, etc. is all part of it and is why I love these sessions.

One Year Old | Adeline

Sweet Adeline! This little lady is one year old now! Her sweet family came to my home studio to celebrate the occasion last weekend. We laughed, danced, sang, and ate gummies (a little bribing is ok!) to create some adorable family photos and individuals of Addy. Her big brother Ethan was a great example by posing for each shot!

Winter Extended Family Session

I love getting to meet new clients because often we immediately connect as more than client and photographer, but as sisters, daughters, wives, and humans. Allyson (above left) reached out to me last fall because she had something really special in mind. As a gift to her parents for their 65th birthdays, she wanted to coordinate a photo session for their entire crew while on vacation.

Pink Floral Cake Smash: Sofia

Sweet baby Sofia. This little lady turned one recently and her adorable family came over to celebrate with a cake smash session. Sofia’s mom, Maria, wanted to keep things clean and simple for the theme. This is why I always allow families to bring their own props and cake! There are so many styles and I want the images to match your vision, not a set of props I could pick out and provide.
