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!

At-Home Newborn Session: Baby Bennett

When I was three years old, a kitten with a smashed paw showed up on our back steps late one night. My parents thought it had been stepped on by one of the cows next door and immediately rushed it to a family friend veterinarian. When the kitten came home a few days later from the vet with three legs, we had all fallen in love with him. He was now our cat and I was allowed to name him! I don't remember this, but my mom says I immediately said "Luke!" after my best friend at the time :)

Maryland Spring Engagement: Kim + Ben

Maryland Family Lifestyle Session: Baby Teddy

A sharp button-down, elastic-waist linen trousers, and teeny tiny loafers completed the ensemble. I appreciate that he found that elusive line between formal and functional wear that we all often strive for...

Maryland Christmas Portrait Session | Nicole + Nick

Well, as far as I know, this was the first photo session I did under false pretenses :) Nicole told me she MUST have new photos of her and her husband Nick for their Christmas card this year. She requested we take them on the Saturday evening that we talked about getting together to celebrate my birthday. As far as I knew, we'd snap a few photos and then the four of us would have dinner and relax for the rest of the evening at my house.

Maryland Winter Portrait Session | Bridget + Kyle

When they hopped out of the car at their session, Kyle's phone went off with the ping that I'm all-too-familiar with- the ESPN ping :) The one that lets you know what's happening with your favorite teams (and a prominent app on Patrick's phone). Kyle's favorite team was playing. I laughed and asked if he was going to be able to enjoy our session while he wondered how his team was doing.
