Sweater Weather | Maternity Photography; Gaithersburg, MD

So this past week has had some CRAZY weather. We were in a deep freeze last weekend, with temperatures below zero, mid week it warmed up to the 50’s, just in time for my session with Nicole and John, it got freezing again and now it’s a snow day. I was BUNDLED and they strolled up in sweaters! I don’t typically do outdoor sessions in the winter, but I know this pretty spot in Gaithersburg that looks great, even in January. It’s cutely tucked right into a busy shopping center in the middle of town, but you would never know. Nicole and John make it seem like they are the only two people in the whole world when they look at each other and I love it! PLUS, their little boy is due on my son Zac’s birthday! If it wasn’t so darn cold outside, we could have chatted for another half hour for sure, but I wanted to get them out of the cold and I needed to get back into my car (with seat warmers- holla!!) and get the feelings back into my fingers. LOL! Warning: You’re definitely gonna get some warm fuzzies from looking at their session.

I hope I get to meet that little boy one day, guys!

In My Daughter’s Eyes | Milestone Photography; Germantown, MD

Elizabeth had her first emiB session when she was just a couple of days new! Her mom had plans for a dress to be made for Elizabeth from her wedding dress and it wasn’t ready in time for her newborn session. Once it was done, we had to do a special session to honor such a beautiful gift. I had to sneak in a few shots of Mom’s wedding ring with the dress. Partly because I love diamonds, and also because those rings and that dress have met before, 7 years ago when Robin was saying I DO to Elizabeth’s dad. So beautiful. Elizabeth totally loves it too, you can tell!

I can’t believe how much bigger she looks 3 months later!

New Year, New Mix!

Hey guys!
Happy 2018! Happy January! I love a fresh start, so New Years is a favorite of mine. I have a lot of great plans for this year, how about you? Music really helps set the tone for my day and these days, I sit down to work at my computer and I need some fresh, upbeat, motivation to get my goals accomplished.

Shuffle it up while you GET those GOALS!

Side note.

Please tell me you guys remember decorating mix CDs for yourself and your friends? I basically survived my 20s on sharpie-decorated Mix CDs. I had a mix for each road trip I took, upbeat country jams for the beach, mellow music for studying, classic rock for late nights in the dorms, pop/dance hits for parties in our beach house when we lived in the outer banks, rejuvinating mixes for my drive to work when I was putting in 80 hours a week to pay for my wedding, motivational labor playlists when both of my boys were making their way out into our world, dance mixes when we have mid day dance parties- EVERYTHING. Songs and playlists shape my life. Songs take me back to special memories and feelings and that’s almost as wonderful as what images can do for our memory!
Feel free to follow along on Spotify and add some upbeat jams of your own!!
Let’s DO THIS!

Favorites of 2017!

One of my favorite blog posts of the year! A collection of some of my most cherished moments captured during the year. I snuggled eight squishy new babies under two weeks old, celebrated three first birthdays, a second birthday and a third birthday, captured the glow of eight beautiful pregnant bellies, laughed and ran around with eleven families and saw a few amazing families twice! I even had the honor of witnessing the welcoming a beautiful little lady into an amazing family and into America!! What a year!!

I love making art with the beautiful moments of growing and raising our tiny humans.

Adorable Aubree – 10 Days New | Newborn Photography; Germantown, MD

It is such an honor to capture a family as it grows. I have followed Sarah and Matt’s story since they were just a family of two! Through their maternity and newborn sessions with James, his cake smash session for his first birthday, a second birthday (and secret pregnancy announcement session!) a fall family/maternity session in October now the second baby Bryson- little miss Aubree has arrived! I had to bring in some of the same sunshine yellow we had for James’ newborn session and OF COURSE we had to incorporate that beautiful Maryland flag. Spoiler Alert: You’re gonna get baby fever from this one, guys! 😉
