Double Snuggle | Fall Family Photography; Germantown, MD

I am SO glad I decided to book outdoor sessions into November this year. September was basically hot, October was cool and November has been perfectly fall with brilliant colored leaves and just enough cool breeze to make it worth bundling up. This has to be my most colorful session so far this fall and I love it! I almost didn’t have any space left in my calendar. I actually didn’t book this day on purpose, since we were having Jesse’s 6th birthday party earlier that afternoon,  but I decided to book these guys anyway and I’m SO glad I did! Ryan and Jackson were some seriously fun twins. They are that age where new people are always a little iffy, but I always have new friends at the end of my sessions, no matter what age I meet! We ran around the park and I found out they love pushing buttons, so near the end of our session, I let them help me take some pictures. The one of just their dad, Tommy at the end was all Ryan! I just held the camera! LOL-  he’s a natural! You’ve got to be some pretty amazing people to be raising twins and Mallori and Tommy are definitely amazing twin wranglers. Be prepared for double the cuteness coming at you!!


This is the picture Ryan helped me take!! He’s a natural!


I can’t wait to see you guys again!

Autumn Snuggles | Family Photography; Germantown, MD

This was probably my coldest session to date – the wind didn’t help!- but the sun was blazing as it set and the leaves were the most perfect, rich fall colors. This amazing family still had a good time! We found out that Adalyn’s birthday is the same as my son Jesse’s (TODAY!) so I worked my little tush off to get their gallery and this blog post ready in time to deliver it for her! We cut our session a little short because cutie pie Adalyn wasn’t feeling that blustery wind chill factor, so she came in to the studio for a few minutes a couple days later to do a little cake eating and birthday celebrating! Nothing like being wrapped in a blanket with your favorite people to warm up your insides and your outsides.


Happy First Birthday Addy!

Joseph’s LumberSmash! | Cake Smash Photography; Germantown, MD

I was so happy to hear from Jessica again! We got together to celebrate Anthony’s birthday with a cake smash two years ago and now she’s back for little brother Joseph’s first birthday! I couldn’t believe how big Anthony got since I saw him, but he was just as sweet as ever. I love to set my big siblings up with some toys and fun stuff to do while the little ones get ready for our session. I couldn’t help but sneak Anthony in for a few shots too! I was so excited about this one because it was Lumberjack themed! A new one for me, but I was SO here for it and this whole set up did NOT disappoint. I was joking that by the end, Joseph’s icing face look like a little beard! LOL. I had such a blast with those guys and their parents. I can’t wait to see them again! Now, go enjoy some cuteness!

Big brother snuck in for a few samples! LOL!

The infamous before and after shot I always get!

Happy Birthday Joseph!! Thanks for celebrating with me!

Gonna Make This Place Our Home | Family Photography; Clarksburg, MD

Ok, so this session isn’t my typical sunset in a field session, but I’m SO glad I jumped out of my typical workflow to capture this family’s awesome vision. Noel messaged me about a family session, but with a special idea in mind! They are having their first home built and it was currently in the framing stage. What a great way to capture this exciting time than to have a family session IN their unfinished house! Think of how cool it will be to see these pictures after the house is finished and they’re all moved in, or after Ava packs up to go to college and has spent her entire childhood growing up within those walls that we played between one warm October night so long ago. Every session I finish, I always step back and look through the entire gallery and think of all of those sweet moments families share that they get to keep forever and it makes me feel so fulfilled. I really adore this session and what special moments I got to capture. Not to MENTION how much FUN I had chatting with Supergirl, Ava. Shooting ice powers like Elsa, singing Moana songs and joking with Mom and Dad. We all bonded so much during our short session. I had such a great time!

Dance break!


Looking out her future bedroom window!

I can’t wait to see this family again!

Waiting For Baby Sister! | Maternity Family Photography; Germantown, MD

This session was just about a year in the making. I open up my family sessions for booking for the next year in November, so when Sarah was scheduling this session, she was hoping it would turn out just how it happened: their family session turned into a maternity session! I LOVE when I get to find out about new babies and growing families sometimes before anyone else. It is such a gift and a privilege to be trusted by so many clients that I consider friends after sharing so much of our lives together. My sessions every weekend have had the most perfect weather ever. James was having a fun time running around, which gave us some time to capture some absolutely STUNNING shots of just Sarah and Matt, which I love.  I of course had to capture a few of James with just him and mom and dad separately because these are his last few weeks of having the spotlight to himself! I can hardly remember what life was like before my family became four, seems like forever and a lifetime away from the crazy two boy-life I know today. I’m so happy they have these to remember this fall fun they had while they waited for baby sister!









I can’t wait to meet her in a few short weeks!
