  • May + June Mini Sessions

    This little glimpse of spring is such tease! It has me itching to shoot in that gorgeous golden sunlight! My next availability for mini sessions will be in May and June. I’ve set up online schedules for each so that you can view all of the details and select the time that works best for you and your family. These are a great way to capture any important milestones or to just have a beautiful session half way through the year! I can’t wait to see how much all of your kiddos have grown!

  • Adoption Photography |Adding Sugar + Spice to Life|

    “The Gospel is not a picture of adoption, adoption is a picture of the Gospel.” – John Piper It is with a full heart I introduce you to this beautiful little gal. I’ve known her for quite some time but now that she has been officially adopted I can share her gorgeous face with the world. I wish these pictures had sound because she is one happy girl. I’ll never forget the first time we met. Her eyes stayed with me from that moment on. They were so big and so beautiful and powerful. Her story is too. Her parents decided to become foster parents a few years ago and eventually she landed in their hearts. Fast forward to December and she now has two… View Post

  • Newborn Session |Welcome, Juliana|

    This was a very special session for me. A few years back Joe and Lisa tied the knot and I had the privilege of capturing their big day. Last weekend it was such an honor to visit them at their home and capture them with their little girl. How unbelievably beautiful is she? She was a dream to capture and I can’t wait to watch this little beauty grow. Juliana has the sweetest personality just like her parents. These three are blessed beyond measure and so am I for having the opportunity to watch (and document) so many families as they grow.

  • Styled Valentines Session |Inspiration|

    Valentines Day has always been one of my favorites to celebrate with my little people. This year I teamed up with a great group of vendors to bring together an adorable yet affordable Valentines tea. My dear friend and owner of Joie Events, Tami brought her two daughters along to enjoy the day with my Ella. These three were beside themselves giddy. The styling was really fun to bring together. I love how the soft grey table photographed against the silver and pink tones. I always love shooting inside of this natural light studio. The distressed floors made it look and feel like a real dance studio and the light pouring in from the windows could not be more beautiful as the girls danced around. Carrie from… View Post

  • Styled Holiday Session |Annapolis|

    This past weekend I held my first round of styled holiday sessions and this sweet family was one of the first ones I shot. I’ve been capturing them since Jack was one and it has been so fun to watch him grow and their family grow! Not to mention…this family always delivers in the style department. How precious are their outfits?!

  • Family Session |Great Frogs Winery|

      This fall I met this family at Great Frogs Winery in Annapolis for their annual fall session. It was a gorgeous evening and we had such a fun time exploring the winery. How awesome are these vintage trucks? The kids loved them and they made the perfect cozy spot for pictures!

  • Planning Your Shoot |Styling Mom|

    It is no secret I love a good maxi. I own a lot of them and if I had to pick one thing to wear everyday that would be it. Not only does a great maxi feel amazing, it is also great at hiding all of the things motherhood got creative with on my body! I’m kicking off my fall styling guide with some of my current favorites that would look amazing on any Mom. These scream fall and with the right amount of contrasting colors from the rest of your crew + some great accessories it would look amazing on you and amazing in your fall pictures! Just click below on each dress for details. There is something for every shape and every budget!

  • Love Your Tribe |Motherhood + Party Inspiration|

      I’m super excited to finally share this fun styled party with you as featured on Kara’s Party Ideas. A special thank you to my friend, Jenny for hosting. She writes: “Recently my girlfriends and I hosted a party to celebrate the best kind of girlfriend: The Defibrillator Girlfriend. She’s the friend who freaking brings you back to life. She gets it because she sifts through the sleepless nights and the screaming kids and the demanding jobs and just navigates all the “hards” to take a moment and bring you back. On this fun evening, we wanted to bring all of these ladies together and have a defibrillator moment because, seriously, Mommying is hard. It’s intense and messy and busy and loud and sometimes we just need… View Post

  • Christen |Severn Senior|

    For two weeks in May I had the privilege of hosting two interns from Severn High School. Tess + Kam joined me as I tackled my sessions and we even participated in two huge styled shoots. It was such a blast. This is the first session that I let the girls style completely on their own. They did such an amazing job. Model, Christen is also a (now graduate) from Severn and is pursuing her music career. She just released her second album on SongCloud and needed pictures for her new release. I can’t get over how perfect this night was, how beautifully everything came together and how gorgeous Christen looked! I love all three of these talented seniors. They are such a fresh breath… View Post

  • Postpartum Style

    I’ve never been one of those people whose body gracefully eased in and out of pregnancy. It hit me like a ton of bricks in every possible way and then it felt like it took forever to bounce back. No matter how full my heart was it was still hard to find patience and grace for my body. There were little gems that I did find along the way that made me feel better and were more forgiving of the extra weight my body was trying to drop. First of all, listen to me. Spanx are your best friend. Your best friend in the entire world. Not only do they keep things nice and packaged but the support just felt so good. Those muscles are so… View Post

  • Family Session |Severna Park|

    It doesn’t get any cuter than those two cuties does it?! Seriously, they melt my heart! I’m super to lucky to call this crew our friends. They are as fun and down to earth as they look in their pictures! I love how these pictures capture their little personalities so perfectly. And those pictures of T & T on the swing?! Heart melt!!

  • Family Session |Annapolis|

    The holidays are just around the corner but for me it feels like they are already here. I’ve had so many themed sessions this week as families have their pictures done to use on their annual holiday cards. I love, love, love this session! I love the different backdrops we were able to use at Sandy Point State Park. I love how their outfits reflect each of their sweet personalities. I love the simple touch of Christmas and I love that the warm sunlight just kisses them all! A special thank you to Tori from Blush Makeup Artistry for taking care of this gorgeous Mom! Her makeup was to die for!

  • Kids + Mids |United States Naval Academy|

    Each summer I spend a lot of time brainstorming with my clients on what kind of theme we’ll have for their upcoming annual fall session. This crew will always be one of my favorites to capture! They are always down for anything and Amy has such great style. This family spends a lot of time at the Naval Academy because each year they sponsor multiple Midshipmen. These guys (and many of their friends) have become just another part of their family. It only felt natural to include them in part of the annual family session! These guys are so sweet and so much fun. Eventually they had to go back to studying so we parted ways and did some more walking around the Academy grounds.… View Post

  • Kamryn |2017 Senior Ambassador|

    Kamryn is one of my 2017 Senior Ambassadors! She is a senior at the Severn School in Severna Park. I absolutely adore this sweet girl. She is beautiful on the inside and out and such a joy to be around! I loved my time with her so much I asked her to come be a part of my team!

  • 2017 Senior Ambassadors: The Severn School Squad

    This sweet group girls from the Severn School are part of my 2017 Senior Ambassadors. I can’t take credit for the name – they branded it themselves! I couldn’t be more fond, more proud or more excited for them. They are all beauty and brains and ready to take on the world. You better believe they have part of my heart and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them! I’ll never forget my time with them and I’m so grateful to their families for sharing this special time with me! I’m so honored to be a small part in such a grand story. Stay tuned for their individual senior sessions coming up this week!

  • Styled Summer Bayside Session [Part Three]

    This is part three of a styled family session series! If you love these as much as I do you won’t want to miss part one and part two! These two have been together forever. High schools sweethearts and in the blink of an eye they have four gorgeous babies. It is so easy to forget to make time for anniversary pictures. The awesome gals at Joie made sure to make their images super romantic. I love the flowers on the beach! These girls are so good at the little details and creating a look to remember. Carly from Pins n Brushes did a great job of giving Mom that perfect beachy yet romantic bohemian hair. This family is known for their gorgeous braids and long… View Post

  • Styled Summer Bayside Session [Part Two]

    “I wanted you more than you ever will know, so I sent my love to follow wherever you go…” – Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman Today I’m sharing part two of this gorgeous, gorgeous shoot! If you missed the first part you can revisit it here. I love that we were able to capture this family together in the grasses but then switch gears and walk over to the water for a completely different look. Now, they have a gallery full of beautiful images with different backdrops. The colors just blow me away. I love how clean and crisp the bay looks against their boho colors, don’t you?!

  • Styled Summer Bayside Session [Part One]

    Today I finally have the privilege of sharing part one of this styled family session! This amazing shoot came to life with the help of an awesome crew of creative hearts.  It was my hope to capture the beauty of four generations, our beautiful Chesapeake Bay and the talent of each vendor in a gorgeous way. For many bayside families, our life revolves around the water. Just like the tides that come and go, the chapters of our life as a family change so quickly. It is so important to capture them! If you’re not familiar with a styled shoot not to worry. A styled shoot happens when a team of vendors come together to make an ordinary shoot well… extraordinary! We work with families to create a certain look. A… View Post

  • Brand Photography |Elestory|

    It was double the sweetness and double the fun as I captured these two beauties during a product shoot for Elestory this past week. I can’t even handle how precious these two sisters are! It is important to me that I am capturing great products but also products that reflect my brand. I absolutely adore these dresses. They are beautiful, soft and photograph perfectly. Joy is the owner of Elestory and a mother herself. I love meeting other moms who aren’t afraid to chase their dreams. She first designed the “Sweethearts Dress” four years ago when she stumbled upon the most amazing gold foiled hearts print on blush chiffon in Los Angeles. She knew right away what she wanted to create with this beautiful fabric. If you love this dress you’ll… View Post
