One of the hardest things for me as a military spouse is moving place to place and having to meet new friends. As soon as we get to a new location I am reserved for a short amount of time and then once I am comfortable, I start to put myself out there. Towards the end of the 3 years or when we find out where we are going, I start to get reserved again. I hate getting so close to people and then having to leave them.
Greg and my husband, Nick, worked together here in Maryland at DMA on Fort George G. Meade and did not start talking more until this past summer. I really wish that ew would have had more opportunities to hang out with the Cerny family. They have been such amazing friends and we are truly thankful for all of the brunches and dinners that we have spent together.
Lesson learned after 2 duty stations: Meet everyone you possibly can and take every opportunity build friendships! I am so happy for everyone that we have met while being stationed here and wish that I would have put myself out there more when we were in Florida.

COVID-19 has definitely changed a lot this year in so many ways from how we style and celebrate milestones to how we socialize with friends and family. This past week Chandler asked me for some ideas of how to capture her birthday which just so happened to be the last day of her lock in […]

We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]
I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
