Being stationed here in Maryland has made me realize what I love photographing the most. I love photographing bloggers and couples! The best session, especially an engagement session, is when I photograph bloggers and their spouses!
I met Melissa on Instagram a couple years ago through our mutual friend Anna! We had talked through Insta a few times and finally got together to photograph a beautiful engagement session for her and her fiancé, Matt! I posted a photo on Instagram about wanting to photograph a session with a bike like this and she mentioned that she had one!! I began to get super excited!! Before their session, I had a venue walkthrough with a wedding couple down in Rockville. While I was on my way to Kinder Farm for Matt + Melissa’s session, I thought that it would be so pretty to have some flowers in the basket! I made a pit stop at Trader Joe’s and was then back on my way.
By the time I got to Kinder Farm, I completely forgot about how hot it was…… It is like hitting a wall. Instant sweat and feeling gross. We did our best to shoot as fast as possible with Zara and made sure to have a lot of water around for her. About 15 minutes into the shoot we could that she wasn’t having it so Melissa called her parents to come pick her up. We then began shooting our pretty little hearts out until the sun was down!
Below are just a “select” few of my favorite images!!
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 […]
I am a new photographer to the KMC area and I am so happy that Josh + Caryn chose me to capture their maternity session at Burg Lichtenberg! I just got back from visiting family and friends in Minnesota and Maryland on Friday and got to jump right back into photography yesterday with these two. […]
I had the honor of being the photographer for a family friends wedding at the beautiful 7 Vines Vineyard that is located in Dellwood, Minnesota. I could start off by telling you about the wedding day but I am actually gonna give a little back story. I met Ashley and her family back when […]
