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!!
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 […]
A little backstory before product photography came into my life… I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. 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 […]
