Chrissy & Mitch were such troopers on this cold winter day for their wonderful maternity session! Thankfully, the sun was out and it wasn't so bad!
Chrissy and Mitch are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first baby - a little girl! Gotta love all the pink that comes along with a little girl! I had such a great time getting to know them, and we sure did have a pretty location to use for this session <3
I had such a blast during this snowy engagement session in Frederick, Maryland! Chelle and Wes have the cutest personalities, and their love was just radiating so brightly during their session!
Chelle and Wes live in an awesome house that has the most adorable little barn out back, so we wanted to include that for their photos! I love the way they turned out - the pop of red of the barn really added to the romance of the peaceful snow that was falling so quickly!
Ooh, and I can't forget about their "meeting story." It was the cutest thing I've ever heard - like, straight from a movie cute! Wes and Chelle were both in the Yankee Candle store, when Chelle saw Wes make a yuck face in response to smelling one of the candles, Chelle saw and thought it was cute, and as they say, the rest was history! How adorable <3 <3 <3
And to make this couple even more awesome, they've adopted two little fur babies - Stanley and Alfie - so, of course, we had to include them too :)
Enjoy this last little bit of winter - hopefully :)
I can't wait for you to see these adorable pictures today - these three just make the cutest little family ever! This Frederick, Maryland engagement session took place between a few locations in Middletown, Maryland, just a few minutes from Frederick. We went from one location to the next, and each one got prettier and prettier! I couldn't have asked for a better way to end the session... the sky was absolutely breathtaking <3
I first met Dani & Ricky in Sit Means Sit dog training classes - which are awesome, BTW :) They have an awesome German Shepherd named Gunner, who is one of the smartest and well-behaved dogs I know :) Dani and Ricky love spending time with their pup and even plan to have him walk down the aisle on their big day - I mean, does it get any cuter?!
There is no better way to end a session full of so much cuteness and love than the most gorgeous sunset. I just adore sunsets, beautiful skies, and silhouettes :)

I absolutely loved this beautiful maternity session with Julia. She had such a bubbly, friendly, confident personality, and that instantly made our session fun! Seeing the way she lit up as she talked about her future life as a mom was so inspiring.
As I look back, I think this session was a turning point for me in my career and my dreams as a photographer. Photography has taught me so much about myself, and this session in particular - it made me realize how much of a girly-girl I am, how I want to embrace beauty, life, love, how it's okay to embrace being sexy and confident, and to love who you are. When I first started my photography journey two years ago, I had no idea the path it would take me on, but I have to say, I couldn't be happier.
It taught me who I want to be as a photographer - someone who not only embraces those things, but lives them. Be confident in my own skin, be the girly-girl I am, and bring those things into my photos, my sessions, and my life.
