Baby Owen {Locust Point, Maryland Newborn Photographer}

A few months back, I posted a maternity session on here of an adorable couple! You might remember Laura and Rich and recognize their adorable light and airy nursery (every photographers dream!) that they worked so hard to make perfect for their first born son, Owen!

Fast forward a few months and Owen finally made his appearance late April! He was worth the wait… I mean, just look at that little face! He is a perfect mix of both Laura and Rich.

As some of you know, I work part time at Mercy Medical Center doing newborn photography and when I saw This sweet family had arrived, I was SO EXCITED!!

Once they got home and settled in, I was able to do this sweet newborn session to capture this special time in their lives! Owen was a saint for his shoot.

Enjoy these sweet photos!

Christina + Fred Married {The Mansion at Valley Country Club, Towson, Maryland}

I just love Christina and Fred. I knew after their engagement session last summer that their wedding would be one for the books.

They are super laidback and quite possibly the easiest couple EVER to work with! They are both the kindest, friendliest people, and it’s no surprise that they fit so well together. They truly bring out the best in each other and I feel so honored to have been able to capture a glimpse into their love through my camera! At her OWN wedding, Christina continued to check on me and make sure I had eaten and gotten dessert, had water, etc throughout the entire day….. talk about thoughtful.

While editing these photos, I couldn’t help but smile as i went through the images and saw everyones happy faces. Their love truly filled up the whole room.

Christina and Fred got married privately at the Towson Courthouse in the morning and then celebrated at their reception with all their friends and family in the evening at the beautiful Mansion at Valley Country Club.

It poured for hours prior to their reception, and then completely stopped right before we headed outside for their first look and portraits! Such a blessing!

Thank you Christina and Fred for trusting me to capture this special day. I wish you years and years and years of happiness and wedded bliss. Enjoy every second of your honeymoon in Florida!

I loved meeting the Snyder family! They are thrilled to welcome their first born baby girl, Eliana. She was so great for her session! She made us laugh with her tongue— she truly loves it!! We got so many photos fo her sticking it out at us! Ha!

Her nursery is beautiful and so well done. it was a great place to take all of these photos! Their yellow lab, Wyatt, was amazing for the photos as well. We only bribed him with one or two (or maybe 10) pretzel sticks! We became bffs by the time I was finished!!

Thank you Snyder family for trusting me with Eliana’s photos. It was so nice to meet the four of you! Enjoy these photos :)

Our Babymoon! {Exuma, Bahamas}

For Christmas, my parents so generously gave Tommy and me a week long trip! We decided to use it for our “babymoon” aka the last big trip before baby boy comes in August!

We chose to go to Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas and it was absolutely wonderful in every way. Last June we went the all-inclusive ”route” in Riviera Maya, and although it was absolutely amazing, we knew we wanted to do something a bit more adventurous for this trip!! We also didn’t feel like we would really get the bang for our buck with me not drinking.. ha!

So, we rented an airbnb for the week, a jeep (and got “upgraded” to a Toyota yaris upon arrival LOL), and packed our bags for what turned out to be one of the best weeks ever!

Instead of writing everything right here, I captioned the photos with all of the adventures and day trips we took! Enjoy reading and looking through the photos!

Thank you, Mom and Dad for a truly incredible vacation!

Meet Baby Owen Patrick {Lifestyle Newborn Session in Rodgers Forge, Maryland}

I will never forget last March when my sister-in-law, Tricia, (also Tommy’s twin sister) and brother-in-law, Jake, invited all of us over for dinner and announced they were pregnant! It was such exciting news and I couldn’t believe I was going to be an aunt!

Fast forward a few months and they announced it was a boy! We were all so excited and couldn’t wait to meet this sweet boy. 

Owen was due to arrive on Christmas Day. December 25th came around and Tricia headed in to the hospital. Early the next morning, Owen made his arrival. I stayed up texting my MIL all night long. We were so excited we couldn’t sleep. I remember rolling over around 4 am to wake Tommy. “It’s time to go!!!!” We arrived at St. Joes around 5am and 37 minutes later heard the little chime over the intercom signaling a baby had been born. We just knew it had to be him!

When Jake finally came out to announce the news and bring us back I was in the bathroom SO sick . Sorry if that’s TMI (I had just found out I was pregnant a few weeks prior and the morning sickness was REAL). I was having major FOMO as everyone walked back to meet baby Owen! But I eventually made my way (half alive ha) and of course my eyes filled with tears, he was the cutest blonde haired, blue eyed little guy. 

I photograph babies all the time, but holding my little nephew was just so special. He really is so special and our family will never ever be the same!

Tricia and Jake are doing such an amazing job at being parents. It’s so fun to see them as a mom and dad. They have transitioned into their roles so effortlessly!

I love you guys and I’m so thankful I could take these photos for you!

Announcing Baby Webster!

Tommy and I have very exciting news to share!!! We are expecting our first child this August! We are feeling so blessed and so excited to welcome this little love to our clan.

We found out in early December and it was SO hard keeping the secret with all the holidays!! Somehow we made it through Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New years Eve and all the holiday parties in between. I got really good at making mocktails or accepting wine and having Tommy drink while no one was watching.. ha!

We shared with both our parents asap. We told my parents with a Christmas ornament. They were 100% speechless and so so so surprised! We shared with Tommy’s parents on his dad’s birthday a few days before Christmas! My father-in-law always gives us scratch off tickets, so I have started giving him them on special occasions, too! I found these awesome scratch offs that say “We’re having a baby!!” underneath. Both my FIL and MIL were also in shock and so very excited!

THANK YOU so much to my friend Marie (from Marie Medina Photography) for taking these photos for us. She just launched a new website and needed some photos so after capturing some for her, she captured these for us! She’s amazing and perfectly captured exactly what I had in mind!

We can’t wait to meet Baby Webster this summer!
