1a few short weeks before I photographed this, I visited my cousin, caitlin, and her newborn son, kie, at the hospital. we had a quick session to document this special time, but I knew that I would return to include big brother, gray… and the family pup, diesel (long but funny story there… :) ) when they were still at the hospital, gray wasn’t too sure what to make of this new person who everyone was coming to visit. but now at home, it was so lovely to see that he’s starting to figure out that he’s got a brother, a sidekick, a best friend… for life. I love all of you so much and am so happy and grateful to share this time with you xoxo

1fells point is one of my favorite places and holds some of my fondest memories. when I lived in baltimore, many a day were spent by the harbor, strolling the cobblestone streets. so when laura suggested this location for her and kelly’s engagement session, I quickly said yes. then.. when she asked if their dog, jeb, could come too ~ well, I think you already know my response to that one. we had a beautiful spring day, and the city was full of tourists and locals who were out and about to enjoy the gorgeous weather. I met laura and kelly at the pier who had laura’s mom and sister along to help out with their pup. we started with him and he was a rockstar! the distractions of everything going on around him didn’t deter him in the least and he was such a good boy. we then took the opportunity to walk around the neighborhoods, stopping here and there to shoot. laura and kelly are such a cool couple and were more than happy to play along with anything that I suggested. I am looking so forward to working with them again once their wedding day arrives ~ thank you so much for a lovely day and such a fun session!

001the first time that I met tiffanie and jason, it was for their engagement session on chincoteague. as I was walking to our agreed meeting spot, I noticed a couple sitting on a bench, snuggled up a little bit, and laughing easily and loudly enough for me to hear them. in my head, I silently hoped that this was my couple and was so happy that when they looked up and waved, that it was. instead of the introductory shaking of hands, I was welcomed with big hugs and had the most wonderful day with them! since then, we have steadily stayed in touch and as their wedding day got closer, so did my excitement to work with them again. this time, however, I would have the pleasure of meeting their children – both of whom are such wonderful kids and were as thrilled as their parents to finally become a family. these are the weddings that I adore, intimate and carefully planned to make the focus of the day to be exactly what it is.. two people starting a life together and everything that it means. in commitment, in family, in partnership, in friendship, and in love. I am so grateful to have met you and to have two new wonderful friends in my life. I wish you and your family all of the love and laughter that the world has to offer! xoxo
