001lindsey and adam are the kind of couple that you just want to be around. from our first meeting in annapolis, it was clear that not only were they so amazing together, but that their energy invited everyone who met them in. when I got to baltimore and met lindsey in her suite, everyone was calm… but excited. the weather was perfect and from her window, lindsey could see the ceremony being set up. it was cute to catch her glancing outside here and there – she would smile, knowing that very soon, she would walk down the aisle to her love. as I met adam outside in the courtyard, I got a big hug and asked, ‘when do I get to see her?’, and we prepared for their first look. every time I shoot this, the first look is a little different. ~ sometimes it’s very emotional, others it’s playful, and almost always there is the shared excitement and anticipation of what’s to come. with lindsey and adam, it was all three… laughter, a few tears, and talking about their day so far. the ketubah signing was next which I always love – I love what it says, I love that it includes family and special friends, and I love that their commitment is really already made before the actual ceremony. as the festivities continued, lindsey and adam were always by each other’s sides – greeting friends, taking a few moments alone, and when they hit the dance floor, look out! this whole bunch, led by the bride and groom, had the reception party on from the first song until the very end. I had such a wonderful time with all of you and wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!

1the first time I met clara and ray, it was during their engagement session. I was instantly smitten with them.. they are so much fun and have an energy that just invites you in ~ it’s pretty magical. that day was pretty cool for another reason – I fell pretty hard for a puppy named hugo :) ┬ánow, 2 years later, they are expecting their first child and I am so excited for them! obviously, hugo had to be a part of this session and I was so happy to see all of them. we spent a lovely afternoon in and around snow hill and had the opportunity to catch up. this baby is going to make an appearance soon and I can’t wait to capture some of it’s first moments with mom and dad… and of course, his furry big brother xoxo

1wren is the daughter of two of my dear friends and I have had the pleasure of knowing this little girl since the day after she was born. her mom, who is also a photographer, contacted me about her upcoming birthday and asked if we could get together for a bit in berlin to document this big milestone… wren, balloons, and ice cream? I am so in! these photographs really speak for themselves… wren is an inquisitive, happy, and beautiful child and I am so grateful to watch this family grow together. happy birthday little miss! loads of love surrounds you xoxo

1from the moment that I met kristin and rob, I loved them. even though, technically, it wasn’t the first time that I really met kristin…. (you can read all about that in their wedding blogpost) anyhoo… they are such a special couple. they are kind, and funny, and obviously head over heels for each other. I tried to count, and I think with all of the sessions combined, I have worked with one or both of them 7 times.. and each time is cooler than the last because I get to learn just a little more about them. this time, our conversations revolved around their impending parenthood and they are both so excited to become a family. we spent the afternoon at quiet waters park and managed to get our full session photographed before a major storm hit and we couldn’t help but feel lucky for having the opportunity to share this time before they are a party of three. I am looking so forward to meeting your baby and your next blogpost…. the gibbons family! xoxox

to document the journey of a couple is one of my greatest joys as a photographer. from engagement to wedding day and then getting that call that they are expecting a child and becoming a family ~ these are such life changing moments and I feel honored and humbled to capture them… and such is the story of the esworthy family. I met erika and josh years ago when I photographed their beautiful wedding day and not too long after that did their daughter, hayden, arrive. my first session with her was almost 8 years ago, and in the years since I have photographed them 5 times (click here, here, here, and here if you’d like to see our past sessions). every time I am with them, I am completely smitten with this family. erika and josh are still as as crazy as ever about each other, and hayden is growing into such a lovely young lady in front of my camera. she is spunky, thoughtful, funny, and so very sweet. as always, I look forward to our next adventure together! xoxo
