sneak peek: little ariana {maryland newborn photographer}

My friend from college recently had her baby. Little Ariana weighed in at 5lbs 12oz, and 20.5″ long. She was so tiny and looked like a little peanut (the nick name might stick since Grandma started calling her that before she was even born). Despite her tiny size, little Ariana has long long legs! She’ll grow up to be tall and skinny like her mom for sure :)

Here’s a sneak peek at the tiny ballerina in the making…

part 2: hillary & toms intimate cambridge wedding {cambridge maryland wedding photographer}

Hillary and Tom decided to do a “First Look” prior to their ceremony. I love it when couples plan a “first look”, it gives them a great opportunity to spend a little quiet time prior to the hustle and bustle of the day to just BE with each other.

Hillary has the cutest little boy named Harper. This kid is going to grow up to be a heartbreaker!

I absolutely loved the thumbprint tree guest book!

Putting their own spin on tradition, Hillary and Tom both walked down the aisle together :)

Loved how they incorporated little Harper in their ceremony :)

The couple’s friend, Christopher, did a wonderful job officiating the wedding. He knew the couple so well which made the ceremony more personable and intimate.

Hillary and Tom,  you two are absolutely stunning together…

Harper with his Dad, Jimmy.

Seriously, can the view get any better than this?

Harper and his mom share a special moment together…

Congratulations Tom & Hillary! Thank-you for letting us be apart of your big day. Wishing you much love and happiness. :*

hillary & tom : an intimate wedding in cambridge part 1 {maryland wedding photographer}

September was a month full of rain… and of course, let’s not forget the hurricane that hit and left many of us without power for days. September 24th started off with an overcast and a high chance of rain but mother nature held off in time for Hillary and Tom’s wedding.

Hillary and Tom wanted a small intimate wedding with family and close friends. The wedding took place at a friends beautiful house hidden in Cambridge, Maryland right near the water.

I loved how the couple incorporated family into their big day. Hillary’s mom made the beautiful embroidered towels for guests to take home and her engagement ring belonged to Tom’s late mother.

Due to the heavy amount of rain Maryland received there were plenty of mosquitoes who showed up to greet us. Hillary and Tom came prepared with plenty of bug spray for themselves and their guests!

Up next… Part 2: The First Look

the h family {maryland family portraits photographer}

I had a great time photographing the H Family a few weeks ago. Mr. H (aka Edward) found a new career opportunity in Pennsylvania and the family was beginning to pack up and move. Ed and his wife Kristin wanted to get in a family session before they left in order to remember their home in Maryland. They live in the cutest little neighborhood near Loyola College and have the most adorable son named Will who was full of smiles and giggles during our shoot! :D

In the middle of the neighborhood was a beautifully landscaped pond which made for a gorgeous backdrop for our photo session. We headed towards the pond just as the golden light began to surround us in it’s warm glow and we managed to capture a few photos along the way.

Seriously, how cute is Will with those gorgeous blue eyes?!

Will is just learning to walk…or wobble…  ;)

Thanks Ed, Kristin, and Will for letting me capture a few family memories in Maryland! Good luck and best wishes in PA!
