Maternity : Carrie & Bob

I met Carrie a few years ago through Carrie's Sister Amanda and my friend Amy, who thought it was about time Carrie and I should meet. We were sort of set up, on a blind friend date so to speak. Well, friend sparks were flying, and we've been friends ever since. We don't get to hang out as much as we'd like, but when we do, it's all laughter and awesomeness. I was so ecstatic to find out that Carrie and Bob (Philly folks might recognize him from CBS3) were having a baby and they wanted me to photograph a maternity session. So we braved the wet weather, with film & digital in hand and meandered through the green to capture the sweetness of pregnancy.

Haute Boudoir : Lady K

I couldn't WAIT to share these ridiculously sexy images from Lady K's Boudoir shoot a few months back. We'd emailed back and forth about the overall look and feel, and it took us a while to find the perfect location, but once we did, everything fell into place. Between the champagne, lingerie and laughter, we managed to pull off some pretty sexy photos to share with Lady K's husband for their anniversary.

Real Wedding : Heather & Ryan

Heather & Ryan were married along the Eastern Shore of Maryland this past July on a beautiful Summer Day. I LOVE Eastern Shore weddings, there's something about the Chesapeake that is so relaxing, beautiful and classic, you just can't go wrong. Ryan and Heather were so much fun to spend the day with, and their wedding was definitely all about good friends, good food and lots of laughter.

Engagements : Laura & Tom

Meet Laura and Tom. Laura is an insanely talented, yet humble artist who left her sick job as a painter with Jeff Koons ( I know!) to move to Cambridge, England to be with Tom, a very tall, laid back Brit. Creative, Kind and Incredible sweet and patient (it was 110 during their engagement shoot), I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in Baltimore this October.

Home : Black & White

We're redoing some things around the house, and I honestly think I could live in a totally black and white house. Could be a cottage, could be a grand townhouse, glorious estate, industrial loft or quaint little long as it's chic and comfortable, I'm there.

Haute Boudoir : R

You hear the rumblings from women, everything from "I don't look like the women on your site" to "I'm too (insert various self judgments)" but what is so great about boudoir is that it truly is for every and any woman who wants to feel beautiful. Period. Beauty, the inner beauty that radiates and makes a picture worth a double take, knows no age, size, color or difference. The beauty within every woman that is unique and as individual as a fingerprint is something worth capturing and remembering for years to come. I love that R wanted to surprise her husband for their anniversary with something she'd never considered in the past. After being married for a many years, having children grow up, go off to college, get married and have children of their own, it was finally time for R to do a little something for herself, and her lucky husband. Here are just a few of the incredibly lovely and captivating R.

Jubilee Portraits : Little Dean

Little Dean is so cute, he literally stopped me in my tracks and made me let out a soft and wistful "awwwwwwwwww"...he's the kind of sweet & precious that makes your heart ache just a little. And I loved that despite the thunderstorms outside, he was bright eyed and ready to run the gambit of emotions that little babies know all too well...
