Monteiro Family & 1st Birthday Cake Smash {Goucher College in Towson, MD}

Oh the cake smash. A popular and adorable way to celebrate a child's 1st birthday! Little Anthony was no exception. We did a mini family session at Goucher before heading back to the Monteiro's home for the cake smash. At first Anthony was confused, but then he dug into the cake; spreading it on his legs and eating all the sugary goodness!

I am sure you have heard a nickname for Baltimore is "Smalltimore" because it can feel like a very small town! You know someone who knows their sister who knows their uncle. It is crazy! Small world. The "Smalltimore" story here is that I went to high school with the Hamby family, did Young Life with a few of them, and shot Austin & Dana's wedding back in 2015!

The Lindstrom family is the sweetest!! Baby Finn was one of the happiest babies I have ever photographed. He loved the camera and smiling any chance he got! We did their family session in Patterson Park; walking around near the pond to look at the ducks before venturing to the quaint streets in the city.

Repeat clients are my favorite!! And the fact that it was one of my wonderful CrossFit friends made it even more fun. We walked around Fort McHenry on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Aiden and Simone had a blast chasing each other around and I loved capturing their sibling love for one another. Such a beautiful family!

This is an exciting blog post! A dream of mine that I had when I started my business 5 years ago was to photograph my wedding couples and their growing families. In the fall of 2015 Mary and Nick got married at Rockland Estates and it was a wonderful celebration. And about a month ago, they added baby Payton was born! She is a sweet bundle of joy. She loves to kick, smile, and show off her beautiful eyes!

If you had told me a year ago that my best friend and I would be having babies 13 days apart I wouldn't have believed you. Claire and I have known each other since middle school and now we are raising our babies together! James Tyler Delin was born on February 26th and is a bundle of joy. He is most known for his adorable dark brown hair that keeps getting longer each week.

It has been nice to have a few months off from shooting to rest and get ready for Payton. However, I couldn't help but do a newborn shoot for my good friend Anna when her sweet baby Joy was born! Anna is also a wedding and family photographer and we have become close through our businesses and our pregnancies being so close together.

My beautiful niece turned THREE this past Sunday. How is that possible?! I feel like we were just taking her first and second birthday pictures. They really do grow so so fast. Each year I take pictures of Adilynn on her birthday and now we have Norah in the picture!

This was the last shoot I did in 2016! One of Kevin's best friends from Virginia Tech is expecting another baby boy in just a few weeks. JJ is very excited to be a big brother! We took a few maternity pictures at Patapsco Valley State Park and the Bergman family embraced the cold!

This is the fifth year I have photographed the Golembiesky family. I love it!! One of the goals of my business has been to have repeat family clients year after year. It is a joy to watch the kids grow each year and photograph the developing relationships with their family members. I also love how unique each child is and how it shines through more and more each year!
