When Elle reached out to me wanting to do a southern inspired maternity session with a pink backdrop I was all in! This sweet family is getting ready to welcome another baby girl into the world and they can’t wait to meet her. Emmy is SO excited to be a big sister and kept kissing her mommy’s tummy during the shoot!

Baltimore really is “Smalltimore!” Katie and I went to elementary and high school together back in the day. It is crazy to think back to the days of sleepovers and playdates! Now Katie is married and they are expecting their first baby boy in a few months. They can’t wait to meet their son!

So many wonderful families! A lot of wedding photographers only shoot weddings, but I absolutely LOVE taking pictures of families as they grow after the wedding day. From maternity, to newborn, to family photos year after year, it is one of the greatest joys of my business.

It feels like just yesterday I was taking pictures of baby James in Delin’s house! Time really flies. Two years later, and James is now a big brother to sweet baby Allie. James loves to hug and kiss her and was so adorable with her during the session. He is going to be so protective over her!

Welcome to the world, baby Caleb! You may remember the sweet Rineer family from Abram’s newborn session a few years ago. Now they have welcomed a second handsome baby boy and they are in love. Abram was beyond adorable when he would hold his baby brother. He would look at him and say, “aww!”. It was so precious!

Welcome to the world baby Chloe! Elyse and Bryan did their maternity session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens a few months ago, and now they have a precious baby girl. Chloe’s nursery theme is bunnies which worked out perfectly since their family already has a pet bunny! It was quite an ordeal trying to get the bunny to sit still near the baby. He just wanted to eat! It was adorable.

I can’t get enough of this family!! Beatrix and Julian are adorable and loved getting their pictures taken for their family mini session. Loch Raven Reservoir had beautiful green trees and leaves on the ground which made for the perfect fall afternoon!

You may recognize this beautiful family from sweet Lydia’s newborn session a few years ago! We did their mini family session at Jerusalem Mill and it was fun seeing how grown up these two kids are. They loved playing together and running around during the session!

It was an honor to take photos for one of the pastors Khori Smith from our church last month! The Smith and Padgett families were excited to have the whole gang together for family photos with the cousins and adults. The kids had a blast running around Jerusalem Mill during their session!
