Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
Baltimore is a beautiful city! It has so many great places to shoot. While I was there for Katie & Tim’s engagement session, my good friends Lillian and Felipe hired me to do an anniversary session for them. I can’t believe they’ve been married for 3 years already? I really feel like I was just in Nicaragua taking in all of it’s beauty and celebrating with my dear friends. When I asked them what they wanted their shoot to be like, they immediately started chatting about the historic parts of town. They love history, culture, and education so, it’s only fitting that we put them all together. Now I need more excuses to go to Baltimore so I can hang out with them, their happy puppy, and their comfy hammock!
I’m so lucky to have clients like Katie & Tim. I only met Katie briefly a few years ago when I shot my cousin, Sarah’s, wedding. After that wedding Katie & Tim were sold on me and let me tell you when I saw them again in Baltimore (their new home town) I was sold too! We’re all GIANT geeks and just love to make pop culture references. A side affect of their infectious geekiness is that their first location (since I have no clue what’s in Baltimore!) was to go to the Maryland Science Center in the heart of the city! What a brilliant choice! Dinosaurs, space, and everything in between. We then braved the heat for some gorgeous sunlight and cool architecture. It was at the end of the evening, sitting together at an AH-MAZING little greek place that is a favorite of Katie & Tim’s, that I sat back and took it all in. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have this job. I am ridiculously blessed and I am so glad that Katie & Tim are now my friends. I know their wedding is going to be spectacular and geektastic!
This past weekend was a whirl wind in Baltimore! I was able to spend some time with good friends and make some new ones! Here are the sneaks from Katie & Tim’s You + Me sesh as well as Lillian & Felipe’s Anniversary sesh!

If you’ve been following me on Facebook then you may have already realized I left cold and snowy NY for the somewhat warmer temperatures of the south! My excuse was for work, (I shot a beautiful wedding in Richmond, VA yesterday!) but I also used that opportunity to have a little vacation. Despite what you might think, I haven’t had a break in awhile. I know you see me traveling to all of these amazing locations, which I love, but I’m working most of my time there. So when my wonderful bride Ashley asked if I would come down to Richmond or her wedding I knew 3 things. #1 – that by November 1st, NY could potentially have snow and that I, spending most of my summer/fall shooting, wasn’t emotionally ready for snow. #2 – that I have a plethora of friends scattered down the east coast and that I would effectively receive multiple death threats, rotten vegetables, and possibly horse heads in the mail if I didn’t visit then while in town. #3 -that my body and brain really needed to take a break for more than a day or two. Thus the Road Trip was born! My friend Emily, of Emily Elizabeth Studios, and I took to the road on Friday to stop in many locations! We’ve already been to Baltimore, MD and I’m writing the blog to you in Richmond, VA. Our next stop is to go down to the Tri Piedmont area of NC! We’ll spend a few days there and then make our way back up to the Washington DC area with the possibility of swinging by Boston, MA to round out our trip! Phew! That’s a lot of driving and I’m so glad I bought my new car this past summer! (Side note, I think it’s taken me a good 5 months to come up with a fitting name for her…we’ll see if it sticks!)
Though 2012 isn’t over yet, it seems like it’s been an amazing travel year! I never expected that I’d get to meet so many amazing people and visit so many new places! I never fancied myself a traveler, I was always content to sit in my own little town. After this year of adventures though, my tastes have definitely changed! If you don’t already, make sure to follow me on Facebook & Twitter to get current updates of our exploits! There may even be a video or two on the Youtubez if you’re lucky! 😉
Oh another Side Note: I just reached 100 subscribers yesterday! What?! I’m in shock! Thank you so much everyone! Like I said in an earlier blog post, 100 subscribers = GIVEAWAY! So stay tuned for that! 😀
Here are a few snapshots from the trip already! Everything from giddy silly girls, losing my purse, amazing restaurants, to gorgeous weddings!
