Family Shoot on the Chesapeake

Downs Park is one of my favorite places on the peninsula.  It's right on the water, you can see the Bay Bridge in the distance, they have a beach, trails in the woods and a lovely garden.  It's really a perfect place for family photos!!  This adorable bunch braved the sea breeze for some last minute photos for the holiday season and I couldn't be happier with the results!!  Such a gorgeous, gorgeous family!!  Here are some of my favorites :)

Coming Soon, Baby Brantley!

What do cargo planes, yoga and JAGs have in common?  A baby of course!!!  Both Jill and her husband, Dustin, are in the Air Force - she is a reservist who flies cargo planes (and practices yoga in her spare time!) and Dustin is a JAG.   Their jobs have taken them all over the country, but they will be welcoming their little bundle of joy here in Maryland where they will stay for a few years :)

Jill suggested downtown Annapolis for the shoot and she got the perfect day for it!  The sun was shining, it was warm, and the light towards the end of the session set the colorful leaves ablaze.  It was such a great day!  Enjoy some of my favorites from the shoot :)

Breslin and I used to work together and I was so excited when she asked me to do their family photos!! She would always tell us the funniest stories about her little boys and things they would do and say, so I couldn't wait to meet these little guys :)  They just moved to quite the fall photo friendly home, so it was not only a convenient location for them, but also got me giddy inside.  Will greeted me by giving me a Toy Story sticker to wear (which now has a home on one of my camera bags) and Cal gave me a tour of the house and showed me his Hot Wheels collection.  These two have so much personality and it was just a really fun shoot on a fabulous fall day!  Enjoy!

Annapolis Wedding :: Ashley + Chris

I fell in love with this sweet couple during their engagement shoot in Ocean City, Maryland a couple of months ago.  It was so incredibly obvious that they were meant for each other.  Love was all around and the vibe definitely warmed my heart on that chilly day!  Now,  speeding up to  just a few weeks ago, they tied the knot nautical style, at the bride's parents' waterfront home in Annapolis, Maryland.  That same vibe was there, not only emulating from the bride and groom, but from all of the guests that came to celebrate their love.  I gave me the chills and really made so happy that I was able to document it.  It was an amazing day and night and I am so happy to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Kidwell!!!
