loving what I do

These are the days I work long hard hours for! xoxxo Kerry & Scott

“Maria- The slideshow took my breath away!! I never in my wildest dreams thought that pictures could capture so much from our wedding but you managed to do just that!! Thank you again!! You have no idea how thankful we are for the wonderful talent and job that you do”

gwenie and evie- headshots

I was so excited when Angela emailed me about taking some headshots of her two cutie pie little girls, Gwenie & Evie. Their family drove all the way to Baltimore from Texas for the holidays so I was so lucky to have met them while they were here. Gwenie and Evie are so natural in front of the camera, and so cute! They should be, as you can catch glimpses of them on Toddlers and Tiaras!!! Can’t wait to see them on TV and be able to say “I photographed her!”

 

Best of luck ladies on all your pageant endeavors!

Sarah and Dave are the most adorable things. They traveled down to Baltimore for their engagement session They are getting married at the Spring Hill Manor in Ivyland, PA in October. We started shooting in Federal Hill and then traveled up to Cromwell Valley Park for a more country feel. I think it was the perfect combination of country and city feels for their session. These two were oozing with love… I was just so excited to be snapping 🙂 Congrats and I cannot wait til October!

miss charlotte

I first met this cutie pie in the spring. We did a photo shoot at my house which went …ehhh OK. Charlotte was not so keen on taking photos… but she opened right up this time. She started walking just in time for her birthday photos so it was a perfect time to capture her new skills, and by the end we were best friends, well next to her Elmo.

 

Walking around Fells Point was a great idea, cobblestone, water, Bond Street Wharf… Miss Charlotte was a lady of the town!charlotte IMG_7890 IMG_7914 IMG_8003 IMG_8028 IMG_8087 IMG_8166 IMG_8191_1 IMG_8206_1 IMG_8235_1 IMG_8256_1 IMG_8289_1 IMG_8339_1 IMG_8390_1 IMG_8409_1 IMG_8500_1 IMG_8505_1 IMG_8527_1 IMG_8553_1 IMG_8578_1

its been a long time…..

Well, its been a long time since I last blogged. I know its not one of my strong suits, this whole blogging thing, and well 2012 was a busy year for me, a great year but busy.

In addition to shooting, editing, and raising one adorable little boy … I was also planning a wedding, 3 hours away. Lets be honest, I go to a lot of weddings, so mine had to be more unique, more awesome, and in comparison, the most amazing wedding ever. I didn’t have high standards at all. Lucky for everyone reading my blog, I didn’t get into everything about the planning.

It was a perfect day. 76 degrees and sunny (I think I would have preferred cloudy). Minor stress from not being in charge and photographing it myself but end of the day it could not not have gone better- and I married the most wonderful man and best father in the world. He even cried when he saw me 🙂 The hardest part was not having my dad there, but I know he was looking down on us and loving it.

The reception was amazing, great food and fabulous music by the Rollerblades. Here is a list of my most fabulous vendors!
