To the Moon and Back – Week 15

We are on Spring Break this week and came down to the beach in Ocean City, MD, for a few days with some friends. The sun was out today even though it was super windy we headed to the beach for a little while. Sun + sand + my girls = priceless!

Now head over to my sweet friend Las Vegas Photographer Nikki Matthews’ blog to see what her adorable kids are up to!

The beach is my favorite place, wish we lived closer!

To the Moon and Back – Week 14

Well, it’s a mixed bag this week. Finley was sick for most of last week with a fever that lasted five days. So, she wasn’t really into pictures. I snapped her picture literally five minutes ago but I kinda love it. It’s raining and cold so we had to stay inside and stand in front of my boring white wall. She did one pose and I said, “I already took that picture.” Then she stopped to think and I snapped this. She always wants to give me something and she never disappoints.

Ryan and I enjoyed the warm weather yesterday and played with some recently bloomed forsythia petals. She had them in her hands and was blowing them and I had an idea and told her to lie down. I made a little “halo” of petals. She looks angelic which we all know is far from reality!

So, that’s my story this week. Now head over to visit my beautiful friend Las Vegas photographer Carrie Terrones blog.

Ahhhhh….these are just gorgeous. Sorry Finley was sick but man she gives the BEST pictures. And love the pop of color with Ryan!

Senior Rep Shoot – Hannah (maryland senior photographer)

This girl. THIS. GIRL Hannah is one of my Senior Reps from Arundel High School, Class of 2015. We had such a fun time taking these photos at the dairy farm in Gambrills. I love how she goes from “sugar to spice.” The angelic white lace and flowered headband transforms into a cropped jean jacket, black dress and combat boots. She is so gorgeous inside and out and it was jut a pleasure to take her picture. I am now booing senior portrait sessions for the Class of 2015. But don’t worry class of 2014 – there’s still time for yours as well. Click here to read my Senior magazine and get the details!

Such gorgeous lighting in all of these! My favorite is the jean jacket by the fence, so good!

“girl” project – Girl Scouts Part 2

Can I just say how much I love this project? This was my third round of the “girl” project – this time with another local Girl Scout Troop. They are just so fun and I love spending time with these girls and learning about their dreams. I think it’s so interesting that the most popular answer to the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” is teacher! Maybe because they are all school age? Or maybe we just gonna have the most amazing teachers in the future!

Thanks girls for being awesome!!!



To the Moon and Back – Week 13

This week I decided on simple portraits of the girls. It rained ALL WEEKEND so I put them against the white wall and broke out the off-camera flash to add a little depth and warmth to the images. I also purposely put them in white shirts because I didn’t want their clothes to be a distraction. I took pictures of them smiling, giggling, scowling, even sighing. But I chose these pictures becauseĀ  just love their expressions. It’s all in the eyes, it’s all about them connecting with me through my camera. One – a little defiant. The other one – eager to please. Guess which is which.

Now head over to my sweet friend Ft. Collins’ Photographer Julie Livermore’s blog to see what her handsome sons are up to!!

I didn’t know you were so talented with OCF! Love pure, simple portraits like this. It really draws you into their pretty, unique hair and eye colors!
