Field to Fork – My night eating amongst the cows

I had the most wonderful foodie experience a few weeks ago! I attended the Field-to-Fork dinner at St. Brigid’s Farm on the Eastern Shore. I was lucky enough to be a guest of the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association since I do some marketing work on behalf of Cabot Cheese and I also love food and talk about it all the time. So even before dinner, myself and a group of food bloggers from the D.C. area were treated to a private wine and cheese pairing at Crow Vineyard. Cabot’s Favorite Foodie the wonderful Candace Karu led us through the cheese offering from Cabot’s new Farmer’s Legacy Collection. One of the folks from Crow Vineyard paired their wines with the various cheeses. And the were both SO DELICIOUS! Who knew such great wine was made right here in Maryland?

After our wine and cheese fun, we headed down the road to St. Brigid’s Farm for our yummy dinner.  All 140 of us sat at one long table. It was an intimate dinner with strangers who became dining companions. The evening was beautiful. The food delicious and the scenery was breathtaking. We were surrounded by cows who ate grass and wondered what we were doing.  The food and wine were local and we even sat across from Kevin who made the sausage for the main dish.  It was just an awesome evening and I can’t wait to go back next year. Enjoy some photos from the evening’s events!!

To the Moon and Back – Week 39

A few weeks ago we introduced the girls to the wonderful movie “Hook.” They absolutely loved it and decided to try and fly by jumping off stairs and onto each other’s beds. The next day they donned fairy wings and we went into the woods right behind our house to have and “adventure.” It’s amazing how much fun you can have so close to home. We saw frogs, animal tracks and even found a raccoon skull. Bangarang!!

Now visit my friend Ft. Myers photographer Shannon Dodge’s blog to see what’s happening in her world!

Taylor’s Annapolis Senior Session (annapolis senior photographer)

Meet Taylor – Arundel High School Class of 2015 and one of my awesome senior reps. She is just a natural in front of the camera – so at ease and exuding confidence.  We shot all over Downtown Annapolis and literally shot until the rain came in. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and she’s looking forward to attending college next year. Good luck Taylor!!!

Jody + Dean’s Centennial Park Wedding (maryland wedding photographer)

I can’t believe I’m just getting around to blogging this intimate summer wedding! Jody & Dean eloped earlier in the year and waited until summer to have a small ceremony and with reception with close family and friends. It was a true do-it-yourself inspired by the ocean and the colors blue and orange. The incredible flowers including bouquets, table arrangements and boutonnieres were made by the brides incredibly talented friend  Melissa who owns Studio H Floral Design in Annapolis. Another friend acted as both officiant and cupcake maker while another friend did the bride’s hair and make-up. It was truly a group effort and the result was just beautiful. Such a fun day!!! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!

Venue: Centennial Park, Pavilion D

Flowers: Studio H Floral Design

Make-Up and Hair: Tiffany Williams

Haley’s Senior Session (maryland senior photographer)

Since today is this gorgeous girl’s birthday, I thought it was the perfect time to blog her senior session! Haley is a senior at South River High School in Edgewater, MD. She is sweet and smart and beautiful inside and out.  Not to mention really, REALLY tall.  We had such a great time in downtown Annapolis during her shoot. We walked around and enjoyed the weather. Changed outfits a few times. Got coffee.  And even found a few Naval Academy Midshipmen who posed for a picture. As the book that she’s reading implies, “You’re going places, girl.” Happy Birthday and Good Luck!!
