Perez Family Southern Maryland Fall Sessions

As I wrap up another amazing fall season with over 30 families served I have made a goal for myself to actually blog and share the images from this season! You see, every year I get so wrapped up in the hustle of the fall season and holiday minis that I always lapse on sharing the images! The Perez family is a perfect example! The images from their second milestone session last year were some of my favorites of the season but I never got to share them! So this year I cheated a bit and combined the images from their second milestone session from 2019 and this years fall session ☺️. You can check out their first milestone session here.

Julia and Chris are friends of ours from college and we have many a late night shenanigan story shared with them. What’s fun about our sessions is that we have recently tried to schedule them so that Sterling can come at the end and we can at least spend time together. This year with COVID we haven’t gotten to see them so it was especially exciting to get to take their pictures and meet up at a park to socially distance spend time together. Finley was only 2 months old so we planned for Sterling and Finley to drive with me and hang out at the park while I took these images. It worked out great because they got to meet Finley in a socially distanced way.

What’s crazy to see in this joint post is how much of a difference a year makes! Jackson looks SO much older in the 2020 images than from the year before! He’s notably taller but has lost some of his baby face too. Each boy is so uniquely different and great in their own way. Jackson is outgoing, adventurous and a strong leader. Ryan is observant, loving, sweet and independent. I had a blast walking through Black Hill Park near Gaithersburg Maryland for our session this year and downtown Frederick last year with this sweet family. We played games, used our imagination and laughed a lot!

Enjoy this joint blog post of our sweet friends and their precious family!

Rafferty Family Portrait Session

Rafferty Family Portrait Session

— Frederick, Maryland —

When we were debating whether to make the move up to Baltimore, one of the points on the pro/con list that came up with that this business had started in Richmond and had a large client base there.  Ultimately when we decided to take a chance and move, I have to admit that I was nervous about the future of this business.  I didn’t know if I’d be able to get clients in Baltimore or even if anyone up here would be interested.  And then we announced we were moving and I was blown away with gratitude when Krystal contacted me almost immediately.

Krystal and I were sorority sisters at JMU but hadn’t been in touch for a few years since we had graduated.  It was such a wonderful surprise to find that she had been following along in my photography journey!  Not only that but she wanted to schedule portrait sessions for her family!   She told me she was pregnant with her third baby and wanted to ensure she could get photographs of their family in this precious stage in life.  It was a great feeling, my first session in Maryland was going to be with an old friend who I already knew and felt comfortable with!Read More »
