I’m only 3 months in but I really didnt think I would be so diligent about the idea of taking monthly photos of Esme. Every month, within her official week I put her in a onsie and do a mini photo shoot to capture the growth of that month. So far, I love the results and wish I would have done this with the other two girls! It takes me 10 minutes and its fun for both of us, she loves all the attention she gets from me trying to make her smile or look up at me.
She certainly owns those big blue eyes!
Esme has also become obsessed with grabbing her legs and feet and learning about them. Its so precious – I can’t wait for her to shove one in her mouth (is that weird?)!
From experience, I knew this 12 week mark was sort of a milestone. In a way she has outgrown her newbornness. She’s not just a sleepy, needy, slouchy fresh out of the womb baby. She smiles, sits on your lap, “talks” with you and wants to explore now. I know the next 3 months will be even crazier, with sitting up, playing with toys, giggles and getting into things. And I could just blink my eyes, and before I know it she’ll be toddling around, chasing her older sisters around the house!
This engagement session was part of my “very Annapolis” weekend. It started off last Friday with this session and continued with a marathon boudoir in town Saturday and later another engagement session in downtown Annapolis! Phew!
Liz and Will were so fun, free and seemingly comfortable in front of the camera. The came up with some silly ideas and were just being themselves. I love it!
This was just funny
This past weekend, I photographed Alison + Mike’s Wedding at The Oaks in Easton! I seem to shoot at The Oaks at least once every year and I love what the waterfront venue has to offer for weddings. It was a fabulous purple and yellow wedding with touches of lace details throughout. A picturesque 72 degrees and sunny day, right on the water. It was a perfect wedding day on Maryland Eastern Shore for sure- so happy to have been apart of it!

a love extra reception lighting, a little thing makes a huge impact!
I photographed baby Stone’s last session in our Year in the Life of Baby Plan. He is finally One Year Old! It is so sad when I finish these sessions but I know for sure I will see this family again as I have been photographing them since their parents wedding! The kids are always adorable, the ideas are always amazing and the family is always full of love!
