A ceremony in your families backyard on the Chesapeake Bay, a party right next to it to follow and one amazing day all around. Allison and Drew made the trip from their home in Texas to celebrate their big day and I couldn’t be more honored to have photographed it all! From initially meeting them […]
When I first suggested going to Shenandoah for Jessica and Garrett’s engagement session, I don’t think we fully knew what we were getting ourselves into. I drove through the park entrance with 25 minutes still to go until I reached our meeting spot and each overlook had me thinking what am I doing to this […]
I envision a lot of what life was like hundreds of years ago. It isn’t a time any of us can go back to, but is one that we can recreate and visit for a short time. I’m glad I’m not the only dreamer out there who is a lover of the old world, who […]
This shoot was just a thought in my mind last November, trying to get ahead for the slow season to come in the winter months. I had thought it would be fun to do a wintry shoot in the snow with a friend and her horse and transform that into an ethereal styled shoot with […]
I was thrilled when Sophie reached out to me to photograph her wedding this year. I mean, who doesn’t hope to work with people they know and love?! Sophie and Nate got married on their 7th anniversary, right on the day. Initially, they had a wedding planned for a larger party on the Eastern Shore, […]
I thought Family Friends was a good title considering these guys have been my friends for so long they feel like family (think circa 2005). And also because I’m over their house almost every day, they have me over for dinner like, twice a week… this really isn’t an exaggeration, I promise! And this couple have been together for basically the same amount of time -they’ve kind of reached that point where they have lost their individual names and are just referred to as Nick and Carson. Let me just get straight to what you all are thinking – NO, this session did NOT end in a proposal, as much as it seems like it in that last photo. You know, sometimes you get tired and have to take a knee to rest. That’s really all it was. Carson thought it was hilarious but she also thinks everything is funny.
Let me just talk briefly about the little man who opened this little family session. He is my favorite little boy in the WORLD and also calls me Aunt Megan (sometimes (when asked to)). I didn’t realize how happy I’d feel to be able to watch my best friends kids be able to grow up and how awesome it is to brag about how insanely smart and funny they are. He is undeniably the smartest little boy I’ve ever met.
We did this little session right in their backyard and even Carson’s aunt happened to be in town to be in some of the shots. After we were all done, just chatting in their backyard, I came home and realized I was holding such a treasure on my memory card. At first it was because I couldn’t believe I got pictures of the whole family including Nick (you know, reluctant boyfriends), but it was mostly because I have these memories of my friends in such a happy time of their lives.
SO, cheers to it ALMOST being a new year, full of new memories to be made (and captured!). I can’t wait to find all the exciting things that will be happening in my friends lives and in my own (including the growth of this little business!). xo
