I was so thrilled to start off the spring season being a part of Amanda and Aaron’s wedding day at Kylan Barn in Delmar! One thing I ask when working with my couples is what they are most excited for on their wedding day, and if it’s simply marrying your love, I know we are […]
Do you ever meet someone and feel like you could have known each other for years? That’s basically how it felt meeting up with Katy and Ray for their downtown St. Michaels engagement session over on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I was so happy to finally get together with these two after rescheduling their […]
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, […]
You don’t really think of going to the ocean much during the winter unless you live there, I guess. It’s actually become one of my favorite times to visit the ocean because there is hardly anyone on the beach (minus the couple walking their dog) and it feels so much more like an escape… with added wind chill and freezing cold water. But I’m willing to forgo the warm water and pleasant sea breeze to feel completely at peace and (almost) alone with the sea.
We tried to pick a warmish day to do this session but you can’t have summer in Maryland in the middle of January. It makes it all that much more fun when you know you’re going to freeze, you know?! We’re all just living for the thrill of it over here. And one day when we were going through photo inspiration for something beachy, we saw Marilyn wrapped in a cardigan playing in the water (on what was most likely a nice summer evening) and we both said YES.
Something about recreating iconic photoshoots is so satisfying. I guess it’s the challenge of studying various poses and settings and trying to recreate an original scene of some sort. It kind of makes you wonder why certain images become so iconic; is it just the person in them? The photographer that took them? All the elements coming together to create something unique? Either way, I’m excited to share these with you all! xx
