Newborn & Child Portraits

Christoph’s Fresh 48

I have been so so terrible lately about keeping up with my blog posts!!  The last couple months have just been busy, and I’ve probably been watching more television in my spare than I should.  Anyway, my nephew, Christoph, was born at the end of July, and isn’t he so absolutely darling?!  I was so excited to meet him and spend lots of time snuggling with him.  Congratulations to my sister and her husband!!!

Weddings

Swann Wedding

My brother is married!!! They had their actual wedding ceremony in ROME, which is pretty amazing.  But when they returned they had a wedding reception so they could celebrate with all their families and friends.  The location was beautiful and it was such a nice, sunny, day.  I was so happy to do the pictures for them, aren’t they a beautiful couple?!  These are some of my favorites from the couple & family photos we took before the reception began.

Newborn & Child Portraits

Harper’s Ferry Shoot

July is a big month for our family!  Our oldest daughter’s birthday is in July, and my youngest daughter has her half birthday this month, too.  So now I have a three year old and an eighteen month old!! A couple weeks ago we took the girls down to Harper’s Ferry to go on a fun family walk, and I had to take the opportunity to shoot some pictures! Maybe I’m biased, but I think these are just the cutest girls!!

Sibling Session

This week I did a sibling session for two brothers and it was such a great time.  I am dying over the cuteness of these brothers!!  Christian is the best big brother and you could really see and feel how much he loves his little brother.  We have been in the middle of a heatwave lately but luckily it wasn’t too bad the evening we did this shoot.  Plus, we chose a beautiful location for the pictures!

Maternity

Katie’s Maternity Session

My sister is having a baby!!! As I mentioned in my previous post, her and her husband are expecting a baby boy later this summer.  This will be the first grandson on our side of the family, so we are all very excited.  This past weekend was her baby shower, and while I was done in the area I did the farm pictures for the nursery, and also some maternity pictures!  I really enjoy doing maternity sessions because of that expecting mama glow!  It was supposed to be a cloudy day-but ended up being SO sunny.  I am so happy with how these turned out!

Events

Apple Grove Farm

My sister and her husband are expecting a baby boy later this summer and I am so excited for them! I can’t wait to meet this little baby-who is already completely spoiled.  My brother-in-law’s family farms, and so they’ve decided to do a farm theme for the nursery.  One element they wanted to include in the nursery was actual pictures of the farm!  I took some pictures for them over the weekend and I can’t wait to see them hanging up in his room.

 

Business Portraits

Colleen’s Business Session

I met Colleen online through her Lipsense group on Facebook (I love Lipsense!!).  I was so happy to have the opportunity to do some portraits for her to use for her business.  The location is one of my new favorites, and we saw lots of beautiful wildlife there that morning (a family of geese and a little quail egg).  Plus, isn’t Colleen gorgeous?! This was such a fun shoot!

Family Pictures

Ferons Family Photos

Let me start off by saying I love this family so much!  They are dear friends of mine and their children are just so adorable and precious.  They picked the absolute BEST location for their pictures.  It was close by, and although I had driven by it several times before-I had never realized how beautiful it was until we stopped for pictures.  It was a cloudy evening and even a little bit of rain, but the major rain held off and everything turned out great!  Aren’t they the absolute sweetest?!
