Cooling Off At the Beach | Maryland Family Photographer

Summer seems to have arrived in full force. It was a scorching hot day but you would never know it by looking at this beautiful family. She is an old friend from college. I moved away before she had her first child, but it’s fun to spend time with her now and see a little bit of her personality in each beautiful girl.

Shhh it’s a surprise… For father’s day, this mother contacted me to take pictures of her gorgeous children as a surprise for her husband. Dad is a soccer guy and all the kids appear to have inherited his fancy footwork. We gathered our toys and headed to soccer fields and played. It was one of those days we rarely get on the east coast. I call it California weather, no humidity, blue skies, just perfect!

Mothers. What would we do without them? The mother child bond is a remarkable and powerful one. A warm hug from your mother feels just as comfortable at 40 (well, 39 to be exact) as it does at 4 weeks. We depend on our mothers for unconditional love, comfort, and security. Their encouragement helps us through our challenges that alone, we never thought we could manage. It’s the hardest job in the world, yet undeniably the most rewarding.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I want to share some pictures I took a couple of months ago of Angie and her new, adorable baby Connor. Oh, there is just nothing like a new baby… that fuzzy, wrinkly skin, those fingers and toes so itty bitty you look at your own, amazed that you, too, were little like that once. Angie is an amazingly, relaxed and confident new mom. Angie and Connor are perfect examples of that magical mother-child bond. He cries, she sings, he stops. He fusses, she holds him, he’s calm. He can tell that touch is hers.

It’s Mother’s Day so my blog entry is dedicated to motherhood but I cannot forget Chris, a wonderfully dedicated father and husband. He jumped right in to change Connor’s diapers, snuggle him and give Eskimo kisses.

This couple truly works together in their parenting.

Sweet Beginnings | Maryland Maternity Photographer

What better thing to do on Valentine’s Day than document the love between 2 people. Angie and Chris are the cutest couple, so sweet and so in love. You know when you see a couple and they just look like they belong together? These two were just that. Angie and Chris are expecting their first child in March and I was flattered to be invited into their home to take pictures of this momentous time in their lives.

After enduring Snowmageddon, spring was on Angie’s mind.

Do you see the cross? Amazingly that is really a BLANK wall. I promise, I did nothing fancy. God is obviously watching over Angie and Chris and their baby.
