My stud muffin! I can’t wait for the bus to come this afternoon to see his smile and sparkle in his eyes as he walks down the stairs and spots me. ❤️
It’s been nice having a solid break from work, but I’m now itching to get my 2020 brides and grooms in front of my camera! 👰 🤵 🐕
Returning from a relaxing vacation is just what we needed to get ready for 2020! We will be spending these final days of 2019 establishing many goals for a successful and happy new year.
Merry Christmas! May all of your tummies be full of milk and cookies 🍪 🥛 🎄 🎁
Forever thankful ❤️ Happy thanksgiving to all of you!
Is throw back Thursday still a thing? I might as well go run and hide in a closet after sharing this oldie. #embarassing More on this below as I get over this FEAR of mine… • So, I’ve been following this Instagram course in order to increase my following and achieve some future goals that I have set. Task #1: Share more about MYSELF! Eeek! Somewhere in the past 5 years I have lost myself in my work, and have primarily only shown the highlight reel of my photography business with minimal amounts of what is really going on in this life of mine! Once you’ve taken a break from social media (and I’ve had my reasons), it is SO scary to hop back on here and SHARE! • Today I am choosing to share with you what I think is the most embarrassing topic and picture of myself EVER! Back in 2007, I tried out for the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleading team and made it!! Woohooo! Go Ravens! I had an amazing two years on the team and formed lifelong friendships with some of the most amazing women I have ever met (REALLY). The team is way more about serving the community and others than it is about cheering on the Ravens on GameDay. I could go on and on (which I already apologize for the long post) about everything positive I took from this experience and how it helped me become the woman I am today. The problem is that I HIDE this fact about me as much as possible. WHY?? • I have not wanted to be labeled as a cheerleader because of the negative societal narrative that associates itself with cheerleading. It’s really terrible after all of the good things that came out of that experience, that I am SO afraid of what society will think of it. Shame on me! Therefore, today I am ripping off the shame bandaid I have worn for so long and I am changing that negative narrative in my mind to be proud of the sport and its athleticism, discipline, commitment, intelligence, bravery, strength and generosity that comes with it. The women I cheered with are super humans and we should all be proud! • I hope this helps some of you tackle your fears! Want to step up and share something you’re afraid to post about? DO IT!

Woooo, I need some color back in my life! I’m completely feeling the effects of some seasonal depression. It’s cold, brown and lifeless out there 😭 At least I can look back at these fun and wine filled moments with Gia and Josh! Aren’t they the cutest? And is it 5 o’clock yet? That wine is lookin’ good!
There is just something extra special about seeing your work in print! @whatsupweddings Fall/Winter edition is out and page 66-69 is looking quite fine! Daniella and David’s wedding was an absolute dream come true and I’m so happy for them and our entire team of vendors to be published in this magazine!
667 photographs captured (no joke), to gain one portrait of my two loves looking at the camera at the same time! Obviously, I love all of those crazy in between moments as well, but Mama just wanted ONE of them looking. Shout out to all the family photographers who run around chasing other people’s children 🤪 I will stick to weddings and only my children, haha!
