An interesting day at our house...

So today we experienced some firsts, "big girl" underwear and a new look for our dog. We are trying to get Haley interested in potty training (I know parents out there know what a daunting task this can be!) and so I decided considering her LOVE of all things Disney I figured Minnie Mouse and Princess underwear should do the trick! This is as far as we got...

Then, our dog came home from the vet looking like this... poor thing. She was terribly embarrassed trying to fit her GIANT head out the door at the doctors office. She wouldn't even turn and face me for the fist picture, she just stared sadly at the wall.

Strawberries ripe and ready to be picked!

Over the weekend our family ventured out to Homestead Farms to do some strawberry picking. We went to this farm in the fall to pick apples as well. The strawberries were so ripe and bright red and so CHEAP compared to the grocery store! We had a great time, I highly recommend it! And the drive up to the farm in MD. is a beautiful drive. Plus, it feels good to support the little guy.
Here are some pictures from our day!

Memorial Day...

To all those who sacrifice for our country we say Thank You! I can't imagine sacrificing the things that these families sacrifice for the greater good.
Here's a little patriotic image that I took awhile back while hanging out with some photographer friends working on some lighting skills. One day, when I have some free time I'll edit the rest of them!
Hope you have all enjoyed your holiday weekend.

A family affair...

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting this very sweet family! With all the kids and grandkids together they wanted to take advantage of this time and have some family pictures done. The grandkids were so adorable and sweet and of course had very adoring grandparents! I had fun with you all, hope you all had fun too! Enjoy your preview.

It always does my heart good to see grandparents set a wonderful example of a loving marriage for their kids. These two are still so in love after more than 30 some years! So sweet...

Grant Wedding Slideshow...

This past weekend I was able to work with Inbal More Photography second shooting at a wedding in Baltimore at the Tremont Hotel. I had lots of favorites so I just decided to put them into a slideshow. I spent most of my time with the guys so this is "Guy" focused.

Some out of the box photos....

So, I have to do one more post of my images with baby Lochlan. I tried some different, more artsy stuff with Mike and Nicole, since they were good friends and I didn't worry about then thinking I was nuts when asking if I could lay they're baby on a platter on the kitchen table. :-) Nothing too crazy, just some different images than I normally do and I'm loving how they came out!

Day Two...

The first day that I did the Carlisle family it was a little cold and gloomy, so I went back yesterday (with the 24mm 1.4 lens that I'm trying out) and did some more family pictures outside and Brixton's 1 year old pictures! Dad is a first year medical resident and usually isn't home at night so we thought we weren't going to be able to get these, but not only was it a gorgeous night but dad also got home early! We got some great sunset shots. Check out Brixon's big baby blues! And check back b\c I'm also going to post some more artsy pictures of baby brother Lochlan that I just love and have to share!

The hazards of shooting a newborn...

Especially boys! We always know there's a chance of this happening but we always soldier on! Sorry Mike!

The newest addition....

I'm in KS. to photograph the newest addition to my college roommate, Nicole's family! Lochlan was born May 1st, exactly one month after his older brother turned one! So, needless to say Nicole has her hands full but is doing such a great job! So, take a look at the adorable Lochlan and his big brother Brixton!

Ethan in the park...

Ethan, normally a bubbly silly boy decided to show his more serious, GQ side in the park during our photo session the other day. Funny how they just know when you want them to smile and decide to do the opposite! But, we still had fun! Get a look at these baby blues!
