Andres Family Session || Kent Island, Maryland

Say hello to tiny little Mister Charisma! I've been excitedly following Asher's arrival and steady growth in to one of the smiliest, sweetest little dudes I've ever met, and I was absolutely elated to get to have a little session when the Andres family came back Maryland for a visit.

We had a gorgeous golden morning with a bit of Chesapeake Bay bluster, but even more wide smiles and silly faces.Β

Seriously, Asher is way adorable - and all these faces he made had me cracking up.

Andrea + Adam's Engagement Session || Baltimore, Maryland

I met up with Andrea and Adam for a wedding consult a few months ago, and we immediately went wild planning their engagement shoot - dogs! baltimore! beers! matching ridiculous workout shirts! - so many ideas running wild.

We started at their neighborhood park where puppybabe Fynn gets walks and got some seriously gorgeous golden hour time.

After we wrapped at the park, we headed over to the UnderArmour HQ where these personal trainin' babes work - it was SUCH an awesome spot to shoot.

I might be partial cos they got me a super sweet UA hat that I can't stop wearing (thanks again!), but this was such an awesome session! Can't wait for these two swolemates to tie the knot next year. -MEJ

Baby Owen - Newborn Photography Session || Annapolis, Maryland

Y'all may remember this sunny little baby bump session a few months back with the Curtis family (and if not, go check it out cos it's seriously adorable!) - now sweet Owen is here, and things are extraextraextra sweet, if not a little sleepy...

Dillon is taking the role of Big Brother like a total champ and couldn't stop smiling showing off his new baby bro.

Owen's nursery is so cozy and very Maryland - I just loved working in the dreamy natural light we had that day.

Even if baby brother isn't in the mood for an outfit change, Dillon totally takes up the charge of super brother (can you blame him, though - that cape is awesome!).
