This sweet little lady is supremely adored, there was non-stop doting from furry siblings and parents alike during our session.

Little moments, like this perfectly timed "Oh. Wow. We made that little rockstar? Heck yeah we did!" bit of joy? Those are my favorite!

BABY SJ || KENT ISLAND, MARYLAND

I can't imagine a more perfect way to kick off the New Year than with a sweet new baby - and here's SJ! He's already a Yanks fan, has a seriously protective big brother, and is absolutely a cuddly little heart-stealer.

TYLER + MEGAN || GRAMERCY MANSION - STEVENSON, MARYLAND

Oh, this day. This splendid, sweet, supremely easy day! The weather, the wedding party, the vibrant foliage - Megan and Tyler's day was one for the books.

1img-006-8672.jpg

Despite a questionable weather forecast early on, the day ended up being perfect, and the Gramercy Mansion grounds were absolutely ablaze with fall colors.

I've had the good fortune of knowing Tyler and his family for...basically my entire life. They're the kind of folks you want in your corner – huge hearts and nonstop laughter and always a damn good time. I quickly found out Megan's family are cut from the same cloth.

For all the giggles (and there were a LOT of them), there were also a ton of really big emotional moments. I loved capturing Tyler's first look at his beautiful bride, and Megan's quick thinking to dab tears with her bouquet ribbon.

Okay, but back to the giggles - we totally grabbed one of the mansion's sofas for some outdoor photo ops which quickly turned in to a friendly little lifting competition.

The I-Do's happened in front of a full house and beneath the sparkling ceiling of the solarium, and then it was a non-stop party until the very last second of the night.

Seriously, these guys? They don't mess around. The floor was packed all night, and beyond some sweet moves, there was no end to some serious sing-alongs.

Congratulations to these two rockstars - thank you for the incredible experience! -MEJ
