BABY ARCHER || KENT ISLAND, MARYLAND

File this under new experiences: I stuck around to get in on some speedy Jeopardy! action at the end of my shoot with this gang!

Getting to know Archer and his parents was so laid back and easy to do, and we took full advantage of all the beautiful light in all the nooks and crannies of their home and back yard on this gorgeous spring day.

...AND OWEN MAKES SIX! || THE WALLER FAMILY

Be still, my wildly giddy heart! Working with the Waller crew is always nothing short of an absolute treat, but now that the latest addition is here, it’s just all the more to love! Owen has three seriously sweet siblings that are doing everything they can to welcome their baby dinosaur.

We did this session in two parts - one in-home, and one outdoors, complete with a fabulous outfit change. Be sure to check out all the other shoots I’ve had with this amazing family over the years here!

BABY JOANNA || KENT ISLAND, MARYLAND

Please give a big ol' hello + welcome to baby Joanna! This sweet little lady joined her family at the end of March, and holy moley, is she a bundle of joy. I met her mama at the local yoga studio, and it was such a lovely experience to visit her whole family at home on such a beautiful spring afternoon.

Jojo, as she's been nicknamed, brings so much -- Oh. Oh? What's that? Big brother Marco wants to tell you something? 

1img-013-7394.jpg

Yeah, hi - he wants to remind you he's also freakin' adorable and will absolutely steal the show if you give him half a chance to do so.

Seriously, this little guy was such a ham, and had SO much love for his new baby sister. I just adored watching the two interact.

He even took a break mid-shoot to read and put himself to bed (for about a wink of sleep) - apparently being a camera charmer is hard work, y'all.

Did I forget to mention Jojo has a whole mermaid thing going on?! I loved her bright nursery, the colors were so beachy-keen, and y'all know I'm always a sucker for all things aquatic.
