I cannot explain how excited I am to share this sweet session! I’ve known Nicole and Rose since they were fellow students at my high school and I previously photographed the two of them together for an anniversary session. When they reached out for photos (with news that they were expecting), my heart leapt for joy.

We started our session at The Charmery – a delicious hand crafted ice-cream shop in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore. If you haven’t been by and are in the Baltimore area, do yourself a favor and stop in! From there, we proceeded to take a casual walk around Hampden and stumbled across a nearby park. Spring blooms were beginning to flourish at the time of their session, so we were fortunate to snap a few photos in front of some cherry blossoms. These two women are such awesome people and it was wonderful to pick up where we left off, share some laughs (and ice cream), and capture their connection once again.

Nicole and Rose have since grown their family by welcoming their sweet little one, Talia, into the world on June 3rd. The hugest congratulations to them on their new addition!

Jamie and Steve’s wedding celebration took place in Atlantic Beach, NC – where Jamie is originally from. It was an absolute honor to travel down from Charlottesville to capture the excitement amongst this super fun couple and all of their friends and family. They held an outdoor ceremony (braving gusts of wind!) and entertained their guests with a delicious Mexican buffet style dinner. How fun is that?!

A huge thank you goes to my talented friend and photographer Faith Teasley for her incredible assistance capturing their day!

From Valerie (bridesmaid and awesome florist): Jamie and Steve were engaged March of 2014, in Saint Marteen and were the first couple to book the Cottage as it was still, as the bride puts is “a pile of wood!” Luckily this couple is the laid back creative type, so the enormity of the construction project did not intimate them. They had no doubt that the space would be finished and better than they could have ever imagined!

Jamie and Steve chose a palette with shades of nude and muted pastels, with splashes of gold. These colors are so reflective of this couple’s personality: very down to earth, but filled with spark and surprise!

They met the first day Jamie moved to Baltimore from North Carolina. On this life altering day and first day in the big City, Jamie got a flat tire in the McHenry tunnel! She thought maybe that was a sign to turn around and go back home, but it’s a good thing she didn’t! Five hours later, in the midst of a torrential downpour, and after being subjected to the anxiety of holding up inner city traffic for hours, Jamie’s best friend Perry managed to get her out of the traumatizing tunnel experience. Perry did what any best friend would do next – take Jamie out for drinks! It was there that Steve sat next to the beautiful wet rat that would soon be his future wife. It’s funny how one ordinary day can unfold into a complicated challenge that may change the rest of your life.

Many thanks to Style Me Pretty for the beautiful blog feature and to Martha Stewart Weddings for featuring their beach invitations!
