Kristina & Matt

Maryland Maternity Photographers

Families & Lifestyle / 2016 . 04 . 30

I’m not sure I’ll ever get a blog post out while a baby is still in the person I’m photographing at a maternity session. I’m too behind on blogging for that! But this session needed to be shared because I just adore these two.

I met Kristina and Matt on their wedding day for the first time. We explored the beach together, they danced into the night, and we realized that on this day, while photographing their maternity session, we really got to know each other. And they’re awesome and I’m so glad they’re procreating. It just proved to me that my clients are always the coolest people amen.

I met Liz and Spencer when they partied hard (Liz with a broken leg, no less) at their friends wedding a few years ago. It didn’t stop them from joining in on the dance floor which was the best kind of foreshadowing for their own wedding day. A halloween wedding with jack-o-lanterns, fall foliage all around, tables full of candies, and beer that never stopped flowing as everyone danced in the little barn at the Riverside on the Potomac. 

This is how you party.

9 Tips for Picking an Engagement Session Location

9 Tips for Picking an Engagement Session Location

Families & Lifestyle / 2016 . 04 . 22

The location of your photos will help to define the mood of the pictures.

I don’t want to be a buzzkill, but if you’ve been lusting after photos of the gorges in Oregon and you live in Miami, matching the aesthetic isn’t going to be ideal, but that doesn’t mean you should give up all hope and tell your photographer to just meet you at the nearest city park.

As a photographer, I’m always down to help my clients find a location, especially for those who are traveling in and don’t know the area, but time and time again I’ve been shown that my clients are honestly SO awesome at this. If you’re on the hunt for a spot for your own photographs and feeling a little lost, I have some general guidelines I’ve found helpful and I wanted to share the 9 tips to keep in mind when looking for your engagement session location.
