Tricia, Cece & Natalie - A Mother's Love | Annapolis Photographer

Tricia came across my A Mother's Love sessions through our mutual friend Kelly.  And because I've never tried these type of sessions before, I was just really excited to get some mommy's out from behind their camera & in some lasting images with their children.  

Tricia told me she had two little girls, and we would probably need her husband's help to corral them in Downtown Annapolis.  With me being so largely pregnant, she was right!  Thanks, Dad, for coming to make sure the kids didn't run in to any traffic & that I didn't either!  

Cece was instantly my hand-holder - I felt so honored!  I had to actually ask her to let go of my hand so I could hold my camera!  And the constant little girl conversations she offered up were adorable - such a fun age.  Seeing how sweet she was with her little sister, Natalie, just made my heart swell & think of my girls together.  Sisters are such an invaluable source of friendship, irritation, love & continual enjoyment.

Enjoy their photos...and again, thanks Dad for helping out & popping in for a few photos.  You all were great!  

Beverly & Anderson | Annapolis Family Photographer

Beverly is one of my dear sweet friends...and we happen to be pregnant at the same time this go-around!  That has happened with a lot of my girlfriends - don't drink whatever we all drank!  She is due with baby #2 in late June and I am excited to be able to document that next chapter in their lives when it happens.

In the mean time, Bev asked if I'd be able to fit her & Anderson in for A Mother's Love session before our baby #3 arrived.  Why of course!!  She used this session as a surprise for her husband & I've now been given permission to share!

And although she's tired, chasing an active toddler boy, I think she is simply glowing lately.  Their interactions during our time together just made me smile.  It's such a sweet thing to see how great it is that God has made your friends go from loving, caring people, to wonderful & lovely parents.  

Enjoy Beverly & her little man, Anderson...

Matthew, Jonathan & Sarai | Annapolis Family Photographer

Matthew, Jonathan & Sarai are three siblings who we've been connected with for years.  I remember meeting their dad, Matt, and his family, before he even married his wonderful wife Trish.  

So when Matt contacted me rather last-minute about surprising his wife with some photos for Mother's Day, I was really excited!  Yes, I am almost ready to pop this baby out, but hey, why just sit around & wait?  If I can still work, still get down, still control my camera, then I'm going to still be taking photos...especially for such dear friends!

Enjoy Trish's Mother's Day surprise...her three children in photos...together...smiling!  {Every mother's dream, right?}

 

Goldbeck Family | Annapolis Family Photographer

The last time I saw the Goldbeck family their kids were well littler than me.  And now, I need a darn step stool for these "little" ones!  They have grown so much and are really funny to be around now.  

I really enjoyed getting to catch up a little & walk around Annapolis with them last weekend.  When clients return, it's a pleasure to see them & really call them friends instead.  

Enjoy their photos!

Clara & family | Downtown Annapolis Family Photographer

I know that MANY of my family always looks forward to Clara's annual sessions.  What will she wear?  What cool outfit did her mom find?  Will that adorable dog be there?  Well, the wait is over!  I met with Clara & her parents & her puppy, Luna, on Saturday's mini sessions in Downtown Annapolis.  And as usual, we had a great time.  It's like meeting friends downtown for a walk around get-together...but I just happen to make them stop every 5 minutes & take some photos.  Totally normal!  

Well, I won't bore you any more with words, it's time for the photos.  Here's a little peek of what we captured...
