Kathi + Marty | Lothian Wedding Photographer

Wow....what an amazing weekend!  Kathi & Marty are married and it was an awesome celebration of love & waiting on the one God has for you.  They were just so in love with one another the entire day...and all the days before...and it was so lovely to see!  And Debbie & I were so tickled when they both kept pulling us aside to share little surprises they had for one another throughout the day.

They celebrated with just a few {hundred} of their closest friends & family at Marty's home church in Lothian, Maryland.  We couldn't have asked for a better day.  The rain held off until the party was over, we got some amazing cloud cover for their Bride & Groom photos, and their wedding party was just so fun to work with - crutches an all!

Enjoy this quick peek at their day! 

Albie IV | Arnold Newborn Photographer

Well, the first grandson on my husband's side is here!  Baby Albert the IV arrived just in time for the start of baseball season - much to his father's delight, and his mother's too, I'm sure!  

He came in to the world with a head full of gorgeous hair & a sweet little look that will melt your heart.  And such a content little fella too!  

When mom asked if we could do his newborn session, I had a few ideas.  We definitely wanted to get him with big sisters - always the most challenging of any shot!  As well as some to show his interests in everything pirates & Orioles baseball - because he came out telling us he loved those two things, right?   Well, at least his daddy loves them!  

Meet Albie, the fourth in a line of wonderful Albert's!

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!

Madilyn & Regan | Annapolis Child Photographer

Madilyn & Regan are the sweet daughters of my even sweeter friend Stephanie.  Steph & I have known each other through the awkward teenage years, the dating {really tall} boys, getting engaged, married, & now having our third kids within weeks of one another.  To say she's one of my best friends is an understatement.  And I love that her husband & her kids have become just as dear to me as well.  

Before these two little girls get their worlds turned upside down by baby brother, they met me downtown in Annapolis for my mini sessions.  I actually picked one of the streets we shot on because Steph sent me Madi's outfit via text.  I just couldn't resist using my favorite coral & yellow Annapolis house!  (even though we did have to squeeze between a parked car & the front door!)

And I THINK Regan might be starting to not hate me - win!  She actually gave me some smiles...that or it was smiles for her daddy behind me, but we can pretend it was me.  

Here are their very spring-like photos.  Love these girls!  And I cannot wait to see a boy version of these adorable babes!

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...
