This week has been super busy with weddings and Galas for charities that I work with. I thought it would be fun to tell you about a couple of those charities for #fridayintroductions .
.
.
Mission of Mercy is a local organization in Frederick, MD that provides free health care to those that are underinsured or do not have insurance at all. I came across the organization through a friend last year as she asked me if I could donate my time and photograph the event. It was so much fun and I’m grateful they asked me to come back this year. .
.
AMAR helps rebuild lives in the Middle East- particularly in Iraq. This too was introduced to me through a friend in Frederick and I hold it dear to my heart. I love that the foundation is working to enable the people of Iraq with tools and resources to rebuild themselves- making them self reliant.

Last week during dinner I sat with the president of the local hospital. I asked him what he liked to do during his free time. With a big smile on his face, he said he loved to watch his daughter play her high school sports. I loved that! I loved the humility behind the statement. I loved his enthusiasm. And I loved that though he was so important, he knew there were other things more important.
.
.
So that’s what I do in my spare time- or lack thereof. I have met some amazing people and my heart has been softened. I don’t have a lot of money but I hope that donating my time and images can make a difference somehow.

Did you book your Mini Sessions yet? The link is in the bio. I still have some slots left but they are filling up fast. Thank you to all those who have already booked! I’m so excited to work with you! 🙌🏼 #frederickmdphotographer #minisessions #frederickphotographer #familyportraits

Yeah...I lived my love of running vicariously through this Senior Session. #seniorportraits #classof2019

“I can't believe how incredible the photos look! Brent and I loved looking through each one last night. They made me all teary-eyed because I feel like you really captured a joyful family feeling and I am excited to display them in my home to remind us of that during all the not-so-joyful times. You also took pictures of each of my kids that are beautiful and, to me, let their personalities come through. My little goal of having a picture for the Christmas letter with none of the heads cut off now seems funny - you are a real artist. Thank you for this wonderful gift to all of us. It is a treasure and will be enjoyed daily.”

And then I cried because I am not worthy of this beautiful review but humbled to be given the opportunity to capture a beautiful family. #customerreview #photographyfeedback

Congratulations to the happy couple from Saturday’s wedding! From the colors, to the weather, to the beautiful people we were privileged to photograph: we couldn’t have asked for a better day

You guys! Thank you for booking your mini sessions! I was so happy to see the requests come in and to even have to add times. If you haven’t booked your mini, follow the link in the profile before a perfect time slot gets taken .

Speaking of perfection, how handsome are these groomsmen? Today is wedding #️⃣1️⃣ of the season with @kellibrewerphotography. Forecast is cloudy skies with a slight chance of rain. I’ll take it over thunderstorms.

Here it is!! Fall Mini Session Dates: 🍂

October 6th and October 12th. Both evening times... AND... I was being so productive I added Christmas Tree Farm Mini dates! 🙌🏼🌲 Follow the link in the profile. Choose your date, time, check out, and let’s talk outfits!
I can’t wait!!

I went to At Home today and there was so much Christmas decor, I couldn’t handle it and I literally had to walk out. I love FALL! I feel like it’s so short lived by retail! I’ll announce my Fall Mini Sessions tomorrow at 12:00pm! 2 dates. 2 locations. Let’s capture the golden foliage and your beautiful families and make it last! #fallminisessions #minisessions #frederickphotographer

I’m here! I’m here! I’ve been MIA for a few weeks. Life has been busy with back to school, running a marathon, family, and so much photography work. I didn’t feel guilty taking a break because- you’re keeping me busy so thank you!! I’ll get on the ball and start sharing again. Like this cutie who started 1st grade and his cute handwriting had to be captured.

One of my favorite clients and friend turned double digits this weekend! He’s such a sweet boy with the most beautiful blue eyes. I hope he had a fabulous birthday! #frederickphotographer #birthdayportraits

Happy National Maryland Day! Yup, that’s a thing! We have lived in Maryland for 6 years and we love it! There is so much to do. The seasons are beautiful from Cherry Blossoms, to steaming summers, colorful autumns, and 2 week no school snow storms. And have you seen the Maryland flag? It’s one of a kind!

Have you been to Orioles Stadium in Baltimore? I’ve only been on the outside. A client asked me to take pictures of the grounds for a home decor project. It was so fun! Cafes, shops, and the streets were landmarked with places where the baseballs have dropped. My husband has a goal to hit all the baseball stadiums so we need to make a visit here soon.
