Spring Mini Sessions- Southern Maryland Photographer

Spring Mini Sessions

Last year, I offered mini sessions in the fall. They were a huge hit, so we decided to offer spring ones this year. We will likely offer them again this fall too, but what better way to bring in spring than to enjoy the warmer weather and get back out there shooting!  I am so excited to see all of you!

Welcoming Benjamin- Our new little bundle|personal

Welcoming Benjamin


If you had told me back when I was younger that I would be the mom of TWO boys and married to my high school sweetheart, I don’t know that I would have believed you.  Life has been incredibly sweet as of late and we welcomed Benjamin Mark McMahon on March 2nd at 2:20pm.  Showing up his brother, he weighed in at 9lbs 8oz and 21.5in long. This boy made pregnancy a little bit more difficult than mine with Luke (our 2.5 yr old) but the delivery was much quicker and for that, I am thankful.

Ben (as we plan to call him) has dark brown hair like me and what looks to be blue eyes like his daddy and brother. We are excited to see if his hair lightens to be blonde like Luke’s too or if it stays brown like mine. So far, he’s been a pretty easy and content baby. He sleeps great and often has to be woken up to eat, otherwise he’d sleep for the whole night I think.  He makes lots of little grunt noises and is very alert and curious. We are so, so in love and we feel so complete. I am beyond excited to see what the future holds with two boys and I know my husband is over the moon to be able to envision taking them camping, playing sports, and having just an overall adventure with these two guys we have!

I will be sharing our birth photos soon once I get them from the photographer, and with that, I will share the birth story and more newborn photos. In the meantime, enjoy these few as a little sneak and intro to our sweet new guy.

This was so funny the other day. I was in the kitchen grabbing breakfast and I noticed Luke “camped out” in front of the swing where Ben was. How cute is this?

Alexandria VA photographer- Dave and Amanda’s Engagement Session!

Old town Alexandria VA photographer

There are just some couples that when you meet, you feel like old friends. I immediately felt like that with Dave and Amanda when we met for their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.  It was the warmest day of the weekend, so we got pretty darn lucky!

These two made it so easy for me. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are funny and so sweet together and with me. Their new little buddy, Oliver joined in on some of the fun towards the end of the session and basically stole the show…..sorry, guys :)

I am overjoyed to have met these two and to be photographing their wedding in Charlottesville next August, they really are just the sweetest couple and I am so lucky to be their photographer.  Enjoy these warm and cozy engagement photos of the beautiful Amanda and Dave and be sure to leave them love in the comments!
