Gorgeous weather and more mini-peeks!













Phew, here is a little snippet of last Saturday’s mini-sessions at McDonogh! What a bunch of precious kiddos! I have so many favorites … it’s just impossible to narrow it down to just a couple. Everyone was so wonderful, the campus was breathtaking and seriously, the weather was totally perfect! I couldn’t have asked for anything better – I really enjoyed myself … such an awesome way for me to spend the weekend.
I also got to re-live my high school days … LOL. So super strange to be walking around the sidewalks and through the buildings of the school I called home for four years (a LONG time ago!). All of the sounds and smells are exactly the same … it’s amazing what you remember and how those memories can really “take you back.” I am definitely reminded of how stunning the campus is too – I will definitely be doing mini-sessions there again!
I am officially finished with Saturday’s images – all digital files will be available tomorrow! Unless we discussed a pick-up, I’m heading to the post office tomorrow 🙂 THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to all of the families that met up with me! I am beyond thrilled with our results, I hope you love your portraits as much as I do!

A Very Special Occasion {Owings Mills Family Photographer}









I was REALLY looking forward to this session! Mom & I were classmates at McDonogh, so it seemed like a perfect location to photograph their session. S & A are also celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they got married at McDonogh (another perfect reason to hold the session there!). The campus is insanely beautiful all day, every day – I was so excited to go back for a mini-visit!
Compared to our session last year, we definitely had our hands full this time! 1-1/2 year olds are tough by themselves, but when you add in 4 other family members, it can get pretty interesting. I will say though – both of the older sisters have an amazing record-setting amount of patience. As usual, they did everything I asked and then sat and held their positions as we attempted to coax little sis into posing for us. Everyone kept their sense of humor and we laughed … a lot. LOL.
Two and a half hours and almost an entire memory card later, there are tons of awesome images to work through. I just couldn’t narrow the peek down to my usual 5-6 images, so I posted more 🙂 This is a special occasion for a very special family, so enjoy browsing through some of my favorites so far. Happy Anniversary, I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
