Baby G | Lancaster Adoption Photographer

The H Family has been through a roller coaster of a ride the last few years as they dreamed of adopting and then had to walk through a very long adoption process…but in the end this story ends happily ever after for this beautiful family. In the words of Moma H: “After waiting almost two long years and having a roller-coaster of near matches, we were overjoyed when we were chosen by our birth mother to adopt our beautiful baby girl through a local agency. We fell in love with our baby girl from the first moment we held her in our arms.”

I had the privilege to do a Red Thread Session when Miss G was only 8 days old and then we recently celebrated her one year birthday and adoption finalization with a follow up session a few months back. What a joy is has been to journey and document with this family through their adoption. Adoption is certainly not for the faint of heart. Patience, endurance, fear, worry and “what ifs” are just a few of the things that adoptive families have to walk through. It can be draining (I can personally relate to this as my hubby and I are in the process of an adoption also!) But, one thing I have LOVED about photographing so many Red Thread Sessions lately is the hope and joy it gives us…the hope to persevere and to press on and the joy to unconditionally love. It gets me super excited to meet our lil babe soon :)

So, meet Miss G…she is beautiful as can be.

Laura & Bill | Hunt Valley Wedding Photographer

I really enjoy photographing engagement sessions for my couples, mostly because they are a great way for me to get a feel for their personalities and hearts prior to the wedding. What fun it is, then, to see their personalities come to life during their big day! Three words that I would use to describe Laura and Bill are sweet natured, genuine and authentic. And these three things certainly came through in their wedding as well. It was a a day filled with joy, sweet intimate moments, happiness and lots of Baltimore Orioles! These two are HUGE fans and they made sure to incorporate some serious Baltimore Birds decor; a perfect compliment to their sweet natured personalities!

Madison & Louis | Lancaster Engagement Photographer

It was a beautiful early spring morning when I finally got to meet these two at Lancaster County Park for their engagement session. I get a little nervous when clients book with me for a wedding without having met me in person. ‘What if they don’t like me!?’ is always my biggest fear ;) As soon as I was greeted by their huge smiles I knew there was no reason to fret at all! Easy going and laid back are two words that describe these two. Thanks to these wonderful traits it made for a great opportunity for me to do my thing and get creative with what I was seeing in my mind for a final product. I just love how the images came to life and show the sweet love that these two share.

Besides being a little slosh-y and wet from the previous night’s rain, we were able to enjoy the gorgeous light and colors that always come with spring time at the park. We hit the blossoms at just the right time. Booyah! We couldn’t have asked for anything better and I look forward to celebrating with them this coming autumn  with some more gorgeous colors and light. October can’t come soon enough and I’m thrilled they chose us to be their photographers. Thanks for such a fun and relaxing morning Madison and Louis!
