This session is a little late to be blogged but better late than never right? Right. Emily is a local yogi, and owner of the brand new True Moon Yoga Studio in Annapolis! She is one bad ass lady. After we took the mandatory ‘head shots’, we jumped right into the real purpose of the […]

The 13+ Business Tools I Use, And Why You Should Use Them Too

Peggy + Jason had an incredibly sweet, and intimate wedding at the courthouse in downtown Annapolis, followed by portraits at St. Johns College and Maryland Ave. How much more ‘Annapolis’ could you get?? I guess, throw in an anchor and a photo bomb from a midshipmen and that would be as ‘Annapolis’ as you could […]

Kate And Gray Photo: Entrepreneur Session

Okay…so ‘why was this a misadventure?’ you may be asking yourself. This shoot started out on a good note: easy conversation the whole drive towards Great Falls. The problem? We never found Great Falls. Sure…eventually we found part of it, but not really. But let me back up. I texted Mary, a local model and […]

Mary + Hein’s Great Falls Misadventure

It was an inquiry request from someone named Andrew; and Andrew was looking for someone to take photos of him proposing to his then-girlfriend, Anna. I quickly (sorry professor) logged into my email, read over the details, and responded to Andrew. His plan […]
