One of the very best parts of what I do is watching the families and the children that I photograph grow and change. Lizz has been trusting me to capture her family photos for 7 years now. Which means I’ve been watching, and documenting, her sweet girls, Bella and Natalie, as they grew from toddlers into young women. And I’ve watched the love that Lizz and Richard share and shower on their girls help make them into the sweet and confident ladies that they are right now . . .

Maria, Mike, Michael and William have been coming to see me at the Christmas tree farm for the last few years, and it’s been so fun watching the boys grow. This year, they decided to try something different and they met me, with their sweet labradoodle, Teddy, for their family photo session on a windy but warm evening in early November, at a park in Annapolis, Maryland.

Lizz, Richard, Bella and Natalie have been coming to me for family photo sessions since the very beginning of my photography journey and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to document their lives. The girls are so full of life and joy that happiness fills anyone in their presence. The adoration that they have for their mom and dad is reflected right back to them; you can see the love in the whole family’s eyes . . .

Throughout these years that the Aviles family has given me the honor of taking their photos, we’ve done family sessions at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, and multiple beach family photo sessions in Ocean City, Maryland. This year, they decided to capture their family moments at their family home in northern Virginia. If you’re familiar with my photography, or have spoken to me about photo sessions, you may know that your family home is my favorite place to capture family photos and this session did not disappoint . . .

What a year. Whether the year was good or bad or a combination of the two (the most likely scenario), I think one word can describe it for us all, it was certainly memorable. I don’t think I need to recap the world events for anyone. You lived them, you know. But I want to recap my year and reflect back on all of the things that I have to be grateful for . . .

It was such a pleasure to be able to capture so many joy filled moments at Friendship Trees Farm & Christmas Shop in Friendship, Maryland this year. I was overwhelmed by the response when I started offering these this year and truly enjoyed my time with every family that came out.

The highlight of our time together was when we decided to put half of the family members on other’s shoulders. I imagined the kids going up on shoulders but had not imagined that Michael (Bubba) would be putting Bonnie (Bubbie) on his shoulders . . .

Melissa’s birthday is November 7th and she thought that family photos at her home in Annapolis, Maryland, would be the perfect way to wrap up her birthday weekend and to celebrate herself and her family. And she felt overdue for family photos, not having had them done since sweet Holly (who is 20 months old) was born!

Megan and John have such a beautiful home on the water in Severna Park, that it’s no wonder they wanted to capture some memories there. This time in their lives was especially important to them to document, as they are looking at a potential relocation and they’ve raised their two sweet little girls in this home.
