Hey there and welcome to the blog!  I'm Heather, a lover of Chik-Fil-A, the ocean, anything with stripes and all things ballet!  I also happen to be a wedding and family photographer based in the Baltimore, MD area.  This blog is where I share my latest weddings and photo sessions, tips on photography, some of my amateur attempts at home organizing and decorating, some homeschool ideas and just some fun things we want to remember as the ordinary days of family life go by. This blog has become a scrapbook of my children's lives!  Take a look around and you might see my little girls all the way back in 2007, as well as the progression of my photography business since then too!  So glad to have you here and I look forward to chatting with you! 


They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but I don’t think Justin and Spenser are even going to need it!  Surrounded by their closest family and friends, their love was on display throughout the day.  The stunning setting of Rosewood Farms in Elkton, MD was the perfect backdrop for a beautiful day […]

Luke and Kaitlyn were married at the beautiful Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster, PA this past weekend.

The warm and cozy setting with snow on the ground outside gave the perfect atmosphere for friends and family to witness […]

Kaitlyn & Luke – The Cork Factory Hotel Lancaster Wedding


The last time I saw Bradlee, she was just a toddler.  Bradlee’s parents were some of our first friends when my husband’s job transferred us to the beautiful town of Ocala, FL way back in 1994.  Fast forward more than 20 years and I was so thrilled to be honored to be the one to […]

Show It United 2019 I’ve had this little blog of mine waaaay back since 2007.  I started it way back then to document not only my photography journey, but my life in raising our three girls. Sooo much has changed in the 13 years I’ve been documenting my photography here. About a year ago, I […]

A Timberdoodle Review of Candygrams Even though we no longer homeschool, we just love doing product reviews for Timberdoodle.  This game was so pretty and colorful I was drawn right to it.  My girls said it was their favorite part of the game as well – the beautiful colors. Candygrams is basically just a crossword […]

A Baseball Inspired Family Photo Session I met up with the Driscoll family again this year. Liam has grown so much!  The baseball theme they chose was perfect for this stage of life with their sweet boy.   Liam’s broken arm didn’t stop them from moving forward with their photo session. I just love that they […]
