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! 


Dancemakers Stay the Path Tour was this past weekend in Bethesda, MD and we had an absolute blast!  Out of all the dance competitions and conventions we have been to, I have to say this one is definitely my favorite!! Not only do the girls learn some great dance techniques and ideas that stretch them […]

Little Aryane has the most beautiful nursery in all of Baltimore and it was just perfect for her newborn lifestyle photo session!

Aryane – A Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session ~ Baltimore, MD


It was a very early spring evening, March 9, 2019.  I was bundled in a coat, hat and gloves hiding behind a tree in the woods along a very steep river bank!  This picture below was my view.  I was about to capture a SURPRISE PROPOSAL!! I was so excited I could not contain myself.  […]

Lola – An Early Spring Mini Session


They say rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. I think for these two it certainly was!  The mist and the soft light look were so romantic and made for lots of snuggles and cuddles! Even though the rain presented quite a challenge, we were able to make the most of […]

Once upon a time there lived in a certain village a little country girl, the prettiest creature who was ever seen. Her mother was excessively fond of her; and her grandmother doted on her still more.
