Brookside Gardens Family Photos : Lambert

I used to go to church with the Lambert family.  They are such a sweet couple and their kids are too cute!! 

We met up at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD.  Brookside is such a fun place to shoot!  You can go there 100 times and see something new each time.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session!

Laurel Maryland Portraits : Tailor

Tailor was preparing to send out support letters for her summer missions trip and needed some photos to include, so we met up and did a mini session!   Hopefully we will be doing a full senior session sometime this fall :).  Here are my favorites from her session!

Warsaw New York Family Photos : Merrill

Meet the Merrills!! Greg is my husband's brother.  Greg is married to Jess and they have 3 awesome kids - Josh, Benny and Kaylee.

Greg is a talented plumber and volunteer fireman.  Jess is a talented seamstress (be on the lookout for a handmade quilt this spring appearing in photos!) and one of my dearest friends.  Josh is an amazing pitcher and is a Redskins fan (only one in the family I have been able to sway!).  Benny has won lots of wrestling tournaments and is a die hard Giants fan.  Kaylee is my little princess - if I ever have a daughter, I want her to be just like her!!

It had been a few years since I had taken pictures for them, so while we were visiting for Thanksgiving we decided to update the family photos.  We were originally going to go to a park by their house but on our way there I saw some property (which just happens to belong to Jessica's uncle) with an old general store, a few barns and a broken down bread truck so we decided to shoot there instead.  It was snowing during our shoot and without a doubt the coldest shoot this Maryland girl has ever done.  It was so cold that the snow on the ground kept sticking to the bottom of Kaylee's shoes and at the end she had 3 inch platforms! HA! Despite the cold we got some awesome pictures.  Thank you Merrill family for braving the cold for me! Hope you enjoy them!!

I am available for photo sessions in NY state, as I am in the area several times a year.  Please contact me thru my facebook page ( or my website ( and we will set something up.
