::sneakiest peek::

So today I shot the senior photos of my youngest cousin, and now I officially feel old. I took her older sister's senior photos, I've taken her pictures before, three years ago, and she's grown up so much since then that I really can't believe that she's a senior in HIGH SCHOOL. Where has the time gone? (Also: let us all pause and compare the difference that three years has made in my photography. Just. Wow.) Anyway, she looks so freaking beautiful; I had to share just a couple of my favorites from the dozens of good ones.

the wedding of j&e

These two were married in a beach ceremony in Ocean City, and the reception followed at Lighthouse Sound. Every detail of this wedding was delightful, and E coordinated it all amazingly, especially considering she lives three hours away. These two are a blast! I loved hanging with them, meeting their wedding party, and generally having a grand old time. It. Was. Fabulous. But I'll let the pictures tell you.

Look at her eyes! I couldn't stop taking pictures, trying to capture the amazing color.

"want a mic?"
Yes, this would be bathroom karaoke.

don't you just want to hang out with her?
Don't you just want to chill with her? Trust me: you so do. She's awesome.


the kiss
The kiss.

Dancing flower girls!


First dance.

His little son joined them for the end of the first dance. Was awesome.

So I loved his shoes, and totally followed him around all night trying to get a picture of both of our feet. This was the best I could do.

crazy awesome dancing. with chinese lanterns
Now that's what I call dancing.

father daughter dance
This has to be one of my favorite images ever. Look at the emotion in her eyes. Love it.

And look how her dad is just cradling her. It was so precious.


the clubhouse at night
See? pretty people in a pretty place.

the girls
I was totally teasing e that she picked brunette bridesmaids on purpose to make herself stand out more. But seriously: awesome ladies!

the guys
These guys were hilarious.

the party

There was actually a rescue WHILE we were shooting these images. I felt vaguely disrespectful continuing to shoot, but there you go. (Don't worry: everyone was fine.)

::only with laughter can you win::
So lovely.

the wedding of b&l

These two were married 35 years ago, and I had the incredible privilege of photographing the ceremony at which the re-united in marriage. Only their immediate family was in attendance, and it was quiet, gorgeous, and perfect. Afterwards we all slipped down to the beach for a few family photos, and it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

pregnancy pictures!

I met this absolutely gorgeous couple through mutual friends, and we decided to take some pregnancy pictures and final family portraits before the new baby came in nine days. Yes, you read that right. NINE DAYS. This girl looks amazing! She looks better at nine months pregnant than I ever have in my entire life.
So anyway, we started at their house and then headed down to Roaring Point State Park. It is lovely down there, and the threat of rain had cleared out most people, leaving the beach to us. It was absolutely lovely, and we just took pictures until we realized that the soon-to-be big brother was hungry. There are still more, but these were so gorgeous I had to share them.

Aren't they adorable together?

The boys!

On the drive down we found this abandoned house and we had to stop and use it for pictures. Isn't it fabulous?

Um, supermodels much?

Isn't this just a fabulous stairway? Could have spent house just at this place.


Love. This. Shot.

Hard to believe they're days away from child #2. They are so sweet to watch together!

She is so freaking cute.


Um, yes. This is amazing. And I know I took it, but, yeah. Love it.

isn't she just breathtakingly lovely?
And this. This was her idea too--don't you love people who are also photogs?
