Phoenix and Sarah

Leaves are changing here in Baltimore. The air is crisp, the days are shorter, our breath turns to vapor with every sigh, and boots have officially replaced loafers.

And here is Sarah and Phoenix; a little piece of sunshine in Reservoir Hill.
There is seriously nothing quite like a dog and their person. It is a bond so deep and so often misunderstood, although it would be hard for anyone to mistake that these two are anything but thick as thieves. 

Loved taking your portraits, Phoenix - you sweet, old soul.

I met with Raquel and Matt originally while she was still pregnant. We got together at a small bakery / cafe on O'Donnell Square and got to know one another over cups of coffee and the intoxicating smell of sugar and fried dough resting in the air.

Can I just say? These two are absolutely precious (PRECIOUS). Their giddy smiles of anticipation for baby number one were incredibly sweet and contagious. We were originally planning on a maternity shoot, but it unfortunately fell through. So I was beyond delighted then when they contacted me two weeks after their little guy arrived - just in time for newborn photos for the holidays.

World, meet Marcos.

This little family literally brought a tear to my eye with their tenderness toward one another. I'm not always a sappy person - but to be fair: they sat in the crisp fall leaves as the sun was setting and casting a warm glow over their faces. They smiled at one another with their little boy bundled in their arms and just as I began to click photos, Matt leaned toward his bride, whispering "I love you so much" over and over.

I know. Tear jerker.

Thank you so much, Matt and Raquel, for allowing me to be a part of your first family photos. I'm truly honored!
