Nick + Anne + Alexina

Pin It

It's hard to believe that Anne and Nick have been married two years already!  Their wedding day was so beautiful, so vibrant, and so them!  And as luck would have it, they were expecting their first child…due on their 2nd anniversary!  However, their sweet baby girl just couldn't wait that long to see the world and meet her amazing parents!  And now Miss Alexina Marie is 2 months old!  Don't you love her name? It's a family name that Anne has been longing to use if she were to ever have a little girl!  Anne and Nick, you are wonderfully sweet and caring parents.  I love how smitten you are with your precious daughter, and how in love the two of you are, making for one strong family!  As we were getting some portraits of Alexina in the studio, I told them both that I hear their first dance song all the time and always think of their special day.  And Anne told me that now they're even better together with Alexina!  So sweet!  This adorable family lives in Baltimore, and it was such a great honor to meet little Alexina and to photograph them together as a family!  Nick, Anne, and Alexina, it was so wonderful to see you!  It makes me so happy to see you both - proud, loving parents who are madly in love with each other.  No wonder Alexina is such a happy little girl!  And I'm smitten with her too!  Congratulations and enjoy the wild, crazy, totally amazing journey that is parenthood!  Family and friends can view their entire online gallery here - Coming Soon!

 Isn't she the cutest little ladybug?!

One of Anne's friends gifted the hand-made ladybug hat and cover to her!

She kept her eyes on Mommy and Daddy!  Love her sweet little smile!

After being bright-eyed, she decided to take a little snooze.
And we were able to capture this adorable portrait!  A favorite!

She has the cutest little feet!  

Dear Grandma, 
Thank you for letting me borrow your pearls for my photo shoot!
Alexina   ;)

 Another favorite!

Ohhh, Alexina Marie!  You are beyond adorable!

After a wardrobe change for Alexina, we headed outdoors into the afternoon sunshine for some family portraits.  Watching Anne and Nick snuggle and cuddle with their baby girl was so much fun!


Anne, you are a beautiful mother!  I don't think you or Nick stopped smiling all afternoon!

Polka-dots and tiny toes!  

One proud father!  

Couldn't leave out their sneak peek on Facebook, which also happens to be a favorite!

Love this!!!

Daddy's little girl!

Alexina, you are loved by these two beyond measure!  

Nick, Anne, and Alexina, thank you so much for traveling from Baltimore and for sharing your afternoon with me!  I just adore you guys!  Your baby girl is perfect and sweet and full of joy!  Congratulations!!!  Cannot wait to see you all again soon!

Remington | 19 months

Pin It

It seems like just yesterday, I was wondering when our little guy would be sitting up, crawling, taking his first steps, and now he loves to run and climb any chance he gets!  Remington is almost 21 months old, and we love him more than we could have ever imagined!  I took these photos at 19 months, and just love all the expressions he let me capture! (I've decided that I'll convert his age to years once he turns 2!) It can be a challenge to get photos of him, as he's taken quite an interest in my camera these days!  And he may have left some of his little fingerprints on my lens during our session… So with some help from Grandma and Grandpa (Pa-Pa!), I got some of those smiles and laughs (and serious faces too!) that melt my heart each and every day.  We started in the studio before heading outside later in the day, after a good nap, of course! ;)  And now for a few favorites!

Oh this face! This face!  I don't know how many times a day I kiss his little cheeks!
One of my favorites!

Remington loves to climb!  And I adore his toes, all 10 of them!  

I just love his little blue jeans and crazy curls!   

Hi Remington!

He's been working on teeth # 13-16!  And he's been a little trooper through it too!

It was a beautiful, breezy day, so we ventured outside for a few portraits in one of my favorite spots.
A game of ladder peek-a-boo!

It was one of those days when one of his absolute favorite toys, 'Raffe, 
had to be in his hands at all times.  

Love this!

Remington, thank you for being my little sweetheart!  I love you soooo much!  Daddy and I are so lucky, beyond blessed, and oh so incredibly grateful to call you our son!
And a huge thank you to my parents for singing silly songs during his session! Love you both!
