Karson + Colin Expecting // Frederick, Maryland Maternity Photographer

I had the honor of shooting my sis-in-love's maternity portraits yesterday at Rose Hill Manor Park, and I couldn't wait to share a few. Kars and Colin (and baby nephew Pax!), it was an honor and privilege. xoxo.

What A Wonderful Life // 2015 Holiday Card

If you know me, you know I LOVE paper goods and receiving things via snail mail. : ) I'm loving all of the holiday cards we're receiving from friends and family this year! And I'm really happy with how our holiday card turned out; Mpix.com offers some great designs! The coloring was spot on as well (it's a bit discolored on the blog because my scanner isn't the best). For our front image, we used a photo from our maternity/family session with Anna Arpasi last October.

On the back, we used various Instagram photos. Our favorite memories included trips to Sunset Beach, Chapel Hill and California.

The Tucks hope your new year is the best one yet! 


Technically, this is 37 1/2 weeks. Almost at the finish line! I FEEL like this baby boy is going to drop any second now, which is why I had the hubs snap a few photos of me over the weekend. Just for good measure, I also included a b&w one from when I was 37 weeks with Brooklyn. Pretty decently similar... although I think baby boy is slightly bigger. Fun to compare... hair lengths and all. : )


Well, I should say that Kat & Matt's little one is actually already here! I took these maternity photos in Washington, DC a little over a week ago, and THREE DAYS LATER Kat gave birth early to Margot (what an adorable name!). Everyone is happy and healthy, and I'm so glad we got these photos done when we did! I love having these two (three!) in front of my lens. I photographed Kat & Matt's wedding two summers ago, and it was an absolute pleasure to do their maternity session. Kat is a rockstar model and Matt is seriously the nicest, most sincere guy ever. When I would take solo shots of Kat, he'd be off to my side saying things of encouragement like, "Oh Kat, you are so beautiful." Made me tear up! I loved the places the couple picked out for their session: a quaint little street near where they live and the sculpture garden outside the National Gallery of Art. The rink was so beautiful with the twinkle lights -- made for awesome winter photos! And we finished with a few shots inside their apartment. Congrats to the happy parents. Newborn photos to come in a couple weeks...! : )
