Sunflowers in Southern Maryland

With the arrival of my little muse in November of 2020, I finally have the perfect excuse to fulfill all my photography dreams. I’m much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, and my husband doesn’t really “get” artsy photos, so my daughter is the perfect subject. One thing I’ve always wanted […]

Burnside Farms Tulip Fields

Burnside Farms Tulip Fields

Although the weather doesn’t always seem to agree, spring is here in the DMV. We’ve had several weeks of beautiful blue sky days with highs above 70, and then suddenly rain, cold, and near-freezing temperatures. Just before this latest cold snap, we took a trip down to Nokesville, Virginia to explore Burnside Farms tulip fields. […]

Peak Bloom 2022

Peak bloom 2022 is happening now! I know I just wrote about the DC cherry blossoms a few weeks ago, but I’m ridiculously excited to share some photos from this year. It’s been four years since I really shot these blooms and they did not disappoint. We ended up going at sunrise this past Sunday […]

Hyper Kidz Columbia

Hyper Kids Columbia

This past weekend the Annapolis area was hit with what meteorologists call a “bomb cyclone” snowstorm. I’m not entirely sure what that means in the technical sense, but basically, it got unnecessarily cold and rainy for two days. Of course, this nonsense hit on the weekend. With a very active 16-month-old stuck inside, we knew […]

Baby Girl’s First Birthday

Last week Friday our girl turned one! I can’t believe we already celebrated our baby girl’s first birthday. It seems like just yesterday I was 100 months pregnant. This year seems to have flown by. Having a baby in the middle of a pandemic is a wild ride but I wouldn’t trade her for anything. […]

Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park

Fall is the best time of year in the DMV. Winter is wet and gross, spring is the attack of pollen, and summer gets so hot and humid it’s nearly unlivable. Just when you’re at your wits end the temperature finally drops and the humidity breaks and you’re suddenly reminded why you live here in […]

Mount Olivet Cemetery

Mount Olivet Cemetery

For anyone who’s been around this blog for any amount of time, you know I’m not a big history person. That is absolutely Sean’s domain. Occasionally, I will begrudgingly visit a museum just to make him happy. But it’s really not my thing. However, one aspect of history I do enjoy is old historic cemeteries. […]

Fall Fun at Baugher’s Orchard and Farm

Fall Fun at Baugher's Orchards and Farm

I’ll go ahead and say it: fall is the best time of year. I love summer wholeheartedly but after three months of scorching weather in the Mid-Atlantic, it’s easy to yearn for cooler temps and relief from the overbearing humidity. Plus all the best things happen in the fall: the return of pumpkin spice lattes, […]

Bevreti Hike

One thing Sean and I love to do, but don’t do nearly enough, is hiking. I’m not sure exactly why we are bad at practicing one of our favorite pastimes – perhaps we are inherently lazy, or maybe it’s sheer exhaustion from a long week of work – but this past weekend after a rather […]
