Family and Maternity Portraits

Garrett County MD Portrait Photographer

I am unhappy to report that I did not meet my blogging goal for the off-season. I wanted to blog every wedding and every portrait session that still needed blogged from late 2014 and early 2015 before my busy season started for this year, but I didn’t make it. BUT I am happy to report that I’ve made great strides in my efforts! I’ve blogged more than I ever have in a few weeks time and have a solid blogging schedule set for the next few weeks to keep things going! I strongly believe that blogging and sharing will help my business to continue to grow, so I’m going to keep on truckin’! So here’s two more portrait sessions for you! Both took place in the beautiful Garrett County, MD and both took place in the middle of fall. First, the T family! I took pictures for them a few years ago when Miss Gabbie was much younger, so it was nice to reunite. We met at the Spruce Forest Artisan Village in Grantsville, MD because the family loves dining at the neighboring restaurant and just generally enjoys the area. It was after their session that I discovered what a wonderful session location the village makes!

You never know what kind of poses and smiles you’re going to get from a five-year old!

Gabbie wasn’t a huge fan of smiling and looking at the camera the whole time, so I asked her to sit with mom and dad and count the leaves on the ground. Great distraction! 🙂

When there are kids involved in fall portraits, throwing leaves is a must!

The Casselman Bridge sits right next to the village, so we were able to hit two great local spots!

Gabbie being Gabbie. 🙂 And letting me know that she was done!

Next up is Miss Tessa! I knew she was going to be an awesome client from the minute she inquired. She wrote well in her emails, she was excited and she shared some personal things. I felt like I knew her so well so early in the process and I appreciated her spunkiness. 🙂 I felt badly that it was so cold for her morning maternity session, but after she shared that she and her husband enjoy the cold and snow, I thought “How perfect!” We met at the BEAUTIFUL Swallow Falls State Park in Garrett County and had the whole forest to ourselves…

This shot was actually an accident…I hit the shutter too soon! But I like the way it turned out. 🙂

And as we started shooting, the snow began to fall! We were both excited!

The green and somewhat barren backdrop of the forest in mid-fall paired with the fluffy white snow fall…it was like a dream!

Oh and Tessa’s hair…so cool! I think she was my first non-traditional hair color client…and it fit her wonderfully! And added some spunk to these portraits. 🙂

Tessa is so good at the soft smile and the model look! I was jealous because I can’t do either!

I say it a lot and I’ll say it again…Garrett County is so beautiful in the fall! Don’t you agree!?! And so are my clients. 🙂
