Grad Gift :)

These pics are a few weeks old, but I finally got a chance to post a few snapshots of my brother's graduation gift that Matt & I gave him. I really didn't want to just give him cash, so I decided it would be funnier, more annoying, and hilarious to fill his bedroom at home with over 140 maroon & orange balloons (100 with $1 bills in them!)
I figured also that he could either get really annoyed at me for filling his room or he would laugh & love it. The later occurred, and I think he actually enjoyed spending time popping all of them & collecting his gift :)
I had this idea for a while, and I'm really glad I didn't chicken out. It was a blast filling them all up with mom (and help from dad's air compressor) and only took about 2 hours! The pups weren't sure what to think of all the balloons, but Ruger & Porthos finally decided to check it all out, although we weren't able to get a picture of them in the room!
I will plan to hide all of my spare keys to my house from my brother if and when I ever have another big event happen in my life ;)

Windisch Family Portraits

Gail & Jerod have the perfect place to take family portraits. We took them at their farm house just down the road from my parent's house! Their children were so great to work with & smiled, even despite the rain we were dodging to get the photos taken outside! I just LOVE the mommy/daughter, daddy/son images...they are so special! :)
I think you guys will really like these photos...these are some more of my favorites that I didn't get a chance to post on Facebook for you yet! Hope you like them!

Schaffer Family Portraits

What a great family! Sunday morning, I photographed previous wedding clients- Stacey, Brandon, and their adorable daughter, Chloe, at Loy's Station Covered Bridge near Thurmont, MD. Chloe kept me busy, running around the playground and bribing me (I got her to smile only after I ran across the playground bridge following her!) We also got their yellow lab, Koby in a few shots as well as Stacey's sister, Kellee, who graduated a few hours after the photos were taken. (Congrats, Kellee!) Even though the weather threatened our photos, we were still able to get some great images that I hope they will treasure for years!

Baby Natalie

Saturday I had my first newborn baby photo shoot capturing the cuteness of baby Natalie. It was so cool to be taking photos of past clients and their new family addition. Natalie was only 11 days old and sweet as can be. She was like an angel...
Rebekah & Alex, you are blessed with a gorgeous baby girl, and I'm so thankful I was able to take some photos of her this weekend. I hope you will love the photos!

The Countdown has Begun :)

I realized today is a random day to start counting down, but we are 3 weeks & 2 days away from our much needed vacation to HAWAII!!! The full 6 pack will be together again very soon & we can't wait to spend some time relaxing. It's going to be an amazing trip :) This picture above is from last weekend when we spent the day at Matt & rest of the Washington College alumni.
Oh, and the Ruger photo is not random...Today, Ruger is 9 months old! (From our guess when he was born) So I sang Happy Birthday to him only for him to stare at me and wag his tail because his mom was acting silly & giving him extra treats. I don't think he minded at all, and I think he wishes he had a birthday celebration every day. I figured no one would mind seeing another photo of a cute puppy dog, right?!?
