Chad & Courtney’s wedding will be this summer in Hagerstown, MD, so I met up with them for lovely engagement session at City Park where they had their first kiss.

Everyone knows how much I love photographing newborns, but when I get the opportunity to photograph the newborns of friends, I get even more giddy! Especially when the friend is expecting twins!!! Photographing multiples may be a ton of work, but I enjoy every second I get to spend with these little miracles as well as every minute of editing afterwards. Justine & Tim have two sweet little boys, and recently were excited to bring in another little boy into the world. Heartbreakingly, Baby Alexander passed away before he had a chance to experience the world. It was a tragic loss, that brings tears to my eyes every time I think of him. Justine has honored him in so many creative ways, including a special mandala project that many people participated in (including Juniper & I). When I found out that she was pregnant again, I was so happy to know she was not only going to have one but TWO rainbow babies! She is one of the most creative people that I know, and she makes so many AMAZING pieces of art, including this rainbow quilt that I knew must be incorporated in the twins’ newborn shoot. Check out all her amazing eco-friendly pieces at Potomac River Goods!

Since they were born near Easter, Justine had these adorable newborn bunny props to put the boys in. The cuteness is overwhelming!

Tim is the guitarist for Clutch, so of course we had to do some pictures in one of his guitar cases. Speaking of Clutch, do you know they are headlining the Earth Rocker Festival at Shiley Acres next month before they head off to Europe? Jon & I are having a rare date night to go since it’s so close to home, and you should too!

Love all those little new baby parts, even the little stink eye!

When I do on location newborn portraits in clients’ homes, I like to get lifestyle images as well. Those little moments of feeding, changing and chaos are soon forgotten, so it’s nice to have those moments documented. Check out their cat spying on us!

When I posted Sam & Amanda’s wedding post, I totally remembered that I never posted their gorgeous fall engagement session outside of Winchester, VA! The leaves were almost at their peak on this chilly day which made for a great background for their engagement photos.

Instead of showcasing my favorite engagement pictures from their portrait session, I’m going to show you their favorite images that they chose for their engagement album! This book turned out beautifully! Here are the album spreads starting with the super cute cover.

The following images are what their album looked like if you opened the book and laid the pages flat.

What a perfect ending image to use on the back cover:

These engagement albums make the perfect addition to a living room coffee table for guests to browse during get togethers, and they are light enough to easily transport to the parents’, the office or to your engagement party.
