Family Time

We love babies, and big sisters who love their little brothers have a special place in our hearts. This adorable family enjoyed a quiet walk followed by some splashing in the sun-warmed bay. A perfect evening and an even more perfect family.

Making Sunshine

The trick with outdoor photography is not actually the weather. It's the family. This adorable family braved a drizzly afternoon to capture these magical shots. They enjoyed seeing their little boy explore the nature at Terrapin Park and giggle at our silly camera. Dashing between the raindrops, we found the sunshine in their smiles and joy.
