Welcome to Candid Captures' Blog
Meet Jessica. She's a family friend of beautiful Brittany, that I photographed last month. Jessica was eager to capture some photographs before Melanie, baby #2, arrives in February. She text me maternity photo ideas she'd found online and we began gathering our props. We met at Patapsco State Park and got right to work despite the December chill. We checked all the shots off her list and I couldn't be more excited with the shots we captured! May the rest of your pregnancy be as quick and easy as today's shoot!!
The countdown to Christmas has begun and these two munchkins are ready! Meet Dylan and Bryleigh. Their mom is expecting baby #3 and wanted some photos to capture their last Christmas as a team of two. I meet the family at Gaver Farms in Frederick, Maryland. Having never been there, I was immediately impressed with the rolling hills full of Christmas trees. It was the perfect backdrop for this December shoot. Towards the end of our shoot we found this perfect path through two lines of trees that produced the dreamiest of Christmas photo lighting. My heart is smiling looking back at these images!
A few months ago, while my best friend was celebrating her 5th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica, her Momma contacted me to take some secret photographs of Z. She'd made arrangements to visit the fire house and engine number 57. Taryn's grandfather worked on engine 57. The firefighters were so welcoming! They let Z roam around, get in the truck, climb the ladder, and even try on the boots. At the end of our visit Z even received a patch. I loved being a part of this special surprise!!!
Meet Meghan & Mady! They are a dynamic, inseperable mother-daughter duo. Meghan is one of those ladies that must have cloned herself. How can she possibly be this many places in one day? I met these pretties at Irvine Nature Center in Owings Mills, MD. Despite the brisk December weather we took a quick stroll around. Or rather, Meghan and I raced to keep up with Mady. 1, 2, 3.... GO!
Heather and I met in college. We were sorority sisters and fellow elementary ed majors. Somewhere in there she met Andrew and a little while later came Lily. One of the warmest munchkins I've ever met! Despite arriving late due to traffic, Lily greeted me with a giant hug! Heather and I planned to meet at Bear Branch Nature Center in Westminster, a park near the family's home. It was beautiful and the December weather was bearable enough to explore a bit. I can't wait to return and explore everything the place has to offer in the spring!
Follow me, Samantha, and my passion here! I love meeting and capturing your beautiful families!
