Welcome to Candid Captures' Blog
Last weekend I packed up my gear and headed up 895 to Antrim 1844 in Taneytown, MD. This 24-acre estate is renowned for its superb cuisine and upscale accommodations. Even in the sparse and chilly month of March the grounds offered a beautiful backdrop for this sweet couple patiently awaiting, baby #2. A little girl they plan to name Daisy! Katie and Pete contacted me off a recommendation from a friend and I'm SO GLAD they did. I loved the location they selected and they were an absolute delight to chat with. Katie was my favorite kind of client! She came prepared with ideas and props, making our session fun and hopefully, exactly what she wanted.
Back in November, before ole' man winter arrived, I drove to Owings Mills and met the nicest, cutest couple. They're both teachers and were expecting their first child. Mom had sent me inspiration prior to our shoot, which I love! So when I arrived we got right to work. We captured baby girl's nursery, some photos around the house, and even some with their fur-child, Cannon. So, I know I'm super delayed... but I loved meeting these two & want to send a huge congratulations!
Until this year, I'd taught at an elementary school in Baltimore County that's staff was so close and strolled to the same universal vision, they became family. This beautiful momma-to-be is a member of that family. Meet Angela and Matt. A fun-loving, bar hopping, beach going, Raven rooting Maryland couple. In just three short weeks their family will be growing by 2 feet. Girl, boy? Who knows! They've decided to wait. And while the anticipation kills me, I think it's absolutely perfect! I caught up with Ang and Matt at Federal Hill Park downtown on a warm, sunny Saturday afternoon.
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!!
This weekend I had the privilege of spending a portion of my afternoon with two of the sweetest people! Meet Nicole and Tony. They're patiently awaiting their first child together. A baby girl named Alora Juliet. The couple and their lovable four legged friends met me at a park close to their home outside of Baltimore where we soaked up the October sunshine and captured these amazing moments!
Follow me, Samantha, and my passion here! I love meeting and capturing your beautiful families!
