As the crazy rhythm of the past 3 months begins to slow down a bit, I want to take a moment to give a major shout-out to all of my couples. I can’t tell you the number of times this season that I have told my husband how much I truly enjoy my clients, and how blessed I feel to get to work with them to document all kinds of important milestones in their lives. I have worked with such good people, people that I want to bring home and introduce to my family, people that welcome me into their worlds and make me feel right at home. Healy and Alexey are absolutely two of those people. I loved photographing them tie the knot a few years ago (you can see their wedding here) and I couldn’t wait to meet their little Stella. Talk about a cool kid! She is full of smiles and spunk, and was a blast to run after throughout her first birthday party up in Baltimore, MD. Following are my favorites from the Stellabration: enjoy!
