Baltimore – an unexpected surprise!

Last week, I was able to hop in the car with my husband and head to Baltimore for less than 24 hours while he worked nearby.  It’s funny, when I think of Baltimore, I automatically think of a city mentioned in a silly musical – because you have to sing about it for anyone to pay attention, right?  I was quite wrong and felt a little foolish when I arrived in Baltimore and was amazed by the stellar architecture, funky culture that exists there, excellent food and local beer….. and I wasn’t even there 24 full hours – I only had the time to walk through about 3 neighborhoods!

Well, I could go on and on about my brief visit to Baltimore, but I will have to visit again before I say any more 🙂  There are 3 recommendations I will make, however….. if you find yourself in Baltimore, you must, must, must go to eat at the Brewer’s Art Restaurant and be sure to order their Artichoke Ravioli with mint pesto sauce – one of my new favorite dishes; seriously, I would make the 4 hour drive just to eat that ravioli!  I would also recommend Langermann’s Restaurant in the Fell’s point neighborhood – their shrimp and grits is excellent (you would think they were a true Southern state) and their local beer on tap is the best I’ve tasted yet!  Noteworthy neighborhoods that I wish to spend more time in?  I would recommend Fell’s Point and Mount Vernon – two of the three I walked through.  Very stunning architecture and cute little European style townhouses.  And of course, if you are new to Baltimore, you should probably walk through the harbor area and visit Federal Hill – just beware of the touristy traps there that could keep you from the rest of the City!

Baltimore, I must say… you were an unexpected surprise!

Killian Comer

Yesterday, my sister-in-law and newest nephew came over and we took some photos of little Killian.  If you look back at previous posts, you will recognize the name from the maternity photos- he arrived on April 16th and is just now over one month old!  Congratulations Patrick and Mandy- you’ve created another adorable little guy 🙂

A Day at the Beach… Milford, CT.

A good friend of mine here in town asked me to take some photos of her in a “new” outfit she had recently acquired… being the wonderful photo enthusiast that she is, she knew the colors would go lovely with our local beach setting- here are some of the images we came up with!

Family Portraits: not-so-traditional style!

This weekend, being that we had some super nice weather outside here in CT, I had the opportunity to photograph my sister and brother-in-law, along with my niece and nephew.  We went to Boothe Park in Stratford, CT and had a great time (or, at least I did 🙂  I hope you all enjoy these photos!

Maternity.

Yesterday was my first opportunity to photograph a mom in her maternity- she is on child number two and happens to be my sister-in-law!  Another baby boy on the way for her and another little nephew for me- we had a stellar time!  This is a little precursor to a package I will be offering very shortly- details are still being cultivated amidst the spinning wheels in my mind, but will surface shortly in a happy little ad 🙂  I thoroughly enjoyed this whole experience and really would like to do more maternity sessions in the near future.  Please contact me if you have any questions or for any current session information and rates.  As always, I hope you enjoy the photos!
