Our Family Photos

As I get ready to have a new little girl join our family, one of my common thoughts has been about how different the dynamic will be between the family we've known for the past two and a half years. Owen gets all the attention and there is just something about having a little boy that has totally stolen my heart. I really wanted to get some photos of just the three of us to have as a reminder of this sweet time we got to share together. My amazing sister came over a few weekends ago and spent the afternoon with us snapping photos and somehow managing to have Owen enjoy himself. I'm so grateful that we made it happen and am so happy with the sweetness of these photos. They mean so much to me already! We couldn't be more excited to add another little one to our family and I can't wait to see what our next set of family photos will look like.

Thanks so much to Ashley for the photos!!

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - We're just skipping the weeks I missed:) I love you even though I'm terribly unorganized when it comes to these kinds of things. Anyways, Auntie Ashley took some family photos of us, so we got all snazzed up and told you to go stand on a little leaf. You walked right over, stood there with a sweet face and then folded your hands up so perfectly. You, my son, are a natural.

Field and Foundry Baltimore Dinner

Horace and I were invited by the lovely ladies of Field & Foundry for a dinner celebrating collaboration and creatives in the Baltimore area. We were so flattered to be included in this great mix of fun and like-minded people and really couldn't believe we got to spend our Saturday munching on wild caught salmon and perfect crab cakes. 
Field & Foundry is made up of Laicie of A Thousand Threads and Melissa Hope in collaboration with Bing, as a way to bring creatives in the MD/VA/DC area together to enjoy a meal together and connect. The Baltimore dinner took place at The Chicken Box, a renovated shared space in the Station North district. It started with cheeses, salmon and bread, along with the most perfect apple cider as everyone gathered together. Once everyone was there, Laicie led a little workshop on how to make bitters and we all created our own little bottles to take with us along with recipes on how to make our own bitters at home.

We all sat down for an incredible dinner, prepared by Laicie's husband Mark, including crab cakes, more incredible bread, pasta and the most incredible Kale Salad with Fig and Prosciutto (get the recipe on A Thousand Threads!). As we ate, we were treated to a talk by Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr, the creatives behind Idiots Books, all about collaboration. We ended the evening with a game of pictionary telephone in an effort to practice the collaborative spirit Matthew and Robbi described. Needless to say, it was such an enjoyable, relaxing evening and we were so thankful and happy to be a part of it. 

Thanks to Field & Foundry and Bing for the wonderful evening!

Isn't this calligraphy gorgeous? All of the beautiful wording was created and hand lettered by the always sweet Lindsay of Shrimp Salad Circus:)

Liz + Casey | Cape May Film Wedding

This day was a light and breezy as it looks. A Bride, a Groom, a Maid of Honor and a Best Man on a Cape May beach with family and friends. No rushing, no hi-jinks. Just a bunch of people getting together to celebrate these two people full of joy and smiles. Liz and Casey spent the morning relaxing and getting ready with their close friends nearby and finally met up, filled with more excitement than I've pretty much every seen two people contain. Off flew Liz's TOMS as she hopped and skipped towards Casey on the beach and I don't think they ever went back on her feet. They donned leis at the ceremony and relaxed on the wrap around porch at the reception, dancing after dark with the same energy they held throughout the day. 

Cue Little Joy and scroll through these photos of Liz and Casey's Cape May wedding to transport yourself back to when it was summer.

*This was our first film wedding and we have to say we loved getting the opportunity to shoot film for such a special event. If you or anyone you know is interested in our Fine Art Wedding Photography package, get in touch with us at horaceandmaephotography@gmail.com for more info!!*

Film developed and scanned by the amazing Richard Photo Lab. I had heard that they were the cream of the crop and of course I wanted to guarantee that my film would be handled by the best. We got all of our scans back within a week and couldn't have asked for better service let alone the help the gave to our film. Its hard to find a good trustworthy lab, but Richard's Photo Lab is as close to a guarantee as you can get with film.
