In May of 2013, myself and a friend of my fiance's shot Mike and Sara's beautiful wedding at The Elkridge Furnace Inn. My fiance is one of Mike's best friends, and was a groomsman at their wedding. Their wedding was incredible beginning with their ceremony in the pouring rain. They wanted nothing more than to be married outside, and they didn't let the rain stop them! All of the guests followed suit, stood under umbrellas as we listened to their touching and loving vows to each other. These 2 are so in love and we couldn't have been happier for them. They are 2 super sweet and kind people, you can't help but smile when you're around them; it's contagious!
Fast forward 2+ years later, and they're expecting their first child! Their announcement was a photo of them holding the sonogram image, along with each holding a cute Star Wars book; one titled Darth Vader and Son, the other titled Vader's Little Princess. They found out it's a princess, and I was so excited when they asked me to do their maternity session. One of the first things I asked her to bring was the Vader's Little Princess book, followed by her Over the Moon sweater. They're both big Ohio State fans, and at her shower they got 2 adorable Ohio State onesies which she also brought. We went to historic Havre de Grace last weekend, took some photos on the promenade and at the very bench where Mike proposed to Sara which was really cute. After that we walked back on the promenade, made a couple more stops along the way, then finished up at the lighthouse. These 2 are so much fun to work with and were nothing but smiles and laughter. Between shooting images, walking around and catching up, we were out there for almost 3 hours! The weather was fantastic and helped to make it a perfect afternoon turned evening for these 2 and their little bundle of joy. Only 3 more weeks until she comes! Congrats again Mike & Sara, you guys will be great parents!
