Barry Family at Quiet Waters Park

The Barry family, what can I say? They were simply perfect. When Bria first reached out to me a few months ago, she had no idea I started a photography business. (Note to self, step up on the marketing.) The back story here is that, as a student working my way through college, I worked at The Center for Women in Technology at UMBC, my alma mater, and Bria was the Director of University Initiatives for the center. It was such a pleasant surprise to hear from her after so long (goodness, 2009!) and I was so touched that she wanted me to take photos for her! They have a little girl arriving in September and wanted to capture their little family before baby #2 greets the world. Daddy Barry is surrounded by the ladies and I am 100% positive this guy wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

I met up with them at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD. Annapolis isn’t quite that close to me so there was no chance of location scouting ahead of time – except online. Haha! But as you can see below, with a kiss of leftover golden hour sunlight, a bit of shade, and beautiful weather, we were good to go! I hope I get to explore more of that park one day, it was absolutely a dream shooting there. And their little one? The sweetest giggling child! *heart eyes*

To the Barry family, I hope you treasure these images forever. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me to capture these moments for you. <3 September can’t come soon enough!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and vision in the incredibly beautiful photos of my son, Matt Barry, Bria and Charlotte. You captured the essence of this expanding family : Love, Joy, Delight!

    1. Nancy, I am so touched with your words – thank you from the bottom of my heart! <3 It was such a delight to photograph your son, Bria, Charlotte, and BabyBump2 together. Matt was quite the gentleman during the session (he offered to carry my stuff around in addition to theirs) and I could see how much he loves the ladies of his family!
