woman's bedroom. When it comes to photography however, it means something a little deeper. Boudoir Photography is loving your body and who you are in your skin at this point in your life. It is feeling free and beautiful to be you, for you, and no body else! Our boudoir sessions are classy and more empowering than sexual. We are capturing the art work that your body is, no matter what shape, size, or shade.

Ever since we met Brooke and Patrick, we thought Patrick was just a pro in front of the camera. More comfortable than most grooms, maybe he had experience. He gladly did everything we asked of him with a smile. He never once grumbled about a specific pose, being out in the below-freezing temperatures for their maternity session at Kilgore Falls, or the sweltering heat for their engagement session at Swan Harbor Farm. Through it all, we witnessed Patrick just taking Brooke in like she was the source of everything he needed in life. A bright green leaf soaking in every ounce of sunshine. Happier looking at her than away.
We realized in those moments that Patrick isn’t just a great go-with the flow kind of guy. He is madly, uncontrollably, and unconditionally in love with his wife, Brooke.
After a difficult relationship, Patrick swore he would never do it again. He would keep his heart safe, tucked away in a secret box where no one could find it. Then Brooke came along… As he says, “she immediately changed my mind.” Within two years of meeting the love of his life, they bought a home together, got married, had their first baby boy, celebrated their marriage with family and friends at Mountain Branch in Fallston, MD, and found out that they have another baby on the way!
When he looks at Brooke, whether it be on their wedding day or in the kitchen the morning after a night of no sleep, he looks at her with only adoration. His dream was for their wedding day to be everything Brooke wanted it to be, and he did everything possible to give her the wedding celebration she dreamt of as a little girl. His toast was heartfelt and tear-inducing and showcased how he feels about Brooke and the love surrounding them every. single. day.
Brooke and Patrick… you are a special couple. One that has inspired us and is exactly the reason why we do what we do. We wish you a life full of love, happiness, and lots of babies!
