Hi, I'm mandi.
Welcome to the Chesapeake Charm blog, a journal about recent sessions and maybe a little bit of behind the scenes, too!.

Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

Well this session was something new for me! I’ve decided to start taking on a new type of session – Lifestyle Newborn Photography!  So many of my friends and past Chesapeake Charm Photography brides are growing their families – and I’m so excited to be able to capture these exciting memories for them.

The Wong family was so sweet to graciously welcome me into their beautiful Baltimore home and allow me to photograph the arrival of their second addition – baby Gavin! It seems like just yesterday we were running around Hampton Mansion taking maternity photos! You can see those portraits here.

Gavin is such a cute little munchkin! And I love how sweet his big sister, Gianna, is to him. She couldn’t stop looking at him and giving him kisses! She absolutely melts my heart. And how stunning is his mama, Alyssa? She only had Gavin two weeks ago and yet she looks AMAZING! #momgoals

Welcome to the world, Gavin! You are so loved!

He looks so much like Gianna in the photo below!

Daddy & his boy!

Although we accidentally scheduled this session right during Gianna’s naptime, I was so impressed at how well she did! She has a great little “cheese” smile and can really turn it on for the camera when she wants to! She wasn’t feeling the idea of getting a photo of just her and her little brother, but I love all the family snuggles we captured!

I love his little furrowed brow!

Such a peaceful little sleeper! I love the lightness of his nursery!

Oh those little baby toes!!! They are too cute!
