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!

When my sweet friend Alyssa reached out to me about photographing her and her family for maternity portraits, I was over the moon! I photographed Alyssa and her husband Pete as they were expecting their first child Gianna, and it was such a pleasure!

This time around, we headed to Hampton Mansion in Towson.  It was an absolutely beautiful sunny July day, and unseasonably cool – which we were all grateful for!

Our session started off a little rocky – sweet little almost-two-year-old Gianna was not loving having a stranger take her photo! And, we were approaching bed time 😛 But, eventually she warmed up to me and we got a lot of cute shots. Most of which were candid – but those are sometimes the most precious ones!

Gia is definitely a mama’s girl right now – but I bet she’ll be loving her daddy-daughter time once her little brother arrives! Oh, and she’s one of the best dressed toddlers around. Just check out her outfits!

I hope you all enjoy these sweet photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

There’s the smile we were looking for!

I love all of their outfits! So well dressed!

Alyssa always rocks her baby belly! So beautiful!

I’m convinced that Alyssa is incapable of taking a bad picture. But seriously, she is absolutely GLOWING!

We were blessed with a beautiful sunset!
