It’s safe to say I ended the year on a high note! Jessica wanted to surprise her Marine boyfriend with a Love Birds session, but when I arrived I found out they had just gotten engaged on Christmas Eve! Have I mentioned how much I love engagement sessions? It’s a bit of an obsession. It only helped that weather in Southern Maryland has been unusually pleasant lately and last Saturday was no exception. St. Mary’s City had blue skies with barely a cloud in sight. There was the slightest breeze, which was perfect for that “fantastic wind-swept look” that I die over. To top it off, this pair needed no instructions. From the minute I started snapping, they were completely in the moment, barely aware I was around. By the end of the session I had leaves in my hair and dirt on my jeans. Needless to say, we had fun!
