Hey there!

I'm Barb, a photographer from Frederick, Maryland. I live for belly laughs, chocolate chip cookies without chocolate chips, and a good afternoon nap. I'm a wife and mama-on-the-go. When I'm not behind the wheel of my car or viewfinder of my camera you can find me on the sidelines cheering on my little softball player and baseball player, enjoying a diner breakfast with my hubby, or playing with my pups. Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to talk with you about your wedding or portrait session!
