Tracy and Ella | Maryland

How wonderful it is to work as a team. I'm not very used to that in my photographic career. We're loners, aren't we? Us, photographers. But we don't have to be. That's when meeting Jen, Val, and Tracy changed everything. We planned a styled shoot together, to help each other, to spread the word that we are here too, to photograph your most precious moments. 

Jen was really the driving force behind this shoot. This is really her vision and what a beautiful vision it was! So if you go over to her blog you can also see the moments she captured with her delicate eye. We did plan on photographing together, but I feel like I was there more as an observer than as a photographer. Still, I can't help but share the images I got, because lovely Tracy and her baby girl Ella are just two rays of sunshine. 

Valerie Hammer was our ROCKSTAR makeup artist, Justine Bryant provided us with the sweetest fresh flower crowns, and Tracy was not only our gorgeous model, but also did the wardrobe styling. Oh, and did I mention she is also an amazing photographer? Check out her work at Tracy Marshall Photography.

So, cheers to team work, beautiful light, mommy and daughter true love, and some serious magical moments... as in... "Oh hello there family of deer! Sure! Please prance through our scene and pose for us as the sun sets behind the trees!"
