Loch Raven Resevoir Maternity: Sonya + Alan

Maryland Maternity Photographer

When Sonya suggested Loch Raven Resevoir for her Maryland maternity session, I immediately googled it and added it to the list of repeat locations. The list has obviously grown this year, but sometimes it’s a “maybe again” and sometimes it’s a “most definitely, heck yes”. We hadn’t even had our session yet and I knew it was going to be gorgeous. Just outside Baltimore, it feels like you’re entering Canadian woodland area. With the insulated cloudy day we were having, the effect was quite dramatic and cinematic. We even lucked out and met some very kind ducks who wanted to pose in the background for us. 🙂

The Family

Sonya, Alan, and I share a few friends, knowing them in different stages of their life. I went to high school with this particular couple in common. We all took intro to acting together and you can see their maternity session here! Sonya and Alan ended up meeting them in college and became dear friends! I adore how small this world is, and it’s even better getting to work with clients who all know and love each other!

We arrived to a blustery day, with the lake and woods as our backdrop, and not too many visitors roaming the area. Alan runs a watch company called Tsao Baltimore, so we obviously had to incorporate that into their session!

One of my favorite things is appreciating the serious and more posed moments, and a moment later inviting in laughter. They bounced between the two flawlessly. We wanted to capture the essence of the weather’s dramatics, while maintaining true to who they are as a couple! Sonya’s emerald dress looks STUNNING, and we opted for a second casual look.

I’m just stoked for these two and their growing family!! Check out favorites from the day below and let me know what you think! And if you’re around Baltimore, make sure to check out Loch Raven Resevoir….it is incredible.

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."

"Sarah creates a fun, creative, and safe environment that brings out the very best you to photograph. I had a great time in my headshot session with her and I ended up with beautiful photos (that actually look like me) I would be proud to bring into any audition room. 10/10 would recommend!"
