I'm not sure there is anyone who knows Lewes, Delaware better than this dude. This adventure with the Carter boys was almost as vigourous as one of Matt's ninja training sessions. *Warning* Do not attempt any of the following without adult supervision.
A super close family + amazing food + a fantastic venue + and a parody speech/rap by the bride's sister that brought the house down. Not in the words of Will Smith himself but with his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song music behind it this is where it's at... "Love, respect and compromise - it'll take you far and keep you alive."

I know that children aren't in the equation for everyone but stories are my joy and some couples' journeys include a little bundle along the way. Many people are intrigued that I document birth stories, and honestly, I'm not sure I would be capable of telling those stories if I didn't have children of my own. It is an intense space to be in and one that I am honored to have been invited into many times over my years of being a photographer. Birth stories are completely different from wedding stories which is why I invite wedding couples to head directly to my wedding blog stream; but if you are up for it I invite you to read the full post...
Here's the birth story of Baby Keller and his journey into this world.
p.s. thank you all for being so patient while I was in the process of updating the new site. I look forward to posting more freely and have LOTS to share. xo Maria
