Just Can't Get Enough Of These Two! | Julie Marie Portraits | Delaware Children's Photographer

Can you tell somebody loves his daddy?


The Jake Ottoman | Julie Marie Portraits | Delaware Children's Photographer

I wanted to show you something that I have been working on.  I'm calling it The Jake Ottoman.  It's a photo ottoman that i made for Jakey's playroom.  I am by no means a seamstress, and I sure wish I would have let my mom teach me how to sew while growing up at home...but to be honest, since she could sew, I just let her do everything, and I paid no attention.  

Anyway, I wanted to show you what I came up with!  
 By the way....I have more red ribbon to attach to the left curtain that I made, but I have yet to do it.  They had ran out of ribbon at the store, and I just picked some up...but I have yet to attach it to the left panel!

Hope you enjoy!  We are having fun pointing out who is on the ottoman.  Jake especially likes looking at Dexter on it!

2nd Birthday to this beautiful little girl!  Today is her actual birthday, so I wanted to make sure to get these on the blog!  Hope you have a great day, and we can't wait to celebrate your birthday! (This is one of Jake's little friends that he loves to see!)

 This one just cracked me up!



Remember this couple? | Julie Marie Portraits | Baltimore Wedding Photographer

I love, love, love this couple!  I met them for the first time back in 2009 when they hired me to photograph their wedding.  Ever since, we've stayed in contact via facebook, texts and talking on the phone.  They are seriously the nicest, most genuine couple ever.....and I was lucky enough to see them again to do a fun photo shoot since they just celebrated their 1 year anniversary.  Except this time...I got to meet their babies......

Thanks B&T!  It was so good seeing you guys again and meeting your pups!

We found something new that we like to do!

and somebody sure loves his daddy!


A Downtown DC Christening | Julie Marie Portraits | Washington, DC Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing a christening for a very special little guy.   He's actually related to the bride/groom from the December wedding that I did, so when his mom told me it would be at the same location, I couldn't wait.  Plus, I got to see a lot of people from their wedding at the christening.

This little guy was so, so handsome, and he was absolutely perfect.  When they arrived at the church for the christening, he was sound asleep.   When he woke up, he was full of smiles.   I don't think he cried once during the entire day!  

Both of the grandmothers were responsible for getting him dressed in his gorgeous gown....as you can see, we had some fun while he was getting ready!

No cries at all with the water!! 

There were actually four priests performing the christening.
His gown was just beautiful and so classic!
and I couldn't resist showing you this little expression!

The reception was held at the Park Hyatt in downtown DC.
The godfather and soon to be godmother in the middle with little C and his parents.

Thanks P family!  It was so great to meet all of you and witness C's christening!


Is JMP Back? | Julie Marie Portraits, Delaware Wedding Photographer

Yep...JMP is back! You may have noticed that the blog has been pretty quiet for the past two months.  Well, part of the reason is because everybody has had their share of sicknesses, and we've had a lot of visitors....but the main reason is because I had decided that I was taking two months off.  My baby boy turned 11 months old yesterday, and I just feel like these past 11 months of his life have went by way too quickly !  I've really struggled this past year with feeling guilty for not spending every second with my little guy, and I decided that I needed to do something about that guilt!  So....I'm now slowly getting back to work, and you can expect to see some more action on the blog (as well as playing catch-up on the blog from last year's sessions, too)!  JMP has a lot of exciting things going on this year....a Vegas wedding, a Maine wedding, a Florida wedding, a New York wedding, 2 Pittsburgh weddings, Virginia weddings, Delaware weddings and lots & lots of fun kiddos/family sessions already scheduled!

And without further ado....I had the pleasure of meeting this gorgeous couple recently in Dover.  What a great session for me to start back to work with, huh!  Hope you enjoy the photos!  Congratulations to B&C on their engagement and their upcoming wedding on 9.10.11 that will be held in the bride's home state of Nevada!
