The Manupella Family | Annapolis Family Photographer

Are you ready for an incredible session, with a beautiful family, and a mama who has incredibly gorgeous hair… well get ready because the Manupella family won’t disappoint. I met Amanda a few years back on an online photography group, she was living in virginia at the time, and is a pretty incredible Wedding Photographer, you can check her out here! Well, a few months ago she moved to Maryland, and I knew I had to meet her in real life. Much to my surprise she contacted me about taking her family’s fall portraits… shhhhh don’t tell her but I was completely honored that she asked me and was secretly in my office doing the happy dance! So we planned the evening around a perfect sunset.. and we got just that! I was so excited to see her, and meet her sweet girls! As a girl mom of two, I really love to photograph sisters, it makes me think of my own girls, and then I realize how much I love photos of my girls and love giving that gift to someone else!

As a photographer I know that she is often behind the lens and not in front of it, so capturing her with her family not just smiling at the camera but just being with them, soaking them in, was so important to me. To capture images that she can see herself in not as a business boss lady, or a photographer… but as mama, the most important title she holds was beautiful. Images that can be cherished for many years, even when those two girls have grown and may no longer fit in her lap the same way, she can remember the laughter and the fun, and just how special it is to be their mama!

We had a blast running around the park until the last drop of golden tones disappeared behind the tree line, the gentle breeze carried away with the sound of two little girls giggles and the ran off together. I cherished our time together, and that evening with Amanda and her family, really didin’t feel like the first time I’d just met them, they felt like old friends… like we had known each other for ages… and since she lives just a few minutes away and we have girls close to the same ages, I see a beautiful friendship in the making!
