Lakeside Love and a Sunset: Capturing a Momma and Her Kiddos

Marta is an incredible inspiration as a mother -- in 30 minutes time with her and her children, you can see her strength and love. You can feel the joy she brings to her son and daughter. Their laughter rings loud and gleefully whenever they are together.

Marta reached out to me in the midst of a difficult period in her life. She wanted photos that would capture her children and their love to begin this next new chapter of hope.

We explored the beach and esplanade area at Lake Linganore and followed the kiddos as they laughed and played together. They ran, jumped, played with toys and even dug their hands into the sand at the beach. We watched the sun fall onto the water.

I also loved that Marta’s mom and her partner joined us for the session. Their love for one another and for their grandchildren was so beautiful and powerful.

Love comes in so many different ways and is my favorite thing to capture with my camera.

Enjoy this peek into Marta and her family’s day at the beach.

Lakefront Family Memories: A Lake Linganore Photo Session with a Family of Five

This family includes one of my dearest friends in Maryland and her gorgeous family. Rachel and Adam and their kiddos have been an important part of our lives since we moved to Lake Linganore just over two years ago. Their eldest daughter has been in our daughter’s class two of the past three school years and are two-thirds of a self-proclaimed “Pirate Crew.” We go camping together and have enjoyed numerous birthday parties, ladies nights’, playdates, Girl Scout events and more together.

Rachel is a fantastic mother who always only yearns for more and better time with her two girls and one boy. She actually even makes the outfits for her kids for their first day of school and photo sessions -- the dresses you see the girls wearing (and her skirt!) in these photos were all made by Rachel, late at night, in the quiet of her home after bedtime.

We met for our session near a trail by the dam at end of Lake Linganore, right in front of their home. We used the beautiful early-morning light peeking through some mountain haze for photos along the water, the path and even on their dock.

I love the wildness and freeness you feel with this family and in these photos -- joy and exploration and giddy fun.

Enjoy this peek into a day in the life of this important family with perfect details, huge smiles and a lot of love.

Returning Clients and a Sunset Photo Session on the Beach

I first met Jen and her beautiful family last winter after her second son was born. We held an in-home lifestyle newborn photo session at their gorgeous home in December. I loved watching Big Brother hold the baby with such joy and admiration. And Jen is such a natural mother -- she is patient, kind, graceful and so giving.

This Fall, I’ve had the honor of capturing their first official photos as a family of four. We met at a local neighborhood beach with a sunset and a shimmering reflective lake as our backdrop. The boys loved cuddling together and playing in the sand.

Jen is so beautifully gorgeous -- inside as well as on the outside -- and seeing her in that easy motherhood role with her boys was so special to me. They twirled, ran together, held hands and enjoyed time together exploring the area together.

Jen told me later that she was in happy tears when she saw the final photos from her family session and that is just beyond wonderful to hear. We only get so many years -- and so many autumns -- with our children -- how lucky we are to be able to freeze time now and then on each phase in life.

Enjoy this peek into this incredible family of four and all of their joy and love!

Boys on the Beach: A Lake Linganore Beachfront Family Photo Session

I love supporting my local community and one of the ways I do that is to offer a complimentary photo session a handful of times a year to important causes. This year, one of those events was a race at my kids’ elementary school. I loved supporting their silent auction and couldn’t wait to meet the winners -- an amazing neighborhood family who happens to have a son in my son’s grade! The two boys both knew of one another and yep, a playdate is already in the planning stages!

We met at a nearby beach for an evening session that offered us gentle breezes, gorgeous golden light and a lot of laughs as we explored and adventured both on the beach and on a nearby trail.

The boys are so adoring of one another and of their parents and it made the session a true joy. There were races, dancing, silly faces and a lot of beautiful posed photos in between, too.

I loved their coordinating and classy outfits that screamed summertime happiness and felt so lucky to capture these blonde-haired, blue-eyed boys and their parents.

Enjoy this peek into an incredible family and a heck of a lot of joy!

A&K: A Lakefront Childrens’ Birthday Photo Session in Lake Linganore with Wendy Zook Photography

When Mom contacted me about a photo session to hit the pause button on her kids’ rapidly-growing and rapidly-changing childhood fleeting by, she was understandably nervous about a photo session. Photo sessions can be intimidating, especially if your kiddos are energetic and don’t like to slow down. But I welcome this! I love adventuring with young children -- they get to be in charge and we go with the flow and keep them comfortable.

For my photo session with A and K, who are 2 and 4 years old, we met on the beach in our Lake Linganore neighborhood. We first explored down a nearby forested path along the edge of the lake. They ran, twirled, pointed out little animals. We then made our way back to the beach where we let them enjoy time playing in the sand and wading in the shallow water of the lake. It was just pure joy and whimsy.

About halfway through our session, Mom gave me a supreme compliment, saying that she was so comfortable and that I made the experience surprisingly easy for her and the kids. That made my heart so happy to hear. I love that we can make the capturing of memories easy and enjoyable for everyone.

Enjoy this peek into two adorable kiddos adventuring on the beach!

A family’s first photo shoot: Capturing a Frederick County family of three

When the H family first reached out to me, it was actually the dad who emailed first, which doesn’t happen nearly as often as the momma in the family contacting me to schedule a session does. Dad was excited to take part in the Wendy Zook Photography spring sessions I offered in Lake Linganore along with his wife and their 18-month-old daughter, E.

I was so honored and grateful when I learned that the H family had never actually had photos taken of them as a family of three. I couldn’t wait to explore our neighborhood together on a gorgeous Spring day, letting Miss E take the lead as she checked out forested paths, rocky trails and lakefront views. She was so adorable, really bright and just so much fun to capture.

We chased ducks and shared a lot of laughs and were able to capture some really adorable moments for them to enjoy long after these fun and funny toddler moments are over. This stage is one of my favorites -- slightly clumsy, super curious and really cute! -- and it goes by so quickly.

After I shared their final gallery with them, they were so appreciative of the images and these captured memories. Sessions like this one seriously make me feel like the luckiest photographer in the world because I get to do something I love, something that means so much to my clients and something that turns my clients into familiar faces and friends in the neighborhood.

Enjoy this peek into little Miss E and her parents!

Fall family photo sessions in Lake Linganore are taking place soon! You can grab a spot here.

An Outdoor Extended Family Photo Session of Generations, Grandkids and Giggles

Some of my favorite photo sessions are the ones that go well beyond the families of four (although those are the ones I do most often!). I really love having even more people of all ages to combine in different groupings and capture in mini reunions that are so special to them and me.

This session took place in my favorite neighborhood location in Lake Linganore -- it’s a spot that offers a great variety of backdrops year-round -- forested paths, meadows, rocks along a small lake.

There were 11 people in three different generations all together. We were able to capture Grandma and Grandpa with their grandkids, the smaller individual families and all of the kiddos together and in solo portraits. Extended family photo sessions take a bit more organization and at the same time a bit more of a go-with-the-flow attitude and flexibility. I always wind up with a few photos that are so exciting and surprising that I can’t wait to share with my clients.

Enjoy this peek at this Lake Linganore extended family photo session. You can request your own extended family photo session here.

One Family, Many Sessions : Capturing One Frederick County Family with Multiple Photo Sessions

Ask any photographer and I guarantee they’ll tell you the ultimate compliment is a repeat client. Someone who has trusted you with their family and their story not only once but multiple times over the years. They truly become friends and you get the privilege of watching their little ones grow.

While Wendy Zook Photography has many repeat clients who come back annually or even a couple of times a year, one of the best supporters of WZP is the Davis Family.

Jen has become a woman and mom I admire and respect so much for so many reasons. She’s incredible with her babies (four of them, including twins!), but even more inspiring as a strong woman who doesn’t give up and is fearless with her dreams. I’ve had not one, not two, not even three but FIVE different sessions with Jen, her husband and her family in the past year. Each one has a different style, location, theme and purpose but all of them tell the story of one incredibly special family.

Jen and Tim modeled for me during a collaboration with Frederick County makeup and lash artist Gina Marie Beauty in a spectacular field on a chilly winter day. I also captured Jen in solo portrait sessions -- one on a snowy day and another springtime session -- both of which cemented the fact that Jen is gorgeous inside and out. And then, two really fun Lake Linganore family photo sessions with the entire family of six -- hugging, jumping, exploring and loving.

I’m always grateful for Jen’s support of my business and the opportunity to capture her amazing family in images she can keep and reflect on for always. I can’t wait for the next session with them all!

You can sign up for the next round of Lake Linganore photo sessions here.
