I always like to photograph the signature drink the groomsmen are enjoying while getting ready if I can. When I walked into their room, I mentioned to one of the groomsmen that I wanted to take a quick shot… and he handed me a cup! I told him I didn’t need it but he still didn’t realize that I mean photograph and not an actual shot, hehe… Once he noticed what I was doing he said, “Ohh! I was gonna say – Jonathan all your wedding photos are going to be crooked!” :)Celebrations at the Bay, Bayside Bride, Chesapeake Bay, Maryland Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, Spring Wedding, Outdoor Wedding, Wedding Inspiration

It was a cozy rainy day. Kait and her sisters got ready at a home close to the barn where their wedding was going to take place just a few hours later… Their mom watched as her girls curled and sprayed each other’s hair until they needed her to help when it was time for Carly (who did everyone else’s hair) to do her own. Andrew’s mom Shirley was also there (it was her boyfriends home where they got ready) and looking beautiful in her navy blue dress, was so attentive to the girls and asked if there was anything they needed to eat or drink, or if they were hot or cold down in the basement.

As soon as we arrived at the barn, it was time for Kait and Andrew’s First Look. Because it was raining, Kait had to hold an umbrella to walk from the car to the covered stable were he was waiting for her, so I gave Andrew her bouquet to give to her when he turned around… one less thing for her to carry. :)Carroll County Maryland Spring Wedding, Barn Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.comCarroll County Maryland Spring Wedding, Barn Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com

Rachel and Justin met while both attending a training class at work. They locked eyes across the room and once the class was over, he introduced himself to her and the rest is history… He proposed to Rachel in Cape May at sunrise too, while out on a jetty overlooking the ocean! Talk about romantic… He even had his sister come and photograph it for them. So sweet and so special!

It was so fun to hang out with them at Codorus State Park in Hanover, Pennsylvania for their Engagement Session. We had beautiful soft light, a light little breeze, and lots of laughs together!

I’ve known Sara since I was about 5 years old and she was just a baby! Our families went to church together and now, we all consider each other to be family and have so many memories together (the best kind of friends to have!). I had so much fun in Fells Point with Sara and Tyler! They live just outside of the city and love spending time in Fells, walking around together, hanging out at their favorite spot – Barcocina, and enjoying all things “nightlife”. They’re both music teachers too which is awesome, and they plan on incorporating much of that flair into their wedding day… The wedding till take place at Sara’s uncle’s house in south-central Pennsylvania this summer and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of it! They’re so cute and comfortable and relaxed together.. We had such a blast walking around, talking about the wedding day, and just having fun!

Can’t wait to make more pictures and spend time with these two (and their families and friends!) in July… It’s going to be amazing!!!

Before moving onto read this post, please keep these two in your prayers. About a week after our session together, their little dog Pickle (the small one) was attacked and passed away. I’m not sure about any other details, all I know is how heartbreaking this time is for them. Dogs are like family to many of us, and losing one in any way is absolutely crushing… He was such a little sweetheart!

***

John proposed to Gloria before her college football game. Her bff, also her roommate, asked if they wanted to walk around the campus and take some photos. John got down on one knee in front of one of Gloria’s favorite buildings on campus and popped the question! She of course said yes!

The wait to get into Great Falls Park was about 45 minutes once you pulled in because we were photographing on the first really nice spring day we have had yet this year! It was warm, sunny, and so many people had come to spend the day at the park! But we were able to walk around and enjoy ourselves, getting some great shots along the way!

Gloria’s sweet mom came along to help spend time with Bo and Pickle after their photos were over. How adorable are they? Gloria’s gorgeous long blonde hair looked absolutely flawless! (Hair & Makeup by Ashley Alana)

It’s been about two and a half years since Theresa and Chris’s early-fall wedding day in Westminster, Maryland… They are such a sweet couple and have a precious little boy, Talan. It was so great to see them for a little family session, especially now that they have a second little cutie pie, Casen! Talan has gotten so big, has lost his front tooth, and is reading like a champ! He’s such a good big brother to Casen, lets him play with his toys, and looks out for him when they’re together. He’s so good with sharing and it’s so sweet to watch. We just hung out in their beautiful cozy home on a rainy afternoon…Maryland Portrait Photographer, Lifestyle Family Session, Home Portraits, Lifestyle Portraits, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, Kristen Smith Photography, Family, family pictures

I just love the angle of Casen’s eyebrows… No matter what his facial expression is, they always seem to be on a slight slant and they’re just so cute! Talan loves to push himself up and swing on anything he can, it seems! Look at those adorable freckles! They are just so cute!Maryland Portrait Photographer, Lifestyle Family Session, Home Portraits, Lifestyle Portraits, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, Kristen Smith Photography, Family, family pictures

I was so excited to host our family for Easter this year! Hosting is one of my absolute favorite ways to join together the things I love the most… home-making, cooking, decorating, and spending time with our family… I love the way our street looks in the spring with all of the magnolia trees and cherry blossom trees that are tucked between the houses. Everything just looks bright and fresh and sweet and it makes me so happy!

Tyler’s mom brought us this beautiful Easter lily!

I always leave my time spent with artists of any kind feeling very inspired and refreshed, like my creative energy has had a complete boost of something new, different, and exciting! Photographing Heather as she worked in her studio was not only so much fun, but so creatively stimulating. She graduated from The Maryland Institute College of Art and currently resides just 30 minutes north of Baltimore with her husband and two beautiful children. She commutes to her studio to create – her mom’s garage! – which is the perfect place to not only spread out her materials and equipment but also to separate work from home. I know that for me personally, that can be hard sometimes so it’s nice that she has a separate space. Her kids come with her and play with their grandma, help with the dishes as you will see, and play in the sprinkler out back when it’s hot out!

She says in her website biography that her “work explores basic emotional states. We’ve all found ourselves in varying situations of confinement, camaraderie, reverie, and desolation… These scenarios might evoke a different emotional reaction for each individual… I intend to bring attention to this universal human condition.” She says she finds “joy in the tactile”, creating abstract work with beautiful nuances of color, line, and texture.

I had a few questions for Heather…

1. Did you discover your artistic calling at a young age? 
Yes.  I think so.  I was always saying I was going to be an artist.  I spent a lot of time creating, drawing and painting.  I only really deviated a bit in high school thinking about fashion design, but ended up at a fine arts college anyway.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

2. What inspires you the most?
Reading and travel.  Each in a different way, but I really think it has to do with a bit of escapism.  I love a road trip and my mind wanders and I seem to always come back full of new ideas for the studio.  When I’m reading I think a similar thing occurs.  My active thoughts are given a break and I am swept up.  Many times a phrase or words catches my attention and inspires a painting.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

3. What’s your biggest challenge as a “painter-preneur” and how do you try and overcome it?
I would say the biggest challenge is staying true to my own direction and not thinking about what will sell.  This is a fine line.  I try to offer options that can make art assessable to everyone.  I offer prints, smaller paintings and at sometimes during the year cards and hand painted ornaments.  

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

4. What color are you most inspired by and why?
This year blue has got me in all its varies hues.  Most of my collections this year have been about water, movement and the idea of many pieces making up a whole.  I’ve recently started to work in more muted tones in my encaustic and am starting a few works on paper that will play with darker grays and maybe even black.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

5. Are you reading any good books right now?
I am reading several.  I tend to do that!  In the living room I have The Girl with The Gallery, on my nightstand I have The Day Book, and on my kindle I have a thriller Depraved Heart.  There is something about this time of year, that I love to cozy up under the blanket and read a good mystery.  At the same time I always have an art book of some sort that I keep coming back to.   Next up is a book I’m re-reading on Richard Diebenkorn, in anticipation for an exhibition of his work at the BMA.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

6. Favorite movie?
Gah!  I am really bad at narrowing things down.  True to form I have various taste, Love Actually, Goodfellas,  Amalie.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

7. Favorite food?
All the food.  I am a fan.  My tops are sushi, Thai and Italian.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

8. Do you like to work in silence or with music? Why or why not?
I either work with silence or a podcast.  Silence because I have two young children and I am surrounded by noise most of the time, so it’s a nice break.  I also enjoy listening to podcast I find inspiring like, Art for your Ear and Magic Lessons.

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

9. Out of the variety of mediums you use, which is your fave??? 
Girl, you’re killing me! At the moment I am coming full circle and am really enjoying oils, my first love.  But each of the mediums I work with I love for different reasons.  Encaustics are so unique and I can manipulate  them in both 2 and 3 dimensions.  Acrylics allow me a great expediency and I can build layers quickly. 

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

10. Any tips or pieces of advice for fellow local artisans?
Just start.  Whatever it is that is the next step for you, don’t wait for perfection.  Keep moving forward and you will figure out what you need to as you go.

I am a partner at a project called Carve Out Time for Art with Marissa Huber

“Our mission is to empower people to stop dreaming and start doing, especially when it comes to carving out time for art. 
We are passionate about building community, encouraging others (especially women), and connecting people.
Our mission is to cultivate a positive and nurturing community for creatives who want to find time to satisfy this part of their 
identity. We do this by fostering conversations, connecting creatives with resources, and showing people they are not alone.”

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

Watching the encaustic process was so cool… She heats up the little cups of colored wax, paints the wax onto her canvas, and scrapes it off once it dries. She adds layers and layers of color and texture and creates something so unique and beautiful!

Heather Kirtland, Baltimore Maryland Artist, Encaustic Art, Painting, Acrylic Painter, East Coast Artist, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, www.heatherkirtland.com, Artisan Portrait, Portraits, Studio, Painter, Annapolis Artist

The torch heats the wax so she can create movement, designs, and drips wherever she wants to on the canvas…

When Mary shared news with me that she would be teaching a class for Rocky Mountain School of Photography at B&H Photo in Manhattan, she asked if I wanted to come along for the trip. Luckily my calendar was clear and we were so excited to spend the day together in The Big Apple!

The only time I have been to NYC was about 13 years ago. My cousin and her family live in SoHo, and I went to visit her for a weekend with my mom and aunt. I remember taking a carriage ride through Central Park, taking a double-decker bus tour of the city, and seeing the Rockettes perform at Radio City Music Hall. We had gone into Tiffany’s, Prada, Kate Spade, and walked around in Macy’s. But this time, I was excited for us to just walk around with no real itinerary other than making it back to our bus in time to go home.

There really is something about this city… it’s amazing. You feel something different in the air. It’s classic, historic, fresh, and cutting-edge all at the same time. Everyone is on their own agenda, minding their business, doing their thing. So many beautifully different faces, styles, cultures, scents, sights, architectures… I was just in awe of all of it. The food – oh my gosh the food… I wish I could seriously take a year off and just try every single restaurant. I feel like I have so much to say about our day yesterday and have no idea how to organize my thoughts… That’s why I take pictures, so I hope you enjoy…

Our bus left at 6:20 am from White Marsh. I spent the night at Mary’s the night before so we could be on time because goodness knows that being up at 4:00 am isn’t something I do too often… We got ready with our coffee, some fresh fruit, granola bars, and our bags, and took our seats on the top level, second row back from the front. I don’t typically get car-sick but whoa… Soon after we were on 95, it passed and we spent the 3 and a half hours talking, snap-chatting, giggling, and anticipating our day. Before we knew it, we saw the city skyline! It was awesome to be there so early so we could have a full day there!

A tech’s dream wonderland… It was cool to see just where all of the gear we order comes from! Guarded by security, the warehouse is filled with so many people browsing the aisles filled with cameras, TVs, chords, flashes, video cameras, stands, and so much more. We found the room upstairs where Mary would be teaching almost 500 people (70 in the classroom and over 400 livestreaming!) all about using your personality to develop your photograph style! She teaches all around the country for Rocky Mountain School of Photography!

I met at the Ragged Edge Coffee Shop in Gettysburg, PA with Jen, Nick, and their little girl Jamie to grab a cozy cup of coffee before heading to the battlefields to explore Big Round Top. We had a bit of an overcast day but we were perfectly happy with it after rescheduling due to rain! Enjoy a few of my favorites of this cute couple and beautiful daughter…Gettysburg Pennsylvania Engagement Pictures Winter Session PA Wedding Photographer Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com
