Lower Notley Hall Farm- A Southern Maryland venue is the ultimate hidden gem when it comes to barn venues with an elegant *twist*. I am in love with this venue! It is tucked back into some good old Southern Maryland farm land, but is only conveniently about 30 minutes South of LaPlata!
The house is an original farm house renovated for an antique and elegant feel with all the best natural light for the best getting ready portraits! I love that you get the “original” feel of the house as you first walk in! The barn is a beautiful wood construction that makes your wedding venue oh-so cozy with beautiful waterfront sunsets! I can not say enough!
Lower Notley Manor Farm was the perfect place for Meghan and Nick’s wedding day! They enjoyed getting ready inside the beautiful farm house before they walked out back to exchange their vows right on the water with all of their closest friends and family!
We took some gorgeous portraits on this long dirt road covered by cedar trees and out in front of the house. It brought back all of the good vibes from their engagement session last year in King George, Virginia!

It is so crazy to think the last time I got the pleasure to photograph this family, this little princess was still a bun in the oven! That was last August! Kari, Ross and Kaiden met in the morning at Greenwell State Park and captured some baby belly magic! It was hot, humid and we were being attacked by mosquitos and horse flies! That did not stop us! Kari brought onesies that she made with her cricut! She also makes and sells bows for you baby girl! Check her out on Facebook! (She is definitely the crafty type! and good at it!)
This time, it was much colder and thank goodness… NO BUGS! Still no disappointments here! Little Logan was as happy as she could be and had enough smiles to go around! We met at Newtown Neck State Park and jumped right to it! But because it was an overcast day, it made it much colder! (but made for some amazing light!) Kari had it all planned out! From the outfits (yes, she made the onesie!), to the mirror idea she found on Pinterest, the tutu, pearls and hats! Dressed to the nines!!! She called it her Shania Twain outfits! Ms. Logan was just as cute a a button and the previous family of 3 that is now a family of 4 is just a beautiful as ever!
I am so thankful for the Sweeney family for trusting me to capture their family and all of their milestones! They are such a joy to work with and I am looking forward to watching their family grow over the years!
Much Love, Jenna
