Ocean City Maryland Family Photographer | Mommy and Me Sessions

Ocean City, MD Mommy and Me Beach Sessions

I am so excited for this series of sessions. I will be holding mommy and me beach sessions on Saturday April 27th and Sunday April 28, 2019. I will only be offering a handful of these sessions so spots are very limited. I will open up booking on Friday January 25, 2019 at 9am. You can email melkratzer@gmail.com to hold your session spot.

The details… The session fee is $175.00 plus tax. Each session will be 30 minutes long. I will be offering them at sunrise and sunset. They will include 5 digital images with the option to purchase more digital images and prints. There is a $50 retainer to hold your session date. Location will be at a location of my choice in Ocean City MD.

These mini sessions are perfect if you have been wanting the opportunity to capturing yourself with your babies but didn’t want a full session. I focus on the candid in between moments and snuggles. Nothing to posed.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all!


Ocean City, Maryland Wedding Photographer | Thomas + Mary Kate Engaged

This past weekend I got to capture Thomas and Mary Kate's engagement session on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland. During their session you could tell how madly in love they are with each other.  We started their session with some images of them with their puppy and ended it dancing in the sand. I just love this session, and I am so excited to capture their wedding next year. Thomas and Mary Kate enjoy your preview!

Ocean City Maryland Family Photographer | Miller Family

I was so honored to capture this sweet family on Assateague Island, Maryland. Erin is a fellow photographer and we decided to do family sessions for each other on the beach. I'm so, so happy we did this. It was the first time I have ever had a family session for my own family. I know that's crazy being that I'm a photographer! But like many of you, I got wrapped up in our daily lives and I kept pushing it off. So finally I decided this year I would move it to top priority and I'm so happy I did.  

The weather was perfect for Erin's session. We didn't get horses in the background but the beautiful weather and perfect sunset made up for it. Take a look at what we created!
