What a full and wonderful day we had in Baltimore today! Darren's cousin Christina is still in town and we invited her to join us on our day trip. Our family had an appointment with a photographer in Baltimore to take Christmas portraits and thought that maybe she'd like to see what B-more was about. The studio was located near Clipper Mill, a former industrial-turned-artists' community on the outskirts of the city. It was a little gem, with artists' studios and shops and the popular Woodberry Kitchen...which although had great atmosphere, was a overrated in food, in my opinion. The industrial atmosphere made for some very cool backdrops, however! Afterwards, we headed down to Inner Harbor and found ourselves to be the only tourists foolish enough to walk around the waterfront on the day before a hurricane was supposed to hit! It was very cold and windy. Sophie and Grace still managed to find fun, but Darren and I were ready to collapse by the end!

|Love the plaid shirted, blue jeaned uniforms...the staff could easily pass for lumberjacks!|

|This door framed the shot very well.|
|I loved the architectural elements strewn throughout.|
