30 Minutes in Our Life: Moving

30 Minutes in Our Life: Moving

Moving.  Moving has so many emotions attached to it.  It’s almost always bittersweet as you close one door and open another, literally.  You are moving from one place where you grew your families’ memories to a place where many new memories’ will be built.

For this move, we also get to learn from the knowledge of my husband.  He is a builder.  So our daughter gets to follow along and learn as he checks our house to make sure everything in the process is running smoothly. This month, our 30 minutes in our ordinary life was spent doing just that: our daughter exploring our new home under the supervision of my husband.  They did some quality assurance checks, checking to make sure everything looks up to standards.

Here she is checking out the upstairs with the loft and bedrooms. Yes, she’s in her ballet outfit because we came from ballet but can’t forget boots and a hard hat for safety!

She’s excited and everything looks good!  She’s planning where all of her castles are going…

Next on to check out the downstairs with the kitchen and the tile. And of course, a snack break!

Everything looks good, Dad! High five!

What tips do you have for moving with a little one? We will be moving into this house in just about a month and will be posting about our move daily over on Instagram – we’d love to have you follow along!

All photos were taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 35 mm Art lens, edited in Lightroom.

A Joyous Morning: 30 Minutes in December

A Joyous Morning: 30 Minutes in December

This month, our 30 minutes were simple and festive. The 30 minutes it took my daughter to open her Christmas gifts is also just about the most festive thing I can think of. There’s so much joy on Christmas morning. Not because of physical gifts.  But because it’s together time; a reminder of all the magic we work hard to provide all year long, wrapped up simply and festively to celebrate the holiday season.

I’m wishing you and your family a joyous and festive holiday season and new year!

Can you tell what her two favorite gifts were?

These were all taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 35 mm Art lens and edited lightly for color in Lightoom.

Gorgeous Engagement Session in Clermont

Gorgeous Engagement Session in Clermont

This stunning couple showed up to their engagement session ready for some sweet romance, to celebrate and announce their engagement!

Nick has brought Analice sunflowers throughout the time they’ve been dating, so sunflowers included in their session was the perfect addition to represent their love.

I love the soft greens and pinks from these fields that helped their session come out so incredibly dreamy.

Of course every engagement session needs to highlight the other star of the show: the beautiful engagement ring! Representing the promise of love and dedication to each other.

The start of a new adventure together: I cannot wait to see where this journey leads this gorgeous couple!

Congratulations, Nick and Analice! Your love for each other shined throughout your session. I know that the beginning of this next chapter is sure to bring amazing love and joy for the two of you.

Gorgeous Family Session with Two Little Boys in Winter Garden

Gorgeous Family Session with Two Little Boys in Winter Garden

This family has a lot to celebrate this holiday season: they have a new baby boy and a little boy who just turned 3! They came to their session ready to celebrate and have fun, which is perfect.

First, some photos of this little guy turning THREE, with a big 3 ballon! It says “I am Three” in both English and Dutch as their father is from The Netherlands.

Then he picked a flower for Mommy! The sweeeeetest…

These little boys with their big eyes! So adorable!

Some snuggles, tickles and play time is always included in sessions with little ones. Although little brother seems a little skeptical of all the silliness!

So thankful for another stunning evening with beautiful light for this family session in Winter Garden, Florida.

This gorgeous family rocked their family session.  Adjusting to life with two littles isn’t always easy, but this family makes it quite beautiful!
