Newborn Session, In Home Lifestyle

Newborn Session, In Home Lifestyle

One of the last things the mom in this session said to me was “I’ve never been so relaxed during a photo session!” Can you imagine?! A mom of a preschooler, toddler and newborn said she was relaxed at all, let alone while doing family photos! But this is really something I strive for – to make families feel comfortable and happy, at ease and yet capture their sweet, authentic moments as a family.

Check out this sweet family in their in home newborn lifestyle session in Winter Garden, Florida.  You’ll see the love they have for each other immediately!

Help me welcome baby Charlotte! Congratulations to Mom, Dad, big sister and big brother!

Time passes in a weird way with a newborn. So little sleep. So much to do. The days feel long and the years feel short when they’re little. But it is so important to capture all those details of those first few years but especially the newborn phase.

30 minutes in July: An Evening at the Beach

30 minutes in July: An Evening at the Beach

I recently joined a group of photographers who share 30 minutes of their ordinary life through their lens. Each month we share a little slice of our life with you as we see it.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m taking enough photos. Or perhaps too many.

But a dedicated time like this is perfect for me. I can let life happen naturally and document it.

I am reminded that there really can’t be enough documentation of these moments. She’s taller than last month. Her hair looks different. Her expressions have changed. And I’m so happy that I dedicate time to document these moments that just won’t stand still otherwise.

These photos were taken in the Dubois State Park, Jupter, Fl. with the Jupiter Lighthouse a week before Elodie turned two.

Turning TWO at the Grand Floridian

Turning TWO at the Grand Floridian

I had the honor of meeting this sweet family of three with little George turning TWO at the Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World.

George happens to have the sweetest eyes and smile, as you’ll see here.

Family Photographer Walt Disney World Orlando

And he’s a lucky little man with parents who love him very much!

When his parents contacted me, they told me that George was always moving and running and that I’d need my running shoes on for this session. This was 100% accurate! Haha. But I had so much fun chasing this little cutie all around and capturing him naturally.

Lucas: Newborn Lifestyle Session, In Home

Lucas: Newborn Lifestyle Session, In Home

I had the honor of meeting this sweet family for a newborn session in their home.

Here is Lucas, at 11 days new, along with Mom, Dad and big brother James. James mostly wanted to play and eat popsicles but we managed to get him into a few family photos as well. Some of them included popsicles because… if that doesn’t sum up life with a newborn and a toddler, I’m not sure what does!

Congratulations to this beautiful family!

30 Minutes in June: Father’s Day

30 Minutes in June: Father’s Day

I recently joined a group of photographers who share 30 minutes of their ordinary life through their lens. Each month we share a little slice of our life with you as we see it.

For this month, June, Father’s Day, I decided I wanted to document this extraordinary man – my husband and daughter’s father: Josh.  Earlier this year I was diagnosed with a very serious and life threatening health issue.  It was a scary time for all of us but having a positive, creative outlet through photography and blogging has been wonderful for me.  But I owe a tribute to this man right here.  He has taken over many family duties and house duties all while working full time outside of the house too. I’m one hundred percent sure it’s not easy for him but I’m also one hundred percent sure he’s nailing it.  So, here it is, you get to see a little glimpse into our life where my husband is just doing his thing – being a man who shows up for his family in every way.

I’ve read that even though Millennial Dads are showing up more, doing more house chores and spending more time with their children, that they’re also happy to be doing these things and it makes them happier people. I think you’ll be able to tell that my husband is really happy through these photos. So I’d say it’s true. Is this true in your family?

Father Daughter Photo Session in Club Cool, Epcot

Father Daughter Photo Session in Club Cool, Epcot

If you’ve been to Epcot in Walt Disney World, you’ve probably stopped in at Club Cool, a Coca Cola store and soda sample spot. At Club Cool, you can taste “flavors around the world” for free as well as buy Coca Cola merchandise and coke slushies. With Epcot’s renovations scheduled later this year, Club Cool may be changing so we wanted to document one of our favorite spots before it does.

My husband has always loved Club Cool and loves popping in there for a quick, sweet taste. So I did a Father’s Day photo session here at Club Cool with my husband and daughter for the “Best Pop Ever.”

If you’ve tried all of these flavors before, you’ll know all about the “Beverly Face” so be sure to check out Elodie’s Beverly Face! Haha
