Lovely Family of 11 at Disney Springs

Lovely Family of 11 at Disney Springs

Imagine what it would look like for eleven people, four generations, spanning two continents to come together in the most magical place on Earth… that’s exactly what this is!

These grandparents were incredibly sweet and loving. From snuggles to treats, they had the grandparent gig all figured out. Everyone had so much fun.  Don’t worry – Great Grandpa got a treat!

This family has a special place in their hearts for Disney Springs as they’ve spent a lot of time there together. It also made a perfect spot for their session because after they were done playing and having fun during our session, they got to have a fun-filled family evening there.

I absolutely love big families because the joy and love just multiplies exponentially. With four young children, I’m sure it can feel busy, or even a little wild. However, as you can see in these photos, the comfort in knowing you have the love and support of each other makes it all worth it.

I know that this mom was hoping for genuine smiles during this session… These kids delivered!

What I didn’t expect was for these two guys to start planning their own shots by the end of the session and having a blast doing it!

This session was a family session done in the morning in Windermere, Florida. Mom said they were going for breakfast after. This seemed like a really ideal morning for this family – we had fun playing and exploring at this park and then they enjoyed a family meal after. Perfect!

Family Session on Their Farm

Family Session on Their Farm

When this family contacted me about a family session, they asked if I would be open to coming to their farm. My immediate answer was yes and from now on whenever anyone asks me if I can come to their farm, it will always be yes!

Farms are just the perfect place for photos. And this family’s farm with their sweet animals and beautiful evening light was the PERFECT spot to capture this family just as they are.

Here are a few with their beloved animals.  They have pigs, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks and more! I loved seeing how responsible these two guys were with the animals and how loving the animals were.  I’d imagine getting goat kisses is absolutely as sweet as it looks. And some of these animals were actually posing! They must love the camera!

One of the best parts about this session being on this family’s large farm was the variety of places we could take photos.  We also got the opportunity to just let everyone play while I captured their normal family life.

I even caught a few snuggles on one of their quilts.

A few photos by the pond on their property rounded out this perfect session!

30 Minutes in October: My Location Scouting Buddy

30 Minutes in October: My Location Scouting Buddy

It doesn’t get any more real than this. This is an accurate portrayal of our truest every day life. A good amount of our time is spent at Magic Kingdom meeting princesses and eating Mickey snacks, that’s true too.

But this is what working mom life of a toddler looks like.

This cutie patootie will only wear a few dresses right now. And they’re all princess dresses. Her most said words are twirl, shoes and bow. So she’s dressed her part in these photos.

Today, my work led me to checking out a new location. October and November are to a photographer what March and April are to an accountant. It’s busy season! And we are feeling it. I made a commitment to document 30 minutes of our ordinary life each month along side some other wonderful photographers. This month I didn’t get to it until the last minute and that’s another part that just makes this even more real for us.

When people book with me, they can expect me to go above and beyond to make sure they have a good session where they have both a good experience and love their photos. I help with ideas for everything – location, outfits, announcements and more – to help make the session perfect.

So here we are. My cutie patootie running around in her mismatched Disney Princess outfit, helping me location scout. And my husband in the background making sure she didn’t run into water and trying to grab her attention, even if for a few seconds.

The woman who asked me about this location was looking for authentic Florida with greenery, palm trees and some water. She loves the bridge and the beauty of the location. I agree with her!
