Shah Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2016

This family❤ They could quit their day jobs and become full-time models in a heartbeat! As I’m sure you can tell, they were incredibly relaxed and fun to work with, so my job during our session together was a breeze.  I’ve had so many families this fall with brothers  fairly close in age – like these two – and they’re especially dear to my heart because they remind me of my own two younger siblings (who are not so little anymore at 20 and 24).  I’m so glad this crew decided to share a little time with me; I hope I’ll see them again very soon!

Patel Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2016

I have had the best looking, most relaxed, truly incredible mini-session clients so far this year! This family was no exception — what a treat it was to work with them.  As you can tell from the quick snapshot of their session here, they were happy to hug it out and make silly faces whenever I asked which of course made me love them all the more. Hopefully these boys never lose their love of hugs or Ninja Turtles and are always the best of friends.🙂  I can’t wait to see how quickly they grow from here!

Baby Harper

Newborn Session  |   Kissimee, FL  | July 2016

This post is a total overshare, but I just couldn’t help myself!  Too many favorites, and I just love this little family.  You might recognize them as they’re often featured here on our blog, and this is the most recent addition to their family.  Baby Harper is just the sweetest, and it won’t be long before she’s doing her best to keep up with her energetic big brother.  I have a feeling he’s going to be her protector and a pretty great playmate.  Thanks to mom and dad for trusting me year after year to capture so much of your beautiful story❤

Porcuna Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2016

Mini sessions this fall have been so good to me so far! Meeting this family has definitely been one of the highlights; their two littles were so full of energy and curiosity that I got plenty of splendid candid shots.  Their session was also particularly sweet since it was the first time they’d had family photos taken since dad came back from overseas. <3  I only hope they’re as in love with these images as I am!

Jamie & Brad

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  October 2016

These two…. there’s not much to say except, they were so so easy to shoot with, and their little furbaby Georgia was absolutely the star of the show. Working pets into sessions is always fun and often challenging, but this little lady was pretty spectacular — and those ears! Jamie & Brad didn’t need a whole lot of direction or input from me; they were natural and relaxed from the get go which made my job a total breeze.  I can’t wait to work with this little family again in the future — thanks for making such gorgeous images you guys!

Sperling Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  October 2016

I met this lovely family for their mini-session in gorgeous downtown Winter Park, and we were blessed with absolutely perfect fall weather on the day after a hurricane blew right up the eastern coast.  The littlest member of this family was a bit shy, so I really had to work to get even a few real smiles. But can I share a secret with you little Miss A?  Stolen smiles are my most favorite. I only wish our time together hadn’t been quite so short!

Closs Family

Family Session  |   Mount Pleasant, MI  |  June 2016

This family… they made my job so easy!  Though they were quick to take direction and happy to give me big beautiful smiles on command, this crew would have been delighted to spend the whole session joking and laughing with one another as if I wasn’t even there.  Obviously we’re big believers in having family portraits taken often to capture the changes as little ones grow up and families evolve, but we also love that the hour or two you spend with your photographer is an opportunity to preserve all the laughs and smiles and just what makes your relationships so special year to year.  I absolutely loved seeing this family enjoy their time together — it certainly shows in their photos. Do me a favor and blow a few of these up to hang on your walls, okay guys?
