Paden Family

Family Session  |  Disney’s Boardwalk – Orlando, FL  | September 2017

It can’t be overstated just how amazing it is to watch our SBP families grow.  You may recognize this dancing cutie pie (and her parents) — they’ve made a few appearances on our blog in the past! It’s a double bonus that this sweet family loves WDW as much as we do, and of course meeting on property for their family session was an obvious “heck yes!” 🙂  I’m already looking forward to the next time I can get this family of 3 (soon to be 4!) in front of the camera. ❤

Baby Marjorie

Newborn Session  |  Lakeland, FL  |  June 2017

One thing is for certain when it comes to little Miss M. . . she’s going to grow up with no shortage of love and attention! Mom and dad both come from incredibly warm and close knit families and also always seem to be surrounded by plenty of friends from church and work. Plus when you’re this cute, you don’t have to work too hard to turn heads! It was a real treat to capture mom, dad, and baby at home especially incorporating so many of their ideas and passions into the shoot. With their artistic genes (Mom’s a professional dancer & dad’s a professional musician), we expect great things from this crew of three and can’t wait to watch their family grow!

* Special thanks to our partner EliFab Accessories for the adorable blue and crystal headbands Miss Marjorie was rocking for her session!*

Carlos & Luisa

Maternity Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  April 2017

So I have to confess that the Alfond Inn is quickly becoming one of my new favorite places to shoot, especially on days when the Florida sky threatens rain.  I’ve driven by for years on my way too and from home, but until recently hadn’t spent much time inside. From the constantly changing art on the walls to the beautiful garden spaces, the Alfond is great for a weekend getaway or a quick maternity session.  These two were super flexible and adorable — you can just see how excited they are about the newest addition to their family! Congratulations — we can’t wait to meet your little one in a few months!

Rapisarda Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  December 2016

I had an absolute blast with this family.   🙂 They have simply the best energy, and from our very first emails back and forth with mom it was obvious that we were going to have fun together.  My favorite part of this shoot was how much personality their three kiddos have; so much personality in fact, that narrowing down their final proofs was nearly impossible. I’ve got my fingers crossed that our next session will be even longer! sbp_minisession_2016-1_blog_blog

I think I even found a new assistant — little Dylan took this shot all on his own! 🙂 I love it when kids have questions about the camera and want to know more about photography ❤

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2016

This little man is going to be stealing hearts all over town; he certainly walked away with mine  ❤  It’s impossible not to love this little family, and it’s obvious how much they love one another.  I’m excited to watch this family grow in the future. It was an honor to capture their first official family portraits!

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!
