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!*

Carter Family

Family Session  |  Winter Park, FL  |  October 2017

Just looked at the list of sessions we haven’t blogged from 2017, and it’s crazy long (and also crazy good)! So, in the spirit of catching up little by little, we’re sharing this gorgeous family from last fall.  Liz and her girls showed up in perfectly coordinated (also adorable) outfits, and I knew this was going to be a shoot with some stunning images! It was a lot of fun capturing this sweet family in downtown Winter Park — home to a few of our absolute favorite locations — and as expected their images are beautiful.  ❤

Jessica + Lillian — CheerLyfe

Portfolio Session  |   Kissimmee, FL  |  December 2017

We are so excited to share this super fun winter session!  Jessica and Lillian are the epitome of Generation Z — energetic, moving a million miles a minute always, and completely plugged in to their social media.  These two also have an incredible, and totally of this era, story — they met through Instagram because of their mutual love for CheerLyfe (an online retail line that strives to “deliver the most stylish apparel at the highest quality to cheerleaders, dancers, families and the industry professionals” and recruits spokesmodels like these two to promote CheerLyfe products through their personal social media channels) and have since become the best of friends.  The day of our session was actually their very first time meeting in person as they live in completely different states (Florida —-> North Carolina), so that made the whole shoot even more momentous.

We asked the girls how they first connected and feel about each other, and their responses were almost identical:

Jessica said,

We both absolutely loved CheerLyfe. . . from there we hit it off. We text and FaceTime every single day.  She is my best friend in the entire world.  what I love most about her is her kindness.  She is the sweetest person I know.  she has a wonderful sense of humor, and I am grateful to be her friend!

and Lillian,

We met through CheerLyfe and just started talking and it turned into everyday FaceTimes! I love how sweet and kind she is, and I know she would do anything for me!

We had a blast meeting these two and are already looking forward to future collaborations (*hint hint) as they continue to build both their friendship and individual platforms! ❤

Mirella + Luis

Lifestyle Session  |  Park Ave – Winter Park, FL  |  May 2017

It’s so great to work with clients who are willing to have a little fun during their session.  It’s also a treat to capture some less than stuffy head shots for professionals in all fields.  Mirella and Luis contacted us to get some updated shots for their new website, and I certainly hope we’ll get to work with them again very soon! Also, how great is downtown Winter Park? 🙂

Caleb – Class of 2017

Senior Session  |   Alfond Inn – Winter Park, FL  |  May 2017

It’s hard to believe that the school year is already over and another group of seniors will soon be off to college and jobs and life beyond high school!  We’re just glad we got to meet a few of them, like Caleb, before they branch out into new awesome adventures.

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!

Kelly

Head Shot Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  April 2017

Not sure how we always seem to end up with the sweetest clients, but Kelly is just one more gem we were so lucky to shoot with recently.  A small business owner (aka Bad Ass Boss Lady) who recently struck out on her own, Kelly was as lovely in person as she looks in all these shots. You can check out her LuLaRoe shop online — I know I can’t wait to make my first order!
