Prather Family

Family Session  |  Winter Park, FL  | October 2017

With a family of 7, a sense of humor is a must, and as you can probably tell, mom, dad, and all 5 kiddos in this crew have plenty of that!  We had a such a blast getting the Prathers in front of the camera last fall — they are as colorful and bold in personality as their photos are in color and smiles.  They’re also easily in our top 5 favorite family funny face photos (*say that 5 times fast), and we’re hoping for a repeat engagement again soon to check in on how much taller these kiddos have gotten!

Baby Oskar

Newborn Session  |  Winter Park, FL  | March 2018

This little guy, his adorable big sister, and the rest of the family don’t need a lot of preamble.  Baby Oskar is absolutely precious, and hearing sister Ruby tell him to “smile” for the camera just about melted my heart.  If all babies were as tolerant as this dude, every newborn session would be a complete breeze. These two are going to be peas in a pod and a whole lot of fun for everyone following along at home.

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. ❤

Julian – Class of 2018

Senior Session  |  Saint Cloud, FL  |  February 2018

Every year I’m amazed that the class of 20XX can be graduating already! And yet, time marches on pausing for no man (and all that). It was a treat to meet Julian and his mom for a quick senior session this year.  Julian had picked a spot with one of his favorite trees complete with plenty of Spanish moss.  Congratulations to Julian and the class of 2018!

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! ❤
