Nicole – 1st Birthday

Children’s Portrait Session  |  Kissimmee, FL  |  September 2017

First birthdays are special.  For parents, it’s a chance to reflect on the joys and challenges of the past 12 months.  For little ones, it’s an introduction to birthday cake and the happy arrival of new treats and toys.  But for photographers, it’s a treasured moment — a chance to capture the budding personality and infinite possibility of a still new life.  Also, it’s just a darn cute age!

Rodriguez Family

Family Session  |  Winter Park, FL  |  July 2017

I could have spent all day with this family in front of the camera because goodness can they work it, and they’re just sweet as can be on top of that.  I really can’t wait to see this adorable crew again soon.  In the meantime, we’ll just be here scrolling through their gallery obsessively. 🙂

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 ❤

Ransom Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2016

We see a lot of beautiful smiles, but this little guy may have the winner! Mom was the best at getting him to open up, and he wasn’t the least bit interested in my camera, but we still managed to get a few great family shots.  These guys were gorgeous and so fun to work with throughout their session. I hope a few of these end up hanging on their walls.

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 ❤
