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!*

Jess + Brittany

Wedding  |  Orlando, FL  |  December 2017

This sweet, intimate ceremony was our final booking of 2017, and what a wonderful way to close out another year.  Jess and Brittany are one of the sweetest couples ever, and I absolutely loved their UP inspired wedding theme.  We had a blast shooting around beautiful Lake Eola park in Downtown Orlando, complete with obligatory swan pics! We also made a stop at the Orlando mural for some epically fun shots.  Congratulations Jess and Brittany and thanks for making us a part of your special day. ❤

Droz Family – Disney Vacation Session

Family Session  |  Orlando, FL  |  December 2017

It’s probably no secret that we’re big Disney fans.  In fact, besides warm sunny winters, having a WDW annual pass is one of my favorite things about living in the Sunshine state.  There’s something extra magical about a family portrait session while on vacation in the place where dreams come true (*hint hint all you future Disney vacationers!).  This sweet mom and dad were celebrating their anniversary and the holidays all at once, and I’m so thrilled they decided to mark the occasion with a family session. ❤  If you haven’t strolled around the grounds at Disney’s Polynesian resort, you’re missing out — I mean, those palm trees! Thanks for making us a part of your vacation Droz family, and we can’t wait to see you again soon. 🙂

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! ❤

Holiday Minis 2017

Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions  |  Winter Park, FL  |  2017

Our Holiday Minis this year were such a success, and we loved meeting so many new friends! While we could easily share ten times as many images from these fun sessions, here are just a few groupings from some of these gorgeous families.  We’re already planning even more dates/times for 2018 Holiday Minis including an early bird special pricing option, so keep an eye out as we move closer to the fall. Until then have a great new year!

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!
