Mahay Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  December 2016

Holiday outfits and two adorable sisters makes for pretty easy work, and there isn’t much else to say about this beautiful family.  Our session was quick, but definitely not lacking in cheer! I hope I’ll get to see these two little ones as they grow — I have a feel they’re going to be peas in a pod.

Murray Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  December 2016

Little ones always make a session even more entertaining and eventful, and little miss was no exception on this day. I loved having this lovely crew in front of my camera not only for the spunky energy of their youngest member, but also because they were just fun! We soaked up some gorgeous evening light and got some really nice images in the process. 🙂

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 ❤

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!

Jamie & Brad

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  October 2016

These two…. there’s not much to say except, they were so so easy to shoot with, and their little furbaby Georgia was absolutely the star of the show. Working pets into sessions is always fun and often challenging, but this little lady was pretty spectacular — and those ears! Jamie & Brad didn’t need a whole lot of direction or input from me; they were natural and relaxed from the get go which made my job a total breeze.  I can’t wait to work with this little family again in the future — thanks for making such gorgeous images you guys!

Brendan & Brett

Wedding  |  Kalamazoo, MI  |  June 2016

What’s not to love about a wedding full of such beautiful details, in a beautiful setting, with a beautiful couple?  The correct answer is nothing, and I wasn’t the only one loving every moment of Brendan and Brett’s gorgeous day.  These two are the epitome of a perfect compliment as a couple, and it shows clearly in their photos. They were absolutely enveloped by the warmth of their friends and family from parents and siblings to extended family to a large contingent from their alma mater. I don’t doubt that these two will continue to cultivate a wonderful community and beautiful relationship for many many years to come. I’m just honored that I could be there to watch them start this newest chapter together!

Nick & Carrie

Wedding  |  Mount Pleasant, MI  |  June 2016

Though almost all weddings are wonderful and a blessing to be a part of, this particular day was especially sweet for me. The weather was beautiful (if a little hot), the details and decor were lovely, the guests and bridal party were lively and fun, but the real joy I found in this day was watching one of my oldest college friends marry the love of his life.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and watching this couple grow in their relationship from the beginning, and I am so very happy that they’re ready to take on this new life adventure together.  These two laugh often both at and with one another; a sure sign that they have a long and very happy future ahead. I, for one, am excited to see what that future may hold!

Congratulations and thank you for trusting me to be a part of such a beautiful celebration! ❤IMG_0907_blog-1_blog
