So happy I got to see this awesome family almost 1 year after our newborn session with Penny when we first met. The family was living in northern Africa the last year for the time and came home to Florida for a visit. So thankful we were able to squeeze in a family session before their next big move to Paris!
For a first time mother, nursing your new little miracle can be emotional. Sweetness and unconditional love tugging at your heart, but also the deepest pain a woman could endure. It is another miracle and gift to see that nursing relationship blossom into restful, playful, and joyful moments. It becomes a dance orchestrated by your favorite little person, an artform stroked by the hands that reached to your heart from the inside out. Motherhood <3
Meet Grant, he's sweet, oh so smiley and such a chill baby. We had lots of quiet moments, I think he really enjoyed his session as much as I did! I have this thing for gingers, since my own 3 year old is one, so I was so excited to see the reddish hue in his hair. His mom and dad are really cool, and it's been really fun seeing them throughout the year for their baby announcement and belly photos. It was such an exciting day when I finally got to meet him! Looking forward to document some of his milestones in the coming year.
Just six days after our maternity session, baby Reagan came into the world! She was a dream to photograph and I just loved capturing all her sweet little features and details. Mom and dad wanted baby's gender to be a surprise at birth, so the nursery had the cutest gender neutral owl theme for their baby. It didn't take long for little Miss Reagan's lovely presence to complete the room.
The weather was nice, so we had some time to go outside for a garden basket shot and on the family pool patio. I jumped at the opportunity to snuggle her and broke in mama's new Baby K'tan (picture at end of blog post!)...babywearing is a weakness of mine, and I'm always happy assist new mother's in any way I can help. So many gorgeous images were captured, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them. Thank you so much to this beautiful young couple for welcoming me into their home and letting me document this precious time.
I love seeing Logan and Lauren for their birthday photos. It's hard for me not to smile big when I see them!

Your baby will experience everything for the first time only once. There is no greater joy in being a parent and seeing your child's eyes as they discover the world. I was so happy I was asked to document Aaron's first beach experience. Watching the sea foam tickle his fingers and toes and hearing those giggles....melt my heart!
I adored meeting this family! Their warm and happy spirits made the beach an even nicer experience. Before leaving, I was gifted with the yummiest box of homemade organic maple sweetened banana muffins. I really have the most thoughtful clients that know the way to my heart <3 It's always a plus to meet other families that are into healthy eating and like minded.
It was a yucky afternoon with wind, grey skies and a drizzle. I was ready to reschedule our session, but this gorgeous mama brought her sweet handsome boys and some sunshine. Crazy Florida weather maybe?
It was so great meeting this first time expectant couple. I'm glad we were able to capture one of the cutest baby bumps I've ever seen...she was due any day! The sunset was perfect and complimented her natural glow.
