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

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.
Nothing is more exciting than telling your loved ones that your whole world is changing in the most amazing way possible! I loved meeting Jennifer and Matthew, they are so cute in every way, and excited to share their news. Looking forward to documenting their growing baby belly and little boy when he arrives this summer!
This was my very first time meeting these sisters, and within minutes of meeting them, there was an instant connection. Not only are they so obviously beautiful, but they're so full of life, energy and most entertaining! I heard about their classroom pet "Sleepy" the sleeping dog, their favorite movies, and their dance offs. The sun was setting, the lake shimmered, and the girls glowed. All is good both in front and behind the camera :)
This family session was amazing! Everything about it was perfect and I had so much fun setting up. Originally, this was going to be just a tea party photo session with sweet little London and a few of her closest stuffed friends. However, the family just found out they are expecting baby #2, so tea time also became a good time to get mom and dad in there and make an announcement. I'd like to take credit for the adorable chalkboard framed sign, but London's mommy made it and was the mastermind behind the setup and everything turned out beautifully! I really do love seeing a vision come to life and my greatest reward is to know I've captured it.
After we had tea, we walked around and the sun was just setting, so we had lovely skies for some family photos. I'm so excited in doing this mama's maternity photos this fall, she is so stunning, and will be absolutely glowing when her baby belly is nice is and full.
One of my favorite pieces of the tea party was a vintage Cabbage Patch doll. As an 80's child, I totally appreciate those dolls and have a few of my own stashed away. Our kids may never know how awesome our toys were back then, but glad the internet makes everything so accessible so we can show them or even find some.
