I first met this wonderful family when their little girl Ellie was born and now they have a second little girl on the way! One of my favorite parts of my job is being invited back in to see my newborn clients again. Ellie has grown into a funny, sweet little ham who was happy to be in front of my camera but only if she could do her own poses. Her parent's were relaxed and let her enjoy herself so the whole family was really a pleasure to shoot. No stress, just beautiful family photos before the family gets a little bigger. And can I just say, look at that adorable baby bump! I can't wait to meet their new little one when she makes her appearance around Christmas and capture some photos of the proud new big sister.
If you or someone you know has a baby on the way, head over to my contact page and send me a message. The months of November and December are already fully booked with January heading that way so don't wait!
Happy first birthday Francesco! This little guy was such a sweetie and so are his parents and big brother. Francesco was feeling a little bit shy but he warmed up after awhile. He is much younger than his older brother and came along just when his parent's were sure their baby days were over. He has brought so much joy to their family, you can really see it in their eyes. In order to celebrate, his parents decided to recreate some photos that his brother Giovanni took when he was one. Francesco had other ideas in mind but we managed to capture a few. Including a few shots containing the same hat Giovanni wore in his photos, unfortunately Francesco's head is a little bigger than his brother's so we sat it next to him.
I can't believe this boy is not a baby anymore! I've been photographing Bubba since he was a newborn and since the last time I saw him he has definitely made the transition from baby to toddler. Since little man is at that age where he is always on the go we decided to photograph him doing what he does best, playing. As soon as I walked in to his backyard he started running around showing me all his toys and his favorite things to do. At the same time he was being such a little ham smiling for the camera. Not only was it great to celebrate another year in Bubba's life, but this family also had another big deal to celebrate. Mary, bubba's grandmother beat breast cancer this year!
My own littlest baby is one year old! I just can't believe how fast the last year has flown by. I'm amazed every day by this spunky little girl. She's absolutely fearless and loves everyone she meets. She brings joy to all of us around her, especially her big brother and sister who absolutely adore her. Watching their little faces light up when she smiles at them or laughs when they're silly makes my day every time. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for my little baby, I just wish she would stay a baby just a little bit longer.
I can't believe little Declan is already six months old! It seems like i just shot his newborn photos yesterday. This little man is so sweet and I love getting to see him. Declan is learning to sit up and enjoying trying out solid food and showing off his tummy time skills. Although he didn't enjoy changing clothes he cooperated great for his photo shoot and gave me lots of sweet little baby smiles. I'm so lucky that I get to watch this little guy grow up.
my littlest baby is nine months old already! Where is the time going? It seems like just yesterday that I was taking nine month photos of her big brother and sister. I always try to use Myla's shoots to try out things that I've been wanting to do but haven't had a client to try it on yet. So for this shoot I decided to try out a milk bath and I absolutely LOVE IT! There's just something so dreamy about the flowers and the milky water. Just perfect. It took a bit of set-up and the behind the scenes was a bit of a mess but I would definitely do it again.
AJ is turning one! I had such a great time photographing this sweet little man. Not only do I love to set up a fun theme, like AJ's cute fishing themed set, but he is just such a cutie. As soon as his mom walked up to to introduce herself AJ reached his arms out to me so that he could meet me too. Although the Florida heat and humidity was in classic form for our session I had a great time getting to know this cute little guy and his parents. First birthdays are so important and special, I love that I get to be a part of such great milestones. Happy First Birthday AJ!
Its rare to see a couple who seem to go together as well as Monique and Terrence do. From the moment I arrived to photograph Monique and her girls getting ready until the end of the night there was not one tense moment. And it wasn't just the two of them, everyone around them seemed so genuinely happy for them and ready to celebrate their love. After a sweet outdoor ceremony where Monique and Terrence recited their own vows we headed inside the Rusty Pelican for a fun reception with lots of dancing and laughter. I hope that the bride and groom look back on this day as just the first of many happy days as husband and wife and are always as comfortable together and as surrounded by love and support as they were on this day. Congratulations you too!
I love every sweet little baby I get to photograph but there is something very special about photographing a friend's baby. In this case, its the baby of two close friends that I have known for fourteen years! Little Declan decided to surprise his parents three weeks early and weighed in at 5lbs 12oz. He is just the sweetest most prefect sleepy baby who wants to do nothing but eat and be held. Congratulations to Declan's mommy and daddy welcome to the club.
