Next senior up on the blog is Julia!  We had a great time at her deluxe (two location) session at Rollins and Kraft Azalea.  Joining her was her mom, AND her pup!  I love when seniors bring their puppies with them.  As long as someone is there to take care of the dog, and you understand that dogs can be worse to pose than toddlers! Haha!  Dad was able to swing by and pick up the pup and then the focus could go back to Julia 😉  She is gorgeous, and a total sweetheart.  Not to mention, a natural in front of the camera.  All made for a great shoot!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of our locations:

The next session up on the blog is a two-fer!  I met this sweet set of twins years ago, when their mom booked a family session.  I think they were in 5th grade at the time.  I was so honored that they wanted to come back to me this many years later for their senior photos!  Now getting to this day was challenging.  We had a couple of different reschedules due to our lovely hurricane season.  But then the waiting paid off.  We had an absolutely beautiful morning to shoot at the beach.  Yes, it is a pain to wake up so early to get ready and all the way out to the beach before sunrise, but then you get a gorgeous morning, and it all is worth it!  As a nice bonus, the waves were really kicking.  So Sloan got the crashing waves photos she wanted.

Now, as a notice to other seniors (class of 2018), if you are wanting senior photos done that are more YOU, and you aren’t on my calendar yet, NOW is the time!  Most seniors have their senior photos done before the end of the calendar year.  The reason is, the last half of the school year is crazy busy and it just flies by.  Before you know it, you are planning prom and grad parties, and you still haven’t had your portraits done yet!  I actually start NEXT year’s class in a couple of months.  Now don’t worry, I can still get you in, but I do need to get you on the schedule soon!  Email me, text me, call me, whatever.  Let’s start talking about YOUR senior photos!

Now, back to the twins!  Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

The next family sneak peek up on the blog is a very special one.  I have been friends with this couple before they were married.  They have since moved away to TN, and have adopted 3 children!  The baby is the newest to the family, so they wanted to celebrate her adoption, and come to Disney!  This was kind of a last minute idea on mom’s part, but I think she was able to pull it all off pretty well!  Being that she hasn’t had a toddler for a photoshoot before, she was a bit surprised.  I’ve photographed many toddlers, so I knew that they aren’t all about sitting nicely and smiling for the camera.  Once they can walk/run, they are out of there!  So most of the shoot is just me following them around capturing them in their natural way, and throwing family in around them, whenever possible (and shoot very quickly 😉 ).  I think I was able to get some adorable shots of her alone, her with her brothers, and the entire family.  Love them!

Here are their sneak peeks from the shoot at the Disney Resort:

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Lily!  We had such a great time on her shoot at Rollins with Lily, her mom, her sister, and her friend.  With that many girls at a shoot, we are bound to have a lot of fun!  Our fun started bright and early when the entire entourage came over to my house to meet up with one of the make up artists I work with.  After she was all glammed up, we hit the road and drove to Winter Park to do our shoot at Rollins College.  Still my most requested location!  And it is for good reason.  It is a beautiful location!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Carolina!  We had a great shoot out on Park Ave in Winter Park with her, her mom, and her sister.  The tables had turned!  Carolina joined her older sisters her “assistant” on her senior shoot with me a couple years ago, and now it was her turn!  She is such a sweetheart, and such a natural in front of the camera.  Made for a great shoot!

Here are a few sneak peeks from Carolina’s session:
