Squeezing in one last family before the holidays!  And what a fun shoot this was!  Yes, I was nervous when I heard they wanted two horses and a dog in the family photo, I will admit that.  But honestly, it couldn’t have gone smoother!  We had extra hands (and an awesome sounds app) to help the horses look, and the dog could have been a model!  He had no problem staying still and looking very handsome for the photos.  So, animals all good, check!  Now to the family.  All gorgeous and happy, check!  End result, a fantastic family photo with the ENTIRE family looking perfect! I had a great time meeting and working with this lovely family.  A GREAT way to end shoots before Christmas!

Here are a few sneak peeks from their shoot:

I love this next family up for sneak peeks!  (Some of my seniors may recognize the mom, she is one of my fabulous make up artists.)  This family is so gorgeous and so much fun to shoot.  First of all, don’t they look like they are straight out of a magazine?  Their outfits never disappoint!  The kiddos are growing up and every time, just more and more fun to photograph.  The little boy started making their weird face when I would click the shutter.  I asked him what the face?!  It was his emoji face! It was so funny, I wanted to share that as one of their sneak peeks.  The little girl is so beautiful, and loves being in front of the camera.  She was even talking about her senior photo session (she is in 5th grade, btw)!  Love this family!

Here are just a few sneak peeks to hold them over until the rest are ready!

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:

These kiddos, if you have followed my blog, you see all the time!  I have been photographing this brother/sister team since they were born.  And I love them!  It has been so amazing seeing them in my lens 1-2 times every year.  What will be super cool, is when they are old enough for their senior photos.  THEN I will feel super old 😉

Next family up on the blog was so much fun to photograph!  Mom had been planning this session for months and Dad was just so happy to be surrounded by his beautiful girls.  I really love photographing families with older kids.  (Of course I love the little ones too 😉 ) But when I have the opportunity to photograph families with older kids, often times, they haven’t done this in many years.  And I promise, it is SO much easier when they are older ;).

Next family up on the blog, is one of my senior rep’s family!  She was so excited to have photos done with her family.  I love photographing senior’s families!  I feel that I get to know the seniors pretty well, it is fun to get the rest of the fam in front of my lens.  They selected Kraft Azalea, which is a pretty popular family shoot location.  It has great light and lots of trees.

Next family session up on the blog, is a super fun family.  I just photographed the oldest for her senior photos.  I love when I have the opportunity to photograph seniors’ entire family!  This family decided they wanted beach photos.  No problem!  Sunrise is early, but so worth it!  We had a beautiful morning to shoot this beautiful family.

Next post up on the blog is NOT a senior!  (A couple of former seniors though)  Family session time!  ‘Tis the season!  I’ve known and worked with this family for years.  But it has been far too long since they have been in front of my camera.  The “kids” were great, and agreed to do some updated photos for mom.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot at Rollins:

My favorite little cuties are back in front of my camera!  I love that I get to document them growing up every 6 months.  They are such fun kids, and it is a blast watching them grow up right before my lens 😉
