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 😉

Here are a few sneak peeks from their shoot:

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:

I was so happy to finally get the opportunity to photograph this sweet family.  We have been rescheduling for months! But the wait was worth it.  We had a beautiful morning in Winter Park.  And the family was as sweet as could be.

I got a call to do a family shoot last week.  A entire family, including the dogs.  And if you have dogs, you know, they are our kids.  Unfortunately, the puppy (ALL dogs are puppies in my eyes, no matter how old they are) is getting older and isn’t doing very well.  The family wanted to have some photos of him, as well as take him out and give him some great last days.  As hard as it is, I know they will be glad to have these.  You can tell how much little Joel is loved, and he could feel it too.

It is time again for my favorite family!  Not only are they friends of mine, but they appreciate how important photos are.  They come to me every 6 months, to make sure they have their children’s childhood documented!  The kids are so used to their sessions, it isn’t a chore.  We have fun, they act silly, and they will have beautiful photographs all thru their young years. Another thing I love, the parents love to have something in the photos that is totally “them” for that period of time.  Could be a major toothless grin or could be their favorite sport at the time.  For this shoot, it is the boy’s orange Crocs.  Apparently, those are his “thing” right now.  A little too small for him now, but he still loves them and squeezes his feet into them.  So, instead of making him wear shoes to match his outfit, they want those orange plastic shoes to be a part of it.  That is what he loves right now, so why not have it a part of his photos?  Years from now, he will look back on those photos, and hopefully laugh at the memory of his orange Crocs.

While I still mostly photograph seniors, ’tis the season for family sessions!  And I absolutely love it when I get my senior’s family in front of my camera.  Many are seeing a family session is long overdue, and they need to get in a shoot before the kiddos leave for college.  And let me tell you, if you have high schoolers especially, it is so much easier getting a family photo now that they are big kids  (compared to when they were little kids).  Don’t let the time slip by, you will love looking back on your family photos for years to come!

This is the family of not only a couple of my current senior clients, but also their triplet sister, my rep!  They are a great family!  We have lots and lots of photos of the kids, but mom wanted some of the entire family too.  Even their pup!  There was so much activity going on in that park that day, the pup was far more interested in everything else going on, instead of boring me with the camera.  With dogs, you never can tell if they are going to cooperate.  Thankfully, we managed a few where puppy was looking and “smiling” at me.
