I had a great time meeting this family.  I already had met half of them, because the oldest son had his senior photos taken a few months ago!  I love when families realize the importance of getting family photos, especially after the kids are little.  Why is it that we stop getting family photos when the kids get older?  There is never a perfect time to do a family session, but before college sounds pretty close to the perfect time to me!

Here are a few sneak peeks from their session:

Time for my family (and most photographed) family!  I really look forward to these shoots.  Since I have been photographing both of the kiddos since they were born, it is so nice to catch up with them and watch them grow.  They are such great kids, with huge personalities!  We went to a location that I haven’t been to in a while, and I have to say, I was really loving it!

Happy New Year!  I am so excited to be starting another year, meeting and photographing new people!  And even better, photographing families AGAIN!  I love seeing families come back to me, wether it be annually, or after several years.  The first posting of 2018 is a family that I met a couple of years ago, when the youngest daughter was one of my seniors.  I adore her, and we have kept in touch!  Well, her siblings were all going to be in town for the holidays, so they decided they would like to do another family session!  Loved seeing them again!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our family shoot (and one with the daughter and her boyfriend 😉 ) –

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!

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 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.
