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 😉
Here are a few sneak peeks from their session:
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.
Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:
It’s much more common to have family portraits taken when the kids are little. But why not when they are older? Or better yet, when everyone is grown up?! This family session was such a fun one for me to photograph. Three grown up sisters with their mom. What an amazing gift to have?! Beautiful photos of everyone! Even though they all have their own families, to go back to the original women in the family was such a great idea. And let me tell you, all 4 of these beautiful women were so much fun to be around! Yes, margaritas before the session *may* have had a tiny bit to do with how silly they were. But I think they all were just having a good time being together.

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.

I was so excited to photograph this sweet family. I met mom and oldest daughter for her senior photos earlier in the summer. And they were so great to work with! So, naturally, I couldn’t wait to meet the rest of the family to get some beautiful family photos for them. We shot at the same place as we did her senior photos (Rollins). It is a great location for pretty much any age group! Must be why it is one of my most requested locations.
Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:
I was so excited to shoot this family! The daughter was one of my first seniors eight or so years ago. And I was so touched when she reached out to me a while ago saying that she and her brother wanted to do something special for their mom. The grown up kids wanted to give mom a family photo session as a gift. Such a thoughtful and sweet gift! I did tell her, it is best if you tell her about the shoot ahead of time (speaking from a mom’s perspective here), not just have her show up and “SURPRISE! Photo time!” We (moms) absolutely will want the shoot, especially if the kids were the ones who planned it. But we also want to make sure that we are photo ready, and it is done at a good time for us, so we feel and look our best. So, that is exactly what the did. The kids gifted her the session to be held whenever she wanted it. And let me tell you, if you haven’t had family photos since your kids were little, it is SO MUCH easier now that they are older! No need to bribe the little ones to sit still, no need to force them to dress nice, just make it a day or afternoon together, photos and then breakfast! So if you have been putting it off for a while, now is as good of a time as any!

I love this family. I have been working with them for a few years now. Starting with senior photos, and then another round of senior photos (as a rep this time), and now finally family photos! And now that I have had the pleasure of meeting Grandma too, I can see where all of these ladies get their beauty from (and maybe even a little of their sass). Dad definitely has his hands full with this group! 😉
Here are some sneak peeks from their shoot:
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 may be a little biased, I have to say, my newest little nephew is the most precious, cutest little thing! I flew out to Seattle last week to meet the little guy, and I fell in love. Not only is he beautiful, but he is the best, most easy going baby ever! Don’t know what my sister and her husband did to deserve such a perfect new baby, but it must have been something big! And while I was there, of course, there had to be photos taken. I couldn’t bring all of my gear, so I had to make due with what I could pack on a plane. But I brought enough to get some beautiful photos of this precious baby. I wanted to share a few sneak peeks (and there will be lots more posted on Facebook, so make sure you check back to see those later!).
