Next seniors up on the blog are twins!  I photographed their older sisters a few years back, and I was super excited to photograph these two.  They are such an amazing family, I knew we would have a great time.  They chose Rollins as their location, and they chose to share their shoot.  For twins (or triplets), I give the families the option – they can share a session (and I’ll get a few of them together too) OR they can each have their own session (and of course, will still get a few of them together).  Some opt to share, some opt to split up.  Totally up to them, and either way is great with me.  We got lots of great ones of them individually, but I really love one of the ones of them together.  Mom asked for a personality photo, and then they both immediately fell into a pose that made mom say, “yep, that’s them!”.  So that had to be one of the sneaks 😉

Here are some sneaks of two amazing seniors:

I absolutely LOVE photographing these kids!  I have been so lucky to be able to photograph the both of them since they were born!  Seeing them a couple times a year, I have not only been able to see them grow physically, but how they are growing into such neat little humans!  I just love talking with them, and hearing all about what is going on in their lives.  They are so smart and so talented, and just awesome kids!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks of the both of these amazing kids:

It has been such a wonderful year, with the best clients!  And I can’t imagine a better family to wrap it all up with.  For my last shoot of the year, I had the pleasure to photograph this beautiful family again.  And many of my seniors will recognize her.  Yes! It is the fabulous Rosie (my friend AND the best make up artist ever!).  I love photographing her beautiful family every year.

And I would like to take just a second to thank ALL of my clients, and wish all of you and your families HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and a happy and healthy new year.  See you in 2019!

Next family up on the blog, is the family of a past senior!  I love when families come back to see me.  It’s great to catch up AND get them some new beautiful photos!  Even though I am pretty sure, this was not tops on the boys’ lists to do, they were great sports (and I think that they even, maybe, had a little bit of fun too!  It’s so great that all of the family wanted to do this for mom.

We had a great time on our shoot at Kraft Azalea.  It is a beautiful park, however at this time of year, it is packed solid with lots of families getting their Christmas pictures!  Thankfully, we can all work well around each other so everyone gets beautiful images 😉  Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

‘Tis the season for family photos!  Now, not all of my family clients want sneak peeks, because they want to save them to send out to family.  And that is totally understandable and no problem!  This family wanted to do family photos to have new and updated family photos, not just for a holiday card.  I have photographed one of their daughters for her senior photos this year, and then mom decided it was time to do a whole family session.  LOVE THAT!!  She wanted to do it at the beach.  I think the kids would have been happier if it was the beach in the afternoon, not at sunrise ;), but they were great sports and woke up super early.  And we were so lucky with a gorgeous sunrise that morning!  (That part I can’t control, so I am always super excited when it all works out like this). All said and done, I’m sure all 3 took naps that day, knowing that they made their parents happy with some beautiful new family photos!

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!

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!
