This beautiful mama and her adorable baby girl were just so wonderful! Katie's home is absolutely gorgeous and her style really spoke to my bohemian, beach-loving heart! We were lucky to have her mother with us for the photos. She was a godsend, whipping out ALL the baby loving nursery rhymes! I wish you could have seen the three of us singing and dancing to make Blakely giggle. It was quite a sight! Some of my favorite photos actually occurred when baby girl was just done. She was so tired and just wanted to sleep. I had the opportunity to shoot through Katie slowly rocking her sweet daughter to sleep. This may not typically be something you would think of as photo worthy, but I know I wish I had some pretty photographs from when my children still needed that comfort to go to sleep. These times when they are so little are fleeting. I am truly so grateful for those quiet moments I was able to capture and I hope that you love them too!
Little girls twirling in whimsical circles, waiting to be tossed high into the sky. Kisses and snuggles fill the air with the melodious sound of children's laughter. Bright sunshine pouring through moss covered branches like a warm hug. Nature's fresh, new blooms bring the promise of longer, heat filled days. This dreamy, pastel color pallet only adds to the beautiful transition of seasons.
This is seriously the cutest family and they are so sweet together. I just loved shooting this session, right here in College Park! I had too many favorites, but tried to narrow them down. I hope you enjoy!

I think I say it every time, but 6 months is really such a cute age. Unsteadily sitting up, drool filled smiles, and so much squishy goodness. This little red haired boy is a dream, outfitted in the most adorable clothes. Where might one find such outfits? From the splendid boutique shops of Spain. Sorry! His grandmother is from Spain and she really knows where to shop!
Side parts and standing up are some of the many milestones this little charmer has achieved since I saw him last. He was just a tiny newborn then. I was so excited to see Auggie and his sweet momma again. I really cannot get over how quickly time goes by. Below are a few of my many favorites. If you're anything like me, these images might have you feeling like you just want to squeeze those chunky baby cheeks!
Baby Camden surprised everyone when he arrived quite a bit early. Weighing in at just over 5lbs, it reminded me of how small my first baby was when he was born. We were terrified to put him in the carseat because the buckle was larger than his tiny face. His 8th birthday is quickly approaching and I find myself having a hard time believing it. It is almost painful to know that many years have already passed. He is also huge now! These babies of ours will surely grow, it seems to happen overnight. We spend these sleep deprived days staring at the tiny new human that fills us with such unfathomable love, hoping we are equipped to take care of this sweet little soul. Snuggle them in tightly, bask in that delightful newborn smell, and savor those little newborn noises. One day we wake up and realize they are not babies any longer.

I find myself over-documenting this season as she's the only one left with me at home and I know it will go by ever too quickly. I suppose it really is the simplest of activities that delight these little souls. We can do the most ordinary, daily tasks together and the day is still full of excitement and wonder because all she wants is for me to be present. Those needs are simple. She wants my time, undivided attention and maybe a few snuggles. Keeping that in mind, I'm learning to make the boring tasks more memorable. It's nice to drink in these toddler nuances for a few moments and remember all that is truly good in this life we live.
The new baby that instantly creates a little family of your own. The first snowfall that beautifully covers everything in powdery white, shimmering in the sunlight. There is something so magical about the changing of seasons.
Meet Colin Patrick, 2 months new. He is the happiest little guy with the cutest head of hair! I love the little blond streak through it! He was completely content being outside during his first time seeing snow fall, wide-eyed and excited just staring up at his parents. Nostalgic for those days when it felt like hours flew by and all we did was stare at our new baby!

Days and nights blur together.
Kisses on squishy faces
That change almost daily.
Tiny backs filled with rolls of skin,
Folded up baby legs
Molded to your side
Clinging to you at all hours
Night and day.
Little fingers holding on tight
Gentle hum of the sound of their sleep
Sweet baby smell
One moment they look at you
Finally locking eyes
Through the fuzziness,
We try to remember it all.
Our babies will grow and change,
They all do.
But for now, we hold on tight
To these tiny little bodies
Fit perfectly into our hands.
Below are a few of my favorites from baby Owen's sweet session!
The coziest little 6 month session. I'm reliving this season in Buffalo through all these sessions and blocking out the fact that it is 85 degrees here in Orlando right now! This week we have a cold front too! Haha.
6 months is such a cute and cuddly age, definitely one of my favorite ages! Lorenzo is the most lovable little boy who just adores his Mommy and Daddy. Oh, how they can make him giggle and flash those tiny new teeth! He is constantly moving and smiling, right up until he falls asleep. Lorenzo is one charming little guy and you can just feel how much joy he brings to this family!!
This family is just so sweet. I'm so glad it worked out that I was able to photograph them will I was back in Buffalo. They were all troopers when the weather suddenly turned on us and we had only a tiny patch of trees with changing leaves to use as our autumn backdrop. The wind decided to come out of every direction, so we sought shelter in between some willow trees. I just love seeing the changing of all seasons here. Still green weeping willows, warm days turning cool. Gray skies and spurts of vibrant colored leaves. Baby Jack, just beginning to walk and his sister stating he resembles Frankenstein. The changing of seasons in nature and in life. Please take the time to scroll down. Baby Jack's legs will not let you down! Dinner rolls for days and I could not be more obsessed!
Then there were 3.
It's amazing how much can change in just one year. Last summer, I was photographing Caitlin and Mike at their wedding in downtown Buffalo. This year, I flew in from my new home of Orlando and, as luck would have it, was able to photograph them as a family with their new baby girl! I truly feel so grateful to be able to follow along on Caitlin and Mike's journey together and document these milestones as they happen. Little Miss Harper is simply adorable and I couldn't be happier for them!!
