I was so happy to have the opportunity to connect with this crew while they were in town. They are really just the sweetest family with 5 little girls, looking forward to a visit to Disney World. We ended up with the perfect evening after some afternoon thunderstorms. I really had so much fun at this session and experimenting a bit!
I really cannot even put into words how happy I am for this couple. It was a long road for them to get to this point, but dreams come true. As expected, they are absolutely enamored with their new baby boy. Sure, at one month, the newborn schedule has changed many times, there are sleepless nights, cluster feeding and no rest for the weary just when you finally have the weekend to relax, but one sweet coo or tiny smile makes every chaotic moment worth it. It all goes by in the blink of an eye and each stage will be looked back upon with a certain fondness. Our babies grow and change so quickly and I am incredibly thankful I was able to meet this sweet boy and make beautiful memories together. Baby Riyaan, you are such a gift!
There is nothing quite like a little mommy and me time, especially when you have more than one child. An hour together is heavenly, just the two of you being able to spend a few moments of uninterrupted time is special. I believe this is what makes a milestone session. Babies have a special bond with their mother. There are so many cute props and things to remember your baby turning one. When it is all over, who does your child want to see in those images with them? The answer will always be you.
Below are a few of my favorites from a recent milestone session. All of these photos were made in my guest room. I have used this room for several sessions now and I like the way it photographs. The softness, the light.. When it is hot and sticky this summer, this is an option for you!
After becoming friends on Instagram, I finally got to meet Whitney in person! Whitney is a very talented photographer here in the Orlando area and she is just as sweet and lovely in person as I had imagined she would be! She also has the cutest little family and they had recently added a new baby boy to their crew. I remember those days with two small babies! Enjoy those precious little boys of yours!!
Below are a few of my many favorites from this adorable family session!
A sweet little babe at 8 weeks. Oh, how his parents adore this tiny little man. I hope you can feel the love in these images!
In the thick of it with these two little ones! All the snuggles and smiles that come with six months. Baby turned lady and the assertion of independence that come with two years. Believe it or not, these are days that will surely be missed. Soak in every single bit of it!
This adorable baby boy came a bit earlier than expected and he is so sweet, he just melted me! He was just 5 lbs for these photos. So tiny!! Ashley is a fellow photographer and is very talented. You can check her out and give her some love at Ashley Comeens Photography!
I am always a little nervous when photographing other photographers, but working with another creative person is really so much fun! Ashley and Andrew are already the most loving parents. It was so wonderful to just watch them stare at this sweet little soul with such adoration. My heart is so full when I look back at these photos!
Baby Sydney at 5 weeks. I really cannot get enough of her spiky black hair. She is so adorable!! It was pretty dark and started raining when I arrived for this in-home session so we moved out to their super cute bohemian styled patio. I loved everything about it and the pups even hung out for a few photos! Enjoy a few of my favs below!
I love all the newborn details. It often hurts to remember how long ago it was for me now, but also awakens me to the fact that these are the things I would want to never forget. A tiny warm baby on your chest. Drowsy little eyelids, fingers wrapped in your hair, open mouth sleeping in your arms. It's real and its raw and it's truly breathtaking.
Meet baby John. He is really so sweet and deeply loved. This squishy little guy just melted me!
I have really loved having the opportunity to meet and photograph so many new and familiar families this year. It is an absolute privilege to meet your new babies and see your little ones as they grow. These experiences bring me so much joy. I am overwhelmingly grateful for each and every one of you!
The sweetest family and the cutest little baby boy that just wanted to be held. I remember how hard the newborn stage is but truly, there is nothing quite like those snuggly newborn babies. Here are just a few of my many favorites from this beautiful in-home newborn session.
