Sweet moments captured with this lovely couple as they wait on their baby girl! These quiet summer mornings in Florida are where it's at for photos these days. We have to beat that afternoon rain! Thank you for waking up early with me!!
Dress mama wears is available in the client closet. Film scanned by Photovison.
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!
This sweet couple has long waited to grow their family. I am just so very excited for them to meet their little boy in just a few weeks. This baby is already so loved! Below are some of my favorites from this sun soaked maternity session under the Cypress trees.
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!
Some mommy and me goodness!
Baby girl has gotten so big and smiley since her newborn photos! I've known Jessica for over 10 years and seeing her with her baby girl just makes my heart explode. One of my favorite parts of this day was listening to Jessica tell Rosie girl about how we met, "Well, we've known each other for a very long time. We met at bar, sometimes you meet the best people there..." Hahaha! True story, good ole Scruffy Murphy's in College Park. We still keep in touch with many friends we made at that place! That little sweet spot of 6-12 months for a baby is such a cute baby age, not fully asserting their independence and prime for all the snuggles and tickles and kisses!
I am so glad I was able to meet up with Alli and Mike while they were visiting from Boston. Boston... So how did our paths connect? Well, Alli is actually from Buffalo, NY! Mary and I have photographed some of her friends' weddings in WNY over the years. She reached out about engagement photos for when they were planning to vacation in Ft. Myers and everything happened to align. Lover's Key was the ideal location as it is a beautiful beach and she used to come here with her family when she was growing up. These two couldn't be more perfect! They are both so kind, fun and just a beautiful couple!! Some of my favorites from this bright and sunny beach engagement session are below!
This beautiful momma and her little boy are so adorable together, waiting with sweet anticipation to meet the newest addition to their family, a baby girl. We had the dreamiest little maternity session right in my backyard. We went for a minimalist feel, using a simple white sheet hanging from some hedges while momma wore a flowy white dress. We were expecting a sunny day, but a weird fog rolled in and left us with overcast skies. The sun did peek out for just a few minutes! I experimented with Fuji and Portra film stocks and liked some images from 2 different scanners. There is some digital work in here too... It was fun mixing it up and trying to make it all look cohesive!
Also, both momma and child outfits are available in the client closet if you are interested for your own session!
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!
