Baby Bump | Winter Park Florida Maternity Photographer

This mama-to-be looks amazing at 35 weeks pregnant!  Our session took a little detour when I pulled in to the planned location to find a park full of people camped out for some kind of event in the park.  Luckily, there was a college campus across the street so we headed there.  I hadn’t shot there before so we just walked and stopped when we liked an area.  It ended up working out beautifully!  The last picture in this post has the baby’s name written on the chalkboard, but I blacked it out because it’s not really public knowledge yet.  I just thought it was so cute that I had to share the concept 🙂  I’m looking forward to meeting this baby girl at the beginning of the year!

Trees! | Central Florida Children and Family Photographer

Mom confessed that they are a family that has their holiday pictures taken in a mall photography studio every year.  They opted to try something different this year and it was my goal to convert them for good.  Their request was trees!  They wanted lots of trees in their photos.  They may have gotten a little more than they bargained for with a near miss on an ant attack and practically being in the woods.  After seeing the end result it was all worth it.  I am happy to report that mom says she is done with studio photography.  Mission accomplished 🙂  Enjoy these photos Z family.  I hope to see you again next year 🙂

All the Way From Wisconsin! | Orlando Family and Children Photographer

This adorable family came all the way from Wisconsin!  They were on vacation visiting The Mouse and took time out for some family pictures first thing one morning before they were off to the parks.  They requested the Florida mossy trees and I knew just the park to find them.  Mom told me that the boys like jokes and I am soooooo not a joke teller.  I did a little googling and managed to remember a hand full at most.  The favorite was: What color is a burp?……. BURPLE!  So, the rest of the photo shoot we just yelled BURPLE for a good smile 🙂  Thanks S family!  I had a great time with you all!

Dena, I love these pictures. Where did you take them at?

Emma | Jacksonville FL Newborn Photographer

This baby girl belongs to very good friends of mine.  I traveled from Orlando to Jacksonville for her first official photo shoot.  She was a bit of a diva and not wanting to sleep, but I was patient and I think it paid off.  She was so worn out after her shoot that she slept for 5 hours!  Little stinker!  We did a part 2 with her older sister and brother the following day and those images are some of my favorite to date.
