Laila Stoppler c/o 2016 / West Orange High School Senior Photography

One of the best parts of being a teacher (as well as a photographer) is that I get to see my former students grow up and do great things beyond their crazy middle school years. Another distinct perk is that I get the chance to document their senior pictures:)

As in most cases, when I got the email from Laila, I was in total denial that she could be graduating already. Somewhat my defense, she DID fast-track herself to early graduation, but STILL . . . where does the time go?!

Laila will be graduating this week, six months ahead of schedule, and I am THRILLED to be sharing her senior pictures just in time for the celebration. I am so proud of all that she’s accomplished and all that she will be working towards (as soon as she returns from her celebratory trip to England).

Merry Christmas from The Benson Family / Redtail Golf Club Photography

Christmas wouldn’t exist in the Ihnenfeld Photography world without this family! Amanda, Nathan, and Allyson have been with me for almost eight years. Through the years, I’ve taken thousands of images of this beautiful family. Amanda is always scoping out new locations and ensembles for their annual holiday pictures and this year she didn’t disappoint–Redtail Golf Club had the most beautiful lighting and I fell in love with this location the moment I arrived.  Just when I thought last year’s pictures were my all-time favorite . . . along comes this year’s and, for dozens of reasons, these are now officially my favorite! I have NO idea how we will top these:)

Tanner Family Christmas / Orlando Family Photography

My favorite time of the year is here! Let the Christmas season begin with one of my favorite families. Amy and James make THE cutest kiddos and I was so excited to spend the morning with them last Saturday for their Christmas session. We met at one of the most beautiful gardens and the weather was gorgeous. Basically it was a PERFECT morning:)

blog_tanner_christmas_15These little outfits are just the sweetest–Amy knows how to properly accessorize:)

blog_tanner_christmas_01blog_tanner_christmas_02Just look at these little faces!

Catching Up with The Timko Family / Orlando Maternity Photography

It’s been pretty quiet on the blog lately, but we’re back and I am thrilled that it’s with this session.

Just when I thought Brittany couldn’t get any more beautiful–holy cow!  She and her husband, Pierce are expecting baby number two and they couldn’t be happier. What’s hard for me to believe is just how big Aubrey has gotten since our first shoot. She was just 6 months old then and now she’s ready to be a big sister!

I am THRILLED with how these images turned out. If you had seen where we shot these pictures, you’d be amazed. Let’s just say these turned out pretty magical in comparison to the setting we used. Thank you Brittany and Pierce for trusting me enough to brave these locations. Thanks also for remembering to bring the bug spray :)

Welcome to the World, Noah / Windermere Newborn Photography

I am SO excited to share these images. Noah came into this world just two short weeks ago and he’s already stolen hearts. When you combine his sweet little face and perfect lips and then mix in his strawberry blonde hair it’s no wonder I was smitten! Elise and Jeremy are already such amazing parents–so calm and cool and collected–and it shows in Noah’s little personality. He was a ROCK STAR for his debut session and it was such a joy spending the afternoon snuggling with him:)

Without further adieu, meet Noah. He’s pretty new around here:
