The Pellarin Family / Orlando Family Photography

I’ve worked with Katie for a few years now and have waited (what seems like) an eternity to get my lens on her sweet munchkin, Clara:)  We met up at Leu Gardens a couple of weeks ago and the weather was BEAUTIFUL! We spent the morning exploring the gardens and searching for dinosaurs. I also found out that Clara LOVES animal crackers . . . clearly she’s a girl after my own heart!

It was a near impossible task to narrow down my favorite images from our time together. From the lighting, to the colors, to Clara’s sweet smile–there were just so many to share:)

Welcome to the World, Emerson / Winter Garden Newborn Photography

I met Nan and Ray through a mutual friend and couldn’t be more excited to be the one to debut the newest addition to their family! Emerson Rose came into this world with the most perfect cheeks and lips. Her sweet temperament won my heart over minutes after meeting her. She was a joy to photograph and is one lucky little girl to have been born into a family that is so incredibly loving and kind. As an added bonus, I hear her grandmother can whip up one mean Pad Thai recipe:)

Oh, this face!

Welcome to the World, Sylvie / Orlando Newborn Photography

I met Brittany & Pierce when their daughter, Aubrey was six months old. We had our first session at Rollins College and since then I’ve been secretly hoping they’d hurry up and have another baby because they make BEAUTIFUL tiny people! Needless to say, I was THRILLED when Brittany called to schedule her maternity session and couldn’t wait until #2 made her way into the world. Sylvie showed up right on time and was born ready for her photo shoot. From her perfectly round cheeks and the twinkle in her eyes, she is destined to break some hearts one day.

Today is Brittany’s birthday, so I’m hoping these images will bring a smile to her day as she celebrates! They’ve certainly made my day :)

Jonathan c/o 2017 / Ocoee High School Senior Photography

I am in SERIOUS denial about this blog post. I have NO idea how this has happened, but somehow my nephew is old enough to be graduating high school this year. I knew it was coming, but  . . . HOLY COW–Jonathan is a SENIOR!

In my heart and in my head I still see him as the little sweet boy building Lego sets. Clearly, I need to get it together, because he graduates in less than two months!

Final decisions about what to do post-high school may still up for discussion, but I know that no matter what he decides to do it will be what’s right for him. Whether it be college, EMT school, or the Navy to serve our country, I know his heart will guide his way. I am so proud of the young man he’s grown up to be. His loving, quirky spirit has brightened our lives so much and I can’t wait to see what his very bright future brings!

Gwendolyn Turns 7! / Winter Garden Family Photography

Seven years ago I met Gwendolyn for the first time. She was barely four pounds and the tiniest little girl I’d ever photographed. Today she is a spunky, hilarious little girl who loves to sing and make crazy faces:)There is never a dull moment on our shoots and these images are proof. I hear she gets her dance moves from her dad and her sass from her mom!

Happy (belated) Birthday, Gwendolyn–may the next seven years be just as adventurous as the first seven:)
