Barefoot & Balloons 1st Birthday Portraits {Orlando Birthday Portraits}

On one lovely morning, after a few previous weather issues I was able to meet this adorable family at the field. We were there to capture all the cutest of turning ONE and on that special day it was actually her birthday! She was a bit serious about sitting in her flower tent, but when it came for her portraits in her family's special rocking chair she was all smiles!

Little Miss T, I hope your birthday was super super special!

Natural Light Orlando Newborn Photography | Studio Visit

Happy Monday!! Looking for a positive way to start your week? How about a new spin on things coming in threes!

Perfect Light: When I arrived at the studio there was gorgeous light blasting through our antique french doors. Sometimes you just know the light is going to be on another level! As many of you natural light photographers know, you can be at the mercy of mother nature. It is a cool challenge to make any light work depending on what our crazy awesome FL weather can bring.

Sleepy Baby: Of course we have our tricks for making newborn sleepy but sometimes you can just tell that they are going to be super sleepy the whole time. I am a bit superstitions so... of course, you never mention that until the END of the session! 

Awesome Big Sister: Capturing sibling portraits at the newborn stage is definitely a once in a lifetime thing. Most of the time, the siblings are fresh to the idea of this cute little person in the house...which ensures they are ready to love on their new brother/sister. This super star big sister sat down and had smiles and love to share from start to finish. {Check out the series of 3 below of their love...melts my heart}

Have a great Monday!

Cocoa Beach Maternity Portraits | Family of Love

One of the coolest things about our Holiday Mini Sessions are they are a great "test run" of our services, and that is exactly how I met this family! We had a great time last fall, out at the field for their Holiday Portraits and their secret pregnancy announcement.

This session was the perfect example of Florida weather. When we left Orlando it was raining and the clouds were a bit sassy {that is what we call it in our house} and the same when we arrived on the beach. I reassured the family that as long as we were without rain and lightening it was going to look amazing!! Thank you for trusting in me, one of the best skies at Cocoa Beach in awhile.

Their little girl is such a ham and the light of their lives. Looking forward to seeing how much she loves her little sibling in just a few weeks!

Have a blessed Friday!
