Orlando Baby Photographer -Willow 4 Months

Dear Willow,

4 months, really? Oh how fast it has gone by. For a moment it makes me sad to think that you are already 4 months old, but than I realize you are my daughter forever. For the rest of my life, I will see you through each and every milestone of your sweet journey through life. From your first steps to your first words to your first day of school {tear} mommy will always be here. Mommy will be here to kiss your boo boos and to huge you close.  

Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself about this forever part. Many things have come and gone, many of them loved and lost with pain to follow. But one thing is for sure, you are greatest gift of all. You are worth everything! For such a small little person you provide more unconditional love than mommy can begin to understand. 

I can’t begin to express the joy of waking up to your huge smiles each and every morning. One day you will probably laugh at me as I reminisce over your first year in this world. But 1 day you will understand, when you set eyes on your own baby.  It is a love you can’t begin to explain but a love that takes full control of your heart and soul.

Well at 4 months, you are rolling from front to back & back to front.  So glad you saved that special moment for your daddy. He loves you more than anything and already speaks of his scare tactics for your boyfriends one day. You have the greatest daddy in world; never forget that!

You bring so much joy and happiness to our lives; I honestly can’t really remember life without you. I am truly enjoying every moment with you but I can’t wait to see the little princess you turn into.

My life’s mission is to ensure you feel every bit of love your mommy and daddy have for you!

Love you little babes!


Mommy

My wish for you... {Orlando Newborn Photographer}

Dear Willow,

Mommy loves you more and more with each passing day. I didn’t really think it was possible to love you so much. The past month did not seem to fly by like your first month in this world. With our entire car buying adventures complete, I have had so many more hours to just sit and stare at you while you sleep. I know, it might sound a bit goofy, but when you are asleep I just want to eat those little cheeks and nibble on your nose! From the very beginning, you have dreams and nightmares that awake you in little screams. Your little screams, make my heart hurt for you, I just want to comfort and protect you. I am very curious to know what it is that makes you smile while you sleep.

“You are so beautiful. You are so cute. You are so pretty.” Anytime your daddy or I say those words to you, you smile from ear to ear. It makes me happy to see you so happy. I promise to protect you from the evils of the world and to keep you always close to my heart whether you are near or far.  

You are starting to discover more and more about yourself. Your hands are your favorite thing, it is so cute to watch you try and stick your long fingers in your mouth. Poor thing, you have choked yourself once or twice with them.

You are a momma’s girl, is what everyone keeps telling me. Secret is, I love that. I love that sometimes you simply just want mommy to hold you. I love when I come home;I am greeted with a big smile from you. I think I enjoy cuddling with you, just as much as you do. Resting my face against your soft little cheeks while you sleep, is pure heaven.

I feel so blessed that each day is just the perfect amount of time. Yes, of course you are getting big so fast, but I feel like each day is just the right amount of time, to give you lots and lots of love!

When a baby is brought into this world, we all have expectations for what they can be. Well of course, we have a few suggestions: a little athlete of some sort, playing ball with your big sister Lily, becoming the best at whatever you choose for this life. But most of all, I want for you, sweet little girl is be happy and to know you will always have a safe and loving place in your mommy and daddy’s arms.

It is my wish that you are able to feel the never ending love that I have for you. I look forward to the days of mommy daughter dates, whatever you want to do, we shall. But for now I will enjoy each and every smile.

Mommy loves you so much

Happy Happy 1st Birthday {Winter Garden Urban Baby Photographer}

At every first birthday session it always reminds me of how much I enjoy photographing families with little ones! Hard to believe it was only a year ago, that I met this handsome little boy. He was an angel the entire time; calm, relaxed and like play dough! Fast-forward a year and still the same happy little boy {minus the few moments when the 90 degree temperature got to him, personally I think it was getting to all of us}. Lucky for us, the best locations for portraits were also the cooler breezier areas. With a big smile on his face, little Y. was ready for his moment from start to finish. The family did a terrific job selecting their clothes to perfectly match with our location. This family is always a enjoy to photograph, with lots of laughs in between clicks of the camera. Looking forward to watching this cutie grow!

Please feel to leave us some love below.

Happy 1st Birthday, Little Pooh Bear {Orlando Cake Smash Photographer}

Introducing our mini cake smash sessions! Super excited to show this sweet little boy and his good friend Winnie the Pooh. So with a Winnie the Pooh theme party we decided a Pooh theme cake smash would be perfect.  It is extremely hard to believe it has been almost a year since I met this little sweetie! "Little" might be the wrong word since I he has always acted a few months older since day one, including lifting his head and being SUPER alert at 5 days old (and 3 weeks early).

A former bride of Erika Hopkins Photography makes custom cakes!! How exciting for us?!? She did such a fabulous job with this custom Pooh Honey Pot. So if you are interested in a custom cake instead of the typical "Publix Baby Cake" for your kiddos cake smash let us know! She does an amazing job, I can't say enough about her amazing work.

Happy Happy Birthday  little B!!

xoxo
