Horsin’ Around

My oldest daughter got to go to horseback riding camp for her 8th birthday (courtesy of her Mimi!).  I got the pleasure of hanging out and having lunch with her on her birthday at the farm and of course had to snap some pictures!!

Horse camp ended and it was a doozey!  This was her first time riding a horse that wasn’t walking in a circle at the festivals around town.  It was a bit more work than she anticipated and she will no longer ask  if we can buy her a horse lol.  All in all it was a fun, yet challenging experience for her.  There were times she wanted to give up but she stuck with it and I’m proud of her and she is proud of herself.

Let Them be Little

“I will let them be little, fill their hearts with laughter, help them grow wings, nurture their sense of wonder, inspire them to believe, and love them like there is no tomorrow.”

My little lady turned 8 today!  When thinking about a photo session for her, I wanted to do something fun and natural to her.  She’s not always keen on my ideas of taking her out in a field of flowers because they are too itchy on her legs.  So we were going to go natural and have her just playing with her stuffed animals.  Its summer so it of course decided to rain.  We picked up a super cute umbrella and went for it.

1….2…..3….. weeeee!

So my baby girl just turned 3.  We had a St Patricks Day party planned but we all came down with a nasty bug and decided to cancel.  Instead we celebrated all week long the week of her birthday with smaller groups.  I documented our low key day on her actual birthday we went to the grocery store, went to lunch with sister at school, blew bubbles at Mimi’s house and played on her swing set.  We also had a small celebration with Daddy at Mimi’s house Sunday with cupcakes and pizza.  We went to the park with a few friends one day to celebrate and this weekend we went to a carnival with some cousins to watch one of them perform and celebrated her birthday after.  We had so much fun!  I can’t believe my baby girl is three!

Birthday/Valentine’s Session

So I love when my clients have a vision for their sessions! We did a little combo birthday/valentines. As usual, I will let the pictures do the talking because they say so much! I will say that this is one of the most fun sessions yet!

Fall Mini Sessions

Wow, we had so much fun playing in the leaves!  It’s hard to find a lot of fallen leaves here in Florida but we did it!  Thanks to a client for letting us use her yard :)

Lifestyle Family Session

This family session was so much fun!  We  had a lifestyle session and got to hang out on the beach at sunset.  We also played in the water and chased some bubbles.  Mimi even joined in!  I just love the natural interaction we were able to capture with this family.  Can you see why I love to shoot in this beautiful light known as the golden hour?  Enjoy!

Styled Session

One of my favorite sessions with my little lady.  I just love the vintage book!  We took these to showcase this headband for a vendor but we ended up with some of my personal favorite images of my daughter.
