Mommy and Me – Gulf Breeze, FL Family Photographer

 

Carrie told me “This is all I wanted for Mother’s Day!”  I was so glad to be able to do this for her.   My mini sessions didn’t go as planned and actually started raining on us just as we were leaving.   I had several kids sick who couldn’t make it, one with a black eye that would be a lot of touch up in post and then of course the threatening rain.  I was able to keep Carrie’s because she came early and all was well.  We had a tiny bit of sunlight before the storm rolled on in.  And this little girl…  OMG, she is such a ham!!  You might remember her from the last session we did a few months ago.  {see gallery here}  It was the same location but looks totally different.  I try to assure people even though we use the same location more than once, I will make it look different.   I loved the tall grass and flowers.  Carrie and Kam made this session so easy!  So laid back and trusting of what I am doing.  Kam is a true joy to photograph.  Was like one big play date.  Look at that smile!  You can tell how much she loves her mama.  That last shot of them laughing making eye contact {swoon}!  I can’t wait to see them again!

Harbor is one!! – Pensacola Beach, FL Photographer

I can’t believe it.  A whole year has gone by and this little girl is one.  She has been the sweetest little soul on this earth.  Her parents are equally as sweet.  I’ve been photographing this little girl since she was a newborn.  {gallery here}

She has the most gorgeous big blueish-greenish eyes you’ve ever seen. Actually,  I do not even know what color her eyes are but, they are a whole lot of gorgeousness. 😉  We went out to Pensacola Beach for the session.  The light was right, the weather calm, it really was the perfect night.  Harbor was a willing participant too and I’m so glad mama wanted that tent.  Agh!  I love it!

Osban Family – Pensacola Family Photographer

Oh, The Places He Will Go! This is sweet, amazing little dude is Michael Dean! He stole my heart, not only with his cute little dimples, but with his love for books!!! We incorporated them into his shoot because he basically wanted to show me every book  on his shelf! It was so much fun. And his Dr. Seuss room was just magical. His Mom and Dad commissioned a local Pensacola artist to bring their vision to life. I absolutely love the fact that the characters from his books have been brought to life all over his walls. It is truly a beautiful room and I know it’s going to help feed that beautiful imagination of his. This is just one of the many reasons that I love lifestyle family shoots. I get to learn so much about what really matters to my clients. I get to see firsthand what their tastes are and experience the joy of being in their loving homes. The comfort that they have from doing the shoot in their own environment goes a long way in bringing out their most natural, relaxed selves and capturing that is my favorite thing. Real life is when all the true magic happens. Even when it’s messy and imperfect, it’s such a gift. My clients are often my biggest reminders to live every day to the fullest. Creating a visual record of them doing that exact thing is the goal each time I show up. Whether we are on the beach or on their back porch, it’s their time to celebrate the craziness and hopefully realize that they are all so loved and lucky to have each other. Life is sweet!

To say I was excited to do this session is an understatement.  I was feeling pretty cool being their photographer, lol.  I’ve lived here in the Pensacola area my entire life and have grown up watching the Blue Angels air show since I was a baby.  Seriously, to this day, it NEVER gets old.  I’m so excited for the show coming up this July.  Here is a link to their schedule:  http://www.visitpensacola.com/landing/blue-angels  Big air show over the Gulf of Mexico this year will be July 15-16th.

Elizabeth and Mark not only a beautiful couple, they are super cool.  People I would definitely hang out with.  They have one gorgeous son about to be turning 1 next month!  We shot this session right before they moved last November.  They moved cross country and she needed to put this on the back burner for a little bit.  Was no problem at all.  I was excited to look at this gallery with a fresh set of eyes.  We started at the Blue Angels field where they keep the planes.  I had literally 5 minutes to shoot this portion before we had to get off the runway.  Pressure!! I’m happy with what we got though.  After that, we headed down to the beach to add some variety to the gallery.  This was a sunrise session so baby boy was ready to go back to sleep by the time we were done.  😉

I’m sad to not be able to see them any time soon since they live so far away but, working on convincing them for a vacation 😉

Carter {8 days old} Pensacola, FL Newborn Photographer

 

Carter was such a good baby!  He zoomed through everything we did.  He was such a settled and happy little guy.  Before every session I lay out different props for the parents to choose from on my wooden backdrop.  I’m so in love with what his mama chose.  I haven’t used the scale in forever, probably since when I first began 5 years ago.  I loved those shots and think they’re my favorite right after the aerial shot of his sweet face.  He looks so much like his mama too.  Can’t wait to have them back to get some family photos done.  This session was all about Carter <3  Look at that blonde hair!!  dying over here.
