It’s been over a year since little Gavin’s session, but within seconds of being in the same room with his beautiful momma, Shannon, it instantly feels like it was just yesterday we last saw each other. This time, the spotlight was on Shannon and her lovely sister, Christine. I can’t begin to describe how much fun this sisters session was! Shannon and Christine wanted a creative shoot that would highlight some of the fun things they like to do together: shop, laugh, have fun, and laugh some more! We accomplished that…and then some! They decided to make it a sisters weekend getaway and stayed at the gorgeous Don Vicente in Ybor. It was the perfect backdrop for their adventures! Here are a few of our many favorites- doesn’t this feature just make you want to grab your sibling and have a fun session, too?
The end of summer brought us some exciting opportunities, once-in-a-lifetime photo shoots, and lots of travel. I can’t wait to blog more of what we’ve been working on in the next few weeks. Let’s get the party started with Asha’s session! I don’t even know where to start when describing what a unique experience it was working with Asha. Imagine how much trust and confidence she must have had in us to go along with our wild ideas- like planning her photo shoot somewhere neither of us had been to or waking up in the wee hours of the morning, due to a three hour drive! I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, flexible model than Asha. Actress and model (currently seeking representation in the UK), she booked us on recommendation from one of the very first models we worked with, Melissa. After deciding to expand her portfolio, Asha chose our creative vision to take her portfolio to the next level. Asha was completely at home in her favorite relaxing spot- the beach! The sandy coquina rocks and rising sun were a perfect backdrop- I couldn’t be more in love with the images we created together!
One of the many blessings of being a family photographer is that you get to see the wonderful changes that happen over time to the sweet families you document. I was stunned to see how much Madi and Bree had grown since their last session with us! They have grown to be such beautiful young ladies, and if that wasn’t enough- super talented as well. We had such a wonderful time creating some portraits at their new home and then headed out to a nearby park. Once there, these girls dazzled us with their talents and their unbelievably charismatic personalities- see the results below!
We finished the evening at one of our favorite places, California Pizza Kitchen, and to say that there were lots of laughs is an understatement! Besides showing Cynthia’s family how to “bump” we realized our families have so much in common. We’re thankful that Cynthia and Bryan trust our vision when documenting their family, but even more grateful for the beautiful friendship we share.
P.S. A little birdie told me that Cynthia and Bryan are celebrating their wedding anniversary today! Be sure to leave them some love in the comments below!
When I first started my journey in photography, I wondered how every session or wedding could be a photographer’s favorite. Surely, there’s only one that’s the photographer’s favorite, I thought. But to my surprise, I soon discovered that the unique elements and personalities in every photography experience are what make each and every one my favorite.
Emily found our work through Pinterest and after chatting on the phone a few times about her vision and sweet family, we couldn’t wait to meet them! As unpredictable as Florida weather can be, it was a cold, rainy and overcast day but that didn’t inhibit Emily, her husband Jeremy, and their cute little ones from having some fun at the beach! Right before sunset, the sun decided to break through for a few seconds and we were able to capture the last image in this post. It was magical.
We had such a wonderful time with the Chrysler family and I hope they include frequent visits back to Florida on their agenda.
Emily is such a doll, and we thank Collective Creations for doing a great job highlighting her beauty. Something for the guys, definitely check out Jeremy’s Kickstarter project: Mr. Davis: The World’s Best Undershirt. You can thank me later!
Enjoy some of our favorite images from their day!
Supportive words of encouragement and sweet compliments on our work come to mind when I think of how I met Jennifer. You see, Jennifer has been a loyal fan of our Facebook page since early 2010. She’s seen us grow as photographers, as a business, and has been an awesome supporter! It was such an honor when she told us years ago we’d be her ‘forever photographers’! :)
When the fates aligned and she booked her family session a few months ago, there was an extra pinch of excitement knowing we’d finally be able to meet one of our first fans in-the-flesh! Meeting and photographing Jennifer and her beautiful family was such a treat. Her two precious angels, Carlos and Sophia, are the most lovable little duo we’ve set our eyes on!
Jennifer’s family emits such a contagious love and they are so adorably happy together that we could have photographed their sweet moments together for days. These images captured are sure to make your heart smile.
Thank you Jennifer for sharing your family and time with us. It was an unforgettable adventure! We enjoyed creating these pretty memories with you and we are blessed with your wonderful friendship.
