Dunedin/Honeymoon Island Family Session

Dunedin/Honeymoon Island Family Session

I have been MIA for awhile but I am back! I can’t believe 2019 is half over already. I have so many sessions to share with you all and thought this family was the perfect place to start.

This family was living in Florida for a short time, they were getting ready to move to another state and wanted to document their time as a family here in Florida. They choose the perfect location and colors for their family session. I could tell right away they were going to be a fun family. This family was so connected and it showed during their session. As photographers we know it can be awkward to have photos taken and so we use phrases like “pretend like you like each other” or we ask for fake laughs in order to get real laughs but with this family it just came natural. I enjoyed my time with this family and I am so thankful that they choose me to capture their Florida living memories.

Enjoy!

Sand Key Beach | Family Session

Sand Key Beach | Family Session

We have a beach first timer here! This gorgeous little girl had her first time at the beach this past fall. It was so much fun to watch her put her toes in the sand for the first time and like many she was a little hesitant. After just a few minutes though she was a pro, walking barefoot and finding shells. She LOVED the shells. Being from up North mom and dad wanted to capture their daughters first time at the beach, we had a perfect day. It was nice and overcast so it wasn't too hot and they were able to explore and have so much fun! 

Check out some of my favorite captures of this adorable family.

Thanks for stopping by!

The A Family | Lutz FL Newborn Session

The A Family | Lutz FL Newborn Session

For the minute I met N + L for their maternity session I knew their baby girl would be gorgeous! I was so excited to meet her. Walking into their home was like walking into a interior decorators house! I have been re-decorating my house ever since this session, I am not even kidding! 

Baby A was exactly how I pictured her, PERFECT! She was so sweet and so happy to see me she wanted to stay awake for the entire session :) 

It was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon with this adorable little family! I had a hard time narrowing down the images I was going to share from the session so I will apologize now for the overload! Enjoy!!

Long Boat Key First Birthday | Family Session

Long Boat Key First Birthday | Family Session

Little miss C was celebrating her first birthday! We traveled out to Long Boat Key to capture this little beauty and her family. It was a perfect evening that ended in cotton candy skies. Exploring the beach with this adorable family was a blast! We stayed right up until we had zero light left. Miss C decided at the end of the shoot that she wanted to include her best buddy! 

Enjoy!

Redington Beach Family Session

Redington Beach Family Session

As usual I have been a slacker, well not really. I have been so busy I haven't had the time to share anything lately. I have so many client sessions still to share and I have months of personal images I haven't even upload yet! I would love to say I will be sharing more and getting caught up on  my personal work but I have back to back sessions for the next couple months so I am sure the next time I share my starting line will include the word "slacker". The good news is in the time I have not been present online I have been spending some much needed time getting caught up on other things and taking some down time with my family. I feel like life is getting busier and busier for everyone. I don't remember it being this way when i was growing up. I literally have to write in my planner when to take time to spend with my family. That seems crazy to me! However, I am willing to do whatever crazy things I need to in order to get that time.

Little man had just turned 2 and was full of energy this night. He LOVED being at the beach, he ran and ran and ran some more. It was such a gorgeous evening for a beach session. Enjoy these images!

This family is too cute! We met in at the University of Tampa for their session. Their little guy was celebrating the big ONE! They were such a photogenic family, with mom being a fellow photographer that maybe why they were such naturals in front of the camera. I wish I could say the same amount me and my family! I am so awkward in front of the camera, I belong behind it for sure.

Redington Beach Family Session

Redington Beach Family Session

Family vacations are a touchy subject for some and a tradition for others. I could tell right away that this family had a natural connection. They chose Redington Beach for their 2016 family vacation and decided to capture some memories. Family vacations are definitely a tradition in our family. We love to get together with family from near and far and create memories. Some of our favorite things to do are explore, play games (very competitive), swim, try new restaurants and relax together.

With the holidays among us I am so excited to take the time to spend with family and friends!

This was a session from September at the Redington Shores Long Pier. It was a gorgeous windy night and enjoyed taking a part in capturing this families memories.

Sand Key Beach Family Session

Sand Key Beach Family Session

I feel like I say this every time I do a blog post, I am so behind!! I have taken a little time off to travel with my family and enjoy are brand new swimming pool before it is to cold to do so. With fall sessions underway I will probably get even more behind, oh well. This is a family session I did back in June. I absolutely love when large families all get together to do a family photo session. I remember when I was younger one of my family members had the idea of gifting my Great Grandmother a large frame with images from each individual family. So my mom and her family, my uncle and his family, my aunt and her family and so on. Back then professional photography wasn't as popular so we all just took our own photos on our own time with our own camera. We gave them all to my Grandmother who put together the frame. The photos were fine and my Great Grandmother displayed the frame proudly on her wall, however there is not a fun story behind the images or a family memory. These days the whole family coordinates outfits, meets at one location, goes through the awkward poses, creates memories, laughs and goes to dinner as a family afterwards. It is like an event and I love that so many families are taking the time to create and capture these memories.

This family was a blast, they went through the awkward poses with me and created some of their own. It was a hot evening in June but they had fan and will have these images to show this time in their lives forever.

You know you are behind on blogging when the mother of this adorable little guy has contacted you for a First Birthday Session and you haven't even blogged his 6 Month Old Session. Better late then never right? This just goes to show how fast time flies! This session feels like yesterday and this little guy is about to turn one! We had so much fun playing with blankets, bears, bubbles and his doggies! By the end of the session he was exhausted.

Enjoy!

There are so many things to be said about this family. They are wonderful, genuine, caring, and amazing people. This family was brought into my life on a day that I needed them most and I am forever greatful. They were celebrating many things at the end of 2015 and wanted to document this momentous year with a photo session at the University of Tampa, which included the entire family. Mom and dad both celebrated a milestone birthday and their 40th wedding anniversary!! The E family was celebrating the birth of their 3rd child and the M family was getting ready to celebrate their daughters 1st birthday. Many celebrations to be had and I am so glad I got capture this time in their lives. It was a cloudy, rainy and humid day but we still managed to have fun!

Longboat Key Family Photographer | The M family session

I have always wanted to shoot at this location in Longboat Key so when I get the inquiry for this family located in the Bradenton area I was so excited to find out they wanted beach photography session. As you can see this location is GORGEOUS! The M family was so much fun! The waves were coming in pretty strong and at first the little guys weren't to sure about the whole thing but as we kept going we couldn't keep them out of the water. Within 20 minutes of our session the boys were soaked! They were having so much fun running and splashing which made for some really great shots of this adorable family having fun together. Enjoy!

These two are too much! I have photographed their family multiple times and was so excited to do this mother daughter shoot. As you can see they are both so photogenic. We had to cancel the shoot once due to weather and I was so bummed at first. We rescheduled right away and the evening couldn't have been more perfect (well it could have been less windy I suppose). I am so glad we choose Honeymoon Island for the location of this shoot, the rocks (although were hard to walk around) made for such a perfect backdrop for these two beauties. These girls rocked the flower head crowns and were so willing to try anything, we had a blast! Miss A couldn't wait till the end of the shoot to get in the water! She splashed and played for awhile so we could get some great shots for her surfer girl themed birthday party which I hope will be totally RAD (in my suffer dude voice). I hope you all enjoy these images! As always thank you for taking the time to check them out!
