    This session definitely takes the cake for one of my most favorite sessions of the summer!  Not only do mommy and me sessions have a special place in my heart, but HELLO!  There was a rainbow!  Can you believe that I drove through a crazy thunderstorm to get to the beach?  Well of course you can, it’s Florida summer and theres a rainbow to prove it!  As soon as I arrived, the rainbow was already out in full force, so we got started right away to make sure that we could capture it!  It actually stuck around for almost our entire session!  Usually, they gradually fade away and are completely gone after 10 minutes.  We got so lucky!  These adorable twins came to vacation with their mommy, aunt, and cousin.  Fun fact, these twins mom is also an identical twin herself.  You know what I call that?  Twinning in life! (just pretend to chuckle) You don’t see their aunt here because she was busy catching a huge crab behind the scenes.  And I mean it was a huuuuge blue crab.  Don’t worry, we didn’t eat it for dinner although I would’ve loved to.  YUM!  It was so nice meeting you all and frolicking on the beach in front of a rainbow.  Thank you for allowing me to capture your Florida beach memories 🙂

    This extra large family session definitely required an extra large blog post!  When this Alabama mommy contacted me about getting some family pictures taken on their family vacation, I of course said yes.  Then she sent me the picture of her daughters Dollcake dress, and I may have squealed!  How pretty is it?!  I love photographing Dollcake dresses, especially at the beach.  I need to get my daughters a few!  And of course we cannot forget about her son’s and husbands matching wardrobe as well.  Just perfect for the beach.  Kudos to you mommy for organizing eight family members outfits!

    We made so much magic happen that evening because the sky just called for it!  It’s amazing how many colors the sky can change in the course of an hour.  It went from bright blue and faded into hues of purples, pinks and oranges.  I truly enjoyed getting to know you all!  Now y’all come back next year, you hear?!  Haha, enjoy your pictures!!

You make my job too easy!

    It was so nice to photograph some older kiddies for a change!  I’ve had so many babies and toddlers in front of my camera lately tat I’ve almost forgotten how easy it is to give older kids direction!  They actually look at my camera when asked to!  Haha, no I love photographing little ones, but it was refreshing to work with these beautiful girls.  This beautiful family came here all the way from Indiana to enjoy the warm beaches here in Tampa.  Since Indiana is a landlocked state, this was a very special trip for them.  These three sisters were so sweet to each other and reminded me of my own three girls.  I couldn’t help but get a glimpse into my future!  For most of the session, the sun was hidden behind an overcast sky but the photography gods were with us and the sun peeked out just in time for sunset!  So of course some silhouette twirls were in order!  I hope you enjoyed your beach vacation, D Family!  Thank you for allowing me to capture your memories here!

    “You’ll be his first kiss, his first love and his first friend.  You are his mommy and he’s your whole world.”  Mommy and Me sessions hold a special place in my heart.  I love seeing the raw, organic love that a mommy has for her children.  The way she holds her sons hand, the way she tangles her daughters strand of hair around her around her fingers, and the way she looks at her kids with adoring eyes.  These tiny moments go by far too fast!  It’s important that we capture these memories to look back on when all of a sudden it’s just not cool to hold your mommy’s hand anymore.  When a session solely focuses on a mothers love and it comes out as beautiful as this, my heart tank is full!

    Jessica, Matthew and I met for a quick mini session on the beach and when I arrived, Matthew was already a wet, sandy mess!  No worries from me though, I love to embrace the chaos that accompanies sessions with little ones. He loved the ocean and letting the waves wash over him.  We ran up and down the beach and ended with a naked baby sitting on the shore!  Is there anything cuter?  I think not!!  Enjoy your mommy and me images, I hope these are memories that are cherished for years to come!

    “There is no better friend than a sister, and there is no better sister than you.”

    Oh how I loved this special sisters session!  When we arrived at the beach, we were greeted with some dark ominous clouds but decided to take our chances until it rained.  Well, it rained!!  But since it was only sprinkling, we decided to continue with our session.  This was actually such a great decision because almost everyone left the beach and we had it all to ourselves.  Not to mention, we had some really dramatic clouds as our backdrop which obviously I love!

    These sweet sisters ran up and down the beach, played ring around the rosie, twirled and finally went for a swim in their dresses!  Then, the most amazing double rainbow came out.  I think I squealed when I saw it!! This was the first time I’ve been able to capture a rainbow during a photo session.  We finished off our session with a confetti popper which happened to match the rainbow perfectly!  This has been one of my most favorite sessions of the summer so far. Enjoy these sweet memories you two!  I hope you cherish them for years to come!!
