    I cannot say enough how refreshing it was to shoot a maternity session!  For months I’ve consistently shot families with young children.  While I absolutely love to capture the innocence of childhood, it’s also nice to be able to give direction to my subjects without jumping up and down or making obnoxious noises to get them to look my way.  When Chellie contacted me to shoot her maternity session, I could not have been more thrilled for them!  I actually shot their engagement session a couple of years ago.  I love being apart of families lives and watching them become engaged, married, and then expecting!  It’s the circle of liiiiiife <—- insert Rafiki holding up baby Simba here.  LOL…  We were blessed with pink cotton candy skies this evening which are totally my jam as you may know.  Swoon! And I also have to point out that Chellie is literally a glowing mommy-to-be.  She has the cutest little baby bump!  Why couldn’t I have looked like that when I was pregnant?!  Haha..  Chellie and David:  I’m so excited for you both and I can’t wait to meet your little guy!

    Another fun session with some kite flying!  This beautiful family came to vacation here in St. Pete and brought their best friend and her son along.  They were so much fun!  We got a seriously gorgeous sunset that evening, especially when we decided to take the kite out and fly it.  And how cute is the baby’s headband?!  So perfect for a beach session.  If you’re wondering where she got it, you can find it at Birdie Baby Boutique. I’ve been having such a blast with my vacationing clients, probably because they’re in a Florida state of mind.  Amiright?!  Enjoy these pictures, G Family!

    I cannot say how humbled I am when I have a family that travels an hour or more to come have their pictures taken with me!  This beautiful family came to me from Orlando.  Not only did they drive across the state, but it was also on the night before the first day of school!  Since they sacrificed that night for me, I made sure we had an extra magical session.  We chased seagulls, picked shells and baby clams, and flew a kite!  Coincidentally, I purchased the kite that same day, so I decided to bring it along with me to my session to test out its flying skills.  As you can see, kite flying lessons were a success!  I’ll definitely be bringing my kite along for future family sessions.  So much fun!  Although it started out as an overcast evening, the sun peeked through the clouds for the last 15 minutes of our session and we were able to make some magic.  Thank you P Family for making the trip to the west coast of Florida.  I hope you treasure these family memories forever, and blow them up big on your walls!

    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!
