Barrett Family Mini

How cute is this family of 3.  As usual I always love to meet new families.  The Barrett family is another wonderful Hensel Phelps family.  I always feel like when I come across a HP family I feel like we could be come instant friends because they know exactly what life is like especially one who is on the same project as my husband.

For the Barrett’s mini session we went up to Lake Baldwin Park which was the perfect setting for this family session.  Logan was just the cutest and he worked for M&M’s ssshhh don’t tell Logan but I sometimes work for M&Ms too!  We had fun seeing the airplanes flying over head and check to see if there were any alligators in the water.  We had so much fun getting some great shots of this family and I hope to get to work with them again in the future.

Colton Turns 6 Months

It is hard to believe that this little man turned 6 Months.  It seems like just yesterday I was meeting him for the first time.

Colton is the youngest of 4 kids.  He has two wonderful parents and I think that he looks a little like both of them.  While in Indiana Colton and his family (who happen to be my sister, nieces, and nephew) were visiting his Grandparents who live out in the middle of nowhere.  It made for the perfect background for some 6 months pictures.  He still isn’t really sitting on his own but that didn’t stop us from being able to get some super cute pictures.  This little boy has the best smile and the prettiest eyes I just can never get enough of him!  I hope that you enjoy him as much as I do!!!

Welcome Baby Talia

Welcome to the world baby Talia!  This little girl is just so beautiful I could not get enough of her.  She is just so tiny and sweet.  Talia was 10 days new when I captured her.  Her tiny little hands and feet made me kind of miss those days.

I went to their home up in Lake Nona and they had a perfect window that let in enough natural light that we were able to do all the photos in the comfort of their home.  Talia was perfect when it came to letting me play with her.  She slept for most of her shoot even when her big brother came in and wanted to play.  She has so much love around her with her parents and brother.

Talia has a beautiful caterpillar that her parents got her from Israel that has the alphabet on it.  Before coming to Orlando Rosy, her husband Deen, and son Kaiden lived for 2 years abroad in Israel where her husband was working on a project at an Intel plant.  They found out they were pregnant while still over there so they wanted their newest member to have a keepsake from there.  I think this is perfect one that she will have forever.

Welcome Baby Lucas

Please welcome baby Lucas who was born on June 6th.  He was welcomed into this world by mom Maria, dad Steven, and big sister Addy.  You can already tell at just 1 month old this little boy is very loved by a lot of people.

I met Maria around April at a playdate I was very new to town and I was running way late and she stayed and hung out for a while and our girls got to know each other.  Theybecame quick friends and now my daughter Taylor always ask when she is going to see her friend Addy again.  I hope that our sons will also become close friends as they grow older.

I went over to Maria and Steven’s house to do the newborn pictures and they had a nice bright little bedroom in the front of the house perfect for natural light pictures.   We tried to sneak a few pictures in outside while the sun was behind what we thought was rain clouds, but just as we got outside and started snapping pictures the sun came out and made it just unbelievable hot.  We successfully got some in but we were able to grab some real beauties once we moved inside.  Since Lucas was almost 1 month old at the time of pictures he was  awake the whole time.  Can you blame him though he didn’t want to miss out on the party.

We were able to grab some great shots of him with his big sister Addy who just loves her little brother to death.  I heard a lot of can I hold him, yep that line sounds very familiar to me I heard it a lot with my own daughter.  Addy loved to give hugs (or as I always put it choke holds) to her brother and lots and lots of kisses.  You can already tell these two are going to have so much fun growing up together.

July 4th Mini Sessions

So we have been living in St. Cloud for about 4 months now and I have already gotten to know some wonderful people.  I decided that I would like to try doing some mini sessions for some of the families that I had met.  I didn’t know if any of them would actually say yes or think I was just some crazy person.  But to my surprise and excitement they said did say yes.  So I decided to set up a couple of different settings in my backyard with an Independence Day theme, because I have a old wooden fence that I actually kind of like.  (if it wasn’t falling over I would beg for my husband to keep it)  While doing these session I found out that it gets very hot and humid very early in Florida but for the most part the kids did great!

 

Ready for Baby Number 2

I had the pleasure of knowing Rosy for a few years now.  We met when we both lived in Chandler Arizona, our husbands both work for the same company Hensel Phelps.  For two years we both lived literally in two different countries.  Rosy, Dean, and their son Kaiden moved to Israel, while my husband, myself, and our daughter moved to California.  Rosy and I kept in touch the whole time and when she announced that she was expecting baby number 2 I  couldn’t be more excited for her.  Then I found out we would both be relocating to Orlando Florida!  We were excited to be back together again.

Starting up this Photography business has been in the works for a while and I thought who better to be a model for a maternity session then Rosy and her family.  She looks so good right now and is patiently waiting for her daughter to arrive.

I found this beautiful location close to home called Chisholm Regional Park.  It is a beautiful wooded park with moss hanging from the trees.  I am a sucker for moss hanging from the trees I just love that look.  It is also located on a lake and so it gives you that beach ocean side feel if you want, a woodsy feel, or even a wide open field.  Just so much to choose from.  We were able to capture some beautiful pictures with my favorite being of their son Kaiden taking their picture he is a pro already.
