Orlando Family Photographer | Lifestyle Family Session

Having family photos taken can feel pretty stressful but I always try my very best to keep my families as relaxed as possible. The less worries and expectations that you have about how the session will go, the more enjoyable it will be. Easier said than done, I know! But really, let me do all of the hard work and just go with the flow! Families that don’t take things too seriously are the very best to photograph ;) Have fun with your spouse, let the kids enjoy themselves and let me take care of the rest!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing some amazing friends of mine. We started their session over by some beautiful oaks in the park.

Nothing is better than some real smiles…

September 2018 | Personal

Family Photojournalism and Family Documentary Photography speak to my heart but it's really hard for me to put into words exactly why. I guess it's the rawness. It's the honesty. It's the nostalgia. It's the acceptance. Accepting life for what it is and making a tangible memory out of it.

I love that I'm growing a collection of images for my children of their childhood. After all, they're the reason I pick up my camera in the first place.

It's been awhile since I committed to a few hours of personal storytelling. I picked up my camera today and documented my morning. I've been dealing with some anxiety lately. Add in a bunch of cardiology appointments and tests that are leaving me feeling more and more anxious. It's a vicious cycle. Picking up my camera on a rainy morning was just the medicine that I needed.

I know that a lot of you are interested in this type of photography for your own family but have fears and reservations. I get that. I sometimes feel vulnerable taking or sharing certain photos too! I hope that as you get to more about me, you will feel a little more comfortable and maybe even brave enough to try out a Documentary Style Session for yourself. In the meantime, you can check back to see what else I'm brave enough to share over here on the blog ;)

 

Winter Park Family Photographer | Mead Botanical Garden

This Sweet Mama was looking to capture some family photos and portraits of her son before his first big haircut.

Mom and Son Playing in Park at Sunset Orlando Family Photographer.jpg

Check out this little boy and his curls. Swoon. 

Toddler Boy With Long Hair Orlando Family Photographer.jpg

Like lots of kids, this little boy was not into the idea of a photo session. In fact, before we got started he made sure to let me know that he hates having his picture taken...

Game on!

Boy with Curly Long Hair Orlando Child Photographer.jpg

I love these sweet and playful family portraits. Lifestyle Family Sessions are a great way to have your family photographed in a way that shows off everyone's personality. 

Family Sitting in Grass at Mead Botanical Garden Lifestyle Family Photographer Winter Park.jpg

When Mom filled out her client questionnaire she used the words, "playful, foul mouthed, loud and obnoxious" to describe her family. I almost died laughing! Clearly, they were going to be my kind of people!

Family Playing in Mead Botanical Garden During Family Photo Session.jpg

This family let me do my thing and kept their cool even when this kiddo didn't want to participate. We played games, ran around and let him do his thing.

This little boy had one of the biggest imaginations EVER! So awesome!

Not too shabby for a kid that pretty much refused to have his photo taken ;)

And the grown ups -  well, they were beautiful inside and out and I had a wonderful time photographing them. I truly believe that the best photos are made when people are themselves and have trust in the process.

I shoot from my heart and when families go with the flow that's when the magic happens. It allows me to capture authentic portraits that are relaxed, honest and beautiful. 

If you're interested in a Family Session at home or on location, get in touch, I'd love to help you create beautiful memories for your family.

2 Kids and a Tub | 5 on 5

We moved into our house in 2015 and just finished renovating our crazy 80's master bathroom. The last few months have been a pain in the ass and even though the bathroom isn't quite finished yet it's finally 100% functional - which means our kids can finally take a bath.

Kids Feet in Clawfoot Tub Lifestlye Family Session Orlando.jpg

Having a big bath tub is awesome. I originally wanted it for selfish reasons BUT I can't tell you how much joy this tub brings the kids. 

Little Boy in Bathtub Orlando In Home Family Photographer.jpg

And I love how the big ass tub makes my little guy look kinda tiny. 

Close up of Water on Baby's Back in Bathtub.jpg

The kids have so much fun playing...

Getting out = bummer... 

Girl Wrapped Up in Towels at Bathtime Central Florida Documentary Photographer.jpg

I'm not gonna lie, this bathroom renovation sucked. We did a lot of the work ourselves, it took a long time (ahem, years) and there's still a bunch left to do (we still don't have a place to hang our towels...or the toilet paper). Still, I can't believe that after almost 3 years we're finally at a point where we're using our bathroom! It's actually kinda weird...but in a really good way. I love having this new space and I don't mind sharing it with the kids at all. In fact, I love that they're loving it too! Bath time has never been so much fun :)

Up next in the circle this month is Lancaster County Photographer Erin Berry. Don't forget to head over and see what she has to share!

 

Central Florida Family Photographer | Downtown Orlando Family Session

My Lifestyle Sessions are perfect if you're looking to have casual, beautiful and fun photos taken of your family. I want everyone to have a stress free experience and enjoy having their photo taken in a way that truly represents their family.

I met this family over at Walt Disney's Amphitheater Bandshell in Downtown, Orlando. I gotta say, I love photographing family's at home or in sentimental places. This was a new and really fun location!

It's no wonder this couple has 3 beautiful girls. Mom and Dad were both hot stuff. How adorable are they?!?!

Their little munchkin gave us a bit of a run for our money but Mom and Dad played it totally cool. I loved her spunky toddler personality and I kinda think she stole the show with her cuteness!

I always feel so lucky when I meet such awesome families. Mom told me they were thrilled with every photo and I can't tell you how happy that made my Mama heart :)

My Lifestyle Sessions are available year round. If you're ready to update your family photo with some real smiles and lots of laughs get in touch! I'd love to hear from you :)

 

Halloween | Personal

My girl was super excited to dress up as Mal from Disney's Descendants. God help me, she's really into villains. 

Girl in Mal Costume in Orlando Children's Portrait Photographer.jpg

She looks so grown up here, I can't stand it! 

Girl in Disney's Mal Costume Orlando_.jpg

My 2.5 year old went Trick or Treating dressed as Batman. He's starting to figure out what Trick or Treating is all about which made this year extra special. I loved his curiosity as these Trick or Treaters came down the street with their wagon and buckets of candy. 

Batman Trick or Treating In Orlando Family Photojournalism.jpg

He was super adorable pulling our own wagon. He couldn't wait to get started :)

Boy in Batman Costume Orlando Lifestyle Photographer.jpg

Even though this isn't a Documentary Shot (I'm totally breaking the rules here guys) I wanted to share our Trick or Treating crew. I set up my tripod and grabbed my remote to get this group shot before we hit the streets. There are so few photos of our family together so I'm really glad we stopped for a minute to grab this one. 

Family Portrait in Halloween Costumes Orlando Family Photographer.jpg

I think next year we'll have to break tradition and head out a little bit earlier so I can grab some photos of the kids ringing doorbells too!

Up next in this month's blog circle is Melissa Kayser, a St. Charles, MO Documentary Photographer . She's sharing some photos of her family as they explore the winner of the 2008 Guinness Book of World Record's Largest Maze in Wahiawa, HI. Head over and show her some love!

 

Orlando Newborn Photographer | Documentary Style Newborn Session

My heart aches because I wish I had storytelling photographs like these when my babies were small. Raw, simple and honest. I love being able to deliver a session like this to a client because I know how much they'll treasure each and every photograph. 

Newborn Baby Boy Orlando Photographer.jpg

Shooting these first time parents was extra special. I could feel their love and amazement over their sweet little boy. I can still remember that feeling from when my kids were born. It's that feeling you get when you look at your baby and you just can't believe how perfect they are. I love capturing that for families.

I seriously love shooting Documentary Style Newborn Sessions. They're the easiest way to capture life at home with your newborn. Believe it or not, there's a way to have a stress free photo session with your baby...and this is it :)

and you know their Mama's love those sweet newborn snuggles! If you're a Mom, you know the power of snuggles + baby smell. It's pretty much heaven on Earth.

Before heading out I grabbed some sweet details while Mom was holding her little man. I can't express how amazing this family was to be around. Their baby boy is so lucky. He hit the jackpot.

There you have it, my favorite way to capture life at home with a newborn. No stressing for Mom and Dad and a gallery full of the real life moments they shared with their baby. No silly props or Pinterest poses. Just real life and love.

World Breastfeeding Week | 5 on 5

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year from August 1st - 7th all over the globe to encourage breastfeeding and to improve the health of babies around the world.

Even though I grew up around plenty of babies, none of them were nursed by their mothers. At least not in front of me. Still, breastfeeding was something that seemed to come naturally the moment my daughter was placed in my arms.

As natural as breastfeeding felt, it wasn't always easy. At times it was painful, exhausting and I felt like giving up. I held strong, never wanting to disappoint the little nursling who depended on and vigorously enjoyed my milk. I knew in my heart that I'd regret quitting so I set small goals. Over time nursing became effortless and I was so grateful that I did not quit. Before I knew it my two week goal turned into two years.

Breastfeeding comes easily to some women. For others there are obstacles. For all of us, it is a journey. In honor of Breastfeeding Mom's and World Breastfeeding Week I'm sharing 5 breastfeeding stories for this month's 5 on 5 photo share. 

I photographed this baby's birth, and his very first nursing session. He's less than one hour old in this photograph:

I photographed this Mama nursing her 3 week old newborn:

And Pumping Moms, this one's for you: 

Empty Medela Bottles Breastfeeding.jpg

Breastfeeding has been a profoundly beautiful experience. An experience that bonded me with my children as well as other nursing mothers. 

My son is still nursing at 28 months. Soon he will wean, but for now I still hold him tight in my arms. I know all to well that these moments in motherhood are fleeting. If you're interested in capturing sweet and authentic memories like these in the comfort of your home, get in touch, I'd love to chat with you about a Motherhood Session.   

Next up in this month's blog circle is Margaret Albaugh Spokane Photographer Be sure to head on over and see what she has to share! 

 

Pillow Play | 5 on 5

This month I joined the ladies of the 5 on 5 Documentary Blog Circle to share a set of photos from a regular day at home. Normally I discourage the kind of crazy that leads to couch cushions on the floor followed by leaps and jumps but every once in awhile I'll grab my camera instead of being the "fun police" ;) 

These shots were taken and culled with my son in mind. He’s at this in-between stage in his life where he’s big enough to play rough but still very much a baby. I wanted to capture that along with the joy he experiences while playing with his favorite pal, his big sister. 

I ran for my camera the moment I saw him tearing the couch cushions apart…

Then I waited for a moment where I could get in close enough to feel like I was a part of the action too.

Sibling Photography Orlando, FL

Being sure to capture him among the pillows.

Rough landings and all!

Family photojournalism

When I realized that I was able to truly capture my children without posing or directing them it changed the entire way I approached photography. 

Nothing extraordinary is happening in this set but it doesn't mean these moments aren't worth documenting. I've captured my son's authentic joy as he bonds with his big sister.

When I look back at the photos I've taken over the last two years I don't just see cheesing faces. I'm reminded of the toys that were loved, the games that were played, the clothes that were worn and the way life felt during that particular time. In the background I can see the slow transformation of our home as we continue to tackle projects big and small. For me, it's all about being able to look back and remember things just as they were. I'm so glad to have these photos for my kids and they already enjoy looking through the photos that I’ve taken of them. 

Sharing next in this month's blog circle is Melissa Kayser, a St. Charles, MO documentary family photographer Head over and show her some love! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Newborn Twins | Orlando Florida Newborn Photographer

My heart skipped a beat when this Mama told me what she wants to remember when she looks back at this time in her life. She told me that it's, "the chaotic, fun times, the hard but rewarding moments, all of our efforts that show the huge love we have for our kids, our little apartment that we can call home, humble but full of memories, the beginning of this journey with kids." 

Orlando Family Lifestyle Session.jpg

Her words spoke to my heart on so many levels. Documentary Style Sessions are all about letting go of expectations and capturing reality. It's about embracing and loving the life that you live - even when the words you use to describe it are hard, chaotic and humble. There's beauty to be found all around us. It's found in the spaces that we live and in the moments between us and our children. 

Orlando Newborn Documentary Session.jpg
End Table With Newborn Twins Orlando Newborn Session.jpg

These sessions are meant to be a peek into our lives. They'll serve as a reminder of the things we did, what we were like and how our lives felt. It's not only a gift for us but for the generations to follow. 

These parents made having a toddler and newborn twins looks easy. Okay, maybe easy isn't exactly the right word...but their teamwork persevered and their loving personalities and patience shined through the entire session.

At times, things did get a little chaotic: imagine a hungry baby x2 but shooting with a documentary approach helped keep the vibe relaxed for everyone. Mom was busy nursing like a champ for a lot of our time together and Dad stepped in to help with bottles and diaper changes. Big Sister stayed close to her new siblings and loved on them along with Mom and Dad.

It was an absolute pleasure hanging out with this family. Once again I photographed a family brave enough to embrace the Documentary Style and it allowed me to capture their "right now", their "ordinary" and their "love".

Documentary Family Session | Orlando Family Photographer

This family totally embraced the documentary style session. They did their thing and I photographed them. It was a documentary photographer's dream :) 

I photograph my documentary families the same exact way I photograph my own. My approach includes crouching, crawling, climbing and a lot of other awkward and strange positions that usually puts the people I'm photographing at ease. 

Anyway, I love that these sessions are as honest as they are unique. I get to capture families living. For real. I'm capturing a story. Their story. I'm freezing a moment in time for these families and to me, that's really, really special.

Lifestyle Family Session | Orlando, FL

There's two reasons I love shooting documentary style sessions. The first is because I'm free to capture what I see and feel and the second is because I really enjoy capturing a family in the place they call home. Eventually the people I'm shooting either forget that I'm there, or are comfortable enough to start being themselves. That's when the magic happens and the results are ordinary moments that have been captured beautifully and in a way that will take my clients back in time when they look at their photos. It's about preserving more than just how things looked but how life felt. 

Kids in a Field Orlando Lifestyle Photographer.jpg

Before I started shooting with a documentary approach I photographed my clients on location. At the time I enjoyed it because I didn't know there was any other way to shoot. I was doing what other photographer's were doing by posing my clients and doing what I assumed they expected. It turned out that my favorite images from those sessions were always the in-between moments when everyone forgot they were being photographed or just stopped caring. It was in those short moments that I was able to capture something honest and real.

Sisters Playing in a Field Orlando Lifestyle Photographer.jpg

When I began documenting my life at home and photographing my client's without direction there was a lot more honest and real being captured. Those images, those were the ones that really made me feel something. Feeling something and connecting with my clients - that's what inspires me as an artist. For me, it has nothing to do with what happens when a family poses and smiles for the camera and everything to do with what happens when a family is living in the moment. That's what I want to capture. 

As much as I'm shooting for my clients I'd be lying if I said I wasn't also shooting for myself. I shoot from my heart and not from a list of Pinterest poses.

Mom and Kids Play in a Field Orlando Lifestyle Photographer.jpg

I'm the photographer that wants to be in the moment with you and your family. The one who will make a fool of herself just to make you feel more at ease. The one who will make friends with your kids and let them be 100% themselves. The one who will capture more than what your family looked like but how you made each other feel...

In Home Family Session | Central Florida Documentary Photographer

Sessions in and around a client's home are my absolute favorite. Why? Because there's no place like home. Because my favorite childhood photos are the ones that were taken at home. Because to me, real life is way more interesting and beautiful than anything you'll ever find on Pinterest.

Family Session at Home Orlando Photographer.jpg

I spent a Saturday morning with this family a few weeks before their second baby's due date. I can still remember how special those last few days were with my daughter, those very last days when we were still just a family of 3.
