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…

We headed over to a field on the other side of the park as the sun began to set.

And some more laughs and hugs - my favorite way to finish up a session!

I hope you enjoyed this peek into a fabulous session. If you’re looking for a family photographer with a relaxed and casual approach, get in touch! The weather in Florida this time of year is awesome for outdoor sessions :)

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

Check out this little boy and his curls. Swoon.

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!

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.

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!

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. 

 

NAP Kids | Orlando Child Photographer

These portrait sessions just for kids are so fun! 

I hung out with this future heartbreaker for about an hour in Downtown Orlando.

How sweet is this kiddo?!?! 

I really enjoy hanging out with these little ones and capturing their adorable faces and unique personalities! 

If you're thinking about having portraits of your little one taken or need headshots don't be shy and say hello! I'd love to chat with you about an NAP Kids Session :) 

 

Halloween | Personal

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!
