Orlando Family Photography : Lately I have been picking up some sessions in Tampa, all thanks to an amazing family who I recently photographed there spreading the word for me. I have family in the Tampa area, so I do end up there often, regardless. This is my second time shooting at this specific location, and the sunsets and views there are out of this world.

About Orlando Family Photography

Although I am an Orlando family photographer, traveling to Tampa for shoots is actually very fun for me. I get to check out new locations plus my daughter and I get to spend time with my niece and sister each time we go! So, when the White family contacted me, I was happy to accommodate!   She had a friend who recently did a session with me, and wanted to use the same location since it was so magical.

When the White family arrived they were so very sweet, and surprised me by showing up with their adorable pup! We started how I usually do,  with a couple of posed portraits then spent about 45 minutes walking around getting candid shots of them as a family, as well as shots of their little girl. Their daughter actually reminded so much of my own, all about wandering and exploring everything around her. It was so easy for me to shoot her – since I chase my own around with my camera frequently. 🙂

The session ended with some gorgeous photos by the lake. When you have beautiful trees, birds, sunset – basically everything nature has to offer… magic really happens. You can scroll down and see for yourself!

I just have to add that I am so grateful for the clients I have worked with, and the connections I have made with them. There is nothing like!

Newborn Lifestyle Session : I love being able to visit clients homes in those first moments with their new babies, especially when it is a friends that I have known since day 1. When she asked to do a lifestyle session, I was definitely more than happy to do it!

About Luka’s Newborn Lifestyle Session

Luka’s arrival was big. Besides having very excited parents, he also had 3 aunts, as well as two baby loving first time grandparents anxiously waiting to meet him. Just imagine that, first baby of four daughters.

When I arrived to the session Luka was cuddled up like a little ball in his dads arm. I had already heard rumors of how squishy and cuddly he was, and when I met him in person he did not disappoint. He is seriously the most cuddly guy I have ever seen. It was tempting to just pick him up and squeeze him… but,  I knew if I gave in to that no work was getting done.

Besides being so cuddly, Luka was also very sleepy! I believe he was awake for about 2 minutes the entire session.  His mom tried all the old tricks to wake him up, but he was not having it. It all worked out perfectly. We were able to capture his true essence in his first week of life, as well as how in love his parents already were.

Seeing a life long friend loving on her new baby was so rewarding. She has such a peaceful maternal instinct, and to be there and experience those moments with her left me with a great feeling.

Oh, and I also can not forget to mention Sadie the dog, she may argue she was the first child and decided there was no chance she would be left out of this session. 🙂

Orlando Birth Photography : Home births in Orlando are becoming more and more popular as people choose to take the natural route. I was honored when this mother asked me to document their home water delivery. We had an initial meeting to get to know each other, and decided to move forward from there!

About Orlando Birth Photography

On September 30 at 7:30am I received the phone call that Emilly was having strong labor contractions. I grabbed my bag and headed out the door with excitement.

When I arrived it was such a peaceful and calm environment in her room. There were essential oils burning, meditation music playing and her best friend / doula and husband were there offering her constant comfort as she worked through each contraction. Emilly was exhausted because she had already been experiencing strong contractions for two full days, so the midwife recommended she take a nap to regain her energy for babies arrival.

It was a long day of trying to progress to 9cm. Emilly took walks with her best friend and tried all of the different positions to speed her labor up, but Baby V was still feeling so comfortable in her mommies belly. In the meantime I got to enjoy some fun time with her daughter, delicious home cooked meals from her mom, and some play time with her dogs.

Fast forward to 9:30pm. Becky from Sweet Baby Midwifery decided to put a wrap on Emilly’s belly, the wrap pushes Baby V downwards to help Emilly dilate more rapidly. Becky played a labor meditation after, and this was a game changer. Baby V was on her way shortly after. Becky and her team filled up the bath got Emilly in there and 45 minutes and one amazing push later Baby V was in a new world!

This was such an amazing experience to witness, the love and patience that was present the entire time was a sight to see. Take a look at the photos, they will tell the story better than I can 🙂

This summer I started a little project. It began one evening when my daughter and husband were playing in the pool. I had just gotten home and had my camera handy so, I started to click away as he tossed her up in the air. She was SO happy and so was he.

When I sat down at my computer and began to view the photos, I realized how incredibly special they were. These were those moments that one day I would look back and realize had just passed us right by. Those little in between the big stuff moments. That is when I decided to document our 95 days of summer. Within these 95 days I knew our daughter would turn three years old, we would visit Colorado, North Carolina, and wherever else our summer took us, or didn’t take us at all.

As summer is coming to an end, I have been reflecting on what this project has meant to me. It has meant much more than I could have initially imagined. Although I always try to take life in and be present, there were moments that I did not realize I would one day miss. Like the way she drops every single book on the floor while choosing the right one to read, or the way she prefers to sleep on the floor most nights and gets upset when the dog tries to steal her blanket, the pictures on her blue bedroom walls that I chose because I thought they would make her feel happy, how we spent every rainy day outside, and how I realized she rarely wears more than underwear every… single… day. These little things matter to me, I want to remember them!

So, I wanted to share this project and hopefully just inspire someone else to try, even if just for 10 days. Train yourself to stop what you are doing and just snap a quick shot of whatever is happening. It could be calm or complete chaos. Some of these photos today may seem boring or uneventful. But, I promise one day they will mean the most.

Day 1 – This is a serious work out, but the amount of giggles it creates makes it totally worth it. “Again, Again, Again, one more time!”
dad and daughter in the poolDay 2 –  Although this is day 2 of summer, we have actually spent about 3 weeks straight in our pool. This year the pool has been significantly more popular than the passed summers.
95 days of summerDay 3 – “Posicles” are a daily request lately, and how do you say no to a kitty cute as this one? My favorite is when she is so focused on pushing it up more to eat that she goes cross-eyed.girl eating popsicleDay 4 – Today we have to take Maia to her babysitters house. I always knew baths were not her favorite… but the look on her face here is priceless.

Day 5 – We arrived in Miami for my husbands 40th birthday celebration, today. There were 20 close friends and family attending. I thought I would get some really fun shots. But, it turns out in the early morning hustle of leaving our house I did remember my camera… but not my camera battery. So, I figured it is better to have something rather than nothing, right? Right. Cell Phone Photo > Nothingcell phone photo miamiDay 6 – Another day in Miami and a visit to Key Biscane… a beautiful place, and another cell phone picture to remember it.

Day 7 – Back home from our trip to Miami. The whole ride home it rained, and all we heard was “can I play in the rain?”. We said of course as long as it is not lighting. We get home… and it stops raining! Turns out a sprinkler can be just as fun.

Day 8 – Today we had a tea party. These little garden friend will probably sit here another two weeks until one day Kiley walks outside and no longer feels the need to offer more tea.

Day 9 – Went out for a walk in our neighborhood this evening. I was told she is ‘Ariel’s sister’ and she was using her magic wand to gather flowers for me ‘Ariel’s mom’._JMP7184

Day 10 – I have learned succulents are basically the only plants I can keep alive. She always wants to help, and I always find a way to let her._JMP7256

Day 11 – Today we are heading to “Nawth Colina”. We arrived at my sisters house, who we are traveling with and just killing time until my sister gets off of work.

Day 12 –  We finished the second leg of our trip to our families house in NC today… with an extra 2.5 hours thanks to traffic. A lot of pent up energy so these girls decided to dance their pants off for about 45 minutes. Everyone was belly laughing the entire time.

Day 13 – Christmas In July – Downtown West Jefferson, NC. Live Music, Mountains, Magicians, Vendors, Snow Cones & Lemonade.

Day 14 – A visit to Grayson Highlands, one of my all time favorite places, for a small hike.  Last visit all of the moms were pregnant, this visit we got to see their new babies. This place is seriously magical._JMP9039

Day 15 – It’s the fourth of July, we are still in NC. We were invited to our families friends Christmas Tree Farm on the river. They have a huge celebration every year. Kiley immediately gravitated to the muddiest area. I resisted initially but gave up. She had a blast.

Day 16 –  This photo was not taken today. It is just another photo to from the trip. My mom was taken to the ER then ICU and this image just makes me feel happy.happy little girl

Day 17 –

Day 18- Not going to lie… I avoided it as long as I could, but this girl is wholeheartedly aboard the Frozen train. I borrowed it for the trip to and from the mountains and she watched it about 12 times. She was SO excited to pick out an Elsa and Anna doll that I decided to bring my camera along._JMP0120

Day 19 –  I didn’t have the heart to leave our dog out of the photo while Kiley plans her next trip to Spain. _JMP0191 copy 2

Day 20 – Our little super hero in her stylish Minnie undies. She ran around the house and jumped off the bed so many times she broke out into a sweat._JMP0229Day 21 – It was even too hot in the sun to be in the pool today, so it was a day filled with a water hose, buckets, dog baths and shade.
_JMP0312 copyDay 22 – A trip to Gatorland is never complete without visiting the aviary. She has a love hate relationship with being covered in birds.
_JMP0486 copyDay 23 – Superhero Kiley came back today and she was killing me more than ever. We took a trip to the park and she told me she needed her came on so she could fight fires with it, then continued to show me how she does so.

Day 24 – We ran into an old family friends while grabbing pizza in Downtown Winter Garden. She decided to hang with us, and I think it made both of their days.

_JMP0755 copy 2Day 25 – For about two weeks now these have been the sleeping arrangements. _JMP0796 copy

Day 26 – We took a trip to Tampa and decided to stop at a park in Lakeland… it was 102 degrees. We both very much agreed that we needed some ice cream.Day 27 – As if she didn’t love our pool enough. Our evening swim of the summer. _JMP1666 copyDay 28 – This trip to the roller skating rink had very good intentions. But, we quickly learned that just because they carry your shoe size… does not mean you can skate. 🙂_JMP1768 copyDay 29 – Typical… taking turns spying on our neighbors dogs.girl and her boxerDay 30 – Today she caught a bug and is not feeling well at all. But, I could not pass up this sweet photo._JMP1944 copyDay 32 – No photos yesterday, just caring for our sick girl. But, today she requested to lay in daddy’s float in the pool. So, recovery is looking promising. _JMP2032 copyDay 36 – We are jumping to day 36. It was a very rough weekend with Kiley not feeling better, then me catching a bug as well… all while attempting to go to a wedding in Charleston.  But, today we are really feeling like ourselves again and we couldn’t be happier… and neither could Maia 😉_JMP2340 copy Day 37 – Had a laid back day hanging around the house.
