Hailey Jo was just 8 days new for her newborn session with me.  She was the sweetest little one and was such a wonderful little poser for the camera.  I was super excited when Amy asked to include some outdoor newborn setups with her session.  I love outdoor newborn pictures so much and living in Central Florida there is no limit to the possibilities for gorgeous settings.  Here are some of my favorites from my session with Hailey Jo.

I loved meeting little miss Georgia the other week.  She was so super adorable with those cheeks and slept almost the entire session.  I think she is just the perfect addition to make her family a family of 6.  Here are some of my favorites from my session with Georgia.

I am so happy I am taking the time to get caught up on my personal editing.  I can not describe how much these pictures have made me smile while editing them.  My baby love Tallulah and her sisters celebrating her birthday.  It makes me so proud that I could create this memory for my girls to have forever.  Moments like these are what it is all about.  Love my girls!

I am so guilty of getting caught up with client editing and I put my own pictures on the back burner.  I am going to make a serious effort to get caught up with my own personal editing over the next few weeks.   I can’t wait to share some of my personal memories over the last few months on my blog.  I will confess that when I edit my own pictures I have such a hard time going in any specific order.  A large part of that is my constant interrupter named Tallulah who has entered that all too familiar, wonderful age said so sarcastically,  of two and a half.

Today I am sharing a little bit of our summer vacation to upstate New York.  When I saw this field I knew I was getting my own girls in it before we left for a session at sunset.  My girls were good sports after a little bit of “bugaphobia” dealing with the extreme heat that night.  You would think coming all the way from Florida we would have caught a break on some heat going up to New York, but it was hotter up there than at home.  Crazy.

I know it looks sometimes like I favor one of my girls in each session, but it really is just how the sessions go.  It always seems one of the three will be having fun while the others are just letting me take a few.  This evening Tallulah was having so much fun playing with the flowers.  My older two just wanted to go get ice cream.  Oh well, I just go with the situation and make the best of it.

I am super excited to announce my 2013 holiday mini sessions this year! There will be three separate themed mini sessions on 3 selected dates in November.  All of the mini sessions will be styled and themed.  These mini sessions will be $85 with a non-refundable deposit of $25 to secure your spot.  The $25 will then be deducted from your balance due at the session.  Exact locations will be given upon booking.  All sessions will be delivered via  downloadable gallery.  You may upgrade to a backup CD for an additional $10 per CD.  I will also be offering card packages, prints, and gallery wraps for gifting this year as well!

The first date is November 16th, 2013 for Florida holiday beach mini sessions in the afternoon.  Think cozy snuggles on the beach with a quilt, mugs of hot chocolate, and other fun details.  These sessions will be located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

The second date is November 23rd for Hot Cocoa stand mini sessions in an open field in Orlando, Florida.  This date will have morning and afternoon sessions available.

The third dates are November 30th and December 1st for Christmas Tree Farm mini sessions.  This is a holiday weekend, but it is the first weekend the tree farm will be open and will be held in the afternoons.  I want to make sure you have your pictures in time for my December 8th print and card ordering deadline for 2013.

Of course I will still be booking full sessions through December 8th, 2013.  I will not take any sessions between December 9th, 2013 and January 2nd 2014 so that I can spend my time making the holidays magical for my three little girls.
