It is always special for me to be able to photograph long time friends with their families.  It is amazing and wonderful to see friends have babies and grow into loving mothers.  I remember the many conversations with my sorority sisters at UCF discussing what we thought our families would be when we “grew up”.  Amazing how fast we grew up!  It seems like just yesterday we were free spirited college seniors with not a care in the world planning our next night out in between term papers and tests.  Now we wouldn’t give up our families for anything and live our lives for them.

Michele is one of those sorority sisters that will always be a friend and here are some of my favorite moments from her session with her children and her parents.

I first met Heather and Mallory last year for their first mommy and me session with me.  Mallory has grown up so much and I was so happy to capture them again this year for their mommy and me session together.  It is amazing how quickly the little ones grow.  It seems like my Olivia was just one years old and now she is an 8 year old acting like a 15 year old.  Capturing these times between a mom and her daughter is a very special honor for me.

 

I met with Donna and Eddie at their beautiful home and took pictures on their gorgeous dock.  Dexter their family dog even warmed up to me and was a champ for photos.  Here are some of my favorites from their maternity session in Windermere, Florida last weekend.

I was so excited to work with Bleu Bird Designs and Birdie Baby Boutique for a product session.  The dresses by Bleu Bird were absolutely beautiful.  The colors were so fun and the girls LOVED them.  Not that Tallulah is a fashionista yet, but she kept saying “pretty”.  That means she approves! The made to match hair accessories and broach for the sashes were by Birdie Baby and are gorgeous as always.  Head on over to both of their Etsy stores to check out their fabulous work.  They both have perfect items for photo shoots with me!

Amy’s maternity session turned out amazing!  Amy was so relaxed and glowing and it showed through her pictures.  The light peeked through the clouds just enough to make the clouds look so pretty.  I was a little worried that it would pour on us, but it held off for the entire session.  Here are some of my favorites from Amy’s maternity session at the beach.
