Susie’s extended family!

I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend Susie’s extended family a couple weeks ago (before my vacation, which has resulted in the after-vacation-catch-up-phase.) They were all adorable, but I can’t resist the baby and his michelin man look! We had a rain scare in the beginning of the session, but then it just stopped and gave way to …

Keil family all the way from Alaska!

The Keil family contacted me from Alaska when they started planning their summer vacation. They have been traveling all over the place this summer and I met them in Melbourne Beach on their way through Florida. I think these children were two of the most cooperative kids (aside from older ones) I have ever worked with and they had such …

The Scarborough Family

My good friends from Orlando were visiting New Smyrna Beach last week and I went up to get some family portraits for them. Sheli and I worked together in Orlando with Young Life there and it has now been 7 years since my family moved away to Clearwater (then here.) Our experience in Orlando with Sheli and Jason and Young …

Jennifer, LeBrandon and Baby #2…

I met Jennifer’s family in Melbourne Beach last week for a maternity session. The little guy here is almost 2 I believe so he will be very close in age to his new brother/sister. Jennifer looked beautiful and her brother in law came along but daddy is currently deployed and on active duty outside the country. She said that her …

The Esposito Family

I got to shoot the Esposito Family pictures at their home last week. I was super excited to do this because Mrs. Esposito is my daughter’s school principal. Somehow I think we survived 3 years of preschool without me having to be called in to “the principal’s office.” My Mary has a good dose of determination and down right fiesty-ness. …

First Birthday Addison

I met up with Addison and her family in Vero Beach, well almost 2 weeks ago – I have been feverishly finishing lots of orders this week! We had a great time, following Addison around the park, watching her stuff her face with cake and changing her outfits just for fun – which is what you do with little girls …

The Diaz Family

I met the Diaz family in Melbourne Beach last week for a family photography session. We had one of those super clear blue sky days which presents it’s beauty along with it’s challenges. It worked out great. Just before I shot the photo above I told these siblings that even though they may be in a tough season of practically …

Baby Sasha is 1

I had the pleasure of photographing a first birthday session with this cutie Sasha last week. As I was editing these I called my husband over to look and he said, “Wow, she looks like a doll.” How true is that – and coming from a guy even! We did the shoot at the family home in Viera. She was …

The Rutherford’s

Before I meet a new client for a session I usually do a quick scan of all our emails to get a good handle on everything we have discussed and just a general feeling of the people I’m about to finally meet (assuming we haven’t met before.) When I did my search for emails from the Rutherford family, I realized …

The Bee Family

I had the pleasure of photographing my friend Noelle’s family last weekend at Ryckman Park. It was super crazy windy so I found a spot of shelter and we pretty much stayed put! Since the family isn’t all together that often – some of them being here from out of town – we didn’t want to reschedule. I don’t think …

The Loftis Family

I photographed the Loftis family in Melbourne Beach last week. It was valentines day and even better than that they were celebrating their wedding anniversary. One of the biggies and I am so so bad with numbers (they don’t stick in my head!) that I can’t remember if it is 50 or 60 but judging by how great these guys …

The Colbert Family

I shot the Colbert Family last weekend at Ryckman Park in Melbourne Beach. They have these adorable little boys, full of energy and personality. I really like their cute hats and the burst of color in their mommy’s sweater. I think we had to cancel this session twice (or three?) times due to various reasons so it felt like a …

The Kuch Family

I met the Kuch family last week in Melbourne Beach at Ryckman Park. The last time I photographed their family, there was four of them. So, it was fun seeing how much the kids have grown and how sweet thier “new” little sister is. It was no problem getting her to smile! I put a few storyboards together here, just …

My Girl is FIVE

This is my Mary and for some reason it is hard for me to believe she is five. The first child is “supposed” to get big. The second, my only girl, well she is forever 2 in my brain, tiny sprigs of pig tails sticking out from her head, pudgy legs, ferocious energy, infectious laugh, determined personality. I guess the …

The Infanzon Family

I have been scheduling and rescheduling with the Infanzon family since November I think so it was great to finally meet each other and get these family photos taken! They moved here from Spain, which is my favorite place in the world so far, so I enjoyed just listening to their accents! These sweet little girls were beautiful in their …

The Williams Family

I had a great time with the Williams family last weekend at Ryckman Park in Melbourne Beach, Florida. I met them through my daughter’s preschool where I photograph all the individual and class portraits. Their daughter is about to graduate from college with an education major and needed some senior portraits so we just combined that into the family session. …

The Strand Family

I met with the Strand family before Christmas in Melbourne Beach to take their family photos before dad is deployed and while they are still a family of three (mom is expecting!) What a cute family and this little one is precious! Can’t wait to photograph the maternity and newborn for the next baby! I want to say too how …

Rodriguez Family

I shot the Rodriguez family portraits last week in Melbourne Beach. The whole family was together for an early Christmas and the youngest daughter, Jessica, arranged for a family session as a gift. It was a cold and windy day but we came away with some good stuff! This one above was not even staged, which I love. I have …

I met up with the Siniscal family last week at Ryckman park. There are a few reasons this family session was so fun. First of all, I grew up 2 doors down from Brandy and second I shot her wedding portraits right here in the same park a few years ago. I haven’t seen them since then because they live …

Baby Raemi!

I photographed beautiful baby Raemi last week – finally! We didn’t get to do these as early as planned because our scheduled session was during the week my whole family had the flu – and that’s no good for babies! So, we had to reschedule but it turned out just fine because what a cutie she is! I can’t get …
