Baby Asha

I photographed Asha’s newborn pictures last week and what a cutie she is. She was a premie and even though she was around a month old at our shoot, she was still tiny, like 5-6 lbs. She has an older brother, Ravi, who you’ll see below. He is only 15 mths and I had photographed his newborn as well so …

The White Family

I met up with the White family in Melbourne last weekend for some extended family shots and various other family portraits while they had all been together for Thanksgiving. Hmmm that means it was weekend before last. So things are slightly busy for me right now! I know this family because I shot Brittney’s pregnancy and then Cason’s newborn here. …

Pet Photography – Captain Morgan

I met up with the Buchanan family last weekend for some pet photography. They have a precious black lab named Captain Morgan who they wanted to get some special photos with. Captain Morgan is a little bit weak in his old age so they carried him down the boardwalk, and because he is hard of hearing we had to get …

Holstein Family

I photographed the Holstein family last week in Melbourne Beach. They were naturally at ease in front of the camera and around each other which made things easy and fun. There is a definite pattern (which the Holsteins have done a good job ignoring!) where families stop having their portraits taken together, as their children get older, as busy schedules …

The Hammock Family

I shot the Hammock family photos at Ryckman Park in Melbourne Beach. They are such nice people. Mrs. Hammock is one of my daughter’s teachers at school this year and Mary loves to talk about her because she is the “silly teacher.” In fact, Mary loves to impersonate her New York accent and I think she has completely switched to …

Hamelin Family

I met up with the Hamelin family a week or so ago and got some fun family photos. (Still catching up the blog -and of course your print orders- from the dreaded Gray-family-flu-09!) They have three kids similar ages to mine so I saw my own family dynamics in their family throughout our session. The cutest thing was the “baby” …

The Cimino Family

I shot the Cimino family pictures a week (actually almost 2 weeks?) ago. Things have been a little crazy around my house lately with the flu passing around to every member of my family! I was the last to come down with it. The Cimino’s are special to me, good friends I’ve had since forever. They were over from Tampa …

The Weatherspoon Family

I photographed the Weatherspoon Family photos on Melbourne Beach last week. They are just a sweet sweet family and were a pleasure to work with. They really had a lot of fun together and have a wonderful spirit of togetherness and such positive ways with each other. Enjoy the highlights! He has an expression for everything, I just love those …

The Marot Family

I met the Marot family at Ryckman park last week in Melbourne Beach for family photos. They are such a cute family and really had a great time (even when they were chasing the kids all over the place.) That is just what kids do and it is better off letting them do it, but we wrangled them in for …

Nadija, Marina and Marley

I had the privilege of photographing these beautiful young girls last week on Melbourne Beach. Marley and Marina are sisters and Nadija is Marina’s best friend (above.) Also, to make it even more fun, I’ve been friends with Nadija’s mom Erika since we were in middle school… Go Scotties. Correction: Elementary – Go Panthers. It was a super windy day …

The Patterson Families!

My good friend Becky has this big huge family. I was so excited when she asked me to photograph all of them. Then I remembered that they are all super-creative and I got a little nervous. Most of my clients don’t have a strong vision for what they want going into a shoot but I knew these guys would and …

The McHugh Family

I met with the McHugh family last week for family portraits on the Indian River. This session was a gift to Mrs. McHugh, one of our teacher gifts last year. She was Logan’s kindergarten teacher and by summer he was reading up a storm, big chapter books! That’s not the only thing he learned in kindergarten but there’s not enough …

The Radcliff Family

I shot the Radcliff family photos in Melbourne Beach last weekend. They are a super cute little family! Sometimes toddlers can present unique challenges at the beach but despite that we still came away with beautiful images. The important part anyway is that we capture kids being themselves, even if that means they aren’t always interested in the camera. Enjoy …

The Crovo Family

I met up with my dear friends the Crovo’s last week for some family photography. Actually more like child photography since we were missing Terry (bummer, he had to work late at the office!) Shana is an RN plus a personal trainer and fellow small business owner with Beachside Bootcamp in Satellite Beach. Seriously, you cannot get a better workout, …

The McCart Family

I met the McCart family last week on the beach for family portraits. They have these really beautiful children, twins just over a year and a six year old girl. They definitely have their hands full but the children seem very content and well behaved and of course loved. I think we had their session booked for a couple months …

Caleb and Ethan

I photographed Caleb and his baby brother Ethan at their home in Malabar last weekend. I wasn’t that far from my house yet felt like I was in the country! Seeing Caleb’s enthusiasm for the ducks, goats, birds and just nature in general made me wish I was raising my family there! The first image above is an example of …

Baby Noah

Oh how I love babies! I love them now more than ever. I think the appreciation must just grow stronger as your own children grow older and you realize how precious that time is. There is only that short window of time where there are no “time outs” no “stop whining, eat your dinner, be nice to your sister…” Just …

The DeVriendt Family

I shot the DeVriendt family pictures at their home in Suntree last weekend. They have a 3 y/o girl and twin boys who are just over a year. I am lucky to have known Erin since we were in middle school and it’s so fun to reconnect now and see her beautiful family grow. Last time I photographed the kids, …

Misty’s Family

I love my children’s teachers! Every year, they go above and beyond to provide patient, caring education for my sweet little ones. At the end of the year, if I think they would like it, I usually give them a free session including a package of prints. So it was my pleasure to photograph “Miss Misty” and her daughter and …

Preschool Pictures!

I had the pleasure of spending three days last week at First United Methodist Preschool in Melbourne. This is the best preschool ever; it’s my family’s third year there and we love it! Mary will actually graduate and move on to kindergarten next year but just in time for little Davis to start in the two-year-old class! I started providing …
