I was so glad to hear from Michelle a couple of weeks ago. She wanted to have fall and holiday themed family photos of herself, husband Renato and son Lucas. Even their pup Toby came along. We decided to take the photos in Winter Park and even though there happened to be a festival going on, we found our quiet spots and made some amazing and special images. There is just something about the late afternoon light in the Winter Park area that is pure magic. I added a little faded vintage tone to most of these photos to give even more character.
Lucas and my son Liam were actually born one day apart so it was really fun to photograph a little boy who reminded me so much of my own son. (I’ve actually photographed a few little ones lately who are all September babies!) Lucas was so adorable and mom Michelle really put together some cute outfits for him, including one with a hat and tie. I also brought along some wooden letters to spell out “one” since this is his first Christmas being one. He really had fun during the photo session and I hope to see him again soon! It’s so important to take photos at this age because they really do grow so quickly.
Parente Family, you are such a beautiful and kind family. I hope you enjoy these photos for years to come and that we get together again in the very near future. And Lucas, stay sweet and charming just as you are now!
