Eileen and Brent

After every photo session I do, I get a wave of energy afterwards which lasts for hours. Sometimes I might have started the session a little tired from the day but as soon as I get going, I am in my zone. The power of love (am I hearing an echo of Celine Dion in my ears) between two people makes me so happy to capture and it’s precisely why I love my job. The smiles and gazes between Brent and Eileen were amazing! They were here with family from all over the country to celebrate their recent wedding in September. We only had about thirty minutes to take family photos and another thirty minutes for portraits of just Eileen and Brent. We worked fast as the sun began to set over the beautiful grounds of the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes, before the family’s dinner reservation. I am so pleased with our results and these are just a few family moments plus some magical pauses between Eileen and Brent that evening. I truly hope you both enjoy these images and your first year as a joyfully married couple!

Goodman Family

Don’t you love cute little toddlers wearing Mickey Mouse costumes? Or how about if they’re dressed as a tiny and too-cute-for-words sailor? You’ll have to thank the wonderful Goodman family for providing every dose of cuteness you’ll see below. The group was here on vacation during the absolute best time of year here in Florida, at least to me. I love fall and we get a small sampling of autumn breezes that certainly make you feel like a leaf might be chasing after your heels. And sometimes, wouldn’t you know it, the leaves really are there. This family enjoyed their rest and relaxation in Florida and having a photo session was a wonderful way to bring all of the fun together in a lasting way. And as usual the Grand Floridian Resort really provided serene and beautiful settings for a collection of family memories. Thank you all and I hope to see you again for another session soon!

Schrode Family

Here I’m sharing special photos of three cozy Schrode families who were together for some well deserved vacation time here in Orlando. We were hiding from the rain that day but Neal and Lindsey’s son James was definitely a barrel of sunshine throughout the entire session. He smiles, smiles, and smiles some more! He just couldn’t stop and it was pretty amazing. He’s also an expert at climbing trees so that was a lot of fun. An adventurous family, the Schrode crew also entertained my idea of safely taking a photo in the street. Grandma Schrode suggested an Abbey Road style photo which we did as well. I hope if you get together again that it’s very soon, and that I’m invited! You all were such a relaxed family and wonderful to take photos with. Hope you enjoy these photos and moments as much as I do. Safe travels!

Angela and Mike

Angela and Mike are the sweetest and most fun couple! They were here in Orlando celebrating their four year anniversary and we met at Downtown Disney to take photos and take advantage of some autumn and Halloween scenery. That was very fitting since they both love Halloween. It’s actually Angela’s favorite holiday and they were married on Halloween as well! It was so great to see these two having fun during their photo session, smiling and giggling. Mike said he doesn’t giggle, but I say he does! And Angela is beautiful and her smile really brightened up Downtown Disney that day! I was so glad to meet them and capture lasting memories. After talking with them more and getting a feel for their personalities, I thought they would like a vintage tone on their photos so I gave their photos a warm and cozy film look while also providing them with the full color photos too. Angela and Mike, I hope to see you on another vacation soon!
