Rayan and Sheila

I cannot imagine being any luckier than this, right here and right now. I have the most thoughtful and sweet clients, whether for maternity or family portraits, or a complete wedding. Rayan and Sheila are just sweet and amazing people! They are expecting a little girl and judging by how Sheila’s tummy looks to me at seven months, their daughter is going to be the most precious tiny thing. How exciting, life changing and dear. I feel that Rayan and Sheila’s photos show their love in such a beautiful light. Not only will they cherish these memories forever, but so will their daughter. That is one of the reasons I love maternity photography so much because I like to think about what the children will think about the photos one day. How amazed they’ll be to see such wonderful images of their parents! And to think they will look back on the photos time and time again. Then they’ll show the images to their own children one day. It’s a lifetime of love.

Orlando Maternity Photographer

During Rayan and Sheila’s maternity session, some interesting things happened. First we found a yellow and pink rose that someone placed in the ground. It was a sweet surprise! Later the best part unfolded. There was a blue and black butterfly that kept fluttering around us. It would sometimes fly away from us but kept coming right back. That was a first during any of my photo sessions of the last few years! I tried to get a good picture of the butterfly with Sheila but he was a fast mover and I kept changing my settings to focus on her thinking the butterfly was gone. But I will show one of the pictures where the butterfly swooped in. How sweet that was. A special sign?

Sierra Family

I am so excited for this couple! For one, they are just the sweetest, so happily in love, and of course so excited for their bundles of joy to arrive. Yes, I said bundles. I haven’t had the opportunity to photograph newborn twins before but now the time has arrived: a boy and a girl are on their way. Jennifer and Johnny are such a gorgeous pair of parents-to-be who are so excited to welcome their babies into the world. Our maternity session kept getting rained out because I always schedule before sunset to catch those beautiful beams of light. The rain has been relentless lately and the skies have been cloudy and dark during what should be my magic hour. After watching a weather map last Sunday nearly all day, I decided that we should just go for it. Storm clouds were passing and there was a pocket of cloud-free sky coming our way. We went ahead and met at one of my favorite spots since I knew it wouldn’t be raining there. The sun was out for us only for a little while, but we came away with some really beautiful shots anyway! Sometimes the clouds are a welcome change in photography, they make for some very unique backgrounds!

Halverton Family

It is a joy to photograph a family that is so full of laughter and smiles! Despite the rainy day we had, this group truly made my job easy. Raindrops during our session did not bring down their mood at all. We all kept laughing, posing, even jumping, until they had to run off to their big family dinner that night. When a group of family members doesn’t get together often, it is very special to be the person who captures their vacation memories. Hope to see you all again in the near future for your next Orlando vacation!

Mandy & David

First, can I just say that Mandy has the most magical and bewitching eyes ever? Gorgeous! I swear they were the colors of the blue-green springs where we met for photos. So I can’t wait to take more beautiful portraits at her upcoming wedding this October. And David (her soon-to-be husband) looks a lot like one of my favorite actors, Edward Norton. Or actually, Edward Norton looks like him. Because David is an amazing guy who is up for anything at a photoshoot, even swimming around in water that could possibly have an alligator lurking around. And David’s not even acting. Take that, Edward!

Mandy and David are truly like peanut butter and jelly, or peas and carrots. They laugh with each other so comfortably and look at each with the most genuine smiles, as if their eyes are doing the talking. It was a joy to photograph them and I think we had a lot of fun. And we captured beautiful memories for a lifetime.
