I love my annual check in with this family... And considering Jordan (who is now 5) has been taking part in these photo sessions since he was just 13 months old, he definitely knows the drill (he even directed the 2nd photo in this gallery - wanting to pose in the background of his sister). We met at North Beach Park in Hollywood this year, which gave us great places to "explore" (& play find-the-grills) before ending up on the beach. There was no doubt Jordan was going to be first in the water - It gave our family photo session a trash-the-dress-esque edge. Ha. Had a great time as always - love watching these two grow up!
When its my first time meeting (& photographing) a family, I always do my best to explain my creative process a bit in the beginning. It starts simple... "just be yourself", "engage with each other", "pretend I'm not here"... but after this past Sunday, I think Melissa & Josh might tell you it sounds much easier than it actually is. I'm sure when they arrived at Colee Hammock Park Photo Sessions in Fort Lauderdale for family photos, they were probably not expecting to get a full workout complete with running, lifting, throwing, etc. But good news... I don't charge extra for the unexpected calorie burn! ;) I had such a blast with these girls, covering every inch of the waterfront park... pulling those natural smiles out from behind those shy, hiding faces I first met. It was great to meet you all - I hope you enjoy the photos... full gallery coming soon!
Can you believe its that time of year again? The holidays will be here before you know it, so take advantage of this fun, low-hassle way for you to get your updated family photos – without having to do any real planning at all. This year, I only have one mini-session date & it will take place at a brand new beach location in north Fort Lauderdale. For only $100, you get a 20-25 minute family session for up to 5 people, a password-protected online gallery of all finished images and 3 of your favorite images delivered as digital files for easy printing. You'll also have the option to purchase a disk of all digital files after the session if its too hard to choose.Space is extremely limited, so make sure to email me at email@example.com to reserve your spot now!
My photography-love-affair started with this amazing family a few years ago, when little Avery was first born. Over the last 3 years, I've had the privilege to not only see her grow up into a beautiful little girl, but also have the same opportunity to capture her little brother, Jackson, since his newborn session a year ago. Last time we got together, we were joined by 8 of their other close family members, spanning 3 generations with a big pre-holiday group session on Hollywood Beach. But being that this was their last session in their (second) baby's first year package, this one was all about Jackson and his first birthday. We started the session at Tree Tops Park for some fun with their wagon, but couldn't resist continuing it in their backyard for some fun cake smash & clean-up photos! Always a blast hanging with this fam - thanks for letting me continue to create lasting memories for your family!
