I met this beautiful, recently-turned family of 4 for a quick mini session in Davie, at Bamford Sports Complex - right down the road from where I grew up. Now although the entire sports complex of endless baseball & soccer fields didn't exist when I was a kid, we found ourselves in a nice shady spot in front of the original (& unchanged) community center, where I remember taking dance classes & swimming lessons many moons ago. There is something refreshing about finding myself shooting photos for local families in the very area where I was raised. Pine Island Park was very welcoming & quiet - a nice change from the overcrowded parks I've been shooting at, where there is a photography session every 100ft. I don't know how I've gotten so lucky with so many adorable kids to photograph, but they sure make my job easy!

It was little Elena's 5 month birthday and since the whole family was in town for Spring Break, it was a perfect time to do a quick mini-session for these three! We found some perfect shade under the trees of Forest Ridge in Davie to try to slow down time a bit and get some great photos during baby's first year. It had been about 3 months since I saw Elena last and she sure is growing up fast! I'm sure there will be lots of these little sessions throughout her life, so remember this face!A special thanks to my recruited photo assistant of the day, Melissa, who wiggled finger puppets over my head shot after shot.
