ERIN || FLORIDA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER

Mmmkay y’all…..Can I just say for the millionth time how much I love shooting seniors?!

This stage of life is defined by: Adventure, spontaneity, fun, creativity, making memories, fun, freedom, excitement, dreaming, & wait did I mention FUN? All of these things encompass every element I seek to capture through photos…so with senior shoots it’s like killing 10 birds with one stone! Anyhow with all that said, Meet Erin:

Erin is all the above bundled up into one girl. Oh & then add passion, spunk, confidence, & a heart for the Lord on top. We spent the morning running around her yard (let me note, her yard was more than just a yard…it was like a rainforest…i die.) with her mom (one last side note, her mom was totally all of the above as well, the sure apple doesn’t fall far!) laughing, story telling, being creative, all while snapping away. Basically my ideal way to spend any morning. Enjoy the outcome!

NORAH’S BIG ADVENTURE || WASHINGTON DC FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Meet Norah & her amazing parents, Erin & Chris.

First, Ill introduce you to Norah:

I first photographed this darling family almost exactly 1 year ago when Norah was only 6 months old & she was by far the smiliest 6 month old I’ve ever shot… Then again when she turned 1 & just as before, Norah giggle & laughed as she would hold herself up on anything within grabbing distance, while trying so hard to walk & then plopping straight down on her toosh. Which would naturally result in more giggles… & Now just a couple weeks ago I was blessed to photograph her again! This precious girl is 1 & a half & running WILD. Its such a sweet sweet thing as a photographer to be able to watch kiddos grow up &  BOY has this one grown up fast! I call this session “Norah’s Big Adventure” because she lead us all around the streets of Georgetown. From brick alleyways to strangers stoops – Norah Lead the way [with tons of excitement & playfulness may I add!].

Next, Her parents Erin & Chris:

Y’all I love these two. Im not kidding, it was love at first shoot. The first thing that stood out to me on our very first meeting was the way they styled themselves [I studied fashion design, I can't help but love it!]. Tons of color, mix matching prints, its basically a photographers dream. But it wasn’t just that first time, again & again they continue to come all dress & perfectly coordinated like they should be in a magazine! [Side note: I know "what to wear" is one of the hardest things to figure out for photo shoots & especially when you have more than 1 to coordinate! So this time around I asked Erin "How the HECK do you do it?!" & She gave me some AWESOME practical tips - when I get around to It ill definitely put up a blog post with what I learned to help everyone else out there like me who gets majorly bogged down by this intimidating task!]

The second thing that stood out to me about this couple came at the end of our first shoot & has been confirmed every time we’ve met since then: They know their daughter is a child, aka: unpredictable. So they just want to have fun & take some pictures while doing it! SO REFRESHING. I often leave family shoots, especially with babies or toddlers, crossing my fingers & praying to the good Lord that I got at least a couple shots where everyones looking directly at the camera & smiling……………….thats not a good feeling. Parents like Erin & Chris remind me of why I am a LIFESTYLE photographer – not a “Portrait Photographer.” Because babies aren’t always smiling & toddlers don’t always want to listen to you say “look at the camera, CHEESE!” for an hour straight. They want to PLAY! Thats real LIFE. Thats right where their in that stage & those giggles, & goofy faces, & even sometimes tears…that playful, pure, uninhibited spirit each little one so beautifully possess…Y’all THATS what I want my pictures to capture. After all, isn’t that what we miss most about being lil kids?! Erin & Chris – thanks so much for  continually reminding me of this every time we meet.

With alllllll that to say: Enjoy Norah’s Big Adventure!

MADELINE & CHRIS || WASHINGTON DC ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Meet Madeline & Chris – a couple I so badly wish my husband & I knew while we were living in DC. We pranced around DC shooting on who even know’s front porches, breaking park rules, dodging guards, all for the sake of the shot. Y’all this is something i’ll admit i’m a lil chicken about usually but these two brought out the adventurer in me! We ended our session inside the Capitol Building where yes, I had a permit to take photos :-] I felt more legit than ever passing through security with my photog badge! By far one of the most exciting sessions of my career thus far – Enjoy their lovely photos!

CHRISTINE & RODRIGO || MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Christine & Rodrigo’s wedding fell at the end of what was the busiest weekend of my career thus far, & let me tell you they put a whole new meaning to the phrase “going out with a bang” for me! The venue, Swan Harbor Farm, was GORGEOUS – the couple was GORGEOUS, the tables, the flowers, the dress, the dance party….GOODNESS! But the thing that stuck out the most to me  was how from the minute I pulled up to the minute I left – I felt like family. & way beyond details & fun times, that speaks volumes to me – How do I get the best clients ever?! I am so blessed. Christine, Rodrigo, & all of your precious friends & family – I hope you enjoy reliving this special day as much as I enjoyed getting to be apart of it!

BRYAN & MAXIE || NEW SMYRNA BEACH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

It was love at first phone date with this bride. One of those where you hang up feeling like you just made a new best friend…..You know what I mean right?! Let’s just say I was preeeetty excited for this wedding & it was every bit of what I expected it to be: tons of laughter, a few happy tears, & one wild dance party! Not just the reception either….not with this wedding party…there was spontaneous dancing goin’ on ALL DAY. I know. AMAZING. But not only that…just to top it off, Maxie pulled me aside before the reception began & let me in on a lil secret:

Her & her dad choreographed a dance to Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics for their first dance & no one, not even her groom Bryan KNEW ABOUT IT. I died. So excuse the large amount of father daughter dance photos…I just couldn’t help it, it was my favorite moment of any wedding EVER.

I could go on & on but I think they’re more than enough pictures to tell the story much much better :-] – Enjoy Y’all!
