The Schumaker family were all together this summer and had their extended family photos done! With a 2-hour session and one beautiful location, we were able to squeeze in all kinds of portraits and combinations of this tribe!
Our family has become good friends with this adorable family over the past couple years. Our kids love playing together, we’re in bible study together, and sit in the same pew at church. I was honored to be the one to capture their family photos this week!
I first photographed the Comingore family 5 years ago when little Zeke was a newborn! (the little guy in grey) I love seeing them grow year after year, now Zane being a teenager, and little Remi the new “baby” in the family. We had a sweaty but gorgeous evening together in Sarasota last week!
Miranda & Tom, You’ve created a beautiful little tribe!These beauties were perched on a tree as we started our session! I had to stop and take their photo too!
David & Maddie are too cute! Adorable to look at, so sweet to chat with, and so loving toward each other. It’s such a pleasure to be around that kind of relationship. And it shines through in their photos! It so fun to add a little “activity” (or two) into your photo session. This lemonade picnic and tandem bike ride are so classic and romantic!
Baby Cooper turns ONE this week!
He did awesome job digging into his birthday cake for some “Cake Smash” photos. What an adorable little guy! Those eyes are killing me!! And his parents Bob & Alyssa are so smitten for that little man!
I flew back to my hometown in April, and while I was there I got to visit a dear friend. A few years ago, her family moved out to the country, and she and her husband have really established a homestead out there; compete with a homeschool room, goats, chickens, bunnies, and amazing home design everywhere. Becca & Erik are so talented!
This shoot was a typical “Day in the Life” of Becca and her two children. Unfortunately, Erik couldn’t be in on the session because he was working. But the other three were amazing models!Follow Becca’s Homeschooling journey on Instagram: @mirthandquery
These mini sessions were fast and furious! Some kids were into it, some…not as much. Thus is the nature of children, unpredictable.
But what was so beautiful was every mother’s (or grandmother’s) response to seeing her photo gallery upon delivery. Fussy or goofy, cooperative or going banana’s, we just love our babies! And to see us with them in photographs tugs at our hearts in a strong way….
“I’m gonna die! We LOVE the photos. Thank you so much!”
“I just ❤️ LOVE the new photos! Thank you so much! You’re the best!”
“Oh. My! Love them ALL!!”
“You’re a magic worker. You somehow captured my love and his joy even with a fussy “need a nap” baby.”
“These are fantastic! Thanks you so much!! You’re a magician! I was there for that shoot! It was pure chaos, hahaha!”
Savannah turned 7 last month! And she was such a willing model for her “7-year-old” photo shoot! This girl is a performer and had lots of pose ideas for us to try out! Such as: Cartwheels, Splits, Jumping on the Trampoline, and the ‘ol hands-in-the-air gymnastics pose.
After those fun poses….(insert crying laughing emoji) we tried a few of my boring ideas. 😉 Love ya, Savannah!
Dad came home from work just in time to get in a shot!And we took a couple cousin shots for good measure!
Justine & her girls were the perfect models to demonstrate what a “Mommy & Me” mini session will be like. I’ll be shooting in my home with a cream backdrop for a simple, classic look where all of the focus is on the sweet interactions between a mother and her children. Edited galleries will be delivered before Mother’s Day.
Contact me to snag one of the time slots!
(Gift Certificates also available if you’d like to give this mini session as an early Mother’s Day gift to a mother in your life.)
My Mali Lu turns 4 this week, and we partied last weekend like real fine ladies!
We invited Mali’s best girl friends, and had make-overs, tea time, and a glamor shoot! These little princesses were all about it! It was so cute!!
I want to give a special thanks to Maddie of MBO+D for helping me design and pull off this party for my girl. If you want to check out her services, visit her website here.
The party decor was a combination of items we pulled from my house, and items Maddie brought. We also borrowed tea cups from Nana to make it super special and fine!!
