Class of 2015 Senior Photography

Starting the school year off right with Lindsey, class of 2015! Just a couple of weeks ago we were out at Maclay Gardens battling the heat while maintaining fabulousness (which spell check is telling me is not a word, but I am choosing to ignore). Here’s her sneak peek!

It takes a little time for K to warm up, but I suspect it’s because she’s just sizing me up. I love her quiet enthusiasm. She holds her cards tight to her chest, and I respect that. Happy birthday to this sweet, pensive little girl. One day maybe she’ll tell me what she’s thinking.

These cuties were in the studio recently celebrating their first birthday! It’s funny how different twins can be. One goes all in. The other says, “Wait you want me to eat with my hands? Ew!” To each their own! This is going to be a fun pair to watch grow up!

I finally got to meet the G twins! They spent a little extra time at the hospital so we weren’t able to get them right at that brand new moment, but look how sweet and alert they both were when we did get them in the studio! They kept pumping their fists, so I can only assume they had a good time. Sneak peek below!

Tallahassee Family Photography

You may remember my friends Tyson and Ashlee from their gorgeous maternity shoot last year. Well, I finally got to meet Baby P! We had our shoot planned for months. They came into town and we headed out to Maclay Gardens. What we didn’t count on was it being 95 degrees! This was the hottest summer shoot I’ve had to date. P was a trooper, but in the end he let us know that he was ready to go! We headed back to his grandparents’ house to rehydrate and snack. We finished up our shoot in their backyard just before the bottom fell out and it started pouring. I guess that’s the thing about Florida. It’s going to get HOT but Mother Nature always finds a way to cool us back off. Side note, Mother Nature also doesn’t really care about photo shoots. At least there were no alligators!

Even though our shoot time was brief, I love these images we got. Here’s just a small handful of what ended up being a beautiful set of images. Looking forward to watching this little guy grow!

I’m really loving shooting in the new studio and Baby M was one of the sweetest sleeping babies I have had in there to date! Just look at all those rolls! Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning and light!
