Family of 6
Last week, I met this beautiful family for a portrait session, we had a great time, and I’m going to have to get together with Kelli to get some parenting tips, her 4 children are the most well behave kids I have ever met. And so sweet too! It was a pleasure, thank you so much for contacting me.
This is Olivia,
And here she is with her big sister, Maya
The oldest, Noah, 10 years. He’s taking his maturing very seriously and showed me the beginning of facial hair…
And the little baby, sweet Christian
Marcus the very hands on dad,
Maya, full of life
And this is the happy reaction you get when you hear the ice cream truck rolling by…
I love this shot of mother/daughter,
Alisa, Anastasia and Lia
I recently photographed Alisa, but this time her godmothers came along, and we took advantage of Pensacola’s beautiful beach. Anastasia and Lia are sisters, both in college and were visiting for a short time. I had a great time with the 3 of them, Alisa is smitten with her gorgeous godmothers, and was very patient with us.
The girls are just striking. I love the contrast of their beautiful long dark hair, Olive skin and Alisa’s blond curls with her fair complexion.
Alisa didn’t care to get to close to the waves, but was very happy in her godmother’s arms.
So, we whipped up this neat little structure for the purpose of the shoot… not really, we just got lucky, found it there, and used it as a prop.
Anastasia and Lia didn’t take one single bad shot, they just have that natural beauty about them, and that very Mediterranean look, coming from their Greek roots.
This is Mac, so sweet. I know I say this about every baby I photograph, but they’re all so cute! It’s a treat for me to document such strong moments in a family’s life. Mac was really patient with us and played his part being a wonderful model for me.
As you can see here, he was relax.
It looks like he’s doing some sort of sign with his fingers, maybe telling me I get two more shots and then be gone?
I just had to take a picture on the bar.
We have a new baby around the block, little miss Charlotte. So precious… She was so content in her parent’s arms and had no trouble with all my “folding” poses.
She is such a darling baby, I love her expression when her parents are kissing her. Sorry, I wanted to post these before I went to bed but my brain is already in sleep mode, looking forward to a nice rest, and I’m having a hard time with text… I’ll just say this: Charlotte was a dream, very relax and so lovely, like her family and sweet big sister. Who, by the way is adapting very well to the new arrival. (Unlike my daughter Meg, who stayed in denial for a very long time, and just refused to acknowledge the existence of Olivia when talking about or drawing our family)
Michelle & André
I had so much fun taking these pictures. What a sweet couple and man, are they in love!
They were so easy to photograph, being so happy together, they have a permanent smile on their faces. They couldn’t stop laughing..
I did just take this picture a couple of weeks ago, and it’s all green here, but it’s also getting hot in Florida and I can’t help wishing for the gentle fall breeze, so I modified this picture to a fall foliage.
When Michelle looks at her fiance, her eyes sparkle, she radiates joy.
They told me how Andre proposed, he had a friend of Michelle help him set up his plan: she called Michelle to meet her at her family’s restaurant where Andre walked in (in the full of people restaurant), with a boom box on his shoulder playing their song, some roses and an engagement ring, and proposed in front of the crowd…
I asked Michelle to whisper something in Andre’s ear. At first he had a gentle expression, then his smile expanded, and he declared it may be time for them to go home…
My favorite, I think it’s both of their expression, and the soft focus that gives energy and movement to the image.
