It’s so rare for me to be on the other side of the lens. At best, once a year, around Christmas, I manage to get everyone committed to a family session. Like everyone else, I start by agonizing a little about where, when can we make the time with our ever busy schedules, what to wear.. (sounds familiar?), but quickly get my senses back and remember to just get it done! And I’m sooooo thankful to have occasionally a few pictures of my very favorite people in the world with me. To have forever some of Olivia with that giant tooth gap in her mouth, Will hugging his sisters, Henry giving me a huge unexpected smooch that nearly had me on the ground, happy Magalie and laid back Coco. I’m enjoying my children at this stage in their life so much, and these pictures are locking in a time capsule these moments, our connection these days. I am very grateful to Rae, famous Pensacola wedding photographer, to have captured these for us.

Don’t be fooled, Olivia doesn’t know how to use a broom. Truly, her biggest hope is that one day, she will join the world of magic and learn how to ride a broom witches’ style, for real!
