Koreshan State Park Family Christmas Session

bpp_RinglerChristmas_2017_-17.jpg

One of my favorite aspects of this awesome job is being a part of my clients lives.  I get to capture the different chapters in their story. I was there to capture the details as Rich and Susan (Finally!) said I do.   But, this year I got to illustrate the next chapter for them.  Their first Christmas photos as a family of 3!

Meet little Brooklyn.  I'm pretty sure she's going to steal your heart as easily as she stole mine.   Hands down, one of the happiest babies I have ever been around.

The role of "parent"  looks fantastic on these two.  I'm going to go out on a limb here... but I think Rich is pretty smitten with the newest leading lady in his life.

So we spent a sun drenched evening at Koreshan State Park, taking in the sights, the sounds, and the smiles all around.

A big Thank You to Rich and Suzy for continuing to have me there to illustrate your story!  I'm in anticipation for the next chapter!

Barefoot Beach Florida Family Session

Fall becomes this whirlwind time of year.  But, I have the opportunity to meet some amazing families.  The Kroll's were one of the awesome families who trusted me with their holiday memories this year.   The joy of family and being together is encompassed brilliantly with this family and their Barefoot Beach session. Barefoot beach is one of my favorite locations this time of year.  It is a bit less traveled, the beach itself is wide, and the sunsets captured are breathtaking.  Barefoot beach is one of those locations that is quintessential south Florida.

This group was so energetic and enjoyed being together with one another.  They truly just wanted to have how much they love one another captured.  From Mom and Dad, Oma and Opa, to the sister in law you can't distinguish from the other sisters.  The closeness shared by this family is nearly enviable.  My siblings and I and our spouses aren't nearly as close as this.

It was such a pleasure to be there to capture these moments for their sweet family.   These are the sessions where I feel the full joy of my chosen profession.

Hilton Marco Island Family Photographer

Today proved yet again why I love this job.   At 10am, I was contacted by a super sweet husband looking to surprise his wife.   With their beach vacation almost over, he knew that his wife really wanted to have family images taken.  So, he and his three girls were on a mission to give mom the session she so desired. Now, for the past 2 days, our area has been having some spectacular lightning storms.  The rain has been intense but the electrical has been truly noteworthy.

We scheduled for 7:30 pm, in the hopes that we would miss the storm.  I drove in rain from Bonita Springs where I live to the Hilton on Marco Island.  To say I was praying is an understatement.  Once I arrived at the resort, it was a miracle.  The storm ceased and we were left with a stunning light to make the family images for mom that much more spectacular.

To have put the session together last-minute, everyone did a fantastic job of coordinating and Mom seemed to be thrilled with Dad, and the girls' surprise.

The beach behind the Hilton Marco Island Resort is wide and gorgeous, and the views are stunning.  It was wonderful to spend a few moments in laughter with this sweet family!  And their girls - my goodness! They are stunning! But, I have to brag on Mom and Dad, because not only are the beautiful, but they were sweet, well-mannered and had the most beautiful of spirits.  Their parents are doing a fantastic job!

So Thank You Keswani Family for allowing me to capture you vacation memories on Marco Island this year!

A Day in the Life of Abigail, Lifestyle Newborn Photography

  It is around 9am. The Florida sunshine outside is promising a beautiful day. Here in the nursery, amidst the mermaids, we're experiencing "Hurricane Abby". Our catalyst - Dad blew a raspberry.  All in giggles and good fun, every thing is captured. Even that crocodile tear Abigail is working so hard for.   As mom scoops her up, things calm, well until dad attempts another raspberry war.

This new family of 3 is very special to me.  Dad, Ernie, is my husband Doug's cousin.   I have been waiting patiently for an opportunity away from work on the weekend so that I could finally meet their new baby girl, Abigail.  As Doug and I sat and chatted with Ernie and Nina, I found myself reminiscing in their stories.  Four months new to the parent journey, they feel those early struggles some of us tend to forget.  The sleepless nights,  the schedule or inability to keep a schedule, and STUFF! Babies are so small, but their things are everywhere.

Those first few months are so fleeting.  Everything is new.  Everyone is adjusting.  Babies grow and change so quickly, we don't realize as parents, we are growing and changing too.   For most, we don't think about the things we do everyday as beautiful.  When planning for a portrait session, we are choosing a special outfit, picking a location, etc.   But, your everyday - the in between not often seen - it is BEAUTIFUL.

I enjoyed the visit with family, it is always wonderful to spend time with Ernie and Nina.  Abigail is beyond precious.  I'm glad they let me be a fly on the wall for the day, to not only capture the portraits they were ready for, but to let me snag a piece of their day just being new parents with a new baby... crocodile tear and all.
