In studio Holiday Session | Christmas Session | Milk and Cookies Holiday Photos | Orlando Holiday Family Photographer | PJ Pajama Mini Holiday Session
Christmas is only 15 days away and we absolutely can't wait to see Santa! We have chocolate chip cookies and milk jugs ready for Santa! This session was taken here in our studio and Sydney picked out these lovely pajamas from The GAP along with the fuzzy brown warm slippers. Having Kai and Kali in the studio was so much fun, they were full of love, fun and laughter. Seeing the way these two siblings interact with one another overwhelms my heart with so much joy. It makes me think about having a sibling for my little guy!
Holiday Sessions are usually held outdoors, weather permitting. This was taken in the studio. The rustic wood wall was installed by a wonderful carpenter on a weekday at midnight. And it was well worth it! I love the rustic feel of the wall and the versatile looks it provides.
The holidays are near with family fun and cheer! We are just a week away from Thanksgiving and 1 month away from Christmas. With the busy holiday season just around the corner, we have a mental checklist to send out Holiday Cards. And the thought of having family photos on the cards comes to mind! What to wear, where to get the photos taken are thoughts that cross your mind. Then contacting your local photographer to find out they are booked with Weddings, Events and Holiday Minis!
Yes, November and December are the busiest months for photographers. We've had families contact us for the most festive holiday portraits and other families contact us for some great modern portraits that can double as a year round family portrait and also be used in Christmas cards.
This year we had some Outdoor Family Mini Sessions at Santa's Christmas Tree Farm in Eustis, FL. The Madorin's elected to wear vibrant primary colors red and blue with a hint of cream.
Quinceañera Photo Session | Orlando Quince Photographer | Quince Photo ideas | Kraft Azalea Garden Photo Session
A lot of times when I'm photographing a Quince session, bystanders are in awe of the gorgeous dress. And if its a young girl, she thinks its a Disney princess! A Quinceanera is the celebration of a girls 15th Birthday, highlighting and marking the transformation to a Woman.
These portrait sessions are becoming more common and the extravagant reception dinners are now substituted for a family vacation or a new vehicle for the birthday girl.
Janel's mom contacted me months before the session to collaborate on a Quinceanera theme. I found out Janel had the rode horses for a few years and had a strong affinity towards these majestic animals. This gave me an idea! What about a horse photo session? She also wanted to have portraits with lots of greenery and what better place than Kraft Azalea Garden. Janel's dress was customized by Minerva's Bridal, they did an amazing job with the bodice of the dress. It was adorned with gems and sparkled at every angle she turned. I recommended having pictures taken in a casual and then the gown because a horse can be very unpredictable in photos.
In the midst of my daily routine, my sister contacts me and asks me to visit her in Colorado Springs. I thought to myself, wow, I've always wanted to see the mountains and what better reason than to secretly get away with a valid reason! To Colorado Springs within 2 days! I absolutely could not wait for the trip. I purchased a coat with a lining and packed with just a carry on. Half of my suitcase was for my camera equipment.
In Colorado the mountains are an orange clay color. Garden of the Gods is a National Natural Landmark. I've always had a dream of taking photos with a mountain backdrop. And lucky me, we had a family portrait session at Garden of the Gods.
The Stewarts are just a lovely couple and their children were just full of energy and excited for the photos!

For a bride thats looking for glam, The Garden House can entertain up to 250 guests, includes a bar area, marble floors, and a gorgeous crystal chandelier. Stepping outside you'll be under an open air terrace, with a tranquil fountain for your viewing pleasure.
The wedding vows can take place outdoors under the "I DO" tree, Joshua Tree, or the Large Oak Tree. Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend a vendor event at Stonebridge and connected with many great individuals who all come together to make a wedding day memorable and special. Below are some images captured from this gorgeous venue.
Maternity Session | Outdoor Maternity Photographer | Moss Park Photographer | Lake Nona Photographer | Maternity Photographer
As a photographer in Lake Nona, you must know all the awesome locations for portraits. Taking into consideration the time of the photo session and also the location, Moss Park was perfect! This city park location was ideal with its abundance of pine trees and oak trees that make the perfect lush green backdrop for a photo session. Other than the greenery, deer and sand cranes are often spotted during the day and can also be a great addition to any portrait session. Also, did I mention they have a campground, hiking trails, and water activities as well! With a car packed full of photography equipment and maternity session props, it was time to capture some amazing connections. I did wish I could have my dog tag along with my photo sessions, but of course it’s not always ideal.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our blog! We love sharing with you our experiences and we hope you're able to enjoy a glimpse of their special day as well!
