"It was only right to capture these sweet moments, in the exact place I had my first maternity shoot with Colin. Being in that park took my mind back to the days when I dreamed about being his mother and holding him in my arms. I had no idea how motherhood would change my life for the better."
We met up with Abby and Austin at a local park just hours before sunset. It was such a gorgeous evening! Abby, a talented florist, had clearly put a lot of thought into the aesthetic of their photos – from carefully selecting locations of significance to incorporating meaningful “props” (i.e., a gorgeous bouquet and their adorable puppies) – she had a plan and we were ready to roll with it!
When my dear friend Debbie expressed interest in some “mommy and me” photos, we knew that the only place fitting for this sweet session was the shimmering shoreline. Shot on a mix of digital and real Fuji 400h film, we met up just after sunrise so we could bask in the light and beauty of the beach!
It was a muggy Saturday morning in July when my husband and I met up with the Brown’s at breathtaking Philippe Park. This would be our last opportunity to capture this family before embarking on a cross-country move, so despite the elements, we knew we had to make it work. The grass was wet with dew, the air was thick, and the temperature outside was already scorching – quite typical of Florida summers - but Michelle and her husband Adam were determined to get some updated family portraits!
