Beautiful...part 1 of 3...

this was a busy day...3 super beautiful sets of kids that are all sweet as can be! Loved getting to photograph for this family - the kids were awesome and loved some of the images we got that the kids set up!

this one's for you guys! love how it turned out!

elegance and grace ...beatifulness part 2 of 3!

I love this family! Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but truly sweet. The kids have to be the most polite and well-behaved kids with a happiness that radiates. I really feel blessed to get to capture such special moments and times for this family and love when I get to be around them. (and to further prove my point from the post to follow, they are friends with the beautiful girls in the next post)

stunning... breathtaking...

this was the sweetest surprise! I arrived to the session ready to meet someone I only had met on the phone (very nice and I was really looking forward to the session) It was the absolute most wonderful surprise to discover I had met this beautiful set of girls and mom many times before at events that I've photographed for (seriously one of the other nicest families to grace Miami!!) I guess going to prove the saying that birds of a feather... because not only are they stunningly beautiful as you'll see, but truly gracious and sweet and elegant. (think Audrey Hepburn/Grace Kelly)

dreamy little muffins ...what fun!

they thought I was kidding when I said I was only leaving because it was getting dark and I had to feed my own kiddos...I could have stayed and played forever!! These two little muffins were absolutely adorable and I had such a blast with them! These are the kids that make you giggle when they laugh. I just love it when sessions are fun and relaxed and the family just seems to be so willing to let us create these sweet moments! Thanks, H Family - truly I could have stayed forever!

seriously ... just such a sweet little princess!!

Thankful ...so many blessings in my life

I am most grateful for all the amazing people that pass through my life - whether they stay for awhile and become dear friends or just pass through and leave a little touch of sweetness that has enriched my life... I am thankful for them all. I do gush often - it's true - but I'm sincerely so amazed and grateful for getting to meet so many incredible families, couples, people - and then getting to do what I truly love in capturing moments and times in our lives that would otherwise pass and be forgotten. I am blessed.

Thank you - and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

this is a blog marathon the next few days and starting here! LOVED this family! What an absolute blast they were! I always feel so comfortable with these families of six - feels a little like home and love the energy that is created with this size of family. These kids were just as nice as could be - sweet,sweet!

thankful, part two of three!!

stay a little while and get lost in the amazing blue eyes and most beautiful, sweet family! this was so much fun - and really could have stayed all afternoon playing with L's oldest son -- he was so engaging and sweet and felt like I was hanging out with a mini-adult.

thankful still

this is the third holiday season I have gotten to see this beautiful family and I can't believe how big the girls are getting! Their oldest daughter is changing into a little girl and the baby/toddler part of her face is almost gone:) a little bittersweet!

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone! I am definitely most grateful for these amazing families I get to know! thank you for the privilege of getting to know and photograph your families!

natural beauty and the girlie girls

A truly is a natural beauty ... inside and out! She has that completely calm spirit that makes you walk a little slower, talk a little softer, and feel a little more at peace when you are with her. This was to be a maternity session - and we got some beautiful images - but who knew her girls would have so much fun dressing up and trying on all the hair clips and bows and feathers I brought with me! LOVED this afternoon session.... thank you A and family! So excited for the little one to arrive!

this image so captures their family... just kind of hanging out together...together but a little independent ... love this one!

two more that I love...

in the last moments of light we captured these most beautiful images...

unbelievably easy... thanks L Family!

I can't even begin to say how much fun I had with this family and how easy they were! Narrowing it down to blog just a few was ridiculous - there are way too many incredible images! We really had a blast and the kids were so willing to play and run and JUMP!! LOVED this session!

truly, I must have said "ok - got it!" 3 times before these two pulled away from each other!! must be love!

I'm in love with these two - they always just seem so happy! You know those people that when you see them - they just make you want to almost giggle? This little guy is like that - he always has that smile like he just heard the funniest joke and he's about to let you in on it! His eyes twinkle and he radiates happiness! well, the two of them sitting there so cute - but I wanted them to be connected, so I said "c'mon, hug each other! wrap your arms around yourselves!" so he did EXACTLY what I said!!! I was laughing so hard, a couple of my images were complete blur - so here's the story of his sister explaining what he was SUPPOSE to do!! lol! (did I say I loved this session??)

Hannah Never Looked This Good!

The oldest daughter in this beautiful family is a huge Hannah Montana fan - lucky for me! Once we discovered the key to her smile and laugh was pretending to be Hannah - we were golden!! These two girls are ridiculously beautiful and I loved getting to spend time with this family.

these are two of my absolute favorites - LOVED the light we were getting! And there's nothing better than getting to see the world from dad's shoulders!
