This mama and I went to High School together, and haven't seen each other since! But thanks to Facebook, she knows I'm doing photography in South Florida, so when her family came to visit from NJ for the Spring, we both agreed doing an outdoor session in the Florida sunshine would be lovelier than an indoor winter session at home up North! I'm so glad I got to capture this family in some lovely evening light. Mom and dad have certainly got their hands full with three boys, but they handle it with grace, sarcasm, and humor - a totally winning combination in my parenting book! It was an honor to freeze some of these moments in time for them.
I had the pleasure of photographing this family for almost big brother Solomon's first birthday almost a year ago. They're getting ready to welcome a new little one into their family, so we met up to capture this beautiful family and mama's beautiful belly! Knowing they have an active boy who loves to play, mom and I strategized beforehand, and she brought along a few of Solomon's favorite toys, that would photograph well. The firetruck almost matches her dress, which is absolutely amazing! I just love the bright colors! Congratulations to this family, and I can't wait to meet your new baby!
This is a very special family to photograph, and I have shared many milestones with them, from Rachael’s pregnancy with Stella, to her as a newborn, at 6 months, and celebrating her first birthday. They are always full of smiles and look great in front of the camera. Rachael is an absolutely glowing pregnant mama, Jonathan is a proud father, and Stella is an absolute doll as she is about to celebrate her second birthday. I look forward to seeing these parents welcome a new baby into their family and to Stella becoming a big sister!
