Ft Lauderdale Lifestyle Family Photographer | S Family Vacation Photo Session

This mama was one of my High School friends, who’s left The Sunshine State and resides in The Empire State. I had the pleasure of photographing her family when they were in Florida for the Spring holidays 3 years ago, and when she said they wanted to work together to capture their family’s growth, I was so excited! I love how photography allows me to stay connected to people from my past, and also, it’s always a privilege to document the same families as they evolve.

Mom sounded concerned with what to wear for their family photo session, so I suggested she send me a photo of what she had in mind. She was off to a strong start, and I replied with some suggested links and photos from Old Navy and Children’s Place to complete their look. I’m always happy to help my families style for their sessions, but I definitely try to make it easily accessible and convenient.

Next up was deciding where. Since we were photographing a morning session, it had to be somewhere with shade, so that ruled out the beach. I’m typically able to find shade in urban locations, so we met in downtown Ft Lauderdale to enjoy the morning, and their enjoyment is evident in these images!

So if you’re not local, next time you’re in the area, message me to schedule your Ft Lauderdale vacation photo session!

I've known this family for a really long time.  This dad's mom and my mom have been very close friends since college!  So it's been fun to get to know him as an adult, along with his wife Maya and their beautiful girls.  One of the main ingredients in a session with me is fun, and this family definitely packed in the fun!  The girls were high energy, enthusiastic, and creative, which gave me so many 'so you' moments that were so full of life, and that really capture the spirit of their family.

It's so amazing to get to freeze time for families as they grow.  I've been photographing these guys since before baby was born, and now she's 2!  She's walking and talking, and her big brother and sister adore her so, and she adores them right back!  Mom and dad are smitten with these kiddos too, and they're pretty chill as a family and in front of the camera, which means lots of 'so you' moments for me to capture!

Cameryn and Carly B'Not Mitzvah Pre-Shoot

I'm so excited to be capturing these girls' B'not Mitzvah next month!  As is often customary, we met for a Pre-Shoot in Downtown Ft Lauderdale to capture some informal images of these girls before their big day.  A Pre-Shoot portrait session is a great way to get some nice images to use as a sign-in book for guests to record congratulatory messages, or to use for decor around the room at the reception.  It's also a great way to develop a rapport with your photographer prior to the event.

We met at one of my favorite urban locations, and Carly and Cameryn brought their camera-ready faces.  We had a blast creating beautiful images together.
