Do you have a longtime friend that you may not see for a year or two but then when you do, it’s like no time has passed? Kara is that person for me. We first met in high school when I was 13. She has the kindest, most encouraging, gentle heart with a side of sass and humor. We spent our high school years (only 3, since she’s one year older than me!) laughing, creating yearbooks, having sleepovers, going to youth group, and making so many memories together. Kara moved to Fort Myers after high school graduation for college and later met her future husband, John. They now live in beautiful, sunny Fort Myers with their handsome little man JJ and their newest addition, Emmett. Two beautiful boys under two! Kara is supermama! I wish we lived closer so that our boys could play together more but it was such a treat to go on a little road trip last month so that I could photograph this sweet family. Congratulations, Kara and John, your family is perfect and we are so excited for you!!
I am so glad that Megan reached out for some Mommy & Me photos with her sweet daughter Sophie, who just turned one! As a mom, Megan knew it was rare for her to actually be IN the photos. She took action, contacted me and said “I want to be in the photos with my daughter!” YES! We got together at Armature Works and had so much fun! Sophie is the sweetest little lady. It was so much fun documenting this sweet duo!
Sweet little Remy turned ONE last month and we celebrated her birthday with some portraits at home. Remy and big brother Royce are such a fun pair together. They were making each other smile and laugh during the entire session! It’s so much fun to document families as they grow. I first met Jessica and Mike for their engagement session in 2014 and then Royce’s newborn photos in 2016, his first birthday photos, then Remy’s newborn photos in 2018 and now her one year session! Love this family!
This sweet family is welcoming a baby boy in a few weeks! Catrina, Paul and big sister Ellie, can’t wait to meet their newest little family member, JD! We met up at Philippe Park for their maternity session and they did so great!! Ellie was so well-behaved and did great in front of the camera. Catrina is a glowing, beautiful mama and Paul is a proud Dad! Check the blog in July for newborn photos of JD after he makes his arrival! Can’t wait!
Kara and Nick got married on Sunday at the coolest venue ever – the Orlando Science Center! They held their ceremony in the Our Planet room with a huge globe as their backdrop. After they said “I Do”, we went outside on the Suntrust Terrace for portraits and then headed inside to the Dino Digs room for the reception. Dinosaurs everywhere! Kara and Nick chose their venue specifically for the dinosaurs. Such a unique and fun space! Puff N Stuff catering provided a delicious dinner and Tropix got the party started with their live music and salsa dancing. It was a great evening! Congratulations, Kara and Nick!
