Do you follow @busytoddler on Instagram? The sweet mama behind that account has started a movement called #proofofmom with the whole purpose of getting moms in front of the camera! It doesn’t matter if you’re in a fancy outfit with makeup on or in workout clothes and three day old hair. The goal is to capture moments and memories with your kids. I love it. For Mother’s Day, I did a Mommy & Me photo session giveaway on Instagram to help further the proof of mom movement. I had so many wonderful women enter the contest and I was so excited when Kate, my new friend from our local children’s gym, won! She has an adorable son named Jude that’s just a little younger than my James. I joined Kate and Jude at their house for a lifestyle family session. These two played with blocks, cars, toys, and read books in the rocking chair. We did all of Jude’s favorite things in his room and we created such sweet memories! We got proof of mom!! I loved this session and hope to do many more just like it in the future!!
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!
Meet the Taylor kids! These four teenagers are part of the sweetest family. Their Mom is a wonderful Kindergarten teacher and their Dad is the pastor at Westtown Church. David and I have been attending Westtown for a few years and we love it. God is definitely at work there! Westtown is located near Westchase on Race Track Road. If you ever want to visit, you can sit with us!
Meet the Brandt family! I first met Stephanie (the pretty lady on the left) in 2013 when David and I moved to Tampa. They were co-workers and quick friends. I got to photograph Stephanie and Jake’s engagement session in NYC in 2014! It was pretty epic and forever one of my favorites. We also had the opportunity to travel around Europe with Steph when we were living in Italy and she was in London for work. One of my favorite trips was to Ireland! We got together with Steph and her family after Christmas in Orlando. It was a great session at Lake Eola!
