Meet sweet little Caroline! Tara and Austin, along with big brother Bradley, welcomed their precious daughter this summer. I had the privilege of documenting this beautiful family at the end of July and it was the sweetest session! Mama Tara just exudes beauty and grace. We taught at the same school together a few years ago. She is such a wonderful and creative teacher and it was so much fun to watch her be mama in her home with her toddler and new baby girl. So excited for them! Enjoy these photos from Caroline’s newborn session.
This precious little lady is Alena, the newest addition to the Geers family. Andrew and Alisa welcomed their first child in late June and are so in love. Andrew and Alisa are currently serving as medical missionaries in Honduras and spent the summer in Orlando with Alisa’s parents as they awaited the arrival of their sweet baby. They spent Alena’s first few months learning how to navigate life as a family of three before they headed back to Central America. I am so impressed by this sweet family. They have hearts of gold and are doing big, beautiful things. You can follow along on their family’s journey on their blog. It was such a treat to photograph their family (including both sets of Alena’s grandparents!) when they were home in Orlando. Enjoy Alena’s newborn session!
Welcome to the world, beautiful Josephine Madeline! I have known Julie since the beginning of high school and it has been so SO fun to watch her fall in love, get married, and now become a mama to Josie Lynn! Julie and Chandler are now parents to a precious little lady. I had an awesome solo adventure day in July and flew to Raleigh, NC to see and photograph this new family of three. So thankful for the opportunity to capture such sweet memories for my friends!! Julie and Chandler, I love your family and am so excited to watch Josie Lynn grow up. Can’t wait to see you guys again soon!!
I loved photographing Catrina and Paul’s maternity session at Philippe Park a few weeks ago and now baby JD is here! Ellie is the sweetest big sister and I know she’s going to take great care of her little brother! JD was a model baby during his newborn session. We got so many great photos!
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!!
