Our Day in Disney: Fleming Family {Disney Orlando Photographer}

As most of you know I recently expanded my business into Central Florida which means I now to get to capture families at the happiest place on earth…DISNEY! Disney makes the perfect back drop to capture some great family memories. Here is just a little snap shot of the Fleming family’s day in The Magic Kingdom.

I met Angela a while back at a photography workshop in Miami and we have been following each others work ever since. She is an amazing wedding photographer based out of Texas. You can check out here work at New Seasons Photography. It’s always a great honor to have another photographer in front of your lens. She has an adorable little guy who is full of personality. Most photographers kids are camera shy but not Blayne, he is a total ham. He told me what to take photos of and even where he wanted to pose, it was hilarious! And if he wasn’t cute enough the Flemings are expecting and Angela is one of the cutest pregnant people I’ve ever seen. To add the cherry on top they had grandparents in toe and they were a total riot as well. This family’s over all fun loving spirit totally made up for the fact that it was a very gloomy rainy south Florida day.   This poor family… it literally rained everyday of their Disney vacation but they just went with it and didn’t let it stop them from having fun.

Styled Shoot in Ocala National Forest {Silver Glenn Springs Photographer}

On occasion photographers get together, style a model and shoot for fun. Photographer meet ups and shoot outs have quickly become one of my favorite things. They not only give us a chance to meet each other and chat about business but also gives us the chance to shoot creatively without any client expectations. It’s a chance to try out a new approach or perfect a new technique and usually check out a new location.

I recently got to meet up with some central and north Florida photographers in the Ocala National Forest at Silver Glenn Springs and photograph the stunning Olivia! This is just part of our session. We of course got her in the water too but that’s a blog post for another day. This gorgeous location is definitely one of my new favorites!

Stefanie & Nate {Ocean Ridge Sunrise Wedding}

Stefanie & Nate’s wedding is still one of my favorites to date for a handful of reasons. First, they decided to forfeit the idea of a big wedding and do an intimate ceremony on a private beach in Ocean Ridge instead which I loved! Without all the big hoopla and stress of the day, the love between them really came through. There is something so incredibility magical about intimate ceremonies. Second, they decided to tie the knot at sunrise and man did the Florida skies deliver that morning. Thirdly, their cute little man, Jackson got to be part of the day as well which just made it extra sweet.  And can we talk about her dress!? It was so stunning!

They said their vows as the sun came up and finished out the morning with a tasty brunch with close family and friends at Latitudes in Delray Beach. Knowing this couple personally, I could not have been more honored to capture their day and continue to watch their family grow. They are just one of those couples that you meet and you want to spend all day with. Stefanie is one of the most kind heart’ed people I ever met and Nate is total charmer, not to mention a riot in the humor department. They perfectly compliment each other in all the best ways possible.

Amanda & Patrick’s Wedding at B Ocean {South Florida Wedding Photographer}

I met Amanda at a bridal shower for one of my other In A Glimpse Photography brides (you can see that gorgeous shower here) and instantly feel in love with her. She had just recently got engaged and I was in love with her engagement ring! A few short months later I got to meet her fiance Patrick at Maria & John’s destination wedding in St. Augustine and instantly got to see why she was so smitten with him. The two of them together are a total blast! They are some of the happiest, fun, laid back people I have ever met! Not long after meeting them we did their engagement session which just made me love them even more. It was one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. Be sure to check it out here. With all of that said, you can imagine I was pretty excited for their wedding day.

First, let’s talk about their adorable wedding invitation that Amanda designed with their engagement photos!! And then there were her beautiful sparkly shoes and gorgeous starfish details. Amanda and Patrick tied the knot at B Ocean in Ft. Lauderdale and they could not have asked for better weather for their beach ceremony. Highlight of the day….for something a little nontraditional they had their guests toss baby beach balls as they officially became Mr. & Mrs. which was probably my favorite wedding detail by far. But it didn’t stop there. They had a gorgeous brunch with adorable cake pops and stunning table details to finish out their wedding day.


A Day In The Life ~ Capo Family

 

In A Glimpse is excited to officially start offering Day In The Life sessions. So what exactly is a Day In The Life session you may ask. Well, basically it’s me capturing your life as it happens every day. There is no schedule, no planned location, no matching outfits just beautiful photos of your family the way you see them.

Time has a funny way of creeping up on us. That’s part of the reason why we take photos, to remember those moments, those events, that we know we won’t remember forever. Why is it that we only take photos of the BIG stuff? Weddings, babies, birthday parties…major life events. Why do we rarely, if ever photograph the every day moments? At the end of our life time all those every day moments are just as life changing and beautiful as the really big ones but they are so rarely photographed.

As a photographer I love capturing families and children, especially as they grow. I’ve been fortunate enough to have some clients start with me capturing their wedding, all the way up to two babies and years later which is a pretty amazing thing! But I can say that behind every posed family photo session I’ve captured, most, if not all did not go as smoothly and as enjoyably as one might think from the photos. There is usually a lot of bribery and of course meltdowns and lets not forget that’s not including the stress that mom and dad feel to pick out matching outfits, pray the weather is nice and hope their kids cooperate. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sucker for a really great family portrait and I do believe it’s something you should do on a regular basis BUT I also think there is something incredible about capturing every days as it happens, un-posed, unscripted, just life as it is. Life with kids is messy and usually loud and pretty chaotic but that life is yours. The way your little one’s feet sit in high chair, the way your child lines up their toys, the way your kids interact with each other, the face they make right after you yell at them, the joy on their faces as they play in the backyard…..those moments are beautiful and as any parent would tell you they are fleeting. So why not capture them? And more importantly, you should be in those moments as well. Parents these days take tons of photos, I don’t doubt of their real life, but as a parent are you ever in any of those photos? Do they ever come out of your phone? Are they put away for safe keeping and memories for later?

The images below are of a family very near and dear to my heart. A while back ( like a long while back) I got to capture their life for the day. I’ve been waiting to share them until I was ready to open up these sessions to everyone and now I can’t wait any longer. Day In The Life sessions are officially available. I can spend 2 hours with your family or a whole day! And at the end of it you will have just a small glimpse of your life preserved in photographs. If you are interested in one of these sessions please head over to our contact page here .

Bo Willow’s 1st Birthday {Boca Raton Family Photographer}

Be prepared to see the cutest decorated 1st birthday party I’ve ever been too! I had the pleasure of capturing cute little Bo Willow as a newborn ( you can see all the red headed cuteness here) so I was honored to capture her first birthday.With a name like Bo Willow I knew her birthday would be as hippie chic as it gets. All the adorable decorations are by the talented Phases Of Love, and mom made all the whimsical dream catchers. And if the decorations weren’t adorable enough Bo has a really cute group of friends that were a blast to capture!

DeMello Family

I absolutely adore this family!  I’ve been lucky enough to capture Stephanie when she was expecting ( you can check out that session here) and the adorable Sloan when she turned 1 (her adorable pretty in pink cake smash session here) So you can imagine I as thrilled when they asked me to do a full extended family photo shoot! There is nothing better than 3 generations in one photos, this is what capturing moments is all about.
