Winter Garden, FL

Typically I meet my newborn families in their homes, but this adventurous couple came out to to fresh air and beautiful light in Winter Garden.  This made for some very sweet photos and our little tiny client was content for the majority of the session, until she woke up a little hungry =)

Crane’s Roost

Alison is the combination of Alicia and Jason’s name, hence only one L.  How cool is that?  She turned 1 when we took these family photos and she was very quiet and observant that morning.  Once she smiled though it was all sorts of AWWWWW =)  Soooo cute and what a picture perfect family!

Winter Park, FL

Love this adorable family!  The girls are so sweet and beautiful, it was a treat to photograph them.  My posts are falling behind – this was way back in April!  But better late than never, check them out =)

I’m sitting in the dark typing as quietly as I can while my 8 month old sleeps on a blanket next to me.  What in the world could you possibly be doing you ask?  I’m doing what I love, fitting it in between spending time with the ones I love.

When I first started taking photos I can honestly say I had no clue what I was doing.  Buy a camera, get some people to hire me and give them some great pictures.  Easy right?

I bought a camera I could afford, which was a Nikon D40 if you are curious, and practically begged my friends to be my guinea pigs so I could build up a portfolio.  I became obsessed with learning how to use a camera, because you know, I knew absolutely nothing about photography and it’s kind of a good idea to educate one’s self before putting their amazing talents out there.  It started off as a side job, working during the weekends here and there.  I had the overwhelming feeling I was in over my head every time I booked a session.  I made myself so sick with worry that I secretly wished my clients would cancel or reschedule.  I was worried that they would hate their pictures, that I would totally mess up and look like a fool and that I wasn’t worth what they were paying for.  Why did I keep going?  Because I need creativity in my life and photography is highly satisfying.  I’m also obsessive and stubborn as a mule, but most of all, my husband is the most loving, supportive, and best motivator ever.

This new career has taught me that I can pretty much tackle anything.  Who knew I needed to know so much about web developing, marketing, insurance, licensing, weather forecasting, outfit coordinating, newborn sleep habits, and bug repellents?  It’s helped me make the most amazing friends and I am always in awe of the the fact that I get to do this for a living.  I can spend my time being home with my kids, be as creative as my heart desires, meet the most wonderful people all the time and I am ever so thankful.  This is what I think as I sit here…while the kids are asleep….
