And the rain rain rain came down down down… 🎶 At least for two 15 minute periods during the lovely Isabella’s session. Florida weather is strange, y’all! Rain aside, her session was one for the books and practically perfect in every way. We began on the cheeriest of streets and traipsed through the most magical place on earth, chatting about her college plans, our favorite musical theater productions, and all things Disney. Isabella is a big fan of 90s shows, Mary Poppins, mozzarella cheese, and she aspires to travel through Europe one day. After graduation in the spring, she will be heading off to pursue a degree in the magical major of Musical Theater, something she discovered in 4th grade and has been passionate about ever since. Isabella, I adore the images we captured and had a blast hanging out during your session! I wish you all the best in college + beyond.
Enjoy the images.
Have a lovely rest of your week, friends! Finish strong.
Quote of the day: “If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.”
She is beauty, she is grace. No, really, she is: meet Grace, class of 2018. We met on a beautiful, golden day in the midst of a cloudy and cold week at a seaside boardwalk resort and began her session. A Disney fan through and through, Grace and I hit it off talking about our favorite things at the parks, her college plans, the wonderful creation that is a Dole Whip, and reading. After graduation this spring she is heading off to Notre Dame to major in chemical engineering and aspires to become a Disney Parks and Resorts Imagineer. That sounds pretty perfect to me. Chicago is her favorite city, she is extremely knowledgeable about all things Disney snacks, reading is her favorite pastime, and she has visited Walt Disney World over 30 times and lives all the way over in Texas!
We made our way around the pastel colored storefronts and then transported over to a different set of pastel colored storefronts, complete with smells of cotton candy and sounds of four part harmony in the background. The light was beautiful, her outfits were perfect, and she even had a pair of rose gold Minnie Mouse ears. Underneath a dusky sky, we celebrated a successful session with Dole Whips and laughter. Grace, I adore your session and the images we captured. I wish you all the best in college + beyond!
Enjoy the images.
Have a magical rest of your week, friends! Make it count.
Quote of the day: “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”
Devon + Carrie: cousins, bosses, professional Mickey ice cream bar eaters, and absolutely delightful gals. We spent a day waltzing through the most magical place on earth, laughing and snapping photos along the way underneath golden light and blue skies. They are the founders of Zip-A-Dee Tees, an apparel company for trend-setting Disney-goers, and they make fabulous shirts. (Their “My oh My” shirt and “Bibbidi Bobbidi Brunch” shirts are some of my favorites!) Devon is a personal trainer with a knack for getting to know people and loves Disney music and milkshakes, Carrie is a college student with a dream to work as a branding specialist or creative marketer, and loves the beach, organizing, and being creative through designing, doodling, and painting. They share the same laugh + passion to make the world a better and more magical place. Devon + Carrie, hanging out was an absolute blast and I adore the images we captured. I wish y’all all the best!

My oh my, what a wonderful day. If you mix a classic gal with a love of art and performance with a bit of pixie dust, kindness, Dole Whip, and magic, you have the lovely Caitlin. It was a beautiful day when we met against the backdrop of the most magical place on earth, complete with pastel colors and smells of sweets and popcorn. We instantly connected over our shared love of nighttime Disney parades, and chatted about college plans, art, Dole Whip, the Disney College Program, and vintage style. She’s a retro soul with sharp style, and her outfits were absolutely perfect for her session; she even had a brand new Magic Kingdom dress which featured different park attractions and icons along the skirt!
Caitlin is an artist through and through, and will be heading off to the University of West Florida to major in fine art and illustration, and aspires to come to Orlando to continue her education at UCF (Go Knights!) and experience the Disney College Program. Her dream job is to be a storyboard artist or character designer at Walt Disney Animation Studios, which I believe is a perfect fit. She’s a fellow cat person, loves new art supplies and dum-dum lollipops, and can do a spot-on Donald Duck impression. Caitlin, your session was absolutely wonderful and I adore the images we captured. I wish you success in what you set out to achieve!
Enjoy the images.
Have a beautiful weekend, friends!
