Marc + Vic | Engaged | Florida Engagement Session

Combine the most beautiful and golden afternoon with two of the loveliest people, and you have the combination for a perfect engagement session. Marc + Vic and I met and began their session at a lush green field under a bright sun, weaving our way through tall grasses and plants, discussing wedding venues, travel, and Mexican food. After a bit of exploring in the field, we traveled to our second location, which had more of an urban feel with its olive green doors and concrete floors. That location was new to me and I absolutely loved shooting there. Marc + Vic, you two were amazing and I had such a blast on your session! I love the images we captured and I’m thrilled to be sharing them today. I wish you all the best!

Enjoy the images.

Have a lovely week, friends! Make it a good one.

Gabby | Florida Golden Light + Soccer Senior Session | Class of 2017

Gabby: soccer pro, master of sarcasm, book lover, and beach goer.

I’ve known Gabby for a good while: we played soccer together for three years and she is one of the kindest, funniest, and coolest gals around. Photographing her senior session was a blast and we were able to incorporate her lifelong love of soccer into her images all while chatting about Disney, upcoming school plans, and how much we both love the beach. Gabby’s favorite reads include Harry Potter, she’s a big Disney fan (same), and absolutely loves Christmas. She’ll be wrapping up her AA degree and is majoring in Elementary Education in order to become a teacher. We finished her session right as the sun was setting, and because we had talked about our love of all things Chick-Fil-A her mom gave me a coupon for a free Chick-Fil-A sandwich, so our evening definitely ended on an awesome note. Gabby, I’m so thankful I was able to capture your senior photos, and wish you the best in all you set out to achieve!

Enjoy the images.

Have a lovely Thursday, friends! Fill it with kindness + memories.

Kylie | Epcot + Disney Senior Session | Class of 2017

When I posted a sneak peek of Kylie’s session, I said she’s a professional moonwalker. I still stand by that statement.

Kylie’s session was one in a million: we split our time between the countries of Epcot and the lands of the Magic Kingdom, and looked specifically for those areas that weren’t overtly Disney. (Even though we did sneak in a few pictures with Minnie ears.) We walked, we danced, talked about ostriches (her favorite animal), a shared love of Chick-Fil-A, and captured images along the way in two of our favorite places. She will be heading off to college this fall to pursue a degree in Early Education. Kylie is fantastic with kids, and this seems like a perfect fit to me. Kylie, I absolutely adore your images and I’m so excited to bring them to the blog today! I wish you all the best in whatever you set out to accomplish.

Have a fantastic week, friends! Make it a good one, and be thankful for the little things.

Elizabeth | Walt Disney World Senior Session | Class of 2018

“Have I gone mad?”

“I’m afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are.”

My oh my, what a wonderful day. Elizabeth and I met at the Grand Floridian on a cool summer afternoon- thanks to the light cloud cover- quickly became friends, and began her session. We toured around the Victorian style hotel, chatting about Wishes, if the new fireworks show lives up to it (we both think it does), finding the best spots for images along the way. After spending some time at the Grand and an outfit change, we hopped aboard a empty monorail car (I mean, how perfect is that?!) and made our way to the Magic Kingdom. The best locations were found and images were captured, and we wrapped up as the light was fading to make way for the nightly fireworks spectacular.

Both spunky and sweet with a love for magic and whimsy, Elizabeth is a Disney fan through and through. She will be graduating high school early and will be receiving her Associates degree simultaneously this coming spring. Alice is her favorite character, she loves being involved in her local church, and will be heading to UCA to obtain her bachelor’s in business with the goal of working for Disney corporately. I know for certain this will happen- she oozes the Cast Member personality + mentality and just needs the name tag. Elizabeth, you absolutely shone during your senior session and it was a blast getting to hang out with you! I wish you all the best in your future, and if you’re ever back down this way let’s grab some pineapple pizza and have a Disney day.

Enjoy the images.

Have a magical weekend, friends!
