You should remember these faces by now if you’ve been following our blog for a while, as I’m pretty sure they’ve taken the top spot for the most-photographed Root family! :)

I mean, surely you remember Mr. Liam…

Here’s my favorite before and after- It’s been so fun watching him grow! :)

Disney World Magic Kingdom Family Session

These guys came to town for their annual trip to Disney, and we had the pleasure of joining them for a character breakfast and some play time in the park. And with faces like these, you know we brought the cameras!

Liam’s little sister, Madeline, is just as gorgeous as her momma.

It’s so hard to believe that just three months ago, we listed our home for sale and had fingers crossed to be moved to Florida by Christmas. Here I am in September typing this post from our apartment, all moved in and everything. Our first month here was busy and hectic and messy and wonderful and we’re so, so happy with our decision.

I thought I’d have to constantly remind myself reasons we moved and need cheering up, but instead, I wake up every morning wondering why we didn’t move back home sooner. I’m so thankful for all of the love we’ve gotten the past month and I wish I could hug all of y’all!

I generally did most of the driving when it came to our monthly Florida drives, but there was noooooo way I was driving this guy! I tried telling myself that it was just like when I drove at Kilimanjaro Safaris, but I kept psyching myself out even thinking about maneuvering this through a gas station. I mean… Look at this thing!

Nathanial to the rescue! <3 He had me swooning with every lane change.

423

Huck and I just chilled. :)

422

This was Huck’s 9th move in 9 years. He’s a total pro.

424

Nate was unpacking and found the very moment I was over this move. ;)

425

Even though Huck’s a great travel companion, he’s apparently not a fan of the crazy that a home sale brings. He needed a little tummy medicine time. :(

426

August was full of visits with friends! First up was meeting this little man, “Riley Nathanial.” <3

427 428

Then began our college send-off tour! :( We’re heartbroken to lose our favorite assistant Lydia, who’s headed to George Washington University. Nate’s brother dropped by to say goodbye on his way to school in Texas.

429

Last but not least, we bid farewell to Sara, our Atlanta-bound “fairy goddaughter.” We will miss this face so much! <3

431

I forgot about Florida sunsets! <3

433

Of course, the highlight of our month was becoming Disney annual passholders for the first time in years.

434

The parks are always more fun with friends. And wine. Lots of wine. <3

435

We watched Illuminations with our own eyes, not through a camera lens! Well… except for this one photo Nate grabbed. :)

436

We got to go on a super special backstage tour of the American Idol Experience the week it closed. More photos of that over on the DisRoots blog. :)

440

You know that uh-dorable couple on the header of our Root Photography Facebook page? Well… We were finally reunited!

437

And met her ridiculously gorgeous offspring, Sadie Sally! <3

438

Of course, the highlight of my year has been spur of the moment park dates with Nathanial. I was a little burnt out one night and Nate stood up, announced we were heading to the Magic Kingdom, and we drove 13 minutes to the park. One dinner in the park and spin on the Mark Twain Riverboat, and I was in heaven.

439

I can’t even believe all those things happened in one month! What a ride it’s been and now we’re one month closer to cooler weather. :) I hope you’ve all had a wonderful end to your summer and I’ll be back to sharing pretty wedding photos soon! <3

I know, I know, I shouldn’t have favorites.

But these two just melt me. Cynthia and Shane were one of our very first Walt Disney World wedding couples! They were married back in 2008 (which you can read on our old blog here!), and a couple years later, we met them in Celebration for a session with their daughter Violet, who just turned one. Look at her today!! <3

Not to be out-shined, of course, by her spunky little brother, Eli! <3

LOVE. THIS. FAMILY.

Funny story about Eli: Just like 99% of the kids we photograph, Eli really took to Nate. In the middle of the session, Cynthia told him, “Quick! Look at Miss Jensey!” and then, “Ok! Now where’s Mr. Nate?” Eli looked at her and shouted, “NO! That’s Miss Bobbi!” Cynthia corrected my name to him, and then he insisted, “NO! (Points to Nate) Miss Bobbi!” And from then on, we all lovingly referred to Nate as “Miss Bobbi.” :)

Cynthia is such a fun mommy, whether breaking into song with the kiddos or really getting them to ham it up for our cameras! :)

We shot this session last October and I just about melted seeing this family headed out to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! <3
