Once upon a time, we photographed Katie and Jason’s wedding in Ohio!

Katie and I worked together in Fantasyland so she comes back to Orlando pretty often. This was Spencer’s second trip to Disney, and our first time meeting her! It took us quite a while to line up a date that worked for both of us, and even though I’m bummed the weather didn’t exactly work out in our favor, I love the photos we came away with. :)

Lately I’ve been in a state of constant shock how quickly time is flying by. I’ve been getting all sappy about our nephews growing so quickly, and Ellie and John Thomas’s photo shoot was no different.

Look at all the stages of Ellie we’ve been able to capture!

Ellie

John Thomas, or “JT” as he prefers to be called now (*gulp!*) was the first baby we ever photographed! He was just 9 months old on our first session, so all I have to do is look at him to have a physical reminder of how long we’ve been photographers.

We photographed John Thomas’s sessions before we even had a blog, but I did manage to track this one down!!

See why this family coined the term “Root lifers?”

Winter Garden Family Session

We love this family so, so much and it’s been so special to watch these two grow. We’ve done their sessions in Celebration and their family nursery, so this time, we shot around downtown Winter Garden. :)

We usually just photograph the kids, but Misty realized they haven’t had a family portrait of them since Ellie was born. Nate and I were more than happy to fix that! <3

We ended their session the way we should end every session- Mom and Dad whispering to each other which kid is their favorite. ;) Misty, I hope you know how much these sessions mean to us!! Thank you for letting us capture your family once again. Until next time! <3

Brooke and my parents were best friends before we were born, so I’ve known Brooke my whole life. Her mom is a true aunt to me, and everyone in this family is so special to mine! We photographed Brooke and Kyle’s wedding years ago, back when I didn’t used to blog every wedding, so sadly I can’t link to it. :( Last year, we photographed Brooke’s mom’s wedding (see Aunt Martha’s wedding here!), and this year, we’ll photograph her little sister Katy’s wedding in Arizona.

I was about to blog Katy and Nick’s engagement session when I realize I never blogged the session we did with her nephew!

So world, meet William Otis. <3

I refuse to believe it’s been six years since Carly and Kyle’s wedding day!

It’s always fun catching up with past couples and watching their families grow, but this time felt so different! I’ve been following Carly’s blog religiously since she became a mother. I read every word of her in-depth post about Eva’s incredible (and slightly terrifying) birth story, already knew the origins of her children’s names, cried reading about Eva’s first ER trip after an allergic reaction to peanuts, and swoon with every tea party and zoo trip Carly takes with her kiddos. Because I follow along with this family’s daily life, I didn’t feel like I was meeting her kids for the first time, instead, I felt like I was meeting two little celebrities!

You can read Ever Clever Mom (Carly’s blog) here if you’re remotely interested in cute kids but most especially if you’re also raising a kid with severe food allergies. You can find a link to her other blogs here, which of course includes Magical Day Weddings, a blog about Disney weddings!

We met Carly, Kyle, Eva, and Calvin at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and it was our first time shooting here. :)

Oh, how I wanted to take Eva home with me!!!! We knew the shoot was a success when at the end of our session, Eva asked if we wanted to live in their hotel room with them. <3

It was one of the worst moments of my life: My first “real” car accident, and I’d pulled over in the Downtown Disney parking lot with my engine smoking. I had just dropped my best friend off at work, and the only other people I knew in town with cars weren’t answering their phones. I had no money for a cab and no idea what to do since my Mom wasn’t picking up either, but then I remembered a friend from high school had come down on the Disney College Program, too. Our schedules never seemed to line up to meet and we both got busy, but here I had no one else to call and felt so alone and then Tiffany picked me up and all was right with the world. Well, sort of- I still had to call my Dad and let him know I was in an accident and it was totally my fault and my car was un-driveable, but that’s neither here nor there. :)

Tiffany is just that kind of friend- Go a year, or in the case of our session, 10 years!, without much communication and then you can pick up right where you left off! I was so often teased for my Disney obsession in high school that when I met a girl who not only loved Disney as much as I did, but whose Dad was known for his 4th of July Disney-inspired fireworks show, well- I was in heaven!! I’m so happy my sweet friend found an amazing husband and is the proud momma to one of the silliest little boys I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet! Christopher and my husband became fast friends and I so love the photos we got from their Port Orleans Riverside session. :)
