Meet Juliana and her fiance Ryan, who we first met a yearish ago at her sister Gina’s Disney wedding! :)
See, another one of Gina’s bridesmaids, her friend Valerie, was getting married and brought us up to New Jersey for her wedding. A week before we got there, though, Gina’s little sister happened to get engaged so things timed out perfectly for a session with them while we were there! :)
One of my favorites! :)
Juliana, you’re ridiculously beautiful! :)
And then we found this location, which had Nate grinning behind his camera for a good 20 minutes!
Juliana and Ryan, thank you for having some fun with us and we can’t wait for your wedding!! :)
More of Gina and Bob and their awesome friends!
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
This was Violet 3(ish) years ago…
… And NOW! :)
Nate winning Eli over with his dance moves!
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
My view and Nate’s. :)
My 100% favorite. Violet, you’re amazing. :)
More faces of Eli! <3
Cynthia, Shane, Violet, and Eli, I so hope you know how much we adore you all!!! Until next time! <3
More Cynthia and Shane Blog Love!
Meet Violet in Celebration! :)
Meet Shannon, Sammy, Selah, and Hannah- The most loving family in Orlando. <3
I could not believe it’s been nearly 4 years since our last session with these faces, but they’re the sort of friends you go that long without talking to and then pick up like you never left off. Sammy and Shannon have been two of the most influential people in my life, and I know I’m not alone- They’re also the power couple behind God’s House Orlando.
Just one dinner with these guys left my love cup overflowing for weeks and I’m determined to not let so much time go by again!
Sammy wasn’t able to make it to the start of our session, so we just goofed off with the girlies for a bit. :)
Can you tell their parents are performers?! Mom was listing off scenarios for them to react to. <3
Ummmmm, Selah was in diapers when I first met her and she was my “baby dog.” I’d walk in to their front door and she’d crawl to greet me! :) My heart breaks a little every time I see her turning into a little woman!
Hannah is such a good big sister.
Sammy, the man with a heart like my husband’s, is so loved by his little women! <3
Shannon, the female Benjamin Button! <3
I love this photo so much- Can you see which girl takes after which parent? ;)
Sammy and Shannon, there aren’t enough words in the world to describe how much love my heart has for you two and how much I look up to you! Let’s do it again soon, ok?! :)
