A Wintry Fort Lauderdale Family Session

A Wintry Fort Lauderdale Family Session

Okay, so let’s be honest here. Florida doesn’t see winter. Well, at least not the type of winter that you picture: white grounds, snow falling, bare trees … but hey, it’s still winter and this blog post is about a wintry Fort Lauderdale family session. And while you may not see snow or icicles on bare trees, we did have cool wind, white sand, and lots of blue (water, not ice, that is).

Celebrate!

The Olin family had much to celebrate about! For one thing, their entire family was together. But more importantly, it was grandma’s 75th birthday! This session, and the trip to Fort Lauderdale, was her big birthday gift!

So Much Fun!

We had so much fun photographing and playing on the beach. T’was the night before Christmas and all through the beach, was a family posing while the seagulls screech. Okay, maybe should I stick to my day job. I never claimed to be a writer, or a poet! Although, it is quite true. The seagulls kept photo-bombing our session (you’ll see them make an appearance in a shot or two below, but they definitely made appearances in the majority of our shots).

A Traditionally Beautiful Fort Lauderdale Family Session

A Traditionally Beautiful Fort Lauderdale Family Session

Traditional or not, I always love a good Fort Lauderdale family session. In this case, we went the more traditional route, as the Stevensons family wanted a specific look. (That’s okay, I still snuck in a few candid shots!)

Who doesn’t love the beach?!

We all woke up bright and early and met up at the beach. The Stevensons come here yearly to celebrate the New Year. Since the eldest child is about to run off to college, it was crucial for at least one more traditional New Year vacation as a family.

“You never know what the future holds, or where my life may take me.”

This may be the last time everyone is all together in the same place for a while. Because of this, mom and dad (moreso mom, than dad haha!) wanted updated family portraits.

I had the pleasure of doing this for them and taking the below pictures:

A Red Reef Park Family Session | Boca Raton, Florida

A Red Reef Park Family Session

Like most families, this one can rarely be seen all together in the same location. But when they are, it’s a reason to celebrate! What better way to celebrate that by having a Red Reef Park Family Session?

Session Time!

When speaking to Victoria before our session, I knew this was going to be a lot of fun. It was a mini-reunion with cuties involved! How could it not?!

With beautiful afternoon light and lots of room for the girls to play, it was the perfect session.

In between our traditional poses, everyone took turns with the beach balls and playing with the little ladies. This is something I always recommend. It is so difficult for your little ones to sit still, let alone smile and focus on the photographer for long periods of time. Having minutes in between pictures allows them to let loose and have some fun of their own. Plus, the candid pictures of kids being kids are the best! Capturing them in their element is something I personally am passionate about!

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this wonderful family. They were the sweetest and so easy to photograph!

Enjoy!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun | A Boca Raton Family

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun | A Boca Raton Family

A girls’ outing that was long overdue, much needed, and a must for documenting! Check out a Boca Raton family session unlike any others. Just three beautiful ladies, nice scenery, and the beach (who doesn’t love the beach??)

The Ladies

This family is ridiculously and amazingly close to one another (super jealous). Danielle, the tallest lady in the trio, also known as ‘mom,’ wanted updated photos of her two daughters. Kali, the eldest sister, is at college and isn’t at home nearly as much as everyone would like. And her relationship with her younger sister, Kayden, is unbreakable (and super adorable). So it was important for the ladies to have some documentation of their time together before life became too hectic and/or the girls became too cool to be in pictures. Plus,

Although Danielle only wanted photos of her two lovely girls, I made sure she got in on some of the action! I mean, when you’re as gorgeous as she is and have those muscles, you should never hide from the camera!!!

Location, Location, Location

I had the pleasure of photographing the ladies at one of my favorite parks: South Inlet Park. This park is amazing with its lush greenery, neat jetty, and clean beach. Not to mention, great for people-watching and kid-friendly. They even have pavilions and grills for cook-outs, and playgrounds for the little ones!

By the Way …

Danielle is the owner of Oceans234, which is the hubs’ and my go-to restaurant for special dinners and happy hours (at least once a week). So, if you haven’t been there yet, GO! I promise you, you won’t regret it. We take all of our friends, family, and guests here and everyone leaves happy, full, and raving about its amazingness. **No, this is not a sponsored ad. We had been going here for over a year before meeting Danielle haha!**
