Regina’s Farm Wedding: Caitlin and Zach

When I first met Caitlin, we met at a local (and a personal favorite) coffee shop. She was planning this huge and elaborate wedding, and was a tad overwhelmed by the whole wedding process. Caitlin and her fiance, Zach, are super laid back so planning something like this was a bit foreign to them.

Shortly after booking my services, I received a phone call. These two decided to run away to a tropical paradise in the Keys and elope, surrounded only by their 14 closest friends and family. Super romantic, right?!

You’re probably asking yourself, then why is this blog titled, “Regina’s Farm Wedding: Caitlin and Zach?”

Well, the newlyweds still wanted to celebrate with their friends and extended relatives. So why not throw a huge and laid-back party at Regina’s Farm, a cool Fort Lauderdale venue serving traditional Brazilian meals?! The perfect spot to be officially introduced as husband and wife to all their friends and family!

So the day started as all weddings do, getting glammed up by a talented team:

Meet the Robisons | A Virginia Family Session

Meet the Robisons | A Virginia Family Session

A Virginia family session is never complete without a beautiful family, gorgeous weather, and an amazing location. That’s exactly what we got during my last session and day in Virginia.

Meet the Robisons: this family and I go way back. Madi and I attended George Mason University together where we were roommates. We lost touch for a bit but reconnected when she became engaged to this fine man below. You guessed it – she became a Sweet Memories Photography bride! Their wedding can be viewed here: Madi + Geoff

The Robisons welcomed this little bundle of joy in early 2017. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until 9 months later that I got to meet baby Ayla.

Ayla is nothing but soft skin, giggles, and toothy grins! She’s the perfect mix of both Madi and Geoff, and just as photogenic!

We took advantage of this and got some photos of just mommy and daddy (something they haven’t done since they were married in 2014!)A Virginia Family Session - Boca Raton PhotographerWe love Ellanor C.

A Virginia Session with the Donahoe Family

A Virginia Session with the Donahoe Family

Take a trip with me to my home state and view the beautiful fall photos from a Virginia session with the Donahoe family. Seasons and colors unseen and unheard of here in sunny Florida! And a family whom I haven’t seen in a year!

One year really does make a huge difference! Maybe not so much for Elaine and Andrew, who haven’t aged a day, but you see the time change in their son! Boy, has Lucas grown! I never get over how quickly kids grow up! Just look at first session compared to now!

Modern Boca Mom’s 2017 Family Holiday Session

Modern Boca Mom’s Family Holiday Session

Modern Boca Mom‘s family holiday session at Boca Raton’s Sanborn Square was a tropical one. With the ladies wearing matching patterns and the men complimenting their style, this family was looking quite fabulous! They obviously came prepared for their 2017 holiday shoot!

Boca Family

Michelle, Modern Boca Mom herself, and I first met when I moved to Boca Raton in 2016. Since then we’ve partnered up. This means that I have had the pleasure of working with her and her family now for over a year. They are the kindest, most welcoming people ever! And super stylish, as you can see by the photos below!

Every year we work together on not only holiday sessions, like the recent Halloween one featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse or this one, but other fun projects. We work together on other family milestones like Aden’s Christening and Avery’s 4th birthday. I’ve also had the honor of photographing Michelle’s first pound class (she’s certified and awesome, people!) and a shoot for Florida KidCare.

So if you’re a Boca mommy or a mommy visiting the area and looking for the best things to do, best deals, or most recommended spots, go to her site! She’s amazing and one to follow!

Reunited with the Fontaine Family

Reunited with the Fontaine Family

It’s been two years but I have finally reunited with the Fontaine family! And oh my, how things have changed:

Will is all grown up, I finally met the family cat, and Liz and Scott have found their dream house in Alexandria. It was such a pleasure getting a tour of their new home and playing with Will. He was proud to show off his cat (Olive), his legos, and his mad soccer skills!

I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Fontaine’s family’s special moments from the very beginning! From Will’s homecoming to spending the holidays  with them and their winter session in DC. Not to mention their decision to add on another family member! Just looking back at these sessions, it’s crazy how much everyone and everything has changed!

Liz, Scott, Will, and Olive: Thank you so much for having me photograph your lovely family again. It was so wonderful catching up and I look forward to next year! And congratulations on finding your dream home! It’s amazing, and so are you!
