An Afternoon at the Playground | Melbourne, FL Lifestyle Child Photography | Melbourne, FL Photographer

I know every parent says this, but I wish I could freeze time and keep this amazing two and a half year old at this stage just a little longer. AJ is so much FUN and I find myself wanting to remember the ordinary, every day moments with him.  So, I brought the big camera along this afternoon to capture him at one of his favorite places. Enjoy:)

Jessica - I love this! You definitely need to be shooting more lifestyle sessions all the time. When I have kids, you are coming into my home and capturing us as us. I love these shots. They’re just AJ having fun with real emotions and smiles. He’s going to love looking back at these with his future wife and kids saying, that was so me when I was a kid.

The Lopez Family | Palm Beach, FL Family Photography

Oh, sweet Lopez family. This family is so very dear to me. What an amazing honor it is when childhood friends ask me to photograph their own families. It is such a huge privilege to be trusted with creating keepsakes for them, and it is a wonderful time to re-connect as well! Joanna and Danny, thank you for choosing me to document this time in your lives. I really loved spending time with you and your three beautiful, spunky, respectful, and fun children!

We started out at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea then headed over to the bike trail on Palm Beach where the family enjoys going on evening walks. Without realizing it, Joanna chose the PERFECT colors to style her family for this shoot. I adore how the greens and purples coordinate with the landscape of the chosen locations. What a happy accident!! Here are some of my favorite images from this session- enjoy!:)
