Not sure what a Fresh 48 session is?  The moments after a baby is born (within 48 hours) is such an amazing almost dream-like time. These are the moments where you meet family and siblings can come to visit and meet their new baby brother or sister for the first time. It’s where they take in the moments after birth before going home and settling in to a new world and a new life. If you ever want to know what bliss and euphoria feels like- these are those moments.

When I first met Ewelina and Brett and their sweet family, I was in complete awe. Not only was everything so peaceful and sweet, ewelina couldn’t have possibly just had a baby based on how amazing she looked. I mean, completely jealous here.


These three meeting their baby brother, Beckett for the first time at Holmes Regional Medical Center right here in Melbourne Florida

One of my favorite images from the session. This is the most perfect little family and THIS is what I mean by euphoria and bliss.

And Baby Beckett didn’t make a single peep the whole entire time I was there. I mean, I have never met a baby that was more chill or calm- especially with commotion from big brother and big sisters. I think we know he is in for a busy world with three older siblings, but I think this guy is gonna be laid back kinda dude.

ok, my heart melted when I took this and not it’s melting all over again posting these

I think it’s safe to say that Baby Beckett is completely loved and these three are absolutely smitten with their new brother

mom and dad might be in love with their blonde little chill man, too

Welcome to the world, Beckett. You are so loved and adored already and I hope to watch you grow and be loved even more!

It’s no secret that I haven’t blogged in a while. For shame, I know. To be honest, and many of us in this industry will admit that it’s tough to find new and unique ways to describe the work we love doing. We tend to use the same words and it’s not because we don’t have great vocabularies, it’s because we love everyone we meet and what we do that we often tend to go to our comfort words to describe similar style shoots. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it can get hard to WANT to blog when we know we do this.

But, I am back. I’m not sure how often or how wordy I will be with blogs now but I can tell you that I have A TON to blog. We launched our Ambassador program for 2018 and we were overwhelmed with responses to be quite honest. I woke up one day when my dad was in town and turned my phone on and it dinged for about 30 minutes. No joke.

To say it was so hard to choose is an understatement, but ultimately out of more than 100 responses, I chose 12. These 12 were those I felt most connected to by first response and seemed genuinely excited for me to help them help me. Being new in town has it’s challenges and this program is an awesome way to get your name out there while also meeting new families or people in your target market that you can connect with and hopefully continue photographing. That is the ultimate goal and as a family photographer now, it’s even more important for me to connect and build connection so we can have long term relationships.

So, let me show you some of what I’ve been working on with these amazing Ambassadors that I am so proud and honored to get to know over the last few weeks. It has been so much fun and I still have a few more to go but I am pretty excited to share these with you!

I think the number one thing people worry about when it comes to Lifestyle sessions is- Is it going to be awkward having someone in our personal space just “following” us?

Truth is- for me, it’s not awkward but for the clients it definitely may be for the first few minutes, sure. There will be times when you’ll wonder if you’re doing something wrong, where do you put your hands, do you look at the camera or not? These are all super common thoughts and questions and even us as photographers ask these when we are in front of the camera as well. Completely normal. When I come in to a home for a lifestyle session, I like to observe for a bit and just wait it out. You can expect me to be there for 60-90 minutes and I will basically just play and follow everyone around and capture as I go. It’s a 95% candid session and as hard as it can be to ask like I am not there, that’s the number one thing I always tell my families.

This is Charlotte- or Charlie as she’s called. She is not even 2 and shes incredibly talkative, smart, and an absolute riot to watch sing along to Frozen.

Tiny little donut floaty- just scooting around in it. Hilarious.

Looking at these makes me laugh out loud every single time. Watch the cat as Charlie tries to shares and then changes her mind….

Sometimes, this is how I feel too.

A pair of curtains is all she needs….you’ll see

these moments don’t last long friends, truly. Pretty soon they will want to sit alone and it’s sad. Take it while you can- every minute you can.

Pig tails for the win!  Liz just told me that Charlie just let her start doing this so we had to get this moment for her

See- she does love curtains!  She sure does make them look fun!

These are the best!Look at these laughs!




No monster this time, this is her singing to Let it Go on the Frozen soundtrack! So lovely 🙂


Thank you both for allowing me to come into your home, for trusting me 8 years ago to photograph your wedding, and introducing me to the one and only Charlotte. Such a sweet time and I loved being there with you guys!
