I received a message one day on Facebook that said ” I’m embarrassed to admit I have never gotten professional photos of my littles. Can ya help a mama out?” I giggled out loud because this is such a common thing I hear, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about at all. Time is short, schedules are crazy- things happen! Hearing from Sarah was pure excitement! I photographed their engagement session year ago and shortly after, their key west wedding. I was 6 weeks pregnant with my first born when I photographed their wedding so it was an exciting time for many reasons.
Fast forward all these years later and now we are back in Florida and I found out we only live 3 miles from Sarah, Stevie and their beautiful babes Maddie and Beckett! Meeting these two gorgeous little humans was a pure joy and right from the moment I walked in the door, Maddie and I became best friends and she became my little camera helper. Beckett was celebrating a big milestone- his first birthday- and eating a yummy pumpkin donut while leaving a crumb trail everywhere he went.
We started outside to play and relax a little and the swings were a perfect place to start!
Maddie found a spot she loved and it looked quite fun-
The best smile from mama’s little boy. Happy Birthday Beckett!
Totally akin to their personalities….Beckett sure loves his mama and Maddie adores playing with her daddy
Maddie so kindly made hot dogs for me and her brother wanted in on the cooking, too!
Their sunroom had the best light (and air conditioning) so we made our way back in there for some fun family time.
After Stevie inspected Maddie’s boots for ants for the third time, she got her shoes on and was ready to go out front, but not before a little sweet moment caught here
Look at this big guys shirt!!! so happy to be ONE!
Maddie loves super heros so I don’t know if she intended the pose on the right or if she secretly is a super hero herself. I guess we’ll never know 😉
This hole in the fence is just the best. Their pup, Finley can greet his loves and they just adore it. It’s super cute
Smash cake time and this boy was eyeing it from the moment mom brought it out of the fridge. Can’t say I blame him
The family that eats cake together……gets blue mouth together? Either way, it’s fantastic!
I think it’s safe to say they all had a really good day! Me too….me too.
