Sparkle and Sass

The Goldstein girls are back! Recently, I had a session with the adorable Ryleigh and Teagan for their family’s holiday card. My favorite part of the shoot--other than their sassy personalities--were the pink glitter polka dotted dresses.

The above photos may have been a result of bribing them with chocolate. They are wise beyond their years…they know how to negotiate just like their mama.

These photos didn’t make the holiday card, but I will share the winning photo once it arrives in my mailbox…it’s too cute!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters

In October, I volunteered for the Red Shoe Council’s inaugural Casino Royale fundraiser, and as luck would have it, this adorable family won a holiday portrait session with yours truly.

I loved that Stephanie had a vision for her Christmas cards. She had the whole family, including the dog Stanley, wear ugly Christmas sweaters. In the words of the great Ted Mosby:

These photos were taken at the University of Tampa near the Henry B. Plant Museum. Apparently, this is a popular location for Christmas card photo shoots because I counted at least six other photographers setting up their shoots. I'll post more photos later. The ones above didn't make the final cut, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise of Stephanie's Christmas card!

I’ll be back at UT for another family session next week. There’s still time to book your family portrait session so contact me today!

A Cute Little Pumpkin

For Landon’s two-month-old photo shoot, we embraced the fall theme. We took some football photos (Go Gators, Go Bulls). This was the messiest photo shoot to date because it involved a lot of hay. But the results are pretty cute, so it was totally worth it!

As a bonus, Landon’s grandparents, aunt and uncle tagged along for the fun so naturally I put them to work--they were excellent assistants.

I’m looking forward to Landon’s upcoming shoots during the holiday season…it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
