Raven is 1!

I have had the honor of photographing Maureen & Ralph's, engagement session, wedding and now as a family of 3! Their little beauty Raven just turned 1 and we did this super casual lifestyle session at our studio.  Maureen has been riding horses pretty much her whole life and even had some equestrian details in their wedding so my little wooden rocking horse was perfect!  Both of Raven's outfits were handmade.  The bubble outfit from Laine Avery  and the outfit in the very last photo is from Henny Lou Kids, Maureen's cousin's Etsy shop.  Raven's birthday party was kitty themed with pink and gold sequins.  She was not a huge fan of getting her hands down and dirty in that cake but so adorable!!!!  Happy Birthday Raven!!! 

Aiden is 1!

We photographed Nicole and David's wedding almost 4 years ago and at the time they were living in NYC.  I am SO excited that they not only moved back to Tampa but we get to photograph them as a party of 3!!!  Aiden loves Elmo and is just so freaking adorable!!!  Nicole had this backdrop custom made by an artist friend of theirs, Matthew David.  Aiden wasn't quite sure to make of the cake at first but with a little cheering on he had a pretty fabulous cake smash!  Besides the actual photography part, I LOVE getting to see our couples grow into families and capture these amazing moments for them.  It was so hard to choose but here's a few of my favs! 

Laila!

I've gotten to photograph so many important moments for Anum and Eihab, engagement session (one of my favs ever at IKEA:-), wedding, maternity session, and now they are officially a party of 3!  Little miss Laila is so cute and squishy she was very alert and didn't want to miss any of the action.  I love seeing our couples become families it's literally my favorite!  Stay tuned for Laila's 6 month and 1 year session!!!

Ezra is 1!

This handsome little guy just turned 1!  Ezra is actually wearing the same sailor outfit his daddy wore when he was a little boy.  Rachel had the cutest birthday banner and little bow tie with  suspenders.  It was his very first time having cake and he did not like it!! Rachel actually had to put blueberries on top so he would try it.  Ezra has the most beautiful big brown eyes and eyelashes I would die for:-) These sweet moments are just so special! 

Sweet Ella's First Birthday!

Little Miss Ella turned one! We had so much fun celebrating Sarah & Troy and this little cutie at the park.  She loved the giant pink balloon!  After the park, there was a fluffy pink cake with a tutu and little banner just for her.  She wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake at first but she figured it out:-) We always love seeing our couplesaHappy birthday Ella! xoxoxo

Little Miss Aubrey

This little beauty was about 3 weeks old when I got to photograph her.  She was awake for our entire session and has a very sweet and sassy little personality already!  Lauren & Josh have become very good friends of ours and I'm so excited for their new little addition!!  Plus Maddie and Evie are excited to have another princess to play with. We did a very simply lifestyle session just in their room and I love that they have a little "love" pillow:-) 

Owen!

I love getting to photograph the next stage in our couples lives which is usually babies!  Michelle and Graham had a beautiful little boy born on April 16th and I got to meet him very shortly after, which is my favorite:-)  It's both of his grandma's first grandchild and the afghan and little outfits were both handmade by them.  Owen slept through the entire session and he's SO sweet!
