Hello, Hermanns

My sister in law is amazing. She's wicked creative, resourceful, kind, stylish, and has made three really cute babies. And I'm not just saying this because she's made my brother happier than he's ever been. She really is the sister I never had.

Botanical Garden Family Session - Ebb and Flow Photography

So when my trip to the Pacific Northwest, where she lives, coincided with her birthday... Well, I couldn't think of a better gift than a family session to preserve memories of how happy and thriving they all are.  It was the least I could do for all of the inspiration and parenting know-how she has doled on me over the years.

Zombie Apocalypse Family Session

This family is a blast to photograph. Not only are they fun, but they are creative and simply magnificent in front of the lens.

I mean, look at them! This is ALL them.

They are huge fans of The Walking Dead and wanted a family session reminiscent of the Zombie Apocalypse. As a fan myself, how could I say no?

This was the second installment in #jabonetemonth and the sessions, I swear, just get more and more fun.

And how else would a Zombie Apocalypse session be better wrapped up than with some baby zombie action? Hint: their next session of #jabonetemonth is based on this idea. Didn't I say these guys were fun? ;)

Introducing Anderson

The next step in this adventuresome couple's life was parenthood. I could tell by the way they held their newborn son and gazed upon him in all of his newness that they were going to embrace this adventure with the same love and passion they have put into their lives and work. His room is a testament to their dedication and attention to detail. And her maternity session was extraordinary with some unforgettable weather.  What a lucky little guy to be brought into such an amazing family.

This was Anderson's first time being worn at 8 days old. He had been varying degrees of fussy through most of the session and within minutes he calmed right down and fell asleep.

happy and adventurous family - white city park - fort pierce family photographer

When this family rolled out of their new mini van clad in eyelet lace I swooned. I have always had a (secret) thing for eyelet lace, so I just knew I would love photographing this family.

The girls were so adventurous, climbing up everything and running everywhere. The oldest said, "take a picture of me, I'm lost in the forest." What a brave little soul, running carelessly through the dappled fading sunlight among the palm trees.

And what an inspiring, loving momma. She is so full of love you can see it pouring out of her in everything she does. From the way she explored along the water's edge with her daughters, to how she melted into her husband's arms, and especially in her immediate response to nurse her youngest after she had been bitten by a hand full of fire ants (alas, it is Florida and they seem to be everywhere). I consider myself lucky to know her and her family.

quintessential florida - treasure coast family photography - palm tree alley

One thing I absolutely love about the Treasure Coast is that there is no lack of locations for photo shoots. We have the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean which shares its cerulean, aquamarine, and sea glass green waters with the fabulous Indian River Lagoon. Talk about amazing beaches and beautiful coastal habitats. Then of course we have savannahs, coastal dunes, forests, rivers, islands, orange groves, botanical gardens... the list of outdoor photography venues goes on and on. And it is Florida so there are always palm trees to be found.

Location scouting can be a fun part of being a photographer. It helps to have my dedicated models around to take some test shots.

The other day I stumbled upon two rows of palm trees that were planted at an entrance to a beach. These palm trees are begging to have portraits taken among them. Imagine your family portrait or your beautiful and round pregnant belly framed by quintessential Florida?  Or what what about a romantic snuggle captured in time with the sun setting behind you?
