It Takes a Village - Maternity and Generations Photography Session - fort pierce family photographer

I was pretty excited when Savannah approached me to do an extended family session. We had known each other for a while through La Leche League and she was expecting her second. Breastfeeding and babies? Yes, please. And an opportunity to photograph her adorable son was totally the icing on the cake.

Grandparents were of course a part of this Extended Family Session. I think there is more than a little bit of Gator blood in this family. Possibly a third generation here in another 16 years?

Watching grandparents dote over their grandchildren is such a joy. I know, for my parents, it was almost more exciting than having their own children.

I loved his little face here. He was finally opening up and making some goofy expressions. As it turns out, this is his poop face. Sorry grandpa! Haha.

Finally, I captured the beautiful shape of her burgeoning belly. Supporting her only child while her arms are still free to.

And then, being supported by her family. Her village. I love finding deep and meaningful images like this for every family I work with. So much love and all the combined years of relationships captured in a single image. Oh, my heart!

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.
