I love kids. I remember being in such a rush to grow up and now I long for the freedom of being a child. We think we’ll be free when we reach adulthood but little do we know that childhood is true freedom. I wish I could get that message across to my kids: enjoy that feeling of complete adventure and spontaineity that you have right now, absorb every minute of your innocence, but I sound like an adult when I say those things.

It took about a millisecond to convince these kids to lay on the grass and roll down the slope of their backyard; their parents are probably going to remember me for a long time thanks to my little idea. :)  If I could postpone twilight and hadn’t had 20 lbs. of photographic equipment on me, I would have rolled down the hill with them (again, adult thinking). In retrospect, I wish I would have and then their parents would remember me for a long time as a complete lunatic.

These kids have the most amazing personalities; we hit it off right away and although I didn’t roll down the hill with them we did hold hands and skipped down the road together. Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon.

Meet Justin. He is a pretty laid back senior who knows what he wants. We spent some time yesterday at beautiful Callaway Gardens for his senior pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:

Looking ultra-cool in his car.

His family and I are both from South Florida so we are Miami Dolphins fans.

Justin is a welder and wants to pursue a career in this field after graduation. I came over to the shop to see him work and capture some of shots of this part of his life.

And no, this is not his sister, it’s his beautiful mom :)

You can feel it in the air, mornings and evenings are cooler, the light is getting softer, you can actually breathe when you go outside rather than trying to aspire vapor. The days of green grass, slip-and-slides, and popsicles are once again coming to an end.

For my kids, that means spending every afternoon in the backyard, walking barefoot on the soft green grass, doing scavenger hunts and decorating the concrete driveway with whimsical landscapes rendered in pastel colored chalk. And I happily shoot away the array of colors.

Her favorite tree…

Planning out her next move…

Our golden retriever Pepper likes to supervise.

I want to be two again. There are new things to discover and master every.single.day. You are fed on demand, read to, played with on a daily basis by a team of people who hug you constantly, laugh at your every silly stunt, and just find you irresistible. You have no care in the world. Here is my youngest being herself. I may just hop onto bed and jump with her next time.

I spent my afternoon today with these two adorable kiddos. They have the bluest eyes I have ever seen just like their beautiful mama :) This little girl may very well be Justin Beaver’s youngest fan, at the tender age of 1 she already knows his top hit “Baby, baby” and can’t stop jamming to it.

Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Meet my stepdaughter. As teens go, she is a pretty easy one. No storming off into her room, slamming the door, and blasting music when we disagree. The only signs of shady behavior is the silly stuff we do when we get together (yes, me included). We can get pretty giggly, especially when we do a photo session like this.

Her fifteenth birthday is approaching fast so it was time for an update. I have been photographing this girl since she was four, and it amazes me what a great woman she’s growing into. Here’s my lovely, quirky, beautiful stepdaughter.
