Quinn at the Christmas Tree Farm I Holiday Mini Session

Quinn came out to the Christmas tree farm to meet me for a mini session too.  I love seeing her grow before the camera.  I have been lucky to take her pictures 3 times this year.  Her pajamas were too cute!  She needed a little while to warm up this time so we got some family shots in while she remembered who I was.  Web_Cohen_22-22 Web_Cohen_21-21 Web_Cohen_20-20 Web_Cohen_14-14 Web_Cohen_9-9 Web_Cohen_10-10 Web_Cohen_16-16 Web_Cohen_11-11 Web_Cohen_12-12 Web_Cohen_13-13 Web_Cohen_5-5

Mia and Lily I Christmas Mini Session At The Tree Farm

I think it is time to spice up the blog with some Christmas sessions!  I was so excited to have an afternoon of mini sessions at the Christmas tree farm this year.  I couldn’t wait to set up a styled mini session afternoon at the tree farm.  It was so much fun!  All of the children especially loved the milk and cookies.  I love how the sessions came out.  Here is Mia and Lily’s and a few of my favorites from their mini session.  These girls are just so cute!

The fabulous hair accessories are by Birdie Baby Boutique on Etsy and the Silent Night Wood sign is by Go Jump in the Lake on Etsy.

The Campbell Family I Winter Park Family Photographer

I am sorry the blog has been quiet lately, but it has been a super busy few weeks.  Nothing could have prepared me for how busy I would be with sessions this season.  Not complaining, just trying to get caught up!  Here are a few from my session with the Campbell family a few weeks ago.  It was a pretty chilly morning in Winter Park, but Caleb and Harper did fantastic!

My Little Red Riding Hood

Sophia has middle child syndrome right now.  For real, it is a tad silly.  She is not starving for attention at all I promise.  However, I decided to give her a post of her own this time.  This year for Halloween I wanted to stick to a woodland theme.  I have seen a few pictures of Red Riding Hood that sparked my interest and I went from there.  Tallulah’s favorite animal right now is the owl…..perfect.  Liv was a hard sell.  She wanted to be a witch or vampire, but since Tallulah is just 18 months and it is her first real Halloween I did not want anything to scare her.  So after much convincing Olivia agreed to be a woodland fairy, thank goodness.  I got my mom on board and we set out for many trips to Hobby Lobby, JoAnnes, and Michaels.  I love making their costumes and I even get the girls involved.  It means so much more to them than just heading to a scary Halloween store and buying a flimsy costume.

So here is Sophia, the middle child, in her fabulous costume!

At The Pumpkin Patch With Karoline and Karter

I had such a great time capturing memories at the pumpkin patch this year.  I am so grateful for the families that chose to come out and share in the fun!  A great time was had by all and I can’t wait to do it again next year.  Karoline and Karter met me at the pumpkin patch too and proved that even “big” kids can have a little fun with the pumpkins too.  Here are some of my favorite to share.

Christmas Tree Mini Sessions

I had to change the date to the next day Sunday.  I updated the information below!

I am opening an afternoon on Sunday November 25th for Christmas Mini Sessions at the tree farm.  This will be a styled mini session with the theme “The Night Before Christmas”.  A picnic in the Christmas trees with milk and cookies!  It would even be fun to have your little loves in their Christmas pajamas.  Contact me at taramerklerphotography@gmail.com for available times.  This location even has a ton of more fun that can be had by the family once you are done with your pictures with hayrides, bounce pillows, and a petting zoo.  My family really enjoys this farm and I am sure it will become a family tradition for you as well!
