Connor and Bella are next in line with a look into their session at the Christmas Tree Farm.  I love that they came out in their matching pajamas ready for milk and cookies in the Christmas trees.  All of the kids loved the milk and cookies so much.  The only hard thing was to hold them off from eating them long enough to get some pictures before in!  I really need to get my own girls out there sometime this week for their pictures.

Here are some of my faves from Connor and Bella’s session.

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!

I had a great mini session with the Booth family!  They were so much fun and we managed to keep Sophie happy the whole time.  That was quite an accomplishment.  It was so good to catch up with this wonderful family.  Here are a few of my favorites from their session last weekend.

A Holiday Mini Session With the Tisdell Family

November is here already and it is going to be a busy one. I am a very happy girl about that too! For me November means a steady stream of families ready to take their holiday portraits. I am honored to be able to capture so many memories this year for my clients. I have met so many wonderful families this year and am excited to meet some more in the next few weeks.

One of my first Holiday mini sessions this season was with the Tisdell family. It was so much fun to see how much Cruz and Aria have grown over the last few months. Here are a few of my faves.

Olivia the Woodland Fairy

Olivia was a woodland fairy for Halloween this year.  Unfortunately she came down with a fever on the night before Halloween.  She rested up and insisted on celebrating with everyone.  We promised she would be able to trick or treat no matter what.  We brought the wagon and she got to ride along to trick or treat with front door service a la daddy.  She even wanted to get pictures in her hand made costume and crown.

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!

Pumpkin Minis – Rebecca and Devon At The Patch

Just finished up Rebecca and Devon’s pictures from their pumpkin patch mini session.  They are both so adorable and had  a great time at the pumpkin patch.  Mom and Dad even joined in and we got some fun family shots too.  I love capturing the interaction between a family.  Here are my favorites from last Friday.

Pumpkin Minis – Madeline at the Pumpkin Patch

This is the first of a few pumpkin patch blogs that I will be sharing over the next few days.  It was absolutely perfect weather for a day of pumpkin patch pictures!  Well at least for Central Florida that is.  It didn’t rain spontaneously and it was low humidity so I call that a win for mid-October!  It also didn’t make it miserable for the kids to be dressed up in their fall colored outfits which typically include long sleeves or jeans.  I must say that all of the kids looked absolutely adorable in their pumpkin patch outfits too!

Madeline was too cute in her outfit and she had fun checking out the pumpkins.  Here are a few of my favorites from her mini session.

Holiday Mini Sessions

I am excited to now announce my November Holiday mini sessions.  I have dedicated two Saturday afternoons in November for mini sessions.  These sessions will come with 10 edited images on a CD.  I have made the sessions early in November so that you can get your holiday cards ready to send out for December.  I am also starting to book my full sessions in November now too.  Spots are filling up fast for October and November so contact me soon to book your family’s portraits for the holiday season.  I will work with you individually to pick a location perfect for your family portraits.  I will only be booking through the end of November so that I can spend the month of December enjoying every minute of holiday magic with my girls and family.
