Fall Mini Sessions in Orlando Florida with set built, styled and designed by Kate Mclean Photography.

Fall is here – which means in Florida we dye our hair dark, throw on some boots, grab a pumpkin-spice-whatever and start pretending the season has changed! Our lush green tropical landscapes and mild temperatures means leaves don’t change, but the spirit of fall is never far from our hearts. The difference between summer and fall here in the sunshine state may only be a few degrees, but we welcome it with open arms and all the outdoor activities we can cram in – including Fall Mini Sessions in Orlando, Florida.

In the spirit of Florida fall, I leaned all the way in and designed a little set for Seasonal Mini Sessions. From staining and building the Pumpkin stand (Power tools are ridiculously fun by the way!) to styling the color palette and hand making the tassels – it’s all custom built and put together to create the perfect look for Fall – idea for your holiday cards & gifts for the holiday season!

This little set is ideal for young kids and pets – and if you really want to ramp up the holiday look, throw in a costume or two! The set will be available through the Fall Season, all you have to do is request it!

And if you love this look – I will be doing a whole Mini session series this year with sets just like this one for Winter & New Years! I can’t wait for the New Years look – it’ll be an excuse to wear your black tie wardrobe and throw all the glitter around! So fun!

If you’re interested in booking you can click the contact form above and just mention that you’re interested in the Fall Mini Session in Orlando Florida. I have a style guide specifically for the event that is included in your quote and I would love to help you get an adorable card for the holidays.

Family Photography in Celebration, Florida by Kate Mclean Photography

Celebration, Florida is an ideal place for your family photography session especially if you’re vacationing here in the lovely Orlando Florida. This family proved that with this stylish and fun shoot which took place near the end of the day in Downtown Celebration.

Our shoot was relaxed and we were able to utilize everything from the park surrounding a lake to the treelined streets and beautiful brightly colored walls. This location is one of my favorites as it is close to many Orlando Resorts and has close by free parking, shopping, restaurants and is relatively private for most of the shoot. Family Photography in Celebration Florida always has everyone excited to spend time in the beautifully curated area that is only a little ways from the resorts of Disney area of Orlando.

If you’re looking for an ideal location in Orlando for a family photoshoot, Celebration is always on my list of suggestions. I’ve had many great shoots there, and this one is no exception to the rule!

One of the best parts of doing family photos in Celebration, Florida is the room to run! I love letting kids be unrestrained, and the locations provides plenty of room to safely roam free. This makes sure I get those genuine facial expressions that are central to my photography style.

When I give examples for this location to my clients they nearly always pick it for a number of reasons: It’s not a far drive, they can plan other activities while in the location, and the images that result from Family Photography in Celebration Florida are stunning!

If you’re interested in booking a shoot in Celebration with me, I suggest you do so soon! My books are filling up quickly with the coming season and to really utilize this location I always suggest a full hour long session. This location is great in both AM and PM slots on my schedule and with the weather change the PM slot is especially sought after.

XO,
Kate

Tropical Inspired Family Photoshoot at Margaritaville Resort Orlando

This Tropical Inspired Family Photoshoot at Margaritaville Resort Orlando is summer perfection! While so many people are gearing up for the holiday season, here in Florida it’s endless summer vibes. Margaritaville Resort is a new property here in Orlando, and it’s nothing short of Florida perfection. Brightly colored bungalows transport you straight to the Florida Keys and double as the perfect tropical backdrop for individual family images.

The massive and welcoming entry way is home to a giant flip flop and dreamy white stairs adorned with tropical knick knacks that have a clean and classy look. The best part about these pretty stairs is the natural lighting and it provides a great spot for families to take a seat together in a flattering way. This family not only dressed about as perfectly as you possibly could – they were cuddly and fun throughout the whole shoot!

Their casual Tropical Inspired Family Photoshoot has topped the list of my favorites for a while now! The girls were more then happy to play fashion model for me infront of the Tropical Inspired colors of the buildings in the resort while Mom and Dad just sat back and laughed at their antics.

If you’re from or vacationing here in Central Florida there is no better place to find tropical vibes then Margaritaville Resort Orlando. While bits of the property are still under construction – the parts that are finished are immaculately curated to the perfect Tropical Vibes. The location also provides the perfect spot for a relaxed and casual staycation here in town – so even if you’re a local, we can still do some fantastic photos during your little vacation.

XOXO,

Kate

EO Inn: Micro Wedding in Downtown Orlando, a Styled Shoot

This styled shoot of a micro wedding in Downtown Orlando at the EO Inn was so fun to photograph. For many years I’ve been asked the question “Where do we host a small wedding in Downtown Orlando?” and I can now definitively say: The EO Inn. The hidden gem that is the EO Inn is not only steps away for Lake Eola Park, it faces the ceremony site in the park which is overlooked by an oak tree and the best view of Orlando’s skyline.

From kitsch to classic, the EO Inn is packing some serious versatility. The freshly updated common areas are bright and a perfect spot to share a champagne with your sweetie – while the exterior of the building boasts classic arches that exude old Florida charm. The EO Inn’s location and updates make it the obvious choice for people looking to have a micro wedding that doesn’t skimp on style.

As a downtown native, I have spent many years walking past the EO Inn and admiring the large white arches tucked along the southern facing wall thinking they’d be perfect for photos – and as it turns out it’s not the only thing that is perfect. Bridging the gap between the Thorton Park district and Lake Eola Park, the EO Inn sits in the heart of Orlando local’s territory.

If you’re looking to elope or have your own micro wedding, EO Inn in Downtown Orlando is the best venue to do it. This Orlando gem is hiding in plain site and has now been polished to a brilliant shine.

If you’re out and about for Downtown’s infamous Wine Walk – swing by to check out the new EO Inn as well!

Special thanks to all our amazing vendors who helped make this shoot possible, as well as our models!

Hilton Grand Vacation Sea World Family Photography

I recently got to shoot this lovely Family Photography session at Hilton Grand Vacation Sea World in Orlando, Florida. I love getting to go to all the beautiful properties tucked away throughout the City Beautiful – and the Hilton Grand Vacation Sea World is one of my new favorites! This family took my advice and did the shoot early in the morning (8:30 AM) to avoid the rain and heat. In addition to avoiding the rainy Florida weather, I find that early shoots have the added bonus of happy kids! I am not sure why, but kids tend to be less cranky and more energized in the early morning, so not only did I have an awesome location to work with – I also had two happy and playful boys who bounced around in the sunshine during our shoot together.

If you read my blog frequently – or any of my social media – you may know I have a love for peach walls during photoshoots. Hilton Grand Vacation Sea World Family Photography was awesome because it had the greatest peach walls! I just think the peachy color makes all skin tones pop and adds a touch of happy Florida color to shoots – so when I pulled up to The Hilton Grand Vacation Sea World and saw all the peachy walls I was totally sold! After I did some quick and easy location scouting, I was happy to see that we wouldn’t have to trek far at all to get a few different and unique backdrops. And in addition, they had a great little outdoor patio set that would be perfect for everyone to sit down on. I like to have clients sit for a few frames, just to offer a different kind of interaction among them during the shoot. This works out especially well when little kids are at the shoot and they can all sit on Mom and Dad’s lap!

All-in-All I just love how this shoot turned out. It’s a perfect Florida lifestyle vibe, was easy for my clients (as they were staying at the Hilton Grand Vacation Seaworld) and we captured some really authentic moments together.

Cheers!

Kate
