Graduation UCF Photography Session

Graduation UCF Photography Session starts with an early morning wake up call, and a jacket because it’s been so chilly out! I’ve been so busy out collecting photographs – I haven’t updated my blog in so long! The good news is, I have some stellar images to share and inspire your next shoot from this Graduation from UCF Photography session, to your next family photo shoot. I have examples out the wa-zoo!

If you’re new to the blog-o-Kate, then you might not know my adoration for early morning light. This Graduation from UCF Photography session is a perfect example of why I love it SO much — that total glow of a morning sunrise session is just hard to beat! When you pair that with a happy family celebrating Ana’s Graduation from UCF with her freaking PHD + Champagne, uh… there just isn’t a better set of photography circumstances out there folks!

This Graduation from UCF Photography Session just totally captured my heart. I mean, not only do I like waking up for sunrise sessions (Seriously, I get as excited about watching the sunrise as people get about new Star Wars movies, BECAUSE I’M A BIG OL’ NERD) — I’m straight up obsessed with Rose Gold. {cue my ever repetitive line, “Dat Rose Gold Doe”} So when I saw the Rose Gold windows on Millican Hall along with the classic brick – OH SNAP. I was not about to let that background go to waste on this cool morning.

We had a good time laughing as we shuffled through the family photos. Graduation UCF Photography Sessions usually start with a few individuals then I have everyone get their time with our star: the Grad! When the whole fam is there to watch you graduate with your HARD EARNED PHD, you take time to get a few frames of everyone together laughing and looking just right. Next up was the Champagne — because CHAMPS DRINK CHAMPS!

I laughed pretty hard at the littlest’s face and reaction the popping the champagne – he was not super excited and a little nervous of how this bottle was going to be opened. It totally cracked me up! But once the cork was popped, everyone was all smiles as they passed their celebratory bottle back and forth on the walk towards the main event: graduation!

Congrats to Ana on all her hard work in earning your PHD from UCF – and thank you for letting me capture your fun a fabulous family!

 

XOXO,
Kate

Champagne Clad Family Photography Session

in Winter Springs Florida 

I’m so excited to share this Champagne Clad Family Photography in Winter Springs! I have been touting the importance of location and styling during family photography sessions for a little bit now, and let me tell you – this family totally NAILED it! Mom told me that she started the idea for how to dress everyone when she purchased a dress for the littlest, then built everyone’s outfit around that – which is one of my pieces of advice in my styling blog. If you want to read that blog check it out HERE. For more on picking a perfect location for your family session, check out this blog. It didn’t hurt that the girls were just totally adorable. I mean as a whole this family just was super cute.

When we picked a location, thanx to some recommendations by my fellow photographers, it just all came together to form this Champagne Clad Family Photography Session! Everyone was sparkly and the lighting was just right for this family of 5. Plus after having my last few sessions be with boys, it was fun to get my girly on with these three princesses! They loved spinning and holding hands and hugging – no problem. I forgot how easy girls are to get to look pretty in a photo versus boys! I just totally adore how their session came out. Plus because of the neutral colors the photos will go with almost any house hold! Making them a great thing to print out and put up on a wall.

Because of all the perfect champagne colors, it’s making me crave a little bit of the bubbly… I might just have to toast this Champagne Clad Clan and their photography session. I mean, it is Wednesday – so why not?

Family Photography Downtown Orlando’s Leu Gardens

Location, Location, Location! When Shonnie approached me to do family photos and mentioned Leu Gardens, I was so excited! I just love to photograph there – especially with the weather being what it is right now! We met up on a Sunday afternoon and took our time as we strolled through the gardens. The kids had fun running around and checking out all the different plants and they were absolute angels when it came to photos! I just loved all the funny faces and postures I got to see while editing their images. It cracked me up, and their personality really came through. This family has photography down to a science for sure! It makes such a big difference in the images to have a stellar location like Leu Gardens, and a family that just really enjoys each other. I know towards the end the boys were started to get tired of smiling pretty, but they both still had enough energy to come sprinting toward me and my camera – which is always a fun thing to do with kids. I so enjoyed my time with the Torres family, and I think we got some really great images in our time together. By the end they were all great subjects and I just loved their little family dynamic. The youngest had me giggling with all his funny faces and every once in a while he’d throw his arms up in a fit of joy. I mean, if being at Leu Gardens in Downtown Orlando with a cute Family for photography didn’t make me this happy — I wouldn’t be doing it!

XO,

Kate

Family Photography at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

This is one of those sessions that just had the perfect touch of Disney magic! As a photographer I have a few tricks up my sleeve for family photography magic, but there is nothing like that Disney touch – and we absolutely found some during this Family Photography Session at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. From totally perfect weather, to some perfectly timed skywriting, I just couldn’t of asked for better circumstances! These little ones were shy at first, but as soon as we all sat down in the grass, they totally opened up to the idea of having my camera on them! Plus, Mom and Dad promised ice cream – which always helps!

We had fun tromping around the Disney grounds, and bounced between the lovely beach club and yacht club properties. We originally had planned to jump on the free water shuttle to go to the boardwalk but had so much fun running in the grass and playing at the hotel property that everyone was completely out of energy by the end of the session. Mom and Dad were all laughs while the little ones engaged in all kinds of shenannigans – from nose picking to funny faces, this was  really fun one to edit! The girls had me laughing as I looked through our time together, from the moments they didn’t like me to everyone cuddling together on a bench.

I just love seeing a family come together to make some real memories together in the most magical place on earth! I’m so lucky to live right down the road from this happy place where families can vacation and come together and I look forward to shooting there more often!

Best,
Kate

Front Yard Family Photography Orlando, Florida

When I started this shoot, I am ashamed to say I had accidentally double booked for the same day – which worked out in everyone’s favor because we rescheduled and ended up shooting on the first cold snap of the season. The morning was absolutely perfect for a family shoot. When I arrived we decided to just shoot in their perfect front yard which was a total dream! They literally have a white picket all the way around the yard. A little word of advice when booking your family photography shoot, especially when you have a toddler, patience is KEY! This family did an amazing job of just being patient with their little 2 year old rather then getting upset when she didn’t want to sit still – and the result was some really great and natural images! Candids help to show off their personality, and getting upset with them only makes them more upset. So take my advice, and just take a seat in you Front Yard and wait for the Family Photography magic to happen! We all had a great time together playing on the swings, but the real magic started to happen when Dad pulled out his guitar. Everyone lit up and it was total magic – the sun was out and even the dog got excited. I think this might be one of my new tricks for when I’m photographing toddlers, because asking a toddler to sit still is like asking politicians for world peace.

I love all the funny faces we got out of everyone while we played in the front yard. Everyone was incredibly relaxed which made me just want to continue shooting. A perfect morning with a happy family is why I love this job so much — not to mention we got some really great images out of our time together. I can’t wait to see how this little family grows!

XO,

Kate
