A Mother’s Love….. Lake City, FL Family Portrait Photographer

Back in July I met up with this wonderful mother of 2 gorgeous girls for her FIRST EVER professional portrait session. Every time I hear people say, “I’ve never had professional portraits done” I am so happy they decided to do it for their family & honored they chose me to capture this moment in time.

I LOVED the outfits she chose, how she kept her girls outfits to fit their personalities & just how much fun we had. And as a bonus the rain waited till we were done!

Thank you so much Shultz family!

Till Next time, Melody

Earlier this month I met with some wonderful clients for an Urban family session….all planned around something different then their sessions in the past & my burgundy couch. 😉  We decided on downtown for a fun session with many different background options.

I LOVED the colors they picked (as I do love color) to style in. Especially with the setting, it worked perfectly. The girls did amazing…especially as this was my 3rd time photographing the youngest member of the family & the first time where we didn’t have to work too hard for smiles from her. All the girls are so gorgeous in this family…lucky daddy right? 😉

Thank you so much Bay Family for letting me capture your family again!

“Magic Mirror on the Wall, who’s the Fairest of them all…” Child Portraits in Lake City, FL | Lake City, Fl Child Portrait Photographer

Early in December I had the opportunity to do a themed session. I LOVE themed sessions…..using my imagination to figure out props, locations, ideas…….they are just pure fun. When her mom called & said her birthday was “Snow White” themed I was SUPER excited. I decided to go simple. Choose a location that could be the woods Snow White lived, brought some apples, a basket & an adorable girl who perfectly fit the role.

I love who this session turned out. Thank you so much to the Brim family for letting me capture your little princess for her birthday!  To find out about scheduling YOUR themed session head to the Melody Coarsey Photography website!
