family portraits

Our beautiful and awesome friends (oh right, they’re also clients!) Cheryl + Derek are bringing a new life into their home and the world… and we can’t wait to meet her. We found a secluded beach for some celebratory portraits, and Cheryl was her usual gorgeous self, rocking her new status as momma, while Derek’s antics cracked us all up. (Yes, you’re gorgeous too, Derek.) Thanks to these sweet people for trusting us to document…

Megan, Glen, and Gabby. These three have been in our lives for a few years now, and every time we see them we’re left smiling and content. Watching Gabby grow from a toddling baby to a cute little girl has been a pretty magical experience; in this past year alone we’ve seen her develop from a shy flower girl at Megan + Glen’s wedding into this friendly and outgoing kiddo. (And every time she says our…

Several years ago we did portraits with Mary and her daughters as a gift for her husband; now there’s a granddaughter to photograph too. (Isn’t Delia adorable? She has her momma Kim’s sassy attitude, but don’t let on that you find her funny…) We went to a local park to take advantage of the Floridian wilderness during the holidays; check out our favorites from their mini-session below.

Our 4th of July holiday weekend kicked off with Mai-Vi + Paul’s intimate wedding in Boca Raton on July 3rd. We were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of the small group of relatives and close friends, and felt immediately welcome. Mai-Vi started her day by going on a “fun run” with her girls (“just ten miles”– wow!), and then settled into her air conditioned suite at the Boca Raton Resort + Club to get ready.…

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms we know and love out there, and especially to my mom, Evelyn, who’s at home in chilly Vermont today. (Wish you were here!) A quick look back to two of my favorite photos of Momma with her girls (from November of 2012, with photos by my oh-so-talented husband, Steve). –xoxo Em

Reyne + Mark joined us with their daughter Aubrey for some casual family portraits in the park this fall. We love family portrait sessions like this; we can just imagine Aubrey growing older and looking back on these images, amazed at how small she looks in her daddy’s arms, at her glowing natural curls and hesitant smile, at the love radiating from the three of them. Family portraits do more than show what people look like…

Every time we photograph Miss Kylar Rose we are reminded of how time must be speeding up; she’s turning into a young lady so quickly. (See her 3 Year Session and 2 Year Session) We love the many faces of Kylar Rose, but especially the way she can stare straight through you. Not only will she be a beautiful woman when she grows up, but she’s already showing signs of strength and independence, just like…

We are so happy to help Katie + John welcome baby Chase to the world! Em was in New England around the time of Katie’s due date, so Steve arranged to tackle his first solo newborn session. (Em thinks he did a great job!) He was happy to report that Chase was cooperative and very sweet, and as always, spending time with Katie + John was a heartwarming and happy experience. We count ourselves so…

We’re coming up on Terra + Scott’s third anniversary, and we’re finally meeting baby Georgia! Terra and Georgia met with Emily for a mini session with Terra’s sister Taylor, their parents (Terri + Tom), and grandparents (Bert + Emma) in the park. The weather was gorgeous, and Georgia is quite the little peach! (Have you ever seen eyes like that?? They are NOT Photoshopped!) We’re so happy to see this family grow, and can’t wait…

It feels like time is set to “fast forward”, especially when we start seeing the babies we were photographing [what seems like] yesterday growing up, talking, running, playing. Kylar Rose and her family are very special to us, and it’s such a treat to see her growing into a young lady. We’re calling this Kylar’s 3 year session, though she’s almost 3 1/2… scheduling can sure get complicated when we travel so much! (Check out…

Jackie + Corey were among Emily’s first Florida clients when they got married in 2007. Since then they have been hoping and wishing for a baby to add to their family; and Liam has finally arrived! It’s the sweetest thing in the world to see two parents so incredibly happy. Click below to see a few of our favorites and click here to register to be notified when the rest of the images are in…

We are always so thrilled to see our clients’ lives together develop beyond the wedding day; while we all tend to see most of the day to day changes of our friends through Facebook and emails, there’s something really satisfying about seeing someone in person after a long time apart. This was absolutely the case with Molly and Gordon, who we joined for an anniversary session about a year after their wedding last August (actually,…

Welcome to the world, Oliver! Emily went to see him in his home (with proud parents Liz and Rich) when he was just five days old. What a perfectly behaved young man! Click below for a few of our favorites and click here to register for Oliver’s full gallery.

We waited until Christmas Day to post these pictures because up until today they were a secret– from Kim & Jill’s dad! The ladies of the family wanted to give their dad a gift of beautiful portraits, so Emily snuck over to their home in Jupiter while he was still at work. We think all three girls look GREAT… and we’re sure dad will think so too! Click below to see more of our faves.…
