Jessica + David are one of those couples who have infectious laughs. One of them smirks, the other giggles; the next thing you know, we’re all laughing. They also have the unusual ability to relax and interact with each other naturally with cameras aimed at them, something we usually have to coach… and this they’ll probably deny. We loved their story: the quintessential families meeting at the club, “Your nephew would LOVE my granddaughter!”, which…

We met Julissa + Rod on the golf courses of PGA National earlier this week. We shoot near golf courses often for weddings, but this was the first time in a while we’d had the pleasure of a couple of hours driving around in carts, looking for pretty spots… what a great afternoon! The weather was perfect; warm, but not too hot, and a refreshing breeze blowing across the links. We were thrilled with how…

We’re so excited for Tina + Angelo’s wedding this fall! We traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for their engagement session last week, and had fun exploring Little Five Points and Piedmont Park with them. It’s always so much fun to leap into the challenge of shooting in a new (to us) location! The colors and textures of Little Five Points were awesome, and Piedmont Park is lovely in April, full of lush greens and the beautiful…

Reyne and her adorable daughter Aubrey joined us in the park in Jupiter for a Mommy+Me session earlier this week. We loved watching both of their faces light up while looking at each other… and wow, doesn’t Reyne look amazing?!

Emily had the pleasure of joining Miles and his parents for a session in the park recently. He’s at such a great age– every activity is filled with wonder, and nothing can make him laugh like Mom and Dad!

We had the pleasure of meeting Angela & Justin at Coral Cove Park on Jupiter Island last weekend.  Steve has been long time friends with Angela’s sister Karen, who gave Angela our Belly & Baby package as a shower gift recently.  We had so much fun scrambling through the ocean water, and thanks to Angela for being so adventurous!  Isn’t this couple just glowing with happiness and excitement?  Angela’s mother joined us for a couple…

Colleen and Jeff joined us for an urban engagement session on Palm Beach Island earlier this week.  The weather was beautiful– and not too hot, which is always a happy surprise this time of year.  We walked around different parts of the island, exploring for interesting backgrounds with pretty evening light and having a fun time chatting about their upcoming wedding.  The happy couple brought their adorable dog, Taylor, with them.  She was so well…

Tiffany & Mike joined us in West Palm Beach for their engagement session on Monday, and we had perfect weather for it!  Tiffany first found us nearly two years ago when we photographed the wedding of one of her friends, and made our day recently by telling us that she has always planned on having us photograph her own wedding some day (so sweet!  Thank you for the compliment!).  We had a great time with…

We met up with Alicia & Ryan for their engagement session at MacArthur State Park on Singer Island… we such a fun time in the beautiful Florida sunshine!  Congrats to a really sweet couple… we can’t wait until your wedding in April!

A Valentine’s Day post about a beautiful couple who are so in love– happy anniversary to Nichole and Jason, and congrats on your upcoming November wedding! We wandered around a park in Jupiter to find some pretty “fall” looking spots… not an easy feat in South Florida! Luckily it was a blustery chilly day, so it definitely felt like fall.  How often can you come home from a shoot here and say you were “cold”?  :-)…

Note from Emily: This session was a bit of a surprise for me!  I headed back to my home state of Vermont to visit with my parents for a few days between Mystic 6 and ImagingUSA, and knew that my trip would overlap my younger sister Monica’s visit by about 12 hours.  Since she was bringing her boyfriend Jake home to meet the family, I was looking forward to both meeting him and doing a…

This is the third of three New York City engagement sessions that Emily shot during her trip to the northeast.  Thanks to everyone for such a fun, welcoming trip! Molly & Gordon are engaged to be married in Lyme, New Hampshire this August.  Emily and Molly have known each other since they were 15 years old, both pining over mean high school boys!  Things have drastically improved in their love lives since then, and it…

This is the first of three New York City engagement sessions that Emily shot during her trip to the northeast… stay tuned for the rest! Emily joined Margot & Jeff in New York City for their engagement session in chilly Central Park earlier this month… and brr, was it cold!  Margot & Jeff are getting married in New Hampshire this fall, and we’re super excited to be able to photograph their wedding.  (It was so…

Baby Jude is such a cutie!  His daddy, Shawn, is a firefighter for Martin County, and he had some really sweet ideas to use his fireman gear with his newborn son.  Chelsea and Shawn are going to be great parents… we had such a fun time with their tiny little boy (at just 13 days old he has such personality!).  Jude was not a fan of being unswaddled for a few photos… but he made…

We had the pleasure of meeting Gina and Tracy’s addition to their family when he was just seven days old!  Isn’t little Vincent adorable?

It’s been a long time since we took baby Sinjin’s portraits, and we got to see him with his parents this week!  The family lives in Boston now, so it’s rare that we get to see them, but we managed to squeeze in a quick family session on the beach on Singer Island.  Sinjin is nearly 2 years old, and he’s such a cutie– and a quick learner, too!

Remember Julie and Nate from their wedding last year?  They’re expecting a baby girl, Kathryn, in just over a month!  We shot their maternity session a few days ago.  Julie looks so beautiful!  Click the link below to see more of our favorites.

We were in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago and got together with Nadine and Brett, who are getting married in October.  We had taken engagement photos of them over a year ago at Coral Cove Park, in Jupiter, Florida, but wanted to do some portraits in their hometown in a location that had some personal significance to them.  We went to the grounds of a fantastic abandoned old home in Atlanta.  We can’t wait…

We joined Lisa, Amy and their beautiful six-month-old daughter Addison at Indian Creek Park in Jupiter for Addison’s 6 month session.  Addison was soooo sleepy but she managed to rally long enough for Emily to take some great shots of her!  What an expressive baby!  Below are some of our favorites… click here to register with Pictage to be notified when the rest of the images are available.

Ryan is the cutest six year old I’ve seen in ages!  We had a great time running around in her backyard– on the swings, in the garden, climbing trees.  It got a little chilly for a sundress, so she changed into a super cute outfit that made her green eyes POP!  This is my favorite kind of session, with beautiful afternoon light and a fun family.  :-)
