We anticipated showers, grey ominous cloudy skies and the high possibility of yet another session rescheduled. When living in Florida and arranging shoots in the spring or summer months the inevitable daily rains with their billowing trees cause even all of your backup plans from proceeding as normal. Preparations for these unexpected interruptions are not easy, however our sunshine state is also notorious for grand and beautiful clearings minutes after storms relocate and for that we are grateful.

The McAuley’s have been the epitome of flexible this year with rainstorms greeting their session dates time and again. While alternative indoor ‘game plans’ were always considered, often times our summer showers generously blanket vast areas in such abysmal darkness that natural ambient light is deficient inside.

All things considered, plus a day of anxious weather report scrutiny, we disregarded the ‘wet’ hearsays and anticipated passing sprinkles with enough time to capture everything this beautiful family desired. For when the clouds brew, equip yourself with shielding umbrellas, travel lightly and pack a mighty positive attitude. And while the grasses were damp, the air moist and the layer of humidity stifling we were greeted with the sunniest of faces!

We have been photographing this lovely family since Colin was a wee babe (here and here), but our charismatic little buddy, now ever more vocal, brought along his baby sister and what an exciting introduction that was for us! During the entirety of our session, little miss C’s sparkling blue eyes intensely focused on examining her surroundings and our strange new faces. There was something so precious about her matter-of-fact personality and boy did she force us to work hard for her smiles!

Our short time spent capturing this wonderful family is always so enjoyable, as their laid-back personalities really allow us to celebrate their bond and sweet moments as a newly composed team of four. Documenting their comfort together really inspires you and then as if with the turn of a switch their perfect, camera-ready smiles just grab you!

Understand that every family’s “perfect photo” is unlike the family before and always uniquely crafted. Rain or shine, our approach may always be similar nevertheless it is the charisma and beaming personalities of our incredible clients that direct how a session will conclude.

This coordinated foursome, proven time and again, has mastered just how to keep on the sunny side of things with their ever brilliant adoration, composure and talent to work our cameras! Clouds may bend, darken and break but you’ll have to walk on by storms because luckily we know the grass is always greener

Oh how time does seem to zip right past us. It has been about a year and a half since we last saw this beautiful family. Little Colin was only crawling at that time. Fast forward — and boy has he grown! He was just as sweet as the day we first met him, a […]

 

Oh how time does seem to zip right past us. It has been about a year and a half since we last saw this beautiful family. Little Colin was only crawling at that time. Fast forward — and boy has he grown! He was just as sweet as the day we first met him, a little shy but he quickly emerged from his shell. And not only has he turned into a handsome young man, but there is a little “Miss C” on the way to join this lovely family.

Although the season of fall was upon us, the temperature was still quite warm and the trees still exuded their lush green boughs. We first gathered underneath the enormous Banyan tree that shaded a small meadow which harbored many a picnic at the park. Colin was a bit timid and was not entirely sure who we were or what Mom and Dad had signed him up for. A few swings in the air and a shoulder ride from Pops lightened the mood and put him in a decidedly cheerful frame of mind. He started talking and walking around, politely asking if he could play on the swing set…such a gentleman.

Big Brother! YES!

The family brought these oh-so-tiny embellishments that they planned to adorn little Chloe with. Her tiny shoes with the protective father and big brother in the background simply melts my heart.


My dearest little sister, whom I adore…
God blessed me with you, forevermore.

Side by side, we will always be…
Through tears and heartache, I will never leave.

Through life’s trials we will work them out together…
What I am trying to say is I will love you forever.

We simply love our dads! Dads are the ones we wrestle with, tumble with, play with, run around and fall with. They inspire us to grow big and strong and in rare quiet moments, they teach us about right and wrong.

Miss Katie, you are glowing; such a gorgeous mommy-to-be. The colors and the wind played their parts beautifully that day.

Thank you so much for allowing us to capture this special time in your lives. We love watching you go from a family of 3 to a family of 4. These sweet memories will stay close to our hearts, but we absolutely cannot wait to meet Miss Chloe. Countdown til summer 2014…!
