Fall Mini Sessions Day One in Jupiter, FL

Our 2018 Fall Family Mini Session kickoff day was a success!

We photographed seven beautiful families at one of our favorite locations; Dubois Park, in Jupiter! We enjoyed the inlet side and a view of the Jupiter Lighthouse in the horizon. The weather was cool, breezy and cloudy but made for some great light! Everyone was happy and we captured so many smiling faces and precious moments! Check out a few sneak peeks from each session below :-)

What to Wear for Your Mini Session

Many clients ask me for advice on what to wear for their mini sessions?

I always recommend coordinating 3-4 colors. I Iove all of the colors that this family decided to go with for their session (see below)! They coordinated pink, blue (light blue & navy blue), white & gray and it went well against the yellow house, wooden steps and green background. Always keep in mind your location and then coordinate some of your favorite colors (that match the style or theme of the location), don’t forget to add in the accessories ;-) I love when Mama’s and daughter’s wear dresses too! Layering clothing also looks great!

My logic is: you are getting professional photos done … do it up … get pretty, accessorize (earrings, bracelets, hair accessories for girls, hats, vests, jackets), do your hair and makeup … I will make sure we have fun and capture your best version of you and your family!

I have a website that I recommend for help with styling & outfit coordination:

Family Photography in Jupiter

Fall family photography is in full swing over here! Some families opt to capture their “children only” for their annual family portrait session! This can be a good option, as long as they’ve done the entire family in previous years ;-)

In this particular case, I have captured this sweet family for the past five years! I’ve captured their maternity, newborn, girls and family sessions multiple times. There is something so sweet about getting to photograph families and children as they grow older. These babies turn into toddlers who turn into kids and then teens … in the blink of an eye Mamas! I know how fast it goes by because my once little boy who used to snuggle in my lap is now 16-years-old and thinking about college and a career as a doctor!

So capturing images is more than just a “job” that I do. It is something I am passionate about … capturing the beauty and magic of childhood and family life, freezing the moments of laughter and pure joy so that when you look back at these times, you can smile and truly feel the memories as if they were only yesterday.

After sessions, my husband always asks, “so how did it go” and I usually can’t help but to smile and feel overwhelmed with gratitude as though my heart will come out of my chest because the fact is that I love what I do and it is such a gift to be able to do what you love and share it with people who will treasure it for years to come. <3
