Fall Mini Sessions Day Four in Jupiter, FL

Our fourth and final mini session event is done!

Our final six families were captured for final Fall mini sessions of 2018! Due to popular demand we opened up one more mini session event and headed back to Dubois Park in Jupiter! A beautiful scene of the Jupiter Lighthouse, the inlet, rocks, grass, sand & a bridge all make this spot a gem! The weather was warm, sunny and windy by the water! Even though we fought the wind, everyone had a great time, while I did my thing and captured them :-) ! Check out a few sneak peeks from each session below :-)

Elegant and Adventurous Family Photo Session in Delray Beach, FL

I had the privilege of capturing this beautiful family’s annual photo session at the Delray Oaks Natural Area.

We have managed to capture amazing and adventurous sessions at some of South Florida’s most beautiful locations for the past seven years; for instance, Delray’s Japanese Gardens, Miami’s Wynwood with a broken leg, the Boca Resort & beach, Jupiter’s Historic Riverbend Park and Jupiter’s Lighthouse to name a few! Many of these locations now require a photography permit to photograph there. Every single year brought on a new look, a new location and another marveolus experience.

How To a Achieve a Successful & Adventurous Session:

  • Be spontaneous, adventurous and willing to travel

  • Contact your photographer many months in advance so you can schedule the session & have ample time to formulate a plan (location, wardrobe, ideas, etc.)

  • Schedule a regular 60-90 minute session because time is needed to cover ground

  • Communicate your ideas and vision in advance

  • Arrive at your session ready for an adventure but at the same time ready to capture natural & precious moments … you have to be yourself!

  • Be willing to take direction and trust the process, when you relax and give up control on what you think your kids should be doing at a photo session … only then can you relax and enjoy yourself and let the photographer do her job :-)

For the session below, I captured this family at a completely new to me location! We explored our surroundings on the nature walk and randomly stopped to capture photos, look at plants, examine berries, and the entire family even climbed a tree (in heels) to capture the adventure. Check it out 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
