Southampton Family Photography :: Beach Session

creative family lifestyle portraits

How many families do you know that want to have their water fight photographed after they take their “nice” photos? I had such a blast with this super photogenic and lovely family. Kelly and I have been meeting on Monday morning for the past few months, for what I like to call “punishing Ashley.” She’s a personal trainer and an amazing inspiration. I always leave our sessions feeling uplifted and with a new appreciation for my body. I just wish she could count better 😉 I loved getting to meet her fiance, Phil, and their combined families. Each of the 4 kids has something a little different to bring to the table in terms of personality and quirkiness. It’s definitely a full house, but I don’t think they’re hating it too much.

These girls were not shy.

If you’re a bride trying to get in shape for the big day, or you just need someone to push you a bit harder than you push yourself (who doesn’t need that?), I can’t say enough awesome things about Kelly. Visit her website for more information.

Summertime :: On Film
It's been a week since we got back from our holiday in England. My husband was away from home for 2 months. I took these photos before he left. We had such a lovely time in England, which is a separate post completely, but part of me was really looking forward to getting back home, to our home.Tea on our porch.Constant smell of sunscreen.Sipping cold beers on the boat.Playing in the sand.Thinking there isn't enough wind to sail, but going anyways.This is what summer looks like in our home in Florida. And although the heat and humidity are intense, somehow we find ways to enjoy it all.Zoë :: Double Exposure...
New Forest Family Photography :: Louise + Nathan + Jocelyn
 This sweet family happens to our neighbours and friends. We are often given fresh eggs from their chickens. Little Jocelyn was born about 3 weeks before Cavanaugh, and Louise and I have spent many days commiserating celebrating as we navigate new motherhood together. It's so much easier with friends (and lots of coffee and cake). Being right in the forest is a photographer's dream, there is an endless choice of whimsical places. These images were taken in the field behind Louise and Nathan's house, and their fairytale back garden.
