Once again we headed out to the cutest tree farm in town, Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest. It’s located out in Sorrento which sounds far but I promise it’s not! This was my third year at the farm and it was another great day! Weather was perfection, and for Florida in November that’s not always promised. If you have a chance during the holidays this is a must see, must do stop on the schedule of fun holiday activities in the Orlando area.

I had such an amazing end to 2016. I decided to do one big blog post (or maybe two or three) and acknowledge and share all of these beautiful families that stepped in front of my camera for the holiday season. You might see some familiar faces and even some new ones. It’s such a great time of year for a photographer. Well I mean great if you like being crazy busy, managing a busy schedule where weather and life gets in the way sometimes forcing you to reschedule an already packed schedule, taking countless photos, editing said photos until your crosseyed, and basically missing out on every weekend event for two months straight.. I mean that’s great right? HAHA I kid of course! It’s great because I get to see my loyal clients and watch their families grow and change and I always get to meet new families that I hope will join the ARP Family!

I apologize that this post comes two months into 2017, but let’s face it, I don’t blog. I mean I do blog I just don’t blog enough. It’s just one of those things that I find myself thinking about but when I actually sit down to do it, something always comes up and this part gets put to the side. I’m not going to tell you I’ll do better because that would be a lie. I’ll just tell you that I’ll blog when I’m good and ready lol!

HUGE thanks to all of my families that came out for Holiday sessions in 2016. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did! See you all soon! (don’t laugh, I mean it when I say soon because if you blink, it will be September already!!)

Everytime I have a senior session I end up wishing I had more! These are such fun sessions especially when the special graduate brings props and momentos to incorporate into their session. This awesome lady is graduating from Lake Howell in a few weeks and it was such a pleasure to meet her. Isa was very active in sports as you can see in the photos and she will be heading out to the Univeristy of Central Florida in the fall. I know her entire family is so proud of her. Congrats to this special graduate!

A few months ago I made the decision to take a little sebatical from newborn photography. It was not an easy decision but one that I felt that needed to be made for me and my business. Luckily I still get to snap a few beautiful mamas to be and their growing bellies as they prepare to meet their new little ones.

I met this sweet couple a few months ago, and word is they have met their baby boy recently and I couldn’t be happier for a more deserving couple. Mom is obviously amazing already, but as a local firefighter as well she’s officially a rock star!

Yes I know we just celebrated Easter and yes I know these are actually Christmas photos that I’m blogging. Please try not to judge me…..blogging is just what it the word says….”blogging” as in getting so “blogged” down with sessions that you need to blog. Ok I might of made up the word blogged but I like it!

So now to the beautiful Santa’s Tree Farm we go all the way back to November of 2015. This is hands down my favorite spot for holiday photos. The farm is just the perfect setting and the staff could not be better. They are so accomidating to the local photography community and I know we are all grateful for their hospitality each year. It’s a client favorite and I’ll be going back next year for sure!
