I’m so excited to share a handful of my “Neverland” WDW family portrait sessions from earlier this month! These sessions have quickly become my favorite to photograph, walking around the park with sweet friends capturing all of the things their family loves best about this special place… does it get better than that?!  all of the holiday decor around the park was SO gorgeous! definitely my favorite time of year at the magic kingdom! one of my favorites from their session!! Casey’s Corner has so much special meaning for Jessica and her family, and I love that we were able to work it into their session so much :)
thanks again for letting me join you for the morning! :) have a magical day!

“you are the one on the top of my wish list
after all, it’s a holiday made for two”
– dave barnes when Carissa first emailed me about doing some “first married christmas” photos and what she was envisioning, I was hooked! lights, lights, and more of those gorgeous warm christmas lights! I knew Reston town center would be the perfect spot to get that holiday vibe with tons of lights, and thankfully they were up for an early morning session so we had the place all to ourselves! I’m so excited with how these turned out! happy viewing, friends!  come to find out, they even met at Clydes! even more perfect!
