“…what words could you use which would give another the experience of sunshine?” – lois lowry These two are another couple where I’ve had the privilege to photograph each season of their family, from engagement, their wedding, the baby’s first year package for their sweet Gabby girl, and now for baby brother!

This session has been YEARS in the making, and I’m so glad we were finally able to make it happen! I’ve been photographing their family since before Bella was born, and I know they’ve been counting down until we could do one of these MK sessions in their happy place! It was so fun to watch Bella fall in love with the same place her parents got engaged! They were my ONE session out of 6 that week that lucked out with those perfectly overcast skies I always pray for for these WDW sessions, so we were able to use a few spots I usually have to avoid because of the intense Florida sunshine, such as the wishing well (where they got engaged!) and center of the castle! Success!

Perks of getting up early, it looks like we’ve got the whole place to ourselves!

I’m so so thankful for those overcast skies that showed up! I know this was a spot they were so excited about, and thankfully the lighting worked out so we could make it happen!

— Cinderella

These two! I had the most special morning with them. They have the world’s greatest sister, one of my past brides Lauren, and she arranged this session to be a gift for Ben and Lisa after their wedding plans were rearranged so drastically last year. Little did she know when she arranged the session for them, it would turn into a baby announcement session as well! Ben and Lisa shared how many wonderful memories they have here over the years, and I’m so thankful for the ability to capture a bit of that magic! Congratulations to you both!

One of Lisa’s requests! Adorable!

All sessions should include a spin on the People Mover!

And a Mickey pretzel! Yummm!

Oh and did I mention, they’re not just adding one new Mouseketeer to their family, but TWO!! Ah! I can’t wait to meet these boys!

All at once everything looks different
now that I see you.”
– Tangled No better place to celebrate your first birthday than the happiest place on earth! I’m so glad it worked out for these sweet clients of mine to be there the same time I was. I know WDW means so much to their family, and I love that we got to celebrate Nora’s very first birthday here with some extra special portraits!

It’s the best when I get to combine Disney Days with Aunt Jessie days! I got to spend nearly a week with Kate and Ryker doing all the parks and all the rides and enjoying alllllll the snacks, and of course we made time for some updated family portraits one evening at Epcot! The world showcase is still my favorite spot on property for sessions, and we had a perfect evening for it! :)
