Florida Trip

It's hard to describe the feelings and emotions that come with the passing down of a tradition onto your own children, especially when it has to do with the most magical place on earth:) My family, along with my husband's side of the family, just got back from Disney World and it was a fabulous vacation filled with lots of squeals of excitement from one little princess! I think I had more fun watching my daughter enjoy this experience and I am already thrilled to take her again once she is a bit older. Enjoy a few (adorable) photos (chosen from manny many more:).

On Thursday we made a trip over to Harry Potter World and I think if any of you out there are fans this is a must see/experience, it was awesome! We even picked the perfect cloudy day which gave the place a real feel for it's winter cenery (I even purchased a scarf:) And the butterbeer, oh the butterbeeer was a delight!!

Ronny and Donna - The Wedding

These first two shots describe the relationship of this couple pretty well I might say. They were so sweet to each other, Ronny's tenderness towards Donna was just adorable but then there was also a fun side that came out every now and then that told you these two were best friends (can you see Donna is sticking out here tongue at Ronny in the second shot?:) It was very enjoyable being in the company of these two all day and what a relief it was to have such lovely weather on 10-10-10! The day started off right with the arrival of these beauties!

This little flower girl reminded me so much of my daughter from the looks to the outgoing personality! She was so entertaining as the ladies were preparing, I could hardly take my camera off of her:)

The little ring-bearer had the cutest smile once he warmed up to the idea of getting his picture taken:)

Love this shot.

Donna, you looked lovely!

The flowers girls were just too funny with all their attempts at giving a natural looking smile!


I ran into the barn real quick before the ceremony began to get a glimpse at the reception decor and I liked what I saw!


I think they are pretty happy:)

Love this moment with Donna's dad right after the ceremony.

Then they were off! I thought it was great that the newlyweds got some alone time right after the ceremony in the horse drawn carriage, so romantic!

Your wedding was beautiful, thanks for letting me be a part of it!

The Abbiatti Family

Look at this family, aren't they cute?! And I didn't even tell them to do what they are doing here, just goes to show that sometimes it is the candid shots that make a truly great portrait:) Kirsten warned me early on that I will have my hands full trying to get a decent portrait of all of them but I told her not to worry and as you will see she didn't need to at all! Kids will be kids and even in the midst of that there is always a second or two in-between that they will sit still and give a smile. Most of the time I end up liking the silly pictures the best anyway and I know that each family cherishes the shots where their kids personality shines through!

I am pretty sure I was singing "twinkle twinkle" while this shot was taken. Worked like a charm!

What a pretty girl and she LOVED the camera! (and the camera loved her:)

Love this one!

What a sweet little boy! He is going to have fun with two older sisters!

It was time for a little break and he was off!

Dayn decided to entertain the little ones in preparation for a few more photos, she did a great job:)

And then they were ready for this shot, good one!

Tessa was just about done... until dad cheered her up!

At the end of the session the kids got a treat which made for some great shots!

That just about sums it up:)

Had to throw in this last picture just for Dayn, she requested it since she had just gotten her nails done the night before. You all did so wonderfully!
