South Florida Child Portrait Photography
Eva’s woodland 18 month celebration at Wolfe Lake Park.
Guys where does time go so fast! I can not believe that I am posting an 18 month milestone session for my little one, Eva. Eighteen months has flown by so fast and I’m looking at these images wondering where my little, chunky baby went. My husband (business partner extraordinaire) and I chose Wolfe Lake Park for her session since it is one of our favorites for South Florida child portraits. We both love the outdoors and this little park is full of charm. The lake is surrounded by towering Florida pines and the pine needles coat the floor like a blanket. We have a special place in our heart for this park. And trust me, if I could spend my days sending emails and editing photos in the middle of the woods, I would. We are well on our way to becoming forest-loving homesteaders. But more on that later.
We also decided to adorn our little one with a hand made floral crown. Because, come one. If I could put beautiful flowers on every little girl I photograph I would. I may have a slight obsession. I’m sure you have noticed the trend if you follow us on Instagram. These beauties came from Field of Flowers in Davie, FL. Which is always my go-to spot for flowers when I need to get in and out fast.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but our little one is spunky. She posses a wild streak that is out of the norm for toddler wildness. From the time she was born, all of my family called her Roary (short for her middle name, Aurora) and very appropriate for her temperament. The tiger of the family. She has a little bit of fire in her veins and we love it. This however, does not make her easy to photograph. Eva is quickly becoming the typical photographer’s child. She hates being in front of the camera.
Now, I photograph toddlers on a regular basis and besides motherhood photography, they are my favorite subjects. Their emotions are pure, real, and unscripted. Which I love! You won’t get awkward posing from a two year old and that is my dream as a photographer. But pair her spunk with the fact that she was chasing me down to see the back of my camera, and this portrait session was tough.
My husband came to save the day as my assistant, feeding her french fries and singing songs when needed. He also made a quick appearance in a few images at the end of the session. I hope you enjoy and happy year and a half birthday to my little love, Eva!
