The Triola Family

 I'd like to think that the summer is winding down but we do live in Florida and i'm afraid we still have a few more months to go! Outdoor sessions can be challenging in the summer because of the heat and unpredictable rain! We finally met up with the Triola family after a couple reschedules and location changes!! :) I really think it worked out for the best because we found a really nice beach location out at Playalinda Beach in Titusville. We got out there pretty early to avoid beach goers and the heat and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful morning! :)

Because the sun was out full force we got such beautiful colors!

I <3 Silhouettes! :) That sunburst really makes me happy! 

Colin is a bundle of energy!! We had a hard time wrangling him in to get a a family picture or two! Can you blame him though? Not many more fun places than the beach!! :)

Sometimes you just have to let the kids do their thing! :) 

We are always so honored when our clients return to us for multiple sessions!! I know the kiddos gave us a hard time this session but hopefully next time we can convince them that getting their picture taken is super fun!! :)

The dog days of summer....

According to Wikipedia, "Dog Days" are the hottest, most sultry days of summer.  In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September.  The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather.  Pushing 90+ Fahrenheit each day puts us in dog kennel of summer!

Two BEAUTIFUL flowers!

Ahhhhh.....the pool!  Atticus has become a regular fish lately!  He has learned to dunk his head underwater, hold his breathe, and retrieve a dive stick.

Leigh was in love with the colors the sky was producing on the trip back home from swimming.

An old shed across the street from my parents house.  Growing up we couldn't see it from across the road as the entire lot was filled with orange trees.

The stages of a Fritillary Butterfly.  Each year they come and feast on our Passion Vine plant.  It's worth the destruction of a few leaves to see this miracle take place each year!

(Left) My little brother Monty always wore a cape as he ran around the house and played, so Leigh felt it was time to make one for Atticus!  I drew a logo and she went through her material remnants and put this together...SUPER ATTICUS TO THE RESCUE!  (Right) Just a normal night after dinner.  Atticus ate every bite of his mom's delicious home made Chicken-Pot-Pie!


....for a couple of seconds anyway!!!!!

The Baker Family

Mark and I had so much fun at this shoot! I found this location by accident and I am so happy I did!! The  foliage was just beautiful and the lighting was oh so perfect! We are always looking for new locations, especially over in the Brevard County area where we get a lot of requests. We will definitely be shooting here again! We first met up with the Baker Family last Winter for our first family session with them. Little Hunter was just a few months old! Well those babies they just keep growing and Hunter is one years old now and a bundle of energy! I loved my little baby but I think the toddler years are just the best so far! Stephanie and Josh, you guys have some really fun months(and years of course) ahead! I can't say enough how much we love this family! Just the sweetest couple you will ever meet! It's always a joy spending time with them and capturing their beautiful family! I hope you guys love these as much as we do!

Toon Army goes down in "Toon Town"

I couldn't wait for this game to start!  As I was down on the plastic pitch my Wife, my Brother, his Girlfriend, my Bro-In-Law, my Mom, and my Dad were all at Will Call getting ready to bring my son into the Football world for the first time!

I was again on assignment to get photos of local stars Dennis Chin (Oviedo) and Matt Luzanaris ( played 1 year at UCF and is from Florida himself).  With 25 mins to game time, Newcastle beings warming up on the turf of which they refused to play on at first.

Gutierrez, Ameobi, and Alan Smith among others getting ready.

The fans were ready to go!  Welcome to America Newcastle, we're not pushovers here anymore!

Gotta give a shout out to Los Guerrilloz & O-Town Hooligans, I missed you guys last game so I made sure to get ya this time!

Great turnouts by both sides.  Plenty of support from the Toon Army as well as the multiple Orlando City supporters groups!  A new attendance record of  10,889, it was a great atmosphere in an otherwise huge staduim!

Coaches take the pitch.....it's game time!

The game began with good action from both sides, and each got good chances on goal.

Luzunaris of OC getting up!

A great shot by Max and an equally talented save by the goalkeeper!

Dennis Chin taking control of the ball and backing down Jose Enrique

Post goal celebration!  Lots of love for both the assist and the goal, Chin couldn't have made it easier!  Dennis got a good run on a ball and put himself in position for a simple pass across the mouth of the goal and an easy shot by Molino.

Late substitution by Newcastle brings in ex-West Ham striker and new addition to Newcastle, Demba Ba.

My Son up in the stands seeing his first live football match! 
I made him a Newcastle shirt because I was wearing my Orlando City Shirt....by really im a Fulhamerican (Fulham FC supporter in America).  My beautiful wife Leigh on the Left and my Mum on the Right.

My Bro and his girlfriend Kimberly, and my son and I on the pitch after the game!

I already have him passing a soccer ball back and forth with me, it's only a matter of time before this footballer is either leading the defense as a goalscoring-sweeper like his old man, controlling the midfield like his uncles, or putting them into the back of the net as a striker!
