A 4AM wakeup call was TOTALLY worth it for the amazing lighting we had on today’s New Smyrna Beach family session! Maggie is officially one and she is almost as much of a beach lover as Jack. We traveled out to New Smyrna Beach this weekend to capture Maggie’s first birthday portraits and a family session at sunrise for the Fisher family!
I first met the Fisher family last year when Christina reached out for a maternity session. They were expecting their first child, a little girl soon to be known as Magnolia Rae! Christina and Martin were the absolute sweetest couple and I honestly felt like they were lifetime friends already. Maggie arrived in the world a few months later and we got to meet that precious face during her lifestyle newborn session. She didn’t love us at first, but I think you will see the stark difference in today’s session!
Our session was scheduled for the first week of October, just a week or so after Maggie’s first birthday. Because we are in Florida, though, we had to deal with the crazy weather again. Unfortunately, we had to reschedule, but oh my gosh was it worth it!!! Jack and I headed out to New Smyrna Beach early Saturday morning to meet up with the Fisher family. There was a little bit of cloud coverage, but as the sun came up, it greeted us with the most stunning cotton candy sunrise. I was in LOVE!!
Maggie was so full of smiles on our New Smyrna Beach family session at sunrise. When Christina and Martin told me that she loved the beach, they weren’t kidding. She was running around in the sand like she was a kid in a candy shop!! She was also fascinated with the water and kept wanting to run in. Although Maggie wanted nothing to do with posed family portraits, you can really see the love and happiness from this family! I am so in love with this session and that Maggie smile.
Christina and Martin, thank you for trusting us yet again with your amazing family!! We have loved getting to know you guys over this year and I hope to have more sessions in the future! Take a peek inside Maggie’s first birthday and family session at New Smyrna Beach.
