Ryan Family Session Golden Ocala

I had the pleasure of working with the Ryan Family for their annual photo session. I have worked with Dad and the girls a couple of times before as I photographed them before their Daddy- Daughter Dance that’s held around Valentine’s Day! They’re such a photogenic family! My goodness! Combine good looks with Jen’s knack for styling and put them in a beautiful location of Golden Ocala and you have your dream shoot! Seriously!

They’re also a really fun family! It’s been such a pleasure getting to know them over the years. I hope that we’ll have more shoots together! Here are some favorites from their session…

Carter Family Session – Sholom Park

One of my top locations for family photo sessions is Sholom Park in Ocala, Florida. It’s been on the radar of local photographers for years. Some poo-poo it saying that EVERYONE has their photos done at Sholom Park.  I say it’s the perfect spot! There’s beauty in almost every direction that you look which can especially helpful when you have little people that you’re following around. And a big plus is having a restroom facility. Great for potty training kiddos as well as a spot to change into a new outfit. Plus they have a little of everything…pond, manicured forest, rolling hills, blooming annual flowers, walking paths etc… I love the peace and tranquility that can be found there. It seems that most of the folks that enjoy this space, do so comfortably and pleasantly. I do a little giddy dance when a client suggests Sholom Park! It’s definitely one of my happy places!

The Carter Family came to me via a silent auction put on by my children’s school. Mrs. Carter is a new teacher there and I didn’t quite know her when we were planning. I knew that she had a son that was in the military, a daughter that was a senior in high school. and an elementary-aged son. All of her kiddos were going to be under one roof near the holidays and she was anxious to have a photo session that showcased that. What an honor it is for me to do that for this lovely family! We meet up at Sholom Park and I feel like Mrs. Carter and I have been friends for years! She’s that kind of gal. I love that in a person. Instant comfort! We were able to get some great shots of her kiddos and her whole family! We’re going to make a date soon to order up some artwork for her walls! thank you, Carter Family!

Wells Family Horse Farm Session

Here we go, again! Another super sweet family!

We go back about 5 years? Our boys were in school together for their first three years. It was always fun to be a text away from figuring out what assignment was due, when the spelling tests were, and who was bringing what treat for a  classroom party. Always fun!

The Wells Family took part in a mini session event, Horse Form Family Session, that I was running at a local horse farm. Boy these horse farms in  this region are incredible! Situated among rolling hills with views of other farms. Peaceful. Picturesque. Perfect. This particular farm belongs to a relative of a friend of mine. Many barns, outbuildings, and paddocks occupy the space. It really makes for some interesting backgrounds with the parallel fences and setting sun. That’s all new to me as I know NOTHING about the horse farms and the industry that is so prevalent here in Ocala. You’ll see. I think that these came out terrifically! Thank you, Wells Family! I adore you all!

Hise Family Home Session

Talk about a sweet family…these folks are just that. How do I get so lucky? Seriously. I think it’s because

I’ve known Mom, Shana, for a couple of years as our kiddos go to school together and we’re both quite active with volunteering there. I’ve also had the opportunity to get to know her through her daughter’s dancing school, Performing Arts Conservatory (PAC), where I’ve been lucky enough to photograph several of their shows. I didn’t know her boys or husband well, but had a bit of opportunity to get to know them during their shot. I think that the boys came out of their shell for me. I’m sure they ask mom, “Who’s that crazy photographer lady?” after I leave. I’m always trying my best to get them to crack so that I can get genuine smiles.

Shana chose her home as the backdrop as they, literally, JUST moved into. It was perfect! Everything from the large yard to the spacious front entryway. We were able to get a few set-ups to showcase the family in their environment. As I’ve said before, I love photographing families at their home. Everyone is so much more relaxed and can quickly retreat back to what they were doing just before the shoot. It saves the family a lot of time, too…especially in this day and age where a lot of the day is spent in the car shuttling kids here and there.

I am so in love with these photos as it really shows the fun and relaxed family as they are. It’s a little posed with some gentle direction to make for fun moments. I hope that they’ll enjoy these photos for many years to come. Thank you trusting me with your family photos, Hise Family.

Location Scout In Ocala Florida

As a photographer, I find it really difficult to turn my brian off. It probably has to do with the fact that photography is a visual art form and I REALYY REALLY LOVE doing it! I’m always on the hunt for beautiful light. Or noticing subtle micro-expressions from my kids. And I’m always wishing that I had my camera handy.

Well, today it caught up with me that Ocala has so much more to offer than what I know and have explored. Today, I went to the old train station on North Magnolia. I know that they’ve been working on updating the space surrounding it. I grabbed my boys and my camera and we did a little exploring looking for light and great backdrops. I was pretty taken with what we found.

The sculptures we found were so fun! How about that colorful spider web? So pretty…especially in the setting sun. The landscape was a little barren, but I know that once the foliage matures, it will frame the walking paths beautifully!

Upon leaving, we were treated to a little humor by a mason who worked on piecing together the limerock wall. How about that goofy face? Isn’t that hysterical? I noticed it as I was getting into my car and had to pop out for a photo. We all got a good chuckle out of that! I hope that you’ve enjoyed your brief tour!
