Family Holiday and Joel’s 1st Birthday pictures

As the holidays approach so do the beautiful Christmas photos. We’ve never missed a family holiday picture, and luckily for Joel, his birthday photos will always be scheduled during our holiday pictures because little man has a December birthday.

We booked our photo with Ryan Clark, he’s the same guy who took our Husband and Wife photos. I just love his style, so of course we had to book him for Joel’s 1st birthday pictures and our family pictures.

We went to the Highland Manor in Apopka Florida. We originally planned on meeting at 5pm to catch the glow of the sunset, but traffic sucks, and a 25 minute commute was literally doubled to 50 minutes, so we arrived right at sunset. Ryan was still able to catch all these photos of us, with very minimal natural light. Hope you enjoy these photos of my family as much as I do.



If you’re local, I’d highly recommend getting your next family pictures done with Ryan!


Outfit details:

Boys’ outfits: Carters (can’t find it online, but check your local carters store!)

Joel’s shoes: Freshly Picked

My dress: Sophie & Trey (local boutique in my neighborhood).

Hair: I kind of just did my hair last minute. I was texting my best friend trying to figure out how to do it, and I ended up doing a braid to the side, and hair tying it back, so it’s half up and half down and just curling the ends. It took me a total of like 15 minutes to do.

Make up: my normal BB cream, with Foundation, blush, bronzer and Highlighter. For the eyes I used a gold eyeshadow base, and at the crease did a deep brown with a dap of black. Penciled in my eyebrows to make them more defined and finished it off with my cat eye-eyeliner and mascara!
