Everything is awesome {a storytelling session / lifestyle photography sarasota}

I knew Jimmy and Alene were going to be so fun to hang out with when they:

1) Offered to pick up Starbucks before the shoot

2) Informed me they were 100% okay with wearing pajamas during the session

This family really is just… awesome. I know people always say that in blog posts but sometimes it’s just true. And when both of your parents are awesome, you are 110% guaranteed to  be awesome. It’s science.

You know how you have a baby and then one day you’re like “Oh my goodness when did they get so big?”. It’s when they turn 1 & 1/2.

At 18 months old, James is that perfect mixture of sweet baby and little boy. Running and climbing one minute, snuggling with a bottle the next. He loves chasing balls and scrunches his nose up when he laughs. His eyes light up when he hears “Everything is Awesome” from his favorite movie (the Lego Movie in case you don’t know, and you should!).  He adores his mommy and daddy. And Rocco.

P.S. Rocco is the coolest dog you’ll ever meet. He loves the camera and the camera loves him!

Jimmy, Alene and sweet little James – it was so fun hanging out with you! Thanks for letting me capture a little glimpse of your magnificent life!
