Mommy Goggle Overshare | Pensacola Family Photographer

Have you ever heard the term Mommy Goggles?  Do you ever wonder exactly what these mommy goggles are?  Well it can mean different things to different people, but my definition is when someone, mom, dad, brother, cousin, whoever, loves a photo because of the emotional attachment to the subject in said photo.  Technically, the photo can use some improvements but these technical flaws are over powered because of the viewers blinders.  Usually it is said about a mother/child.  The mommy loves the image because the child is hers in the image.  However, take that emotional connection away and the photo is bad. Technically.  You see this all time time, people posting blurry images of their children on Facebook and grandma replies “I love this photo”  What grandma really means is she loves the child in the photo.  Its an easy type of goggle to pick up, because we tend to be connected emotionally to photos we are looking at.  When is the last time you picked up a strangers family album? See what I mean…..

So with that being said, please excuse this intense over share of basically the same image.  They are images of someone I am emotionally attached to.  I’ve got my mommy goggles on.  I can see huge differences in each of these photos whereas you, the viewer probably only needed to look at one of these images and understand what was going on.  :)

Do you think you have mommy goggles?  If so, do you believe it is a bad thing? Why?


…another Baby Plan graduate!

I had to modify my baby plan a little bit for this family.  They were moving and so we swapped out a maternity for the year and pushed up the sitting age a bit so we could work her into the baby plan package!  I’m so glad we did because again, to see my clients turn into mothers, and newborns grow into little people I can’t even begin to tell you how it warms my heart.  This is not just a line, this is the truth.  To see everyone grow, to see families being made, it is just magic.  I will leave you with some of my favorite images from the last session with this little cutie!  Mom brought a very special item, a necklace.  I’m so glad we were able to photography this item for her!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

…another one grows up | Pensacola Child Photographer

It seems as if all my little ones are growing up!  This little girl you may remember from her in home newborn session which can be found here.  I also photographed her nursing, here… and now she is all grown up.  Ok, so maybe not grown but def. out of that “newborn” stage and onto her life as a toddler.  She has so much personality already, I saw that from 5 days old, but it is really coming out!  Her and her big sis are really special together and I hope you all enjoy these images as much as I do!



What a difference a year makes | Pensacola Child Photographer

…My goodness where to begin?  This little lady is very special to me, she is one of my first Baby Plan Clients.  I met her when she was still growing.  Her mom, just glowing, so beautiful.  Her Dad, so strong a supportive.  I can’t believe she is already a year old!  Where has the time gone?  It really makes me stop and think about the past year, what it included and it also makes me so excited for another year!  I hope you enjoy these images from little Miss M!



Baby Blue Eyes | Pensacola Child Photographer

So I first met this little girl when she was still growing in her mommies belly!  She came back for her newborn session and now can you believe it!  She’s 6 months already!  This is the part about my job I am in love with.  This is why I do what I do and this is why I am so passionate about it.  Seeing these families grow, these babies grow into their own personalities, it is just amazing.

Little G is very serious.  She really takes it all in, very aware of her surroundings, and every so often will let a little smile creep in.  I can not get over her gorgeous BLUE EYES that is for sure!

I hope you enjoy these images of her, I certainly do.
