This pretty little thing is my niece (my brother’s youngest child). She’s a little ball of fire mixed in with a whole lot of sweetness.
Last year, my brother moved to a town called Ave Maria. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s about 20 minutes from Naples, FL and in the middle of what I call “Crocodile Land” (LOL). You’ll notice below why I call it this. Since it’s a new development in the middle of the Everglades basically you can find crocodiles ALL over the town. We also saw a deer!
The town is centered around a church, a university, a Publix and a few more retail establishments. Isabella will be doing her communion this month in the town church and of course I had to take photos of her for this special time in her life.
I headed over with my parents and tribe of 3 kids to take her photos and actually spent the night at my brothers. My poor niece was not feeling well the week leading up to the session and the day of the session was no exception. As we arrived, I didn’t think she’d make it through the session but with a little help of Advil and some Tia Silliness, it went wonderfully! It was so refreshing to shoot somewhere you haven’t before, especially that the scenery was different. Here are just a few of my favorites from her session…
