Pandora. Need I say more? If you've ever stepped foot inside of Pandora-The World of Avatar, you literally feel like you're there...and you feel super tiny...it's big. Other parts of Animal Kingdom I love for pictures are Africa, of course The Tree of Life and Dinoland.
With the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and Toy Story Land, Hollywood Studios has undergone quite a make over recently and is a great spot for family photos. And of course we can never forget the Tower of Terror!
Pick a country...any country! Or pick all of them! Photo sessions at Epcot are a DREAM at the World Showcase! When people request photo sessions here, I think of the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland..."So much to do. So little time" because there's just so many amazing things to see and do and photograph at Epcot!
Walt Disney World is the mecca for family vacations and welcomes guests from all over the world! Being that the entire resort is so picturesque and contains one of the most photographed buildings in the WORLD, Cinderella's Castle, so many families choose to have photoshoots at Magic Kingdom! The park is pretty huge and has some amazing backdrops is definitely a favorite for the kids! Popular locations for photos at Magic Kingdom include the east side of Cinderella's Castle, Ariel's Grotto, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Big Thunder Mountain and Liberty Square. I actually don't think there's a bad spot in the place...just areas more busy than others.
Probably at the top of my list for Disney photo sessions are sessions that take place at the resorts! Resorts such as the Grand Floridian and Disney's Beach and Yacht Club are some of the most requested locations in Disney World for photos. These locations are much quieter and less busy than the theme parks and generally the entire session is a bit more laid back. WDW Info has some GREAT videos on the resorts!
With all of this Disney talk, you probably forgot about all of the other amazing places Orlando has to offer for family photos. And there's one particular that hold my heart and the air conditioner at 72 year round...Gaylord Palms and their wonderful Atrium. Gaylord Palms is a top pick for me if you're worried about sweating in your family portraits! This place keeps you cool all year long :) Honorable mentions also go to Portofino Bay at Universal, Icon Park on I-Drive and Downtown Orlando
Amazing. While fighting the humidity and crowds Michelle managed to capture the most breathtaking photos. She is the most fun to work with. Even though we had just met her that day, she made us feel very comfortable. Michelle is great at responding and communicating. She answers all the questions and addresses all your concerns in no time. She is so talented and I highly recommend
Her photos encapsulated every emotion and feeling during that day. We couldn't have had a better photographer and I would hands down recommend her in a heartbeat.
Despite having a fussy 1 year old & thinking that we would get no good photos. Michelle did an amazing job and we got the most beautiful photos of my little family! Thank you for the hard work you put into capturing Memories for us!
About 1-2 weeks after your session, you'll receive a link to your image gallery. The gallery is active for 24 hours and this is where you'll be able to view your images and select your collection. These collections include both digital images and gift credit towards prints and products that best fit your family. The session fee is NOT applied to your collection.
Sessions are scheduled for either sunrise or about an hour prior to sunset and can last up to an hour. Just relax, have fun and enjoy your time together! Play games, give tickles and just love on each other!
Once you're booked, I'll send out a Client Prep Guide to help answer and questions you didn't know you had, give advice on what to wear, expectations and some tips on handling those tough moments that may arise. About 2 weeks prior to your session, I'll send out a Client Questionnaire to help me get to know your family before we officially meet
If you love what you see, let's chat! You can reach out to me HERE and I'll send you all the details about family sessions! I make it a point to be in touch within 24 hours.
