Baby Ella - Candice Smith Photography in Naples, Fl

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 9th anniversary by taking a mini roadtrip to Central Florida. We included all of the things we love in this trip: each other, friends, nature, and photography. This series is all about our friends.

Meet Baby Ella! She is the daughter of two of our closest friends and my boyfriend's God-daughter!

Two generations of proud women who absolutely adore this precious girl!

He's such a proud best friend and new God-father!

And here's her (maternal) Uncle as he fawns over his first niece.

Connie + Andy - Candice Smith Photography in Naples, Fl

On an absolutely GORGEOUS day in October, we decided to take a mini roadtrip up to Central Florida. After learning of our plans, a few of our most loyal clients asked to take advantage of an equally gorgeous location that we had on our agenda. They made the two and a half hour trip up to meet us and we had some amazing sessions!

Thank you to all of my clients who indulged this farther than usual location and for letting me capture such amazing photos for you all! I think we'll have to plan to do this again! :)

And a bonus: This baby squirrel took notice of us as we were photographing this couple against it's tree. He climbed down from his tree and promptly followed us away. Trying to get him back to the tree, Connie had to remove him from nursing on her shoe and climbing up her pant leg. We snapped this quick photo and devised a plan to get him back into the tree and get out of the area as soon as possible so that he couldn't follow us again. He definitely had enough adventure for today....and he definitely added to ours! 

We're hopeful his momma had him in her sight the whole time and they were soon reunited!

First, I'd like to congratulate you all on your upcoming senior year! It's an amazing time in your lives. A time when you get to make some of the best memories of your youth, make some of the greatest friends you'll ever have, and learn about yourselves and what you want to do once you've graduated high school. But, before all of that happens...you get to enjoy this amazing year ahead of you!

Woodland Fairy - Candice Smith Photography in Naples, Fl

I've had  a few ideas floating around inside my head of themed sessions that I'd like to photograph and it just so happened that one of my longtime clients had a similar idea and pitched it to me when she found the perfect location to execute it. I was absolutely thrilled to know that someone was just as excited about an idea as I was and that she was willing to go above and beyond to help make it an amazing themed session! She even made the incredible tutu dress that her daughter wore for her session! Without any further wait, I'd like to present my very first themed session...

Woodland Fairy


...and then she'd twirl, and twirl, and twirl until she got so dizzy that she'd fall down. She loved her fairy dress...and I can't blame her!
