Velasco Family: Celebration Family Session

The Velasco family walked towards me and all I saw were smiles on everyone’s faces.  I immediately thought “what beautiful smiles!”  Leticia (mom) said her kids were not morning people but I would have never guessed!  Mya, Mateo, and Gabby were so energetic and happy!  I seriously couldn’t ask for better behaved kids!  Every time I had them look at the camera and smile, they obliged!  They were so good that we flew through all the poses and photo combinations in no time!

This is the second time I’ve had the honor of photographing a famous chef!  (The first being Mark and Jen’s wedding from Kadence).  Chef Camilo (dad) is head chef at Restaurant 1921 in Lake Mary.  I had a look at the menu and it is now on my radar for our next date night!

The beautiful Velasco family is currently a party of 5 with one on the way.  They have decided to keep the gender a secret.  Mya wants a little sister while the boys want another brother.  In less than 3 weeks, they will find out!

One of my favorite parts of the session has to be the interaction between Mateo and Gabby.

With just 2 years separating them, their brotherly bond was obvious.  I loved watching them hold hands, hug, and attempt to skip rocks together.  Definitely some family goals!

Leticia and Camilo, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your growing family!  It was such a pleasure having you in front of my camera! I can’t wait to see if you’re having a boy or girl!  Good luck on the rest of your pregnancy and may your delivery be smooth!
