At Home with Sally’s Gang – Orlando Family Session

I’ve been pondering whether this is year 8 or 9 (or 10?) with Sally and her family, and decided I don’t really want to know because whatever the number, it will make me feel old. But the bright side is that I’ve gotten to watch her kids grow up from year to year, and they’re just such an awesome bunch of kids (and young adults, now!). So even though I haven’t been doing too much photography work, I was definitely happy to blow the dust off the gear for this bunch.





























Thanks as always! Hopefully I wasn’t too rusty this time around. 🙂

Kolson Is (Almost) One! – Orlando Family Session

Always thrilled to get together with friends and repeat clients, I met Kevin and Kathryn and their crew at Langford and Dickson Azalea Parks near downtown Orlando. They’d never been there, so it was also a chance to show them one of my favorite spots in the area, a little historical jungle oasis in the midst of the city. The occasion was their son Kolson’s upcoming first birthday–I shot maternity and newborn photos for this little guy as well, so the one-year session makes the trifecta. I also made sure to get some shots of Kathryn’s daughters, who are turning into beautiful young ladies!

Angelica and Her Boys at Disney Springs – Disney World Family Session

I met up with Angelica and Dennis and their adorable little boy (and the bun in the oven too!) at Disney Springs on Thanksgiving weekend, and the place was packed! But we had a good time making our way around and through the crowds to find some less-traveled spots for photos, and I think we ended up with some nice images. Hope you agree!

Another Year with Sally’s Crew – Altamonte Springs Family Session

Orlando Family Photographer - Kelly Verdeck Photography

I don’t want to make myself feel too old, so I’m not even going to remind myself how many years it’s been now that I’ve been meeting up with Sally and family for an annual session! But it’s been a bunch, and I’m always honored to help capture her family as they grow. And grow they certainly have! This year we had some delays (thanks, Hurricane Matthew!) but it worked out well, because the weather when we finally did meet up was absolutely perfect. We got together at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs, and this year Sally’s sister and family came along, as did the family dog (who is really something special too, though somehow that’s no surprise). I had a fantastic time, as usual, and I think we got some great shots–I hope you agree!

Kathy and Family at Coronado Springs – Disney World Vacation Session

// July 12th, 2016 // 2 Comments » // Family Lifestyle, Photos, Vacation

Orlando

I met up with Kathy and her lovely family on a toasty afternoon at Disney World’s Coronado Springs resort, a place I’d not really explored before. We got lucky with the weather–it was hot, but a thunderstorm cooked up nearby, which gave us some of the relief of clouds and a breeze, but thankfully without the rain! We had a great time roaming around, finding the little nooks and crannies I love about Disney parks and resorts.

Brad and Family in Kissimmee – Orlando Vacation Session

Brad got in touch to work a photo session into their family vacation/reunion trip to Orlando, and of course I was happy to oblige. We met up at Kissimmee Lakefront Park, which is a real gem–I always enjoy working there. We roamed and made photos on a warm (but thankfully breezy) Florida almost-summer morning–I hope they had as good a time as me!

This was my third time working with Maggie and Chris and their kids, and it was a pleasure to see them all again! This time we roamed around EPCOT for a bit, and had an absolutely beautiful spring day for it. There was lots of chasing kids around, which I always enjoy, so it was a good day!

Heather’s Family Hits the Beach – Cocoa Beach Vacation Session

I had a great time with Heather and her beautiful family at Disney World’s Boardwalk a couple years ago, so I was thrilled when she got in touch to see if we could arrange a beachside session before they set sail on a cruise. It turned out to be a rainy weekend, but we got lucky with a rain-free morning. The wind, however, was definitely in full force! But we made the best of it and had fun roaming around the Cocoa Beach Pier. Take a look!

Kathryn & Kevin Are Expecting! – Disney World Maternity Session

With their brand new baby boy on the way, I met up with Kathryn and Kevin for a stroll around Disney World’s Polynesian Resort. They’re old friends, so it was great to see them again and we had a great time roaming the grounds. I can’t wait to meet the little one–watch this space for his debut!

Missy and Family Come to Orlando! – Orlando Family Session

// March 30th, 2016 // No Comments » // Family Lifestyle, Photos, Vacation

Orlando Family Photographer - Kelly Verdeck Photography

I met up with Missy and her family at their resort in the Disney World area. It was a bit of a dreary morning, but at least the clouds kept the sun at bay! I always love getting together with extended families coming together for a reunion vacation here in Orlando. It’s always nice to watch the interactions between loved ones brought back together. So we roamed the grounds and had a good time!
