It’s even more special when it’s someone like Jessica and her beautiful clan! With her permission, this was Jessica’s first trip to Walt Disney World with her kids since her divorce. When I read that in her inquiry form, I immediately knew that I wanted to work with her! See, my first time to Walt Disney World, was my daughter’s first time as well, when I was 25 years old!

Why was this trip so special? This trip marked a year since my divorce and being a single mother. I will share more of this story on another blog, but this trip with my daughters after my divorce meant something.

I knew it would mean something to Jessica and her family too! And to have the memories captured makes it even better!

I got to know Jessica and her family through social media in the months leading up to their session, and when it finally came time for their session, Jessica felt like an old friend!

I know that this trip to Walt Disney World was so special to this family, and we headed to The Grand Floridian for this beautiful session! The sun was shining, and it was the most magical day for a session!

Check out their magical family session below:

You can’t tell me you don’t see that extra pixie dust magic with this session!! I know that they enjoyed Disney and the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World this year as well (hence their outfits matched the castle colors!)

Are you heading to Orlando and in need of an Orlando Photographer? I would love to chat with you to see if we could also make your session just as special!
