Getting Up Before The Sun | Mary McGuire Photography

I'm always talking about "moments" over here. Capturing  moments, saving moments, being in the's all about the moments. I'm not being really is all these moments in our lives. Enjoying and savoring them.

My youngest has been asking me all summer to go to the beach. The child wants to go to the beach ALL THE TIME. She's a beach baby for sure.

This summer didn't work out as I hoped...I got pulled in a lot of directions know, life and all it's stresses pulled.

I took a few days off this week and my youngest asked if we could go to the beach "reeeeeally" early. And she meant sunrise early. As much as I wanted to sleep in, I thought "say yes." So I did...and we went...and it was glorious.

My lesson...try to say yes more often to enjoying moments.
(Even if it means getting up before the sun.)

Birth Story, Boca Raton | Mary McGuire Photography

I've got myself a gaggle of I've been through labor. ;) And many of us have we were there when they came into this world...either delivering or holding the screaming woman's hand. But, when you're INVITED to be at a be a part of SOMEONE ELSE's truly is such an amazing honor.

Jeanne and Jeremy welcomed me in to this awe-inspiring moment in their lives and asked that I document the birth of their daughter.

Even now...typing...I still struggling for the words to describe how special this was. So I'll do what I do best...let the pictures tell you.

(And for those photographers who worry about the lack of light in a hospital...I tell ya... embrace it! My favorite images were the ones in the dark...with just the monitor lights. Go'll see.)

Family of Elves Holiday Photos - South Florida Portrait Photographer

"So, my mother-in-law bought us all these Elf pajamas for Christmas..."

And that's how GREAT photo sessions are born!!


This family was all about doing something fun and different this year for their holiday photos. (Mission accomplished!) It's really such a special story. Mom & Dad were on a date years ago...dinner and the movie, Elf. Dad proposed that night. So a tradition of watching Elf began and continues today with their boys enjoying this now family classic.

I'm SO thrilled to be a part of such a special memory & tradition in their family.

(Buddy/Will Farrell would be SO proud of Dad jumping on the bicycle!)
