Birth Story, Boca Raton | Mary McGuire Photography

I've got myself a gaggle of girls...so I've been through labor. ;) And many of us have children...so 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 birth...to be a part of SOMEONE ELSE's moment...it 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 watch...you'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!)

Enjoy!

Super Boys | South Florida Portrait Photographer

I would have never thought that I could get these boys photographed in 3 different outfits...with a flyby rain shower...in an hour. Wonders never cease! These boys were made for photo shoots!! ;)

Our goal was to update their photos from last year (see those here), but we had some time towards the end to mess around a bit with some "super hero" moves! Great stuff!!

Enjoy!
