Vintage Holiday Photo Session | Ft. Lauderdale Photographer

It's funny to think, that as a native Floridian, there really is SO MUCH that I still haven't seen in my own backyard. I had seen these old buildings hugging the waterfront in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but didn't realize the history that was behind each of the building. On my "scouting" trip, I was given a great history lesson by the grounds keeper.

I LOVE when a client has an inspiration and likes to collaborate on the session!!! Their mom had recently been on a school field trip to the old Ft. Lauderdale History Center. She was inspired!! She had been wanting their holiday cards to have a vintage look. She found these fabulous dresses at Target and the accessories at Charming Charlie. (I had never been there...I am now a convert.)

The historic 1905 New River Inn was the perfect backdrop for these adorable little girls...complete with vintage travel luggage! We got rained/cold-weathered out on our first attempt. Second time was great!! The girls were great...all three are just as sweet as the next. (They were even better models than my own girls!!  ;)

I tend to lean to the brighter color photo sessions, but I am IN LOVE with these!!
