Chapel & Hudson’s Cellar Family Portraits
The Brownlee family met me out in the heart of Winter Park at the beautiful Chapel & Hudson’s Cellar wedding venue in Hannibal Square. I couldn’t wait to photograph my friend Sydney and her family for two special occasions combined into one session; their holiday portraits and Alli’s one year photo announcement!
It is crazy to think how fast time has flown by since photographing Sydney’s maternity session with her hubby Chapman at Rollins College. Now almost a year old, Alli has brought so much joy each and every day into her mommy and daddy’s lives. With the big number one coming up, Sydney explained that, “becoming parents has opened both of our eyes to how truly special each moment and season is. We often take time for granted and Alli has made us appreciate the calm days at home.”
Alli definitely keeps Sydney and Chapman on their toes through her love of constantly cruising from room to room. Almost ready to walk, it is one of the moments that Sydney and Chapman are looking forward to most in the coming year. Alli also loves to bounce and dance, share her food and toys with those around her, and explore outside – whether it be from inside looking out the window or venturing around on the grass. As Chapman dotes, “we love seeing more and more of her personality each day.”
As the holiday season fast approaches, the Brownlee family is looking forward to slowing down and sharing Thanksgiving with their extended family since last year was a bit of a blur having just become parents. Born just before Thanksgiving, Alli was definitely the best holiday present they could ever ask for. This year, in addition to spending time with family, Sydney and Chapman are also looking forward to seeing Alli open her gifts from Santa on Christmas morning.
A big thank you to the Brownlees for having me capture another beautiful moment and milestone in their lives!
