For my birthday this year all I wanted was to take some nice family pictures. I turned 33 last month (go read how I feel about that here), my kids are almost 5 & 7 and my husband and I have been married almost 8 years and we hadn’t ever done family pictures. The only other time we had professional photos was our wedding in 2009! We were overdue for some nice pictures and needed them done asap.
Since we were going to be in the Orlando area the weekend of my birthday, I wanted to do a shoot at Disney Springs. We are a BIG Disney fans and this was the perfect choice for our pictures. Disney Springs is essentially an outdoor shopping mall with tons of beautiful spots for capturing special moments. If you’re not familiar with this place, it used to be Downtown Disney in Lake Buena Vista, Fl. but it’s since been remodeled, renamed and turned into a much bigger shopping & dining plaza.
Our pictures were shot by the talented Mario of Sees The Day Photography. You can check out their work here. They are a husband & wife team with a true passion for photography and just the sweetest people to work with. It was extremely sunny and hot the day of the shoot but Mario & Cary were super patient, kind and worked with us to get the shot at each location.
It was fun going around finding little hidden spots. One of my favorites was the wall with the Disney Springs logo. My boys even grabbed a flower for me and Mario quickly snapped some great shots of this moment.
Then we headed to Sprinkles for a yummy birthday treat for “me” but it was really for the boys. They really enjoyed those cupcakes!
While we were deep in frosting, my husband sneaked away to Na Hoku jewelry store for a little birthday surprise!
Another favorite spot was this brick wall we found that matched with the clothes we were wearing! It’s almost like we dressed just to take pictures with that wall!
I am so happy with all the pictures and can’t wait to print them out and frame some!
