Family Photography Trinity FL | Cunningham Park | Ordonez Family

I have known this family for years and have enjoyed watching the family grow.  They are a blessing to know and call friend.  When photographing large family groups, especially with kids, it is not the simplest task to get everyone (and dogs!!) looking at the camera.  I actually prefer the photos where the family is not looking all directly at the camera and instead are just being themselves.  I posted both posed and lifestyle pictures so you can see the difference and judge for yourself! 

Merry Christ and Happy 2022 to the Ordonez family!

Camera Update Nikon D810 | Pet Photography Trinity FL

Recent events led me to upgrading my Nikon camera. My Nikon D700 has served me quite well for the last 12 years.  I got the best help and service at Pasco Camera Exchange in Downtown New Port Richey.  My dogs make the best subjects!!  Here are some test shots from the new camera.

The Best of 2011

Here is a throwback to 2011.  I was cleaning up drafts of my photography blogs, and I came across this from 2011 that had never been posted.  My daughter Kayla was going on 13 years old and my son Jacob was 10 years old.  I was still new with my photography business and often used them to model for pictures.  

Highlights of the year was a summer trip to Sugar Mountain, NC.  We enjoyed time at Wildcat Lake.  We also did a winter trip that year where there was lots of snow.  For Kayla's 13th birthday, we did a Segway tour in St. Petersburg.  The kids also enjoyed trick or treating in Longleaf.  The year ended with Christmas time with family and our sweet dog Annie. 

2011 was a good year.  It is hard to believe the kids are all grown and out of the house now.  

I always had a love of photography to capture memories.  I have struggled with a fear of forgetting.  Maybe it is also a sadness of people no longer in your life.  

Thankful for the memories and the photos.
