Happy Holidays!! We’re doing a little something different for our holiday sessions this year and we’re SUPER EXCITED about it! We wanted to figure out a way to incorporate our **Day In The Life** sessions with the holiday season, and what better way to do that than by having a traditional moment in your family’s life documented?!
Every session comes with:
an on-line digital gallery
3 mini accordion-style photo books (one for you and 2 perfect stocking stuffers for family! – or keep them all! haha)
a beautiful metal ornament of your favorite image for your tree!
One of the biggest regrets when we lose someone, or when time passes faster than we imagined it would is that we didn’t spend enough time with the people we loved. We always thought we would have more of it. We always thought we’d have that chance. Here at Lucky Elephant Photography we give you that chance, and above all we make that memory last forever. We think some of the most important memories are the ones that we don’t think to get photographed. Especially as a parent, think of those moments that you end up missing the most and never realize how fast they can go away as your kids grow up. The last time your daughter will let you brush her hair before school, the last time your son might want to play ball with you, the last time they let you tuck them in for bed. These are the moments we end up missing and mourning. We wished we had cherished them more. With the album, prints and online gallery that is included in every session you will never ever have to worry about losing those memories.
Our session packages are separated by time so that everyone can have the opportunity to remember the small things and so that no one misses out on the opportunity to have them forever. We currently have a two hour package (A Minute in the Life), a four hour package (A Moment in the Life) and an 8 hour package (A Day in the Life). Custom packages can also be created to make sure you have a complete story for whatever you have in mind.
Send us a message today to find out more information and if you know you want some pictures but aren’t sure what you can do in the time frame you want, let us know and we can help you make some decisions – from baking cookies at home, to a day spent at the beach, to fishing at the park, to full birthday parties. There is a special memory that anyone can create.
“Little girls are precious gifts, wrapped in love serene. Their dresses tied with sashes and futures tied with dreams.” – Unknown
I thought that quote was perfect for Arianna. I grew up with her mom, we went to elementary school together and our grandparents lived blocks away from each other. After school I’d find myself over her house and we would play with her dolls and barbies for hours. Though she lives in Georgia now she was down here on vacation and had to get a story session in while she could. Arianna’s mom is a very talented seamstress and can bring any dream that little girl has to life (so freaking cool!). This time that dream was playing dress up as Sophia. I sat on the sidelines and just captured her being her as she had a tea party with her friends, picked flowers for her grandma and when she went back in her brother and uncle wanted to join in the tea party too! Here are just a few of my favorites from her story!
Never again can these moments happen, never again in the same way or the same time. When you realize this these memories become priceless, valuable treasures. When these are gone how much would you give to get them back? If you ask anyone who has lost a loved one or has misplaced memories, they would give anything.
Let us document a day in your life. Capturing these real honest moments will never be a regret, only not having them will be.
The Mandalorian Mercs is an international costume club dedicated to helping charities and creating movie-quality costumes for conventions and fundraisers. Some of the members from South Florida invited us to be a part of one of their armor making events. As a wife of a Star Wars fan and a lover of cosplay I was excited to see the behind the scenes. We started off in the backyard, watching as they cut their armor out and painted the details onto weapons and helmets. Midway through there was break for coffee and cookie cake and when the final touches were complete we ventured out the Everglades to get some photographs of their completed costumes.
This was such a unique experience and a great start to our Story Sessions. If you’re interested in joining the Mandalorian Mercs let us know and we’ll happily get you in contact with someone from the South Florida chapter. Here are a few of the pictures from our day!
Richard and Whitney are two very cool, down to earth people. If you get the pleasure of spending more than a couple minutes with them you can see they are more than just lovers, but best friends. Most anything he says is guaranteed to make her laugh and the way he looks at her is just perfect. Whitney and I got to spent a lot of time talking about her family and their upcoming destination wedding out of the country!! How is amazing is that?
Their love for each other is just a small part of why this session was so special to me. It was the end of an era for Lucky Elephant Photography but the start of something new. You can start to see bits and pieces of the change if you snoop around our website but that’s all I’m saying for now. Get excited and keep your eyes out for a future blog post because this one is all about Whitney and Richard!
All the moments spent with these two were a breeze and fun! Here are a few of their favorite pictures from their engagement session.
Lisa and Donny were our first engagement session of 2015. An engagement session is meant to capture and celebrate the love between two people. They are a wonderful and fun way to start off any wedding story! We shot at my favorite of our exclusive parks and it was such a pleasure. The lighting was great, the weather was perfect and the two of them were super cute with great chemistry to boot. I really really really can’t wait to capture the rest of their wedding day story in October! They are going to love their photographic heirlooms. Here are just a couple of our favorite digitals from the session!
