Lately, I’ve been thinking about the content of my blog. I used to include more personal posts–not just cute pictures of dogs, but peeks into my life. But then there came a point when blogging became a chore, something I put on the back burner, and writing a personal post didn’t even cross my mind. I’m not sure how many readers actually liked those rambling posts, but I know my mom was one of those people. Since I now live in Orlando, and my friends and family back home don’t really get to see what I do here, I figured I’d give personal posts another try. So this is your warning: be prepared for rambling writings about Emilee and life in Orlando! If you already know me personally, you may like to read about what’s going on in my life. If you haven’t met me, you’ll get the chance to know me and better and find out how weird I am. Fun!

A regular post that I used to share was a “Friday Five” roundup of five random things that I enjoyed, read, watched, ate, experienced, etc. I think it’s a good place to start, so let’s jump right in…

  1. Trees – Is that weird? Probably. But I love that there aren’t a million palm trees in east Orlando. I was at a park on Memorial Day that had a beautiful little trail shaded by the prettiest trees, and I loved it. Back in Englewood, there are lots of palmetto bushes, palm trees, and pine trees, and I don’t like them. But huge mossy oaks and ferns make my heart very happy. Love them.
  2. Deer – I never saw deer back home, but I’ve seen deer twice since I moved to Orlando. I saw a small group while I was riding my horse a couple of weeks ago, and then spotted a doe at a church. After seeing the deer, I had to watch Bambi. And then I cried, because that movie is sad. *sniff*
  3. Squats – Pretty sure I did over 200 squats on Monday, and my legs are still feeling it. Ouch. Kayla Itsines‘ workouts are not easy, but they are worth it. I’m on week 10 of her 12-week program, then I’m going to start over and continue the torture. Yay! More jump squats!
  4. Watermelon – It’s almost summer, which means time it’s time for Emilee to eat all of the watermelon! My favorite! Wait, chocolate is my favorite. But watermelon is right up at the top of the list, too.
  5. Farm Fresh Eggs – The wonderful little barn where I board Rydell is home to more than just horses. There are some dogs, a turkey, chickens, and a pot-bellied pig named Fiona. The chickens wander all around the farm and have their own stall where they can lay eggs. I bought a dozen eggs from the farm this week, and it made me so happy. I eat a lot of eggs, and I love knowing that they came from happy chickens living happy lives on a great little farm. Now I’m hungry for some avocado toast with poached eggs…

And finally, here’s a look at my iPhone camera roll.

  • I am always a fan of bloggers that make sure to show a personal side- I am also nosy and peek in medicine cabinets too, so maybe that’s just me! LOL. It’s always fun seeing the other side to people, not just business! And…I want to know all about that workout- I have been considering buying it- worth it???

I first met Kona at Paws in the Park back on Valentine’s Day, so I was very excited to get to see him a second time and photograph him at lovely Lake Eola. I’ve only been living in Orlando for three weeks, but I think it’s safe to say that Lake Eola is one of my favorite places. I love walking around the Lake, watching the swans (with their babies!), and enjoying the downtown atmosphere. I need to take my tennis shoes with me next time and go for a jog around the lake–a nice change of scenery from my usual neighborhood route.

Back to Kona… He was such a ham. This handsome guy has the best head wrinkles! And a great smile, and adorable ears, and cute white feet–he’s just an all-around good-looking boy. Add in his friendly, happy personality and you’ve got the whole package. I loved walking around the lake with him and his mom, stopping for portraits along the way. Kona and his mom are definitely a perfect pair. While clients usually choose to stay out of the photos, I love it when they participate in a few images with their pets. It’s so special to capture the relationship between people and their pets!

I hope you enjoy Kona’s fun Lake Eola photography session. If you’d like more information on an Orlando pet photography session for your dog, cat, horse, or hamster, contact me. I’d love the opportunity to talk with you about your pets!

I had a wonderful morning at Secret Lake Park photographing this adorable brother-sister duo! The park was the perfect setting for their fun portrait session. I loved the beautiful paths, shaded by towering trees. I’ll definitely be going back for sessions in the future. If you haven’t been there, check it out!

We started the session off on the swings at the playground, then took a walk around the park, stopping to climb on rocks, dance, and play. Little Noah had tons of energy and just wanted to run non-stop. He loves to be silly, and has the personality to match his fiery red hair. His big sister Emslee was quieter and content to twirl and play dress up. She was my best friend by the time the session was over! They are both such sweet, adorable kids. I’m so happy we could go to lovely Secret Lake Park together and capture fun portraits for their parents.
