Short and sweet mini sessions are a great time to capture a ton of family photos in a short amount of time. This year’s Lavender mini session were so gorgeous! Today, I want to share some beautiful images from the Barcelo family’s session as they joined me at Life Under the Oaks Lavender Farm! 

Blanca is a bodybuilder, and she also happens to be an amazing returning client! Today, she brought her mom, her sister Cristina, and her adorable kids Matthew and Atalie. They totally brought their A-game to this Lavender mini session.

And let me tell you, they know how to rock coordinated outfits like nobody’s business! Blanca and her family always show up dressed to dazzle. She looked fantastic in purple, her mom rocked a sunny yellow, and Cristina looked so elegant in peach. They sure know how to coordinate their outfits, making their family portraits pop with style and flair. 

But it’s not just about the fashion game. The Barcelo family genuinely appreciates the art of photography. Every time we meet, they bring along Grandma (or Blanca’s mom) to capture those special multi-generational moments that melt your heart.

I knew we were in for a treat, but when they arrived, I was in for a treat! I still picture Atalie as a teenager, so when she showed up with her BOYFRIEND, I was shocked! As it happens, she turned 24 years old in the blink of an eye. Talk about a plot twist!

They asked if he could join in for a few shots, so of course, I said yes! It was an unexpected delight to capture their natural chemistry, adding an extra dose of joy to our photo session. And I mean, come on! How cute are these two!?

Let me tell you, this family is seriously photogenic! Blanca’s sculpted physique was so full of elegance and power, while Matthew brought a playful charm to every shot. And Atalie? She looked absolutely stunning in her chic beige dress. 

It was like they were born to shine in front of the camera! Their natural ease and cooperation made my job a breeze, resulting in a treasure trove of enchanting images that not only captured their individual personalities but also showcased their strong family bond. Trust me, each frame was a work of art!

Above all, my photo session with the Barcelo family at Life Under the Oaks Lavender Field was an absolute blast! We laughed, we bonded, and we created magical memories together. It was everything I could have asked from a photo session and more!

Their genuine appreciation for photography and the tradition of including Grandma in every session highlighted the importance of cherishing family moments. I’m honored to have been a part of their journey! Blanca, thanks so much for being a part of my Lavender mini sessions!
