Hunter 6 Months | Polly Bloom Photography

I haven’t blogged in a while, but I thought this session would be the perfect session to come back with!

Back in September I did this little guy’s newborn session {remember the little baby fox!?}, if you’d like to check out the cuteness from his newborn session you can click here. Last week we spent the morning together for a mommy and me session for Hunter’s 6 month session {since he’s a momma’s boy and all} and it was so magical. His cute little rolls and chunky cheeks are just too much to handle so I won’t blabber on and let you see just how adorable he is and how beautiful his momma is!

PS: keep a look out for some new and exciting things coming to PBP as well as some “Mommy & Me” mini sessions soon!






Such a momma’s boy!







How beautiful is she!!?


These suspenders and that hat…..cuteness O V E R L O A D!










Family Session | Lakes Park: Poppell Family

Isn’t this family absolutely adorable

I loved meeting them earlier this year during the Easter mini sessions and I was thrilled to be doing a full family session for them now, one of the many perks of my job is the relationships I get to build with the families that I photograph and having the opportunity to watch them grow!

I adored the vintage inspired outfits mom pieced together with the suspenders & golf hats for the guys and little miss’ fur vest, they were just so perfect! Their outfits coordinated perfectly with the Lakes Park location and the kids loved their outfits as well {which made it a super bonus}! The smiles, giggles and fun started right off the bat and from start to finish this session was just amazing. I love capturing little moments between siblings and these two must have known it because they were just too stinking adorable together, their entire family was!

This may have been my favorite part of the session. I brought along this antique gem I have in my collection of, well everything, I thought it would be so cute and fun for the kids to get a chance to play with it. To say the least, they LOVED it and it turned out to be the perfect accent in their session!

This is a shot I try to get at every family session, Mom & Dad. Having photos of them together is just as important as having images of the kids together, they are the anchor and the reason there is a family session and just like they will look back at memories of their family and their children, they will be able to look back and the two of their’s as well.

Family Session | North Ft. Myers

This session was so much fun! I was warmly welcomed to this family’s farm home where the ducks waddled freely, the horses enjoyed the breeze and their goat, Lucy, was being the cutest goat ever {which seems to be her daily routine}. This family’s bond was undeniable and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to photograph them together.

And a Happy Anniversary to these two! 2015-11-30_0005
He was such an amazing big cousin to her, you could tell they have an unbreakable bond and she just absolutely adores him!  2015-11-30_0008


This family absolutely love their animals and have a passion for their farm. Lucy, the adorable goat, was jumping around and even gets rides in the golf cart she is spoiled and she knows it too!! They are the owners of Tail’s End Farm and you can tell they love what they do, I had an absolute blast during this session!




Lifestyle Anniversary Session | Chelsea & Nick | Cape Coral Photographer

“#MillerTime” was the hashtag for this couple’s wedding last October and for their one year anniversary they decided to do an “at home with the Millers” lifestyle session and man, this session was definitely one for the books! I had an absolute BLAST getting to know them while capturing their moments in their home just doing what they do. Nick and Chelsea are a fun, kind, happy, funny couple and you could just feel their love for one another surrounding the two of them and filling up their newly bought home. So naturally, this session was filled with fun, snuggles, laughs, jokes & flour. Yup, flour, Chelsea told me the next day she still had it in her hair!

This session tells a story, it tells their story that they can share with one another and their family & friends now and for years to come. It’s a story documenting not only them in their new home for their first wedding anniversary but their love for one another and the fun they have just being together and that right there is so special.

The session wouldn’t have been complete without this guy. And his bow ties, I couldn’t handle the cuteness! 


2015-10-22_0004 2015-10-22_0005 2015-10-22_0007

I couldn’t get over how adorable these two were together, this may be one of my favorites!


The “M” was made for them and displayed at their wedding.

And here is why Chelsea still had flour in her hair 24 hours after the session and Nick probably still has it in his ear. This. was. SO much fun!


It’s obvious these two were destine to be together and I wish nothing but the best for the two of them in their bright future together. Nick & Chelsea, Happy Anniversary!


Cake Smash: Bella Rose | Ft. Myers Photographer | Polly Bloom Photography

Oh Miss Bella and your super cuteness, I just can’t handle it!

I have known and been friends with this beauty’s momma since high school and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to share such a fun and happy time for this family. We sang, we danced, the birthday girl enjoyed smashing her cake between her fingers and the during the suds part of our session, she danced so hard she toppled out of the tub, the tub could not handle her awesome moves {don’t worry, she was 100% okay}. Oh, and we got poured on by the torrential Florida downpour, that was oddly freezing, but the laughs and fun that came out of us huddled under the trees trying to keep as dry as possible were totally worth it!

Bella has SO much personality already and her dance moves can’t be beat! What a magical session this was, I can’t wait to deliver their full gallery!

Cake Smash: Jeep | Cape Coral Photographer

“M.I.C.K.E.Y  M.O.U.S.E!”, come on, if you have kids or have been around them you know you’re singing it!

Here’s another one of PBP’s newborns, Jeep, who turning one and I can’t believe it! This guy and his family are dear friends and I am so happy to have the chance to capture such precious moments for them! I have been photographing this family’s journey since this little guy was in his momma’s belly and I have just loved watching him grow! You can take a peek at this guys’s journey herehere & here

He loooves Mickey and the outfit and letters mom brought along were adorable and so fitting for his birthday session.

Don’t let that cute little serious face fool you, he loved his cake and the bubbles after! This session was a blast and I can’t wait to continue to watch this handsome guy grow!


2015-10-09_0002 2015-10-09_0003

Oh my goodness, I just can’t get over his adorableness!!! 2015-10-09_0004 2015-10-09_0005

He knows the best way to eat cake, who has time for hands!!? 2015-10-09_0006 2015-10-09_0007

His whole outfit from head to toe was just perfect for him. 2015-10-09_0008 2015-10-09_0009 2015-10-09_0010

And you can’t do a cake smash without some suds at the end!

Olivia’s Birthday Session | Cake Smash | SWFL

I would like to start off by saying Happy Birthday to this sweetie! This birthday session was nothing less than perfection, she wasted no time digging into her cake and the wash up in the tub afterward was a hit for sure! I met this adorable and sweet family a little over a year ago for their maternity session, it was a hot and muggy evening that we still talk about but that didn’t stop their session from being fun and beautiful. A couple months later I had the pleasure of photographing their sweet new bundle of joy, who is now a year old, time sure does fly. I hope she is having a wonderful birthday, I love watching this family grow and it’s always such a pleasure capturing all their special moments. It is very clear how much love there is between and around them.


She wasted NO time digging into her cake, and she was not going to share either but she did have a second to tell us know how “good” it was!


A tub filled with bubbles…..instant fun!

I absolutely love having the opportunities to get to know and “work” with this family! Happy Birthday Olivia!





Onnah’s Birthday Session | Cake Smash

Is she really turning ONE already? Back in March I did this cutie’s 6 month session, you can see her sneak peeks here and here and last week I had the absolute pleasure of photographing her just shy of a year old!  To say this sweet girl loved her cake and her entire session is an understatement, I think the pictures show for themselves how excited she is to be turning one {not sure her momma is as excited about her baby growing up so fast}. Her name, Onnahalih Grace, means “morning grace” and that sure rings true to who she is. She is smiley, happy, cuddly, funny, sweet, sassy and full of joy. Her and her family are so near and dear to my heart, I am so glad to have the opportunity to photograph her as she grows.


The cake and tutu were homemade by her mom and I even got to help decorating the cake!



It’s fun to be ONE….obviously!



CAKE! She thoroughly enjoyed it and loved having it ALL to herself.


And how could we NOT wash up in a tub of bubbles after all that!?
