Another busy Holiday season and so many blogs to share! I’m trying to catch up on editing, even taking a little break from shooting so everyone gets their photos on time. The great thing about living in Florida is working with families that are on vacation from all over the world. This gorgeous family was so fun to work with it’s always a compliment when another amazing photographer books you. Love this gallery!
This gorgeous and very photogenic family picked their location at Spanish River Library where they had their wedding and it was a perfect place to capture their little princess. Baby was all smiles, her connection with family pet is the cutest thing. The light was magical, the weather perfect and I’m in love with this gallery.
Every parent knows the song baby shark doo doo doo right? I love this type of photo shoot, so many fun ideas to reveal pregnancy and lots of cute items sold on Etsy. My clients got the most adorable props! They probably wanted to keep it very simple but I made them jump and run around the beach, they were awesome to work with, such a fun session and I can’t wait to see them again. Congratulations!
This gorgeous family was on vacation and we chose my favorite location, Red Reef beach. The weather was perfect, the ocean looked amazing and our little model was all smiles. I am in love with the moments we captured and specially when I get emails from clients saying how happy they are to have these memories. My husband who has been my assistant for almost 9 years is obviously a pro because this little cutie wouldn’t let him go at the end of the session.
Here is a storytelling session of my dear friend and a very busy mom of 3 boys. These photos are kind of staged but mostly not, because there are 2 toddlers and a 5 year old, all on the go and too busy to pose for me. This awesome family also has a puppy full of energy and the sweetest kitten. Super fun session, love spending time with them and mom always looks like a model but I promise it wasn’t an easy one for us lol We managed to get few smiles, a tantrum plus the usual part of life for this gorgeous lady. Everything was done in the comfort of their home and a few outside in the neighborhood. We had to work fast because the boys were not ready for modeling haha, enjoy and I bet many of you can relate.
Last year I met this gorgeous family to do pregnancy announcement photos and we had so much fun, now a family of 4 and Melania is so cute! Her cheeks and smiles, her adorable hair and she loves the camera. 6 months is such a perfect age for photoshoot, most babies just smile and are not crawling away from us yet lol Of course I’m also obsessed with Dudley and want to photograph him as often as possible, such a beautiful dog! Hope this gallery makes you smile!
Most of my clients are professional models like this family they might deny it but I don’t believe them. I mean how photogenic is this gorgeous family? Last year their session was just as fun and candid so a lot of photos look like they belong in a magazine in my opinion ;) Plus we were shooting at Boca Raton Resort and it’s such a beautiful location! The boys already know us and were not as shy this time, so much happiness and love captured.
Another gorgeous, sunny day in South Florida with this beautiful couple and their doggy! Mom is glowing and we captured memories that will be cherished forever. So happy they included their little Yorkie she is adorable.
This is our 4th session with this gorgeous family, I think they are all professional models well baby Charlotte is for a fact but they are also the sweetest and we love spending time with them. This was one of the funniest sessions because of donut smash! Valerie got the donut set up and it’s the cutest thing ever! Baby tried the donuts, cake and played with milk, she wasn’t afraid of getting covered in sprinkles and frosting, big success! We also did the family part outside in their neighborhood, gorgeous views there and included the doggies in Holiday photos! Enjoy, I am oversharing.
This sweet family hired us to capture family reunion and we had so much fun! On a hot September evening we had to work fast so the little once wouldn’t get tired. There was a lot of action shots, including Mark and I acting like clowns just to get two adorable twins to stay in one place for few minutes haha I think all of us got a work out and amazing, super fun gallery!
How gorgeous is this family! It was a very hot August evening however it’s not so bad when you’re having fun near the ocean. There is a breeze and the baby loved getting his feet wet. He was all smiles as soon as we got him close to water. Such a cute age to document!
How stunning is this glowing mom?! We were lucky to have the beach all to ourselves on this gorgeous but hot summer day and the gallery is beautiful. We had so much fun with soon to be big sister, she was a little model. It's not easy to pose during the crazy summer heat in Florida specially while you're expecting but what helps is shooting near the water, it was breezy with waves and perfect wind for our gowns. I'm sure this family will cherish the memories we captured here.
This little beauty is 2 months old and we decided that family session would work best for this age but the goal was to also get some posed/newborn photos if baby was up to it. The reason why a 2 month old would not do well with full newborn session is because they simply grow out of the stage when they are sleepy all the time. When we started the session it looked like baby was ready for a nap so we swaddled her and ended up using all the set ups I brought! She did so well sleeping through posed part and I love her gallery! At the end, when I unswaddled her she was rested and happy so we got a gorgeous smile!
We recently made a decision to bring our newborn studio to clients for convenience and for variety. I've always loved setting up for newborn shoots but something was always missing in the studio for me. When it comes to family portraits my style is natural and unposed, this was hard to achieve in studio and is much easier in the comfort of client's home. The minute I walked into this house, I realized how cool this family was, I'm not joking the decor was amazing. Gorgeous family and beautiful home!
How adorable is this little boy?! I had so much fun doing his newborn session! He slept the whole time and only got a little upset when we had to change him into one of my outfits. Neutrals are so great for baby photography, once you turn a photo into big print or canvas these colors will look great with any decor. All of our newborn shoots are now done at clients home so you don't have to leave the house. We did sibling portraits and I loved the matching outfits! Beautiful family and we are so lucky they chose us to capture this important milestone!
Another family that we adore from IL was on vacation and we had the pleasure of doing their family photo shoot! This is our 4th session with this beautiful family and we love working with them, seeing their little one growing up in front of the camera, time flies and she is such a sweet little girl. The weather was honestly crazy that day, we had to reschedule last minute to try and avoid the rain and it's been raining for weeks. We got so lucky and it started raining right when we were done with pictures! Mom did amazing job with outfits and just look at her dress, I mean wow she looks amazing! Love the memories with captured!
I'm a big lover of candid moments and we got a lot of those for this gorgeous family! It's been raining non stop in South Florida and the session was moved indoors. I'm so lucky that this family chose us for the third time to capture their life, love and adorable Charlotte. Love seeing the baby with her great grandmas, grandparents and uncles. She was all smiles for us specially when it was time for her to be the star in front of camera all by herself. I really can't believe how fast time flies and what a difference from newborn photo shoot. Love watching babies grow and capture their milestones.
Who doesn't love family vacations?! Making memories with your children while they're so little and to remember these moments it's even better to capture them! This family hired us while on vacation at Boca Raton. When I first started this amazing journey my goal was to capture children looking right at me and as years went by I realized that my views have changed. The best photos are the once where you see the personality, life and happiness, I can see all of those things and more on these photos!
This is an example of our lifestyle newborn session but now we also bring the studio to you! We have made this transition because our clients felt more comfortable at home with babies under 2 weeks old. I think it's so meaningful to capture family in their home in this case with their pets. The doggies were very curious and followed us around, apparently their favorite room is the nursery, probably because they assume it was all done for them lol I know this well because all of our 6 pets seem to think all the new items like furniture, bed sheets etc is all for them, they get so excited and are the first to test things out. Also did you know that after many years in business most newborn photographers are really just baby whisperers and get babysitting job offers all the time ;) I had to mention that because I always get audience around me, watching me work, wondering how is the baby sleeping through all the posing and asking if I can also babysit haha
This little girl was so fun, happy and curious! She is not shy at all and loved her photo shoot. As always we start with 1 year milestone, change into few outfits, try different backgrounds for variety, she was a star through it all. The cake part went as usual, babies are confused about the texture, process and she wondered why the adults wanted her to get dirty but once she tried a little piece it was all smiles again. This cake smelled amazing and was absolutely delicious, if you book cake smash with us, we would love to send you the bakery's information. We ended the shoot with warm bath to get the frosting off and just look at this gorgeous gallery!
