I think everyone assumes that we only do photography for babies and bellies, we are good at that after many years in business but glamour, fashion is how this journey started for me. I always loved photography, finished college with a degree in dietetics and got corporate job that had nothing to do with any of these things lol While I was trying to figure out what’s next for my career, I kept shooting for fun, which led to a cute vintage shop on Etsy and a lot of weekly photo shoots with gorgeous store model aka my best friend. We had so much fun and I miss those days! Anyway every girl needs a shoot like this so don’t be shy and book one for yourself!
I really can’t get over the fact that we live in paradise like Boca Raton Fl where it’s gorgeous, always sunny and we can do outdoor sessions all year. I always liked outside or lifestyle sessions more but living in Chicago we were stuck indoors often doing most of my work in studio which is beautiful just not something I want to do anymore. I really love shooting at new places here in South Florida even in the same park or beach there are still plenty of awesome spots to create magical background full of color and beautiful light. This mom is absolutely stunning, I really didn’t want this session to end.
This gorgeous family was on vacation and we have met before in Chicago so it was so exciting to see them again! The weather has been kind of unpredictable in Florida and we were actually all freezing the day of the shoot, we still got some amazing shots but decided to continue another day. So glad we did because big brother loved every minute of the shoot on a sunny, much warmer day. Love how these turned out, mom is a goddess!
This family got a really cute storytelling session. Little brother was super fast and we captured his personality so well. These photos are full of life, movement, happiness and most important memories. You can’t just look at these without smiling, my husband did his magic to keep the little guy in the same place for just few minutes lol the rest was run run run haha
On this day the weather was all over the place, sunny and rainy all day! We didn’t know how to plan, whether to reschedule or not and few hours before since it looked nice outside we decided to shoot. By the time we got to location the sky changed and it started raining! We drove further to get away from the rain and didn’t have much time but the outcome is AMAZING! The wind and crazy clouds made stunning background, gorgeous water color and so much movement. I’m obsessed and so happy we didn’t give up that day. Valerie ended the session by dancing in the rain, I’m so happy with this story and of course with this package I can never show just a few since we end up with a lot of photos.
Few years ago I realized that my favorite style of photography was lifestyle, documentary of life! Everything big and little, personality, details, all the emotions kids go through at certain age, it’s all important for parents and has to be captured. I started posing clients in more candid ways, trying to get everyone looking at the camera wasn’t my main goal anymore and the images started showing more life in them. However my work was still missing something to me, which is normal, most artists go through creative blocks and often. I realized what was missing while going through old photos of my kids, growing up, time flies and all my favorite photos of my girls were the unposed, that showed them just as they are, where I followed them around and said nothing. So we added a new option for our clients! Take a look, the pictures show exactly what I mean with this gorgeous mommy, me and belly gallery. I’m so in love!
The dresses pictured are available in our client wardrobe collection!
How stunning is this mom! So gorgeous and there is really nothing else to write. I’m lucky to live in Florida, hang out at the beach as often as I always wanted to. My work allows me to do what I always loved and to meet new people. Pictures always meant so much to me since I was a little girl, memories are truly priceless. So thankful!
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!
