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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Do you have a pet you love? Please hire us for family photo shoot :) Why us? Because we are obsessed with dogs, cats and will love all your pets. Just like working with adorable babies, pets are joy and we love to spend time with your furry child. This sessions was amazing, the doggy is gorgeous, sweet, I got so many kisses and smiles, just look! So lucky this beautiful family chose us! Courtney's make up and hair was done by very talented April South (facesbyapril) my clients have been so happy with her services and you can see why. I need more families with pets, that is all.
Another gorgeous soon to be family of 4 met us at Red Reef beach to do family pictures on a gorgeous day. It was sunny and very windy which makes for great ocean view, with huge waves and lots of seaweed. I love shooting at this location because we always start with golden light trees view and move on to sand with water, variety for clients and a great place to spend time. I had so much fun with the princess, little one was full of personality and loved the camera, in fact she was sad to leave. Love these photos!
This adorable, 5 month old baby boy was visiting his grandparents in Florida and we got to capture the memories! It's such a cute milestone, it was a busy spring break kind of day, a lot of noise, people walking by and we still got so many smiles. Weather was perfect, baby was happy and pictures are priceless. My favorite once are the kisses to mommy, he loves her so much just look at that excitement. We even had a chance to get some photos in their condo that has the most stunning decor all original from baby's great grandmother.
How amazing are these vacation photos, so many fun moments, so happy my clients hired us to capture them at the beach! I was even more excited to see clients from IL and the last time we did a shoot for them was maternity session. Weather wasn't the best that day, forecast showed rain so we rescheduled for noon, it was windy, cloudy, not warm but you can't tell because we had fun. Can you tell how candid moments are my favorite kinds? I don't mind 1,2,3 look at the camera if clients request but my goal is to capture memories you will look back at one day with a big smile, where your family is doing what they do best, being themselves. I was also in love with that colorful background that was on the building next door and pool area had the perfect view of it.
Mark and I came by to capture this family in their home, it was adorable watching big sisters so happy and proud. Pictures of the girls with baby melts my heart. It wasn't an easy journey specially for mom but it's always worth it and most importantly everyone is healthy! This is what lifestyle sessions look like through my lens, gorgeous family!
This adorable little boy turned one and his parents wanted to capture the memories of this special milestone. He was too cute, we got a ton of smiles outside and in the studio. He loves balloons and bubbles just not cake lol which is not a surprise. Many babies feel this way when they try cake for the first time. We got his feelings on camera, great memories!
Gorgeous mom and adorable baby were in our studio for newborn pictures, how cute are these?! Also who doesn't love dog with baby photos, it's my favorite! Sophie is a very smart big sister, she posed like a model because we had cheese lol This little guy got a lot of awake shots which is awesome. Love the colors parents chose and that newborn smile is priceless.
This gorgeous and sweet family booked us for newborn and maternity session. It was such pleasure working with them. Maternity session was done at the beach and the weather was challenging that day but the photos turned out beautiful. This time we met at our in home studio for a cozy newborn photo shoot full of parent's favorite colors and the baby did amazing job sleeping through all the posing and set ups. I was able to use all the props I planned and this gallery is adorable. Older sister posed like a little model for sibling shots. You can see love in the moments we captured here.
I still can't believe that it's December and I'm working outside, not just outdoors but at the beach, my absolute favorite place to be ;) So glad many of my clients want beach sessions, Mark and I feel like we are just out having fun, not even going to call it work. It's been a very busy month, meeting new people and just look at my adorable clients. This session was so much fun, super photogenic family and very sweet. Love their outfits! Weather was perfection, baby was all about playing in the sand, Mark had to fall in water few times to get older brother to smile which was probably a pretty good show for everyone. Love how we captured this beautiful family!
