We had so much fun, you can see it on the photos! This family followed my directions and there is so much life, emotion and happiness captured, they will smile every time they look at these! The sky looked crazy by the way, it was about to rain but we didn’t let that stop us from shooting plus the colors and clouds add gorgeous effect. We had fur baby at the session, he was happy too, running with his sisters, I think we even got him to smile lol
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was such a fun session I didn't want this cutie to leave! Our cake smash session includes portraits with parents, sibling and even bath to get all that frosting off. 50% of babies will not like the cake smash, it's the texture and new experience therefore we like to capture other milestones during 1st birthday shoot. This little one loved the cake made by www.allstarcupcakes.com/ located in Boca Raton. Isn't it a gorgeous cake?! It was delicious too! Mom was the one that styled the session and I couldn't wait to see unicorn theme cake smash. Baby was all smiles, she loved her bath too. I'm obsessed with these photos and the little birthday girl, she is just too cute!
