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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
One of my absolute favorite sessions, pregnancy is beautiful and I love to show off the bump with less clothing in a very tasteful way! My client is of course gorgeous and her choices of outfits, accessories and including the family pet was so inspirational. I couldn't stop shooting! It all started with crazy storm which ended up with a few epic shots and well the studio part you can see is perfection, she is a natural model. Love creating art like this with another creative person that appreciates photography.
What a gorgeous family at one of my favorite beaches Red Reef in Boca Raton! This was a milestone session for baby who is only 3 months old, he is such a cutie. Usually around this age I don't recommend a long session that way we have a happy baby and also family session is best because the little one wants to be held. Baby gave us a few adorable smiles but most of the time was distracted by all the noises like wind and waves so we ended up capturing the cutest expressions too! I couldn't wait to blog this photo shoot however we had to evacuate because of hurricane Irma and things are finally going back to normal. Thankful everyone is ok
This was actually a lifestyle session done at this family's gorgeous new home! We are in process of setting up in home studio and had to bring mini studio with us. Baby A was not tired at first and all he wanted was mommy. We got awake shots and sleepy once, pictures are adorable. I was in baby heaven after taking long break from work. I also realized that instead of heating up the room to over 80 degrees we can do the session outside, loving FL even more for this reason ;)
We have been taking pictures of this family for 3 years in a row and always have so much fun! Good thing we were on the go, moving, jumping, dancing and running because the weather wasn't the best that day. Love the outfits mom picked out, girls are absolutely stunning and Caleb is full of personality as always, mom's little twin :) As you can see my favorite shots from the session are always the unposed once. Don't worry I will direct you and tell you what to do but I'd rather it not be hey look here, stare right at the camera because lets be honest not only will the children be super bored in few seconds with a shoot like that but you will also be missing out on moments that truly show your child's personality.
How adorable is baby Liam! Soooo cute and in my opinion looks a lot like his big sister :) I am so lucky to have a job where I get to hold newborn babies for hours. Liam didn't want to sleep for a while but when he finally did the poses came out so perfect. We even got to use the truck and I totally love the awake shot. It's my favorite shots specially when babies this young look right at the camera, well more like my giant light but who cares it's perfect. Love his cheeks, hair and those little lips. His big sister doesn't really like photo shoots lol but that's ok we always figure it out and those few sibling shots we got are amazing memories for parents. Thank you guys once again for trusting me with your little one and well for just being awesome clients!
How beautiful is Lyka! I mean glowing and flawless! When my studio was all set up and there was some free time, I ran outside and got some red leaves in my neighbors front yard. Those were perfect for the Sew Trendy burgundy gown and we tried something new with studio set up. She was a natural in front of the camera and a beauty in every dress she had on. Henry helped me with throwing the dress since my assistant wasn't available that day and he did awesome job, super fun session! Thank you for booking us and hope to see you guys again!

This gorgeous family was referred by their friends, we are very thankful to have clients that recommend us! It was such a beautiful cloudy evening, we were able to use any background at the park due to overcast skies.The forest area was full of yellow flowers and the colors are starting to really look like Fall even though this session was in August. Honestly after working with kids for so many years I was shocked at how well behaved these siblings were, kids this age usually lose interest in taking pictures fast unless Mark and I work very hard to get their attention ;) but not this time! They were so good at following directions and were just natural in front of the camera. They also adore each other and when we asked them to just play and laugh, it was too cute. The session went by so fast with lots of smiles, hugs and we captured their love so well I had a hard time choosing which pictures to show on the blog, I wanted to post them all!
This is such a stunning family with a mom that is seriously a superwoman. I mean to look like this all while working and taking care of 4 children! We had so much fun at this session, parents are so sweet and fun to be around. It can be challenging working with toddlers and kids under 8 so we were all on the go and using every trick to keep the little once entertained but just look at what we captured. So much love and happiness! Mom also did amazing job with the outfits for the whole family, can you tell she knows what it's all about? That is because Nina is also a photographer located in IL. So thankful that they chose us to capture these moments and hope to work with this amazing family again!
This mom is just drop dead gorgeous, always! I knew she would look picture perfect for maternity and flawless right after having baby while she posed breastfeeding. I was in love with timeless, light and angelic look for her during maternity session and obsessed with similar look for nursing shots. This little princess has the most beautiful nursery! Also she is so lucky to have 2 big sisters that adore her and a brother that will protect her.
