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!
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
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!
Sometimes families don't even have to leave their neighborhood and meet me on location because here in gorgeous Boca most communities are perfect locations for photoshoots! This was shot right in front of the house, it was a mini that was fast lol Why? Mostly because children this age don't want to spend few hours with me and don't want to hear anything about smile and stay. That's fine with me because my favorite shots are unposed, I just want to capture real life and we were successful in this case! We jumped, danced, made silly faces and just ignored the photographer haha therefore the results were hilarious and perfect in my opinion ;)
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
Loved this mommy and me session, it was such a perfect evening at one of my favorite locations. We really wanted to capture few nursing shots because those moments we mommies miss so much :) However for busy, curious toddler, new place and being outdoors was just more fun than eating. She was also a very serious model and her parents mentioned that it's just how she is in front of camera but I had my clown with me that day and we ended up with lots of smiles. The ladies in this family are absolutely gorgeous and big brother was amazing, such a sweet boy. Thank you for booking us!
By this time I think everyone who sees my posts and blogs realized I love families that include their pets in such important life events and just love people who love fur babies :) This big puppy was so excited to join his parents for pictures and did so well, very smart boy! He posed and smiled and ate peanut butter off her belly lol but yes that is what we did in some shots to have him kiss his sister. This mom and her belly I mean just gorgeous and she looked amazing 11 days post delivery when it was time for newborn pictures. Baby was sleepy and tiny and so very perfect. Before the session I go over nursery colors or just what colors parents prefer, I match the props, actually takes me a while sometimes to select exactly what I think will go with backdrop or certain prop. My house is full of props lol and it's just not easy with all the choices. Newborn photography is one my favorites, so I can be a perfectionist when it comes to what kind of props and how everything has to be set up. I adore the matching shirts shot, perfect family portrait!
So we are in process of moving from IL to FL and what a stressful experience it has been so far however I'm not going to complain because we have been planning this forever, therefore we can't wait to finally live in Boca Raton. While the move is keeping us all very busy I'm also changing a lot of things for the business, adding new exciting options for packages offered, getting whole new website and logo! Because I had to redo my site, all the blogs are now gone and I must have these gorgeous families on my site. This family had maternity and newborn session with us. Mom was stunning for golden hour session with her adorable little princess and the baby when he arrived at our studio was tiny, precious and sleepy! Love the memories we captured! Golden gown is from Sew Trendy and most of the newborn props are made by me, another job I adore is making those ;)
