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.
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
I'm so in love with this gallery, this cutie slept the whole time and the session went by fast. She arrived earlier than expected and I didn't even get a chance to blog this family's maternity, which was done at Red Reef Beach in Boca Raton, her mommy was absolutely stunning! We loved working with this family and can't wait to see them again in the future. Thank you for choosing us and letting me do my thing with prop choices, she was a dream model and I had so much fun capturing these important events in your life.
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!
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!
This tiny cutie was in our studio not long after we did maternity shoot. I had so much fun posing him, he was so sleepy and cozy in all the props. I'm so thankful for having a job where I get to hold babies, watch them eat cake for the first time or photograph moments that will mean so much to families in the future. We have been so busy shooting, editing and planning fun sessions but very behind on blogging and sharing. Stay tuned because we have a lot of new photo shoots to show off!
The best way to capture personality, love and just life is to photograph candid moments! I always try to get a few posed, everyone look a the camera shots but the rest is go go go, specially with kids. This beautiful family recently moved to FL to enjoy beach and sunshine! Don't think I'll ever get bored of shooting at the beach, such a gorgeous background and kids have so much fun! Also how adorable is the doggy, love it when families bring their pets to shoot.
