I think everyone assumes that we only do photography for babies and bellies, we are good at that after many years in business but glamour, fashion is how this journey started for me. I always loved photography, finished college with a degree in dietetics and got corporate job that had nothing to do with any of these things lol While I was trying to figure out what’s next for my career, I kept shooting for fun, which led to a cute vintage shop on Etsy and a lot of weekly photo shoots with gorgeous store model aka my best friend. We had so much fun and I miss those days! Anyway every girl needs a shoot like this so don’t be shy and book one for yourself!
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!
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.
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!
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
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!
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.
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 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!
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.
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 ;)
