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!
Another busy Holiday season and so many blogs to share! I’m trying to catch up on editing, even taking a little break from shooting so everyone gets their photos on time. The great thing about living in Florida is working with families that are on vacation from all over the world. This gorgeous family was so fun to work with it’s always a compliment when another amazing photographer books you. Love 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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
This gorgeous family booked us for maternity and newborn session! They wanted my favorite outdoor location, beach of course :) The weather was amazing that day but it was also windy which was a huge plus for the gown Jennifer picked out! My assistant aka husband MZmoda didn't even have to throw the gown, wind took care of everything, end results are perfect, dreamy beach maternity. Baby is already here too and I can't wait to meet him!
I was looking forward to meeting this gorgeous couple and our goal was to get some outdoor shots but weather had other plans. The beach looked kind of intimidating that day and as soon as we started shooting it was pouring. We did get one amazing shot and you can see how the sky looked, no photoshop there! After getting soaked we left for studio but stopped at a park to try again since rain stopped for just 20 minutes it seemed like lol Anyway the weather was unpredictable that day but my client looked stunning and this gallery is beautiful plus I have to mention Valerie is so sweet, pleasure to work with, can't wait to meet their princess soon!
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 ;)
I'm just so lucky to have clients like this family. I was super excited to hear from them and plan this maternity session. Thank you Masha for buying such cute matching tutus, I think those shots came out adorable and your daughter will love looking back at these memories some day. Ellie is a super fast, tiny cutie and we captured so much love at this session, I can't wait to see her in the studio again soon and meet her little brother. Just look at how stunning mom is, she is natural in front of the camera and her belly is perfect, I didn't want to stop shooting and we also got lucky with gorgeous sunset that evening. The outdoor part was right in my neighborhood and it's one of my favorite locations due to light! Once again thank you guys for booking us, can't wait to see you again soon <3
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!
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 is two separate sessions, one was done when little one was just 3 months and the next one was for his 1st Birthday! Both indoor and outdoor and so many amazing moments captured! Beautiful family, natural in front of the camera and just look what a difference, how fast little once grow and change in just few months! So happy to be able to capture memories for parents they will cherish forever, family pictures are just so important.
This gorgeous mom was in my studio with her husband, son and sisters. I just couldn't stop shooting, such a natural model and so fun to work with! VZmoda Photography offers a collection of maternity gowns and this client also brought few of her own outfits which were beautiful. Big brother had fun capturing memories of such an important time in this family's life. Hope you enjoy this gallery as much as I do and if you're interested in booking us for maternity, family or newborn photography please contact us!
