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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
Another gorgeous, sunny day in South Florida with this beautiful couple and their doggy! Mom is glowing and we captured memories that will be cherished forever. So happy they included their little Yorkie she is adorable.
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 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 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!
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 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
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 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!
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.
