Every soul is different and unique, so I pride myself on having a style that is as versatile and authentic as every client I am honored to capture. A photograph, a precious moment in time, is something that has been, and always will be your most precious and priceless thing you own.

Some Ballet and Bougainvilleas {West Palm Beach Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, October 10, 2018

When their car rolled up, all I could see was mounds of white tulle, her huge smile, and that glittering tiara, so I knew immediately we were going to have a marvelous session! She honestly looked like a princess when she stepped out of the car, and when she went up en pointe in that dress..WOW! When she changed into her 3rd, more casual look and we were on our way down to the beach, we came across a sitting area surrounded by the most beautiful bougainvilleas, that happened to match PERFECTLY with her headpiece, which is now a tradition to wear during quince in her family. We then ventured down to the beach and ended our session with some beautiful captures of her dancing as the sun went down. Miss J is driven and strong, as well as funny and creative. Her Mom and I hit it off immediately which made the whole shoot so much fun! Delivering her final album was the icing on the cake, it turned out gorgeous and it always makes my heart happy to know they have it to share with generations of flower headpiece wearing family members to come!

Pink Tutus and Dimpled Elbows {Hallandale Beach Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, October 3, 2018

As World Ballet Day 2018 comes to a close, I thought it would be prime time to reflect on my session with some beginning ballerinas at the amazing studio, Kirova Ballet Academy in Hallandale Beach. This was the youngest class I have been invited to sit in on, and I can tell you, I don’t think I stopped smiling through out their entire session. The giggles, laughter and unabated enthusiasm to just dance was infectious. Freedom from any care, new friendships made while holding hands, bouncing curls and pointed toes, all a reminder to why the art of dance is so fulfilling to all the dancers I have had the pleasure of working with. Before there was auditions, and intensives..there was just that love to dance. Music and movement filling a every day void of wanting more. So I hope on this day, and every day for that matter, all the older dancers out there remember to just…dance…and laugh…and giggle…and make new friends! And thank your Mom, because I bet it was her dream before you even realized it was yours. She was the one perfecting that bun, for always having snacks and extra bobby pins at the bottom of her purse. And the one loving and watching and taking dozens of photos of you when you were young so you never forget that little beginning ballerina with a pink tutu and dimpled elbows.

Koi Ponds and Quince Dreams {Homestead Quinceanera Photographer}

Posted: Monday, October 1, 2018

I have never photographed in such a magical place before. And having a guided tour by the owners while we shot was really the cherry on top. From the dressing rooms, to the stables this place was enchanting, and we had it ALL to ourselves. We all loved taking in the surrounds while capturing breathtaking images of Miss A for a belated Quince session. The weather, location and that gorgeous gown added up to a pretty much perfect day for all of us. I enjoyed laughing and getting to know Miss A, who was shy but so so smart, and wonderful to be around. She continued to be radiant, while I litterly melted in the Florida sun, a true beauty she was. We ended our day with a yummy spread of desserts and sandwiches in the kitchen on the property, and all reminisced on what a sublime day we all had. I left tired, and stinky..but so full of happiness and excitement to get their viewing gallery up as soon as possible.

After delivering the finished images and her GORGEOUS metal print, I received the most special surprise from Miss A, a beautiful handwritten card thanking me for her photos along with letting me know what a great time she had. The unexpected thoughtfulness of this young lady brought tears to my eyes as I read her letter over and over again.

That card will always hold such a special place in my heart and a permanent spot my desk!

Tale as Old as Time {South Florida Quinceanera Photographer}

Posted: Thursday, September 6, 2018

I’d seen her many times before when shooting at the studio, she was always the quiet one in the back of her ballet class. Sweet and shy, and with tons of talent.
When we met to discuss her upcoming session, she let me know that her Quince was going to be a Beauty and the Beast theme. Her dress was nothing less then dreamlike and the sentimental location was a sure recipe for a perfect shoot.

But when Miss K stepped in front of my camera for her session, something truely magical happened.
She bloomed.
She shined with the most confidence and elegance throughout her shoot. She moved so gracefully, that she brought tears to my eyes. She became a different girl that day, a young women that had discovered her power and presence.

It was an unbeleivable time to capture. One I will never forget, and I hope neither will she.

Japanese Gardens and Capezio {Delray Beach Dance Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 3, 2018

I’ve loved watching Miss G grow as a dancer over the last few years. Her Mom is the director and owner at a fabulous dance studio, Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet in Fort Lauderdale, which Ive had the pleasure of working with for awhile. Not only do they have incredible talent there, but they also have a beautiful environment of family and support. So spending a afternoon with them both was really a dream. We used all Capezio leos and tutus and explored all over the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. Miss G was amazing to work with, powering through our session with beauty and grace! We shot at the Gardens till we were nicely escorted out, but continued to shoot locally till the sun went down. Her energy, and pursuit of perfection is inspiring, and I was happy to spend such a wonderful day with her and her Mom!

Best Friends Forever {West Palm Beach Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 3, 2018

I knew the minute we discussed setting up this shoot, it was going to be emotional. A fun beach shoot for two best friends before one moved away. A situation I could relate to, since I did a similar one years ago with my daughter and our best friends. At the same time it made me so beyond happy to know that we were doing this, that they would have these photos to cherish and look back on for many years to come. Their laugh was infectious, their friendship, immeasurable, and these memories…priceless.

A Spanish Flare {South Florida Dance Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Vizcaya made for the perfect backdrop for Miss S and her classic costume and beautiful technique. Although it was a bit crowded we made our way around finding some stunning locations to highlight her and her amazing dancing. She was so sweet and soft spoken, and an overall just wonderful young lady to work with! I had a wonderful day exploring and getting to know Miss S and her equally kind and helpful Mom.

My Miss E {Cooper City Quince Photographer}

Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018

The minute I saw her I broke down in tears.
This is Miss E, my niece. I still remember the first day I saw her, only a few weeks old. And now, there she was, standing in front of me as a young women. She is the sweetest, most humble, intelligent young lady that I know. So for her quince session we wanted to make sure her images reflected her modest, down to earth personality. It was a very emotional shoot, I continued to get teary eyed throughout our session, which gave me a beautiful insight on how the parents of my quince sessions must also be feeling. It was a special day, and I am so happy I got to be part of it.

The unstoppable Miss J {Dania Beach Dance Photographer}

Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018

From the moment I met Miss J and her mom at the coffee shop, I knew they would be a blast to work with. We had incredible weather on the beach that day and Miss J was up for anything and gave me 100% throughout her shoot. She was a powerhouse,talented and determined. When I told her about a vision for a creative shot I had imagined, she was so trusting and excited to try it, and ended up being one of our favorites of the session! Miss J and her mom were so fun to hang with for the day, I really enjoyed every minute of it, and I hope they did too!
