Let’s ‘Shake The Ground’ {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, February 11, 2015

When they called me from Shake The Ground to book a product shoot to announce the launch of their dance apparel, I was totally stoked! Getting to work with amazingly talented girls wearing cool clothes to boot..Oh YEAH! And when we decided to head down to Wynwood..this girl couldn’t help but get just a wee bit excited! Once we all met down there I could tell it was going to be a fun shoot! Total collaboration between us adults, and tons of inspiration from these girls that totally rocked it!

A Night at The Nutcracker {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, February 11, 2015

A dream come true for this gal! Im a HUGE admirer of the theater and the arts, and have been taking my daughter to watch The Nutcracker religiously since she was 4yrs old. So to be invited to capture the Artistic Dance Center’s 2014 production of The Nutcracker was just pure joy for me. I think I was downright giddy as I roamed the backstage hallways watching the hustle of everyone getting ready for their big night! The russell of tulle, smell of hairspray and the energy you feel before a performance is just amazing to be part of as a photographer. Then to settle into a seat and get to enjoy the show while capturing beautiful dancing was such a inspiring afternoon for me! Thanks girls, and Im already hoping Ill be invited again for next years production!

Adopt Me Please! {Cooper City Portrait Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Every time I see this family I ask them to adopt me. They are really THAT amazing! They are so fun to be around and all of them are bursting with energy and laughter which is infectious. The adventures they go on together, stories they tell and love they have for one another is so wonderful to witness in a big family. I also asked the uber talented, Alison Frank Photography to come with me, which made the day even that more amazing! Not only am I inspired by her work on a daily basis, but her personality, professionalism and overall fabulousness is always so awesome to be around! So..high energy, fantastic family, gorgeous weather, beautiful location, cooperative kids (and parents) along with Alison Frank Photography, made this girl one happy camper!

Some Lyrical and Lacrosse {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, May 6, 2014

I could seriously post almost every image from this session, I just love them! The colors of this shoot blow me away, reminding me how fun it is to be young and have the world at your fingertips! The gorgeous Miss S, her beyond cool brother Mr.L, both were so unbelievably fun to work with! It didn’t even phase them to see a rap video being taped across the street from us…(gotta love Wynwood). Hope when I grow up I can be as cool as these two!

The Freckled Beauty {Cooper City Dance Photographer}

Posted: Monday, March 17, 2014

“Freckles are things so sweet,
as they fall onto a young girls cheek,
fine brown sugar sprinkled on the nose,
with pretty freckles a young girl glows.”

Oh how I LOVE those freckles! I have been able to watch beautiful Miss K grow as a dancer over the last 5 years. She has always carried herself as a dancer with such poise and confidence, so I was downright giddy finally being able to photograph her!

During this session I collaborated with Clay Wieland Photography who shot some stunning infrared which made this gallery everything I had imagined. Sure we had to trudge through the woods, and banana spiders and ants seemed to gravitate towards us, but through it all Miss K was a professional and helped us create some gorgeous images that will last her a lifetime!

Capturing their Passions {South Florida Family Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Before anything else, I’m a Mother, which in turn also makes me a Baseball Mom, and Tennis Mom right now. I try to make it to every practice, and every game. And while this can get exhausting to juggle on top of the rest of the days responsibilities, I cant help but continue to be completely amazed at the commitment, responsibility…and PASSION my children have for their extracurricular activities! They too must juggle school and homework and still have the time and energy to put it all into the activity of their choice. And its not just my kids…its all the children around me…! Whether is is horse backing riding, dancing, ice skating or piano lessons, I see children excel and exceed all expectations, and it BLOWS ME AWAY!

And so, as a Photographer can I just say I LOVE capturing this spirit they have in their sessions! The leap of a committed dancer, bond of a rider, connection of a musician…it is such a special moment of a child’s life. And I find myself proud of each and every one I am honored to photograph!

Graffiti and Grace {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Saturday, January 25, 2014

”Most people think of ballet as children in little tutus.
They don’t know it is sweat, blood and tears as well!”
–     Nan Keating

There is something so humbling when photographing young girls that dance.  Their commitment, passion and complete dedication to the art is something I never had for anything when I was that age. It’s so much more then the costumes, which are gorgeous… oh how I love tulle and sequins… and they look like living dolls with their stage make-up…
But it’s the grace and poise that these girls possess that rocks me to my core.  

Miss M has been dancing for as long as I can remember, and I’ve known her since she was born. I’ve had these images in my head for the last few years since her mother, also a former dancer, told me she was going to start on pointe.  They were both SO patient with me while I “tried” to explain, and to their amusement “show” them some poses that had been swirling  around in my head.  Miss M executed every single one with such ease,  and didn’t even laugh at me during my attempts…although I know her Mom got a kick out of it.   I cant wait to see where this beauty’s life leads her..I just hope she allows me to capture it along the way…

And extra kudos to her brother who was so understanding the whole afternoon and even gave us some amazing shots at the end of our day!
