An unforgettable afternoon {Miami First Communion Photographer}

Posted: Thursday, September 29, 2016

I love Miss A and her incredible family. So when I met with her Mom to book her First Communion session I was beyond excited to know she had a very special attachment to Vizcaya, and therefore wanted her photos to be taken there.
Everything was perfect that day, particularly, Miss A who was a vision. Her dress had been bought by her Grandmother, and she wore her Mother’s veil. Ill admit it was a little busy on the grounds that day, but we made sure to find little secret areas of wonderfulness to get some beautiful intimate shots of Miss A on her important day. I love how her session went. I loved spending an afternoon with her Mom, and Dad, who came also to help.

I don’t take capturing moments like this lightly…I always have butterflies on the way to my shoots, hoping our session will be everything my client has in mind…and more, but after the day is done, and I come home to view the entire session, I am so happy to know my clients, their children, their families will have their portraits to admire and pass down for generations to come.

I know Miss A’s parents will always look at these images and remember our unforgettable day at an unforgettable location, with their unbelievable dream of a daughter. And that, makes me very happy!

15 going on 16 {Boca Raton Quinceanera Photographer}

Posted: Thursday, September 22, 2016

Miss M looked completely stunning as she arrived for her quince shoot. Everywhere we went that afternoon she was watched and admired. If only all the spectators knew that she was as equally fabulous on the inside as she is on the outside! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her since she was a baby, and as she grows into a young lady I truly am in awe of everything she has accomplished. Miss M is hilarious, and focused, committed and fun, and it was such a wonderful thing to be asked to photograph yet another incredible milestone in her life. I know this is just the beginning for her, there is nothing but the best in the years to come, and I can’t wait to be there to hopefully photograph it all!

Picture Perfect {Fort Lauderdale First Communion Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, September 20, 2016

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Miss M and watching her grow up the last few years. So it really meant a lot to me to be asked to do her First Communion portraits. It was a beautiful afternoon, and the wind made for some really gorgeous images of her. She looked like a complete angel and really shines in her photos. Miss M is a spunky, independent, brilliant little lady, and I just love knowing she has these beautiful portraits to treasure forever.

Ballerinas and a Barber Shop {Fort Lauderdale Dance Photographer}

Posted: Friday, September 16, 2016

I first got to photograph these beauties while on stage during The Nutcracker at Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet. From their talent to their poise, they were magical up there. I also knew they were Seniors and had a close friendship from dancing together for years. I thought it would be fun to take them out of the studio and get some creative shots of them venturing around downtown Wilton Manors, including a nightclub and a funky barber shop. These girls are the real deal. They are extremely smart, really funny, completely driven and just a blast to be around. They have their whole life ahead of them, and they have fantastic heads on their shoulders. I loved being able to document this time of their lives together for them to look back on as they venture onto whatever they set their minds on accomplishing. I wish them nothing but wonderfulness in their futures, and I can’t wait to see how far they go in life!

Miss K, Clay’s House and Me {Fort Lauderdale Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I first saw this amazing dancer at summer intensives while I was shooting at Artistic Dance Center. She stood out immediately. Not only the beyond adorable freckles, but her commitment and discipline really made an immediate impression on me. I HAD to work with her! I met with her and her Mom over coffee and they were ALL in! I had a fun location in mind, the driveway of a close friend and fellow photog, Clay Wieland. We planned for a great day of several costume changes and exploration of the neighborhood. It was really important for me during the session to show how fun and creative showcasing costumes in a different way could be! Miss K was fearless and unstoppable. We really had such a great time, lots of laughs, lots of fun, and some unforgettable images to always remember this day by!

Two Girls from Canada {Hollywood Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

When I got the email, I had NO idea what to expect from these two lovlies. All I knew was that they were in town for vacation and had only one day available for a dance photo shoot before they headed back home to Canada.
We met the day before and ironed out the details of the session, which was going to be the very next day. The girls were quiet and humble, I really had no idea of the level of their talents. But when they showed up to their shoot…WOW, they were ready to WERK. During the ENTIRE session I was blown away at their artistry and unbelievable abilities. They were fun, professional and limitless. We had such a GREAT time, even getting to meet the actual artist of one of the most amazing murals in downtown Hollywood, Tatiana Suarez, who was wonderful enough to take a quick shot with the girls. I enjoyed every minute of this shoot, and we kept going litterly till the sun went down. I since, have really loved being able to watch from afar (thank you Instagram) as they grow and give it their all at competitions and intensives throughout the year. I know they will only do fantastic things in the future, and I really hope they come my way again. Go get em girls!

The Ballet Space {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Alison Hesh, the Artistic Director at The Ballet Space at Soul Purpose Studio in Miami, Florida totally rocks my world! She is a fantastic instructor with a edgy modern outlook on teaching the next generation of dancers. I hit it off with her immediately and absolutly loved sitting in on a few classes complete with the first day of choreography for her upcoming “Nutcracker Dreams” (her original adaptation of the classic The Nutcracker production) I sooooo look forward to working with her and her dancers a lot more in the future because they are just crazy talented!

On the Ice with Miss A. {Cooper City Lifestyle Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 12, 2016

I met Miss A’s Mom at a lil coffee shop where we enjoyed chai tea and great conversation. We then took a walk to the lil park we would be shooting at for our session and while we sat there talking, I honestly felt like I had known her forever. So I couldn’t have been more excited to meet her daughter and hubby for our upcoming shoot! And it was a totally new experience for me, instead of trying to stay cool during my session, my nose was numb and I had to wear a coat to stay warm. It was SO FUN shooting at the ice rink that day, it brought back so many memories of my own days ice skating in the lake behind my house in Alaska. Miss A, was so sweet and just cooperative as can be to try any ideas I had for her. We then ventured to the lil park and had some fun there warming up and enjoying a beautiful afternoon.

Reach for the Sky {Boca Raton Dance Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, April 12, 2016

I was instantly jealous of Miss S and her amazing locks. She also is an amazing tumbler and dancer, I think I had her do an ariel AT LEAST 20 times, which she did, with not one complaint. She was so fun to work with and an absolute stunner in front of my camera. She worked hard during our shoot, all the way to the end, in which I asked her to jump and smile, multiple times, again, with not even a grumble. Miss S worked very hard during her session, and it shows. Looking forward to shooting her again soon, and until then I will just dream of having her hair.
