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!

I’ve know these kiddos since they were in preschool. They are some of the most fun kids I know, and their Mom is pretty cool too! She is always up for an adventure when doing their yearly photos, and this year was no different. We had a great time cruisin’ around Fat Village in Ft. Lauderdale finding all sorts of eye candy to shoot! And this brother and sister actually LIKE each other, which is the best thing to photograph year after year! I cant wait to see what we create next, but till then…enjoy!

After having to reschedule last summer 2x due to nasty weather…we couldn’t have had a nicer day on this Monday morning! Overcast, slight breeze…heaven! An impromptu need to use the loo brought us into gorgeous art studio and some of my favorite shots of the day…gotta love when the unexpected produces some crazy cool images! The amazing Miss N was so fun and easy going I could have photographed her all day. Wynwood is always a candy store for my imagination..and having such a fun and bright young lady to photograph made my day pretty much perfect!

The details of this Quinceanera were crazy gorgeous! And even more fabulous is the fact that the Mom of this beautiful girl did all of it herself..now that is LOVE! Everywhere I looked I was mesmerized by the exquisite flower arrangements, centerpieces, chair covers, and overall feel of the night. Oh and did I mention the cake?..That amazing cake! So much love was put into every piece of this event, you could litterly feel it! Was I a little jealous my own mother didn’t throw me this amazing of a bash when I turned ’16’…of course! But it was beyond fun to watch Miss V have the night of her life sharing the whole experience with her family and all her friends!

Yep! She is really this beautiful on the inside too!
I knew she was a stunner a year ago when we did her boudoir photos as a wedding surprise for her lovey hubby. But capturing her awaiting motherhood brought out a whole other side of her beauty.
Was it the glow from carrying the lil being she’s anxious to meet? Or the happiness of being completely and utterly adored by her wonderful husband? Or maybe its the ease and comfort she feels from her family that will be with her every step of the way (even on this blazing hot Floridian shoot.)
Whatever it is, I am just so happy I was asked to capture it. Their love is contagious, I couldn’t help but smile…and it just makes my heart so happy to know this lil girl will be coming into a world lathered in love!

In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”

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 sun was out, the wind was blowing, the grass was just manicured, a perfect day to be on the fields!
A wonderful family and fellow baseball enthusiasts…how could we NOT hit it off immediately? Oh, and her son wants to be a photographer when we grows up, and his younger brother is just plain adorable..instant LOVE! This family was such a blast to photograph, they reminded me why I love what I do so much, not only did I meet a new client, but hopefully formed a new friendship that will last a lifetime!

“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!

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!

”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!
