Miss A at The Alchemist {Wilton Manors Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, September 13, 2017

She spent her birthday with me! How great was that? We had such a great time hanging at The Achemist, finding all sorts of unique little spots for us to photograph. Every single image reflects Miss A’s personality and individuality! She is so creative, fun, easy going and an amazing dancer. I couldn’t be more honored she wanted to spend her special day with me.

At the Last Minute {Fort Lauderdale Senior Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, January 25, 2017

First thing I do when getting an inquiry of a session is schedule an introduction meeting, usually over a good cup of coffee. This way I can not only meet my clients, but get to know their personalities, what they are wanting for their custom session, and go over every detail from what they will be wearing to what will be our location options. This was not the case with Miss K and her Mom. I received an email asking for a senior session on the beach, and it had to be done the very next day. I admit I was nervous, not only for never meeting this client, but not being familiar with the hotel location either. However, the minute I saw Miss K, who was a complete stunner, and meeting her Mom, who was the most friendly wonderful women, I knew this session was going to be a blast. And it was! We had such a fun time just strolling around the hotel and making the most of several lil nooks and crannies around the property. We ended the session with a few shots on the beach as the sun went down, then actually took a moment to take it all in once we were done. I absolutely loved meeting these two fantastic women, I felt we were always meant to met and Im really enjoying watching Miss K kicking butt in tennis and accomplishing so much during her Senior year in Pennsylvania! Heres to last minute meetings and hoping our paths cross again some day!

The Next Chapter {Fort Lauderdale Maternity Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, January 24, 2017

I’ve been blessed to have known this incredible couple for years now. I was lucky enough to be there to photograph their beautiful wedding, to capture her raw beauty for her boudoir session, and now…Miss E at her most stunning, when she is expecting! They are the couple romance novels are made of. So to be asked to capture the next chapter of their love story really was a most wonderful experience. And…I might have been asked to photograph the next chapter too….

To the Firehouse, and Beyond {Tampa Maternity Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, January 24, 2017

My daughter and I hopped a plane to Tampa for this crazy fun session! It was a very cold day out for us Floridians, but the expecting Miss D didn’t even bat an eyelash. She was up for anything, including probably walking a good 5 miles by the time we were done with all the locations of this shoot. And every place we went was more amazing then the last, the Tampa Firehouse Museum, was so amazing to shoot at, and her and her husband were the most gorgeous couple, and totally in love, which made photographing them so much fun! The fact we also had the two best assistants of all time with us made the day so special, (thank you Ash and my sweet daughter)!! We then ventured to the University of Tampa, the campus took my breathe away, the photo opportunities there were endless, and Miss D was rocking it till the very end!

The whole week end in Tampa with this really great couple and our friends was so incredible for me and my daughter. And Im so happy we got beautiful images to capture it all. And no trip would be complete without our traditional crepes at La Creperia Cafe, an overall amazing time!

A beach all to ourselves {Palm Beach Dance Photographer}

Posted: Saturday, January 21, 2017

We show up to a quite beach location scouted earlier that week, only to see we were not the only ones that wanted to go to the beach that day, it was PACKED. And while I admit it threw me off a little, Miss K handled it with calmness and security and overall professionalism. She didn’t even hesitate when asked to leap over and over again on a crowded boardwalk. Or go up en pointe while an seemly endless line of cars drove by. She was so confident and laid back, she really made me feel we were the only ones of the beach that day.

I’d seen Miss K dance at Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet and she always caught my eye for not only being a strong, technical dancer, but one that LOVES to dance! I mean it radiates on her face every time she performs, which in turn makes her even more exquisite to watch. She is so driven and talented, all while being humble and courteous and just lovely to work with.

A PRETTY PERFECT DAY {Fort Lauderdale Quinceanera Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Once I got the text of Miss S stunning red quinceanera gown I knew we needed to find that ‘perfect’ location. We finally decided on the historic Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale, with their rich art decor background and gorgeous house grounds. However, with pouring rain the night before we really had no idea what the condition of the location would be. We all kept our fingers crossed all day. We showed up to not only dry walkways, but a cool breeze and the most helpful group of volunteers there that made the day pretty much perfect, complete with a golf cart shuttle service. Sharing this experience with Miss S, her inspiring Mom, and wonderful Grandmother was so overall amazing for me. She was glowing that day, and just so fun to work with. She is a incredible young lady, and you just can’t help but smile and laugh when your with her, a pretty perfect day I won’t soon forget!

Just like Family {Miami Quinceanera Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, January 18, 2017

The minute I met Miss A, her mom, and little sis at Starbucks, I instantly felt like family. Which made coming up with locations and the look for her session so much fun and exciting. I admit, she was my first “cupcake” pre session, and being able to capture her in the dream quinceanera ball gown was really amazing. It took a small village of family and close friends who came along to the shoot to help which made the day really really special. And the day was no joke, hours of location changes, clothes changes and Miss A up for pretty much any idea I had for her. Her quinceanera party was equally fun and full of family and friends, I had such a great night with them all. I look forward to keeping in touch with this really amazing family, and watching Miss A continue to blossom into an incredible young women.

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.
