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!

I’ll admit this was my first prom session, and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Often during these milestones in our teen agers lives its easy to get caught up in it all. And then totally forget to take photos while its happening, then before you know it, its over. Having two teen agers myself I know it happens all too often. So I was totally thrilled to capture this fantastic night for these two so they have some really incredible images to reflect on as they move on to the next chapter of their lives, college.

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!
