Daniella & Family | Miami Photographer

Before I became a photographer my career was in property management.  It was the job that paid the bills and I was good at.  It was just a job, a job I really disliked. I knew if I worked hard enough, my dream of being a full-time photographer would become a reality….and it did!  Till this day, I am grateful I was able to leave a job I disliked so much and do something that is fun, creative, meaningful and able to pay the bills of course.

On Sunday, my session with Daniella and her family made me realize just how special my job is and confirmed even more, how taking the leap of faith to leave my 9-5 was the best decision ever.  It gave me a new meaning to photography.  You see, photographers just don’t take pictures with a fancy camera, we make moments stand still.  A photograph triggers memories and helps you remember the past, good, the bad and life.  It is something you can hold onto forever.  This, this is what I was meant to do….

This session with Daniella was so meaningful. Not only is she turning two, she is battling one heartbreaking battle and horrible disease. She is fighting cancer.  When Dania, Daniella’s mommy contacted me to do the session I automatically knew this was a session I would never forget.  I am blessed and so thankful Dania chose me to be a part of this special moment. To capture her daughter having fun, playing and just being a two-year old.  She did amazing during her session and who knew my little gesture of taking bubbles would make her so happy.  She showed me that day what bravery is!

Mommy & Daddy wanted the grandparents to join us for this and her big brother Danny was playing with her, making her laugh. You can just feel the love from her family.  May God continue to give this family strength and hope for their baby girl.  No child should ever battle this disease.  My prayers and love are with them while they go through this tough time. I hope these photos bring a smile to their face.  2014-07-28_0001 2014-07-28_0006w 2014-07-28_0007w

Jessica + Jason | Maternity

These last couple of weeks have been nerve wrecking to say the least with all the rain.  I am a natural light photographer and love shooting outdoors but Mother Nature, Miami weather, has just not been friendly.  An hour before Jessica & Jason’s Maternity Session we were praying the weather would hold up and changed the location.  Thank God we were able to shoot and have a wonderful session.  Jessica & Jason are expecting a beautiful baby girl and were a dream to work with.  I certainly felt the love they have for each other and for their baby girl.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from their session. Enjoy!

Yvette & Frank | Maternity Session

I am so excited to share Yvette & Frank’s Maternity Session with you all. We started the session with beautiful lighting and couldn’t have asked for a better turn out. Then about an hour into the session, changing to the beach location, the black clouds and Miami’s horrible summer weather kicked in.  I gave them the option to reschedule, which they had already done on their first attempt to do their maternity session or wait for the storm to pass. Yvette & Frank were so sweet to work with and such troopers. We opt to wait for the storm to pass and we were so happy we did!!!! The golden light and blue skies after the rain were absolutely beautiful.  So happy we were able to finish the session and get some great shots!!

Anthony | First Birthday

It’s been way to long since I blogged. This summer has been so busy, Thank God, but I really need to catch up and show you all what I’ve been up to behind the lens!!

This photo shoot for Anthony is so special.  I love what I do but I love the fact I can capture these special moments for my family and the ones I love the most!  He is turning the BIG ONE and is such an adorable little guy.  He is our families Super Hero and is so strong, healthy and full of smiles. Can’t wait to celebrate his birthday next month! Here are some of my favorite shots from his session! OH and can’t forget this is by far one of the BEST Smash the Cake session EVER! No hands….dove right in head first LOL!!
