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!
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!!
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!!
If you’ve taken some time to check out my Website, Blog, Facebook etc, you will see most of my work is portraits. From Newborns to Maternity, to First Birthday shoots, I’ve captured so many great memories for my clients. But the one little missing puzzle to my business is Weddings. Why? Because I stopped doing weddings for 2 years to learn more and grow my business. The main reason I started my photography business almost 6 years ago was to shoot weddings. These past two years I’ve learned so much and made me realize it was the best decision I could have made. Now more than ever I am ready! Ready to capture your wedding day in a way you will never forget.
One of my goals for 2014 is to start rebuilding my wedding portfolio. Yes I’ve done weddings before but my style of shooting has changed so much I needed to rebrand and restructure. I felt the best way to get started was to work on a few Styled Photo Shoot. Why Styled? It allows me to bring my vision and creativity to life. A Styled Shoot allows me to show a different side of my photography and of course showing any future brides to think outside the box and be creative!
I wanted this shoot to be anything but traditional yet sexy and full of character. My dear friends and awesome neighbors Stephanie & Adrian were all for it! They were the perfect couple since they both have sleeved tattoos! I wanted specifically a bride and groom with tattoos that show. Once I had my bride and groom it was time to collaborate with some vendors to make my vision come to life.
My first contact for the shoot was Renata, my go-to Hair & Makeup Artist. She is the owner of Beauty by Renata and her work is absolutely gorgeous. We’ve been working together for the last 2 1/2 years and have built a great friendship as well. We talked about working together on a styled shoot a few months back and it was time to make it happen. I shared my ideas with her and she immediately jumped in with her ideas and BOOM…..we had a Grunge Styled Shoot idea!
It was also great to work with a new vintage company I happened to find on Instagram called Vintage and Stuff Miami. I crossed my fingers when I emailed them my ideas and prayed they were available. I jumped up and down when they said YES! Ely and Lorena were so sweet and practically given a week to help me with some pieces for the shoot. It turned out perfect!
Flowers were last minute purchases at Publix! I made the Stephanie’s bouquet myself and didn’t even know I had it in me ;) With all these little pieces put together I couldn’t have asked for a better turn out! Not only did each vendor participate but I wanted them to bring their own creativity to the shoot as well. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!!
