The Jorva family is always one of my favorites to photograph. From their engagement session to their wedding and maternity portraits, Annia is one of the most creative women I’ve met. She’s always bustling with fun new ideas to photograph her growing family. Her husband Alex is as sweet as can be and their girls, Juliet and Veronica are too pretty for words.
This Easter was baby Veronica’s first and I think we captured the soft, sugary sweetness of her infant smile and the joy she brings to her family.

Who says holiday photos have to be posed around trees and fireplaces with Santas and sleds? Here in South Florida the sun is (almost!) always shining, and the beaches are open year round. Floridians live in a culture of perennial sports and summer skin, so when Jake and Zack wanted photos skateboarding on the beach for their Christmas pictures I thought – why not?

Suzzell and I went to middle to school together, but I hadn’t been in touch with her in forever, so when she contacted me about photographing her oldest son Julian’s third birthday I was beyond elated!
Julian’s birthday party was immensely imaginative and fun. All the food, decorations and goody bags were perfectly on pointe with the construction theme. Julian had a blast and I loved being able to snap shots while everybody enjoyed themselves!
One of my favorite things about event photography is the amount of colorful candid photos you can capture if you just step back and watch people interact, it truly lends itself to some sweet memories.

Oscar Wilde wrote, “Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.” We are entering into a new era with Vicente. The precarious preteen stage, and the other three are following closely behind. I hope I can dole out firm wisdom without being judgmental. I pray I can foster honest communication while still letting my children know we are the adults and they are the children. Navigating these dangerous parental dichotomies seems treacherous, but for now at least they are thrilled to incessantly chatter about their favorite scenes from Captain America, and we are free to relax a bit, even as this period of magic and freedom from self consciousness slowly draws to a close.

Some photographers aren’t fans of event work, they deem it ‘inartistic’ – but I enjoy it to the fullest! Meeting new people, watching families create memories, capturing great candid shots that show tender moments between different generations – event shoots hold a special place in my heart.
For Felix’s first birthday his parents planned this wild west theme to a tee – every detail was picture perfect and on theme. Everybody had a wonderful time, and I was so pleased to preserve these special memories!
