When I was told John and Melissa were expecting their second child I was so thrilled for them! I’d done mini-sessions with their daughter Delaney, but we hadn’t done a full portrait session since their engagement photos in 2010. When Melissa told me she wanted maternity photos I was beyond excited!
The weather was overcast, hot and humid – in other words a typical south Florida summer evening – but Melissa, John and Laney were all in great spirits and their session is one of my all time favorite maternity shoots!

I’ve been photographing Jake for the last several years and I was so ecstatic to be taking his First Holy Communion photos. He is growing into such a bright young man, and it is always a pleasure to spend time with him.

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.

Weddings are wonderful, but renewals have a special place in my heart. An act of rekindling love, appreciation, and adoration, renewals are always amazingly special.
It was lovely watching not just the bride and groom interact, but witnessing how much fun their family and friends were having too.

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.

It’s rare to photograph a large family where everybody is not only photogenic, but in pitch perfect harmony with each other. The Perez family was just that needle in the haystack! Even more inspiring was how happy, silly and loving they were. I usually spend much of a session trying to get my clients to feel at ease – being in front of a stranger who is photographing you can be incredibly intimadating – but the Perez family was a dream! I was the one who felt instantly comfortable with this big, beautiful family.
These are some of my favorite family photographs ever – I think the easy laughs and smiling eyes captured speak for themselves.

Jessica and Rolando have the most gorgeous family, and I was thrilled to be shooting their family session. Their three children are not only beautiful but some of the most well behaved I’ve met! Jessica’s younger sister and her best friend also took part in the photo shoot, and I think these pictures capture what a fun, playful and loving extended family they are.
