Annabelle + TJ | Destination Wedding Photographer

Naples, Florida is a dream destination for a wedding.  The gulf breeze kisses the white sandy beach and the sunset dazzles the shoreline.  Its one of the most romantic places to visit in Florida and one of the most beautiful places to make an eternal pledge to love someone for the rest of your life.  Annabelle and TJ were absolutely giddy to be saying their vows at LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort amongst their family and closest friends.  The day wouldn’t have been the same without the 4 giggly flower girls.  They kept everyone laughing and kept the dance floor hopping.  The ceremony was held on the gulf lawn, dinner was served poolside, and the get-your-party-face-on reception was themed in chic South Beach style decor.  The entire day was popping with champagne and class.  It was an absolute honor to document such a beautiful wedding day for these 2 love birds.  Cheers to a long and happy life together, Annabelle & TJ!

Lola | Newborn In-Home Photographer

Suzanne contacted me earlier today about getting some prints from this session from my professional lab. They had gotten professional prints through me from their 1 year session with Lola, but chose to go the digital route with her newborn session (session below).  In her email she wrote “There is a HUGE difference in quality when you develop them and when I do them, why is that?”.  I always tell my customers this but in our digital world, many of my customers still wish to purchase the digital files and will go to cheaper printers to get their images developed.  Getting your prints thru me means they come from a professional lab where they are individually color corrected by an experienced color technician at the lab.  My hopes are that all my customers will get beautiful prints to display in their homes and forgo the digital route.  Do you prefer digital images or prints when you get your family photos taken?  I’d love to hear your opinions and comments!

Enjoy this sweet little session with Lola and her parents.  Not only are they adorable but they are hilarious and had me in stitches during this session (and for Lola’s 1 year session).  Their banter is hysterical and I am so grateful to have them as clients!

The Donohue Family | Family Vacation Photographer in Florida

One of the best parts about living in a tourist hub like Fort Lauderdale is being able to see our family when they vacation down this way.  Kev’s sister, husband, & their 3 boys came down to Stuart for their vacation so Kev and I drive up to hang for the afternoon.   I packed my camera and asked Kristen if they would be down for an impromptu family session.  With 3 active little guys we pretty much let them play while I took pics.  My husband found out that little guys really like held upside down by their ankles – I’m not sure who enjoyed it more – Kev or the little fellers.  Enjoy these pics of their adorable young family.  You’ll be seeing more of their sweet faces on my blog (there was talk of another vaca down here in November).  Yippeeeeee!

Jessi | Fort Lauderdale Photographer

 

How do I even begin to describe my adorable friend Jessi?!  I’ll start with how we met- we met on Facebook. I know I know I know- but better on FB than in a bar, right?  About a year ago, she saw on my Facebook photography page post that my husband and I would be moving to Fort Lauderdale from Lexington.   We met up right when I moved down here and we just clicked- (would you expect anything less from 2 shutter bugs?)

Jessi is gorgeous, warm, genuine, funny, witty, real, fun, real fun, and a super talented photographer.  I’m sooooooooo lucky to call her a friend.

We went down to Hollywood’s Broadwalk, had lunch, snapped some pics, and had about 800 laughs.  You can find more of her work at J Photography.  Enjoy her gorgeous face!

The M Family | Cincinnati Newborn Photographer | Cincinnati Family Photographer

This in-home newborn session with this family was wonderful. The little girls were so polite and the house had an amazing calmness that one wouldn’t expect with 3 little girls running around and a new baby boy. This session includes my favorite newborn image- the one where Zach is cuddled up to his monkey.  Ahhh….it just melts me.

I was asked to come back to photograph Zachary for his 1 year milestone and took some more pictures of their adorable kids.  The M Family has a gorgeous home in Terrace Park so we were able to take their photos right at home.  I just LOVE photographing families in their home where all their family memories are being made.
