Engagement Photo Session at Dania Beach Pier, Fl.

Erika and Jeff are from Ottawa , Canada and were visiting Florida and decided to do their Engagement Photo Session at Dania Beach Pier, Fl. They happened to see my work as they googled me on the net and love the style of shots that I do.  We had such a great time together and it was fun to take their intimate moments. Their love for each other so genuine…making my work easy and effortless. They didn’t need much coaching at all because I could see the love in every shot. Love works in wondrous ways for this co-workers, now soon to be husband and wife.

This what Erika has to say, ” Jeff and I met while working at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel here in Ottawa, almost 7 years ago. We were good friends for a few years, and eventually became more than friends. I always thought he was a very caring and charismatic individual. His sense of humor and joyfulness is contagious, as I’m sure you saw during our shoot. We have a lot of fun together.We have been engaged for over a year and half. Jeff proposed to me while we were on a trip to Halifax, in a beach house on the ocean. Although we don’t live near the sea, we always feel very happy and free when we are near water. It just made sense for us to have an engagement shoot on the beach.”

I wish you Erika and Jeff a blessed marriage, happiness and wealth, to stay together for always…I wish you guys all the best! So happy for both of you.

Portraits at Vizcaya Museum, Miami, Fl

These Portraits at Vizcaya Museum of Ariana turned out to be phenomenal! Location was just right for this talented young lady turning 18. Are  you familiar with the song, “Thank You for the Music” by Abba? Ariana is basically the girl in that song.  According to dad, “she knew how to dance before she could walk, or sing before she could talk”. Her parents described her as a great blessing from God because of the talents she have, she is able to entertain not only her own family but even her friends at school. As a senior she is the president of their school choir ensemble.

Have you listened her sing? I love how she modulates her voice and I’m sure if she dances  ballet or any other dance she would be at it’s best always.

Wishing her a bright future ahead…

Kim and Ray: An Asian Wedding in Miami, Florida

The day started with the bridesmaids gathering at Kim’s Bridal Suite…busy preparing self, waiting for the bride to put on her gown. She was the most beautiful lady of the day. Everyone was excited for this Asian Wedding, they couldn’t wait for Kim and Ray to get married. All through out the day the bride was radiant in beauty, gushing every time Ray’s name was mentioned…the couple couldn’t help but exchange Starbucks coffee with each other, it shows how fond they were for the drink. The day went on smoothly and ended with big blast of dancing and fun during the reception. It was a day worth remembering…

A 4th of July Themed Photo Shoot at Treetops Park, Davie, Fl

What a better way to celebrate the holiday than a 4th of July themed photo shoot at the Treetops Park, Davie, Fl.

I had a blast taking these photos of cousins Morgan and Amber…they were so natural in front of the camera…though under the heat of the sun, they tirelessly delivered what I asked for to achieve…it was a moment of bonding time together while Amber spends time with cousin Morgan, coming all the way from Arizona.

Treetops was the perfect view for this all american themed photo session. Happy 4th of July everyone!

Portrait Session at Heron Bay Plaza Del Lago, Parkland, Fl

The day went smoothly as planned for a Portrait Session at  Heron Bay Plaza Del Lago, Parkland, Fl. Alissa came  with hair and make up done, wearing this floral dress which I personally love. The color and prints just complimented her pretty face. She was on for the shoot, excited and looking glam. Alissa then changed into a tight fitting coral colored above the knee dress that showcased her curvature. The session ended up with Alissa dressing up like a “hip-hop” dancer,  a dance which she definitely dances well. Everything went smoothly withe the photo session, she was a natural with her pauses, I found that coaching wasn’t necessary. See here how the photo shoot turned out. Meet Alissa, she’ll be 18 soon!AlissaWebpage 1 AlissaWebpage 2 AlissaWebpage 3 AlissaWebpage 4 AlissaWebpage 5 AlissaWebpage 6 AlissaWebpage 7 AlissaWebpage 8 AlissaWebpage 9 AlissaWebpage 10 AlissaWebpage 11 AlissaWebpage 12 AlissaWebpage 13 AlissaWebpage 14 AlissaWebpage 15 AlissaWebpage 16 AlissaWebpage 17 AlissaWebpage 18 AlissaWebpage 19 AlissaWebpage 20

A Family Photo Session in Downtown Hollywood, Fl

There is no better place than a Family Photo Session in Downtown Hollywood, Fl as a location for this family , Aries, Ayla, Caitlin, Brianna and Grandma Luz. It was such a humid day yet everyone made it through.

Ayla love the color red but she settled instead to a darker shade of pink with her outfit and Aries a baby pink top with khaki pants. The kids in their white dress and colored floral headband looked so lovely. Grandma Luz on the other hand blended with her green top and white pants.

It wasn’t easy to ask Caitlin to stay put. What do you expect from a toddler? But Caitlin listens to her dad but because of her fondness to run around, it was kind of challenging but we were able to get great shots. Meanwhile, Briana wasn’t feeling good either , just came from her vaccination, she would cry until she finally got to sleep, so the “baby in the basket” picture was captured. But nothing compares to the embrace of a mother, Brianna would wake up and cry every time Ayla tried to put her down on the basket and can only be consoled if carried. This is the beauty of motherhood…priceless!

In the end, what matters, we’ve created memories from the photos I took, memories for sure that would last forever.

Baby Tiffany : Newborn Photo Shoot at Miramar, Fl

Pink is every girl’s color and to have a nursery in this theme is heavenly…that’s what Baby Tiffany’s Nursery was. Thanking Ivelisse and Marco for opening their home to me  for this Newborn Photo Shoot at  Miramar, Fl., I felt so welcomed taking photos of Tiffany and the whole family in the comfort of their home. First time to meet Tiffany and she is more than 2 weeks old…I arrived while she was asleep, that didn’t do too good at first, how can I wake her up for a photo shoot? Took every opportunity though to take several photos of Ivelisse cuddling her…feeding her and making her comfortable as much as possible…what a beautiful baby girl. Congratulations to the new parents and big sister Paula.  To more pictures of Baby Tiffany in the future!BBTiffany 1 BBTiffany 2 BBTiffany 3 BBTiffany 4 BBTiffany 5 BBTiffany 6 BBTiffany 7 BBTiffany 8 BBTiffany 9 BBTiffany 10 BBTiffany 11 BBTiffany 12 BBTiffany 13
