addy (south florida quince photographer)

Addy’s quince portrait session was very special to me for a few reasons – first, she is the daughter of my very close friend and fellow photographer, Heather of Heather Coronel Photography, second, we were shooting in two incredible locations (including the super cool vintage bookstore, Old Florida Book Shop), next because I think Addy is simply a beautiful, intelligent, thoughtful person, and lastly because I got to hang with these two fun ladies for almost 7 hours!  Addy could not have been more stunning for her portrait session, she seriously rocked her gorgeous dress, and her hair was beyond incredible.  She was a joy to photograph and spend time with, and I am so happy that Heather wanted me to capture this special time in her life.  Love you both!  xoxo

sophie {miami teen photographer}

How gorgeous is Sophie?  She seriously rocked her photo shoot, in all of the cool spots we found down in Miami and at the beach.  She is amazing – able to go from her beautiful sweet look, to her adorable big smile naturally and in just seconds.  We walked around Miami’s Design District, which had such a variety of backgrounds to choose from, and then stopped at the airy, cool cafe called OTL, where we all cooled off with their very delicious coconut lemonade.  We ended our photo session on South Beach, with an amazing, stormy sky, and the lights of the city popping on.  I loved our adventure, and I loved hanging out with you, your mom, and Sydney.  Can’t wait for your bat mitzvah party!  Enjoy your Sneak Peek!  xoxo

izzy – class of 2019 {south florida senior photographer}

Meet Izzy, Class of 2019!!  I am probably a little biased because I adore Izzy so much, but she is beyond gorgeous, bright, sporty, determined, and so much fun to be around.  I loved taking her out for her senior portraits, and she was amazing!  We also did a little side trip to a place she loves – Chick-fil-A – for her favorite cookies and cream milkshake and a side of chicken nuggets.  I will miss my one-on-one time with Izzy when she graduates next year, but I am so grateful for our talks and our time together.  Wishing you a fun-filled, exciting senior year!  Love you! xoxo

eli – this is 11 years old {south florida child photographer}

Truly one of a kind, Eli is adventurous, mischievous, inventive, often hilarious, and sweet all rolled up into one adorable and handsome 11 year old.  I am so glad I could photograph him this summer, during this in between time amid elementary school and middle school.  I loved documenting his time in his room, and then also photographing him doing what he loves most these days, fishing.  And, thank goodness he caught a fish!  To say I adore him is an understatement, and I loved having my one on one time with him as he seems to be growing up right before my eyes.  Enjoy your Sneak Peek Gena and Garett!!! xoxo

growing up with good friends {south florida tween photographer}

My daughter has been blessed with amazing friends from her elementary school years, from friends in her classes to her softballs teams and in between.  And, I have been so lucky to make wonderful friends from the parents, friends that are part of my “village” and who mean so much to my family.  Reese is my youngest, so these are our last few days of elementary school, which is an exciting but bittersweet time.  While I love seeing her grow up, I miss my little baby girl, and can only hope that she will still be my snuggly girl as she goes through her tween and teen years.  So, this past Friday was the 5th grade social at her school, and I could not pass up the chance to photograph all these beautiful friends before they move on to different middle schools.  To all the moms, my lovely friends, who were there and whose children are Reese friends, thank you for being a part of our wonderful time at CPE.  I can only hope that these friendships stay strong and last many years.  Love you all!  xoxo
