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

camryn {cooper city bat mitzvah photographer}

I loved photographing Camryn for her bat mitzvah Friday night, before her bat mitzvah service and at her delicious dessert reception.  She is a natural beauty, and I could see how excited and happy was for this big occasion and to be with her close family and friends.  Everyone loved the desserts, from the cotton candy and cookies, to the ice cream bar and mini key lime pies.  It was a wonderful night, and I am so glad I could document it for this wonderful family!  Enjoy your Sneak Peek!  xoxo

Personal Branding Images {south florida business portrait photographer}

When planning the session for your personal branding images, certain things should be organized and thought about ahead of the shoot.  To begin, think about where you are going to use these images.  Many clients use their personal branding images for their website, marketing materials, social media posts, e-blasts, press releases, for public speaking engagements and even guest blogging.  Because there are so many possibilities where you would need a photo to represent you and your personal brand, working with a photographer to create an arsenal of different images will ensure that not only will you have images that reflect your personal brand, but also that you are not always using the same one image.  Creating your own stock images will give you many choices when putting your image out there.  So, as you plan your personal branding session, try and think ahead to the future and know your vision.  Make a detailed shot list so that expectations are met, and that your final photo gallery includes all the different shots you need, from headshots, to group portraits, lifestyle photographs around the office, and so forth.  By being organized and expressing what you need to your photographer, the end result will be a gallery of images that represents your company’s vision and communicates your message to current and potential clients.

Here are a handful of the images from a personal branding session of one of my wonderful clients, Duree and Company, an amazing PR firm in South Florida.  We created headshots, lifestyle images, and images around the office so that they would have their own gallery of creative stock images to use in all different marketing areas, including website, social media and press releases.
