ATLANTA - MIAMI CUSTOM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I was working in Miami last week, and my first session there was very unusual for me, because it was a family of adults.

Jennifer, the oldest daughter contacted me a while back about photographing them. This foursome is very close-knit despite the kids being fully grown. Jennifer is very passionate about her parents and very protective of her little sister, and she reminded me in a way, of myself. I love that I was able to capture this phase of their lives.

Here are my favorites:

I have so much respect and admiration for love that lasts a lifetime.

This past weekend I photographed my good friend’s parents who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary very soon. These images are pure beauty to me. They are so happy, and at peace, living a life surrounded by kids and grandkids who adore them. I wanted their session to reflect this stage in their lives. Here are my favorites…

They say the more you like someone, the prettier they become in your eyes. When I uploaded this session  to my computer I was  fascinated by the cuteness quotient of this brother and sister. These kids have become very dear to our family. They are close friends with my daughters and the foursome is together sometimes almost every day;  they are practically part of our family.

It was unusually warm this afternoon for a New Year’s Eve and we took advantage by ditching our jackets and kicking off our shoes, letting our toes have a feast on the wet grass. I am glad to enjoy this little bout of nice weather before the frigid temps coming in the next two months.

Here are my favorites. Enjoy your sneak peek guys!

And this is the last blog post / session of 2010! What an amazing year this has been! A year of change, good change. I am so excited to see what 2011 brings, I have a feeling it’s going to be the best year ever!

Happy 2011 to all. May you always be blessed with love, health, and abundance :)

According to some locals this is the first time in 17 years it snows on Christmas in Atlanta; hurray! My friends up North may be laughing at our enthusiasm right now, but truth is, we enjoy every little bit we get, even if it is just a few miniscule snowflakes. There is something magical about snow that makes the world brighter and more cheerful, and specially around Christmas time.

Now being born and raised in an island in the Caribbean, my tolerance for cold temperatures is something to be ashamed of; I only lasted about fifteen minutes outside. Enough to get involved in a snowball fight with the girls and get a few snapshots of the action. My goal: to get some thermal gloves and long-johns so I am better prepared when February comes around.

Some of my favorites from today,

I love having daughters; playing dress-up and princess and having tea parties. I am blessed beyond belief with my two girls, but when I was younger, I always pictured myself as the mother of boys. So it’s no surprise that despite being very girly girls, my little princesses play wizards and knights, dream about their first car being a 1969 Mustang GT500 in grabber blue, and can throw a football better than I ever could, all with a fuschia boa wrapped around their neck.

Yet, when I get to photograph boys, a whole new world opens up to me. I love their mischief and spunk. Their constant wrestling and fearlessness in grabbing a frog or lizzard. Boys have an appeal and beauty of their own.

These two were a little shy and as sweet as can be. Here are my favorite shots of our session.

When I first got there, this little one wanted nothing to do with me.

But we soon became friends..

This boy has the creamiest skin I have ever seen, and look at those freckles!

I love being witness to this kind of bond between siblings. These two truly love each other.

This is their spirited dog Dasher, I think she wants to be a photographer when she grows up, she kept going for the camera ;-)

Thank you for letting me document your lives. Enjoy your sneak peek!

I spent some time this afternoon photographing this blue-eyed beauty. She is an aspiring actress and model with some impressive roles under her belt already. Here are a couple of my favorite shots from our session:

I love kids. I remember being in such a rush to grow up and now I long for the freedom of being a child. We think we’ll be free when we reach adulthood but little do we know that childhood is true freedom. I wish I could get that message across to my kids: enjoy that feeling of complete adventure and spontaineity that you have right now, absorb every minute of your innocence, but I sound like an adult when I say those things.

It took about a millisecond to convince these kids to lay on the grass and roll down the slope of their backyard; their parents are probably going to remember me for a long time thanks to my little idea. :)  If I could postpone twilight and hadn’t had 20 lbs. of photographic equipment on me, I would have rolled down the hill with them (again, adult thinking). In retrospect, I wish I would have and then their parents would remember me for a long time as a complete lunatic.

These kids have the most amazing personalities; we hit it off right away and although I didn’t roll down the hill with them we did hold hands and skipped down the road together. Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon.

I just can’t stay indoors with this mild, gorgeous weather and the splashes of jewel tone colors everywhere. Fall is my favorite season and I am taking full advantage of it this year. My favorite shots of the day… :)

Whenever I have a little bit of down time in my schedule inevitably the camera turns to my own children. Especially at the age of two just a couple of months make a huge difference in the way they look and express themselves. So this weekend me and my favorite toddler enjoyed the change in weather in our own backyard, and while she discovered leaves, acorns, and pointed out squirrels, I snapped and soaked it all in.

As a photographer, I am always behind the camera and seldom in front of the lens. So, determined to get some family photos this past weekend, I took the DIY route and captured some fun and cute moments of my troup. Here are my favorites:
