ATLANTA - MIAMI CUSTOM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

When I was working in Miami last month I photographed this beauty and her session just never made it into my blog.

I had so much fun working with Marla. She is seventeen and one of the most happy, genuine people I know. Us cubans do this huge celebration when a girl turns fifteen; it represents a coming of age, and entering society as a lady. A huge part of this tradition is a photo shoot in a formal, princess-like gown and other fashionable outfits. How fun is that?!

Life got in the way for Marla around her fifteenth birthday. So here we are, two years later, catching up with tradition and having a blast while doing it. The plus side is less pressure to perform. At seventeen Marla has an amazing outlook in life and a real knack for letting go and having the time of her life, even if her heels are killing her.

Ever since we moved to our house in Georgia four years ago, I have marveled at this driveway a few blocks from our home. The perfect line of trees is always there, patiently waiting for the next season to bring about a new color. In the summer, they are a lush green that sparkles when the wind dances through their leaves. In the fall, they are bright orange-red, like a floating flame leading to an endangered house, this past week the first signs of spring are starting to paint them a cottony white, my favorite, and in another week or so they will change to the lightest, most tender green.

Today I took a few snaps of this pretty spot for the first time in four years. The transient quality of nature and its changing palette are a reminder that part of the beauty of this workd is that nothing stays the same, that we are allowed to change, and with each season there are new reasons to rejoice and grow.

Spring has me gaga over flowers. Ever since I made a few bridal bouquets for photo shoots I have had a craving to make more arrangements. I think playing with the colors and design of the arrangements is like playing with composition and color in photography, they are very similar. Here is my latest bouquet.

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.

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.

I met with this gorgeous couple this afternoon for a shoot to document their love. They have been together since high school and going strong. The friendship they share is evident; they can’t stop grinning and laughing with each other. We had a great time together. Thank you guys for choosing me as your photographer. Enjoy your glimpse of our session.

A sweet moment…

Jennifer, you are GORGEOUS! :)

You can feel it in the air, mornings and evenings are cooler, the light is getting softer, you can actually breathe when you go outside rather than trying to aspire vapor. The days of green grass, slip-and-slides, and popsicles are once again coming to an end.

For my kids, that means spending every afternoon in the backyard, walking barefoot on the soft green grass, doing scavenger hunts and decorating the concrete driveway with whimsical landscapes rendered in pastel colored chalk. And I happily shoot away the array of colors.

I had the pleasure of documenting the engagement of this beautiful couple this evening. We had lots of fun together. They have the kind of sarcastic sense of humor that I am oh so familiar with, so we hit it off right away and I feel like we’ve been friends forever.

Congratulations on your engagement! Enjoy your sneak peak!

And last but not least… the Zoolander shot… I told you I would get it out of you :) Great job guys!
