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.

Some couples just have an energy about them. They gravitate towards each other even when in a crowd, they laugh together incessantly, and they build each other up, fuel each other to become better and stronger.

I was touched to photograph one of these couples on their wedding day last weekend. He also happens to be my beloved cousin and you may remember their engagement session here. The wedding was, in one word, emotional. It’s hard not to be when you are witness to this kind of celebration, the type that reminds of you of what’s real and important in life.

Without further due:

Love Ana’s shoes!

Ana and Roldan opted to see each other before the ceremony which I love. It gave them a chance to connect and have a private moment before their guests arrived.

The wedding party…

FUN!

I didn’t know my little cousin had these moves :)

A very emotional father -daughter dance…

At the risk of sounding old I must say this. Is it me, or are newborns stronger and smarter now a days? At five days old, little Anderson can lift her head and look around the room no problem. She was very alert and a complete angel during her newborn session yesterday, and it may be coincidence but she smiled a couple of times while I was talking to her about her mommy :)

This wonderful family booked their newborn session a while back and after much anticipation, their first baby girl finally arrived. I got to spend yesterday morning with them and their newborn princess and loved every minute of it.

Thank you guys for welcoming me into your home to document this amazing season of your lives. I can tell Anderson will be surrounded by so much love. Congratulations!

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.

I had an amazing photo session with these two lovebirds yesterday! Not only are they are drop-dead-gorgeous couple but also so sweet and FUN! I couldn’t help but include some of our funny outtakes amongst the pretty shots. It was extremely difficult to narrow it down to just a few because they were honestly all fabulous so forgive me for the length of this post :)

The setting is Hotel Palomar, one of my favorites in midtown Atlanta. Their modern yet inviting decor is breathtaking and the staff is top notch. This would be my choice of wedding venue if I were getting married in the city today; an intimate yet sophisticated retreat. The Hotel Palomar can accomodate up to 500 guests for cocktails and 370 for dinner. Catering is provided by their own Pacci Ristorante, which produces mouth-watering american and italian cuisine elegantly presented. For more information about having your wedding at this to-die-for venue please click on this link.

The exquisite gown is a Jasmine Haute Couture creation courtesy of Etain Bridal Boutique located in Ashley Park in Newnan. Etain offers a large and varied collection of designer bridal gowns in the South Atlanta area, but most important of all, they are NICE :) and down to earth. The ladies at Etain are committed to providing a personalized experience in finding and purchasing the most important gown you’ll ever wear. They also offer upscale mother of the bride, bridal party, and prom gowns.

Now on to my faves from yesterday:

Don’t quite remember what started this…

Soooo romantic…

This one makes me smile~

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 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.
