Kristin and Daimion: Hollywood, FL Maternity Photographer

Kristin is a friend of a friend who saw her friend's maternity photos on Facebook (you can see them here, liked them, and wanted me to take hers . I love that! And it makes me feel really special. It also made me really determined to deliver amazing photos.

We ventured out in Downtown Hollywood for some urban photos, and finished up at Arts Park for some nature. All along the way, Kristin and Daimion were as into getting great photos as I was. I feel like I'm starting to say that a lot, but when it happens, the photos just have that extra magical quality. And I have been frantically editing since, because I couldn't wait to post this magic!

It started getting dark, and we didn't have enough light for their third outfit change, so we scheduled a follow-up session in a few weeks. I'm looking forward to adding to the amazingness of this couple's maternity portraits!

Christina, Mark, and Ava: Hollywood, FL Family Photographer

I had an open session yesterday due to a cancellation, so I posted it on a mom's group I'm a member of. Christina responded, and I'm so glad she did! She told me this would be their first professional photo session as a family, which made me determined to take the kind of photos, and provide the kind of experience, that would make me their first and only family photographer!

My sessions yesterday were in Downtown Hollywood. I've done a lot of sessions at my local parks, which have been very good to me, but I was up for something new. We walked around and enjoyed the murals and urban setting, and captured a great mix of posed shots and candids of this adorable family. I can't wait till next time!

Three Generations at ArtsPark at Young Circle

My friend from work had a baby a few months ago who from pictures, I knew to be a cute one!  We kept saying we should make plans so I could meet her in person, but it was one of those things that never worked out… until today.  Her mom was going to be in town, so I suggested we get together, and I could photograph the three of them.  We met at ArtsPark at Young Circle in Hollywood.  I am a huge fan of Romero Britto, and taking pics of his butterfly did make me a little giddy.  It was beyond hot out, but we were all troopers, and these gals managed to turn out some smiles, and some great photos.
