Hello all! I’d love to share with you an engagement session that I assisted my friend Diana with not too long ago. These two captured my heart from the moment I met them with their magnetic personalities! They made the perfect complement, Rebeka always laughing, and Romi forever making her laugh. I thought to myself, “This is how everyone should be just before their wedding: light-hearted, and relaxed.” I never saw a drop of worry, or insecurity. Why? Because they were utterly and completely engrossed with each other telling jokes, reminiscing and expressing their excitement for their big day!
More importantly, I would be remiss if I didn’t share my new favorite joke that I learned from Becky that day… wanna hear it? Here it goes!
“What do you call cheese that’s not yours?” …. “Not-yo cheese!” lol (say it faster!)
Thanks Becky + Romi! Congratulations to you both!

So… what’s the weather like in Michigan??? Well to be quite honest, I know nothing about Michigan other than the fact that my very close friend Alexis, my official restaurant buddy, is pursuing her Law degree there. I imagine it’s quite cold right now, and she is either digging her car out of snow, experimenting with a new recipe, or spending the day at the school library. What a life!
On one of her last trips home, Lexi asked me to take photos of her and her number one fan… her Mom. I just love to see these two together. They are the best of friends and are constantly looking out for each other. Lexi’s Mom is the perfect example of what a mother should be: nurturing, patient, strong and always counting on her daughter to do the best at EVERYTHING she does. As her rock, her Mom waits in anticipation for the day her daughter walks across that stage (for the third time) towards her dream of being a lawyer (and returning home).
Until then, they continue to treasure quick visits, and endless calls to each other, checking in and sending love.
On a beautiful day in December, we were able to capture the following shots at Tree Tops Park with a proud Mom and her loving daughter. Wondering where the Goodball part comes in? Well, at the end of this session, I made the mistake of asking Lexi and her beau if they wanted me to snap a few shots of them and after a weak 10 seconds of denial, they both ran over to a walking path and went into full foolishness mode!
I hope you guys enjoy and I look forward to documenting more moments with you!
Hello and happy pseudo Monday to you! I hope that those of you in the US of A enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend AKA ‘long weekend - whoop whoooppp!!!’
I’m spending my Martin Luther King Jr. day off shooting a good friend’s maternity session at the beach! I think that’s as good of a mix of business and pleasure as any. Great weather, great friends, celebration of life… BLISS!
A few weeks back, I was cyber-squealing about a wedding photo session that I was invited to be a part of that… ohh… just HAPPENED to be featured on the number one wedding blog for all upcoming brides…. (eeekkkkk) Style Me Pretty! Ok so, as promised, here are a few of my shots taken from this session.
As you might have read on SMP, this awesome wedding was the inspiration of Kasey D Weddings who wanted to inspire South Florida brides to think outside of the box with creating a wedding that had a winter/lodge/cabin feel. We incorporated things of comfort, luxury and homemade goodness to merge those Northern elements with South Florida’s trendy style. Shooting alongside my dear friend Diana Lupu, we were able to capture every detail and sweet moment to put together what I hope is an example of weddings to come…. UTTERLY CREATIVE!

Happy Monday to you! It’s the start of another week, and the end of a GREAT month! Yes, I am a proud Octoberarian! So sorry for the rest of you…
Today is Halloween but I’ve decided to skip Halloween and head straight to Thanks Giving. I’ve been in a very thankful mood lately (having time to reflect on what’s important to me) and I would like to share the reason why. I began this journey somewhat skeptical of what to expect, just deciding to jump in head first and ‘DO’ as much as I can with no end in mind. Well, that decision has been the scariest but BEST decision I’ve made and I’ve done so with absolutely NO regrets!
Though there are many THANK YOU’S to be expressed, I will take this time to say a special one to this cute couple… Warren and Tammy. These two are the lucky parents of Brandon and Caelyn and I think best exemplify my Thankful Theme today. Had I not picked up my camera, I would not have been able to witness this duo in action. After shooting their Pixie Caelyn, I decided to turn my camera on them and was able to EXPERIENCE what you are about to see. Their playfulness, their ease with each other… no wonder they have such a pleasant family!
At the sight of an empty swing, Tammy says, “Lets SWINGGG!”, Warren responds with a laugh and a not too convincing, “You must be mad!” lol. Of course it did not help his case that I was encouraging his wife to do the unthinkable! All in all, they both survived and the swing was left unharmed! lol
I truly had a wonderful time with you both and look forward to more of these moments with and without the camera!
A loving Family.. Priceless!!!
What is it about a baby that makes people melt? I’ll let you ponder this for a moment…
Here is Little Ma’am (Maaahm – as pronounced by her Mother). She graced us with her presence only six weeks ago and already she’s attempting to make her way off of EVERYTHING her mother puts her on! I tell you, it never ceases to amaze me how babies develop so quickly!
Her pure eyes, her warm skin, tiny little fingers… the way she can already track her mother around a room. These I think, give you a great head start to answering that question. What a wonderful start to life Kendall! As I like to say, there’s only UP from here!
