Proposals: Cole + Lora Click here to view ONLY this message
    Witnessing Cole's marriage proposal to Lora ranks up there at the top of beautiful experiences. He loves this girl......and they are perfect together. I just know it.  When Cole decided to propose to Lora, he didn't just take her to dinner and propose afterwards. Even though, he did actually take her to a special dinner......because it was her birthday, too.  He obsessed over every little detail from having his friends set up a beautiful array (meaning lots and lots) of candles on the boardwalk at the beach, including lanterns and a heart shaped group of candles, champagne, crystal glasses, oh, and a gorgeous Willow Tree figurine......because Lora loves Willow Tree. And me? Once he called me to capture this moment, I also obsessed right along with him........I knew this girl was super special and I wanted it to be perfect for them. Which.....it was! Just magical. So I lurked in the background until it was safe to capture more photos with flash. 





    9 PM and pushing the limits of photographing a dark scene......I'll never again challenge the high cost of top of the line Canon lenses and cameras!  I bow to you, Sir, errr...Madam Canon! 



    With such perfect planning, I'll bet Cole instructed the moon to be full! Gorgeous night! And I assure you it was still very dark because I had to ask his friends to shine his phone light on my camera dials.......thanks guys.






    Once we all came out of the dark shadows, the laughter began............so  happy for these two. 



    Great job with the heart guys!



    Lots and lots of love here!


    Isn't this magnificent? I think it is an accurate description of their love.





    And I don't think this post would be complete without a shout out to Cole's teammates with the Washington Nationals. They helped make this incredible moment come true for Cole and Lora.......Also, I want to thank them for putting up with all my annoying phone calls/texts "Are you here yet? Where are you? Are your on your way? How many candles do you have? Put more over here......." Lots of love all around. You guys rock. Cole & Lora, wishing the best of everything in your long, happy journey together. Enjoy all the moments!

Age 1 + Awesome/Space Coast Family Photographer Click here to view ONLY this message
    This family session was a real treat for me. I love watching families grow and change thru the years........and lately, seems each and everyone of them is expanding...........all at once!  I photographed Little Miss here when she was born and she was beautiful then and more so now with those eyes full of light and sunshine in her hair. Our mission was to photograph little birthday boy for birthday #1! Of course we had to include the whole family.......because, after all, when he grows up, we definitely want him to see what an awesome family he was born into as well as how full of personality he was at this age. Such a fun loving little guy! Of course, he'll already know about the awesome family part.......but pictures have a way of filling in those little spaces of times that, as a kid, he might not exactly remember....

    Starting of with big sis.......she is super sweet + energetic!





    We started of with some serious looks! (And his serious look is so cute!)



    But that went away pretty quick.......


    A natural beauty and perfect poser....I'm thinking she's used to this camera thing!



    Love these parents. I can tell their kids rock their world! 



    Love how he posed here......but, for sure, it was random.......and a lucky moment.





    Happy boy!!!



    I just love everything about this last shot....not sure why, but it makes me smile. I'll close this this comment. You know, sometimes people ask me, "Why would I pay for a professional photographer, we'll all have cameras now?" And really, I am addicted to my iphone as well......so many cool apps, etc. So much of the time, that's all any of us need to capture everyday random but important (to us) moments. Sometimes, though, going beyond the snapshot to capture your kids and family, especially those milestones, will be priceless to you + your kids in the future. But, you already know that since you've stayed with me up to here..........Smiles!

Space Coast Maternity + Newborns: Welcoming Jayce Click here to view ONLY this message

    Getting a bit behind on the blog but the good part is that I've got lots of new babies, new mommies + brides to post in the coming weeks. And.........I'm here to announce there's no shortage of pregnancies and new babies on the Space Coast. Seems like all my brides said, "now's the time to start that family". I love watching the natural progression from in love newly weds to in-love-with-baby parents. Brings the true meaning of love full circle. Today's post is a handsome little guy that is going to be a nature lover. We took him outside at the end of our session and he immediately went into a peaceful-like-I'm swinging-in-a-hammock deep sleep....I wanted to join him. Mommy is super gorgeous and we did a few maternity photos literally days before he was born so posting a few of those as well. Ashley was rocking the maternity look and I have no idea how she was able to look so beautiful and graceful with that baby bump. Wishing this new mommy & daddy great joy in watching this little guy grow. He's a keeper!







    And here's Jayce!



    Look at those kissable little lips!



    He' going to be tall.........look how long he is all stretched out...A real cutie!



    Dad set everything up and was ready for this shot! All credit goes to Dad for this cute idea.







    Mohawk!











    What? Doesn't every baby dream better among the spring flowers?



    Sweet dreams, Little Prince!

Monique+Anthony/Weddings/Florida Photographer Click here to view ONLY this message
    A fun wedding post coming at you today. These two, Monique & Anthony, I just love.......actually make that 3 because lots of love for Jessica, too (Monique's beautiful daughter). I photographed her sweet 16 party o-so-long ago in 2011. One of the most fun times ever. Seeing the entire NY families again was really special because they're so warm & kind............AND I've never been to be to a NY couple's wedding without meeting at least one current or former "NY cop"...........great guys........thanks for helping me with the ring shot below....I give total credit to you! Monique & Anthony held their ceremony at the First Pentecostal Church in Palm bay & my heart skipped a happy dance when she told me she had factored in plenty of time prior to the reception for intimate photos at a private waterfront residence.....well, sort of private if you don't count the ducks that wanted to share in the fun! (See below!) Enjoy a sample of the photos. They truly are beautiful together.









    Most beautiful Mom & Daughter ever!






    Monique & Anthony, so very grateful that I have come to know your wonderful family & I wish you a lifetime of golden moments together!

Portraits & Head Shots/Melbourne/Fl Click here to view ONLY this message
    Today's post is a fashion shoot done just prior to the Valentine themed photo shoot with Erica. A number of these photos have already been seen on my facebook page but not everyone is a member of FB. Enjoy this post as Erica's photos are always gorgeous and she's great fun to work with as she's willing to do whatever it takes to get the shot! Mini photo shoots are a great way to keep your portfolio current and if you're updating your resume or social networking pages, creative head shots go a long way toward helping you stand out in today's super competitive job market.



    Pulling together several different looks/outfits will help you get the most out of your photo shoot.


    So pretty. One of my favs.


    But, I just love this one too!


    Location & great lighting........it's totally a big deal! So, bring your hiking shoes along too!











    And if you're looking for a little "what to wear" color inspiration, just take a walk outside for some "pretty color ideas". Remember to keep it simple and choose only a couple of colors to pull together your outfits. Also, for outdoor photoshoots, bolder colors (vs muted colors) will be more dramatic and avoid too much blending in and competing with the landscape colors. Really love how Erica's choices demonstrated those ideas. Also, when working with your photographer to create poses, pull together ideas that personify your style and personality. Think "how will I feel about these photos in the years to come as I look back on them?" So if that quirky photo idea of rain boots & umbrella in the middle of a field on a sunny day sounds cute now, will you be saying in years to come "How silly. What was I thinking?" Well, maybe that's not such a good idea. Point being, you want your photos to have a timeless look that shows just how beautiful you are now and always. Smiles!
